Tuesday, October 5th, 2010

Smashbox Photo Op Under Eye BrightenerPhoto Op Under Eye Brightener by Smashbox is devised to moisturize and brighten ready for concealer application.

The formula comes in a tube with a brush applicator, similar to a lip gloss applicator.

It helps to fight the ongoing battle most of us have with dark circles under our eyes with ingredients like vitamin C, red wine extract and peptides.

Smashbox have also added marine collagen to help fill fine lines and wrinkles from under the eye area.

This sounds like a good product that will give your eyes a little boost on those early mornings, so you can look awake even if you don't feel it. Well that it what its designed to do but does it actually work?

To Sum Up

There was mixed reviews with this under eye brightener with some patrons happy with the dark circle coverage. While others found it too shimmery and didn't think it made any difference to their under eye area.

Some users thought that at $18 it is slightly lavishly priced considering they found it more shimmery than effective. However, it did work for some patrons, so might be worth a try if you don't mind paying the high price tag.
