SpyGal is a comic book hero inspired by a hero SKU at Benefit Cosmetics.
SpyGal’s “wise-cracking, pore-zapping persona” was modeled after POREfessional pore minimizing primer—which has tallied more than one million units sold worldwide for the San Francisco-based beauty brand.
The SKU’s packaging evokes a vintage female action figure complete with a pore-zapping ray gun and touch-up pro case.
“The superpowers of our bestselling pore minimizer, the POREfessional, created such an international sensation, we knew it was destined for greatness,” explained Julie Bell, EVP global marketing at Benefit Cosmetics. “Marvel, the world’s top storytellers, helped us bring our action hero SpyGal to life in the first ever beauty-inspired comic book.”
Marvel and Benefit tapped writer James Asmus and artist Phil Noto to bring SpyGal to life in her collectors’ item debut comic book.
