      Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional: Matte Rescue Invisible-Finish Mattifying Gel:

      I wanted to find a new primer after Smashbox stopped doing the trick for me. I needed a primer that would keep my makeup matte, control oil, work with my combination skin, and minimize my pores (although that's been the least of my concerns compared to everything else). Unfortunately, there was nothing I liked about this primer besides the smell, but I knew that might be a problem. Instead of doing what it said, my skin felt more oily after a couple hours and at the end of the day my face just looked and felt like a mess. This really irritated my chin area and made me break out there and on the sides of my nose a little aka the two spots I really needed help with. The good thing about this product is it smells good, the gel felt cool on my skin, and it was easy to apply. Other than that, I wish I had skipped out on this product because instead of doing nothing, it made my situation worse.

      I'm sure it has worked for others and will continue, just not for me sadly!

                It was a great product but i have very oily skin so it doesn't stay on very long. It stayed put for about 4 hours before it quit. However, i noticed on other friends of mine it lasted all day.
