LAME. This does absolutely nothing to dark circles, or any skin actually. It probably doesn't help that this is actually a bit darker than my natural skin colour, so brightening was out of the question - and the formula is so thin and watery that it gives little to no coverage anyway. I like some other Revlon things, but not this. POOR.
I just picked this stuff up to put on under my concealer. I brighten up my undereyes (in a triangle surrounding my nose and then cover it with concealer. It seems to last ALL day. I didn't expect it to last so long, but when I went to take my makeup off 14 hours later, it was still looking beautiful. It gets rid of my dark undereyes (or helps at least since I wear it under my concealer) but it works better than when I use my concealer alone (I use Hard Candy Glamoflauge). I haven't used it too much as a highlighter but it would be great for that as well. Overall I am impressed and I will probably repurchase. One thing I didn't like was the applicator, but the consistency is a little liquid-like so I don't know how else they could package this without making it have a messier application. overall, good find!
I'm really surprised about all the negative reviews here and I feel bad that not everybody got the same great results I have been getting from this product. Oh well, different body chemistry...
First off, I think Revlon has come a long way since I was a teenager and has made a lot of improvements to their products. I don't normally buy drugstore brands simply because the vast majority of them test on animals and Revlon is one of the very few that doesn't, so I like to keep them in my rotation.
Their Photoready line has been nothing but good to me so far and the eye brightening/primer has not let me down. I love the color and consistency and the way it goes on thing and smooth and dries fast. I am pale with pink eyelids and this evens out my coloring so I can wear it alone, and works great as a primer under my shadow. I have not creased yet!
My only complaint, and it's kind of big, is that I just hate the twist up clicky applicator. I can't maneuver it with one hand, and can't control how much product comes out, so I know I'm wasting a lot of product. It would be perfect with UDPPs new packaging of the squeezey tube.
But since this has worked well and made me happy, I will buy this again.
This products is good.It's nothing too amazing or wondeful!
Eye Primer:CREASES LIKE CRAZYYYYYYYY! It would be a great base.But if you don't like several layers of creaseness on your lids,then wear an eye primer underneath!
Brightener:AAAAMMMMMAAAAAZZZZZZINNNNGGGG! This brightens up my whole face and under eye circles! I wear glasses so shadows are cast on my eyes! This product also provides a light coverage! Perfect as a brightener!
I love this product as a brightener.I will not repurchase though because I really wanted it to work as an eye primer. ):
I really, really wanted to like this. I love most Revlon products, and I think the Photoready line is great. I even like the Photoready face primer. This, though, just didn't work for me. The packaging is okay, the application is simple, the product just doesn't do what it says it will. It didn't brighten or prime my eyes at all. It's much too dark to be any kind of brightener, and my eyeshadow creased a couple of hours after I applied my eyeshadow, which is earlier than mine normally does. It's also around $12, which is kind of expensive for a drugstore product, especially one that doesn't work. Major disappointment.
I thought this would work way better then it does. I put it under my eyes and on the lids. It works horribly as a primer. it creases with my under eyes so bad. And I don't notice any difference with my shadows staying on longer. The only thing I like about it is the color. It does give a bit of a brightening effect. Oh and I hate the applicator I can't stand twisty tips.
I expected a lot from this primer, but it didn't do anything for my eyeshadow. It acted as if I never even put the primer on in the first place. The only thing I like about the primer is the packaging. I love how you twist the bottom and the product comes out from a brush. I wouldn't buy it again though.
This primer is average quality. I got it because it was 40% off. Previously, I used the cheap $3 elf primer, which actually worked very well for me. This primer is also a brightener, so it goes it a bit shimmery. I don't notice that because I put shadow and liner over it. It performs for a few hours, but definitely does not last all day. With the elf primer, my liner will be smudge free for the whole day, till I take this off. With this one, I noticed by that 2-3pm, my liner starts to travel. Also, I don't like the packaging. It's the kind where you twist the end, and the primer comes out of a little brush. It's very hard to control how much product will come out. The first time when I opened it, I had to twist about 5-6 times, and a lot of product gushed out. Now, I just try to twist a half twist, and sometimes, nothing comes out, and sometimes way too much product will come out. So I do feel the design makes it easy to waste product. I won't purchase this again, and would rather go back to my $3 elf primer.
I don't think this product really did anything for me. Granted, it did help my eye makeup stay on for about 3 hours no problem, but after that I noticed my makeup was creasing and smudging anyway.
I'm using this product as a highlighter now and it works amazingly well. top of cheekbones, the bridge of the nose, under the brows, inner corner of eyes. The pen-like packaging allows me to throw it in my bag for touchups during the day (although the staying ability is pretty well and I rarely, if ever, need a touch up)
I picked this primer up on a whim. It works great on as a concealer for the dark circles but the primer factor wasn't as good as i expected. my eyeliner did stay on longer than usual but it still smudges quicker than i expected. I bought this for around 15 USD and I'd rather pay 3USD more for a too faced eye primer.
