Too Faced Primed and Poreless Skin Smoothing Face Primer Review

As I mentioned in my review of Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer, Too Faced Primed and Poreless is my HG for making skin smooth, matte and prepped for foundation.  However, this pretty pink bottle fills in my pores and blurs imperfections so well that sometimes I skip the foundation step and go straight to powder or blush!

Too Faced Primed and Poreless


Too Faced Primed and Poreless ($30) is a silicone-based primer. Silicones create a breathable barrier on your face that minimizes pores and leaves your skin looking and feeling silky-smooth.  As opposed to silicones on your hair, facial skin care products containing silicone can be washed off with a good cleanser without causing any problems with dryness.  Some people do choose to avoid silicones in skin care due to concerns about acne, but I have not had any issues with that.

Too Faced Primed and Poreless is a light beige color that blends clear. You only need to use a small amount for each section of your face because the silicone allows it to spread extremely easily.  It fills in pores, neutralizes some redness, and evens out dark patches on your skin for somewhat of an airbrushed look.

Of great importance to people with oily skin like me, Too Faced Primed and Poreless also does a great job of keeping your skin matte.  When I layer it below a matte finish foundation or powder, I don't have to worry about blotting all day.  When I layer it below a satin or dewy finish product, I still get oily after awhile, but it is reasonable and nothing compared to going without primer (I don't even bother wearing those products without Primed and Poreless - the greasiness is astounding!).

If all of that weren't enough, Primed and Poreless contains some skin-beneficial ingredients as well, such as retinol to combat wrinkles and acne, and Vitamins A & C to brighten and repair skin.

Bottom Line:  I cannot recommend this primer enough!  Primed and Poreless effectively preps the canvas for smooth and beautiful foundation application, all while keeping skin matte and nourished with healthy ingredients.
