Pros

Cons

  • Brush is too big for container.

Best Uses

    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Agent Zero Shine:

    The container doesn't hold much powder and the brush is hard to get back in the tube. But I'd still buy it again because the powder dramatically reduces the shine on my nose and forehead. No other products have performed as well and I've tried several.

        Does what it says it does. I like to sweep a light layer allover my face as the last step of my makeup routine. The product gives a soft matte finish without making you look flat. I took off one star for packaging/application because I would prefer a pressed powder formula using my own brush.

              Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Agent Zero Shine:

              I always use this product on my eyelids and all around my eye to help "set" my eyeshadow and eyeliner. It really helps with making sure my shadow and liner does not smudge or fade. Also its great if you apply to your eyelashes before adding mascara. Makes your lashes look thicker. But of course I also use then all over my face to get a more flawless look. Really love this product.

              Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Agent Zero Shine:

              I use Benefit Wet to Dry foundation stick, when I ran out i went to Ulta to see if I could find anything that would make my skin less oily. By the end of the day my face looks like a grease ball. The salesperson showed me this, and said there was no better foundation than the one I was using. So far this product has been good, but I still find myself feeling oily at the end of the work day. Maybe I will try another foundation when this one runs out, but this powder does help A LOT.

                  Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Agent Zero Shine:

                  I have extremely oily skin. After an hour of putting on makeup, the oil bursts through and I'm shiny again (yes, it's disgusting). This worked for about a week - I could go 4-5 hours without getting shiny, but then it stopped working and my skin went back to normal shininess after about an hour. The price is way too steep for this to only be a temporary fix.

                      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:

                      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.

                      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.
