Now we know what you're thinking — why try Benefit Cosmetics Stay Flawless 15-Hour Primer
($47) when you're addicted to Porefessional? Well, there's a few reasons. While Porefessional goes to work on blurring the appearance of enlarged pores, this new stick formula is all about giving your foundation staying power. We know primers help keep makeup in place, but some don't always get us through the entire day. This one does! Just like the packaging states, it is a long-wearing makeup magnet.
We loved the stick application because it allows for a more targeted approach and banishes spillage. That said, have a think about applying with a brush because it isn't overly hygienic to put the stick straight on your skin each day. Another thing to note, keep this primer away from overly dry areas as it can cause a bit of build up. It applies clear and dewy, but sets with a matte, dry-looking finish. Be sure to let it settle in and dry before applying your foundation. We finished with a setting powder and 15 hours later (yes, we work that hard!), our foundation still looked fresh. Pretty impressive.
