Benefit POREfessional Agent Zero Shine | The Review

The newest addition to the Benefit Cosmetics family is a powder called Agent Zero Shine. Following in the steps of it’s award winning sister, the POREfessional primer, this beauty instantly minimises shine and helps to smooth the look of pores while mattifying any oil or shine. It comes in one shade designed to match all skin tones and it is incredibly lightweight. The oil – free formula is not at all drying or cakey – even over my dry skin and lasts around 2-3 hours. You can use it over moisturised skin for those no-makeup days or over your foundation to set. 

Aside from the product itself, the packaging is quite exciting. It is housed in the typical Benefit packaging, very cute and retro. But the rest is entirely unique. The product sits in a compact tapered tube with a lid and a brush in the base. To use it, you simply pour the powder into the lid and use the provided brush to pat onto the skin. It is ideal for touch-ups on the go and small enough to fit in a handbag or clutch. Although i admit the brush is nothing to write home about, the product itself is a winner. 

You can purchase the POREfessional Agent Zero Shine through Sephora for $36 or the Benefit website for $30.

    This sounds promising, although I'm not a fan of the 'matte' look and more of the 'dewy' look myself. It's such a shame that there's hardly any products out there which sets foundation and makeup but keeps that dewy glow! Sharlotte | UK Beauty Blog

      I'm a dewy skin fan myself, i normally stay as far away from powder as i can but sometimes you need to set a little concealer or something and i found this one worked beautifully!
