I didn't like High Beam, it was too peachy and just didn't work for me. This, on the other hand, I use every day. The applicator is perfectly sized, the product goes on perfectly and is a much better product in my opinion.

This goes on under concealor. Ooh la Lift goes on over concealor, as a brightener mid-day after your makeup has started to wear off and needs a lift. Both are good products, but used at different times.

out of the three products oh la la lift has the most "colour correcting" capabilities. it brightens and lightens bluish or purple dark circles. also giving the eye the illusion of lift.
its not the same as this product or highbeam which are basically just illuminators and combat dullness and sallowness of the skin without sparkles- they dont have any concealing properties)
I wouldnt purchase this if you already have highbeam highlighter, they are extremely similar products (just different colours) high beam is pink. undereye op is peach/nude.
have you tried mixing a little drop of high beam with concealer on the back of your hand and apply it on the under eye? that might give a boost to your concealer.
but if your still having issues..i use a general brightening concealer pen. they are so portable and easy to use (there are tons out there all different price ranges from sephoras to clinques) they can be pretty universal and effective in covering and brightening undereye problems (and blemishes) in one product
I hope this helps

Totally keep using Ooh La Lift. I use both. The Smashbox brightener is superior to Highbeam, in my opinion, maybe because of a difference in consistency or something, esp. in terms of looking sheer and natural -- gives a fresher appearance -- but Smashbox brightenwe does NOT provide actual undereye-circle minimization or lift. Just very pretty camouflage and light refraction that I've come to love in only a couple weeks!

I use Ooh La Lift directly under the eye as it does have some lifting properties. Use this as a highlighter only.

I have some experience with these beauty products so I thought I'd tell you what I think. Oh la lift didn't really do anything for me. Instead, before I put on my eye makeup, I use Benefit's de-puffing action eye gel, because even if you're not prone to puffiness, it makes eyes look very alert. I use Smashbox photo-op under-eye brightner under my eyes and on my lids for my everyday look. Benefit's High Beam gives a glow that is dazzling, but not shy, so for special occasions I use it on my lids and my cheekbones. However, on such special occasions I still use Smashbox photo-op undereye brightner for the area under my eyes because that isn't an area that I want to call as much attention to. Hope this helps--and if you want more details, I have written reviews for Smashbox undereye brightner and Benefit de-puffing action eye gel and they're posted under the name "artemisgem." Happy beauty hunting!

don't know these other products. I have dark circles, sometimes bags, sometimes puffiness, sometimes creases; I'm 56 and it absolutely works on my fair skin. Since Sephora has a generous return policy, I'd try it and see, or if you can stop in the store, use a demo.

Oolala Lift was the next product I used. It's better, but I still have to use a light concealer. Really would like to find one (Boots hightlighter is awesome!) that is all in one. Actually, Artistry has a pretty good one, but I still like Boots, best.

your ooh la lift should be fine. put a little concealer after your ooh la lift sets.
