    This powder accomplishes a lot in a single formula and color. It makes my skin look smooth and it blends beautifully. It also works well through the seasons which is fabulous. My only regret is that it doesn't come in a larger size.

        Wow...way to pricey for that small amount of powder. Didn't care for the way the little brush screwed into the container and the way the top opened. I liked the oil control, Benefit, but the amount given and the corky package with the high price....no no. I returned it.

            I use this as a touch up during the day. I have to use it much less than my previous product because it controls shine so much better. It also doesn't feel heavy on my face which is a big PLUS.

                  It is great when used correctly. I apply the Porefessional primer first. Then, I dab some of this where I have large pores, don't wipe it or sweep it just dab it in. With your finger, very lightly smooth it around. Then apply your foundation with a blender and done. You can add it over your foundation throughout the day as needed

                    Please advise why I never receive the samples or free gifts at Ulta without asking? Bought Benefit products and went to another Ulta for other products that they were out of and asked for samples. They stated they only give samples with purchases with products such as Benefit. I advised I just spent $75.00 on that product 15 minutes ago at another Ulta without receiving a sample/free gift. Happens all the time.... getting tired of it.

                        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:

                        Benefit does not test for or claim that their products are hypo-allergenic (least likely to cause an allergic reaction) or non-comedogenic (does not cause pimples & blackheads). If you have a specific allergy, please contact your physician to determine if a product is suitable for your skin.

                        A:

                        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.
