So I bought this because I am a sucker for all things that fill in my pores... It works just as well many other pore perfecting primers that I have used.

    I have oily skin. I use this after cleansing and before applying my makeup. I dab a small amount on my oil spots...forehead, nose and chin. My face stays oil free all day and makeup lasts all day. Perfect for oily skin.

        I like this primer better than the classic smash box primer because it's not as greasy in texture. It's still really smooth and makes applying concealer and powder so much easier.

              I do really like it. The texture feels great and it applies very nice.
              The cost is a little much for me using it every day

                    This is the best primer I've used. It's great for overall coverage under foundation OR by itself with no make up. I have a naturally shiny face, this definitely helps to tone it down a notch.

                        A:

                        The Pore Minimizing Photo Finish Foundation Primer is oil-free and formulated for all skin types. Smashbox Cosmetics does not test for or claim that this product is noncomedogenic (non-pore clogging). We hope this info helps!
