The most flawless high coverage, under eye concealer!

This year, I've really struggles with concealing my under eyes and the big blue circles that come along with them. I've tried many products, some which were really great at concealing but left my skin dry and wrinkly. And some, well they were just plain awful. But with just under 2 months left of 2016, I've finally found the most flawless, high coverage concealer for vanishing those pesky under eye circles!

I have normal to dry skin and awful blue circles under my eyes, so finding a concealer that not only vanishes the zombie on my face but also moisturises, has been a hard task. Last year, I was besotted with the Creamy Radiant Concealer by NARS. It has amazing coverage and doesn't sink into any fine lines, great right! My only issue was that the formula is much to thick for the under eye area, which made it feel cakey and most certainly not natural.

If on the off chance, you're after something high coverage for pimples and redness though, you should definitely check it out! In fact, I've got a post for it here...

I tried so, so many different concealers and throughout my search, everybody was telling me to try the Naked Skin Concealer from Urban Decay. And I mean everybody! But I was so desperate to find something more afforable. In hindsight, I should have just listened because here I am 10 months later and probably well over £50 down on all the wasted concealers. On this occaision, you can't just tick all the boxes on thiand not spend over £10.

Naked skin sounds great, I'd love to be able to wear my skin naked. In fact, on most days, I actually do but on the days where I can't face the world looking half dead, a concealer that hides the things you don't like but in a natural "I woke up like this" kind of way, is everything! 

It has a dauffer applicator, so precision application is super easy. Not that I need precision under my eyes because those dark circles spread further than the Sahara desert. No joke. I've been using my Zoeva '142 / Concealer Brush' brush to distribute the product a little more evenly, because if anything the dauffer aplicator can be a little generous, but that would be my only negative point. But I wouldn't say no to a little more concealer, not where my under eyes are concerned that's for sure.

The finer cosistency is a dream for blending and almost unnoticable around the thin layers of skin under my eyes. It sets slower, so you have more time to blend and really work for that natural finish. And it lasts well, too. I always top my concealer up thoughout the day, but I haven't noticed an exelerated dissapearance compared to other concealers I have tried. 

I'm pretty damn impressed to say the least. I am sending out virtual hugs to everyone who told me I should try it! In fact, I'm so impressed, I really want to get my hands on the Naked Skin Colour Correcting Fluid from Urban Decay too. I reckin if it works as beautifully as this concealer, we may have a under eye dream team on our hands. 

But I'll get back to you on that...

Love always,
