Most Helpful Positive



I love the benefit porefessional primer it's my ride or die. So I decided to try this one out as well. This one gives that glowy dewy look and also minimises my pores.

Most Helpful Criticism



the primer itself is good, very silky and brightening but the 7.5ml only lasted me a week!
  1. not the best


    i tried to like this primer but whenever i put makeup over it, it crumbles. i don't know why it does that but i used moisturiser and then the primer then makeup and it crumbles. so it is a miss for me.
  2. okay


    the primer itself is good, very silky and brightening but the 7.5ml only lasted me a week!
  3. Amazing!


    I have large and noticeable pores both on my nose and chin and they were minimized instantly. Works just like the original but adds a dewy glow. Great for travelling and this is just soo beautiful. Works really well for me!!
  4. not sure


    i couldn't really see much of difference in my pores I prefer other brands for primer :)
  5. silky smooth


    I got a 3ml sample of this as a gift with purchase and I love it. Such a great little size for travel and a really nice silky smooth primer. I'm pretty unimpressed with the primer I currently have a full size of so I have been trying to use it up while looking for the next one to upgrade to. This is a definitely contender and I LOVE that it comes in two different size options.
  6. Didn't do anything for my pores


    This primer has so much hype around it but it really didn't impress me. Adore Beauty thankfully gave me a deluxe sample for free to try so at least I didn't pay for it but it didn't cover my pores or do anything to help prep my skin for make up.
  7. nice


    I love the benefit porefessional primer it's my ride or die. So I decided to try this one out as well. This one gives that glowy dewy look and also minimises my pores.
  8. Disappointed


    verified purchaser
    I was so disappointed when I received this primer. The size of it is a joke. I think I got three days (3 makeup applications) out of it for $24. By far the worst purchase I have made in 2019. It was so Incredibly small I thought it was a mistake and must have been a free sample with my order. Wouldn’t waste my money again just buy the full size...
  9. makes makeup look flawless


    this primer is by far the best out there! is fills in all your pores and makes the makeup go on flawlessly. It makes the finished look look 100000000 times better and makes the makeup last for way longer! Definitely recommend!
  10. illumination?


    I have large and noticeable pores both on my nose and chin and they were minimized instantly. didn't notice the pearl effect
  11. Not impressed at all


    I had been wanting to try this primer as I had heard rave reviews but when I received a sample of this, I was not impressed at all. This kept on going flaky on me. I have used it few different time with different moisturizers but it just doesn't work for me.
  12. Amazing!!


    I received a sample of this with my Adore order and I was amazed at the immediate results. I have large and noticeable pores both on my nose and chin and they were minimized instantly. Works just like the original but adds a dewy glow. Love the mini size for travel.
  13. So cute


    Love taking this little cutie with me while I’m travelling. Primes skin well
  14. Wonderful primer


    Smooths out the skin, easily absorbed just like the original primer. However there's not much difference between this and the original, because once you apply foundation over, you can barely see the shimmer/radiance.
  15. Lovely primer


    This primer makes my skin look luminous and matte at the same time. It blends and absorbs easily into my skin, and you only need the tiniest bit to do your face. I like to wear this on its own with some concealer and setting powder for my no makeup natural look. My pores are diminished and my foundation stays put all day long.
  16. Benefit The POREfessional Pearl Primer Mini


    This is my favorite primer. It minimizes oil throughout the day and it gives a matte appearance before you apply your favorite foundation. It smells nice too.
  17. Decent


    Pore filling primer with a pink undertone that I think looks a little funny on my tan skin. I don't see any visible pearl effect, but this product is prone to pilling if you rub too much.
  18. Benefit Primers are amazing and this is no exception


    I usually use the normal Porefessional (blue packaging), but I like to use this pearl one during summer when I don't want to wear much makeup. This makes me feel smooth and sun-kissed when I have a tan.
  19. A nice primer that hides my pores


    I use it on trouble areas after using the hydration primer. And it works well. After applying my foundation, my pores are hidden completely.
  20. I use for eyeshadows


    I use this before using eyeshadows and highlighter. I always get that extra POP of shimmer! I love it!
  21. Pearl Primer!


    expensive for the size of the bottle! i do like benefit primers! they do last!
  22. Underwhelmed


    Nice primer sits nicely on skin but a let down with lack of lustre once foundation was on. Was hoping for more illumination
  23. Great


    Definitely smooths pores and feels luxurious on the skin! I can’t say I’ve tried a tonne of pore smoothing primers, I usually go for hydrating/ glowing ones but for my first one, I’m impressed! Recommend 100%
  24. Great primer


