Mix this primer with Benefit The POREfessional for your smoothest skin yet.

Benefit Cosmetics

Birchbox Breakdown

This primer is good for more than just keeping our foundation going strong. Loaded with light-reflecting pigments, the dual-purpose formula creates a luminous base layer that can be worn alone or under makeup. We like to reapply it throughout the day to crank up the skin-brightening effect.

How it Works

Tinged with pink, this silky primer uses light-reflecting pigments to give skin a subtle glow. The longwearing formula doesn’t just smell great—it also calms finicky skin with raspberry and chamomile.

How to Use

Twist the base of the tube to release the formula. Swipe a small amount over fingertips and gently pat onto clean face. Apply it in the morning under makeup, and throughout the day to reinforce the brightening effect.

I am not sure how I lived for so long without this product. It makes my face just glow when I wear it. I wear it everyday and it brightens my face. Love it.

The Perfect Primer

I received this primer in a gift package last year and fell in love! It makes your skin look so much brighter and creates a great base for makeup. Benefit makes high quality products. A sample of this lasted me several weeks so I'm sure a full sized bottle will last a very long time!

Not a great primer

I loved the smell and feel of this product so I purchased it intending to use it as a primer. I honestly did not see any better results when I used this under my foundation as opposed to just using foundation. I've read other reviews that people like wearing only this product so it may be better when worn alone.

Love this stuff

I have a reddish complexion and this works to even out my skin tone. I wear it alone, no foundation.

Nice glimmer

I love the smell of this product. Not sure it's the best 'primer' but it's a great summer time product for people who don't wear foundation. I love just putting it on for normal day wear.

This primer is so light I forget I'm wearing it. It makes my skin glow even if I use my powder foundation. It also makes my foundation last longer.

Gives your face a little extra oomph!

Once I started using this I received so many compliments on my skin. I wear it both with or without foundation. With foundation I put on my moisturizer, That Gal, foundation, and set with powder. If I want to go a little light on the makeup I just just skip the foundation. When you set That Gal with translucent powder, you'll still get a bit of coverage to smooth out your complexion. Perfect for hot summer days when you don't want to cake your face with foundation!

good for under-eyes

It smells great and the peachy pink color makes it great for canceling out dark under-eye circles. I'm not nuts about the price but I pull out my sample size for special occasions.

Love it!!!

Covers great, really helps to keep makeup on - I am constantly touching my face and it really seems to help keep my makeup on. In addition, with sensitive and acne prone skin, I do NOT break out at all with this product. I love Benefit, That Gal, and Birchbox.
