I'm on my second bottle of this and I can safely say it's my HG skincare item! I love the way it sinks into my skin so quickly and leaves it so smooth and hydrated without being sticky. The pump allows you to be more precise with how much product you need. I love the smell and the consistency. One complaint I have is the packaging. The shape is fine to start with but when it gets down to those last few scrapings all the product is lost in the corners of the bottle and around the neck. All in all, absolutely LOVE this and will continue to use for the time being.

I think the packaging on this is quite crude, not worth what I paid. However, the liner itself wasn't bad at first but soon dried up and dragged on my lids. It's not the blackest liner but I go over it with black eyeshadow anyway to seal everything in. This lasts like a dream! I have hooded eyes so eyeliner transferring is a nightmare but this held up quite well. An alternative use I have for it after it wasn't as fluid as it first was is an eyeshadow. I love smudging this on the outer corners to really intensify an eye look. I would consider repurchasing but only if I haven't found something better.
On the concealing side, this does what it says. It really brightened up by eyes but I don't think I would recommend it for anyone with oily lids because it creased like crazy on me no matter how lightly I applied it. Although powder over it makes it last considerably longer. The packaging is really cute and it it's so compact you can throw it in your purse. If it's left in a really warm area, it can get a little greasy feeling but too cold and it feels almost waxy. I bought this mainly to test as a primer but I think it's not any better than a regular (cheaper) concealer. Though I do like it for it's colour correction. Would I repurchase? No.
