I have to say I'm on the fence about this primer. I do love the texture — thin, lightweight, absorbs instantly. It feels more like a smoothing lotion rather than your typical silicone-y primer. It is fragrance-free but it does smell chemically, albeit faint. My skin appears somewhat smoother afterwards but it doesn't mattify or cover any redness. In fact, I didn't quite see any “calming” properties from this primer at all to tell you the truth. It didn't cause any breakouts on my skin but I didn't see it “calming” the ones I have, either.

Smokey Eye Mascara
I'm pleasantly pleased with this mascara! I didn't expect too much at first but then it blew me away! I like the tapered tip because it grabs those tiny lashes in the hard-to-reach inner corners really well. The formula is smooth, non-clumpy, and most importantly, does not flatten my curl (I have thin, sparse lashes and most mascaras weigh my lashes down miserably). It does not volumize my lashes as claimed but it does seem to lengthen them somewhat. The only drawback: it smudges, although just a tiny bit, later on in the day.

It's Potent! Eye Cream
This eye cream really does brighten the under eye area as promised! I have been applying it 3 times a day and have noticed my dark circles (from lack of sleep) becoming less and less noticeable. I never expect a miracle from any eye cream but I have to say this one really did make a difference. The cream is lightweight, extremely moisturizing, smells divine, and sinks in immediately leaving no oiliness afterwards. Can I also mention the cute little jar?! The only minor flaw: it causes serious stinging and watering if it gets in the eyes!
