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.

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

So soft and creamy - not sticky or heavy!
Purchased

I admit I missed the boat on primer at first - this lovely stuff has forgiven me all my past mistakes. I apply it lightly with the beauty blender and it lasts all day. It also looks great under fluorescent lighting.

Shimmer face!
Purchased

This primer is quite lovely...it really does brighten your face and gives it a shimmer effect, without looking overboard sparkly. I wish it had an SPF in it, but otherwise it works very well and I will continue to use it daily.

That gal primer
Purchased

I have worn it a few times and I have still not decided if I am in love. I go back and forth between colorescience powder and chanel vitalumiere. I can there is a slight "glow" before I use my foundation. After I put foundation on, I really can't tell that I have the primer on. I wonder if I could see more of a difference if I used a benefit foundation. I like the feel and I like the smell. It is a very light primer.

I don't understand this sorcery
Purchased

I've been looking for a primer to buy for a long time and finally settled on this after reading the reviews. I think it does make my makeup last longer but it isn't as powerful as other primers I've tried. The sorcery is in how this pink stuff seems to make my face glow. I was worried it was going to be sparkly but it's not at all. Maybe the effects are placebo, but I really see a difference when I use this product under my makeup. I've only worn it with a sheer BB cream and some spot concealer so I'm not sure how well it works under heavier foundation. It is a bit of a steep price. I purchased it with points and am not sure I'd buy it again full price.

Very Good Tinted Primer
Purchased

Love the tint of this primer, and it goes on smoothly. My only complaint is that it didn't seem to last very long, but I'd still buy it again.

Wanted it to work but applicator broke
Purchased

I tried this product and used it as someone suggested, a stand alone. Tried and used it and really loved the product. Then after a few uses the applicator broke - how? Not a clue. Birchbox gave me a full refund but still!

Love the dewy look!

I usually use "that gal" in place of any foundation. It makes my skin look dewy and fresh! My only wish is that the container was larger - I just ran out!
