Ehhh

By soph

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

A lady working at Ulta recommended me this product and I bought it because she said it would keep me matte throughout most of the day. When I wore it I saw my face getting oily in after the 3 hour mark. I need a primer that will hold my oils at bay for at least 6 hours. Not impressed with this primer it's just an ordinary primer. Not anything special. It's false advertising.

Not for oily skin :(

By Aly Cat

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

I'm oily but the Tarte Amazonian clay foundation totally maintains that throughout the day w/o any primers. This feels like a cleanser or gel when first applied. Smells okay, applies nice. Just not for oily gals and guys. It does not help mattify ANYTHING (for me atleast). It honestly made my skin look way more oily than usual. It is not worth the price point. The regular POREfessional is much better!

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

    This product made my foundation look blotchy and cakey by the end of the day. I also felt like some of my fine lines were more visible. This was disappointing for an expensive product!

      I am combo skin getting oily in my T zone. This helped keep those more oily areas matte throughout the day. I didn't feel the need to blot. It paired well with NYX, Cover FX and Tarte primers. I already repurchased during the sale.

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

      This product applies smoothly but after 2 hours I started to feel my face getting oily around my T-zone. Had to apply matte compact powder throughout the day since I kept getting oily. No difference about my pores. Tbh the pore fessional primer is better at smoothing out the pores

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

        This product is incredible. I have struggled with oily skin my entire life. I've tried so many products that promise oil control but always end up having shiny skin within an hour of applying my make up. I purchased Porefessional Matte Rescue yesterday and have used it only twice but am so impressed. I have had my makeup on all day and no shine at all. I started with Matte Rescue then used my Becca mattifying primer. For foundation I used Makeup Forever in matte velvet and finished off with Cover F/x finishing spray. The Matte Rescue is the only change from my usual routine and it made a world of difference. 10 hours of makeup with zero shine! To give you an idea of how oily my skin is, I typically go through 8-10 blottings papers per day. Today I have not blotted at all. I recommend to anyone struggling with oily skin!!!

        Fills pores does nothing to mattify

        By Stella

        from CT

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

        I have extremely oily skin, this did nothing to keep me matte. Does fill in pores, but i purchased it because it said it was a Matte Rescue, not for the pore ruling properties

        Best used with porefessional primer underneath

        By Brit2307

        from Illinois

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

        I use the porefessional primer, then mattifying, this will stretch your primers... Use a matte makeup liquid, apply with brush and spray with a oil control setting spray. You'll be able to walk in 100 degree temps and makeup stays in place all day. Not recommended in winter temps unless you're very oily.
