Pore filling/reduction runs my morning. I spend so much time trying to fill these Lincoln Tunnel pores of mine. I use primers over primers , powders and still I see more spots than smoothness. And thru the day, same. Makeup breaks down, pores visible. Maybe I shouldn't be, but I am self conscious about them.
I think I have finally found a primer that truly works -Touch In Sol No Poreblem .
No Poreblem is a lightweight , fairly thin pink tinted gel/cream that smoothes and fills really well. I spend extra time smoothing to really get into the pores and then allow it briefly to set. On goes my foundation ( matte for Summer) and a dusting of powder if I feel I need it. It doesn't feel tacky or sticky on, there's no heavy silicone feel and you only need a small amount each use.
I use a magnifying mirror to check all this ( aren't they just the greatest and scary all at once ?) and at last I see far less noticeable pores . I have also noticed that midday to even end of day a quick powder touch up is all that's needed and there's very little to no wear off/separation or caking up at the nose and chin like I usually have. In fact my nose looks better later in the day than I when I first apply. Everything has had a chance to mesh and set.
It seems to help with oil control as well. I still get shiny but not as shiny .
