Technic Prime It Illuminating Face Primer

Primers aren't a beauty product I ever tend to reach for when applying my make up but ever since discovering this gem from TK Maxx I've been smitten with it. The packaging is very Benefit That Gal-esque so I assume this is a dupe for it at a fraction of the cost, I picked this up for £2.99 for 33ml whereas the Benefit That Gal retails for £21.50 for 11ml, so who can argue with that?

As you can see from the swatch the consistency is a thick white cream with a pearlised finish. I tend to prefer this to the L'Oreal Lumi Magique Primer as the finish is much more subtle. After I've applied the product to my face it does leave my skin feeling slightly tacky but this creates a better base for my foundation. The longevity of my foundation depends on which one I am using on that day, I've teamed this up with Nars Sheer Glow (which I've found to be long lasting) and I've been able to go from day to night. I've also worn this with the Rimmel Match Perfection foundation and together my make up has lasted a strong 9-10 hours without a touch up.

The difference between this and the Benefit offering is simply the colour and packaging, That Gal is a pink cream in a twist up applicator whereas this is a white cream in a pump dispenser. I personally prefer the packaging of this in comparisons to Benefit's as it makes application less messy. This is such a great alternative to That Gal if you're wanting to try it but don't fancy splashing out the cash.

Do you use primers? Have you tried this?
