Beauty | Hold me tight!

On today's menu, we've got a girl thing again.
For the men out there; sorry!
But you know what? You can use this post as tip in case you need to buy a gift to a friend which likes beauty products, does not have that much time for that stuff, wants to look put together without much effort.

Yep, I'm that kind of girl.
Working at a men's environment can lead you to put your feminine side a bit aside, but I try to avoid that as much as I can. A way to achieve that is to do my make-up every morning. Something simple, fast but that works. No crazy eye looks or whatsoever.
I should mention that I do my make-up before 7am and usually remove it at 11pm! When I do this, I can tell that my make up held pretty nice during the day. Oh, I don't do any touch-ups during the day, btw!
It wasn't always like this, until I found the Benefit POREfessional.

You might have see this baby here.
Well, this tiny little tube, it's my savior!

What does Benefit say:
Why we love it!
Quickly minimize the appearance of pores & fine lines for smoother-than-smooth skin! Apply this silky, lightweight balm alone, under or over makeup. Translucent, oil-free formula complements all skintones and helps makeup stay put. Contains a Vitamin E derivative, known to protect skin from free radicals.
Sephora 15ml / The POREfessional 7.5ml
What do I say:
I love it!!! As a primer, it works just amazingly. My skin is smooth and the foundation holds on the whole day! After over 12hrs, it's not as good as when I apply it, but it's still there (I've normal/dry/sensitive skin).
I prefer this primer over the one from Sephora that I used before.
The minus point is the price; in my opinion it's a bit pricey which was the main reason why I only bought the mini-size first, but after seeing its performance I do think it's worth the money!

Price info: 
The PORE fessional : 32EUR for 22ml on
Sephora's : 10.95EUR for 15ml also on

I have to get my hands on the full size ASAP and I know we will be become long time partners.
Why didn't I try this one before?!...
