So, manicured hands up who has dark circles that even YSL Touche Eclat can't hide?
I am one of those people, I don't know if it's an age thing (because my dark circles have only recently got worse) or if it's because I am mixed race and I have darker pigmentation or something (considering I am very pale without my Nars Casino Bronzer)!!! I sleep way over the average 8 hours a night, I must admit I don't drink much water. Jen T did suggest drinking green tea helps (haven't got round to trying that yet).
So anyway, I have tried a range of undereye concealers, the light reflective ones (eg, Touche Eclat) and the concealer sort (which are generally more creamy and thicker because they actually cover up the dark circles). I always use Bobbi Brown's (one of my favourite brands and one I have been using since I was a teenager) concealer kit which comes in a great little pot with the concealer in the top and loose powder underneath to set the concealer (see pic).
However, I have recently re-discovered one of THE best concealers for dark circles, it's another Bobbi Brown product and it's called the correcter; http://www.bobbibrown.co.uk/templates/products/sp.tmpl?CATEGORY_ID=CAT6087&PRODUCT_ID=PROD72645
It comes in a range of colours from Porcelain Bisque to Deep Bisque (my colour is peach). It is designed to be used under the concealer kit but this morning I didn't even need to use it once I had applied the corrector. I loved how natural it looked and it blended in with my skin tone rather than having two extra light panda circles!
Did I mention that I was considering having mesotherapy injections in my undereyes until I used my corrector this morning? Thank you for saving me £350 Bobbi Brown.What's also handy is the cute packaging with the little mirror (see pic).
So, a huge round of applause to Bobbi Brown for inventing the 'star product of the week'.
Who or what product do you think will be honoured with 'star product of the week' next time? Answers on fb's wall please.
