    The packaging is cute. The product works but can be messy when applying the powder from the cap with the brush as the powder can get on your clothes if you're not careful.

            Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Agent Zero Shine:

            Application container is a little awkward. You have to pull the brush pit from one end, take the cap off the other end, twist open and pour out loose powder into cap. Dip brush in lid, then reverse actions to close up. Just a few too many steps! Product works as described and does a great job!

                This, used anywhere besides my lower eyelid for setting, causes intense itching and dryness and breakouts. I completely regret buying it and should have returned it, but totally waited too long.

                    Does this product have flashback? Like in photos I know some powders will make you look like a ghost in flash photos and is this something you can use even without makeup just to minimize the Appearance of pores and help with oily skin ?

                      Hi Gorgeous! I would highly recommend this product to anyone who suffers with shine (especially in photographs). This is perfect for creating a matte finish to your makeup or over moisturized skin. Flashback will really depend on the lighting conditions under which you'll be photographed. xoxo B

                      A:

                      Hi Gorgeous! You can apply our POREfessional face primer first and then apply POREfessional Agent Zero Shine last. You do not need to apply all three together as the POREfessional Matte Rescue is a mattifying gel to absorb oil. You can apply POREfessional Matte Rescue all over your freshly cleansed face to instantly absorb oil then apply POREfessional primer on top for smoother-than-smooth skin. xoxo B
