So I have a seriously bad relationship with my undereyes. It's not that I don't try, it's just well no matter what I do they always seem to remain shadowed.

Well not always... I've found a couple of products that assist me (providing that is that I have been getting some sleep and have ample amount of time for precise makeup application).

The Illamasqua Under-eye Concealer is one of these. I first bought this about 12 - 18months ago when chatting to the utterly divine MUA at the Manchester Trafford centre. I reckon you will know which one I mean if you've ever been there. She looks like a princess!

Anyway, I digress.

So the Under-eye Concealer, yes. It retails at £13.00 which I think is pretty reasonable for a premium makeup brand.

Now what I like about this Concealer is it's coverage. It's not sheer, in fact it's quite heavy, but provided you use an appropriate base it will go on like a dream. Then dust a little powder on top and you're ready to go!

I initially used to use this with Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat on top, however I found that sometimes it would end up making me look a bit too bright around the eyes. So when I recently rediscovered it I did so by applying Bobbi Brown's corrector in Bisque underneath. This leaves me with a brighter under-eye without it highlighting the dark circles, which happens pretty easily when your undereyes are like mine!

Overall I think this is a fabulous product and certainly recommend it as it works better than and is much cheaper than some of the more expensive brands out there!

  1. I always found that Bobbi Brown's corrector gets really good reviews but it is so expensive! And Illamasqua's concealers have been getting lots of good reviews, definitely turning to this for my next undereye concealer :) Thanks for the review!

  2. I was eyeing this up the other day and hoping somebody would review it, so thank you! My shadows are always bad (my bf was watching me do my make-up and insisted I'd dropped black shadow under my eyes...it was just dark circles!) so I'm always on the look out for something decent to hide them :)
