Love that it's:
My eyes are dark & seen this & though I'd try it& I'm so glad I did, brightens your eyes,it's easy to blend & makes a big difference to my dark eyes & makes my make up look better.
Also use this on my friend at work & she also though it was really good for her too.
I absolutely love this product. It gives a perfect base to be make up free or to apply colour.
I've bought and used this product for YEARS. It's honestly the only thing that has ever covered up my dark circles without looking like I had crazy eyes. It goes mixes great with the Play Sticks that I use on top, I find its the perfect combo.
This product is so underrated, I'm surprised its not one of the top sellers! It never creases or cakes and blends nicely. When I can't be bothered with eyeshadow, it's perfect to wear alone. I've got an eyeshadow palette that's really unreliable (not from benefit) but when I use this as a primer even those shadows stay on all day!
This was one of the first Benefit products I owned, having stumbled across the brand in Australia on a holiday 10-11 years ago.
It was a staple product I used ever single day without fail. As a base or alone on my kids it never creased and held up shadows all day long and never let me down.
Unfortunately the most recent time I purchased this, the product seems to have changed. It's a little greasy, is creasing and making my eye shadows slide right off so it's been removed from my go to makeup bag and shoved into the depths of the makeup drawer where less loved products go to die :(
I'm not sure if there was a bad batch or the formula changed so maybe in my next visit past a benefit shop on a holiday overseas I'll have a play and see, maybe we can pick our love affair back up again.
I was excited to try this product, but my eyeshadow was creased after just an hour.
I had my lemon aid for about a month. I love the product, but the case is made out of flimsy material and started cracking at the hinge. Within a week of the crack-beginning, the plastic around the hinge had disintegrated. This makes the lemon aid much less mobile!!
What a great idea! Lemon-Aid conceals the purple/blue shades on your eyelids and evens out the eye area skin tone completely! After years of staring at myself in the mirror wishing there was a solution to my drab tired eyes, it was available the whole time...and I had no idea! Lemon-Aid can be worn underneath eye makeup to give it extra hold, or can be worn on its own to enhance the natural you - minus the tired peepers and red/blue veins. So when you want to bring out your natural beauty Lemon-Aid is highly recommended.
I am a fair skinned Asian and got this as part of the Confession kit. I use it for my under eye area to hide the dark circles instead of on the eye lids. It worked like magic. My eyes instantly look bright and 'clean'. Now I can't leave home without putting it on.
I have medium skin tone with olive undertones. My eyes are always dark underneath and my lids are even darker. I was shopping for concealer, but the Benefit rep was in Ulta and showed me how to use Lemon Aid to take care of the darkness around my eyes and some spots on my face. When I'm zipping out the door, I can just use the Lemon Aid. If I want a more polished look, I use the hydrating Fake Up concealer. Alone, or in combination, Lemon Aid color corrects my issues. Very happy!
I was going after concealer. And I do tend to have a little red to my face (cheeks, nose) so the lady at the make up counter suggested this instead of the other concealers by Benefit. I was a little skeptical, but bought it after she demonstrated how it evened out my skin tone.
As for concealing some freckles it works great. Blends perfectly with my Benefit foundation. So now, I use it on my eyes AND my face (not all over, just in certain areas) :-)
Ok... I know, I know!! It says eyeLID primer.... BUT this makes an AMAZING undereye concealer for purple/dark circles. Im an esthetician and makeup artist, and this stuff is the BOMB! Makeup Artists have tried to sell me that orangey pink undereye concealer... nope, just a mess!!! My circles are BEYOND dark and purple (people have asked if I ran into something...) When I first used this stuff with bo-ing under my eyes, people for the first time in my life (I'm 31) asked what I did because my circles were gone! I've been using 2-3 concealers under my eyes since I was 16. PLEASE dont stop making this stuff.... I don't want to go back to looking like a domestic violence case!!!!
I love Benefit but I feel like this product is less than effective. It creases really bad, feels oily, and seems to just sit on the skin. The product in the packaging is impossible to keep clean even though I am a neat freak it always seems to collect dust in the amount of time I have it open to apply it! I literally only use this product to sharpen the lines of my brows and only because I have it. Once I run out, I will not be purchasing it again. I hate saying anything negative about Benefit Products but this one is not for me.
I have mild discoloration and light bags under my eyes, as I suffer from insomnia. I also have extremely, annoyingly vein-y eyelids. LemonAid covers it all, even the bluest of veins. It gives me that pin-up flawless finish that I love, too. It's a must have for me. I used it up entirely, and it lasted for 6 months! Just repurchased, and couldn't be happier. There are only 2 cons with this product; for people with fairer, cooler, and more pink toned skin, the strong yellow might not blend well. I myself have Hispanic, yellow toned skin, so this product blends in beautifully. It's my holy grail. Also, it does tend to crease a bit throughout the day. But thankfully, it's travel friendly, and comes with a mirror, so touch ups are easy, which pretty much eliminates the problem anyways.
I have naturally dark lids, even when I'm well rested. Needless to say, when I'm NOT well rested, they look even more sallow. This product is the perfect solution - I can wear it alone, or use as a primer for my eyeshadow to keep it looking fresh all day.
