Benefit girl meets pearl comes housed in a hexagonal cardboard box packaging. The actual product as a purple chromed twist up cylindrical tube & cap with perforations at the top for dispensing out the product. The perforations are protected by an additional plastic cap to avoid any leakage. One needs to twist the base of the tube to push the product out through tiny perforations at the top. I am half sold when it comes to packaging from Benefit & this one is no exception. Not to forget it’s very user convenient packaging too & earns more brownie points here.
Like Benefit says-it’s a golden-pink liquid pearl luminizer. Basically it’s a light textured non greasy pink tinted base with iridescent gold pearl shimmers. The finish is gorgeous soft focused healthy dewy sheen sans being sparkly or glittery. The golden pearl adds much required warmth & I can see this equally rocked by duskier beauties for the same reason. A universally flattering highlighter. It blends in flawlessly into skin because of the lighter texture & would advise to moisturize skin properly in case of dry skin. Though it’s not drying but not hydrating either! Benefit describes it as a face luminizer where one can wear it on its own under or over foundation for adding that subtle dewy glow to the skin or can be used to highlight the higher planes of your face. I most of the times wear this alone over my moisturizer on dull skin days and it instantly awakens the skin making it look dewy & supple. I get a fantastic 8-9 hours wear with this used on its own or with base. The formula keeps the healthy look of the skin alive whole day without a single hiccup! A must have if you love illuminators & a dewy luminous complexion.
I had previously reviewed Benefit watts up which is a gorgeous warm Champagne highlighter & is denser than Girl Meets Pearl. The latter is quiet softer & subtle giving your skin a luminous glow. Its quiet difficult to go overboard with this one & it never gets heavy or greasy even with the build-up. But one requires a very tiny dollop per application and even though bearing a heavy price tag, a tube lasts for long. Another good option is to try the gift sets from benefit which are assortments of some of the best sellers from the brand where you get good quantity deluxe samples & get to try products in a decent budget price.