    Great primer, not much "pearl" i use this over hourglass primer to fill in larger pores on my nose, dont over do it as its prone to pilling or balling under foundation!
  25. great primer before applying foundation


    benefit primer is great before applying foundation! it helps keep your makeup on all day!
  26. Average primer


    I have combination skin, in terms of a primer it fils in the pore nicely and on its own, my skin radiates with shine, but I didn't find it made a difference post application of foundation an illuminating effect.
  27. Amazing


    This product works amazing. It is very smooth and blur out my pores. It also make my face looks more radiant. Definitely recommend.
  28. I loved the feel of it


    The product glided on so smoothly and sits well on the skin
  29. Disappointing


    I was quite disappointed with this as it didn't provide as much of a glow as I wanted, however it was a good primer.
  30. Beautiful


    This stuff is really pretty! Makes my skin look bright and really smooths out pores and lines. Fantastic would repurchase.
  31. Balls up


    This fills in pores nicely however doesn't have much of an illuminating effect. I also found that the product balled up when I rubbed it in, hence patting it in firmly may be better.
  32. New favourite primer


    I've really enjoyed this primer. It blurs my pores and brings out a healthy glow for my face. These minis are great when trying out new products so I'm more willing to purchase a full size because I know that i'll get my moneys worth
  33. For a gorgeous glow


    I find this primer to be very smooth & a little goes a long way.. the gorgeous glow U get from it is amazing.. I'm 44 & I guess I'm very lucky I don't have many wrinkles.. & my whole life I have never washed my face with chemical's as my eyes are so sensitive to everything.. even makeup so I don't wear any as my eyes water for 2-3 days after.. UNTIL now I have found anything benefit has just been ...

  34. Love


    I absolutely love this primer on its own! Just gives such a healthy glow to the skin! And really love it under Estée Lauder double wear as well!
  35. for a glow from within

    perfecting skin

    i got a sample size of it and used it a couple of times and it is great to use underneath your foundation because it gives a sheer glow and a smooth makeup application
  36. Perfect alone, not so great at priming


    This review only gives 1 star short of a perfect rating simply because this primer, well, it doesn't actually *prime* all that brilliantly, in my experience.

    Worn *alone* over my nose, it blends sufficiently well into my Winter-toned skin that it just makes my nose look naturally poreless, smoothly-complected and generally like I have perfect skin, there. I have a lot ...

  37. Does a good job


    I rate this product as good value for money. I don’t do heavy faces of makeup so enjoy the somewhat light feeling of this primer.
  38. Good primer


    The texture of this primer is amazing it literally feels like silk and really does shrink my pores! However the pearlescent glow really didn’t work on me at all if anything I felt it made my foundation look more matte..
    I think it would definitely be a good primer for some people but I wouldn’t buy again
  39. Pretty but not sure it primes that well!


    This gives the face a lovely sheen and does feel amazing on so its great just to use with some bb cream etc but under thick makeup it doesn't work as well as I expected in comparison to competitor brands.
  40. Small pores, healthy glow


    I prefer the original product as it’s my favourite ever primer, but this is good too. As it’s pearly I prefer it to use it only in the spots you would highlight, and my pores are larger in the places you want matte such as nose and chin. The texture is so smooth makeup glides on amazing!
  41. The original + glow


    I have used the original POREfessional for years. This is just as good as the original at smoothing out pores and priming my face for foundation application. The illuminating part of this primer is quite subtle, this gives my skin a healthy glow from within look. Very happy with this product as a primer.
  42. Clogs pores and doesn't illuminate


    Overpriced, clogged my pores and didn't illuminate my skin whatsoever.
    This is basically a slightly pink tinted version of the original Porefessional (which clogged my pores also).
    Not impressed at all. Also Benefit is no longer Cruelty Free, so disappointed in this brand.

    Far too over hyped and overpriced. There are much better quality, cruelty free and cheaper brands ou...

  43. Lit from within glow


    I’ve been using Porefessional for years now so when I saw there was a new one in a pearl shade, I knew I had to try it. It covers up my pores just like the original porefessional but it leaves my skin with a glow from within! I absolutely love it and has been my go-to since I purchased it :)
  44. 1 star less than real rating as benefit is not cruelty free :(


    I don't really believe that this primer makes your foundation look dewy after application, it's a VERY subtle pearlescent sheen that does not dilute the matte of foundation at all. It is a great primer though.

