I bought this during a sale, but it was still rather pricey in my country (equivalent to 11 USD). I mean, I wouldn't mind paying that amount if it actually worked, but it really didn't do anything for me. The first time I clicked the packaging, runny liquid came out so it might have separated in the packaging. After more twists, it did come out alright, but was dreadfully thick. I thought it was just me and I did think of returning it, but I've seen other reviews on youtube saying the same thing about it.

I hate the smell, reminds me of petrol oil.The product also tends to crease under my eyes. For the trouble, it doesn't really lighten anything, and I'm rather tan to begin with, very odd. I suppose it will brighten a tiny bit because it's a salmon colour, especially if you have dark undereyes.

My collection lasting perfection concealer works waaay better at a fraction of the price. Totally regret purchasing this.

I have this in 3 and it is a perfect match for my nc15 skin. This is quite a lot thicker than I expected and covered my dark circles pretty well. In addition it also didn't stay sticky and instead seemed to set to a soft matte finish.

I am very impressed with this concealer and it has already replaced several ones that I own. I used to use this years ago (back when it had a doefoot applicator) but the formulation has changed since then. Back then this was a lot thinner and easier to spread but it also was not marketed as a concealer but a highlighter/brightener.

I would really recommend trying this if you have slight to moderate dark circles as this covered mine very well and didn't settle into my lines.

I bought this based on reviews here and other blogs. Got a great deal on TBS website during a sale. This is a lightweight eye brightener in a peachy shade that matched my LOLA skin perfectly. Lasts all day and does not settle into fine lines due to its ultralight creamy texture. However, several years later, (& sleepless nights) I have moved onto concealers.

irst of all, i want to clear it to every Lady around that it is not a CONCEALER! Infact it is a highlighter, why would they name it ''Lightening Touch" if it really was a concealer, since concealer is used to hide imperfections. This product is used as a brightener around eyes and cheeks and i really liked it, it didn't melt at all as i've got a combination skin which sweats alot even in severe winters and it gave me that look i have been wanting. I blend it with my fingers! worth a try

Bought it at a good price at the Body Shop (<$12). But it doesn't show and it stings my under eye area. Looks better than having nothing on, but that's not enough reason to buy. And at my age, i am concerned when something stings my skin..

Better ones are clinique airbursh ($19.50) and if you can afford it, the very best is YSL touche eclat ($40).

got this during the black friday sale and I like it better than my mac select cover up as it doesnt cake on my under eyes. As a a shiftworker, it makes my under eye ara look brighter but doesnt totally camouflage it; which us fine by me as it looks natural that way. The packaging looks like ysl's touche eclat but for a fraction of a price! I dislike how it clicks more than you need though, would repurchase again if on sale (",)

I have mild under eye circle so this highlighter/light concealer worked so well on me, I don't need to use a seperate concealer prior to this. And I think it's a cheaper alternative to the YSL touché eclate. Will repurchase if its on sale.

This not a heavy concealer so don't be fooled. It's a highlighter for around the eyes and cheeks. Makes me look very dewy which I love. The only con is the rubbish pen thing you have to twist and push and hold your tongue to get it out and it's always way more than what you need.

This is 'ok'. I feel it does illuminate under the eyes, and the design is interesting, with a twist bottom and built in brush, but it also seems like you'll lose a lot of product when it 'runs out' that is just inside yet impossible to get out. It also separates into product and oil, I guess because I'm not using it enough? I don't know but it's not easy to mix back together. It covers ok, but so do many cheaper things. I ended up using most of it but throwing away what was left. It was just ok in my mind and the packaging was a good idea in theory but not so much in reality.
