Everyone has their makeup vices, the one product they have an influx of because they have that one problem area. I have mine and that is concealer + under-eye products.
A few years back, when I first started getting into make-up and beauty, I realized there was something off about the way my make-up was applying. I didn't know what it was until it just hit me one day... my dark circles. I immediately went to Sephora to pick up the right concealer and with the help of a lovely sales girl, she gave me this Sephora brand concealer.
When she applied it, she used the Makeup Forever HD Powder to set it and I honestly looked like a different person. I couldn't stop looking in the mirror, I was in awe.
Of course when I tried to apply it the same way at home, it didn't look so effortless (mostly because I didn't have the powder or proper brushes)
Ever since then, I've been on a hunt to eliminate and hide my dark circles. They've gotten better and through my entire escape of allergies and eczema, the skin under my eye is now super sensitive but also appears and feels a lot smoother.
I've become truly obsessed with under-eye products; whenever there is a new one at Sephora or the drugstore, I have to stop myself from buying it. I'm addicted to make-up but under-eye products are my true true obsession.
Because of this, I've tried a lot of eye creams, brighteners, and concealers that are awesome and some that are not so great.
Like yesterday's post, this is a post I've been putting off because I didn't know if I had enough products but I decided there is no better time like the present.
//Benefit's Ooh La Lift: I think I've mentioned this on the blog before and I just started using it again. I need a new one desperately because mine is really old but it's awesome. It's an under eye brightener that you put on before concealer and it instantly brightens, lifts, and adds a touch of highlight. Some days I put this on even if I'm not applying make up because I just like the way it makes my eyes appear.
//Benefit's Erase Paste: This was one of the first products I ever reviewed here and since then, I have not repurchased it because I've been experimenting with other concealers but I know this is will be a purchase in the near future. It's a salmon colored concealer that is made to correct the dark blue/purple circles under your eyes. It's really sticky but I think with a BeautyBlender, it would blend out beautifully.
//Olay Fresh Effects Bright on Schedule: This is an eye awakening cream that I apply in the morning. It has a cool metal applicator that helps de puff the eyes and it also helps to brighten the area. It makes a nice canvas for concealer and I love it.
//Maybelline Age Rewind & Fit Me Concealers: Maybelline is dominating the drugstore concealer game. Both of these are cult favorites amongst Youtube beauty bloggers. Both are really creamy, light concealers that really don't crease and truly cover up any dark circle you have. They're good for brightening as well and they're my most repurchased beauty products.
//GlamGlow BrightMud Eye Treatment: I got this as a Sephora sample and used it a few times when I was trying to figure out what was wrong with my eyes and it was kind of life changing. I stopped using it because my eyes were getting worst. It wasn't because of the BrightMud but because of my allergy. When I did use this, I noticed a different the next morning. My eyes were softer, brighter, and a little less dark. I started using this again because I still had some left in the packet and it's been doing wonders.
//Essence of Beauty Gel Eye Mask: This is a lifesaver and I've been using it everyday since I bought it in the summer. It's a soft gel mask that you can use cold or hot (I keep mine in the refrigerator) and I apply it every morning to depuff my eyes. It feels so good and actually makes a difference!
