I once read a fellow MUA reviewer's review on some other BeneFit product and she wrote that BeneFit products have cool names and fun packages and that's about it. It is exactly my sentiments for this particular BeneFit product as well. It looked nice with subtle shimmer on my hand in the store but unfortunately I did not try it on my face when buying and later on when I applied it on my face nothing showed. Maybe on very light girls with no freckles, no skin discolorations this may work fine but on my freckled face it does nothing. It has a nice smell though and looks like it has some moisturizer agents in it because when applied it made my skin nicely soft and supple. I will use it as a under make up moisturizing base until it is all gone and won't be re purchasing.
I do like this product, quite a lot.
If my skin is looking dull, i'll pop some on my cheeks, forehead, nose and chin UNDER/BEFORE my moisturiser or foundation.
It smells fabulous and the pink colour is lovely too.
It feels lovely, not greasy or heavy, just light and dreamy.
The box is adorable.
However, I can understand if it doesn't work on everybody, I have a fair-medium skin tone, with as weird as it sounds a yellow-green undertone, so this product perks my colour up a treat but someone with an already pink skintone may not notice as much of an effect as I do.
Mix it with your foundation and I'll reccommend this to anyone :) xxx
I fell in love with this when I first started using it. I'd have to say what first attracted me to it, besides it's oh-so-cute package, was the way it smelled. Something about the way it smells I just love! Now that I think about it, it sort of smells like permanent marker? LOL odd, but likable for some reason. My makeup does seem to last a bit longer and I do notice that it gives my face a nice glow when I use it. Usually, I like to just use this without foundation anyway and it makes my face look fresh and ready for the day. I wish it was a bit cheaper but because I am a fan, I have to cave. However, I wouldn't necessarily say this is exactly a must-have product though but I do like it.
LOVE THIS. I fell in love with that gal after years of wearing foundation and powder and having dry skin and melty make-up syndrome by the end of the day i was introduced to it by the benefit lady. As soon as she applied it, it felt cool, smelled nice and I liked it. To be honest I never really used a primer and was a but like what's the point, but first thing in a morning this cool, pink liquid wakes me up and smoothes over my pores. I especially like it because I put it under my eyes and it smoothes out my bags. It's not magic, it's a primer. But I noticed my makeup stays on longer and it gives me a nice pink glow. You can also use it mixed in with foundation, ( I've never tried) one thing I would say I don't like is the packaging, it's cute but the actual bottle is a bit of a pain in the arse, you never know when it's nearly empty and it's a bit pricey around £20 ish I think, so I buy the little sample sizes ones in bulk from eBay, which are cheaper and easier!!
I received a sample size of this in the Confessions of a Concealaholic and to be honest this really didn't brighten my face at all. It smells nice but thats about it. The product basically just rubbed into my skin and did nothing. I am glad that I didn't buy the full size one cause then I would have really been ripped off. It's a shame how these companies charge so much for products that don't even work. I wonder if they even read these reviews.
This does nothing for my skin, over or under makeup. I have pale cool toned skin and I thought this would brighten up my skin on dull days. It makes absolutely no difference!
Since using this primer I've noticed a big change in my makeup. It stays looking fresh all day and my skin looks much healthier than when I don't use it. When dispensed it is very pink but goes almost transparent when blended into skin. The packaging is cute but I'm worried that when there's not much product left it will be difficult to get out which isn't good considering the price for such a small amount! I will be buying this again when it runs out as it smells great and makes my skin look great, what more could I ask for!?
This is a nice primer, but not one for me. I have a travel-sized version of this and I'm not tempted enough to buy the full size.
This pink primer is brightening, but only slightly. I think your face would look more awake if you added a few drops of Benefit's High Beam or Moon Beam into your foundation or moisturizer.
Was not very impressed with this. I recieved a deluxe sample from sephora. Love the smell, love the packaging... found it made my face more oily.. and made my makeup come off faster.
I still stick to bare essentials prime time.. the best i have used.
I have 2 sample sizes (tubes) of That Gal. It is pink but when applied to the skin, it becomes transparent. Its texture is smooth but when applied it is slightly sticky, probably as a primer function (for foundation to adhere to). I didnt notice any difference in foundation staying power nor skin brightening effects. however it does make my concealer application smoother, thus using less concealer than usual. It smells nice, but i wouldnt buy it as a skin primer or as a skin brightener.
