Picking out concealers can be a bit frustrating when there are thousands to choose from. Not only do you have drug store concealers but then you have all of the high end concealers that people rave about everyday. I have been sucked into the world of concealer experimentation! I’ve tried so many concealers in hopes that I would be able to find my one and only holy grail product, that I would love forever and ever but let me tell you it took a lot of testing until I finally found it! I thought I had found the one when I bought my M.A.C studio finish concealer but as time passed I realized it was amazing but my love for it was fading. I wanted to fall in love with a new concealer all over again.
Now let me begin by telling you about my under eyes. I don’t really have problems with dark circles but I am still obsessed with a bright under eye. I mean who isnt? right. Everyone wants that Kardashian highlight under their eyes…or maybe it’s just me? well, i digress. The skin under my eyes is extremely sensitive and lately it was becoming dry and irritated more than usual. Since I was getting dry patches and little baby rashes under there, my M.A.C studio finish concealer was just sticking to the dry patches and I was looking type crazy. I did a little research and decided that I needed a hydrating concealer. Trust me, I tried everything in the market! Most of the one’s I tried (which I shall not mention because I don’t really like bashing products) were either drying but covered everything including my dry patches, or they would settle into my fine lines and wrinkles. so frustrating. I couldn’t find anything that was of thick consistency and long lasting but hydrating enough that it wouldn’t irritate my skin. Then one morning I walked into Ulta determined to find something and Wah la! there it was! Tarte had just come out with their new Maracuja Line that was supposed to be hydrating. I tried a little sample of it and loved the consistency then I read that it was waterproof and it was like love at first sight!
