Review - Benefit One Prime Day

Official Description
This set of mini primers will set your makeup and have you looking perpetually pretty no matter what the situation. "That Gal" face primer smooths on a brighter complexion, The POREfessional PRO balm minimizes the appearance of pores and fine lines, and dual-action Stay Don't Stray eye primer locks on concealer and eye shadow for all-day wear.

My Review
- - "That Gal" Brightening Face Primer - The first thing that I noticed about this little primer was the sweet smell. It was a been reminiscent of a strawberry sorbet smell. I applied a small amount to my face and I noticed an instant brightness to my face. It also gave it a soft glow. I was automatically impressed with it and loved how my face was looking that I almost did not put any foundation on afterwards. It did not feel heavy or thick on my face. When I did put my foundation on it went on smooth and evenly. The packaging is also super cute! I will definitely be purchasing a full size of this face primer.
- - The POREfessional Pro Balm - So this did minimize my pores which was awesome but I did notice that it left my face looking a bit oily. It began to wear off throughout the day. It did leave my face feeling smooth but for the steep price I do not see myself purchasing a full size.
- - Stay Don't Stray Eye Primer - I tried using this product as an eyeshadow primer but it did not work the wonders that my beloved Urban Decay Primer Potion did. I noticed a bit of creasing after a few hours of having it on. On a much lighter note, I absolutely love it for an under the eye concealer. It is the perfect shade for me and helps brightens my dark circles underneath my eyes. I would definitely use it as a concealer but not as an eyeshadow primer.

Where to buy - Sephora
