The amount of stupidity that the Muse buys into does so boggle her little mind. Take for example her love affair with B&C Ultra Skin Make Up Base which promises to clear away dull, dark circles and make the Muse fresh, awake, and gorgeous.
Well….I like to think it’s working….*shrug*
B&C are those friendly people that bring you the cosmetic line Love Clover although that particular branch of B&C is more geared towards the kawaii theme of things.
B&C also makes a range of primers, concealers, and other bits and bobs that you’ll run across within Japanese drugstores. Today I’ll be bringing you a review of the B&C Ultra Skin Makeup Base for the Eyes which I’ve convinced myself is almost as important as the coming of the Messiah.
You do realize that this is one of those products that excels at doing absolutely nothing but that the Muse has absolutely, positively tricked herself into believing she’s seen amazing results after use. Don’t sit there and act like you don’t know what I’m talking about! You’ve done it before too!
What is it? It’s a makeup base for your eyes that basically preps the eye area with a thick yellow base in a creamy formula prior to concealer. Supposedly the base lightens up the eye area and erases certain dullness and possibly even dark circles from under your eyes. Honestly, I’m not sure if it’s my imagination or not but it makes one hell of a primer for concealer. It doesn’t cover dark circles but it does lighten a tad bit and it makes a very nice prep for concealer as it moistens up the eye area fairly well and considering my eyes can use all the moisture they can get that’s a plus.
I’m not sure why they advertise it as being a concealer for under eye circles because if you had plans for a night out on the town using this only best forget it. Unless you’re blessed with very light dark circles that are barely noticeable chances are you’ll never be able to use this as your sole concealer. The product is a base after all and being deemed and labeled as such I take it for what it’s worth which would be a prep treatment prior to my concealer.
Now the Muse may have just convinced herself that this does work but I honestly couldn’t do without it because I generally like it as a primer and for it’s slight whitening effect.
Seriously my arm looks a bit lighter right!?
I do admit that the guy on the package scares me…what the hell is he doing with his mouth wide open like that anyway? Blowing into her eye??? So scary. Who is that dude and can we replace him with some hot Japanese dude? Is Gackt to busy to advertise for B&C because I honestly wouldn’t mind him blowing in my eye.
Who needs it?
- It’s cheap so the Muse thinks everyone needs it ($4-$5 USD)!
- Those who want a bit of a moist prep prior to concealer (although don’t think it fills lines because it does not)
- Anyone who wants a tad bit of a whitening moisturizing treatment prior to applying concealer
- Girls who buy into the frenzy of possibly stupid, useless products!
All in all I’ll continue buying this each and every time I run out. I’m either a glutton for punishment or this stuff actually works. Who knows?
Tell the Muse some of your favorite, useless beauty finds!
