Benefit Cosmetics and Marvel Comics team up with a beauty superhero
The comic book world can be a bit of a boys' club, with strong female characters in the minority. But it's about to get girlie at Comic Con if Spy Gal has anything to do with it. Benefit Cosmetics and Marvel comics have teamed up to create a beautiful adventure. The very first beauty-inspired comic crimefighter ever, it's hinted that Spy Gal's origin story is literally born out of Benefit's latest product, the new POREfessional primer. Her stealth communicator is a powder compact, a lipstick camera, mascara laser and an X-ray eyeshadow case. You can check out the comic here!
There's even a series of videos Benefit is doing featuring SpyGal that highlight the benefits of the POREfessional primer. For Benefit's purposes, SpyGal seems to travel the world giving makeovers. But it seems like the Marvel Comic contains a lot more action - the debut issue was written and sketched by the brains behind Captain America and X-Men.
The POREfessional Primer is a pro balm designed to minimize the appearance of pores. The translucent, oil-free formula can be used alone, over or under makeup. It also contains a Vitamin E derivative known to protect skin from free radicals.
