This under eye concealer will change your life! If you are anything like me, you hate applying concealer under your eyes and trying to blend it perfectly without it cracking a part or getting into your eyes. That’s not to mention the worst part of the whole process – having to dab powder on top of your failed attempt of concealing your dark circles – Well if you have these same problems, you can thank me later because I found the solution… This little stick glides on seamlessly because it has a layer of concealer and a layer of ‘bio-lift’ cream (botanical squalane, soy & vitamin E)…so it softens the area while concealing it.
Here is a brief description from the manufacturers, which I firmly believe it to be true:
“A concealer that actually works to erase fine lines as it covers them. This powerhouse product combines innovative technology with ultra-smooth color coverage. Its core delivers an anti-wrinkle hexapeptide, relaxing existing lines and prevents new ones from forming. The light reflecting particles offer a hydrated and smooth finish to the undereye area, and the packaging makes it easy to reapply throughout the day as needed. Offers a non-chemical SPF 10.”
After you use the stick to apply the concealer, all you have to do is dab & blend with your finger or with the pointed end of your beauty blender (reviewed here).
Final Thought: Although I love this product and never leave home without this tiny silver stick stashed away safely in my purse, I do have to use a heavier under eye concealer for those days I need to wear more makeup or I have those pesky stubborn dark circles that appear much bigger than usual. With that said, I have tried many,many, MANY (probably too many) different under eye concealers for such occasions. I have not found ‘the perfect’ one just yet, but I have realized that my skin, and in particular my under the eye skin, requires different types of concealers for different situations.
