Benefit Lemon Aid

I love the name of this product* and I love the actually product too – the reason? It does exactly what it says. It is a yellow based cream to help cover up redness of your eyelids. Normally we would be trying to cover up our under eyes but this helps with covering up eyelids instead!



It comes in a small yellow square box and when you take it out the box it's a small compact with a mirror which is handy if you need to use it on the go or for travelling. I have quite a light skin tone and find that this is okay on my tone, but I do think if you have darker skin it would also look good too. I found that it didn't crease and by the end of the day I could still see that it was covering any redness, but I did fade throughout the day.


After doing my face makeup I notice that sometimes my eyelids look a little veiny and red, but a little dab of this makes  my eyes a lot brighter and appear more awake, but it also covers those pesky veins. I used my finger to dab this on, but I think it would be tricky to use a brush to apply this product. Lemon aid has a thick creamy texture to it and I find it works best if you warm it up on your fingers first and then apply it. I would really recommend this to anyone who wants to make their eyelids brighter.


At the moment Unineed are having a sale and this would normally cost £16.50 but its in the sale for £11.99, click here to have a look.
