Benefit: The POREfessional

Disclaimer: This post contains an affiliate link.

I feel like it's been awhile since I did a makeup product review!  It probably hasn't, but just feels that way, you know?  So...guess what we're doing today...a makeup product review!  Benefit's POREfessional has become my new favorite weapon, I mean secret.  This stuff is seriously a must have in any girl's makeup kit!


I actually first bought a tube of this months ago.  I bought it based on online reviews.  I liked it, but for some reason I didn't stick with using it and it ended up collecting dust in my stash.  Well, fast forward to about two weeks ago when I stumbled upon this and decided to give it another try.  For the life of me, I can't figure out WHY I stopped using this months ago.  It's fantastic!!

Maybe one difference is that I'm now using a different primer (Benefit's 15 Hour Stay Flawless Primer) and it just works hand in hand with this particular one since they're both by Benefit.

So, what's so fantastic about it, you ask?  I don't have to touch up my makeup during the's that awesome!  My skin doesn't look shiny, it doesn't look dry, it just looks nice and fresh.  I think the primer gives the POREfessional something to stick to, so it lasts throughout the day.  It has a bit of mattifying to it, but not in dry, powdery way, just a 'I'm not shiny' way.  I'll be interested in seeing how this combo holds up for summer!  Granted here in frozen CT, I still have awhile before anything summer-like appears around these parts!

A tube of this stuff should last quite some time...a little bit goes a long way and it's a pretty generous sized tube to begin with!
