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.

Great coverage!

I like this brightening primer. The texture is good and makes liquid and/or powder foundation go on smoothly and stays all day. Love it!

this gal's best friend!
Purchased

I’ve been using this product for years, and I can’t imagine going without it. I don’t wear foundation (only an SPF moisturizer), so this is the perfect thing to even out my complexion and add a healthy glow without being too shimmery or heavy. A little goes a long way, and it smells fantastic. I really do love everything about it!

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.

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.

This is the best primer ever. My makeup use to run all the time and now it stays in place. I would highly recommend it!

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.

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.

Helps my makeup stay put and really does brighten!

I look years younger when I wear this under my foundation! Or at least I feel that way, and I guess that's what matters. :)

Brighten your day
Purchased

I love the little bit of glow this adds under your make up. It doesn't matter if it's a night out or a day at the office, brighten up your face and look with a little of this primer.
