I thought I'd take a break from doing manicures and the only yellow thing that I could think of is one of my concealer/primers from my Benefit Concealer Kit, as part of my Benefit Cosmetics haul earlier this month. It's called Lemon Aid. Cute name!
I'd let the book do the talking, but it's pretty much a concealer and primer in one! It helps even out the discolouration on your eyelids and also doubles up as an eyeshadow primer.
There's a cute little brush included in the kit. It's got synthetic hairs. I use the brush to apply it to my eyelid and then use my clean finger to blend it out.
It was pretty hard swatching this since I have such light skin, but I tried my best to capture it. Left is with the brush, right swatch is blended with my finger.
When I wake up in the mornings, this is what my eye area looks like, pretty uneven colour, more oily on my eyelids. Using the Lemon Aid concealer, it not only helps even out my eyelid colour, it also brightens up the whole area.
In a way, I guess this is kind of like MAC's paint pots, it's got the creamy texture that sticks to your eyelids, creating the perfect base for eyeshadows, or you can leave it just like that, simple, yet refreshed.
Here's how it looks like on my eye, without, with the primer, and all blended out.
In terms of a primer, you can see here that it's a pretty good base. I'm using Urban Decay's eyeshadow in YDK from the Naked 2 Palette. Left is without primer, and right is obviously, with.
I'm really glad I got to try this out in the Concealer kit, although I'm not sure if I'll be purchasing the full size, just because usually I use my foundation to even out my skin tone and around my eye area too. Also adding the fact that I don't play around with eyeshadows as much as I would love to, so I think this little sample size will go a long way for me for a while :)
