UGHHH!! This is a nightmare to blend on my eyelids! I tried it with an eyeshadow brush and my ring finger and NOTHING would blend it out. The consistency is awful as well, a lot more drying than I expected. The problem I have is that every time I apply it to my eyelids, the glitter tends to cake up on one particular area on my eyelid and it just doesn't look even :(. I really wanted to like this product but it's really bad...
Moisturizers -DDF - Ultra Lite Oil-Free Moisturizing Dew

I REALLY wanted to love this product since it's by DDF, and DDF is known for their skincare line. I bought this at a discount price at one of my local Tj Maxx stores for only about $2 off. I was so excited about it that I read all the ingredients and everything! The next morning I decided to give this a go (since I wear another moisturizer @night). When I first rubbed it on to my face, it felt really fresh, its a gel consistency, so I did sort of a patting motion on my face afterwards to have it "set." I was really excited to go to school feeling like I had nothing on my face, BUT SADLY, this wishful thinking was long gone after the first hour or so... my face began oiling it up again, and it became "sticky." I tried convincing myself that I probably put it on wrong, so I kept trying to use smaller amounts, yet to no avail, it still made me oily within the next hour, and the worst part of all is the fact that it doesn't necessarily "moisturize." Such a bummer that this didn't work for me, and I have a feeling that this is what's breaking me out too..... such a disapointment :(

Honestly, I really wanted to love this product when I first purchased it. I got it during IMATS of last year and have yet to finish using it. First of all, it is EXTREMELY CREAMY, and at first I thought this would be great in moisturizing my under eyes, but i was so so so wrong! This creases like CRAZY!!! And when I mean crease, I mean like within 1 minute it settles into that line you have under your eyes, its so annnoying! However, as far as corrrecting the hideous blueish purplish color on my under eye it does an okay job, not a miracle or whatever though... :(. And the only way I found to make this STAY on my under eye is to layer it with a CRAP LOAD of powder. I wished this worked for me, but sadly I won't be repurchasing this again.
At first I bought this primer thinking that it would control my oily skin (WARNING: I am EXTREMELY oily), but unfortunately it didn't. Every time I pump a bit of this onto my fingers to spread onto my face it feels really soft, BUT I feel like it doesn't really "spread" all over my face. The worst part is that, after putting some of the product on my face, I looked at my two fingers that I just used and there is STILL primer on my fingers!!! And it was basically STUCK to my fingers in this weird texture and if i try to get the product off my finger and onto my skin, I felt that the whole primer that was supposedly already "on" my face would just rub off completely.... UGHH!! And as far as a foundation primer is supposed to be, this DID NOT help keep my MUFE HD foundation on longer or whatever AT ALL!!!

This product i decided to try out was semmingly fine in the first 30 mintues for me. Then after, an hour or so it started to get cakey. I tried to cover up some blemishes i had which were very few and then it would get oily on my face as well, as the day went by you would need to re-apply because it would wear out fast. Although i must say, it was quite "water-proof", but still i wouldn't buy this product again.
