Funny thing as much as I love some of their base makeup items for some odd reason I never tried out Benefit Ooh La Lift. How strange! After a reader requested a review I decided I should really try it as it sounds like something I’d love.
Find out what I thought after the jump!
My idea of Benefit Ooh La Lift was that it would it be somewhat like Trish McEvoy Eye Base Essentials. I was thinking it would be a dense, slightly dry base which would prep and prime my eye area for makeup. It promises to work much as Benefit Lemon Aid plus it promises to lighten and brighten the eye area up. See how easily it is to get excited about this? I love the idea of anything that will work at creating a smoother canvas for makeup plus brighten the area up erasing signs of fatigue.
Mmm doesn’t really work as well as I had hoped. I’m disappointed because as I mentioned I normally end up loving many of Benefit point items but this just fails to work for me. It’s a pale pink moisturizing cream, actually it kinda reminds me of Benefit Powderfladge in powder form.
The formula is one reason it doesn’t work so well. It’s moisturizing and very creamy but it lacks the pigmentation to work. The lack of pigmentation is one key reason I saw no results. Although quite a nice shade of pigment it doesn’t show up around the eye area. I also find the moisturizing formula a tad impractical since it’s a toss up between using this and concealer. Using this instead of concealer is not an option I can personally get away with and using this on top of concealer, if you attempt it, just creates a mess because of the wet, moisturizing formula.
Overall, it’s probably something that would be decent for younger eyes who don’t use concealer daily and just need a little pick me up for tired eyes. Personally I can’t say I’d recommend it for anyone who needs concealer to hide dark circles, fine lines, and just tiredness. This one was sadly a disappointment for me.
