CLAIM TO FAME: The newest Benefit brightening primer that instantly minimizes the look of pores

FAST FACTS: Locks on makeup with a soft matte finish; helps skin look bright, boosted, and awake; has an oil-free, lightweight, and silky-smooth texture, just like the original The POREfessional: Pore Primer; has a soft pearly pink tinge; 90% said complexion looked brighter, 91% said it minimized the look of pores, 96% said it created soft-matte radiance after 1 week

PERFECT FOR: Matte but glowingly radiant skin

WHAT YOU GET: (1) The Porefessional: Pearl Primer

Target pores and dullness by smoothing this primer all over your face with fingertips. Wear it alone or under makeup to lock your lit-from-within look. If pores or dullness dare to reappear during the day, pat the lightweight formula delicately over makeup.


Founded by successful models-turned-makeup artists Jean and Jane Ford, Benefit was built on the premise that “makeup doesn’t have to be serious to look good.” For the twin Fords, laughter was always the best cosmetic, a belief they infused into each of their products from the get-go. Just check out the quirky packaging and cheeky labels that accompany Benefit’s beauty boosters and you’ll get the drift! Today, the mega-brand is known for its insta-pretty solutions and ever-playful approach to beauty.

Glitter up!

I love how it prepares my skin before I put on foundation but I also like patting a little amount after. At first, I didn’t believe that it will give me an extra glow but man, it has that glittering shimmery effect. I like how it smells and I love how my primer is pink ☺️

can be used on its own ♥️

it literally brightens my complexion and a little goes a long waaaay 😍 I normally concentrate on the T-zone area cause that is where I tend to get really oily and it works really well. if you’re aiming for that no-foundation lewk / au-naturel this is definitely a must have. but for days you need more coverage, it does work well under foundation and that “lit from within” is still evident. worth the splurge 🤗

no more pores!

I got a free sample of this product last week and when I tried it... all my pores magically vanished!! I swear this is the best primer I've tried and a small dot goes a long way. I'm also very oily and the primer survived the whole day. Also, it leaves a glowy effect on the face.

Gives subtle radiance and shimmer

Benefit products are pricey but for those who have the means to splurge, include this product in your beauty arsenal. I am a benefit gal as I go to their brow bar for my eyebrows, I have the cha cha balm and lolli balm, I use the porefessional in both variants. I like this pearl variant than the regular one as the it gives a subtle shimmer and radiance that is nice even for daytime use. As with the green variant, both porefessional work well with very oily faces as the mattifying effect is lasting and do not cake other products worn in the face. I will definitely buy again though one tube lasts for months.

skin-smoothing collection..

This skin-smoothing collection is commonly held as the makeup saviour for oily skin. The new POREfessional Pearl primer has a thick creamy consistency and feels a bit greasy, but doesn't make the skin look oily. It has a very light fruity floral scent. The product is light pink with tiny shimmers~~~ with added glow factor! SO, you'll love it!

Just buy it!

What I love with this product is that aside from taking care of funda or bb cream, it also makes my skin glow! Benefit primer is pricey, but it was totally worth it! I love how it make my skin glow without too much make up! I am oily so my pores are big, but this can take care of it! So great!!
