The Verdict:
This is a base/primer that also balances color and covers dark spots- to a degree. It does not completely hide my puffy circles but it does make them less obvious which not much else will do.You can wear under make-up, as concealer, or as foundation itself although it won't stay as long. I would buy again if I could find it for less than $15.
Buy again? Yes.

I bought this for about $12 online which is less than half of retail. This is meant to be used as a base/primer with the added benefit of covering dark spots and uneven color. However, it can be used as a concealer for uneven colored areas, or under eye circles. If yours are as dark and puffy as mine, it won't fix it, but it will make it a bit less noticeable. Lastly, it can be used alone, as a foundation itself, although it has less staying power that way. I would recommend at least a light layer of BB or CC. This does a great job of evening out skin. I still prefer the spray foundation but this is another great option or can be paired with that.
The squeeze bottle could have a thinner tip, but it doesn't spill or burst out. It is decently sized for portability. It has no scent. It can feel slightly slippery and may not last too long alone. It is orange but blends to skin color easily. Overall a must have in my make-up bag.
4.5 Stars, it would be 5 if it stayed on skin longer without sliding off.
