    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional: Pore Minimizing Makeup:

    I use this with an IT brush (the airbrush foundation brush) all I do is squeeze a few drops on to the brush and then just work it on to my face. I never used the little sponge that's connected to the bottle I mean come on you can obviously tell that's not going to do much or anything so I obviously knew I had to use a brush and trust me it works best if u squeeze few drops on to a brush

      Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional: Pore Minimizing Makeup:

      I use the POREfessional: Pore Minimizing Makeup as a daily foundation and I really love it. It is easy to apply and it is light-weight (it feels like my skin, not something caked on). This type of foundation isn't for everyone because its not a typical liquid foundation, but it has won me over and I love it.

          Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional: Pore Minimizing Makeup:

          Ulta employee convinced me I would love it and I thought I liked it from swatching it but after using it once I realized I hate it. The applicator it works with works well but it's too small to do anything with, and anything else you use to apply it absorbs too much product. The bottle says use a few drops but I needed to like squirt it down my face to get it to cover everywhere and for it to stay wet enough to blend out because it dries way too quick and too matte.

          Really nice product, I found it difficult to apply at first because it is really watery. I am used to thicker formulas. I have dry/oily skin and this works really well. It is pricier than what I am used to though.

                    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional: Pore Minimizing Makeup:

                    This is a nice foundation for anyone looking for light to medium coverage (it's build-able) with a matte finish. I have sensitive combination skin, and this formula is a good fit. While it does sometimes get a bit smudgy by the end of a long day when my skin got particularly oily, it is generally stays on nicely (even through summer days). I've always been someone who applied foundation with clean fingers, but that doesn't work for this product. However, it comes with a sponge applicator built in which I like a lot and doesn't leave lines like some brushes do. All in all a nice foundation at a reasonable price for a prestige brand.

                      Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional: Pore Minimizing Makeup:

                      Tried the lightest (#1) on the back on my wrist and it went on so smoothly and blended well with barely any effort, and what I tried it on my face it worked exactly the same. I could absolutely tell a difference -- my pores aren't tiny or extremely large, but they're getting more noticeable and this shrank them away into nothingness. I use this after my primer (I love the BECCA first light primer) and before foundation, and I just need a tiny bit of foundation to cover up any blemishes/red spots.

                      Would definitely recommend this! Especially if the only problem zone on your face is pores, you wouldn't need any other coverage. I only use a few drops, so the bottle will last a very long time.
