Waking up my tired eyes, story of my life people.
Feels like my eyes are always extra puffy in the AM…correct that, one of my eyes has baggage that I carry my lunch to work in. No but seriously, true story, one of my eyes always has a bit of puff going and I thank the makeup Gods daily for concealer to hide that particularly woe along with finer lines, darkness, etc….
Pixi WakeUp Concealer is a brand new concealer releasing with the Pixi Beauty Fall 2011 Collection that promises airbrushed results and buildable coverage for camflouaging all those pesky under eye problems.
Does it do the trick?
Almay Wake Up Under Eye Concealer is a new concealer that promises to conceal and depuff. Is it me or does every single new concealer that comes out promise to depuff under eyes?
Maybe they read my blog and realize I need a little depuffing action. Honestly, they NEVER work though. They might conceal the puff but not treat it.
Anyway, I avoided this particular concealer for a while since it’s a squeeze tube with a brush application. No likey the packaging. I knew it would prove messy and I was right but I decided to give it a whirl anyway as that “wake up” bit had me….anything that wakes my eyes up or promises to ends up capturing my attention easily.
Anyone try the new Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Concealer yet?
This one had me intrigued even though my gut instinct is to turn tail and run in the opposite direction whenever I see new drugstore concealers, I’m of the mentality that concealer is a splurge item.
Supposedly this one will erase dark circles and diminish puffiness. I’m having my love, hate relationship with it at the moment.
Korres has extended its popular Quercetin & Oak Collection by adding a new concealer to the line up! This little guy promises long lasting, crease-free coverage to conceal dark circles while reducing the appearance of fine lines.
Hyaluronic acid is added into the mix for an emollient formula that moisturizers dry skin and keeps it hydrated.

I’m pretty much happy with my Skin Food Salmon Dark Circle Powder and you’d have to wrestle a jar from my cold dead hands….but…as a beauty junkie I’m willing to try new things. I call these new product try outs a necessary evil “for the blog” but if I’m honest with myself I just like trying new shiz.
Prior to discovering Skin Food’s brilliant little powder I was all about just saying no to powder under my eyes as it was aging me terribly due to the fact that my eyes are not only dry but also aging now so adding powder around the area, well, it wasn’t pretty…!
However, Skin Food Salmon Dark Circle Powder restored my faith in a good concealer setting powder that not only set my concealer for all day wear but also brightened up my tired looking eyes.
I decided to give Le Metier de Beaute Eye Brightening and Setting Powder a whirl because I obviously have money to burn, dude, this stuff is $36 for a tiny little compact, yeah, serious head examining needs to be done here.
