Benefit That Gal

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.

Not a great primer

I loved the smell and feel of this product so I purchased it intending to use it as a primer. I honestly did not see any better results when I used this under my foundation as opposed to just using foundation. I've read other reviews that people like wearing only this product so it may be better when worn alone.

Overhyped

I used this primer for a few weeks and didn't notice any brightening at all. It also made my skin feel sticky on warmer days - not cool. Buy a Smashbox primer and save your money.

Lots of Shimmer

Benefit's luminizers are full of shimmer. Love this for a night out and looks good on many shades of skin, but would never wear this to work.

Mix with Porefessional for an added oomph

This brightening primer is perfect for light coverage when mixed with Porefessional. I like to re-apply if I am feeling less than luminous.

This product is okay. Goes on a little pinkish when I was looking for more of a golden glow like the BB glow product.

Just okay

Of all the primers I've tried this one is just okay. I don't think my foundation lasted any longer than it usually would and I definitely wouldn't wear it alone.

Amazing

I'm very picky with primers and foundation but this product I loved. Very thin primer and smooth. Did not make me feel like I clumped on a ton of makeup on my face

I love this product! It is very lightweight and helps keep my makeup on all day, whether I am using a foundation or just a powder. It is wonderful!

Great Primer... Brightener? Not so much

I loved the way this primed the skin for foundation - works just like the pore-fessional. I didn't notice any real difference in the brightness. Perhaps I needed to reapply throughout the day as they suggest - but who has time for that? And I worry that would mess up my foundation. Wouldn't wear alone, but would purchase as a primer again.

Good

I received a sample, tiiiiny, size of this. I was expecting something more thick for priming but it really does make a difference with brightening. However, for the price of a fu size I wouldn't buy it.
I've tried other brightening primers that I felt did the same job.
