Laura Mercier Eye Basics have been a part of my beauty arsenal for a while, I have all the shades. Their such a quick, easy way to brighten up eyes and prep them for other makeup or even just a little eyeliner and go. I normally use a shade on weekends when I really can’t be bothered with a full eyeshadow look. They have a way of brightening my eyes and giving them a flawless finish with very minimal effort on my part.
I was every so delighted and excited that for Spring, Laura has introduced new Eye Canvas pots. Granted, we all concentrate so hard on concealing the area under our eyes but never neglect your lids, they need a little TLC too and Eye Canvas promise to be the perfect little prep for the area.

Ahh MAC Mineralize Concealer, I’ve been waiting for you my entire MAC life. You’re so hydrating!
I’ve tried many a MAC concealer but I must say they are all really, really dry and/or drying under my eyes. I don’t think MAC really set out to create concealers for those of us with dry skin. What’s your experience been like with MAC concealers? Funny, as they have really good coverage but when it comes down to being moisturizing they simply don’t cut it.
Until now, their new Mineralize Conealer is incredibly hydrating. They did well with this one but….
Looking for the next best thing to brighten up your tired eyes?
Tarina Tarantino Eye Dream Hyperlight is a new way to reduce the appearance of dark circles and perk up tired eyes. You can use it under or over your concealer and foundation to diminish the appearance of woe and replace it with wow.

Josie has a great line of cosmetics but she hasn’t yet released a concealer that gets a huge rave from the masses. For someone who injects Argan Oil into everything you’d think that her concealers would be super moisturizing…not the case in my experience.
I did happen to fall in love with her short lived full coverage concealer pen. Not everyone loved this pen, in fact, it got like a one star rating on QVC but I absolutely adored it (I hated it at first) and wish I could get my hands on some more.
The new Josie Maran Erase and Rewind Argan Concealer is actually awful but, again, for some odd reason I’m in love with it.
Brighten up tired eyes? I’m on that.
Between constant computer use at my office plus doing my blog and gaming…well, my eyes, they look tired. On top of that I’m getting to that age where I’m not always looking my freshest in the AM and I need a little helping hand to brighten my eyes up a bit and make them look wide awake and fresh,
Perhaps the new Revlon PhotoReady Eye Primer + Brightener is just the ticket!
