This is the Etude House Goodbye Pore Ever Pore Primer Essence. I purchased it for $1 through EBay with free shipping which is a great deal. It’s regularly priced on Amazon around $11. I’ve been wanting to try out this Korean brand to see how it compares to its American counterpart, Benefit Porefessional.
The packaging is very cute. Its bright colors and girly polka-dots make it a stand out in the makeup drawer. The tube holds 0.75 oz or 20 ml of product, which is comparable to Benefit Porefessional. Benefit charges $31 for their product.
The product is unscented, creamy, and a matte formula that is a bit on the liquidy side. If the cap is left unopened product will eventually dribble out. It’s an opaque cream color that goes colorless on the skin.
This is the pores on my hand close up. I’ve got zero product on them. Let’s see how the Etude House Goodbye Pore Ever Primer covers these simple lines and pores.
I used flash photography in all 3 photos. Comparing the first pic to the last pic, I do notice a slight airbrushed effect and more even skin tone. I don’t think this covered up pored dramatically, but the primer did give a veil over the skin like brands such as Hourglass or other high-end brands.
If you have enlarged pores this will not fill them in for you like Clinique Pore Minimizer will. So far, that is the best product on the market for that. The Etude House Goodbye Pore Ever will keep foundation on longer by providing a barrier between the skin and foundation. It also (as I stated earlier) gives an airbrush, matte finish that looks great under flash photography.
Compared to Benefit Porefessional, this is very similar, if not an exact dupe. The consistency is spot-on and I found the same effect in photography. Is this the best primer? No, I prefer Clinique Pore Minimizer, Laura Mercier foundation primer, and other brands to this. If you’re on a budget and looking for something for flawless pictures, this is your girl.

2. We got the idea from a Martha Stewart magazine in Walmart.
