Dark circles are something I’ve always suffered with and have struggled to hide, no matter what, they would always be apparent even through my make-up, until I tried this product by Becca.
Over a year ago I heard someone on YouTube talking about it, and although I wanted to try it I never did, purely because it is quite expensive at £24 which is almost €30 euros.
A number of months ago I was browsing Cult Beauty and discovered a set that contained two travel size primers and a travel size corrector, so I bought it because it was a great way for me to try three products at a cheaper price rather than one at a higher price.
This corrector comes in two shades; light to medium and medium to dark, I have the light one, which is a tiny bit too light but once I conceal etc. it’s fine and you don’t notice the lightness, what you do notice, well what I notice, is that my dark circles are diminished.
The first time I used this I noticed how less noticeable my dark circles were even through make up. When I first opened this, I expected the corrector to be thick and possibly difficult to work with, but I was pleasantly surprised by how creamy it actually it, how little of it I need and how easy it is to work with.
I love to use this with a round top eyeshadow brush, something like the Real Techniques Deluxe crease brush, which is a nice round dense brush that is small enough to work the product into my inner corner and just under the inner part of my under-eye area.
I find that brush to work very well with applying and buffing in the product leaving a streak free finish.
The corrector comes in a small glass jar with frosted glass, it’s very small and lightweight obviously as it is the travel size although I cannot imagine the full size being much bigger or heavier.
This is one product that I now couldn’t be without, although expensive, you use so little of it so it would last a while.
If you sign up to Cult Beauty and fill in their questionnaire you will get a code for 15% off which will help bring the price down. The set I got was priced at £20 but I ended up getting it for £17.
