The search for a high-coverage concealer that both wears well and covers my super dark under eye circles is quite a difficult quest. Actually, my search for high coverage concealers is one of my interests that sparked my interest in makeup and led me into beauty blogging!
My Dark Under Eye Circles:
I am plagued with very dark under eye circles. It is the bane of my existance beauty-wise. My dark circles are my "problem area" and are the reason that I am rarely without makeup (at the minimum, I always cover my dark circles! Otherwise, people would ask me all day if I was tired or sick because of the darkness).
My dark circles are because of heredity, allergies, and general insomnia/lack of sleep. Honestly, there are a few things I can do to help them: drink more water, use a good eye cream, take allergy medicine, and try to get more sleep. However, none of these attempts reduces them very much. The only way for me to get rid of them is to use a high coverage concealer.
High Coverage concealers: This is a slippery slope. I want the coverage, but don't want to look cakey and un-natural. Honestly, I prefer a natural look. So, ideally, I want my concealer to blend seemlessly into my skin. However, with high coverage often comes a heavier product that can cake and settle into fine lines. What is a girl to do? Sigh!!!
I do have some long-standing favorites that work well for coverage and wear. With that said, I am always looking for more products and solutions to my dark circle delimma!
This dual ended product is so effective!!!
Two steps: Hydrate skin with a plumping moisture balm and then camouflage your dark circles with highly pigmented liquid minerals.
An ingenious duo containing both a concealer and a twist up, skin plumping moisture balm, the Osmosis Colour Age Defying Treatment Concealer camouflages and corrects as it smooths fine lines and wrinkles with highly pigmented, buildable coverage.
Full of Argan Oil, Apricot Oil, Coconut Oil, Shea Butter and Vitamin E to nurture delicate areas, the moisture balm hydrates and plumps to soften wrinkles around the eye area, mouth and lips. This hydrating balm ensures subsequent makeup does not settle into and accentuate fine lines. Imperfections will diminish as this hydrating balm helps to "fill" lines for a youthful appearance.
With a soft sponge applicator on the other end, the liquid concealer is a non-comedogenic formula that will not clog pores or cause breakouts. It’s rich, intense pigments will easily mask dark circles, pigmentation, redness, and blemishes. Simply pat the formula in and blend with your fingertips to leave skin that looks younger, smooth and without blemish.
I am so amazed at the performance of this product! For such a thin product, it gives amazing full coverage! The product is so pigmented that you really do not need to use much. This is great because less product means that it looks more natural and less cakey. The coverage is buildable and I was able to effectively cover my very dark under eye circles and eye area redness. I am thrilled with the coverage and the wear.
This product is available in 4 shades. I found the fair shade to be a very nice match for my fair skin tone.
Retails for $38.00.
