Clinique Airbrush Concealer in Medium Caramel

If you know me, you know my undereye dark circles are the demons in my beauty life. I’m always battling them.

A while back, I picked up this Clinique illuminating concealer. I wanted (and still want) the YSL version, but it’s incredibly expensive. I thought it would be a good idea to play around with the more affordable version.


It comes in a slim, silver capped tube.

The shade that works best for me is Medium Caramel.


It reminds me of the Stila Lip Glaze packaging, with a brush applicator you click product out of.



This is how I use it:

1) Prep the undereye area with eye cream

2) Apply Bobbi Brown corrector in Dark Peach.

3) Tap e.l.f Undereye Powder over that.

4) Apply a little bit of Clinique Airbrush Concealer on top and blend to cover the dark area.

This looks a little too highlighted for me, but in photos my dark circles are gone! I went to a friend’s baby shower and took some photos. For the first time since I was 7, I didn’t look tired or sleep-deprived in a photo. I think this is great for that purpose. In person, however, this looks a touch too pale on me.

It also settles into fine lines. I’m going to use it up but I think I’ll spring for the YSL illuminator next.

This costs $20.50 at Sephora. When I purchased it, it was $17.50.

    I just remembered how much I miss YSL Touche Eclat! I splurged on it once and somehow never repurchased it although it is really good!

    I will have to check out this Clinique version- I can always use some less tired looking face!

  2. Yay, a vote for Touché Éclat!
