Benefit Cosmetics "That Gal" Brightening Face Primer

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.

Good as a foundation, too.
Purchased

I bought this to use as a primer for my foundation, but after wearing it for a few days I decided to try it AS my foundation. And it works great!
I have a light complexion and it actually works great as a daily wear lightweight foundation. It has a bit of a sparkle, so it gives my face a very slight and not over the top luminous look.
For when I go out in the evenings I use it as a primer and my foundation is always still in place after hours.
It is definitely part of my go-to regime now.

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.

Best Primer Ever!
Purchased

I love this stuff. It's a little pricey and the tube doesn't last too terribly long, but it's the perfect primer for my old and tired skin. It sets my foundation really well, but a lot of times, I'll just wear this alone and skip the rest of my routine. I like the twist up mechanism because then I always know that I've used every last little bit!

I look for brightning products with skincare and primers this does the job.

I glow when I use this. Fantastic primer. It keeps my skin moisturized and Just makes me looks so radiant which is the look I go for everyday. I am all about a dewy complexion and this product achieves that look for me.

Glow-aroma

I adore "That Gal" primer... everything from the delicate aroma of roses to the smooth feel during application to the way it balances and smooths out my color for a bright, seamless glow. I recommend blending it with a smoothing primer for a nice surface on which to build.

Love this product
Purchased

2nd time purchasing this. It lasts forever. I like to mix it together with my Benefit "hello flawless" foundation! It brightens up my whole face while adding coverage.

Benefit That Gal' Brightening Face Primer
Purchased

I tried this product at the urging of a friend and love it! It has a refreshing fragrance. The product provides a very subtle pink skin brightening effect that is smooth as silk. I used it under my usual foundation (Dr. Jart+).

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

Blends well, no shine
Purchased

Easy to incorporate - I use with and without primer and BB Cream and find it blends with whatever I add to it. Works well as a "topcoat" on my apples as opposed to blush.

Glow

I like this primer for the glow it gave my skin. It is a weekend must have. The only reason I stopped using "that girl" because I don't have the time to do lots of make up and I became a bb fan.
