    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Agent Zero Shine:

    I love this product. My t-zone is extremely oily. I only use it in that area. I use my regular powder everywhere else. Many complain about the bottle being smaller than advertised, because of the brush, but you still get a lot of product. A little really does go a long way. Also, you may need to reapply at some point throughout the day. The product isn't a miracle worker, but it does work...

      Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Agent Zero Shine:

      I have VERY OILY face! For over a year ive been looking for something to help control the shine. I've tried EVERYTHING you can buy out there! I work in a hosital so I dont have time to be touching up my face. I go to work with a "matte" face and come home with an OILY FACE! Its disgussting! I came across this when I was shopping and decided to give it a try. I applied very little, went to work, and after my shift was over went home, looked in the mirror, and no SHINE AT ALL! It looked exactly the same as it did when I left the house in the morning! I highly reccomend this to anyone that struggles with oily face! A little does go a long way with this product! will definetly continue to purchase!

        Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Agent Zero Shine:

        From the Below reviews I have gained an understanding that not many people know what translucent powder is all about, yes it comes in a light beige color but, it doesn't apply to the skin that color. When applied, its blends into your skin tone instantly, it is more for setting the T-zone of the face. Not for all over else you would run out quickly, the concept of the powder is to toss it into your purse and use it for touching up on the go!!! it also does an AMAZING job covering/blurring pores. A MUST HAVE NECESSITY FOR EVERY PURSE!!

        i don't think this product is worth the hype. i tried a sample i got from ulta aaand... i really didn't see anything special. it does minimize the appearance of pores but i didn't use it with primer on for the sake of testing the product on its own. i had to blot and powder again just a couple of hours later, any of my drugstore powders work the same or better than this one. not bad, but definitely overpriced

        LOVE IT!!

        By Lauren

        from San dimas, CA

        Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Agent Zero Shine:

        I absolutely LOVE this product. I get super shiny on my T-zone especially my nose and I put this on after I finish my whole face of makeup then apply this on my T-Zone. It works soo well I barely have to touch up my makeup throughout the day. The packaging is soo cute and I love the fact how it comes with a brush at the bottom. I think a little bit of this powder goes a long long way. I bought this about a month ago and I use it everyday and it's still pretty full. I would most definitely buy this product again as soon as I run out.

        Best Uses

          Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Agent Zero Shine:

          I bought this at the urging of a sales associate when the store was out of the brand I prefer. I have fairly dry skin, and wanted a translucent powder with absolutely no shimmer in it. This is not it. The sales associate insisted that it wouldn't settle in my fine lines as long as I "buffed it in really well", but the brush it far too small to do that and started to shed hairs after just a few days. The product needs to be reapplied frequently, and is not in any way, shape or form matte. Rather, it has quite a bit of shimmer in it.

                Portable and easy to toss is your purse. Comes in one shade of beige. For a micropowder it is adequate and feels silky on the skin. I question the actual amount of product in the container due to the brush being stored in the bottom of it. Blurs imperfections temporarily but must be reapplied throughout the day.

                Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Agent Zero Shine:

                I bought this product expecting wonders from it since benefit is such a great brand and the pore professional is great, sadly I did not get what was expected. The product says you can use it on a bare face or after makeup as a powder to control shine and touch up. I applied this on my bare face expecting a great matte finish lasting atleast an hour or two. This did not mattify my face it feels like I just sweeped a little bit of pointless powder over my face. The main thing I was really dissapointed with was that it was shimmery, when applied i sweeped my finger over my forehead and got a shimmery residue on it mixed with the oil from my face. Maybe they were trying to combat shine with shine unfortunatley it didnt work for me. I see this product having alot of potentiol if only they take out the shimmer and make it more mattifying and long lasting.

                  Bought this yesterday and used it for New Years Eve, I was in a very hot room and my face was shine free all night. (I applied makeup around 6pm and had it washed off by 1am) Well worth the money. (:

                      This comes in a beige color. It is a nice micropowder that goes on easily to diffuse pores and feels silky. I question the actual amount of powder that it distributes into the cap. I feel like I have to refill the cap three or more times to cover the face. I also wonder how much actual product is in the container since the brush is stored inside the container.

                        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.
