Benefit POREfessional Agent Zero Sunshine

IMG_3688If you have oily skin then you know that blotting is a must have, not buts about it. You can’t avoid it, it’s just as much part of me as brows are at this point. We peek at ourselves in any mirror to make sure we aren’t a greasy mess.  I used to carry blotting papers, in till my dear friend Christina (Check her out) who works for beauty blender gifted me a blotterazzi

My thoughts: I have 1 complaint for this product, well actually 2.

  1. No mirror, if I am out this means I would need to carry another item to have a mirror. Yes, probably can get away without a mirror. But what about the fall out? If I would need to count on someone telling or again to see myself in a mirror. ( I need a mirror).
  2. The packaging is bulky! The powder is good doesn’t leave you super cakey or anything. But if I have a clutch, I can’t carry this with me. It’s too chubby to fit in there. I love the idea of it, but I much rather have a compact. Yes, standard compact.

img_3690.jpgOverall I liked the product. Hell! I have 2 of them but it’s not as convenient if you’re going out at night and want to look cute with a small clutch. If they made this also in a compact, I would definitely consider purchasing.

Try it! Tell me what you think, I’d love to hear from you.
