Bare with me, I had a genius idea yesterday to revamp this blog yet again and post every Monday- Friday. Each day will have a themed post. Tuesdays are all about first impressions and it fits in perfectly now that I bought Benefit's Beauty Advent Calendar just the other day. It's about the 12 days of Christmas this year, and I'll be opening one gift every other day. The first day has Ooh La Lift, their under-eye concealer, in it.
Let's start with packaging, very simple and sleek. The pink color intrigues me. It's not pictured, but it has a doe-foot applicator and it holds the perfect amount of product in it.
At first swatch, the lighting looks shimmery but it's not. It has a pink tint which I figure is to help erase any blue undertones and it feels slightly sticky until it's completely settled.
As for trying it out...I was let down. It barely highlighted anything. I thought maybe it needed to sink in a bit, but yet it still wasn't as powerful as my other highlighting concealers. I thought maybe it's because I put it on without any foundation, but regardless it should have done something...
Maybe I'll get on with it later but for a first impression, it's not something I'm wowed about.
