          Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Face Primer:

          I always have struggled with my pores showing and looking super caked in makeup whenever I try to cover them. This stuff is AMAZING! I immediately noticed a huge difference when I put it on. My pores disappeared and my face looked so smooth and well blended. The first day I wore it, I was flooded with compliments about my complexion! This is a must have :)

              Overpriced. Ineffective if you have large/extensive pores.

                The Benefit Porefessional primer is good, but just good. It goes on well and is silky smooth. It keeps my makeup in place for a full 12 hour day. As far as minimizing the appearance of pores, however, I'm not so sure. But it is a good primer. I would buy it again.
