After hearing numerous raving reviews I decided to finally try out the Benefit POREfessional primer and I am so glad I did! It completely lives up to its expectations! You smooth this products on to you T-zone and it minimizes pores and controls shine. I like a matte complexion and I have trouble with shine and this worked perfectly. The consistency of the primer really silky and smooth and when applied to the skin it is transparent (but it comes out of the tube with a slightly peachy hue) and it instantly smooths and makes my skim feel soft and silky. While this doesn't control the oil on my face all day (I still have to touch up with power mid-day) it does a very good job and it is the best primer that I have tried that works to control shine The only downside is the high price tag of around $30 (depending on what store you go to) although If you have oily skin and want to minimize pores and have silky skin I definitely recommend indulging and purchasing this product!
