Remember last week I was talking about my first drugstore foundation buy in a little while? Well, this is my first drugstore concealer buy in years. I struggled to find a concealer that worked for me for so long - went without for ages, then tried MAC, then settled on Bobbi Brown - but I've hear good things about the Bourjois Healthy Mix Concealer (£7.49) so I grabbed one in Shade 52.
I know, every time I talk about foundation or base products in general, I moan about shade range. But really? I think it's important. This concealer comes in three shades, none of them suitable for darker skin.
This concealer performs really well. Yet again my expectations have been surpassed, performance-wise, by Bourjois. You need literally the tiniest amount, and you can either pat on or blend with a brush, and this will brighten, lighten and conceal your underye bags.
The before and after shots show this - although on closer inspection I need to blend out at the corner - and it wears! It wears pretty much for about six hours without starting to fade, I found. Around the nose and so on it could be a little drying - I find that exfoliating and moisturising there would help, but for undereyes this made me look more awake and concealed my blemishes too.
I really like this concealer. Have you ever tried it?
