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.
