First Impression: Yves Saint Laurent Forever Youth Liberator Eye Creme

Hello Princesses!

Today I'm going to be talking about the Yves Saint Laurent Forever Youth Liberator Eye Creme. I received this little tester pot when I purchased the Touche Eclat Highlighter last year, and have been using it for the past month now that I'm out of the teeny little sachets of eye cream samples. It's super expensive at $130NZD for 15ml, but is it actually worth that price?
 What Does It Do?
• Anti-puffiness
• Brightens dark circles

In addition to Glycanactif™, soothing ingredients refresh and relax the eye area, while micro-shimmer particles provide smoothing and illuminating effects.

The eyes appear fresher and more radiant:
• In one month, dark circles are less noticeable and seem to have disappeared.
• The eye area appears more toned, as if “lifted"

Apply to clean skin, around the eyes, morning and evening.
May be used under makeup." (1)

I find it quite interesting that this product doesn't claim to help or prevent wrinkles under the eye, but rather to mask the wrinkles with micro-shimmer particles that provide smoothing and illuminating effects. I personally find that this eye cream does nothing for my under eye wrinkles, other than making them look more obvious because they look a little shiny.
 Would I Purchase This Product?
For a whopping $130NZD for 15ml of cream, this product just is not financially viable, especially for something that only masks wrinkles rather than helping prevent or smooth them out. I don't even think this does a very good job at masking wrinkles, because I feel that the eye cream make them look even more deep set!

Has anyone had a good experience with this eye cream?
