Do you remember the first makeup products ever purchased or received?

Do you remember the first makeup products ever purchased or received? What were they? If you were the one to pick them out, what drew you to those products?

I’m pretty sure my first products were Benefit, but they might have been a couple of MAC eyeshadows. It was pretty close in time. I think Benefit was first, because my best friend at the time used a lot of Benefit products, so off I went to the Benefit counter and bought my first brush, lots of eyeshadows, and Dr. Feelgood.

Thanks to Miss J for today’s question! Have a question idea? Submit yours here.

Benefit The Porefessional Review, Photos, Swatches

Quick Review: Benefit The Porefessional

Benefit The Porefessional ($28.00 for 0.75 oz.) is supposed to minimize the appearance of pores. It is a translucent balm that you can apply under or over makeup. Benefit says when applying it under makeup, to apply to clean, lightly moisturized skin, then pat on problem areas and blend with fingertips. For over makeup, pat on lightly over makeup and blend. (Doesn’t sound so different, eh?)

Please note that I did not test this on the face for an extended period of time, due to a sensitivity to dimethicone (second ingredient in The Porefessional). I only applied it to see whether my pores looked minimized. I left it on the back of my hand, and the effect lasted noticeably for four hours.

Porefessional seems to apply a soft focus lens over your skin, which gives it the appearance of a softer, smoother, and less-pore-filled. I wouldn’t say my pores vanish instantly, but they are definitely minimized, which is the goal. It is similar to MAC’s Prep + Prime Line Filler as well as bears some resemblance to face primers in general. It has a silkier texture, though, and it helps to mattify the skin as well. The product works to give skin a little help by minimizing textural issues, which pores can sometimes contribute to. It works pretty well, and it did a nice job of disguising some of the pores on the side of my nose.

Welcome to Swatch-all-idays! To start 2011 off on the right foot (or post, as it may be!), Temptalia is going through a backlog of products we have photographed, swatched, and often tested but in a slightly different manner. Quick reviews may be partially incomplete, such as a blush may only be swatched on the arm rather than shown on the face. It is our hope that what we are able to provide is still helpful!
