What are your thoughts on this product?

I think it's one of the most overrated things I've ever bought.
Unless I'm using it wrong?

It definitely can't be used as a concealer can it? It just look weird!
As a highlight it looks dull and pointless.

What exactly is it for??

I hate the amount of money I've wasted on make up I don't use 🙈

Also wait a couple of weeks and it will smell off.

I persevered with them when they first came out but gave up in the end.

I didn’t get the hype either.

I can only imagine it came out at a time where there weren’t really any other highlighters on the market. It was a bit of a 90s must have wasn’t it?

It’s also very reflective in flash photos. I remember seeing paparazzi pics of celebs with tons of it under their eyes way back when.

George Michael (❤️) and Geri Halliwell were partial to it.

Yes I'm not a fan either.

The Georgio Armani precision concealer is much better.

I can't use it as I get big scabby areas under my eyes when I do. Bit like eczema - apparently it happens to people quite a lot. Never had any other allergies or skin reactions!

Used it a few years ago and didn’t like it as I thought it was drying. Tried a few others in between and came back to it. I absolutely love it now. Seems less dry/cakey and looks fab in pics. I am in my 40s and have fine lines and I find it doesn’t sit in the lines.

@Milomonster what do you use it as? Concealer? Highlight?

I thought it was shit too.

It's for's a reflector. So, if you want to disguise eye bags, put it on the area just below the eye bags.

Or just bin it, which is what I did.

It's not a concealer, no. It's not a highlighter either, it's a light reflector.

You add on top of matte foundation and concealer to add some light to the face. I put it down the centre of the face (between eyebrows, centre of nose, centre of chin, cupids bow) a dot under the eyes and in the inner corner of eyes (the sunken bit either side of the bridge of the nose) and along the top of the cheekbones.

It's a no-makeup look as an alternative to the glittery shimmery highlight trend. Just makes you look a bit healthy and glowy.

Agree with Spanish. It’s not a concealer. I have dark circles and have to make sure not to go too heavy as it makes them look grey. In pics, the light reflecting properties make me look as if I have no dark circles at all though - it’s quite fab. It definitely makes a difference to my make up but in a subtle and soft way. The key is to not to overdo it and to get the correct shade (they have 3 I think).

I bought some about 15 years ago, and was made to have an appointment to teach me how to apply it.