Lemon aid works perfectly on my fair skin tone. It's step 3 of my routine (step one Porefection, step 2 You rebel), and I use it all over my eyelids, up to my eyebrows and it instantly brightens and lifts my eyes and provides the perfect primer for eyeshadow. On days when my poor face has had too much make up (and too many late nights), I just wear it alone and it looks as though I'm not wearing any make up. So, it's like your own skin....only better! It's an eye lift in a compact. I usually follow with Ooh la lift below the eyes...instant sparkling peepers!
I love this product beyond words.(But, I'll do my best to describe) I have extremely dark lids. They always seem to make me look tired even when I have lid primer and shadow on. I could never seem to get my eyes to look alert and awake, until I started using Lemon Aid. The pigment is perfect for my skin and really make my lids look fresh, clean, and even. I've been wearing this everyday, even the days I don't go through my whole cosmetics routine, simply because it make me feel better about my unever, blotchy patches. It has been a god-sent product for me and I will continue to use it from this point on.
I keep buying Lemon Aid-it really brightens my eyes. However, my last two compacts have broken at the hinge which makes the product difficult to take anywhere. I contacted Benefit and they thanked me for the feedback-period.
I use this as an under eye concealer, and let me tell you, this is AMAZING! The yellow tone is so brightening on my light skin. It doesn't look abnormal at all for me. It is so easy to blend in and use, I use a concealer brush to put it on, a blending brush to blend out the edges, and I just pat it on with my fingertips to kind of set it. And it makes me look like I've gotten sleep. :D I have insomnia, so I sleep a few hours a day, and it makes me look so well rested. I'm glad the woman at Benefit demonstrated this on me, I would've never known how addicted I'd be to this stuff. The only downsides is that it probably won't look okay on darker skin, and it works alright as an actual primer.
Maybe I'm putting too much on or maybe this product isn't right for my skin tone but I wasn't very happy with lemon aid. I like the texture and it definitely does something, but it doesn't work right for me. I have a medium skin tone but I've gotten a lot of sun this summer and I feel like I'm too tan for it or something because it makes my eye lids look extra pale and the yellowness is a little noticeable even when I rub it in good. It definitely diminishes some discoloration, but not it's not as noticeable as I waned it to be. Overall it is okay, I probably wouldnt buy it again but I might recommend it to someone with a lighter tone.
I use this product almost every day. It works well alone and with my foundation. Whether I take 5 minutes or 30, Lemonaid is always a part of my day-to-day make up routine.
This is my go to product in the morning. I am a nurse and as I don't wear a lot of make up at the hospital. I do like to look fresh and Lemon Aid makes my eyes look well rested. I love lemon aid!!!
I got this because after a long winter I look paler than ever and my dark circles are more apparent, even creamy concealers have not been enough to erase them completely.
I though the "yellowness" of the product would annul the darkness, allowing the concealer on top to hide everything, but it didn't... In fact I noticed almost no difference between when applying this product and when only applying the concealer.
I first got it from the confessions kit and I like it ever after. Thus I brought the full size one. It really can bright the eyelid and cover dark cycles. It's perfect to wear it alone with eyeliners and mascaras. It's also a great primer to put eye shadow on, which can make it stay all day long. This color works on me better than the stay don't stray since that one has a darker color than my skin.
Lasts all day when applied, nice base coverage, only negative is it's a little pale for my complexion (but I have olive skin)
I have rosacea on my cheeks (thanks to my Irish heritage!!) and my make-up never looked 'perfect' due to it. I was recommended this product by a beautician in a Benefit boutique and I love it. It's sooooo good for rosy cheeks but the only thing I would say is be careful the amount you apply to your eyelids as I have ended up with creases there which ruins the 'finished' look.
Lemon aid is a makeup bag essential! covers veiny/discoloured
eyelids (note if you don't want to wear eye shadow over this make sure you do not use too much because your eyelids will look unaturaly yellow and it will go into the crease of your eyelids which does not look flattering but using a bit and still getting a great result is actually good because it will last even longer) eye shadows look more bold over this as a base, at first i was not sure about the colour but since its so light you can use any shade over this from white to black but they will stiil look like their true colour but more pigmented. i find that eyeshadows stay through out the day still as bold as when just applied in the morning with no creases.
I bought this product recently and love it so much. I get lots of red patches, particularly around my nose and chin which I can never get rid of. But when I read other reviews and saw that people had said it worked as a concealer I though I should try it. It's brilliant, I now no longer have red patches. I like the fact that it's yellow based rather them pinky/red as I don't like the pinky tint you can get from other products, but this is very subtle. I was also quite worried about the size of lemon aid, as it looks quite small. But you only need to apply a very small amount which means it will last a long time. Overall, I strongly recommend lemon aid for both an eye primer and concealer.
I have VERY fair skin and VERY dark circles around my eyes. Regular concealer just doesn't cut it anymore so the lady at the make-up counter suggested this product. I put a little on under my eyes and on my lids then use my foundation and then apply under-eye concealer and behold!!!... NO DARK CIRCLES. I can never live without this product again, ever. Now i want to try all of Benefit's cosmetics, yay!
Pros: really lightens eyes, doesn't crease, makes you look more awake
Cons: greasy, smudgy*
*it will last forever if you don't touch it, but when you do it comes off right away
This came through the post today, and i was so excited to use it. however when i first put it on, i found myself applying quite a lot to actually see a difference. but once it set and i added some benefits mascara, it does actually work. It actually worked better for my on my chin and the sides of my nose, i get quite red skin there. i went and showed my mum to see if she could see the difference and she said my face does look brighter.
