It’s not like I have big bags under my eyes, but I have problems with the skin around my eyes being very grey, especially on the arch of my nose. The skin just seems so … weak… it’s like it’s just thin paper or something… anyway. I like to cover this all up and have lovely eyes!
Let’s start with Benefit.
Mum bought this for me back when I was living in Japan. I’d seen my more wealthy friends at uni use Benefit products so I was really excited that *I* was able to own some too. It comes with a weird little spoon thing. It’s kinda hard to use. It’s pretty good at covering but it’s pretty thick too. This is what I’ve found with other Benefit products – that they are in general very thick and greasy. I’ve been using this for over a year now.. It does the job but it’s not amazing. Since it’s around €20 I’d expect a little more.
Now for Essence. This is my favourite brand here. I love it. This Forget It! 3 in 1 concealer costs about €3 and has a red section for under the eyes, beige as a concealer and green to correct redness. The red section works just as well as the Benefit product! At a fraction of the price! The green section I also use but it doesn’t blend so well. The concealer is pretty good but a little too thick, though not as much as Benefit.
People are always saying that I should spend more on products and that you get what you pay for. I really don’t think that’s true. Especially with Essence around – pocket money price and pretty awesome products. I’ll do more posts on what I use from them another time.
I have work today even though it’s a Saturday. I feel so passionately about this current product. I feel I am becoming the person I’ve always wanted to be. So I don’t mind in the slightest giving up a day sat in bed blogging for work!
