I sort of recently bought the Maybelline Face Studio Prime Pore Minimizing Primer in order to compare it to the Benefit Porefessional primer, and here are my thoughts.
The two products have a very similar texture and feel to them and a similar nude colour too, which turns sheer when you apply the products to your skin. The Benefit primer sinks into the skin a bit faster than the Maybelline primer, but they look very similar on the skin. The day I compared the two primers I wore each primer on one half of my face. I wore my make-up for about 9 hours, and I didn’t see any noticable differences between the left and right side of my face. My make-up looked equally good on both sides of my face, and in conclusion I would say that the Maybelline Face Studio Prime Pore Minimizing Primer is a great affordable alternative to Benefit Porefessional.