My eyes weren't that bad before i used lemon aid. i do have a few veins and slight darkness at the inner corners and under my eyes. Lemon aid does work it has reduced these things and it works on other parts of my face.
im looking forward to seeing how well it works while im at my job or havent had a good night sleep, as my face can really show how tierd i am.
i don't think it is a must have due to the price, but if you have the cash to splash, this could be great for you!
I had this in the Confessions of a Concealaholic kit and, I admit, I was a little reluctant to use it at first. I've never before used coloured correctors (green, like the Clinique one, or yellow) but that's history from the day I used this one in a summer day. I'm quite prone to redness and the moment I used this to conceal the redness... I was more than pleased at seeing it fade away and my complexion recovered its fair colour. I was so pleased that I couldn't resist getting this on its own after a Brow Bar session. And I also bought the Perk-up artist, to mix and match the very creamy textures.
Very good also for those moments after which you've been at your eyebrows with the tweezers, to eliminate that redness.
When I bought this, I was expecting the formula to be creamy and easy to work with. Instead, it was very thick, almost hardened, and annoying to use. I put it on my lids to conceal purple veins and darkness, and also under my eyes for dark circles, and I didn't see great results. It didn't fix much of anything and it faded in hours. I just didn't think it was great. However, it might just have been mine, because my friend bought it too and she says hers is creamy and works great. I didn't like it, though.
I really love this product as it brightens my eyes on days when i'm feeling tired and looks great, it also comes with a handy mirror for application! The product seems to last forever, which is always good :) Only problem is that it does lose colour and clump in the creases of my eyes by the end of the day but this is easily sorted by rubbing it in again.
As soon as I used this product I fell in love with it. I have dark circles on my eyelids and it was tough to find a product for your eyelids. Most concealers are for under your eyes and just don't work the same for your eyelids. This product instantly makes my eyes brighter and goes on very smooth. It's so worth spending the money on it because it lasts forever.
I absolutely love this product!!! It is better than anything I have tried to even out my skin tone on my eyelid and primer for eyeshadow. It lightens up my eyelids and creates a beautiful canvas for eyeshadow. The only thing I do not like is the compact is too hard to open!! Please change the hard to open compact case on this product!!!! I would give it top ratings if it was easier to open. I also have the lemon aid and boing 2 combination round compact and that compact is much easier to open.
I have the most dark circles in the world, so every product that promises a refreshed look get my attention. Thanks God I tested before buying, because it let my eyelids grey! It was awful, with a dirty look urgh
I absolutely LOVE this stuff. I have little purple veins you can see under my eyebrow (I'm fair) and when I apply this product they completely disappear! Sometimes I don't even wear any eye shadow, just this, it's that good. I recently went to the store and they didn't have this product and I had a mini heart attack thinking they discontinued it, so I'm glad to see it's still here! I don't know what I'd do without it!
When I purchased the Confessions kit I thought this product would be the least useful of them all. What a pleasant surprise I got when I tried it! I don't have red or dark eyelids so I thought it would be a waste of time but it makes them look bright and awake. I tried it on redness on my nose and it hid that too! I think it will also be good under my eyes like other girls have suggested. A great product!
I have very deepset eyes and dark shadows! This product is AMAZING! It is the only product I have ever found that can cover my dark eyes! Blends perfectly - no need for foundation on my eyes now! Beauty essentail and by far the best product benefit have EVER made!!! Well worth the pricey cost, for any dark eye sufferer!! :D
really love this product :) i've had it for about 2 weeks now and i love how it keeps my eyeshadow on all day though it does crease a little near the end of the day. my eyes tend to be heavily creased so i'm glad i discovered this as its brilliant at brightening, priming and correcting defo worth the price.
advantages - its a great primer for concealers and eyeshadows. it lifts and brightens /corrects discolouration and the packaging is cute and stylish
disadvantages - i notice a bit of creasing at the end of the day
On the eyelid, it literally neutralizes dark spots on my lid to give an overall even color for my primer. I do not use it alone as a primer, but I found it also does work nicely when blended evenly anywhere on my face that has hyperpigmentation under foundation
The day i bought this, i lost my money... It is a useless product
Love this product! It is so good at hiding dark circles, I use it everyday and on the weekends and special occasions I use extra all around my eyes for super bright eyes under my other makeup. Love the compact creamy form. I never have to worry about not getting enough sleep making me not as pretty since this product can completely hide dark circles.
I am a makeup artist, and not only do I use this as an eyelid primer, but I also use it UNDER concealer to conceal the darkest of spots. Both erase paste and Bo-ing do an incredible job, but I've had a few people with nearly black marks on their face and just a tap of this under concealers completely erases it:) It is especially good for woman of color who can have the darkest of dark circles... love love love it. The bo-ing/lemon-aid combo was ingenious!
Ive only had this product for a week and I'm so in love with it. It doesn't dry out my skin and covers my dark circles and eyelids perfectly. I also don't feel the need to put any foundation over my eyelids as I usually do because it blends wonderfully, beauty essential for me from now on!
I have been using this for years! (late 90's) I try other brands/products but I keep going back to this. The prices are high but it lasts me FOREVER. I dont throw out make up when it "expires" there are ways to disinfect/clean most products. It doesn't melt or get yucky.
