          What's the difference between this primer and Nars Pore & Shine Control Primer? I know this 1 has spf50, are there any other differences?

            A:

            Our Smooth and Protect primer prolongs the look of makeup while protecting skin with an SPF 50 and minimizing pores, fine lines and wrinkles. Our Pore and Shine Control Primer is designed more specifically to dramatically reduce the appearance of pores while also controlling shine and blurring imperfections. Our Pore and Shine also does not contain any SPF.

            Our Smooth & Protect will help to minimize the look of pores as well as fine lines, wrinkles, while providing great SPF coverage for the skin. Another great primer to look at is our Pore & Shine Control Primer which is designed to minimize the look of pores instantly and over time. It also controls shine and blurs imperfections.
