Ever since I was introduced to the blogging world, I've heard nothing but good things about Benefit's the Porefessional primer. The price tag always was the reason for why I never tried it, and since I have never used a primer, I didn't want to go all out on something I had never tried.
But a few weeks ago, when I did some online shopping at Ulta, I choose to have some makeup samples sent along with my purchase. To my surprise, the porefessional was one of them! I was so excited to try it that I used it the next time I wore makeup.
The sample's packaging was so cute, I was in love with the product already. From what I've seen, Benefit always has cute packaging, so it's always nice to just look at.
The sample lasted me about 3 uses. I applied barely a pea-sized amount, and focused the primer on my nose and outward, like the sample suggested. I wasn't so focused on the lasting power because makeup tends to last well enough for me not to care to reapply. What drew me in (and made me obsessed) was that it certainly did make my pores look smaller. My pores are pretty big, so when I could barely see them once this product was on, I was amazed! I had always heard that it made the pores smaller, but I just thought "oh they're just saying that", but it's true!
Next time I see this product (or see a sale on it), I am definitely going to get my hands on it. It's that good.
