Still the one for me!

This has been my primer since i started using make up and i just wanna say that I'm very much thankful that they have this here aaaahhhhh!!! The feels!! My face is really oily, esp. my t zone and this primer is seriously one of a kind. It covers my pores and my make up lasts longer than usual! Oh and bye bye oily skin! :)

Helps minimize the appearance of pores!

It helps minimize the appearance of my pores without clogging them (or at least not too much)! It's very smooth to apply and matches my skin tone. It's also very light weight for me and didn't break me out. The only downsides for me are its pricey-ness and that it doesn't TOTALLY hide the appearance of pores.

There's actually a reason for the hype

Honestly, I think this is one of the best pore-minimizing primers in the market. It's lightweight and it can match any skin tone. You can even use this alone without makeup and it keeps your face looking smooth. The only reason I gave this four stars is that I really find it pricey. But if can afford this, then I would definitely recommend it!

Minimizes the appearance of my pores

This product is a gem! The texture is so light and can be easily applied to the skin. I only put this on my cheeks where I have open pores and it really minimizes the appearance of my pores. My skin feels so smooth! It's a bit expensive for me but will definitely buy this again!

This is among the holy grail products of many beauty gurus so I decided to give it a try. I was reluctant to splurge on the more expensive but bigger version of this, so I went for the mini instead. The product definitely delivers. After a long day under the sun, my foundation did not melt, and when I wiped my face, the foundation did not easily come off as well. However, this product is literally a mini. It’s smaller than the palm of my hand! But since this is an absolutely amazing primer, I might give the regular-sized one a try next time.