It perfect!!!! I use a brush and my fingers!!! I <3 mine!!!!!
Lemon aid is perfect! It's great for rushed mornings when I have barely any time. I just throw some onto my eyelids and it instantly brightens my whole face, making it look more refreshed and less tired. It's a great product for when you want to go with minimalist look.
I really love this product. It does what it claims and evens out the skin tone of my eyelids wonderfully. Unfortunately it settles in the crease of my lid fairly quickly but i have this problem with all eye creams/shadows. overall a nice product that does do what it claims.
I use this both on my eyelids and underneath my eyes - it's perfect for covering dark circles! A little bit goes a long way too.
i love this product! I bought it a few months ago and still have loads left. Its a really nice, creamy yellow paste which is easy to apply to the eyelid, but is also a great colour corrector for blotchiness - I use mine on any red patches on my nose or cheeks. its a really great eyeshadow primer as well and stays on all day. A lovely way to cover up those grim veiny lids and undereye circles. Love it love it love it!
Lemon Aid is great as an eye primer. use as an eyeshadow primer and the make up on the eye lids really do last all day. i work in retail. i apply my eyeshadow after applying lemon aid, no need to wait for it to set, and i get no creases, no oily skin or eyeshadow disappearing. i never need re applying. if used alone it does look a little unnatural, a bit too yellow. so sometimes on the days i want my make up to look natural i apply a soft pink or nude colored eyeshadow. i don't recommend this product anywhere else as it doesn't do a concealer job. if u do, it requires a great deal in using a flesh colored concealer over the top or touch of foundation. i really recommend this product highly for those who are looking for an eyeshadow primer!!
I came across"lemon aid" when I purchased my Confessions of a Concealahlic kit. I use it on my upper and lower eye lids. I love how it brightens up my eyes! I will definitely purchase the full size item. It's like my own little beauty secret
honestly I dont just use this for my under eyes i use it to conceal redness patches before i apply my foundation and it works a treat! would definitely recommend this!
I often use it....great! My eyes are quickly renewed. I use it also alone, with a hint of mascara.
This is my first step every morning: A little swipe/pat of Lemon-Aid under each eye, then coated over with a natural-colored powder. I'm pale and get big purple half-moons under both eyes, no matter what I do or how much sleep I get!
Without this stuff, I look like a zombie.
That said, I do NOT find it useful as a primer (for holding down eyeshadow). I tried using it on my lid once and it just melted/creased. I do wish Benefit would quit advertising it as a shadow-holding primer, and just tell people to go with Stay Don't Stray for that purpose.
But it's an amazing anti-purple cure. And I've had the same tin of it for years, I think. Great buy.
This product is awesome. I love using it on my eyelids as oil control, and I even pat it onto my cheeks to even out redness. It's perfectly pigmented for pigment control and it's the perfect consistency for blending onto the cheeks and lids. It makes my eyeshadows come on much brighter. However, the one problem I have is that I haven't noticed that it makes my shadows last any longer.
All in all a great product that doesn't do all that it should. I will repurchase.
My eyelids are a little dark(kind of brown), It never bother me but when I saw this on the catalog I thought I will give it a chance. I love it, it covers the brown in my eyelid and as well leave my eyes really bright and perfect. Use it with make up or with out make up. It works perfect for dark spots as well.
Eyelids are usually ignored, speaking of make-up. They are covered by eye shadows, at times, but that's it. Lemon Aid changed it all. It actually makes them look healthier and lighter without covering them, necessarily. It's also very pleasant for the skin itself: it's a fresh, soft substance that just blends perfectly with your skin and it gives you the possibility to get a natural look.
I love this product! I use this everyday after applying my eye primer. The light yellow color really helps brighten your eyes, and even out the discoloration on the eyelids. You can definitely put eyeshadow on top, but only if the shadow is neutral because the yellow color could alter the appearance of a brighter shadow. I just wear it alone, with eyeliner and mascara everyday (I don't really like wearing eyeshadow to school). I really like to look natural, so for me, this product replaces the need for eyeshadow! It's very natural looking once applied; it doesn't look like you just put a bright yellow eyeshadow on. Plus, it's definitely a buildable product!
I believe it stays on all day. This isn't a product that you can obviously see in the mirror because it's so subtle (but a necessary step in the makeup process for me!). It does crease a bit, but that's super easy to fix, and not very noticeable. And, I use it with my UDPP underneath, so for me it stays on all day.
If you are having a hard time figuring out what the use of this product is, it's fairly comparable to a MAC Paint Pot in regards to what the product does-- it acts as an eye base (not a primer!).
Overall, I love this product. The only down-side to it, for me, is that it creases a bit, but I will most likely will repurchase after it's gone! :)
Lemon aid is the best quick fix for those days when there's a little more shadow than sun under your eyes (most likely from staying up late, chatting and watching tear-jerker romance movies with your bestie!). Just a quick pat under my eyes in the morning (with the ring finger of course) and I'm good to go!
Love wearing this product under eye makeup, or even more when I'm not wearing anything else, just to brighten my eyes. Perfect product :)
Makes my tired mummy eyes bright n fresh for the school run in the morning! Great as a primer for eyeshadow tooo!
Turns tired eyelids into their normal shade again.
I brought this product just after my 20th Birthday - May 2010 after using a sample and falling in love with it.
