My Holy Grail Product: Benefit Lemon Aid

So we all have that Holy Grail Product. You know that one that if you run out of, you won't be able to get to the store fast enough to replenish? For some it's a higher end product, that special splurge or holiday gift, for others it is as simple as a favorite discount nail polish in an awesome shade.

My own personal Holy Grail, I-will-cry-when-it's-all-gone product is Benefit's Lemon Aid. For those who are not familiar with this product, its an eye primer with yellow corrective tint to cover any redness on your eyelid. It's tacky, its thick enough to cover but not make you look dead, easy to wash off, yet stays on all day. A little goes a long way with this product, and the best way to apply would be with your fingertips so the heat melts it into your eyelid. I have had the same container of this product for about three years, and have still at least half of it left (although for the last 3 months I have started to really use it daily). It does not crease on me, and really does last through LONG days at work and in class. You can wear it with or without makeup, and if you chose to go without the makeup, this primer just brightens the eye area making it look like your wide awake.

The only downside to this product is that it retails for $20. I suppose that's not REALLY a lot in comparison to other high end primers and for the quality, but it's still a product that I'm letting family members know that I'd like to get. The newer product has a new label design but hey, it's still the amount of product!! A lot of revamps of products skimp a little to make a cool design or new package, but not Benefit it's the same size. So while this doesn't really run under the "drugstore finds", the amount of money spent on this really shows its worth with each application :)
Happy Shopping!
