Under Eye Circles & HG Concealer

I don't know why i'm showing you my eye without concealer.
They are my biggest hate...& if i could change one thing about myself..(besdies my legs) it would be that i had no dark circles.
Unfortunately, it kindof runs in my family, so concealer is the only answer.

When i say i have tried loads of concealers under my eyes, that is somewhat of an understatement...

The one concealer to have ever proved just right, is ...
*Drum roll please*

Gosh Touch Up Concealer in No2


I know i have mentioned this alot in previous posts, and i have had many people asking me questions on it, and emailing me about it, so i thought it was about time i did a proper review on it.

I think what makes this concealer work so well (with my skintone anyway) is the fact it has a salmony undertone...obviously, orange cancels out blue, so the pinky-orange tone of the concealer works very well to disguise the blue under your eyes.
There is one other colour in the same range, which is shade 1, but this does not contain the same colour..so i can't say it would perform aswell. I also love the consistency of it, how easy it is to blend and the fact it has NEVER gone cakey, which so many concealers seem to do under my eyes.

I thought i would show you some before and after images to prove how much i love it...
I still can't believe i am showing you all this..haha


I know the last picture looks edited, but i promise i havent touched the brightness or the contrast, i think i was closer to the window..or the sun came out...might have to tilt your laptop screen haha

I love this stuff so much. I just find it covers the perfect amount. If the concealer is alot darker than your skintone, you can always use a touch of light reflecting concealer over the top lightly, i sometimes do this when im feeling particularly pale, or dark eyed.
My favourite under eye combo is this concealer with a touch of Benefit Erase Paste in no 1 on darker areas. I havent demonstrated that in the above photos though.

The concealer retails for around £6-7 & can be bought in Superdrug!

  5. I have been looking for a great concealer for a long time. I've been using MAC select-coverup for a while now and although it works well for me, I'm always on the lookout for a better one. I will definitely have to try this out! Thanks for sharing Zoe :)

  14. I will HAVE to give this a try! I'll need the lighter colour, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it works as well as the one you use. I inherited my dark circles from my mum, they run in my family too unfortunately!

  19. You don't seem to have dark circles at all to me.
    But the concealer looks good - seems to brighten up your skin a lot (not that it needs it).
    Thanks for posting. I'll have to go and check this product out xx

  30. LOVE this concealer and I have bought two tubes of the concealer so far and although the colouring is a little off for my with some powder or bronzer you barely notice. Now the one thing that concerned me is it gets kinda watery at times..has that happened to you? I guess you rather it watery then thick anc cakey I guess

    ReplyDelete
  31. That concealer looks impressive, definitely going to buy myself some! xxx

  32. I can't find this concealer anywhere, just wondered whether you still used it, or whether it has been discontinued? In which case which one do you use now? Aha, thanks!

  34. The next time I go shopping I will be buying this. My eyes are really similar to yours, and I hate it so much... I constantly look like ive been crying with the way my eyes are... and it's a big downer.. This product looked really good on you so fingers crossed it will work for me and make me look a little happier (:
