Concealer is one make up item that I just can’t imagine going without. I use it daily and because of this, using one that gets the job done well, that is, conceals and/or brightens without creasing, is imperative. Nothing is more ageing that fine lines creeping up around your eyes!
I believe I have found concealers that tick all the boxes (Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer & MAC Pro Longwear Concealer) but I still like trying out new ones when possible. This brings me to the last one I’ve tried out, which is the E.l.f Under Eye Concealer & Highlighter.
Packaging: The packaging for this comes in two parts – a concealer on one end, and a highlighter on the other. Both parts come off easily by twisting the tub off, leaving the applicator intact with the middle part of the packaging.
Application: Both the concealer and highlighter are super easy to apply. They both blend in effortlessly and cover reasonably well.
Texture: To give you a better idea, this product is a lot lighter in consistency to Nars and Mac concealers (as mentioned earlier) and don’t cover as much, however this still does a very good job. I also love how this doesn’t crease at all. I just find it’s important to set this with a good powder. Not only will this make it last longer, but I feel it needs it as the coverage is quite light.
Cost: As with all E.l.f products, these are very affordable. Just one of these costs only £3.95/€5.50, so there’s really nothing to lose is there?! I got mine from Eyeslipsface.co.uk.
Verdict: I really like this and will definitely be buying it again. It may not be my favourite under eye concealer, as I do prefer a thicker consistency, however it works very well and doesn’t crease. The concealer conceals reasonably well and the highlighter is very effective and brightens the under eye area nicely. Definitely one worth trying for the price that it is.
