Pat Mcgrath Sublime Perfection Blurring Under-Eye Setting Powder launched several long months ago and I purchased it the day it came out and to this very day I’m still trying to get it to work for me. I’m convinced I’ll wake up one day and find the perfect eye cream combination to get this stuff to look flawless on me. How do you love something that makes you look so incredibly bad?!
Pat Mcgrath Sublime Perfection Blurring Under-Eye Setting Powder launched almost a year ago this coming February along with her Sublime Perfection Concealer and I swear since that faith day in Febuary when I purchased it I’ve been trying to get this powder to work for me.
Once upon a time in a not so distant galaxy I never set my concealer with powder. I felt powder made me look dry and aged my eyes. But I found a good brush and I learned how a little powder goes a long way to creating a very smooth, flawless finish under my eyes when I used a tiny bit of banana shaded powder on top of my cream concealer. Some of my favorites include Ben Nye Banana Powder and Hard Candy Sheer Envy Bake, Brighten & Set Loose Finishing Powder. I use an old Bobbi Brown concealer brush to apply the powder. It sort of resembles a MAC 224 but it has a way shorter handle! It used to come packaged with the Bobbi Brown Concealer Duo.
Powder not only sets your concealer for all day wear but it also has the ability to really wake your eyes up. I think you need to find a good hydrating eye cream to use this method though if you have drier eyes.
I’ve been searching for a good serum slash eye cream combination for a while now to get Mother’s Sublime Perfection Blurring Under-Eye Setting Powder to look good under my eyes. I LOVE this stuff. It’s a smooth baked powder available in three shade selections. Medium is my perfect match! It’s very powdery but soft, finely milled, and ultra silky. It’s also quite pigmented and gives my eyes a super brightening look so I look like I got 12 hours of rest when I only got 5. The initial application is typically very good for me. It applies and blends flawlessly and it looks fabulous but within minutes it starts to crease really, really badly under my eyes and settles into my drier, finer lines and instantly ages me by ten years.
I mean, I think the good news is that if you’re twenty and aren’t dry this stuff is going to make you look like a goddess divine but someone older or someone with finer lines and drier skin, well, you’re going have to work a hell of a lot harder for that goddess look. I am still convinced I’ll somehow get this to work for me! I’ll keep trying until I hit pan because I really love the texture of this, the ease of application, and the way it looks the first few moments of application. It’s just the sad fact it starts to creep right into my finer lines after a few minutes that makes it a no go for me.
I’m sobbing in pain this failed to work for me.
