[unpaid/ad/sample/affiliate] I very rarely wear concealer although I do have dark circles and sallow tone so if I wanted to have a more uniform look to my skin, I should really. But, you get to a point where your complexion likes less not more and the skin under my eyes are a case in point. Just about everything I put under my eyes (other than foundation or tint) seeks out fine lines and settles there for the duration. I don’t mind having lines but I do mind deliberately exacerbating them. However, one of very few concealers I have ever found that doesn’t do this on me is Dior. The other that I can think of off the top of my head is L’Oreal True Match.
Dior makes a light feeling concealer that has enough fluidity that it doesn’t straight away go dry. It’s really critical for under the eyes (unless you are entirely line free) to have a formula where the powder and the fluid don’t separate on the skin. I think this is a nice blend – although if you have dryness under your eyes, nothing is fool proof in that respect. You can add in some serum to existing concealers to help them stay moist if you like.
You can see by the gloss on this that it’s moistureful but add more if you want to. The wand is a biggie and carries a lot of product on it so be careful you don’t over-load. I liked this on myself – it went on smoothly and didn’t immediately crinkle up my under eye skin which is totally a win. I noticed it stayed in one tiny patch but I put that down to it being a dry patch on me and not a reflection on the product which is super smooth. Otherwise, there was no issue even after a few hours wear. I also used it on redness round the sides of my nose – once again, a nice, medium coverage finish that took the redness right down which is all it was required to do.
