I surprisingly quite like this primer, but I have only used it with the Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation so far, so I'm not sure how it would work with other foundations.

PROS
1. You can visibly see the product smoothing your skin and pores as you apply it, it also helps to reduce the appearance of redness and blemishes
2 - It helps make the Naked Skin Foundation stay put on my face all day
3 - It hasn't affected my acne prone skin

CONS
1 - I feel you need to use quite a lot of this product to cover your entire face which is annoying because you don't get a lot of product for the price
2 - It has a strange consistency, it's quite thick and more like a balm, so when you put it on your face I have to wait at least 5 minutes for it to dry and settle before applying foundation.

I feel the pros out way the cons with this primer and would definitely use it regularly if it wasn't so expensive

I am a primer addict! I have been using Benefit Porefessional Primer for over a year now but eventually i decided to step out into the world of primers and see what it had to offer me.

I bought the naked skin concealer from urban decay and got given a sample of this. I tried it and it was FANTASTIC. Right up there with the Porefessional, dare i say even better. For me and my combination skin its a tough call with primers, i need something that wont break me out, keeps me matte but not flat and prolongs the wear of my makeup.
This does everything! I only powdered once today and my makeup still looks great on my skin! This really keeps my foundation from going blotchy or clinging to my dry patches. My skin just looks smooth and quite matte still and its 7:30 in the evening!
The price is a tiny bit more than i would like but i think its worth it!
So far, LOVE THIS!

I am one of the few who actually like this. I bought it specifically for spackling my huge pores. Laura Geller's Spackle doesn't work as well as this. Benefit's Porefection doesn't even work as well as this. If there is one even better that isn't a pro product I certainly haven't found it. That and the fact that it's vegan is more than enough to make me a loyal user.

I must admit, purchasing this product was an impulse buy before going on a beach getaway. I was looking for a primer that #1 would not break me out (I'm sensitive to silicones..whyyy did I have to have oily skin?!) and #2 keep my makeup intact.
The good news is that it does not break me out but of course, with no claims of oil control or mattifying, it does very little to keep my oilies at bay. I would say after a day's wear of makeup, I may not look cakey..but I am super dewy, not in a good way.

I do prefer this primer to the green Smashbox one, as it's cheaper. I actually like this primer quite a bit, unlike a lot of the reviews here, haha.
I have combination skin so dry in some, oily in others. This does a good job of setting my makeup and my makeup does not get cakey throughout the day. Either it's the products I've been using recently, or just the primer, but my pores look nonexistent when I'm done with my makeup. I like this, but I'm still trying to find that perfect primer for me. But I bought the tube and I'm definitely gonna make use of it!

I have the old formula of this and it's white instead of peach. The old formula works better at holding my makeup, but my tzone gets oily within the same amount as if I didn't wear it. If it was the old formula, I would still buy it in a heart beat. I tried the new formula and hated it. It is not the same at all. In fact, I even got oiler with it. Why do they change formulas? Ugh. Still trying to find a good primer.

There’s not much to say about this one, but I need to write a review so I can keep tabs on the products I’ve tried.

Since I tried this alongside UD’s other primer potion, the Brightening & Tightening formula (BT), I can’t help but compare the two. I found myself grabbing for the BT version more often than the Pore Perfecting (PP) one. My dry skin preferred the moisturizing gel formula of the BT than the PP. The PP primer has a slight silicon texture to it and is a light nude-peach color. Overall, the product did not improve my skin in any way. I guess if I really had to pick one positive thing to say about it, it was mattifying (on my T-zone) and was lightweight. However, this wasn’t enough for me to keep at the cost of $31.

I absolutely swear by Urban Decay's Eyeshadow Primer Potion. It does wonders for my eye makeup, so I was excited to find out that they had the same type of product for all over the face. I really really wanted to love this product, but unfortunately it did nothing but bad things to my face :( I specifically told the girl working at the Urban Decay counter at Macy's that I have extremely oily skin. She recommended this product as it would help keep me matte throughout the day and minimize the look of my pores. This product did neither. If anything, it made me more oily.The main reason I had to return this product was that it broke me out in places where I normally wouldn't break out. One thing I can say though is that it helped apply my makeup evenly and smoothly.

I am a primer junkie. I adore UD eye primers so I gave this one a try. Did not work well for me at all. I ended up with midday shine in the t-zone with mild makeup melt down. It also caused breakouts on my cheeks.

The pros: loved the texture, good slip and applied easily to face.

Wanted to love it, just didn't pan out for summer use. If it didn't break me out I'd try it again in the winter months.
