    Creates silky smooth skin, hides enlarged pores; wonderful base by itself or under foundation. I've tried many different products and this one hides my enlarged pores the absolute best! A little pricey but worth it.

        There are better primers out there. I normally use Tarte Poreless 8 hr primer and I got this instead and it is a different consistency and does not do as well of a job. Tarte primer is way better and keeps liquid foundation on longer.

              It's lightweight and works well under any type of foundation. I have extremely oily skin and this helps keep my makeup on. It doesn't look like it's "melting" when I use this primer. I do have to blot every once and awhile, but my skin is excessively oily. It does help and it keeps my makeup in place for the most part.

                  I have oily skin & prefer a matte look. This did not work for me at all & I had a pimple the next day. Will not repurchase.

                  Comments about Smashbox Travel Size Photo Finish Foundation Primer Pore Minimizing:

                  I was really excited to try out this particular one as I have used the "clear" one in the past. I STILL bought the other one again anyways because it had been so long that I forgot what happens when I wear it. So, they both feel nice and soft, BUT for some reason when I go to put it on I have to keep messing with it for it to settle in my skin. Then it becomes streaky looking. Once I get to where it needs to be, I apply foundation, but noticed that it would start to "peel" into little silicone balls almost. (That's the best way I can describe it) As soon as I saw that I remembered that that was the reason I didn't buy the "clear" one a second time in the past.

                  Pores were clogged the next day after using this, had to return I think porefessionals works better and no breakouts.
