Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Eraser, P299 Haruhi, 18: “This product is always sold-out for a reason. First, it’s one of the cheapest primers out there. Second, it actually does a great job in minimizing the appearance of pores. I don’t really have huge pores but my friends and I still found a difference when I started using it.”

Benefit The Porefessional Face Primer, P2,120 Kim, 19: “On my 2nd or 3rd tube of this cult fave already and no other product comes close to how this works!

Milani Prime Shield Mattifying + Pore-Minimizing Face Primer, P550 Jenna, 22: “I got this because I heard a friend of mine rave about this.

Sooper Beaute Express Beauty Blur Cream Primer Foundation 10g, P180 Eka, 25: “I bought this product a month ago and have been using this every time I want to have the “no make-up” look. I dab pea sizes only on my face but it can definitely stand on its own and doubles as a foundation for those of you who don’t like products on their faces like me. This primer is so light, it’s like you’re not wearing anything on your face!”

The Ordinary High-Adherence Silicone Primer, P540 Kristine, age unknown: “As soon as the product is applied, i felt what prepped skin should feel, smooth yet unclogged.

The Ordinary Serum Foundation, P770 Judy, 27: “My skin has never looked this good. It won’t give you full coverage, that’s for sure but there’s something about this product that gives your skin life.
