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.

Blends well, no shine

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.

Decent product, terrible package
Purchased

I used this primer a few times a week for less than a month before the applicator broke. Considering I got about as much use out of it as I do a sample - but for a much higher price, I'm disappointed. The product performance outside of package function was moderate, a decent base layer with some brightening effect. However it is not sufficient as the ONLY layer for 34 year old skin ;)

Pretty and light
Purchased

I really am not into primer, but I wanted to brighten up my winter skin. This primer is very pretty without being too shiny. Does not last very long, however. I wear this alone and it seems to fade before mid day. I also find that this is really no different from HighBeam from Benefit, and I already have that product. However, it does what it says and gives a pretty finish to your skin.

great on its own!

I am fair skinned and this gives a beautiful glow to my skin just on its own. I use a Stila Correct and Perfect Palette to even out my skin tone, like a little redness around my nose and discoloration under my eyes, and then apply this over top of that instead of foundation. It's so light and on days when I don't want to wear much make up, it's perfect.

Awesomeness

I have a red face. This primer goes on nicely and looks great. I was worried to put a pink primer on a red face but I'm wowed with the results. Slap a little liquid bronzer on top. Ready to go.

Awesome

Such a great product. I always notice a difference when I use this primer. I don't use it every day, but if I'm going out, I make sure I use the primer first. The product is light weight, goes on easily, and works well with all of my makeup.

Primer

This product is a great primer, I really love it because it shimmers a little giving your face a natural glow when placing on your foundation after. Love this!!

Gave this to my daughter she its now a part of her kit.
it brightens but not shiny or glossy looking. She did wear it alone for a nice natural look . Under make up what a nice addition