Since buying it, I have used a generous amount every day since then (apart from days I'm really unwell - sickness/flu bugs and I've got half left! So it's worth the value.
I hate my eyelids without it.
I could live without every single makeup product forever if it meant keeping this :) :) :)
It's a great primer for my oily lids and makes my whole eye look brighter.
I brought boi-ing after and it looks lovely together but you could team it with a cheaper concealer if you wish!
This product really brightens my eyelids, but I found that it builds up in the creases, which is not a good look. Powder doesn't seem to be able to prevent this. However, it is so good at covering up redness that I sometimes use it under foundation on really bad areas around my nose. Don't let the yellow put you off as the look is so natural.
I'm in my early 40's and have tried other products and nothing compares to this. It brightens and makes my eyes come alive. Great product! A 10 in my book!
i absolutely love this stuff!!! i have a lot of veins on my eyelids and i dont think theyre very attractive so i use this to cover them up!! it works great!!!
Neutralises discoloration, eye shadow colors are more defined and stay on longer, and it doesn't crease, pull or vanish.
this is my secret....I don't have red cheeks! Really I don't!! Not anymore! This is my concealer for under eyes and red blotchy cheeks. It's got the yellow undertone to cover redness, and I don't use it on my eyelids. I cannot run out of this :)
Wow this stuff is amazing. I now cant live without it. Makes me look so much fresher and awake.
I have been looking about for ages to find a yellow toned correcting concealer. I like how it's nice and thick, and it's got incredible coverage over all the redness and blue tones under my eyes. Also, the light yellow colour looks nice and bright :)
Wonderful, they should make a foundation form of this
This is the perfect way to make your eyes look bright! I use this on my lid and right below my lower lashes to help make my eyes look bright and awake.
I use it when I'm too lazy to wear makeup or when I dance.
It's very natural and makes bright your eyes covering discoloration on lids.
I need a very bit of "Lemon aid" because I notice that if I put too much of this product after a while it creates lines on the lids.
Depending on my days of sleep, I would either use this product as a primer or a concealer. I have tan skin and I can say this blends in pretty well if put on lightly.
When used as a primer for my eyelids, it keeps my eyeshadows "popping" and as a concealer for dark circles, it really does wonders.
i have been using lemon aid for years, but not as a primer. i find that when i put this on my eyelids it tends to crease most of the time. instead, i use this to cover up red blotchy marks on my face from acne and for my undereye circles.
Unfortunately, this product doesn't really work for me. I have quite oily eyelids and so this product creases really badly on my eyes. This may also have something to do with the fact that my eyes are slightly hooded. I prefer Stay don't Stray.
i put this on redness or on my eyes. i am light skins and veins show through i put this over it and they are gone.
A great colour corrector. I have really bad dark circles and I use this to fade them before I apply my eye makeup. As a primer I don't find it super effective, but as a colour corrector it's pretty much everything you'd want.
I love this primer. It's my perfered eye primer, even over Stay, Don't Stray. It makes my eyelids pop and i look instantly awake. It keeps my shadow looking the real color all day long; doesn't smudge or budge. Can be worn alone in place of shadow, too. I bought this in a kit and recommend it to my friends.
I have both lemon aid and erase paste, and while I've noticed erase paste gets more raving reviews, I personally prefer lemon aid for my under-eye concealer. Lemon-aid has less of a pasty texture and creases less for that reason (I like to use the concealer on my lids too -- I don't get much sleep). It also comes with a little mirror and is super portable!
It makes a good primer for eyelids, and makes the eyeshadows 'pop'. Also works for my dark circles around my eyes & red acne - it brighten and neutralize the unwanted color.
I don't use this as a primer, I use it on days I don't really want to wear makeup. It helps brighten up your eyes & cover up discoloration on lids.
Makes eyeshadow last longer and makes it possible to get an even colour of shadow. also masks broken capillaries on the eyelid ready for eyeshadow! great product.
I love how Lemon Aid help brightens up my eyes and always make me look more awake and rested! It really helps to even out the coloring on my eye lids, and I like how I can use it alone or under eye shadow. A little goes a long way, so I am happy to know that it will last for a long time! I fell in love with it after buying the Realness of Concealness set, so I will definitely be buying this full-size once my kit runs out!
This does a great job at persevering eyeshadow. The only catch, if not blended well enough may leave lids a bit yellow.
I have dark circles. And, amazingly, Lemon Aid (such a clever name!) completely gets rid of them and makes me look awake and refreshed. Is it weird to be so in love with Benefit's products?
i love this as a base for my eyeshadow it makes my dark circles disappear!
I only discovered Benefit about 2 years ago when I became really interested in makeup. Benefit is my favourite company by far! I tried lemon aid and loved it. My eyelids are always very red and it works to cover it up with very little product. Sometimes if I put too much I do find that it creases a bit, so sometimes I put a little powder on top to set it. I recommend this to anyone!
I decided to try Lemon Aid to conceal dark circle and redness, as I had read good reviews (which often stated it look best on golden fair skin tones...which describes me perfectly). This is one of the best concealers I have ever used!! It blends so well and a tiny bit goes a long, long way. It makes my eyeshadow have more staying power and is great for concealing redness, dark circles, and veins. I love it and I would encourage all other fair-skinned ladies to try it.
