Birchbox Breakdown

An ace beauty primer is an essential beauty investment that will pay off in dividends. Our current fave is this innovative stick primer from the experts at Benefit. The easy-to-use applicator glides directly onto skin and leaves behind a nifty gel that grabs on to and locks your makeup. Even more miraculous, the longlasting formula stays put for an awe-inspiring 15 hours.

How to Use

Gently glide the primer stick directly on to clean, moisturized skin. Blend with fingertips or a brush. Remember to turn the stick down before replacing cap.

favorite primer ever
Purchased

I love this primer. At 1st it was a little award learning how to use it where it blends in easily with my moisturizer & foundation. I blend the primer in with my finger tips & only use it in ny t-zone area & where my pores are the largest.. Avoid eyebrows, around the eye area & hair & neck lines. Use moisturizer in those avoided areas & blend in together. Also I use it on my lips & the fine lines around my mouth. It seems to keep my lipstick on & in place longer. I noticed I have less break outs after the 1st week of using this.

Too waxy and heavy on face

I really don't like this product, not because it does not work, but because feels like I am smearing a thick wax all over my face. Then topping it with foundation feels like I am wearing a mask on my face, instead of a light fresh look that I rather have. It does make your makeup last all day, however, yet this is just too thick of a product for me.

Feels like glur stick?

I love benefits but when receiving this as a gift I was not very pleased. For me this product was hard to apply. I felt like I had to rub pretty hard on my face for the product to apply.

Loving it!
Purchased

I love this primer. It really does help for 15 hours! The only improvement I would make is if it was tinted to your skin tone a bit more. When I put it on I can't tell its there as far as color goes..

Too sticky
Purchased

It may just be my skin but I find this primer a little too sticky for my liking. It doesn't seem to lend to a natural looking finish once I apply my foundation.

Love it!

This primer is really great. I bought it a few days ago, at the Benefit counter, and I asked specialist there if she had tips! She said to apply the stick directly to your face, and then put moisturizer on top of it. She said it would help me spread the primer around. Sure enough, it worked like a charm.

The primer stays ALL day (and I use it with a powder foundation), and it doesn't crease or make my skin feel greasy or oily. It's so great!

The only reason why I'm giving it two stars is that you SHOULD use it with another product, but that's my only complaint.

Great primer!

I have TONS of primers for my face and eyelids. But I received a sample of this primer and I absolutely LOVE it! As always with Benefit, the packaging is adorable, and I use it for my eyelids, which have a tendency to become oily at times, especially during the hot Arizona weather. It's soft and creamy, and has a neutral tint to it, but is very faint, not obvious. There is no odor. And most importantly, it keeps my shadows from creasing. This product would be great for anyone with dry, normal, or oily/combination skin of any skin tone. I was so in love with the sample, I had to purchase the full size. It has become one of my favorite eye primers ever! Occasionally I find Benefit cosmetics to be "gimmicky", but this really does work! Love it! Thank you, Birchbox!

Good!

Just picked up this primer and I love it! It's great under foundation. I love the way it makes my complexion look- flawless. I've tried a zillion primers and this one is my favorite. It feels like velvet.

Tacky

Feels like a glue stick. Don't like the feel of it.
