My take on Coastal Scents Bright Eyed Eye Brightener:
Variants: Ivory, Light, Medium, Dark.
I picked up the shade Medium from all shades. It was a complete guess work. I had not seen the swatches before purchasing it. I guessed medium would be perfect for us Indian beauties. Light and Ivory are tad lighter and have pinkish tones to them. I have no clue about dark just it is way too dark, people above NC 42 might find a match to it. Shade Medium is a great choice for people with skin tone NC 37 to NC 42.
Packaging: Coastal scents eye brightener comes in a beautiful funky blue colored tube packaging. It has a silver colored screw on cap with it. The tube has a nozzle that dispenses accurate amount on squeezing. I did not face any product wastage. Complete ingredient list alongwith usage tips are mentioned in the outer carton.
Coverage: It is an eye brightener that instantly uplifts dull looking eyes and gives a natural finish by concealing and brightening under eye area. I also use it on my pigmented lids. It gives medium coverage and conceals my dark circles effectively. It has peachy tones to it which corrects the dark circles and brightens the area without any greyish white cast or unnatural OTT finish.
Texture & Finish: This eye brightener has smooth creamy consistency. It is neither too runny nor too thick, it has got just the perfect consistency that blends in a jiffy. It feels very lightweight and gives semi matte finish. It keeps my under eyes hydrated for a long time.
Longevity: This eye brightener keeps my under eye area natural looking for a long time. It did stay on my eyes for 4-5 hours easily without fading or settling into fine lines.