I know this product is a Benefit cult favorite but I've never really liked it. I didn't like the consistency or the color. I felt like it changed the color of the eyeshadows that i put over it and even made them crease! :( Everything that i expected this product to do Stay Don't Stray does. So I stick with that.
I have always had problems with dark circles under my eyes and i didn't have alot of confidence. I have tried everything and when i bought this i was sceptical about it. When I tried it I was amazed at the results. I barely used alot and it made my dark circles completely fade away. It's smooth and leaves your eyes feeling refreshed. I will definitely use this product again
I'm the type of girl that has never liked eye shadow very much, most shades make my eyes look dark not bright. When I tried this product let me tell you something.... life changing. Not only did it brighten my eyes, it brightened up my whole face. I look refreshed. I wear eye liner and mascara everyday and now I wear this product on my lids and sometimes put a bit under my eyes. I highly recommend this product for everyone and especially for people who want to brighten up!
I have bought Lemon Aid a couple of times for my mom and she said it works amazing. Because she is a aged woman, so she needed to cover all the spots around her eyes and Lemon Aid worked perfectly. It was very smooth and can be evenly applyed on eye lids. It can last for a long time with a gorgeous colour. What a useful product!
OMG i love this product, the other day i went and bought one of the christmas gift packs for myself :) and i recieved the "Realness of Concealers" pack free. i thought such good value as that small conealer compact is expensive here in australia! Back to my point, when i first heard of Lemon Aid i thought no way will that product be right for me, but i got the lemon aid in the compact of concealers, this morning my eyes were droopy and i looked so tired, i thought id try lemon aid out and i loved it i would recomend to anyone im buying a full size one as soon as it runs out !!!!!!!!!!!!! I love Benefit i have the whole Collection now!!!! Thankyou benefit for bringing me and the rest of the world the best makeup !!!!!!
Lemon Aid is amazing! A little bit does goes a long way.
I never used an eyelid primer before. I got this in a kit with other concealling products. It works well.
Does what it says it does. Feels nice and makes a great eyeshadow primer too. I have also found that the color works well as a lid color while blending with other neutral shades.
Once I start to use it, I could not live without it. It perfectly hides redness and discolouration on my eyelids, also it hides my horrible eye bags. Recommended!
this was one of the first bene products i bought, and i have to say it didnt live up to its expectations! although yes it does work well as a eye brightener..it doesnt work so well as a primer or alone on the eyes as it creases like you'll never believe!! i dont have particularly greasy lids, but this product made them appear that way, so it is one of the only benefit products that remains deeply rooted in the bottom of my make-up bag. im sure it works for some- but if you dont want creasy,greasy lids i wouldnt recommend it!!
Lemon aid is fantastic. The small container is deceiving because you only have to use a little bit for big results. This product not only corrects discoloration on the eye lids, but it keeps eye shadow in place all day long. I can't imagine a day without it.
I wear this almost every day. It makes me look bright-eyed and bushy-tailed! On special occasions that require more drama, it looks fabulous paired with a dark eyeliner.
This product is so refreshing for the eyes! Also works as a great counteracting color for dark circles under the eyes! Instantly perks them peepers up!
Lemon Aid is one of my staple items in my make-up bag. It really does get rid of the redness on my eyelids (especially in the early mornings!). It's also good for under the eyes if it looks a bit dark, and I've even discovered its great for covering up red blemishes or spots. Can't recommend it enough!
I love this product!! can be worn with or without makeup.
I absolutely LOVE this product. I have fairly deep set eyes with a bit of redness and darkness below the brow bone and at the corners of my eyes. When I apply lemon aid, all the discoloration disappears and my eyes look so bright! I never apply eyemakeup without using lemon aid first, and even on days when I don't wear makeup I often use a little bit of lemon aid to brighten up my face.
I love this product. It covers small veins and reddness on my eyelids and leaves them bright and awake.
I have really red and oily eyelids and lemonaid gets rid of the redness and also of the oil aswell because it has a little like a cream to powder finish. Love it. It makes me look and feel so lemony and fresh :)
A must-have for tired eyes. Lemon Aid works well with Boing, pressed powder and mascara for an easy and quick way to look less tired and put together. I recommed applying pressed powder over the Lemon Aid to avoid creasing. Simply a product I couldn't do without. One compact of Lemon Aid lasts so long...a little goes a long way.
This is just amazing! It can be used as a base or alone, and in both ways will stay for all day long!
It gives you a fresh look, no matter how many hours have you sleep, how many tears have you cry or how many tissues have you spend because of a flu.
I simply love it!
I have always had a problem with dark tinted eyelids. I tried using undereye concealer on them, but it never really worked for me.
I found this and I couldn't be happier! It reallys covers but the discoloration and I look so much more refreshed.
On my "make-up free" days I will just slap on some of this and top it off with Dr. Feelgood. Its perfect!!!
I use lemon aid daily under my makeup. It takes away my dark circles and evens out my skin underneath my makeup. I never travel without it and I've even given it to friends as a must have in their make up case. I combine lemon aid with other fabulous Benefit products like Ooh La Lift! Lots of friends and family ask me my face routine because everything I use is from Benefit and leaves me looking flawless, even on a my worst days!
Does a great job disguising the darkness on eyelids. It can be used as a base or looks good by itself, gives a no-makeup look. Also a good base prior to concealer, and decreases redness around the nose. All this, and it lasts forever!
