I came across a tube of this at Winners and I decided to get it based on the MUA reviews.
The texture is definitely 'interesting' and it didn't apply all that well on my skin. I used it under my eyes and around the mouth area (where the 'marionette' lines form) and I had difficulty blending it.
My concealer didn't apply smoothly and this primer seemed to make it streak. Plus I didn't really notice much of a difference in softening of the lines.
The worst part was it made me break out around the mouth area. I have hormonal acne so this made it worse.
At least it didn't cost me a fortune. This is one product where YMMV.
There are expensive products that promise to refine wrinkle, that maybe work, but at really high prices. This simply-easy-to-use product, it really does his work (off course just temporarily) but for all girls that have a problematic under-eye area, that's really a great primer: help to set the concealer, that really doesn't crease, or give you the "cakey" look, and obviously... refine (a little) wrinkle.
At 4 euros, that's definitely a product that will never miss from my make up case, and i'm pretty skeptical about elf products. (I'm 35 years old, light skin, with not much wrinkles, but with terrible, terrible, TERRIBLE dark circle).
EDIT: after finishing the bottle i must say that i won't repurchase the product: it tends to make my under eye area dryer whit the time. So sad, i was amazed by this product.
I used this for my under-eye where I have quite a few little lines I have tried putting this there and it does nothing but who knows it might work on areas that are a little less cramped.
It does dry quickly so that nice just know that it doesn't seem to work every where.
This doesn't seem to make a difference for me. I am still tinkering with it, trying to see the results some other reviewers are seeing. I have not used it under my eyes, just on my forehead and the one (one!) nasolabial wrinkle.
The applicator gets "clogged" easily.
Really does work temporarily (i.e., within the next 5-6 hrs) fill in wrinkles and smooth out the skin. I don't use it on my wrinkles but on my cheek line, which is a weird skin indentation running below the eye bags onto my cheeks. It honestly is the FIRST functional product that doesn't cost a fortune. The application itself is horrible, the formula dries and flakes upon rubbing; however these are small things I can over-look, as for me there currently is no other substitute. For people who are having trouble getting foundation/powder to sit on top of it, I would try to use a primer between the two layers. I'd definitely buy again simply because it works for me.
I LOVE THIS STUFF !!! It comes in a little twist up tube with a silicone applicator. I swipe it over my lines between my brows and my nose to mouth lines (thanks for the inheritance dad!!) and gently pat in. Give it 2 minutes to dry, then apply my usual primer over the rest of my face followed by my foundation. The lines between my eyes are practically gone, and the nose to mouth lines CONSIDERABLY softer and blurred. Will buy back ups and will panic if they ever discontinue this. And the icing on the cake? It costs a measly £3.50. Seriously. I have paid over £40 for line and wrinkle reducing lotions and potions that couldn't hold a candle to this stuff. The new HG love of my life <3 xxx
This product is amaaazing it actually does fill in wrinkles and maskes your skin uniformly even. This acts like a plumper, it tingles slightly but it acts like a temporary filler smoothing the skin. :)
This product is phenomenal!
Despite being quite young (29) I am very fair, and have a lot of crows feet and wrinkles under my eyes which I have had since I was 25. They bother me greatly. I have tried very expensive treatments, and inexpensive treatments to diminish them to no avail.
I put this on and immediately my wrinkles appeared to disappear! I understand this is not a "treatment" and will not make them go away permenantly, but this product literally makes the wrinkles look like they have disappeared. NOTHING has ever come close to this. I am beyond pleased.
The product feels light (like a silicone primer) and fills in the wrinkles perfectly (I am not exaggerating - my wrinkles are uniform and flush with the rest of my skin). There may be a slight issue with pilling, so I would suggest diligently patting this product and any concealer you put on top in very well.
I cannot say enough about this product. The best part is I purchased it for only $6!
If you are like me and self conscious about under eye wrinkles I wholeheartedly recommend this product. In the event it does not work you have only lost $6 (as opposed to the $90+ I have spent in the past). This is the best cosmetic item I have ever used.
Love, love, love this product. I truly cannot say enough about this god send of a product.
I use this for my puffy eyes and I can see difference, they look less tired.I don't expect miracles from any product so I am 100% satisfied with this!
This is the most cheap primer I've bought and its the best one! It's only $6,00!!!
I usually use it for parties and nighty makeups. It hold the makeup longer and leaves the face baby's ass smooth. It's great for applying high cover foundation.
