I LOVE THIS!!!!! It allows for an easy coverage/blending of foundation and gives a glow....also you only need a little to do a lot and it lasts a long time and it has a moisturizing effect on dry skin...without making makeup shine!!
My favorite primer, hands down. I have oily skin and worried that it would just make me look shiny, but somehow I end up looking glowy, not oily. That Gal minimizes my pores and gives the prettiest subtle-yet-noticeable glow. Some days, I have to be at school very early, and this is the one thing that makes me look awake and ready to go. Plus, I think my cheeks look great in pictures! I love the packaging, but I wish it weren't opaque with a sticker around the center because I'd like to be able to see how much product I have left. Yes, it probably is too expensive, but I'm sure it'll last a very long time, and there's always eBay!
I don't like this stuff. It goes on well, but after a while, I am very aware of it being on. It makes my skin feel oily as well.
I have been so disappointed with the BeneFit line! I am willing to pay for expensive makeup, but it HAS to be worth it, a huge difference from anything else that I can get for cheaper. This was a bust. My skin is moderately clear, and VERY oily, and I was needing something to control the oil so my foundation didn't get goopy and gross by the end of the day. There was no oil control, there was no change in how my makeup looked or how it went on, this was really just an additional layer of 'stuff' I put on during my makeup routine. I hated that it didn't work, I loved the smell of it, it was so fresh and sweet, and the packaging was really cute. But scent and packaging aren't worth much if the product sucks!!
Uhm, let's see.How do I say this gently? This product does nothing. Absolutely nothing. I love the packaging, and it feels good on, but I notice no difference with or without makeup except that with this on liquid foundation won't stick to my cheeks and nose. That's all I got.
When I bought this product at first I didn't think I would like it. The idea of twisting a bottle of pink stuff onto my face did not seem appealing. But over time it's grown on me and now it's my HG :) I wear this with foundation or by itself, either way I love it. The smell is sweet, the packaging is so fun (I actually enjoy twisting the bottle and watching the product come out, it reminds me of play do) and it refreshes my face. I guess I'm the only one here who likes this, my skin reacts well to it and I don't break out when I put it on. If only it wasn't so expensive, for 28 bucks I wouldn't buy it again!
It's my HG primer. I've tried Smashbox but I always come back to this one.
I use moisturizer, primer, concealer, then foundation. I feel that the makeup won't clog up my pores as much if it's sitting on top of the primer. It gives a nice boost of freshness.
so i'm giving this a 3/5. This product is decent. The smell is very lovely... & it does help brighten up your face. My face tends to be on the "red" side.... so putting this on alone does help to even out my skin tone & gives it a nice, dewy glow... i always like to be tan...so i;ll mix this with a liquid bronzer and put it all over my face. & then put a sheer powder over it to even out the shinyness that i get & to also set in the color. As far as it keeping on makeup longer.... it does a OK job... but then again...this is the only primer that i have used so i cant really compare it to anything. i'll also dap this on under neath my eyes to even out the dark circles. doesnt completely get rid of them...but helps make me look more "awake" . as far as repourchasing...i probably would! Just make sure you don't use the same make up sponge over and over when applying this bcuz the packaging is a little cheap. You have to "turn" the bottom to have the product come out of the little holes on the top. Overall its nice.. but not my HG.
This a really lovely primer.
I find that if your looking to brighten up your complexion you can apply this without even having to put on foundation as it leaves a refreshed healthy looking glow without clogging up your pores to much.
The packaging is great and it smells nice, unfortunatly thats the only good thing for me. It did not make my foundation stay on longer then usual and it brought me out it great big sore red spots (not nice on my normally clear skin)
overpriced and not worth it
