Light and not sticky but....

It’s really easy to blend using your fingers, and it doesnt have that heavy nor sticky feeling. Though the pore-less effect seems to only work on the smaller variations of large pores, as compared to those you can easily see with a camera. To be honest, I’d rather stick with drugstore foundation instead of this given it’s price and how it didn’t really live up to my expectations.

Light but buildable

I like this formula because it really feels like nothing on the skin, while helping minimize the appearance of pores. Most people probably won't like the runny formula, but I love how easy it is to spread all over the face. The only downside is probably the sponge applicator, mine didn't last long, and I ended up just using my fingers most of the time.

Flawless-looking skin

This primer makes my makeup base looks smooth and flawless. It has a very smooth and light consistency, which I like. I use this often with the Matte Rescue Gel, since I have oily skin (on the T-zone, forehead, and chin) and my makeup will last the whole day without looking shiny and cakey. Definitely restocking!

This product really makes my skin look smooth and fair! I bought two of it! I love it and it really makes my pore minimize! I use it together with Benefit pore minimize primer to get a fantastic result. The texture is also really good and it gives me the poreless effect. Love it very much.

Amazing Product

I have really been loving this product.I feel like it's perfect for summer. It's super lightweight, evens out your skin, and is not oily at all ( I do set with powder). I have very large pores and I don't find that it really minimizes them, but it doesn't emphasize them either. Everyone is upset by the applicator, but I feel it's like the brush that comes in eyeshadow palettes... no one ever uses hem because they are junk. I've been using my Sephora total coverage sponge and haven't had any issues with it soaking up all the product. All in all I love this for a light summer foundation and I wear it to work all the time. It looks natural and never cakey. I wouldn't wear it in a night out or when I want fuller coverage, but I like lighter coverage foundations in warm weather. The shade range is a complete joke, but if you can find it in your shade, I think it's worth a shot.
