Yeah, I have dark circles under my eyes. I have a hard time falling asleep daily and as a result, I usually haven’t had enough sleep. As a result, I use concealer under my eyes regularly – in fact, my undereyes are the place where I use the most concealer!
I’ve tried a lot of different concealers to hide my dark circles, and I tend to gravitate towards ones with high coverage. I’ve tried color correctors before, most notably the famous Bobbi Brown one, but I didn’t find that they really erased my dark circles.
That being said, I really don’t know why I picked up the NYX Dark Circle Concealer in light. I don’t like concealers in pots and I swatched it but I didn’t feel that it was pigmented. I’m glad that I did!
What it does: (from the NYX website)
A serious solution for one of beauty’s most challenging problems! No fancy names just a product that can be counted on to do the job. The product glides on without looking thick or obvious. The subtle hint of orange counteracts the appearance of dark circles while natural skin-toned pigments work in unison to provide the ultimate coverage.
What I thought:
I don’t get how this works! The product is very thin and spreads evenly. It doesn’t seem to be very pigmented, but somehow it cancels my dark undereye area! I like to use a small brush to apply it, and then I tap it with my fingers. This seems to be better than using a brush or sponge to blend it.
This was an unexpected find. I’m so glad that I tried it!
