i love the colors and it lasts all day

it applies easy and lasts all day

- Ulta User



if you wear/ need a primer everyday it will run out quicklyshe liked the fact that it was good to use with eyeshadow, it stayed on for most of the day and colour did not end up in the creases of her eyelids, like had happened before

- Boots User

all of them literally crease so bad and crumble off even with the use of a primer

- Ulta User



i found the brush applicator left it looking streaky to blending with me finger but still not overally impressed i think there are cheaper alternatives

- Boots User

did not leave the eye area radiat looking - just as if another product had been applied aroudn the eye area - noticeable rather than concealed even after blending with foundation

Bright Eyes

I suffer from permanent dark circles under my eyes due to lack of sleep so anything that will improve the look of these is very welcome. I've tried a few eye brightening pens before with mixed results so I was interested to see how this one would measure up.The packaging is nice enough and easy to use. The brush is nice and soft so it doesn't feel like it's scratching my skin, and the product dispenses quite evenly onto the brush without making a mess.I apply a few dots of this around my eyes then blend it gently with a finger. The consistency is nice and smooth and it blends really easily. The colour looks quite dark when I first dot it onto my skin but it blends perfectly into my skin tone. It feels light on my skin and once it's on I can't feel it there at all.The brightener does seem to work quite well, making my dark circles look less obvious and having a general illuminating effect. A problem I tend to have with a lot of these types of products is that they're too shimmery and only exaggerate imperfections in my skin, but this one is perfect with just the right amount of shimmer to brighten my eyes and make me look a little more awake.Overall I am impressed with this product, it's definitely one of the best I've used and the price is very reasonable so I'd definitely buy this one again. « less userNovember 21, 2014

I'm not allergic! Yaaaaay!

I recently found out that I'm allergic to... um, everything. Seriously, if it's got lanolin, cocamidapropyl betaine, propylene glycol, methylisothiazolinone, or a number of other ingredients, I can't wear it. I lost hundreds of dollars in personal care products because most of them contained propylene glycol. Bare Minerals powders are, so far, safe. And so is this palette from Revlon, and their long-lasting lip stain/gloss.I now have Pop Art and Renaissance palettes from this line. I love Pop Art; it's surprisingly versatile for a green palette. You don't HAVE to use the super sparkly glitter accent, if you don't want to, which is nice; I'm not exactly a party girl, and there's plenty of sparkle in the regular palette without going full-on SPARKLY.Renaissance surprised me, as the main color is a much darker gray than I was expecting. Pretty, and it ended up working for my needs on that particular day, in the end. But be aware, this is less subtle gray, more CHECK ME OUT I'M GOTH.There is a lot of fallout during application on both palettes, but once applied, it stayed on nicely. I didn't notice much in the way of creasing. The first times I used it, I went without primer (Urban Decay, which is what I had and loved, has propylene glycol); I did OK. For Renaissance, I had acquired a Bare Essentials eyelid primer without PG; worked out very nicely, but I probably could've gotten by without it. « less userFebruary 28, 2012


The applicator on this product drives me crazy! The brush tip is a good idea, although you still have to blend it with your finger, but the rest of it is poorly designed. You twist the bottom up to push primer through the brush, however you twist a few times and nothing happens, twist again and far too much comes out.Applicator issues aside this is still a pretty uninspiring product. As an eye-primer it does it's job. It stops your lids from getting greasy and although it doesn't stop your eye shadow creasing it does hold the creases at bay for a good 6 hours or so. The texture is slightly drying and this makes it very difficult to blend in, and if you get any in your eyes prepare for them to sting and turn red--not ideal for a product designed for use around the eye area.However, this is also marketed as an "eye-brightener", and for that it's useless. The colour is a kind of bland grey/pink which does nothing to cover dark circles. This means I've been using mine with my usual under-eye concealer, and I've found that the drying texture of the primer makes it very difficult to apply my concealer over the top. Not really brilliant for an eye primer.For what it is it's a very expensive product, and there are much better (and sometimes cheaper) alternatives available. I wouldn't reccomend or buy again. « less userMarch 15, 2012


Works exactly the same as my other brand of eye brightener... but at a much cheaper price!I don't use it as an eye shadow primer as I have a creaseless product anyway, but I use it as a concealer for the bags under my eyes. And for this it works. Blends well with my usual foundation so no problems there.If you use or have used the gold pen variety, this is definitely worth a shot. At a snip of the price too! userApril 16, 2013


its an amazing product for its price, highly pigmented and great color payoff. i sometimes work 24 hours straight and it stays on! love it love it love it
