      Love this product. I have an oily face and am always buying lots of products to help with the oilyness on my face but after I bought this product all I need is a little makeup and apply porefessional agent and ready to go all day. No need to reapply.

            My pores have always shown even with primer on my face until a makeup artist showed me this product. It works amazing. I have switched my primer to either the Estee Lauder or the Smashbox clear. I apply my foundation, bake under my eyes, contour and then I add this on all over but mainly my pore area you see. This makes my pores look like they don't even exist. I love this product. Comes with its own brush in the bottom of the bottle. You don't even have use a lot of this to get a good matte appearance. Little goes a long way. =]

              I was looking for a good setting powder that covers pores, sets my concealer along with the rest of my face, and gives an airbrushed, never cakey or powdery finish and this has full filled all of my requirements FLAWLESSLY. I say this as someone who HATES powders because they always dry me out and make me look older, and I'm only 24. But this is the one! One of the reps recommended it, said she swears by it, and when I looked at her I immediately said "you don't look like you have pore problems," and she handed me the bottle. I no longer look like I have pore problems either!! I don't always use the brush that comes with it, but either way my entire face looks flawless, and I have combination, sensitive, acne prone skin that never looks perfect no matter what I use, so that's saying something.

                  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.

                          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:

                          We recommend applying Agent Zero Shine over your makeup for best results. You can also retouch your makeup throughout the day with it to keep skin shine-free!

                        My face is super oily and after about less than 2 hours my face is so shiny! I use nyx shine free and maybelliene baby skin to control shine that doesn't even work very well. Right now I use the maybelliene fit me concealor all over, would this product control shine all day or what is one that would?

                          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.
