            I know you're suppose to through products out after a bit but I have had ONE tube of this prime for a year and a half. I'm finally at the bottom, but somehow the product just keeps coming out! By far the best product! I bought two at the same time because I thought it would run out quick. Boy was I wrong. It smells good, it's lightweight, creamy, and leaves your face feeling nice and smoothe. I LOVE this primer!

                      Hi gorgeous! Our POREfessional face primer is a primer so it is considered as makeup. This pore-minimizing primer is best for hiding the appearance of pores and fine lines for smoother-than-smooth skin. If you're looking to control all-over shine, we recommend the POREfessional: Agent Zero Shine (Item #: 2268638)! This shine-control powder instantly minimizes shine and helps smooth the look of pores. The invisible translucent shade is perfect for every skin tone - wear it over POREfessional for maximum POREfection! xoxo B
