I will be the first person to admit that I need a bit more help in the under eye department now that I've started working full time and with the festive party season coming up and a lot more late nights on the horizon I can only see these bags turning into suitcases. So when my Benefit Fake Up bit the dust I replaced it with this fairly new launch from Maybelline.
I went for the lightest shade which is aptly named 'Light' and it's even a little pale for my translucent skin but I read that it's best to go for a shade lighter for your under eye area anyway in order to conceal and highlight. The little tube that it comes in is really handy and lightweight to carry around with you, I did initially think mine was broken when I first went to use it because I had to twist it round about a million times to get any product out! The tube is topped off with a really soft dome shaped sponge that makes application so easy and if you were on the go you wouldn't have to faff around with brushes or mucky fingers. The only downside of this sponge is that there's no way to detach it and give it a good cleaning but as I reapply my concealer quite a bit during the day it will probably be long gone before it gets the chance to get overly gross.
The coverage of this is really good but if you have extreme dark circles then maybe you need something a little bit more heavy duty. It's such a light formula and you can hardly tell that you're wearing it, it feels almost mousse like when applying. My one pet hate about under eye concealers is creasing so I'm always a little bit wary of that when I start using something new but I have experienced no creasing whatsoever with this which makes me a happy bunny! This is a purse friendly concealer that will definitely be able to hide whether you stayed out for one to many the night before!
