Hi loves! I have oily skin and large pores, so I'm always looking for a good primer to help with the oiliness and pores. I have been testing out Nars Pore & Shine Control Primer (30ml, 34 EUR).
The primer comes in a white squeeze tube packaging. The style of it is simple and looks more like a skincare product.
The formula is mattifying, pore minimizing, oil free and makes the makeup last longer. It contains african whitewood and oleanolic acid combine with peptides to help balance to skin.
The formula of the primer is light weight and has a herbal scent to it. I apply it before doing my makeup and it does mattify the skin. Also noticed my pores are not as visible, but I have primers, which do better job with it (like the one from NYX, Pore Filler). Down below you can see the before and after picture.
The primer did help with the oiliness a little, but I do mean a little. I still got oily through out the day, just not as much. I didn't see difference with my makeup wear time though (I already use long lasting foundation).
I don't think I'll buy it again. There are so many better primer available, like NYX Pore Filler and I also like one from Dior (can remember the name at the moment). I think the Nars primer would work better for someone who has not as oily skin type, like I have. I'll wait when the weather get cold and try it again.

Which is your favorite primer?
