I read the name for the first time my friend gave this to me and had no idea what to do with this product. I asked for a primer and she was a kind of that this can be used unless I found out that it’s supposed to be concealer to lighten your under eye area and parts of your face.Comes in three shades 01,03,04. I have o4 with me.

It comes in a silver tube packaging which is very cute.Theres a brush applicator on the top through which the product dispenses out and for that you need to twist the bottom of the tube. For the first time it takes a little time for the product to come out. You need to clean the brush applicator regularly about a gap of 2-3 days.
Well about the product: it’s a light concealer/highlighter which gives you a even coverage in undereyes and other areas of your face. If you have prominent dark circles then this product is not for you because it just gives you a very light coverage. Especially suited for those females who have very light patches in under eye areas or unless you are looking for a very natural look , without makeup kind of.
Its light formula dosen’t make you feel heavy at all and gives you a natural brightened up look. Coverage is light but buildable. Doesn’t crease. Easy to blend.
I mostly use it as a primer also. Just apply it on your eyes and dust baby powder on it .you are done.

What I Liked?
- Doesn’ make you feel heavy.
- Easy to blend.
- Gives you a natural bright glow.
- Coverage is buildable.
- Can be used to highlight different areas of face other than eyes.
What I Didn’t Liked?
- More of a highlighter than concealer, not suitable for people who have prominent dark circles and patches and those who need strong coverage.
- For first application takes some time to get into product with the twist pen.
My take on it as a Primer.
A good product for people who doesn’t have much darker dark circles and need very light coverage with natural finish and glow. I liked the brightening power of the product.
