I'm a huge fan of primers, and in recent years, the offerings have just gotten better and better.
If you have oily/combination skin or skin with larger pores around the nose, Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Translucent is a wonderful primer.
The texture is light and smooth and the feel on my skin was weightless. It absorbed very quickly and gave me a fantastic smoothing effect. It not only covers larger pores and blackheads, but it's also very good for oil control throughout the day. This is the perfect first step before foundation/tinted primer, and it's also very concentrated, so it's definitely a great buy as well. - RLB
