Leading on from the success of Benefits Porefessional Pore Banishing Primer, a new product has been released with a similar concept, Benefits Porefessional Shine-Vanishing Pro Powder. The Porefessional primer has been a staple in my make up bag since I discovered it, it works brilliantly for banishing pores and filling in fine lines as well as prolonging the wear of your foundation. The Agent Shine Pro Powder follows a similar theme. It claims to minimise shine and smooth the appearance of pores whilst being invisible on the skin. Ideal for touch ups this powder comes in travel friendly packaging with a twist top to release the powder in to the lid and a mini kabuki in the base.
I absolutely love the packaging, it's ideal for popping in your handbag for touch ups if your skin gets a little shiny. I've taken this to work with me several times now to see how it performs when my face is super oily and in need of touch ups. The powder is very fine and looks as though it has a yellow undertone but applies to the skin as a transparent powder. It applies evenly and leaves you with a mattified, airbrushed finish although I don't find it did much to minimise pores. This doesn't keep me matte all day, I do have to touch up several times but it's an easy, quick process with this product and far more convenient then carrying a loose powder and a full size brush.
The only downside for me is the amount of product you get for the price. At £23.50 you get 7 grams of product so I'm not sure whether it would last you more than a few months. In comparison the Nars Loose Powder retails for £26.50 for 35 grams. It completely depends what you're after. Would I repurchase? Perhaps. I really like the travel friendly packaging and the product itself but it's not something I couldn't live without.
Big thank you to the BeneBabes for letting me trial out this product and for the incredibly tasty biscuit that came with it - such a sweet idea!
