The product is dispensed from the pen, onto the brush with an easy twist of the base, then you apply a small amount onto the eyelids right up to the eyebrows. I found this easier to do with my fingertips and then I carried on applying my usual eye make-up.
Without reading any product info, I decided to make some notes throughout the day and this is what I jotted down:
This is what Clarins say the beauty benefits are:
The invisible and lightweight texture gently evens and smoothes the eyelids, for easy make-up application and more youthful-looking eyes. Eye shadow colour is more beautiful, more intense and very long-lasting. For a flawless, long-wearing make-up result. Contains 3D pigments to promote a luminous, yet natural-looking veil on the eyelids.
As you can see, I agree completely with their claims that are underlined! When applied to the back of the hand you can see the light effect, but I didn't really notice the difference when on the eye, however I am sure it would be far more visible if you used alone "sans maquillage".
If you experience problems with eye make-up fading, creasing or generally not staying put, then this product is a must. I was under the belief that my eye colour was good for most of the day, but after using the Clarins Instant Light Eye Perfecting Base it made me realize, it wasn't, and unbeknownst to me it does fade and "move"...
Perfecting eye base can be used with or without make-up. It can also be used to enhance eye shadow but also as a highlighter. Its available in two shades 01 & 02 (I used 01) and as an added bonus - Instant Light Eye Perfecting Base is also a protective skin care thanks to Clarins Anti-Pollution Complex which protects the skin against free radicals and harmful environmental aggressions.
