Becca's New Concealer Has Light Reflecting Pigments So Seeya Eye Bags
I'm forever chasing a concealer that makes my skin look as dewy and flawless as possible. Recently, I've benched my favourite stretchy concealer to test out Becca's new Light Shifter Brightening Concealer ($46) and let me tell you I was not disappointed!
Lets talk about the formula
Unlike your thicker concealer formulas that are designed to help to cover up breakouts, this BECCA concealer is formulated to be lightweight, stretchy and buildable (read: perfect for those who suffer from dark under-eye circles). It's loaded with brightening ingredients like hyaluronic acid, crystalised licorice and green tea that all work to illuminate the area and increase hydration. It's light shifting pigments mean that when light lands on your high-points it gives the illusion of a subtle dewy shine, reflecting the light, rather than a mattified coverup.
When applying any concealer to your under-eye area you should always dab in the product, never swipe or push the product around. This concealer pen has a fluffy ballpoint head so you can dab it onto the skin. If you're looking to cover dark circles, start are the corners of your eye and dab product along the lash line and down into an upside down triangle shape. Once your product is in place, take your ring finger and gently press and blend the concealer into your skin. The warmth of your finger will help the product settle quicker and the ring finger is the softest touch meaning it's gentler on the eye area than a brush.
My personal thoughts
While I don't used this concealer to cover up any Saturn sized hormonal blemishes (cheers, period), I love it as an alternative to my regular under-eye concealer. It doesn't cake in my creases and blends nicely into my skintint. Plus, it's super simple to take on the go and re-apply as I need it during the day. I've also noticed the little boost of hydration my eye bags are receiving from the hyaluronic acid, which has given my eye bags some much needed loving.
So what's it going to set you back?
It comes in at a cool $46, which might feel pricey but when you estimate the cost per wear (and once you try it) it's totally worth it.
