      Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Agent Zero Shine:

      Not a fan of this product. For the price, I expected it to be much more than what it is. I have fair skin, often oily, but with dry patches on the corners of my nose, eyes, mouth etc. Unfortunately, this product does not at all cover my pores. Furthermore, it clumbs and cakes at the dry spots making them appear all the worse. The bottle, while aesthetically pleasing to the eye, is not practical nor clean for application. The powder gets everywhere and doesn't stick to the brush. Rather, falls helplessly all over you work clothes. Grrr. Not impressed with this one.

                        A:

                        The POREfessional Agent Zero Shine's primary purpose is a mattifying and pore minimizing sheer powder for all over application, while The POREfessional (Item #: 2219868) serves primarily as a pore minimizing treatment balm to apply and blend wherever enlarged pores are apparent. They work great together for a flawless, poreless effect. We recommend testing both products at your nearest ULTA store:

                        This product instantly minimizes shine and helps smooth the look of pores. For best results, first apply Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Pro Balm primer (Item #: 2219868) to the T-zone, then sweep on Agent Zero Shine for a flawless, mattified complexion. This product's built-in brush dispenser makes touch-ups a breeze if shine returns.