I stumbled upon the Benefit counter one day & I found myself loving everything, so when the "makeup specialist" asked if she could do my makeup, I jumped in the chair. I told her my main problem was getting my eyeshadow to stay put. She told me to use "Lemonade" as a base and it will stay put all day and even out your eyelid color. Till this day I haven't found anything, and I mean anything, that works as good as Lemonade! I stock up on it when I can and always have an extra just in case :)
I use lemon-aid everyday! It instantly brightens eye and instantly evens out eye lid discoloration. Essential for fast fresh eyes that pop.
I have loved this product since it first came out. It makes your eyelids look so fresh and brand new! It's a perfect base for any shade of eye shadow, and it lasts until you remove your makeup without creasing. So flattering!
I originally did not think this product wasn't for me. But I was wrong. It really lightens up under my eyes and makes them stand out. I use it with Eye Bright and it does an amazing job. It is rather light/bright, so I usually put my foundation/power over it to tone it down a little, but it works perfectly.
evens out skin tone of eyelid well. is verry brightening and provides a good base for eyeshadows. This will however crease over time in hot weather if you are prone to oily lids. in which case you need an eyeshadow base underneath
I really like this product, makes my eyes look refreshed in an instant even when i haven't had a lot of sleep. I only wear it when i'm not going to wear eyeshadow. The only reason why i didn't give it a 5/5 is because sometimes it clumps in the crease of my eyelid but maybe it's my eyelids. anyway that is easily solved by using a little concealer as a base.
This is a wonderful primer for your lids, and evens you out on your "not so good" days!
I am one of those unfortunate souls who has permanent dark circles under my eyes. Lemon aid with its soft yellow tones help to correct all my under-eye and eyelid imperfection and goes perfectly with my "stay, don't stray" and "dandelion" products. I guess you could call me a benefit-girl..
I recently got this as a gift, recommended by my sister in law and I must say it is awesome! It blends perfectly. I feel as good as new when I put this lemon aid on!
I absolutely love this stuff because it works wonderfully as a primer, evens out the skin discoloration around my eyes, and works as a concealer for my fair skin. Never before have I been able to find a product that can do all of these things for me! This is a must-have in my makeup kit.
This is the first cosmetics product I have used that actually comes through! Especially for the eyes. I am one of the unfortunates that was genetically passed raccoon eyes, this product is a life saver. Even on the nights that I have been prevented from real rest by work(or play, haha) a little smear of this stuff goes a long way towards making me human again.
I have been using this product for years and am still in love with it! My shadows stay on all day and look like they were just applied until I am ready to take them off!
I used this product and was simply amazed! I would apply it to my lid area to give my morning eyes a makeover! It is an instant eye opener and prepares your eyelid for any makeup. It allows the true hue of your shadow to really pop! Even on days when I want to wear minimal makeup, I start my day with lemonade and I can look awake in an instant. P.s... like many benefit products.. a little goes a long way!
I've used Lemon Aid for years ... it is truly amazing! I have veiny eyelids and this product completely masks those discolorations minus any creasing. It's also a great lid primer for shadow. Also, the price is reasonable given the quantity of applications.
Can't live without it! My mainstay for work, play, and romantic evenings... it saves my face from lack of rest and lets me show up looking rested and alert (even when I'm not) and helps me continue into an evening of ahhhhhh.......
I don't know how I ever lived without lemon aid. It's great on its own or with shadow. Makes the shadow goe on smoothly and true. Also great for a no make up look. It is by far the best primer I have tried.
I have not been able to stop using this since I first discovered it 5 years ago. When I use this product, it eliminates the need to use a lot of other products. It helps my eyes look awake and fresh, which is the opposite of their natural morning look.
I love love love this product. It instantly makes my eyes look bright and flawless. No more nasty shadow on my lids. Add a little mascara and I am good to go!
My daughter and I use this on eyelids, under eyes and on any red areas. It has great coverage under foundation.
This is my must have and can't leave the house without it product. I use it as a primer on my eyes. To get rid of bags under my eyes and to conceal spots. It is BRILLIANT!!!!! I tell EVERYONE about it :)
OMG, this is amazing!!! I used it like an eyelid primer before applaying the shadow and it works like a charm. Also if you have purple circles under your eyes, this is the shade to cover them up.
I have the proper brush to use with this product but I prefer my fingertips. The texture is so soft and it blends perfectly.
I wasn't too sure how this product would work out and now that I have used it I can't be without it. I have some deep veins in my eye lids and this definitely helps cover those and makes my skin look almost flawless. Love this product.
It's possible to find other yellow lid primers/concealors, but Lemon Aid belongs in a class by itself. It's light texture, brightening effect, and mattifying long-lasting wear have made it my number-one makeup must-have for the last 8 years.
I use this product everytime I just don't wanna use eye shadows. It makes the veins on my eyes disappear and makes me look more awake. However, it cresses a little, so you have to be careful with that.
Really g'd if you don't have much time to put make-up on. Just tab this freshness-delivering 'lemon aid' on eyelid and ready to go!! For better result can be used after applying 'stay don't stray'.
Fabulous! Use it underneath your concealer for a perfect look. It smooths the eye contour,make it more brighter,and you can use it as a base! A must!
