Benefit POREfessional- Pore Minimizing Makeup

Hi Lovelies
To bring out my inner secret agent, I got sent this very top secret parcel in the mail from Benefit Cosmetics NZ introducing their new POREfessional- Pore Minimizing Makeup along with most of the POREfessional collection. I had only tried out their POREfessional Primer until now and it is still to this day one of my favourite primers. Now the secret is out I might as well share with you Benefits new secret to minimizing pores and controlling oils.

Being a photographer of course I had a big grin on my face when I found out they had sent me a 'camera' box!

The POREfessional Collection
Step 1- PREP with Invisible Finish Mattifying Gel
Step 2- PRIME with Pore Minimizing Primer
Step 3- MAKEUP with Pore Minimizing Face Makeup
Step 4- ON THE GO with Shine control powder

-Pore Minimizing Face Makeup-
 A face makeup to minimizie the appearance of pores, is said to cover imperfections without settling into pores or clogging them. The weightless, long-wear formula instantly mattifies and controls excess surface oil for about 8 hours, and contains mushroom extract known to reduce the appearance of pores. 

Comes in 5 shades-
1- fair, 2- light, 3- light-medium, 4- medium and 5- medium-deep
I got sent the shade 2 which is a pretty good colour match to my skin tone. Plus it has buildable coverage and of course a matt finish.
How to use-
Shake well before opening. Pull out sponge from the base, remove cap & press button to release 1-2 drops onto sponge. Pat and blend on pore-problem areas or all over face. Apply on bare skin or over makeup.

The formula is very liquidly but once patted down with the sponge it went super matt and felt soft to the touch. With my dry skin I don't even need a setting powder.
I personally have quite dry skin but occasional get an oily t-zone, so I would most likely only apply it there. With these POREfessional products I would highly recommend for people with oily skin it will definitely mattify your face and absorb oils.

'Press' button at the back to release face makeup.

Custom pore-blurring sponge attached to the base of the tube.
You definitely need this sponge to apply your face makeup, it is so soft and somehow magically turns the liquidly formula into a very matt base.
I will attempt to clean this sponge but I think over time it maybe come to unhygienic unless they decide to sell replacements.
