I bought this eye base as I have darkish and oily eyelids and thought it may help both problems (lighten them up and help eyeshadow last longer)
At first, the result (as long as you don't apply too thickly) was quite good and did make me look wide awake but over time I felt it creased fairly quickly and after a few hours made my eyes feel very tired (As if the product irritated in some way)
I did try it as a base for concealer as I have dark circles and enjoy multi tasking products, but the result was too horrible to try again as it made the circles look ashen and I resembled a bride of Dracula, so with its comrade "Boing" this product resides at the bottom of my large make up bag
This product was too thick for me. For something that is applied to such a delicate area, I would want the consistency to be lighter and smoother.
The first couple of times you use this it can be hard to blend. However i really like this product and after using it for a month or so, i know have the application sorted! It's a great product for neutralising blemished / red areas on eyelids, as the yellow colour provides a neutral base for either wearing alone or with eye shadow. It's probably not that good if you're simply looking for a primer as it can be hard to apply.
i really should have listened to the reviews with this.but its just been one of those products ive been so curious to try, since, well forever but never got round to it! well i finally caved in and bought it, oh what a waste of time and money doing that! On the lids, no matter how lightly i apply this it creases up within 30 SECONDS. secondly it makes me look like i have (quite bright) lemon e/s on....not a look that suits me at all! I finally tried it as a concealer and i think this was the best purpose of it, however it didnt do much then either. creased (although not as badly as on my lids) and kinda gave me that 'reverse panda' look- bright white under eye look, im quite fair as it is, and it was just too bright. im so angry for buying this, i KNEW deep down this was just one of those gimmicky benefit products!!
Hmm. This one's a mystery to me. It doesn't work well for me, though I can tell it's a very high-quality product. Lemon Aid creases and smears all over my eyelids. Then again, EVERYTHING creases and smears all over my eyelids, so I don't really think that's a fault of the product. I think it's the perfect shade of yellow, and I really wish I could use it successfully. If I could find a way to keep my eyelids from being the absolute greasiest part of my face, this would be the first thing I'd put on them; really, I'd love to use it. Until then, Lemon Aid will, sadly, gather dust on my makeup table.
This product is so hard to blend, i always feel like i'm wrinkling my eyes. The color is too bright for me,it doesnt look that natural and it just sits there. it doesn't do a good job holding colours. I think foundation does a better job. I havent' tried it underneat the eyes yet, but i'm scared because the skin around there is so delicate, it's not safe. Overall, i'm pretty disapointed with this product.
Pleasantly surprised with this ... have been disappointed with most of the BeneFit items I've tried, but I really like the way this brightens my undereye area [PLEASE - don't write to correct me, I know it's not meant as concealer rather an eyelid product -- but, hey, it works for me the way I use it, okay!!]. I do use a concealer (MaryKay is still the HG for coverage in a concealer), and then dab a light layer on top to brighten with my pinky (don't have the "blend" issue talked about in other reviews if you "dab" ;) )... I also use it to hide any reddish undertones, as well as directly above my brows as a highlight -- works very nicely in all these areas and sets very well with loose powder. Thanks for redeeming yourself, Bene ... :o )
Not thrilled at all with this product. I love Benefit, they usually have some great stuff but this is probably the worst I've tried. It's hard to blend & settled into the creases of my eyelid & within a few hours my eyes looked awful. I kept trying different ways to apply but nothing worked, I ended up with the same effect no matter what I tried. I've given up...$18 down the drain.
This is absolutely fantastic either by itself on your eyelids or as a base for more eye make-up. Alone, it evens out the tone of the eyelid area and makes your eyes pop without looking like you have anything on at all. As a base, it makes anything go on smoother and last longer, but it really grabs glittery and shimmery eye products and makes them stay all night long (or all day long, if you're wearing glitter during the daytime which you shouldn't). This makes a great gift. I would pass it out in freshman orientation in dorms around the world if I were queen.
The first time I used this product, I reall liked it. It did exactly what it's supposed to....lighted up my eyelids and gave me a brighter look. But after a few days of using it, I realized that it doesn't last that long and by the end of the day, my eyelids looked as if I had never even applied the Lemon-Aid. Plus, it's a little difficult to blend. I hate using my fingers to apply makeup so I used a concealer brush but I never really felt like I got it blended in all the way. So, all in all, not a horrible product, but I won't buy it again.
