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.
After receiving this as a gift, I was skeptical about it working on my combination skin. The packaging itself was enough to scare me and my fear of spreading nasty germs around my face (you know those pesky pimples). So I would swipe this product across my finger and dab it over my T-zone. I found that this did not stay at all on my skin. It actually made my foundation slip off through out the day.2
does exactly what is says make up lasts all day and into the evening, i have purchased several use it every day5
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.4
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..4
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.3
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.
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!5
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.3
Feels like a glue stick. Don't like the feel of it.2
I loved this product! it glides on to the skin and leaves no shiny finish. your face makeup goes on smoothly and lasts all day. it's like a glue stick for your makeup!5
