Benefit Cosmetics is launching a foundation version of their cult fave Porefessional primer, and OMG yes

Anytime a brand expands on a cult fave product, like Benefit’s POREfessional Primer, we flip out because we can pretty much rest assured that what’s to come is going to be as brilliant as the original. The news that Benefit is launching a foundation version of the POREfessional Primer is HUGE, seeing as their legions of fans are absolutely devoted to the original primer. We can only hope this means that a groundbreaking, next-level foundation is headed our way!

If a product has been tested and deemed tried-and-true by beauty junkies and professionals alike, it truly deserves the moniker cult fave and is elevated to legendary status. Benefit’s POREfessional Primer is worthy of the name, and we have a feeling the foundation will follow it on along that path!

The POREfessional Pore Minimizing Makeup is launching in June and will be available for $30.


Just like the aforementioned primer, the foundation targets pore problem areas with a weightless, ultra-thin formula that covers imperfections and visibly minimizes pores.

One of the coolest features of the foundation is that it has a built-in custom pore-blurring sponge that ensures smooth, seamless blending with a precise application. It covers imperfections without clogging pores, smoothes and reduces the look of pores, instantly mattifies and controls excess surface oil for up to eight hours.

The lovely Huda Kattan is one of the first to get her hands on this exciting new foundation, and she gave us a little sneak peek on her InstaStories.


The foundation comes in fives shades: Ivory, Warm Honey, Amber, Natural, and Beige. We hope that when the foundation inevitably soars in popularity that they’ll come out with an even more inclusive shade range!


That’s a lot of foundation!

We can’t wait to see swatches and get a look at the consistency. We are so intrigued by that pore-blurring sponge — can you just imagine how flawless it must make your skin look? We can’t wait to try it!

Keep your eyes peeled for more information about the POREfessional Pore Minimizing Makeup, like an exact release date and hopefully some swatches!
