Does this Pore-fessional duo Score five stars?
I was shown this kit during my search for a new primer to help combat my skin issues that cause my makeup to be patchy. I suffer from large pores on my cheeks, and oiliness on my T-Zone, so I was suggested to buy this kit, as it includes a full-size Pore-fessional, and a travel size Pore-fessional Matte Rescue, which I could then use to mix and match my primers to my problem areas.
I have used Pore-fessional before, it’s a nude coloured silicon based primer so has a great ability to fill your pores to smooth skin texture whilst subtly evening skin tone – but this was my first time with Matte Rescue.
Matte Rescue was the biggest let down of the century. It was sold to me as a mattifying gel that dries down, but instead what I got was a gloopy mess that no matter how long I left it to dry for peeled along with my foundation. No matter whether I set it with powder, then applied my foundation or concealer on top – it became a patchy mess.
The only plus to buying this set is that it cost the same as the standard Pore-fessional so the Matte Rescue was free along with a miniature It’s Potent which is handy for my upcoming holiday…
Bottom Line: Stick to the original and give the Matte Rescue a big old miss…
Price: £26.50 from Benefit Cosmetics
Rating: *** (Just stick to the original and enjoy the It’s Potent eye cream).
