Received the trial size in "One Prime Day" along with the POREfessional. Was so upset when that ran out and turned to this, At first I liked the brightening effect of this primer. I have acne-prone and a very oily t-zone. It made my cheekbones really pop but throughout the day, it made me look like a huge greaseball. Also it's sticky and not very good for applying foundation smoothly. Would not purchase the full size
I think this is an okay primer product. I think it adds a bit of illumination to your skin... It doesn't seem to last very long though... It will not make your foundation last longer (in my experience). I tried this product twice- once I bought it and once it came with a kit of something else I wanted. Although it feels nice going on and looks nice at first, it really just doesn't do much of anything. This product is "meh". I wouldn't repurchase this.
I use a matte foundation, so wanted to find an illuminating primer. I loved the way my makeup looked right after I applied my foundation; I got that perfect dewy look I was aiming for. But hours later, I looked SO greasy, and I don't have particularly oily skin. I was literally shocked when I looked in the mirror. Definitely not for me.
At first I liked it, I would wear it without make up, but when I used it with make up I looked oily... not worth the money really
This product works fine as a normal primer, it's even slightly moisturizing, but did nothing compared to all of the rave reviews I heard before I bought it. It's okay as a primer, but isn't even close to being worth the price. I also heard that you could wear it without any other makeup over it and get a "luminous" dewy look, but for me I either can't tell I'm wearing it at all, or my face looks extremely greasy. Definitely not buying it again and I wouldn't recommend to anyone, especially for this price.
This product does absolutely nothing for me!
I bought it cause of the rave reviews and I wish I didn't.
It does nothing as a highlighter on my skin, and even less as a primer.
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!!
