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.

    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional: Pore Minimizing Makeup:

    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.

    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional: Pore Minimizing Makeup:

    I asked the employee for a full coverage... she recommended this product.... it is the most sheer coverage I have ever used in my life. I was not pleased. I love the brand, but this does not work as foundation. It's more of a lightly tinted primer for an insane amount of money. The sponge that's on the packaging for applying absorbs most of the product.

      Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional: Pore Minimizing Makeup:

      I use this with an IT brush (the airbrush foundation brush) all I do is squeeze a few drops on to the brush and then just work it on to my face. I never used the little sponge that's connected to the bottle I mean come on you can obviously tell that's not going to do much or anything so I obviously knew I had to use a brush and trust me it works best if u squeeze few drops on to a brush

        I use the POREfessional: Pore Minimizing Makeup as a daily foundation and I really love it. It is easy to apply and it is light-weight (it feels like my skin, not something caked on). This type of foundation isn't for everyone because its not a typical liquid foundation, but it has won me over and I love it.

        Worst foundation

        Pros

          Cons

          • Difficult To Apply
          • Dries too quickly
          • Poor Coverage
          • Pricey / Poor Value
          • Too matte

          Best Uses

            Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional: Pore Minimizing Makeup:

            Ulta employee convinced me I would love it and I thought I liked it from swatching it but after using it once I realized I hate it. The applicator it works with works well but it's too small to do anything with, and anything else you use to apply it absorbs too much product. The bottle says use a few drops but I needed to like squirt it down my face to get it to cover everywhere and for it to stay wet enough to blend out because it dries way too quick and too matte.

            Really nice product, I found it difficult to apply at first because it is really watery. I am used to thicker formulas. I have dry/oily skin and this works really well. It is pricier than what I am used to though.
