This product was okay. It did what it claims to: "Quickly minimize the appearance of pores & fine lines for smoother-than-smooth skin! " but wasn't amazing in any way.
For reference I have light normal / dry skin with large pores around my nose.
Cute packaging
Didn't break me out (few things do)
Did minimize pores

The price...Normally I have no problem dishing out the cash for high end products. I love Benefit and think almost all of their products are great. But 30 USD is expensive for a primer that isn't THAT good especially when it's only .75 oz, rather than the standard 1 oz. Think about how many tacos you could buy for thirty bucks.
It doesn't make my makeup stay on any longer than any of my drugstore primers do.
It's easily dupe-able. Nyx's pore filler has the same effect for me and costs like twenty bucks less. Hard Candy's Sheer Envy is another possible dupe as well.
It's colored...why? It goes on clear, but it's an ugly tan color in the packaging.
It smells...strange? Not bad, just different I guess.
If you're looking for a good high end primer I'd try Tarte's Clean Slate Primer..It's the same price, but comes with .25 oz more product, and works ten times better.
