Texture:
It feels like butter. I’ve used so many pore minimizing primers but this one worked best for me. Due to it’s buttery texture it glides onvery smoothly on skin. You’ll need just a tiny bit of product and voila!! You’ll have a poreless matte canvas for your foundation.
PicsArt 09 26 01.43.58 - Smashbox Photo Finish Pore Minimizing Primer : Review This is a zoomed view of my hand. I applied the primer by tapping motion and let it sit there for two minutes,  and you can see the lines are filled😊. Same thing happened when i applied the primer on my face. In addition to the filling of lines my pores was also filled and my face became smoother.
My final thoughts:
I loved this primer. As i’ve extremely oily t-zone, my makeup never lasted for long but after applying this primer my makeup stayed for good 6-7 hours. All you need is to pat the product in your pores and you’ll see the results instantly. I’ve experienced less sebum production and it didn’t clog my pores.
Pros:
  • Sweat and humidity resistant
  • Didn’t clog my pores
  • Increased the staying power of makeup
  • Can be wore alone
  • Didn’t cause breakouts
  • Instant minimized pores

Cons:

  • Expensive

will i repurchase it:

Yes, because i’ve suffered from cystic acne and almost every pore minimizing primer clogged my pores or broke me out. This is expensive  but atleast  it works for me.
