I was really excited to try this product out as a few fellow bloggers have mentioned using this product and liking it. When I first went to use it I thought it was broken because it took 30+ clicks before any product came out onto the applicator. I'm not a huge fan of the packaging, even now after using it for about a week, it takes a lot of clicks to get any product out. The product itself is pretty good. It does reduce the look of puffy morning eyes, and brightenes up the eye area for a more awake, refreshed look. The formula has a pink tone to it which I think is just a little too light for my skin tone. I have olive skin and I feel that when used alone, this is too bright and it actually accentuates my under eye circles. I don't have bad under eye circles, I just bought this hoping to add a fresh touch to my makeup. I think it works best when applied under foundation or concealer as it just makes everything look more finished. The brightener is better suited for a fair complexion as opposed to a medium or dark skintone. So, would I repurchase it? No. I think I'll just stick to my Smashbox powder highlighter.
