Product Review: Benefit That Gal

So now that I've had some time to play with my new Benefit That Gal ($27) makeup primer, I thought I'd report back to you with some of my thoughts. The pros of this pinky makeup primer are that it really does make a difference in the way your makeup comes out. It's really moisturizing and your skin is left with a dewy-like layer which makes for a great base.

At first I was scared by its Pepto-Bismol color and texture—and I definitely had to do a lot of blending (a tip: a little goes a long way). But to my delight, it was really airy, and the light reflectors didn't make me sparkly or anything; they just made my skin look like it was gleaming from the inside out.

The con is the strong smell. Again, many people might like a floral scent to their makeup, but I get frightened that my sensitive skin might react. Also, it didn't really even out my skin tone. It didn't make it worse, but I found that on the more red parts of my face (like my nose) it actually looked better when I applied it after putting on the rest of my makeup.

Have you had the chance to try it yet? If so, leave a comment and let me know what you think.
