Rated 4.07 out of 5 stars
Most Helpful Positive Review Like product but packaging needs redesign
I like this Cover FX blurring primer. It applies easily and smoothly and preps my skin for my foundation. There is color in the product but it does not color the skin...only mattifys. I gave 4 stars instead of 5 stars because of the packaging. I had been using until I couldn't squeeze out more. I cut the tube in half to scrape out the remaining thinking it would be a tiny bit. It turns out it was plenty. So I scraped out and put in a jar I had on hand. It filled this .50 oz jar. About 1.5 inch tall jar. Im going to try to attach a picture. Too expensive of a product to waste this much due to packaging.

Pros: it *really* mattifies, it blends very well, and it lasts a lot longer than Benefit's Porefessional.
Cons: it still only lasts about four hours before it's left you looking even more textured than before, and it didn't smooth things out that much to begin with, and it costs a ton. ZERO scent.
Still going to keep trying, just in case it was user error, but I had this same problem yesterday when the makeup artist tried it on me. I suspect it just doesn't work very well for everyone, and that's a hefty chunk to spend on a gamble.

will continue to buy as long as they keep it in stock and don't change anything. It was given to me by a friend a few days ago. I'm 56 tan and have large pores and combo skin. This has been an unexpected saving grace. I don't need anymore bb/cc creams I found what really works for me, it smooths out my skin even around my large nose and large pores. I am very GREATFUL.
Love love love
Ally from South Carolina
This product is amazing!! My face looks so smooth and like it has a filter on it- but in person! I'm not sure how people don't like this but I suppose everyone's skin is different. For me, I'll be using this a long time!!
I love this stuff!
Sunny mood from Brick, NJ
This truly blurs my large pores and light wrinkles. If you like a natural look, you can wear it on its own. I put it under my eyes as well to smooth that area out. It's fabulous! A bit pricey, though, which is the only drawback.
My foundation looks so much better. Very similar to Benefit POREfessional, another favorite.
Red from Bartlesville, OK
I was excited to try this, but it didn't help my makeup at all. I tried different ways and even different foundations. Definitely not worth the money. It also has some ingredients that can clog your pores if you have problem skin. Sending back.
GREAT EVEN BY ITSELF
Zach from Atlanta
Wash your face, add moisturizer and a dab of this in the T-zone, and out the door for a completely natural look. I have small/medium pores and it just makes everything feel silky smooth and blurs my pores. Have realistic expectations. It's not a miracle in a bottle, but I keep repurchasing it. I like it more than the Smashbox pore-filling primer for my skin.
The worst primer...
Cassie from San Antonio, TX
....I have ever used!! Didn't blur, minimize pores, OR help my makeup stay in place. By the end of the day it looked like someone had rubbed their hands all over my face.
Hate This Primer
Karen the angry MUA from New Jersey
I typically used Cover Fx's gripping primer and I absolutely love it, and I definitely recommend that primer. However, I recommend you run far far far away from this one. I bought it because I assumed that since I love the gripping primer so much that the blurring and pore minimizer one would be great too. WRONG. It's horrible. My makeup doesn't stay on and constantly moves throughout the day. Also, maybe it's just me and my skin, but when I was applying the primer it would not actually stick to my face. I would have these little tan balls of primer just all over my face, and from far away it would make my skin look flakey. I absolutely hate this product. 0/10 do not recommend unless you enjoy wasting money.
Fills in everything
Dee from California
Great for blurring out imperfections.
Your pores enemy , definitely buy it
Jdarling from Long Beach
Press it in smooth it out it's not mattifying it simply leave photo finished appearance without the dryness. The consistency is almost powdery like yet creamy.
I love this!
Sunni50 from SC
After my moisturizer I apply before I put my foundation on. I sometimes just put this on for a smooth looking no make up look.
Best best primer for large pores and even smoothing skin..
Pree from San Jose
My new favorite
Jas from Florida
This is one of the best primers I've ever used! It really does fill in the pores and fine lines and makes my skin look really pretty. Only bad thing I would say though is the weird color and it smells kind of minty?
great primer for blurring
beachmom9 from dmv
I haven't tried this before due to my oily skin and only got it due to the sale. It's a different consistency than most other primers out there and it doesn't feel like silicone to the touch. Loved how it blurred my pores and deep forehead wrinkles. Dab this in vs. rubbing all over your face. Love the ingredients and the fact that it didn't react to my sensitive skin! Will continue buying!!!
Almost as good as Benefit Porefessional
MareBear from Little Canada, MN
I put this primer just behind Benefit at minimizing the appearance of the larger pores around & on my no nose. The prices are comparable. Not bad. I'm glad I gave it a try.
BEST Primer for Oily Skin
Alexis from Vero Beach, FL
I live in Florida, and have oily skin. AKA the duo for a constant oil slick. This is the ONLY primer that somewhat combats my oils and helps my makeup from sliding off my face throughout the day. And don't let the price scare you! A little goes a long way, and this tube will last a LONG time. The only other primer that holds a candle to this one is the hourglass mineral veil, and that price is much steeper than this.
This makes my skin so smooth
Haily from Michigan
I received this product from BoxyCharm and I will continue to purchase this on my own, I have many blurring primers for my pores and scarring and I really love this product! I find myself reaching for this over my other primers, it evens out my skin, is so smooth, and has a nice tint if you need to do touch ups. I would definitely recommend this product!!
ZaZa from Phoenix
I have Lupus and it has left scarring on my face. this fixes about 75% of my skin texture issues!! I apply it after my moisturizer. I PRESS the product into my skin paying attention to areas of concern. I wait about 60 seconds and the apply my foundation with a brush. I also will use a small amount over the top of my foundation sometimes when I want to have a more filtered look. this is by far the best blurring primer out there. I've tried several other blurring primers and this takes the cake!!
WORTH EVERY DIME

Excellent Pore Minimizer

It's an Awesome product.
Does the job
Chelsy from Ohio
It really did help blur out and cover some of my problem pore areas. Was happy with it. But for the price there isn't much in the package.
definitely one of my favorites

I actually got this from my boxycharm & when I'm out...totally getting a replacement!
Did not work for me
Shopgirl1 from Santa Clarita, CA
Despite all the good reviews this product did not work for me. It was very smooth in applying but at the same time felt greasy to me. I waited before applying makeup but after a short time my makeup looked terrible! Cover FX makes great products but this primer was not good for me and I returned it.
stella from SC
I'm not sure why there are so many bad reviews.. I hit 50 this year and had been using porefessional, purchased the blurring Cover FX as an add on with my FFF Spring box, last year.. I love this primer, works perfectly! I wonder if those with complaints of it peeling are using too much. I use mine every weekday, and still have some left. I have had no peeling, no breakouts, and while I just wear R+F skin radiance instead of a foundation, with a little powder , it is still all there at the end of the day!
