My sister got me a new under eye concealer. Lately, I have been trying out different brands to see what works great on my eye bags and dark circles. I've tried good ones like the one from Clinique, but I wanna try some more and that's why I love that my sis got me this.

The shade that I have, no. 4, is pretty dark on my skin because my sister has tanned skin right now. It still looks fine when I wear it since I top it off with powder that's near to my skin color.
It's housed in a tube which is a preference of mine when it comes to liquids besides a pump-up bottle. It's hygienic and you can easily control the amount you dispense.
The product is a thick liquid but still easy to spread. I was surprised at how pigmented it is.
I even thought that it may be too thick for the under eyes... Anyway, check out how it works on my eyes...
Bare under eyes
With the product on
It easily concealed the dark circles which is great! I do wish that the concealer isn't dark so that it could have brighten my eyes more. It's not too visible on the pictures, maybe it's because of the lighting on my dressing table... The puffiness of my bags is still a problem though... but this has been there since I was born. Haha!
I've also tried this on my friend, Stacie, who I did a makeover on a month ago.

This really works great in concealing but I must advice you to have a well moisturized skin, especially on the under eye area before using this. This will surely make the dryness of the skin more visible. I have oily skin and I always apply eye cream before sleep and a thin layer before I apply makeup so I don't encounter any creases or caking. So yeah, this works great on me and I have no bad experience with it. If you have dry skin, better test it first at an LM counter to see how it will work on you. :)
