this is highlighting but doesn't really make you glow. I had a smashbox rep tell me it would look better applied like a highlighter on my face. It also didn't help my concealer stay on longer - I think it may have made it crease/slip off
This is not a good primer at all. I had just been using benefit's porefessional and this does not compare. It isn't even that hydrating under my eyes. It is just a bad under-eye cream instead of a primer. Would not recommend.
pros and cons
some of the pros and cons are. this did make such a big difference to notice for me. the size sample was very generous.
I have a hard time with my under eyes since I have ALWAYS had dark under eye circles... this product works great as a base, and goes on smooth. It makes my concealor look flawless, and even looks great by itself. I will be buying again as soon as I run out!
I usually love Smashbox products, but I wasn't a fan for this one. Maybe it's just me but I never noticed a difference when I wore this. If anything I thought it darkened my eyes even more!
This was my first attempt at under eye products so maybe it's just me and my application process. Either way I'm disappointed and frustrated.
