Hi there beauties! I know its been a while since I had any reviews but life just gets busy some times. If you’d like to follow my personal blog to see what I’ve been up too I”ll link it at the end of this post.. I am back now and happy I am. I’m going to try and post a product review each day. If you read back in some of my old posts you’ll understand that the products I review probably aren’t the newest thing but that’s how I roll. I like to review products that I actually like, use, enjoy and may have a few thrown in I’m not so happy with. And sometimes there are others who haven’t seen a certain product before despite how long it may have been out in the market. So, with that said, let’s get onto todays review!
Sorry the photo is so blurry. Not sure what happened there!
I am 44 years old and unfortunately it seems my skin is aging faster than I’d like. Has to do with health issue’s and I’m sure environmental ones as well. Be that as it may, I have extremely dry, crapey skin under my eyes. I think I have tried every concealer under the sun and everything creased, was drying, looked cakey. One day I was in Ulta on a mission to find something, anything! that wouldn’t do any of the above on my very dry under eyes. I asked the very nice sales girl and she pointed me to the
Tarte Maraguja Creaseless Concealer. She even let me try it out. She kept telling me “it wouldn’t crease” in my head I’m thinking “yep, sure, just like all the others say they won’t but eh, I’ll humor her and try it”.. Jokes on me!.. It actually works! It does not crease under my eyes at all..
So let me list the pros and cons as I see them for you.
Pros : Full coverage, applies nicely, great packaging, a little goes a long, long, way, feels nice on the skin, hydrating.
Cons: A tad pricey at $24.00 US 0.28oz (Ulta). This product claims to be long wearing. Not so much for me. It also claims to be full coverage which it is but because it has oil in it once you put it on don’t touch it or it will rub right off. It also claims to be waterproof but I honestly can not understand how that could even be remotely possible. I will say though, if you use a setting powder it does stay on for quite a long time. The problem I have and it’s my problem not a problem with the product is that putting any kind of powder under my eyes after applying concealer if sort of like taking a fish out of water, throwing it on a hot beach and watching it shrivel up. I will take a minute amount of powder (need to find a super finely milled powder, any suggestions?) to set it because this must be set with a powder and honestly even on my crinkly eyes it doesn’t look half bad.
Conclusion: Although pricey and I have issue’s with dryness regardless of the hydration of this product, I am sticking with it. I really do like the formula, I like the way it feels and it actually looks good on me.
So, any of you have any suggestions on a very finely milled setting powder? Remember, I”m 44 not 24 🙂
See you next time!
