Hands up who watched the Olympic Opening Ceremony last night?
I know I did and was pretty much glued to the screen for it's entire duration,
my favourite part always is when they bring the athletes out.
Italy and Mexico have my vote for best dressed haha!
Anyway to celebrate such games coming to the U.K Benefit have launched a specially packaged
version of their ever famous primer - That Gal!
As I haven't reviewed this in the past I thought today would be the perfect time to do so.
"Specially made to celebrate the 2012 Summer Olympics, this collector’s-edition “that gal” is the brightening primer of champions. It features light-reflecting pigments to help brighten all skintones…and soothes with raspberry & chamomile. Let the pretty games begin!"
As mentioned Benefit That Gal London is specially packaged in a circular tube that has a twist up function to dispense the product, those with childish minds like myself will relate it to a glue stick and find it very amusing! Both the box and tube feature images synonymous with London such as Big Ben and The London Eye, it is very cute all the while being patriotic and the twist up function of the applicator works extremely well with the consistency of That Gal.
Benefit That Gal is a brightening, light reflective facial primer that is a soft oyster pink liquid product.
Essentially you wear it under foundation or on it's own to add radiance to the skin and brighten the complexion, it is particularly effective on dull complexions or after a night on the tiles.
As a primer I find it to brighten but also prolong the wear of any liquid product applied on top
without resulting in an overly shimmery complexion or adding to my already oily skin.
However you can also use Benefit That Gal as a liquid highlighter, simply apply to any area you want to add accentuate and blend but my absolute favourite way to use this product is to mix a little in with my foundation for a slightly sheerer coverage but with all luminosity!
I hope you are enjoying the Olympics wherever you are based!
