      Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional: Matte Rescue Invisible-Finish Mattifying Gel:

      I have oily skin and this didn't really do a good job for keeping my face matte. I actually prefer the regular Porefessional over this one, because it makes my makeup last longer. If you have really oily skin, skip on this and try the Becca Ever Matte

      Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional: Matte Rescue Invisible-Finish Mattifying Gel:

      I am in the deep south and it is summer so I am taking that into account and didn't expect some miracle. So it didn't seem to do anything really, except break my face out after just one use. I used a magnifier and didn't see any pore reduction at all. In the instructions it says a great tip is to use the POREfessional Primer over it. What? I thought I was buying a primer. It did make my skin matte and then I walked outside and it seemed I was more oily and more texture showed but again, the climate here. I have yet to find something that works and maybe nothing will as long as I'm outside.

          Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional: Matte Rescue Invisible-Finish Mattifying Gel:

          I hadn't used a primer before and I researched extensively over what to buy because I wanted my money's worth, wanted it to work w my foundation, etc. and I was debating whether to go drugstore or more high end bc poor college student u know how it is. I'm really happy I decided on this one. I use it with too faced born this way foundation, shape tape concealer & fit me loose powder on top and IT LOOKS SO GOOD, and if I apply just my bb cream on top my skin still looks matte on my T zone.
          Also, it comes with a decent amount of product and a little goes a longggg way - don't wear make up every single day or anything so I know this is gonna last me a while. Love !!

              Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional: Matte Rescue Invisible-Finish Mattifying Gel:

              I have combination/oily skin and can't seem to keep makeup on my face for more than half a day as it wipes off from oily skin. Bought this as a recommendation from the benefit store for my skin but it simply made me more oily than the nyx brand I was using before. Loved the feel of it when I tested on the back of my hand but my face didn't stay matte one bit.
