Thanks to my ultra-thin skin, I have been cursed with hideous undereye circles for as long as I can remember and now my constant hunt for the next best concealer has led me to NYX Concealer In A Jar, a product that is often featured on other beauty blogs and YouTube videos.
You ladies know how much I *adore* the HD Invisible Cover Foundation so when I first found out in March that a Make Up For Ever HD Invisible Cover Concealer was coming this fall, I was more than psyched!

So I have already gone through the Basic Rules On How To Apply Concealer and the Different Tools You Can Use with you ladies. Now here is a brief tutorial on how to apply concealer to camouflage those nasty undereye circles that we all hate.
Before you start, figure out where your circles are by tilting your head down and looking into a mirror. For most people, it starts from the inner corner of the eye right by the nose.
Step 1. Apply a creamy concealer onto circles and dark areas. Since I am not wearing foundation here, I am using more concealer than needed to show a better effect.
For liquid concealer, apply three tiny dots of the product starting from the inner corner of the eye.
During my most recent trip to Boots, I can’t help but have my eye on the new Bourjois Imperfection Concealer ($15). With a cute leopard print packaging and a built-in mirror on the cap for easy touch-ups, how can you not?! But other than the cute packaging, this concealer is a very average product.
Yes the “melt-on-the-skin formula” gives it a creamy, blendable texture but the coverage is far from enough to eradicate my undereye circles. The color selection also sucked. There are only two shades available – a pink-based beige and a golden-based beige both in light shades – so if you do not fall under those two shades, you will not be able to find a match.
Save your money for something else! There are definitely better products out there at this price.
Because of its £3.50 (~$7) price tag and the tacky-looking display, I swear I must have walked past Concealer by Barbara Daly for Tesco (£3.50) at least a million times without even noticing its existence. Thank God I read the last issue of Marie Claire in which a beauty editor RAVED about this because believe it or not, this is definitely one of the best and cheapest concealers out there!
After my Giorgio Armani makeover at Selfridges, I ended up bringing home a few products with me, one of which is the High Precision Retouch ($35).
