Why is finding a concealor for the undereye area so damn hard? My current concealor is the MAC Studiosculpt, which is great coverage but tends to crease and accentuate fine lines underneath my eyes. After reading lots of rave reviews about this product I decided to give it a go.

This concealor is a very opaque and covers up dark circles and discoloration quite well. It’s quite long lasting, which is an advantage especially if you find that your concealor disappears on you during vigorous activities (such as merrymaking)

Unfortunately, I’m having a bit of trouble making this concealor work for me. It has a fairly dry, hard texture which is difficult to spread and I end up tugging the delicate skin under my eyes more than I would like. It also cakes and accentuates my fine lines like crazy.

I think the problem is my dry skin. I really need to find a super hydrating eye cream and prep the eye area before using this.

As for wearing this to bed as an anti wrinkle treatment- I find the idea of wearing concealor to bed a little ridiculous. I find it unlikely that this has higher levels of vitamin C, E, A then you might find in a good eye cream- and you’d end up smearing concealor on your pillow.
Have you tried this product? Does this work for you, and if so, do you have any tips to make it work?
