Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Agent Zero Shine:

It did exactly what I bought it for, to add a beautiful, porcelain finish to my makeup and make it last all day. My makeup would thin out and wear off by the afternoon and this helps it last longer and not do that. It's light and velvety.

      I love this product; it does work extremely well in not only setting but eliminating shine. The only thing that j would change is the packaging the brush it comes with is a dinky but just personal preference. The product it self is wonderful

                  What is the difference between the Porefessional Agent Zero Shine and the regular Porefessional?

                    A:

                    The POREfessional Agent Zero Shine's primary purpose is a mattifying and pore minimizing sheer powder for all over application, while The POREfessional (Item #: 2219868) serves primarily as a pore minimizing treatment balm to apply and blend wherever enlarged pores are apparent. They work great together for a flawless, poreless effect. We recommend testing both products at your nearest ULTA store:

                    A:

                    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.

                    From Benefit Cosmetics:

                    "We do not test our products on animals nor do we permit others to do so except where it is required by law.

                    "We are deeply committed to the elimination of animal testing and we are playing a leading role in developing alternative methods through our support of the “Fund for Alternatives to Animal Testing” in the United States and the Opal Program in France. Additionally, we are one of only a few companies to have invested in creating our own internal department to test raw materials and ingredients to further ensure the quality of our products and the satisfaction of our customers, which is our foremost priority.

                    "We are hopeful that alternative testing methods will be adopted worldwide and we will see an end to animal testing."

                    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.
