Product Review : Benefit The POREfessional and Stay Flawless

Back in November 2013, I purchased a few products from Benefit which I was dying to buy
 a long time ago and finally got my brother to get it for me from Sephora, KL.
I got the Benefit POREfessional and Stay Flawless 15 Hour Primer
 after reading a lot of good reviews online as well as hearing them from my own friends.

I really love Benefit products because of their really retro/vintage theme
and also the product is really good! The only problem is that their products are pricey that's all.
Overall, I am satisfied with my purchase! 

I have been using Benefit products for a few years now but I have yet to try out their 
skincare and primers but only their eyeshadow palettes.

I have used these two palettes for years and I must say these are one of the really good stuff!
Packaging made perfect for travelling and also to bring around in my bag for touch up.
Really pigmented eyeshadows and I really love the shades and the brushes!

Okay back to the POREfessional..

You don't need a huge amount to apply on the face. 
As you can see above, that's the amount you need for your face. 
Just dab it on the areas that has large pores that you want to cover up. 

Its translucent so don't worry bout reapplying or touching up unless
 it has been a super long day and you have an event to attend at night and you need to 
retouch up your makeup.You can apply this directly on top of your makeup 
but remember to not apply too much and dab it on with your fingers.

It comes with instructions behind the box teaching you how to apply it under and over your makeup.
It comes with a small pamphlet inside as well which is really helpful. 

I love the texture and smell! It has a very silky texture and a really sweet smell too!
Its oil-free as well so this is perfect for those with oily skin.

I have to say this really is one of the products in this world I cannot survive with.
It really covers up the pores and also you can use this for a long time since you don't need 
a huge amount to apply every single time. I always apply this alone and I'm out of the house.

Now THIS is another primer I really like!
I usually use a liquid base primer but after reading reviews about this I bought it.
Stay Flawless 15-Hour Primer is a stick primer which is translucent like the POREfessional.
Just look at the cute packaging and cover! Really love the design!

One thing that really impressed me was that this primer came with a cap inside.
Now this is the first time I've seen this. I have seen other concealer,foundation and primer 
sticks that has no cap at all but Benefit made one with a cap which is really good.
Why? Because it keeps it clean from dust and other bacteria.

 Roll it up and glide on to apply and roll it back down after using it and then cover it with the cap.
It looks big and bulky but its actually pretty light and convenient to bring around!

I have used this for over 3 months now and I am very happy with the result.
I don't know about the rest of the world but I find that my makeup does stay on for a long time
and it doesn't crease as well. You can check out here on how to apply it!

I really wish they have a branch here in KK but sadly they don't.
I DID hear rumours that there will be a Sephora opening up in KK soon.
Hopefully its true so I can purchase more Benefit products. 

A few other products I really want to try out..

 Love how its a loose powder that helps to absorb the oil from the face in case your face 
gets oily and its best used together with the POREfessional. It also comes with a kabuki brush!

This looks quite similar to the Big Beautiful Eyes but with a slightly pinkish touch.
Perfect for those with slightly fairer skin! 

This foundation has A LOT of good reviews.
It was even reviewed by the famous makeup artist, Wayne Goss
You can check out his review here

More product reviews coming soon!
You can leave a comment below about other products that you'd like me to try out.
I'd be happy to try out other products for you guys!
