Ok, it's true!
A bit goes a long way, but all the same I find it too pricey.
I bought nr 1 (lightest hue), it's a beautiful ivory hue.
The results I get with it are not good, though (unlike with the eclat miracle primer).
I mostly use it as primer for the undereye area, just to illluminate the look. If you need a concealer to cover dark circles or the like, forget about it! It's a highlighter, not a concealer and as such it doesn't cover. Its texture is too light.
I also use it to light up the inner eye corners and the upper outer lid. The color is fine, I like it, I also like the texture (look and feel), but somehow the finished effect doesn't satisfy me. It sounds like a paradox, but I find it at the same time dry and oily. I put it on, especially on the undereye area, and it sets in the lines/wrinkles making them more visible, sth which doesn't happen with other similar products. And my under eye area looks dry and not hydrated. After a while it kind of gets oily, especially on the lids, but the drying effect doesn't disappear.
In the end I can only use it in the inner corners of the eyes
or mixed with a moisturizer.
