Benefit Cosmetics – The POREfessional (Matte Rescue Invisible Finish Mattifying Gel)

Online Description:

What it is:
An invisible-finish, mattifying gel that instantly minimizes the appearance of pores.

What it does:
This lightweight, water-based gel reduces shine and absorbs excess surface oil, leaving your complexion with a natural-looking matte finish. It instantly minimizes pores with diamond powder, known for its soft-focus pore-blurring effect. Skin is left feeling clean, smooth, and instantly refreshed.

Beauty tip:
Apply matte rescue, then pat the POREfessional primer (sold separately) on top. It leaves pores, shine, and fine lines less visible while makeup glides on smoothly.


My Thoughts:

This has a very strong alcohol smell to it, which I’m assuming is the main factor to the how fast it dries and it sure does dry quick! But honestly, this product is total crap. The sample I received lasted me 3 applications, all of which I used different brands with different formulas and none of them worked. With every attempt I made, it would crumble up with foundation and rub off. The company’s original POREfessional primer is one of the best primers I’ve ever used, but this is total garbage that I wouldn’t recommend to anyone.
