But here we are a few months later and a brand new concealer to discover from the brand. Hard Candy Undercover Agent Undereye Brightener & Concealer Duo not only addresses my dark circles but also my puffiness in one easy to use concealer.
Let’s check it out and see!
Hard Candy Undercover Agent Undereye Brightener & Concealer Duo tackles all your under woes with a concealer and a brightening, de-puffing gel, all in one tube!
At first glance I was a little skeptical of this as the entire idea of a Brightener and a De-puffer along with my concealer, well, I’ve tried ALOT of eye creams that promise to depuff and brighten but none work.
The tube is a tad irritating at first as well since it contains a small concealer stick on the head of the cap (kinda like a lip balm) and a tube of the brightening agent. I’m not one for concealer sticks as I find they are drying in formula however count me surprised on this little guy.
First off, the dome shape of the concealer fits brilliantly under my eyes so I can swipe on and blend out with my fingertips. The formula ranges in the zone of being partly dry and partly hydrating. So it’s not CRAZY emollient but it isn’t terribly dry either, it kinda falls in between the two textures and comes across as an every so slightly moisturizing concealer with a firmer texture. Speaking as someone with dry eyes I can safely say this doesn’t crease into fine lines nor does it cake or age my eyes. It applies beautifully well and blends out quite nicely however you might want to blame it on the Brightener for the smoother finish which aids the concealer in applying easily. The concealer isn’t crazy pigmented but the medium shade seems to have just the right amount of peach in it to diminish dark circles and concealer woe in a snap.
The Undereye Brightener sounds like a gimmick because as I mentioned I’ve pretty much tried many eye creams that have promised the same but I honestly feel like this actually depuffed my eyes a little and made them more awake and refreshed. At first I didn’t notice anything but within an hour I could see the puffiness under my eyes was minimal and my eyes looked quite refreshed for someone who didn’t get much sleep over the weekend! The formula seems to look alot like the Hard Candy Eye Primer. It’s a milky, gel-like texture that absorbs easily under the eye and dries down quickly but it seems to create a nice hydrating finish under my eyes and makes a decent prep for the concealer.
I thought the concealer was a little awkward situated on top of the tube as every time I unscrew or screw the lid on I keep bumping the concealer and causing a bit of a messy situation with the cap.
- Anyone who needs brighter, fresher, less tired looking eyes!
- Those seeking a budget concealer that actually works!
- Younger eyes that need to conceal dark circles and depuff them due to late nights!
- Those who aren’t keen on dual packaging (the packaging is a little messy and awkward).
- Very mature, older eyes with delicate skin (those who have very delicate skin under their eyes may wish to avoid as the formula isn’t forgiving in this area, I’d suggest for those in their teens to those up to their 40’s but not beyond).
I absolutely loved this and felt like it was kinda one of those products you might pass up on because of the packaging or the price but it honestly turned into a love! The packaging is a bit on the messy side of things but aside from that I thought both the concealer and the undereye brightener worked brilliantly well! I tried out medium since I had such issues with Glamoflauge being a little TOO light for me and it actually worked out perfectly well!
Overall, it feels like a YOU need this type of item and definitely deserves a full Muse Approval.
