    Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Pore Perfecting Complexion Primer Potion:

    I had only used this product for a few days when I purchased my second tube because it was on sale and I knew this was a new must have for my makeup bag! It does a great job of filling in pores and creating a smooth canvas for make up. It helps extend the wear of makeup also.

    Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Pore Perfecting Complexion Primer Potion:

    I bought this primer on a whim because it was 50% off. It was such a good deal, I couldnt pass it up! It goes on smoothly and blurs the look of pores. I dont think this would be suitable for oily skin, where it does contain an oily silicone base. I have dry skin so it worked perfect for me. Made my makeup last all day.

      Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Pore Perfecting Complexion Primer Potion:

      I was hoping to minimize my pores but no such luck. I usually have fantastic luck with Urban Decay but not this time. I think it makes my pores look larger. I also find that I have to heavily 'scrub' my face morning and night to make sure it all comes off. If not it leaves a clumpy mess behind. I DO NOT recommend this product it is a waste of money.

            I tend to reserve 5 stars for the products that really have the wow factor and, for me, this is one!! I will say I tried the product because it was on sale and I figured I had nothing to lose, but I will absolutely purchase it again at full price with no regrets. This primer goes on smoothly and works well with both my mineral veil and powder foundation (I only wear one powder at a time depending on the kind of coverage I want) in that it doesn't get chalky or overly built up on my face. I feel I have larger pores and this primer works well to minimize them. I work in a hospital and wore this product for the first time on a day we moved a 40 bed unit clear across campus and after a 12 hour day, it was still going strong. My forehead had a hint of shine to it but nothing compared to what I would normally look like with the primer I used previously. This product has been so effective I will definitely branch out within this brand and eagerly try more!!

                  This primer does it's job, a very meh job. When you apply it feels smooth and after you apply foundation it looks good. Not great, but good. After a few hours your face ends up looking like a glazed donut. Super shiny and oily. I don't have oily skin and I use a matte mineral powder foundation. I've even paired this with the All Nighter Setting Spray that Urban Decay offers and I still get the same result. I thought it was because I was using too much but even when I barely use it I get the same results. It honestly doesn't keep your makeup in place. The setting spray does a better job on its own than paired with this product. And finally, forget about touching your face! Your foundation feels like you've applied a thick clay mask to your face.

                  Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Pore Perfecting Complexion Primer Potion:

                  I used this product under foundation and by itself for a smooth finish.
                  The great thing about this product is that it goes on smoothly and it doese blur pores. I would say it works on all skin tones becase it is practically clear.
                  The not so great thing is that I think it caused me to develope more pimples than normal. My skin is oily/combination but naturally very clear. I noticed I started to get a few acne spots here and there while using it that I wouldn't normally have so I stopped using it and the pimples went away.
                  Bottom line: It's probably ideal for dyer skin types. I would not reccomend for someone with oily skin.

                        The Pore Perfecting Complexion Primer Potion features a soft, matte finish and is super lightweight - perfect for oily skin types! It is formulated to help foundation apply smoothly, last longer, and totally minimize the look of pores and fine lines.

                        Another great option for those with oil control concerns is the De-Slick Makeup Setting Spray, which helps to keep skin shine-free all day:

                        If one of your main concerns is to control oil & shine, we recommend the Pore Perfecting over the Brightening & Tightening! Pore Perfecting features a soft, matte finish and is super lightweight - perfect for oily skin types!

                        A:

                        This product is lightly tinted and sheer and designed for all over application rather than spot application. It does not provide the full coverage that a spot concealer does, and it works best as a skin perfecting primer to even skin tone, minimize the look of enlarged pores, and prep skin for foundation application.
