this works so well at hiding pores! it really does make your face look practically perfect...will repurchase. very expensive for the amount given!
I like this primer a lot! It feels nice and smooth. I don't notice pore shrinking all that much, honestly, but it's a great primer and does its job well!
I love this. It's my "spackle". I'm 34 and I have fine lines and wrinkles and this smooths them as well as my pores. You could use this alone if you don't want to wear make up. Many primers I tried were in cream or gel form but this has a beautiful silky smooth powdery consistency. My make up stays fresher longer and is well worth the price. I've tried many primers in all price ranges and this is hands down my favourite brand for face. (I use Lorac primer for eyes)
I wish this had worked for me since I love TF's amazing face oil free foundation. I have acne prone oily skin that is sensitive to most things and enlarged pores. I wanted a primer that would cover my huge pores almost/or completely, this primer only blurred them a little but not enough as I would have liked. It does blur imperfections slightly and did make my skin feel really soft and it apparently has ingredients in it that are good for your skin, it did keep my makeup on all night as well, though I did have to blot a few times. So anyway I'm back on the search for my HG primer.
I've been using this primer for a couple of weeks, and I'm in love! I admit I was skeptical, especially when I read 'wear alone for the look of flawless skin' on the front of the tube. I thought there's no way anyone could wear just a primer and call themselves done. But the instant you smooth it on your face, you realize that you could indeed wear this alone! I totally would if I didn't have such terrible acne scarring and hyper-pigmentation. It spreads over your skin like silk and blurs every pore and imperfection. It makes the texture of your skin even and smooth. It's quite magical!
The results are even better with a foundation on top. It keeps my foundation looking smooth and even all day. I was previously using the L'Oreal Studio Secrets primer, and while it worked, I got shiny throughout the day, which I didn't like. Primed & Poreless does not get shiny, the finish remains satiny smooth like my foundation.
I didn't even realize I needed a primer until I saw what this one could do. The price is an ouch for me, it hurts me to pay that much. But the tube is a significant 1 oz, and since I only use about 2 pea sized amounts every day, it should last me quite some time. I've come to realize that spending that much on a face product, if it works, is completely worth it. This is a total repurchase.
At first I thought this product was going to be greasy, but it quickly turns to what feels like pure silk on my skin! LOVED it and I do think it gave the illusion of smaller pore size on my face. Some of my friends who were iffy about primers tried this (recommendation from me) and loved it as well. Staying power is good too - lasted thru a 9 hour work day and skin looked great still - foundation stayed on just fine =)
What it is - a face primer used to conceal large pores and allow make up to apply more smoothly.
- - -
Pros - primer feels silky and smooth. when this has been applied under make up, make up looks airbrushed and flawless. lives up to the hype - enlarged pores are visibly smaller if not completely unnoticeable. cute soft pink packaging. A tiny bit goes a long way.
- - -
Cons - the packaging does not allow you to get the last bit out. Products gets stuck around the nozzle part or inside of the packaging making it impossible to get out without cutting up the packaging. And generally there is a good bit of product left in the container. Also - the price. 30.00

Side note - still my favorite primer. Smooth application and airbrushed finish. Does not feel greasy like other primers. I have enlarged pores on my nose and this visibly reduces them. Also, unlike the Urban Decay primer for pore reduction this primer does not leave a white 'mask'. It has a vanilla hue when squeezed out but applies clear to skin. Great product and worth owning.
Really like this stuff. I have huge pores and its one of my biggest skin care concerns. I'm always on the lookout for something to help with my pores. I've tried quiet a few primers in the past year or so. I got a sample of this from Sephora along with a few other primer samples including Benefits Porefessional. I didn't think I would like this over the Dr. Brandt Pore No More Refiner but I was wrong. This primer does a better job at hiding my pores and giving a smooth finish. The pore no more seem to roll-up into crumbs. I've tried a lot of primers for my pores and feel that this one is the right one to settle for. Would recommend giving this a try.
So far, this is my favorite primer. I love the consistency and the results. I can used this primer with any foundation and make it look good...cream, liquid, or powder. This is important to me because I like to switch between all three. Great product. No cons to this one.
My usual face primer is the Monistat Soothing Care Chafing Relief Powder-Gel. (Don't laugh until you read the reviews on it! It's great!). I got a sample of Primed & Poreless (with SPF 20 and Bronze color) from Sephora a few months ago and decided to give it a try today. The bronze color looked dark when I squeezed it out of the tube, but it blended in perfectly with my tan skin. It made my pores visibly smaller, but didn't completely make them disappear. I put on my makeup as I normally would. A few hours later, my skin was looking dewy and flawless! I will repurchase this when I run out. But since it is a bit pricey, I will still use Monistat for "normal" days and Too Faced for when I want to look extra special.
