Ooops – I nearly forgot to blog today!
Today’s product is Ooh La Lift. It’s a pink “under-eye brightening boost” which has already made its way into my makeup bag. Ok, makeup box. Ok, makeup basket…s. Makeup baskets.
So, we all know that green tinted concealer or foundation counteracts redness, right? Well, a pink tint is supposed to combat dark patches and even out skin tone so in theory a pink tinted concealer type product is perfect for the under eye area. That was the thinking behind this purchase when I last visited the Benefit counter.
Having used Stay Don’t Stray (yeah, I’m still banging on about that), I now wish I had chosen that instead, but this is good too!
It’s nice to apply (you can even keep it in the fridge if you want), doesn’t sit in my wrinkles like a product with a thicker consistency might and does reflect the light, giving the under eye area a little lift, so it does what it claims to do. However, my mini-gripe is that it’s just a little too thin. It doesn’t feel very substantial, do you know what I mean? I’ve had to apply a couple of layers (after foundation, of course) to achieve the sort of look I was going for and I HATE trowelling on makeup. It’s not my style.
Don’t get me wrong – I like it. If you’re looking for something to just give your eyes a bit of a boost then this will do the job. If, like me, you’re looking for something a little more heavy duty then perhaps Stay Don’t Stray would be better.
Amazability factor: 8/10 (great but not S.D.S. great!)
