By now you have probably heard about the new BECCA Under Eye Brightening Corrector, yes? This is yet again another product I had been hearing a lot about online so I decided to try it out for myself. When I went to buy it on the Sephora site though, it was sold out. Then the next day it was back in stock so I quickly snatched it up!
Here is what they say about the paraben and fragrance free product:
This full-coverage crème corrector completely eradicates under eye darkness by brightening and evening skin tone. Truly unique in color and formula, BECCA Under Eye Brightening Corrector is backlighting for your concealer.Infused with ultra-fine light-reflecting illuminators, this rich, luminescent crème won’t settle into fine lines or wrinkles and preps skin for smooth, even concealer coverage.
Concern: Dullness, Dark Circles, Dark Spots
Skin type: All
It comes in a very pretty glass jar with a rose gold lid, which quite frankly is hard to resist!
First off I want to talk about the consistency. It’s thick but not the kind of thick that feels super heavy. It’s creamy but not so creamy that it immediately creases into fine lines around the eyes. It’s a nice peachy shade which does a really good job of disguising dark areas under the eye and it definitely brightens up the whole eye area.
As I have said about 2,738 times on this blog, my #1 problem with anything under my eye is the settling into wrinkles issue. It happens with most products for me, some much worse than others. It did happen with this one too, but it wasn’t until hours of wear and it was very minimal settling. I just barely tapped the areas with my ring finger and it smoothed out. It also helps it last if you use a light, illuminating powder over it – the ONLY powder I ever use under my eye is Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder.
You can either use this by itself or with a concealer over or under it. For me I try and keep products to a minimum under my eye because the more that’s there, the older and more “crepe-y” my skin tends to look. You can use a brush to apply it or do like I do and pat it on with a finger. I always apply MAC Fast Response Eye Cream before anything goes under my eye because that also helps it apply more smoothly, and the hydration helps hide fine lines.
Do you have problem dark circles? What product do you like best for hiding them?
