I’ve tried many concealers in my day and consider myself a tad on the concealer obsessed side of things. I have dark circles, fine lines, and puffiness that I really want erased so I can appear brighter, fresher, and wider awake which is why I’m constantly purchasing and rotating endless concealers, in the hopes, that I’ll finally come across “the one”.
On my travels through budget land I came across NYX Concealer Magic Wand and decided, hey, why not, cheap concealing power, let’s try.
Here are my thoughts!
If you’ve been burning and yearning for The Skin Food Salmon Dark Circle Concealer Cream but had no way to purchase it because it’s available in Korea, you might want to check out Pixi Correction Concentrate as it’s a pretty decent dupe of Skin Food’s version and you can get it at your local Target too!
Dark circles are the worst and many people suffer from them and seek out the best possible way to conceal them. Many makeup artists will tell you the best way to diffuse darker circles is by adding in peach or yellow concealer to correct the darkness.
This is what Pixi Corruption Concentrate is meant to do. Diffuse, erase, and brighten using a peach base.
Does it work?
There’s something terribly appealing about flawless skin but I gotta say that the idea of complexion perfection packaged in a neat-o little box for under $50 kinda makes me hyper.
Meet the new Shiseido Perfect Complexion Kit.
Laura Mercier started the flawless box trend but Shiseido steals this show with some pretty incredible offerings in a single box for perfecting your face and getting you looking all kinds of stupid flawless.
You NEED this.
Guerlain Parure Compact Foundation will set you back a whopping $78 bucks. Not necessarily a bad thing if you love gorgeous makeup but let me take a second to introduce you to the Lorac Event Out Complexion Kit which is just as gorgeous, just as luxe, and a fraction of the cost.
Wanna see it?
I’m in a constant battle with dark circles, bane of my utter bloody existence. The makeup gods look down on me and cackle punishing me with not only dark circles but puffiness. I think I’m in more of a battle with the bulge (puffiness) than I am with dark circles most days of my life.
So of course I’m all about trying as many concealers as my make up life permits. I have about 25 different concealers that I rotate daily to see which gets me the most flawless look of all and I’m constantly trying new ones. Smashbox Pro Waterproof Second Skin Concealer is one that recently crossed my dark circle path and I’ve been having a little test with it this week and I gotta say for those of you with dark circles you’ll probably likey this little guy alot.
