Hello Beautiful Ladies,
Today, I will be writing about my first product from Benefit. I have always seen people praising Benefit products, and I always wanted to try them. In Delhi, they are easily available in Sephora, but I was not able to plan a Sephora trip. After a lot of planning, finally I was able to check out Sephora a few days ago and as it was a much-awaited trip, I bought many things. The product that I brought from Benefit is a corrector eyelid primer called Lemon-Aid. I have heard many great things about this product and I thought that I should not miss it.
The product comes in a small round black pan with “lemon-aid” written on the lid with yellow color. The packaging is sturdy, yet easy to open. It has an opaque black flip open cap. Inner section of the lid has a mirror which makes it even more convenient to use. No brush is provided with the product and the main reason for that can be – no brush is actually needed to apply it.
Wake up your eyelids! This warm yellow correcting cream helps to hide redness and discoloration with just a dab. In a snap, eyes look refreshed, frisky, and ready for fun. One shade blends to perfection on any complexion. Includes a mirror for freshening up on the go. No sponge necessary, the warmth of your fingertips makes blending easy.
My Take on Benefit Lemon Aid Color Correcting Eyelid Primer:
Lemon Aid, as the name suggests, is a lemon yellow colored product which is used as an eyelid primer. Primers are usually used to extend the staying power of the shadow, but this is a multifunctional product. Due to its yellow color, it successfully corrects all the discoloration of the eyelids. It makes the lids even colored and ready for shadow application. The product instantly brightens up the eyes and so can even be used without a shadow on top. The product can also be used as a concealer to hide redness and I have even tried it under my eyes. The product is not very efficient to hide the darkness under the eyes, but it does brighten up the area and make them appear better.
Its creamy consistency makes blending easy. I always apply the product with my finger tips as the warmth of my fingers makes the product to blend nicely. After complete blending, eyes look completely awakened. Now as it is a primer, I expected it to make my shadow look brighter and stay longer. The product does intensify the shadow color, but as far as the staying power is concerned, I am not very happy.
I bought this product with very high hopes, I was expecting a lot from this, and it was almost up to my expectations, but I thought it would not crease on my lids and would stay for around 7-8 hours, but unfortunately, the product creases on my lids after 2-3 hours and I have to blend it again using my finger, which reduces the color intensity and hence the staying power.

Cons of Benefit Lemon Aid Color Correcting Eyelid Primer:
