Personally I thought it was for the under eye area that has the
nerve to have blue veins showing-yellow neutralizes blue so it
definitely works - pat it on with a concealer brush and if you choose put a little powder over for hold.

This is a more chalky formula than a concealer would be. I tried it under my eyes, and it doesn't help cover my dark circles much at all. It's not close enough to a skin tone, and it's chalky consistency makes it pretty much impossible to blend with other products. It's great on eyelids, though.

thanks everyone. I went ahead and tried it myself for about a week after I bought the "confessions" pkge. Here are my subjective & unscientific thoughts: I find lemonaid and boing very drying, and although erase paste provides good coverage, in all, I prefer time balm for my dry and aging undereye area. I will use lemonaid on my eyelid, especially during the humid summer, and boing for the odd spots around the rest of my face, but not near my eyes.

I'm over 60, and I have to mix Lemon-Aid with "Boi-ing" concealer to make the product less drying. In the summer, I can use it with the concealer between my eyes but would hesitate to use it under my eyes without blending in more concealer (haven't tried it in the cooler months yet).

What I do is put foundation on first. I love this primer because its the best primer when you're in a hurry and aren't gonna put on a ton of makeup, but still want a little. So I recommend putting on your foundation, then this on your eyelids, then neutral eye shadows. (because the yellow tint affects the color of shadow, i wouldn't put this on under other shadows) This way It brightens up your eye area, but doesn't look bad or affect your eye shadow. :) xoxo

I've tried putting it on with a small, spongey brush but I feel it's better
applied with my finger. I also think it has to be applied very lightly,
not layered as it does crease. We have a tendency to think more is
better with concealer-type items like this, but a lighter touch produces
a more natural effect.

It can get a little bit cakey when you use your finger. I put on a good eye moisturizer on first and then use a concealer brush or my finger to dot around my eye and then blend it in with my fingers. That solves the drying issues that other people have had and also the caking, I hope that helps! (:

I found this to be very dry, which affects the amount of coverage. It was tough to make it look natural. Even if you put a dab of moisturizer on before, it just has a "stiff" consistency. I had high hopes for it, but I like the Laura Mercier concealer. I am oily to, and it didn't help it sink in. I think it would be too heavy for your beautiful eyelids.

YES! This is perfect for evening out the bluish tones or veins. It will leave you, honestly, with a light, smooth, blank "canvas." If your skin is fair enough, you can even just use a tiny bit of this alone. Or if you have more color, use a foundation or skin colored concealor over the top.

It will cover them (I also have very visible blue/purple veins around the top of my eyes), but it covers them in a very matte buttercup/chalky way. I did not personally like the results because it did not look natural, although if you are covering your lids with dark or dramatic makeup after the lemon aid, it would probably work great. I just prefer more neutral and subtle eye makeup so this product created too much of a dramatic contrast between it on my skin and my natural color for my taste. The best vein covering natural looking eye primer I found was F.Y.Eye by BeneFit (also available at Sephora)

I would not suggest this to use under your eyes unless you use a very, very light handed application. A little goes a long way because it tends to cake up. Its great for covering redness and it is not hard to blend, as long as you have a fair skin tone. I also found that unless I set this product with powder, it does move into the eyelid crease.

If you have redness under your eyes, trying the "Lemon-Aid." The yellow negates any redness. You may want to use a bit of flesh-toned concealer over it if necessary, but less is more. Using too many products under the eyes calls attention to imperfections.

I say you should just try Boi-ing it supposedly claims that it is for dark circles, unlike Lemon Aid, which is for your actual eyelids. I have not tried Boi-ing but I have heard great reviews for it. I own Lemon-Aid and I am not convinced that it can be used for dark circles since I used it once and it just creased and didn't look too attractive lol. But then again it specifically says it's for discoloration on the eyelids.

Lemon Aid vs. Nars, Too Faced ...?
How is the Lemon Aid primer compared to the Nars eyeshadow primer and Too Faced eye shadow primer? I'm leaning towards the Nars or the Too Faced at this point, but think that the Lemon Aid might be a better value?

This depends completely on the consistency you desire. This is a great concealer, but it is a bit heavy on eyelids. I could not love Too Faced's "Shadow Insurance" more. It is extremely lightweight; once it sets, it keeps shadows in place for more hours than I can stay awake! Too Faced is offering a trial set--I think you'll love it as well.

Lemon-Aid is different because it is not just an eyelid primer it is mostly a color correcting product.

Lemon Aid you'll get a better bang for your buck, because it's awesome for redness and under-eye circles, but if you're solely looking for an eye primer, go with Nars or UDPP. Good luck! xoxo

Lemon Aid is not a primer-it is used to conceal blue (veins or whatever else is blue) - a primer prepares your skin for make-up-
you would use this under or over your primer.

I've been using the TwoFaced primer for years, i decided to try this because of the color-correcting quality. It definitely does that, but as far as preventing creasing, it sucks! I had creases in my shadow within minutes of applying.

I LOVE the Too Faced Shadow Insurance, but I wouldn't really consider the Lemon-Aid a primer. It's too creamy. I use it as an under-eye concealer only. If you are looking for a new primer, I really think there's no reason to switch from Too Faced! Mine lasts FOREVER!

I think this is meant more for color correction than an eyeshadow base. It does help with the eyeshadow staying on, but I think you're better off buying urban decay eyeshadow base or any other eyeshadow base for a creaseless look.

The biggest reason why I chose this product was the fact that it is a multi -tasker. It neutralizes and primes the eye area . I also use it for lips,around the nose ,and the dark area between the eyes. I use it on any break outs I get and This product has never broken me out and that is a biggie to me because of my sensitive skin..
I have tried the Too faced before and it is a great product but does not multi task . As far as the Nars product goes , I was't too impressed . I love Nars but not their primer.
You don't need a whole lot of lemonade to work. I have had mine for almost a year ( Need a new one lol ) and have a lot of product still left over..

Alright, I would HIGHLY recommend the Too Faced Eye Shadow primer only because I despise the Lemon-Aid by Benefit. It does not do well as an eyelid primer because it creases like crazy. However, I have the Too Faced Eye Shadow Insurance (Primer) and I am in LOVE. It has NEVER creased on me and I use it all the time when I do eyeshadow looks. I have not tried the Nars but I'm sure it is the most expensive...Trust me, you can't go wrong with Too Faced Eye Shadow Insurance, it is absolutely amazing!
