Whenever I visit Benefit Brow Bar, I always ask for the person working there for new product releases. Because that's how I am #pakialameraToTheNthPower . I was told their newest Benefit POREfessional Pore Minimizing Makeup products are out on shelves and not a lot of people really knew how "effective it is".
I raised my newly "waxed" brows and said: "Even better than Benefit POREfessional Balm?"
Well, that's another story, I went home, gave this new PORE Minimizing Makeup a try and I told myself this has got to have it's own portion in my blog....it is amazing, in its' own very special way.

Okay, big question coming from you guys.... "Nikki, you don't have pores, how in the hell can you review this?"
Well, that's the thing guys, I don't have Pores, my skin around the sides of the nose tends to get dry, but why am I even loving this? I was just amazed as you are!
Don't worry guys, I have photos to back me up on this, so read read muna tayo okay? :D
Benefit POREfessional Pore Minimizing Makeup Says ---
"The POREfessional: pore minimising makeup covers imperfections without settling into pores or clogging them. The weightless, long-wear formula instantly mattifies and controls excess surface oil for 8 hours*, and contains mushroom extract known to reduce the appearance of pores. Available in 4 shades"
Benefit has always been coming up not only with cute packaging, they are also creating Unique and very "high-tech" packaging that I haven't seen in my entire life!
The packaging is close to Benefit POREfessional Agent Zero Shine in terms of "non-squeezable tube" and "there's always a surprise applicator underneath".
What makes this extremely unique is the "PRESS" button that indeed dispense product so magically I had to do it so many times just because...I was having fun.
BE VERY CAREFUL though as my excitement got the best of me, the first press, the product shot all the way to the wall! Amazing, but wastage of product so it's #NoGood .
Underneath, twist the tiny cap and a sponge applicator surprises you!
The shade I got that fits my skin is Shade number 2. It is a light to medium warm undertone base. The consistency is almost like that of a tinted moisturizer, very runny so very easy to apply and blend.
I apply this product only on areas around my face that I need a bit of "blurring", "pore minimizing" and making my skin look even.
That said, approximately 3-4 drops is all I need.
Using the sponge, I gently press the product on all areas until the sponge absorbs everything. It won't take much time I promise you.
The sponge is now saturated with the product, gently press on areas around your face you need some "Blurring action". That said, mine is on the sides of my nose, my cheeks and a little bit between the brows.
Dabbing motion is your best friend. I can actually see some coverage going in there.
Everyone knew by now how dry the sides of my nose are, and how I tend to have normal/dry skin on random areas! This is a proof that Benefit POREfessional Pore Minimizing Makeup is actually made not only for people with PORE issues, it actually works even if I'm using it as a nice makeup base, or even good to go when worn alone because it can even out my skin tone, blurring out redness and even keep my skin less dry and more hydrated. I am surprisingly in love with this product!
Side by side comparison.Check out the circled portion. My skintone looks completely even, less redness, and best of all? I don't look like I have makeup on!
Can you see the difference?
Benefit POREfessional Pore Minimizing Makeup is definitely going into my professional make up kit too! I will probably use a separate sponge for each client for hygiene purpose. But personally, I'm keeping this little baby for myself!
That said, my wallet will cry because I will order backups!
