works well

By imogene

Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional: Pore Minimizing Makeup:

I wasn't really sure if it would work but I have been using it for a couple of days and it seems like it's working well. I use a primer before this so maybe that helps as well. I wouldn't buy it for full price tho. good thing it's on sale and I got the 20% off everything coupon to go with it. go get it while on sale.

      Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional: Pore Minimizing Makeup:

      I hate foundation but I want a good base product. Most cc and B.B. creams are too oily or thick for me. The lady at ulta directed me to this product and I LOVE it. I wear powder face makeup but needed something to apply beforehand. I Use the Ulta buffing brush and it works good. It's so light and soft and gives that airbrush finish. I do not feel like I'm wearing any additional makeup which is what I love. It's the perfect product for someone with clear skin that hates foundation but wants light coverage.

          Practice makes perfect!

          Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional: Pore Minimizing Makeup:

          When I first used this product I applied with the sponge it came with and got streaky coverage tha t made me look super orange even after I set it. the next time I used it I tried using a silicone blender which worked a lot better however it still wasn't what I was looking for. Finally what I have found to work best for me is using a supple brush and working in sections. This gave me nice and even coverage and helped blend the product more evenly so I didn't look like a bunch of heavy orange streakyness throughout my face. I have oily skin with some acne marks and some blemishes here and there. This product keeps me matte for almost 10 hours, creases a little, minimizes my poors, and most importantly doesn't break me out. I usually try to use bbcreams because I prefer a natural look. This is the only foundation I will use because it lasts and doesn't break me out. I love lightweight coverage and don't mind having some imperfections show here and there because I still like looking like an actual human being when I where make up. It's also perfect for layering if you would like more coverage.

          I tried the product with the porefessional primer and did not like it. I've been using it on top of other foundations and it's magic. It blurs my pores and fine lines. I will never let myself run out of this stuff.

            I have terrible pores around my nose and this product covers the problem areas . For the most part , I only use it for problem areas and blend it with my normal foundation. Worth trying if you have problems with makeup rubbing off around your nose or just need extra cover for pores.
