Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional: License to Blot:

I use it before applying my foundation and it keeps my t zone from getting as oily, but I still have to dab over my makeup throughout the day to keep the shine away.

              Loved it! No shiny nose for this gal anymore. Bought this because my makeup disappeared around my nose,forehead and chin after only a couple hours of makeup. This totally helped and my makeup stayed put.

                • Q:

                  My eye lids are oily and makes my eye shadow crease after an hour. Which is really frustrating. Would this help with the oil control on my lids?

                    A:

                    Hi gorgeous! The POREfessional: license to blot is an instant oil-blotting stick that mattifies shine for up to 6 hours after application. We recommend blending the POREfessional primer all over the face to minimize the appearance of pores and then targeting oily spots with license to blot! I also recommend our Stay Don't Stray, it is an eyelid primer that make concealers AND eye-shadows STAY PUT.
