Benefit Cosmetics silky pink primer takes your complexion from dull to darling! Simply blend it on for the look of brighter, smoother skin. Contains light-reflecting pigments to help brighten all skin tones and raspberry & chamomile to soothe skin.

Twist the base until the primer is distributed on the top. Apply with fingertips onto the face. Blend this silky pink primer in an even, upward motion. Wear alone or under makeup for smoother makeup application. Gently pat on during the day to re-brighten your complexion.

Beauty tip: "That Gal" is the perfect partner to your foundation or moisturizer. If you're a no-makeup gal, wear it solo for a darling glow.

      Comments about Benefit Cosmetics 'That Gal' Brightening Face Primer:

      I love it so much! It wears amazingly under my foundation and helps it last all day it's also the perfect texture! Sometimes I will wear it by itself and I get tons of compliments on my skin on those days(and I don't have perfect skin) deff worth the money. Only thing I don't like is I can't tell how much I have left in the container

                from Illinois

                Comments about Benefit Cosmetics 'That Gal' Brightening Face Primer:

                I wanted so badly to love this product. Based on the reviews and the product description, I had hoped it would make my dry bright and glowing. It might be that my skin just isn't suited to this product, but I couldn't see any noticeable difference, either with or without a tinted moisturizer put over it (in fact, it almost seemed mattifying on my skin---the opposite of what I expected). I'll continue to experiment with it, but it's pretty disappointing, especially considering the product isn't cheap.

                • Q:

                  Does this primer (when used after moisturizer, but before applying makeup) have any effect on the FINAL makeup look (e.g., dewy vs matte)?

                  If used alone over moisturizer, is it dewy or matte?

                  And does it fill lines & pores like smashbox's photo finish primer, or do I have to use this with the Benefit's pore primer?

                    Hi gorgeous! "That Gal" brightens the look of skin but does not affect the final makeup look. It provides a matte look if worn alone. We recommend wearing "That Gal" with The POREfessional for the ultimate pore protection!

                  I'm looking for a primer that will minimize pores, but also extend the wear of my liquid foundation. Which would be better for this, That gal or the porefessional. I've never tried either yet and I don't know which one to go with.

                    Hi gorgeous!

                    We have two primers that would be perfect for you! First, apply stay flawless to freshly moisturized skin. This instant PRO-long primer acts like a magnet to lock on your foundation for 15 fresh & flawless hours. Next, apply the POREfessional to quickly minimize the appearance of pores & fine lines for smoother-than-smooth skin (you can even mix the POREfessional with your liquid foundation and apply together!). You'll love how your makeup looks flawless all day :)

                    You can find both primers here at ULTA:

                  I am loving my Benefit skin care, and thanks to your generous sampling program, have purchased the entire line! However, I am hoping to understand the difference between "That Gal", "Watts Up", and "High Beam". They all seem to be brighteners, so what is the difference?

                    Hi gorgeous!

                    So glad to hear that you love our b.right! Radiant Skincare line! We're fond of it ourselves ;)

                    "That gal" is a brightening face primer. The silky pink formula contains light-reflecting pigments to help brighten all skin tones and raspberry & chamomile to soothe skin. Wear "that gal" alone or under makeup for smoother makeup application!

                    Watt's up! is a soft focus highlighter. The cream-to-powder finish and delicate champagne glow are ideal for soft focus highlighting. Watt's up! can be applied solo or over existing makeup.

                    High beam is a luminescent complexion enhancer. The satiny pink liquid formula accents cheek & brow bones for a dewy, radiant glow! Use high beam as a spot highlighter over makeup or wear under complexion products for subtle luminescence.

                  Hello, I have freckled skin--which I like-- so I don't use fondation, but I LOVE using a matte bronzer and powder over top. I would like to try That Gal to prolong my bronzer. Can I wear this alone with only bronzer? Also I have normal but sometimes dry skin, is That Gal going to hydrate my skin? Thanks in advance!!!

                    A:

                    You can certainly wear this alone for a natural glow and to extend the wear of your bronzer! It will brighten and even your complexion without covering your freckles.

                    "That Gal" isn't super hydrating, so we'd recommend applying a moisturizer first, especially if your skin is on the drier side!

                  Will this product be okay with sensitive skin? I have eczema and usually tend to stick to fragrance free products. I have a heard a lot of good reviews on it however and wanted to give it a try but just need to make sure it is suitable for very sensitive/dry skin types.

                    A:

                    This product does contain fragrance, so for extremely sensitive skin, spot test a small amount of product on an inconspicuous area of your skin first to make sure you have no adverse reaction before using as directed. This product contains raspberry & chamomile extracts to soothe skin. For dry skin, gently exfoliate and moisturize skin before application of this product for best results.

                    This product and Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional (Item #: 2219868) can certainly be worn together for a flawless complexion. The order of application would be: "That Gal", blended all over the face, followed by The POREfessional, applied to problem areas, and lastly, your foundation.
