Sample Review: Benefit The Porefessional

Sephora describes Benefit The Porefessional ($30, 0.75 oz) as "a professional balm that minimizes the appearance of pores".  This is a pretty vague description but I can tell you this much - it doesn't minimize the appearance of pores.

A decent sized sample, I was able to use this for the past week or so so I can give a good assessment, having used it in different situations and even just using it on its own one day.

It feels like a regular primer to me with a slight nude-colored tint that seems to serve little to no purpose.  It does work fine as a primer - it kept me looking matte and helped my makeup stay throughout the workday without needing touchups for after work dinner - but it doesn't minimize pores, or it doesn't minimize my pores anyway.  For the money, there are better primers out there.

Finally, I've met a makeup product I didn't like!  I will not be considering buying the big version of this.