    If you want dewy foundation, use a normal primer with liquid illuminator instead. Heaps more effective
  45. Great for dry skin


    I have dry skin and sometimes have eczema patches on my face which can make my makeup go flaky. This primer disguised them completely and had my makeup looking fresh all day. Love it wish the tube was bigger.
  46. Glowing Review


    I am a huge fan of the normal porefessional so thought I'd give this one a go. It is lovely. I got so many compliments about my skin glowing... even through my makeup and this was the only different product i used. It hid the pores around my cheeks amazingly and didn't sink in. Definitely worth a try if you love the origina
  47. Good


    I love the normal porefessional primer and this one is just as good, but with an added glow! If you are going for a dewy look this is perfect for you, and you can even put it under your foundation just on the bits you put highlighter on normally for an extra highlight base. I really like this and I think it gives extra value for the money you spend on the normal porefessional.
  48. A good primer


    I purchased the sample size as I love the original POREfessional so wanted to compare... I didn't notice much difference. Which isn't a bad thing because I love the POREfessional product.

    It's great at reducing the pores and works as an amazing primer but I didn't experience much else as far as the pear effect goes.

    I would purchase again but it would only be replacing t...

  49. So good!


    I've been looking for a good primer for a while now so I purchased the mini version of this pearl primer. I have oily/combo skin. I loved it. Went on so easy and gave me a glowy finish. I'm just about to buy the full size :)
  50. Disappointing as predicted


    I really don’t know what the hype is about...FOR ME it’s a total disappointment.
    Didn’t do anything it’s meant to.
    After applying my face looked as usual, I do have good fair skin with a bit of redness in cheeks and I got this primer due to its high rating which I find surprising after using it and to give my skin a bit of a boost ...

    It made my pores more visible for the ...

  51. Great product for a healthy glow


    I was a huge fan of the Porefessional Primer, so I had to give this new one a go. It still does a great job of filling in my pores, although doesn't hold up as well on my oily skin type. This is a good alternative for someone who is looking for a primer that gives hydration and glow.
  52. New favourite


    My foundation has never set as smooth, or looked as flawless as it has since using this primer.
  53. My new favourite


    I was a lover of the porefessional however once I tried this one I can’t go back! It smooths my skin and gives a nice healthy looking glow. Keeps my foundation looking perfect all day.
  54. A good primer


    I have super oily skin, and the original Porefessional primer is one of the only primers that helps me control oil. I really dislike a matte finish, so I was super excited to try this out!

    The smell isn't as strong in this primer as it is in the original Porefessional, which is a huge win for me! It doesn't feel as heavy on my skin, either. It blurs pores exactly the same as the Pore...

  55. Love!


    This stuff is amazing! As I was applying I could literally see my pores disappearing, made my make up look flawless.
  56. Love this primer


    This is fantastic even to use when usin no make up to make your skin glow ! Received as a sample but will be going on my Wishlist !
  57. GURLL.....


    Do you remember 2011, when the attempted remake of mean girls was released? Yeah, I want to forget that too, because remakes never are as good as the original. Well, That's what I thought, and I didn't purchase this one straight away for that very reason. The POREfessional isn't broke, so why fix it? BOY was I wrong. After trialling this one originally as a sample, I went and bought the full-size ...

    Always been a lover of Pore-fessional but have been feeling a little too matte and flat! This product is honestly the bomb. Blurred pores and oil control but still a luminous glow? Fabulous.
  59. Amazing & Super stylish!


    I believe Benefit Cosmetics want to achieve a standout product range that defines perfection and delivers what it sets out to achieve. I am extremely happy with product and after years of using another 'Big Name' brand primer, I have found a new one! Thanks Benefit Cosmetics!
  60. Holy Grail Primer!


    Obsessed with benefit products and this is no different! The one problem with my skin is huge pores and this product almost completely diminishes them, i usually use the regular porefessional which i love but was starting to think my makeup looks a little flat/dull which is when i decided to try this! this product is fantastic its matiffying but also gives your skin a soft luminous glow.

  61. I’ve finally found what I’ve been searching for


    This primer is the best primer I’ve ever used! I have oily skin and large pores and this primer mattifies my skin and reduces the look of my pores. It makes my face have a subtle, pinkish, youthful glow, and often I’ll just wear the primer when I don’t feel like putting on makeup. It feels so silky smooth and makes my makeup stay put all day! I feel so confident wearing it because I’m quite consci...

  62. Crazy good


    I AM SHOOK! The original Pore fessional didn’t really speak to but when Benefit came out with this pearl primer, I needed it. I’m all about that glow from within look and that’s exactly what I was able to achieve with this primer. It leaves your skin feeling super smooth which helps your foundation glid on like magic.
    I see you Benefit!
  63. Great to use on its own!


    Makes me look so nice and dewy! I love to use this on its own as it doesn't seem to work that well as primer, not as matte as I would like. I like how smooth it applies and the luminous glow it gives - definitely an easy product for days I'm lazy to wear foundation or prefer to not. I think the original works better as a primer.
