"for a non girly girl I'm not doing too well"

As some of you will know from my other reviews I claim to be a non girly girl, however this is the third review I've done for a girly product!!

I like make-up, don't get me wrong, I just don't wear it every single second of every single day, as such it lasts me a long time and I feel very different when I wear it.

I've heard of this for years and always wanted some but when I asked my parents for it for christmas and birthdays, they tended to look back at me dressed in my ripped jeans, doc martens, no makeup and well worn wonderstuff t-shirts tip their heads to one side and say maybe next year.

So when I matured ainto a 20 something in business suits, heels and off to london for meetings their heads were then tipped in a ‘well you can afford it now way’. bless 'em.

But it was not until last December that I actually though I could justify spending £26 on one item, but I was on my way to Austria and was in the duty free section so thought why not, my nana had given me some money and I'm sure she wanted me to spend it on this. Well after many arguments with my friends who was saying she got it when it first came out last year, a complete lie, it has actually been around for 10 years, I bought it and I have to say it is the best thing ever. I couldn’t use it in Austria as due to all the different protective gunk we were slapping on our faces it would have just slipped off!!

So when I got back the first thing I did was run to my bathroom and try it. The really fantastic thing about this product is it's look, you know you've got something expensive but worth it, even now nearly a year later it still makes me feel good to reach past my superdrug eyeliner and boot's make up pads to my YSL Radiant touch sleek gold pen!

Anyway, I followed the instructions to presses of the black button and I watched the product appear from the middle of the brush. I brushed it onto the bags under my eyes, the product is exactly the right consistency and used my finger to tap/rub it in which it does very easily. It does make a really big difference, especially when I went to my lighted mirror where the light shines onto your face, there the radiant aspect of the name really works, your skin looks smooth and an even colour. I wear this product whenever I wear make up and it's the old head and shoulders thing where I'll say to people that I use it and they say that I don't need to, exactly because I'm wearing it!! It lasts all night and even if I forget to take my make up off the night before I'll wake up in the morning after a very short sleep and think how wide awake I look until I remove last nights makeup and realise it was still there hiding the dark circles! Sometimes I use it when I don't wear foundation and it gives a flawless look it's not heavy so it doesn’t settle in the lines, it is defiantly a make-up must have. also you don't have to spend time looking for the right shade and testing it as one shade suits all.

I do have to point out though that it is possible to over use this product, if you look at pictures of celebrities and under there eyes is quite lighter that is the flash of the camera reflecting back from the radiant touch, this is also the same reason that you shouldn’t really use it as a concealer as it can draw attention to blemishes for the same reason it hides dark circles under your eyes, it reflects the light. But unless you're going to snapped it's not a major problem!!

The price while expensive does vary at different places, I got mine for £26 a year earlier I saw it for £36 I've had mine for nearly a year and still it shows no signs of running out. I recommend this whole heartedly to everyone
