    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Agent Zero Shine:

    okay, people who say this is messy are not using the porduct correcty. first, the product is meant to be poured into a container, like the cap that comes with it. then you swirl your brush into the container, coating the brush evenly as you swirl. then you swipe it on your face. the brush that comes with it sucks, invest in a good stippling brush. this product looks the best when you stipple it on rather than brushing it. it's a great product, that I can vouch for. How you apply it, though, is very important.

        I have acne prone skin with large porse in my nose and cheek areas. This product does help with the oily and looking shinny. But it does not minimize thr appearance of my pores. But I like this product especially during summer time when my face looks oily. It does help alot

        Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Agent Zero Shine:

        I really enjoyed this product. It definitely did what it said it would do. My shine was gone instantly! The only issue I have with it is that small sparkles it left all over my skin. That might have looked better on someone with darker skin but for me, a fair skinned girl, it just didn't work. Other than that, the shine control was perfect!

          Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Agent Zero Shine:

          I love this product. It provides sheer coverage that prevents shine all day. I use it to set my make up and love that it isn't heavy and doesn't settle into lines and wrinkles. If it provided a bit more coverage I would wear it as foundation because it is the perfect color for my fair skin.

          This enables me to skip the mattifying gel that I would normally use on top of my make up to reduce shine. For days that I don't want to wear make up, this is the perfect amount of coverage (along with a little blush stick (Benefit Fine One One) to look natural but evens out my skin tone just enough.

          I recommend this to everyone and included the product in a bag of makeup (age appropriate, of course) when my niece turned 13 this summer.

            I purchased this product in hopes it would control the shine in my T-Zone and it does but only for a short time.
            I will also matte my lipsticks. I'm now experimenting with how to apply this over eyeshadow-
            The product was suggested to me by a friendly employee.

                My face is super oily and after about less than 2 hours my face is so shiny! I use nyx shine free and maybelliene baby skin to control shine that doesn't even work very well. Right now I use the maybelliene fit me concealor all over, would this product control shine all day or what is one that would?

                  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.
