    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Agent Zero Shine:

    Love this stuff! Always gets thrown in my purse for days out or when traveling out of town. I apply it after I finish my makeup and usually don't have to reapply for the most part of the day. It's a nice way to touch up/freshen up my makeup before going somewhere new. Keeps my face looking matte and minimizes the look of my pores. I've already recommended it to a friend! After using it once she pick it up for herself LOL

        I did not think this was a product I would have to carry in my purse and touch up frequently. According to the sales rep, it wasn't, but I needed it through out the day.

                  Matte Finish

                  from Utah

                  Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Agent Zero Shine:

                  This product is fantastic for those with oily skin. I have extremely oily skin, clogged pores and I have a job that is sometimes very active. I used this to touch up my shiny areas ( nose, chin, forehead) a couple times per day, after my regular skin regimens ( lotion, spf, primer, foundation). I do recommend blotting the oily areas prior to applying this product. The only issue I have with this product is that Peta does say that they test on animals. I am still searching for a product that has the same effects this one does. Also, it comes ready to travel, perfect for your purse / makeup / travel bag.

                      I live in the south with a lot of humidity and have a very oily T-zone. This product looks great when you first put it on, but it did not prevent that oily buildup during the day. Not worth the expense.

                          Benefit does not test for or claim that their products are hypo-allergenic (least likely to cause an allergic reaction) or non-comedogenic (does not cause pimples & blackheads). If you have a specific allergy, please contact your physician to determine if a product is suitable for your skin.

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.
