Can this be used with the Pore Filler primer? What order should they be applied in?

Asked by: dawnsharks
Hi Dawn! Both prep the complexion for your makeup. If you prime with Shine Killer, you might want to use a finishing powder to soften your look. Check out our High Definition Finishing Powder or #NoFilter Finishing Powder.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This product is NOT good if you have oily skin like me. I felt like I was literally slathering pure oil onto my face. I wish it was less greasy feeling.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This primer definitely kills shine, and for someone with oily skin this is important to me. I do think it changed how my foundation went on though due to texture. But was still overall happy, for the price I definitely say give it a try.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This primer is not only amazing! But its not even expensive! It does it job as a primer covers up pretty well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I liked this product. It has awesome coverage on your face, plus it kills the shininess on face. Only thing I would change is how it feels after it drys.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is pretty good for the price compared to Porefessional Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Face Primer it doesnt really compare, but for the price range it is really worth it.
