I have been using this product on my nose and cheeks right next to either side of my nose, where my pores are biggest. At first I didn't fully understand what it was or how it worked. I bought the Benefit Rare Beauty kit, and it came inside of it. I really bought it for the bag and the benetint, which I had been dying to try. My favorite product ended up being the porefessional. Since I started putting very small amounts on my problem areas, I've seen a big difference in my makeup overall. I would not classify this product as a primer, but corrector seems to be an appropriate fit. If you have large pores, I recommend this... But be a bit patient and keep using it if you don't notice results right at first. The price is a bit steep for me, but I will buy more once I run out (or possibly in another kit if they do that again).
I haven't used liquid foundation in two years. I had been using Bareminerals and was quite pleased, but I wanted to change to something with a bit more coverage and a product that's longer wearing. So I went to Macy's and stopped at the Clinique, Estee Lauder, and Lancome counters. I liked the other foundations, but this one was by far my favorite. The girl colormatched me perfectly, and applied to my entire face. Instantly the redness was gone, which was very high on my list of must-dos. It wasn't too heavy, but not light either. It's got very good medium coverage, which I was also looking for. After a few days of wear I was getting compliments on my skin, and my boyfriend says it looks like I have a nice glow about me... Which was awesome because he never notices when I change things up lol. I have to say this is the best high end foundation I've found so far. I went back and bought the full size bottle for around $42 after tax. To me it was a bit more than I'm used to paying, but I'm willing to pay that much if its worth the money... Which this is for me. I have normal skin, not oily or dry, and this has worked amazing! I highly recommend trying this out if you're looking for medium coverage, non cakey, and a bit of natural sheen.

I live in Arizona where its very hot and dry, and I always have dry cracked lips. I've tried a ton of different chapsticks, lip moisturizers, and tinted balks, and so far this is the only one that's really impressed me. The colors are very attractive, the crayon design is cute and different, and its very moisturizing. I had been seeing it in ads in magazines and decided to try it out... SO glad I did! I put on blistex medicated lip ointment first thing in the morning, then apply the chubby stick when my lips dry, and its really done wonders. My lips have been moist and beautiful for once, and I will never give this up! It's also a nice medium between lip balm and lipstick. I've never been able to pull off lipstick bc of my dry lips, but now I don't need to try it cuz this looks just as beautiful. I would even say glamorous... I feel good in this, and that's the point! I would recommend a million times over to anyone! Especially if you stress over dry lips... If you're like me, you'll probably feel like it's worth the price too.
