Q & As

Rated 3 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Did nothing for me I'm a big fan of Nars so I was very excited to try this product. Unfortunately it had no visible effect on my oversized pores, and did nothing to mattify my skin either - even before I put my foundation on. In fact I had to blot much earlier than I do normally. Very disappointed! 21 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Does exactly what it says on the tin makes my skin look pore-less as well as making my foundation glide on like a dream. Unlike most primers, this doesn't have that greasy silicone texture, instead it feels more like a light-weight moisturizer that makes my make-up last all day. 03 March 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not as good as I hoped I bought this product after someone recommending Nars primers. It was between this and the benefit pore primer, and I wish I had choose the other : ( this primer really doesn't make any difference to my skin, my pores are still noticeable, and when applied it's very wet, where as the benefit primer is so soft and makes your skin smooth and is much nicer to apply and put your make up on after. 12 January 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice Product Lovely feel to this primer and does hold make-up but not convinced it is the best primer that I've used or that it makes any difference to pores - I think next time I would buy the UV 30 primer 25 July 2012
