  • "i got a deluxe sample of this primer as a 100 point perk in sephora. i swipe this across my t-zone and press it in with my fingers. it is a bit hard to get into the corner of your nose. this primer does minimize the look of look of pores. however, i find that even though it contains oil-absorbing powders, it does not do as good of a job at keeping my oils at bay; i still have to use a mattifying powder over it. you do have to be careful, though, about the amount of product you put on. i find that if i layer too much of this primer on, it balls up as i put on my foundation. " in 243 reviews

I have large pores on my cheeks and around my nose, I've tried multiple products and skin care to minimize them, some have worked ok but none of them have ever really lasted throughout the day because I can get pretty oily and end up blotting the product away.

The Vanishing Stick has worked miracles though! I just rub it onto my problem areas and let the product sit for a moment before applying my foundation. Ease of use should get 5 stars alone, I love that it's a stick! Although I do hope the make a skinny one that would work around the nose area better!)
My pores really do seem to vanish, and it lasts all night, even in the hot and super humid summer we've had - I still get a little oily/sweaty of course but not nearly as much and the product doesn't get blotted away!

Since it is a stick I always use a tissue to sort of clean the product after I use it. This is my new HG for fighting those large pores!

I got this as a sample at Sephora, I did not find it helpful. It was good as a primer but it made my skin look much more oily after 15 minutes. I have oily skin, this product is recommended for oily skin but for me it made my skin much more oily looking, def wouldn't recommend.

I received this item as a sample through Sephora. It was a great size to truly use plenty of times to decide if this was right for me. I truly appreciate a company that does this as it helps the consumer enough product to adequately evaluate their effectiveness. I love the packaging it allows for great portability and ease of use. For the product it self it has worked for me in particular for reducing the appearance of my pores around my cheek area. I have not as of yet had any issues with breaking out which products of this nature tend to cause for me, definitely a major plus. It feels so nice and smooth as it goes on leaves a smooth powdery finish. As for scent there is not anything that would bother those a that are sensitive to scents. Definitely recommend, although added note is to not over apply as it tends to look cakey at least on me and makeup doesn't stay as long. The less I do apply the better my final result.

This is amazing! I've only had a small sample but it lasted weeks because I only put it on pores in trine. It really is magical. I should have put his on my top 5 for 2917 list!

This pore vanishing stick does exactly what it says, I used it for a few months. But then I slowly realized that it was piling when applied with my other mattifying primer. So I decided I did not like it. My favorite blurring primer is smash box pore minimizing primer.

Great for hiding pores but I noticed that in the area near my nose that it doesn't really do anything and makes the finish of  my foundation weird after I set and finish my makeup. Not really crazy about it but then again it could be my oily skin type and my pores.

I received this product in the Estée Edit voxbox.

This is one of the best vanishing pore sticks that I've tried. Seriously.

I use this as a primer. It can be used under or on top of your makeup. So it's a multiuse product which is super cool. It's really easy to use, very light. It makes your skin super soft creating a thin mask over your skin so the makeup can spread evenly. You can re-apply again, very easy, fast and useful. Perfect for retouch your makeup.

I really like this stick, the oily feeling is totally gone with this baby! You can see the difference when you use it. 💯
I'd love a spot in the second round of The Estée Edit voxbox!

It seems like an affordable price for women that are in the business field to buy and it's usually I would buy the texture look smooth and creamy and not so greasy doesn't make it as visible

I got this in a deluxe mini size initially using Sephora points. When I first opened it and swiped it on my hand, I thought it might be too slick to use in my t-zone area which is where I needed it the most. I used it in place of my primer because I didn't want a million layers of stuff on my face. The first two times I used it, when I applied my foundation, I got some pilling but that was because I was using too much of the pore vanishing stick. Way too much! I have found that on my combination skin, a little goes a long way and no longer get any pilling. Using this has really helped my pores not look so hideously noticeable. And it does not make my t-zone look like an oil slick despite my initial assumption. I know many people may not like using stick form skincare/cosmetics but I like the convenience of it. This was my first Estée Lauder product purchase when I ran out of my sample.
