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 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.

A smooth and soothing primer
Purchased

I'm usually on the fence about the necessity and effectiveness of primer, but after some time away from using That Gal I've added it back to my daily routine. Benefit's formula is soothing--almost cooling!--on the skin, and creates a great palette for your day's makeup.

Amazing but small amount

I loved benefit and this was also an amazing product I have used. I felt that the amount was a little less or maybe I was using a little too much on my face? But overall it's a good product.

Great for minimal makeup days
Purchased

I never got a sample from Birchbox but I had a small tube from years ago. Benefit makes some great cosmetics and this is a great one. I love wearing it when I only want to through some blush and lipstick on and go out, really helps for a natural look.

Nice brightening primer that does the job
Purchased

This primer has a lovely creamy berry scent that is very pleasant and isn't overpowering at all. It's a pleasure to apply! I use it to brighten up under my eyes before applying make up. I wouldn't say it's life-changing stuff, but it's nice to have.

Not for oily skin

I like this as a basic primer but considering I have a ridiculously shiny face I can't use this. Good for a few hours though

Bright Complexion

I love this stuff! It gives me a "glow" that lasts all day and shows up in pictures. It's a little thick to apply, but I really do enjoy using it.

pretty good
Purchased

I like this product because it does give you a nice dewy look, but if you put too much makeup on with it can feel kind of heavy and greasy. It doesnt go on as smooth as my clinque primer that I was replacing. I got this product because of the great reviews. I like this as a product to use for a nice glow, not so much for a daily primer which is what I was looking for.

Love the glow!

I just love a glowy, dewy look and this accomplishes that. I love the radiance that it offers and it is great to use under BB cream or even alone.

Luminizing

This primer is luminizing and lovely. You can use it as a primer or even just use moisturizer and this for a natural but radiant look.

day without makeup

This product allows you to go without concealer and still appear flawless. It seems to fill large pores with a healthy looking glow. It takes years off my face.
