Benefit Porefessional Pore Minimizing Makeup

It's a FRIDAY! And I'm just so happy to be a girl today. You know those days when work is just the right kind of inspiring, and you spend some time with colleagues talking about MAC Lip Kits, Colourpop Lip Kits and chemical-less beauty products. I'm wearing a new dress from Self Portrait and it's sunshiney where I sit. I'm happy and life is all good. I'm heading home to my puppy and I am looking forward to baking cupcakes tomorrow. 

Today, I'd like to share with you my review of Benefit Porefessional Pore Minimizing Makeup. 
Target pore problem areas with the POREfessional: pore minimizing makeup by Benefit Cosmetics. This longwearing matte makeup covers imperfections without clogging pores. The weightless formula, made with more-minimising mushroom extract, reduces the look of pores and controls excess surface oil for up to eight hours. Thanks to a custom, built-in pore-blurring sponge, it’s easy to use any time you need a pore-be-gone touchup.

What it is: This is Benefit's follow up to their wildly famous Porefessional primer and matte primer collections. I've been a serious fan of both primers and it gives me serious comfort that I still have about two tubes left. This new product is a sister of sort and promises to minimize the appearance of pores because of the inclusion of a special mushroom extract. How that happens, I'm not really sure :P

What I Think: The first time I tried this, I put on rather very few drops {as seen on the photo}, it was a weekday and I was rushing to a morning meeting so it was rather convenient that the product came with a small sponge. I tapped on the "Press" button and the foundation came out easily. It's a wee bit watery than I had expected but my guess is that it helps in covering imperfections better. Coverage is medium but buildable; no scent. 

As you can see, skin is still natural looking without looking cakey or too thick. I hate it when my makeup looks too thick and I am quick to judge myself when that happens. I'm very happy about this new Benefit cult favorite in the making.

Overall: At PHP 1,700, this is not bad at all :) Since I ran out of my foundation du jour, Happy Skin SS Creme, this is replacing that in my everyday makeup bag.

Benefit Porefessional Pore Minimizing Makeup is available at all Benefit stores and online via Sephora at PHP 1,700.
