Benefit 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.

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

Fantastic for redness
Purchased

I have combination skin, and red patches around my nose and occasional Rosacea as well. This primer has been amazing for me. I combine it with Primed and Poreless also from Benefit, and I couldn't be happier. Definitely worth it, especially if you have problems with redness.

Great product
Purchased

I totally love this primer! It goes on so smoothly and really does ready the face for my foundation and builds a good base. I love the pigments in the product and my skin literally glowed after using. I would highly recommend this product and will purchase it again.

Love!
Purchased

I love this primer! It makes my skin look extra bright and beautiful. Sometimes I will even wear it alone without foundation. I also love to dab a bit on my eyelids and swipe on a bit of mascara for an easy, natural look. Highly recommend!

doesn't do much

I honestly can't tell the difference between using this and not using it. Maybe my makeup stayed on a little better, but for the most part it was like not using a primer at all, and it definitely isn't formulated for oily skin.

FAVORITE, MUST-HAVE ITEM!
Purchased

I use this product every day in place of foundation. It smooths, brightens, and honestly covers some of the lighter imperfections on my face. All I need is this product, a few swipes of mascara, and some blush! LOVE!

Not daily for me

I'll use this when I do a full face of makeup for the day, but otherwise I just don't use it a lot. It is comfortable on and doesn't cake up with other products.

Brightening

This was the first primer that I have ever used and I loved it!! It was brightening and it removed the redness that I had on my skin. However, I realized that if you put too much, it can be a tad bit oily.

Too Pink

Personally, I don't use compact or concealer because my skin is pretty clear. So I put on this product on my face using a standard moisturizer first, then the product. Once on, my skin it felt extra soft (felt extra moisturized) but it was too pink for my face. If you're going to use this, I recommended it for just highlighting one's cheeks.
