Benefit Cosmetics 'That Gal' Brightening Face Primer from the One Prime Day mini set.
The Benefit Cosmetics That Gal Brightening Face Primer is part of the Sephora Exclusive One Prime Day minis set.  The original/full-size packaging is quite different - a twist-up stick kind of packaging that dispenses product with each twist.  The primer I have has a different and simpler tube packaging.  That apart, it's the same product, and I prefer this type of packaging over the twist-up version.

Benefit Cosmetics 'That Gal' Brightening Face Primer - Review

I was a bit taken aback when I first tried out the Benefit 'That Gal' primer.  A creamy pinkish product (similar to calamine), it didn't seem exactly what a darker skinned person like me would want to try on.  Not to worry, the cream blends and disappears into the skin.  As for the pinkish base, I really haven't noticed any colour once I blend the product into my skin.  The primer leaves my skin looking soft and gives a healthy glow without any noticeable whitish cast.  It doesn't really make my face oily or greasy, but does leave my skin feeling a bit more supple and dewy, and I feel this is a better product for the combination-dry skins or for use during the winters.

That Gal is labeled as a brightening face primer, and while it does deliver on the skin brightening claims and makes my skin slightly smoother, I don't know how much effect it has in terms of making my makeup stay on longer.  My foundation stays on fine and just the same with or without it.  I like to use this on days when I don't want to put on any other makeup - a bit of 'That Gal' on my face is all I need to go from bare-faced and sleepy to naturally healthy looking skin.
