      Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional: Pore Minimizing Makeup:

      I bought this to help with large pores and redness on my cheeks. It was a disappointment. It did not seem very buildable to help with coverage. It was also very streaky. It settled in my pores and made them more visible. I used a primer (Smashbox). It is very liquidy, so be sure to only shake it with the cap on, or else it will go everywhere. Wish it had worked!

        It did kinda make your pores less noticeable but it's very powdery and kinda just clumps on your skin and looks kinda dry. I love the porefessional original though.

          Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional: Pore Minimizing Makeup:

          It's not a foundation, so it doesn't blend like one. Although, you can wear it alone all over your face and look flawless or mix it into a foundation. I've done both.

          Keeping in mind that it's not a foundation, this product is amazing and I've never seen anything like it before. I love it and am so glad to have found It.

          Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional: Pore Minimizing Makeup:

          Wanted to love this foundation and use it all summer, but it offered little to no coverage...until several hours after application when it covered my face in a layer of oily mess. I only have a slightly oily t-zone, but this was unbearable. Might work better for dry skin.
          Too bad, loved the formula and the little brush it comes with.

                Another horrible foundation from Benefit. I thought Hello Flawless sucked, but I have oily skin so I gave this horrible foundation a try. I shouldn't have, it is terrible. It is a streaky mess. Hard to blend. Dries to fast to blend. I love Benefit's blushes, hilighters & brow products... But no luck with the lack luster foundations. Never again.
