This primer has really pretty good oil control. It is one of my go to primers because it really does give you a mattified base and most of my foundations are compatible with this. I am just nor sure about the pore minimizing effect because I don't feel like this blurs out mine.

I bought this as a dupe for the banila co primer and I like it better than banila. This one has a smooth texture and almost velvet like. It doesn’t feel like there’s anything on my face which I like, and when I come home after a long day at school, my base is still intact. So I would overall say it definitely does it’s job without hurting your bank account.

Good for Powder Foundation

I have been using this product for a couple of weeks already and so far this is what I can say. One,it does not minimize the appearance of pores or fine lines. I have some giant pores on my cheeks and my nose and it completely did nothing. Second it does not work well with liquid foundation (specifically my Loreal True Match funda) because after layering my liquid funda on this I could see weird lumps on areas where I have giant pores and the liquid funda doesn't stick to it. HOWEVER when I did use my MAC Studio fix powder plus foundation I did see it finally working especially if you really buff the powder on your the primer it will really look like second skin liquid foundation.

Smoothens texture but doesn't make my face stay matte

It blurs my texture but i haven't noticed a big difference on the mattifying effect this is supposed to give. If i don't use a matte foundation, this doesn't keep off the shine in areas like my nose and forehead. I'm going to use this until i finish it but i won't be repurchasing this since i need a true matte primer for school. I've watched some videos on youtube saying this doesn't do much but i wanted to give it a try. Since i don't have oily skin, the primer worked well enough as a base for my makeup. I prefer a really matte look though.. and this didn't give me that.

- Didn't come with a box - Smells like a normal primer - Blurred my skin a little bit - Didn't really fill my pores in that much - Didn't feel tacky enough for the foundation to "stick" to my face - I used a bb cream with this and it did well - I used a foundation with this and it broke apart and got oily after just 5-6 hours - Its okay

Almost Pore-fect

This was the second Milani primer I've tried. The first one I tried was the hydrating primer that I fell in love with so I wanted to try out this one to see how it would compare. It was okay. It was a clear gel liquid that didn't have much of a scent and it reminded me of the Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Eraser. It did a pretty good job keeping my foundation on for the day and I didn't hate it. I didn't like it as much as the hydrating primer (which left me a glowing goddess) but the matte primer did its job even if the finish wasn't as good as I expected. It might not buy this again though but it's a pretty good primer for its price.
