Review: Benefit "That Gal" Brightening Face Primer

"That Gal" by Benefit- $28

What is it?
A pink primer that makes your skin appear smoother and brighter.

Why did I buy it?
I was looking for a primer to brighten and make my makeup really stick to my face.

Should you sample this?
This primer is good.  It's a little pricey for the amount you get but it does what it says. I wear it under my Josie Maran tinted moisturizer or alone to give a kick to my complexion. I apply it with my beautyblender.  It smells great and blends well. My makeup stays on all day but if I'm wearing it alone I sometimes touch it up for a little extra brightening. Full disclosure, this product may not be good for darker skin tones since it is pink. If you are looking for a primer to brighten your face (as well as your day), you should sample this.

"That Gal"can be purchased at Benefit Cosmetics and Sephora

  2. I have tried the moisturizer, but the fragrance was too strong for me. Love the packaging though!