I've been using lemon aid for years. It not only makes my eyes look younger and brighter, but also smooths out the skin around my eyes and eyelids. It's a perfect product, no matter your age. I'm just glad it's still available.
absolutely fabulous! it's a must have of mine! bonus - keeps eye shadow on longer without smudging!
This is one of the most amazing products I've used. It is a easy to apply, doesn't look yellow on the lid and keeps my shadow on all day. I do not have really dark lids, but it does even out the skin tone and brightens the eye. Occasionally I wear it without shadow and it looks great, so do my eyes as they look brighter and I look more awake. Does not settle in lines or wrinkles. Absolutely would recommend this product to anyone.
I just started using Benefits and Lemon aid is one of the first products I purchased. It is fabulous! My eyes never looked better. Even my girlfriends are asking me, "What's different about you?" That's the benefits of Benefit baby!
I bought this yesterday, it works miracles as an under eye concealer for dark circles, i have tried almost every concealer and this is the best one yet.
It could be hot as anything out, my makeup will melt off but my eye make-up will always stay in place thanks to lemon-aid :)
I seriously LOVE lemon aid!! This brightens the eyes and does not just conceal. Can be used over or in conjunction with Stay Don't Stray! Lemon aid also makes a great base for shadows and you can just contour, line and be done! This helps me look "awake" on Monday mornings ;)
This is a great "eye highlighter". It makes eyes appear more awake, and bright, and serves as a great foundation before eye shadow application!
Great for those darker areas around your eyes, especially dark lids from being tired. Great under powder eyeshadow. Doesn't let powder eyeshadow wander off!
It covers and brightens veiny, tired eye lids without looking obvious. I love it!
I love this product! It gives my eyelids a perfect colour for eyeshadow application. it also makes my eyeshadow last so much longer.
Amamzing! I used it to cover redness and also to brighten my eyes, specially handy on tired days.
This is an awesome product!! Benefit has sooo many great concealers! Really takes the red away.
I have dark eyelids and if I don't use some kind of primer it mutes my eyeshadow color. This is a good product not my fave but still good.
I use Lemon Aid occasionally as an eyelid and face color corrector, but it's not nearly as good as I was hoping it would be. It creases almost immediately on my eyes and doesn't work very well as an eyeshadow color base. It works better to correct redness elsewhere on the face, on top of foundation, although it tends to sit on top of my pores in a weird way and look cakey. It is a nice, creamy texture, though, and the color really does brighten eyes on most skin tones.
Love this stuff! One of my favorite Benefit products!
i put this on before my beauty ritual in the morning and it not only brightens my eyes, but makes my eyeshadow last longer. i have to admit the name is pretty cute too.
This eyeshadow sounds good but, ladies, if you want pretty peepers you don't need to cover them with this goopy mess. A neutral beige or sparkly creaseless cream shadow (or even just the 360 eye primer by itself) will knock this product out of the game any day. This is a thick product that feels heavy on the lids, unlike all of their other shadows. Because of its consistency, they recommend using your finger to apply the product as it "melts" it a little. I don't like being restricted to using my finger. I'm a free spirit! Let me apply my shadow as I wish! In addition to the cakiness of it, this "primer" creased within minutes. Not impressed.
Would I buy it again? Absolutely not. Sorry Benefit. I still love you, but this did not work for me.

when do you apply lemon aid - before or after foundation?
Just starting to explore color correction and I'm confused as to what goes first - lemon aid then followed by foundation or is it the other way around?
You should apply lemon-aid first https://www.benefitcosmetics.com/product/view/lemon-aid

Is Lemon-aid good for dark skin tones
Hi, I was wondering whether this is suitable for for my friend who has dark circles around her eyes but her skin tone is quite olive..
I have medium skin with an olive undertone. I think Lemon Aid does a great job color correcting around the eyes for me. I hope your friend has a store close by where she can try the product.
YES! This is by FAR the BEST undereye purple circle miracle remover I have ever encountered as a makeup artist who has been covering my circles for over 17 years....use with the appropriate bo-ing concealer and your friend will be AMAZED
It really depends on your friend's undertones. There's really no way to answer without seeing her. I recommend Boi-ing for hiding dark circles. It's offers industrial strength coverage.
How do I keep this stuff from going into the crease of my eyelid?
I have used this two times now and both times it ended up in the crease of my eyelid. The first time I used stay don't stray, the second time I didn't, thinking it might just be suitable for shadows. How do I stop this from happening because I really love the result right after putting it on.
I would recommend using a neutral eye shadow to set the Lemon Aid. It may help with any creasing. This has worked for me and even stays while exercising!
Do you apply it with a brush? If not, I suggest applying it with a brush to distribute it evenly on your eyelid. Hope this helps!
I would like to recommend using an eye cream before you put this on. It helps combat the dry fine lines :)
As a suggestion from me personally,
I would use my pinky finger to apply this on my eyelids, that way you know how much you are putting on. I would dab it right underneath your eye brow area and on the eyelid closest to your lashes then lightly smooth them towards the center so you get the most coverage on the outside rather then caking in the crease. I hope that helps.
A little goes a long way with Lemon aid and stay don't stray. My suggestion would be to try applying less, also use a concealer brush. No matter how clean our hands are, it could be that applying with your finger tiops is making your lids oily. To finish your look, apply your favorite shadow. I love using our creaseless cream shadows, I can't live without them!
