I have been in search of an eye primer that also evens out the discoloration on my lids and crease so when I read the vast array of claims for this product, I was intrigued and excited:
"1st Ever Blurring CC Eye Cream. Instantly blurs wrinkles, fine lines, dark circles, crow's feet, puffiness, imperfections, crepey lids, sagging, uneven texture and signs of fatigue. Ultra-smoothing, multi-tasking miracle product can be used as an eye cream, primer, concealer and eye shadow base."
Because this product is brand new, it was hard to find. Finally found a tube at RiteAid after much searching and was pleasantly surprised to find an instant $3 off coupon on the box. After using it a few days, here is what I found:
Blurring Wrinkles and Fine Lines -- not really
Dark Circles -- slight reduction but not much
Crows Feet -- don't have them bad, so don't know
Imperfections/uneven texture-- slightly, but not as much as I need or want
Crepey Lids -- wouldn't know since my lids are still relatively smooth
Since my aim was to act as a concealor/primer around my eyelid area, the rest of the review is focused on that. As a primer, my shadows lasted longer than without a primer. Although I experienced no creasing, there was some fading at the end of the day (no more fading than the Milani primer). My eyeshadows applied very smoothly. I was pleased with how it performed as a primer but for half the price, the Milani primer works just as well.
As for helping to conceal my discolorations, it did not do as well. The formula is rather light and sheer so although it did "blur" the redness and discoloration, it was only reduced by a little bit ....maybe "blur" is the perfect word since there really wasn't a claim for the product to "eliminate" or "hide" imperfections. (but then again, is there anyone who wants to merely "blur" imperfections instead of just getting rid of them entirely. lol) Regardless, I still needed another product to even it out completely, which was defeating the whole purpose of purchasing it.
Another thing I noticed about this product was that it did not settle into my fine lines...probably due to its light and sheer formula.
I do want to also mention the packaging--which I found very odd. It has a doe-shape metal applicator which is totally impractical. It's too oddly shaped to comfortably squeeze a small amount out of the end to apply with your finger (there is no precision because of the very wide, flat end with a hole in the middle) and it does not spread evenly if applied directly to the eye area from the tube. I'm assuming the metal tip is more for the cooling effect (similar to the roller ball on the Garnier Anti-Dark Circle Eye Roller, which I do love) than as an applicator. Besides the applicator, I found that the tube is much larger than the amount of product so the tube was filled with mostly air (making it even more difficult to squeeze what little product was in the tube onto the tip of the applicator).
All in all, it does not seem to be a bad product even though it does not live up to its claims (this certainly isn't rare). If it wasn't for the discoloration that I am trying to cover up, and I didn't have as many imperfections to "blur", I may have considered it more to keep and use, despite the horrible packaging. As it is, I returned it.
