Just before I started Blogmas I showed you my Cult Beauty Haul and the awesome Best of 2018 Goody Bag that came with that order. Today I am reviewing the Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector Concealer that came in the Goody Bag. It’s a product I’ve had on my wishlist for a while now but I wasn’t sure if it was going to work properly, so I didn’t just want to spend my bucks on it. Perfect that it came in the Goody Bag!
Here’s a little throwback at the amazing Cult Beauty Goody Bag. You can have a closer look with a little haul and review, here.
The jar contains 4,5 grams / 0,16 oz of product. The corrector is available in two shades: Light to Medium (the shade I’ve got) and Medium to Dark.
The product is a thick, peachy colored paste. It’s a very thick and sticky concealer. The bright peach color is known for brightening dark circles. Also, because of the thick consistency, the product will probably also cover the darkness under the eyes up pretty well. You can already see in this swatch that it covers the color of my veins completely.
I am wondering how the gloss like shine of this product will look under the eyes. Shine in a product is known for enhancing the texture/presence of something. That’s why you highlight the parts of your face that you want to be seen, that would stand out naturally.
This is my face without any products on it. I just applied some moisturizer and eye cream but both already sank into my skin.
On these pictures, I am wearing the Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector Concealer in Light to Medium under my left eye (which is the right eye in the pictures).
You can tell that my under eye there is so much brighter and the bag seems to be less deep. You can also see the shininess of the product well, but it actually just makes my under eye look more healthy I think!
I applied two layers of the product with my finger. It really had to be warmed up on my hand so it was easy to apply. I pressed it under my eye and blended it into my skin by tapping the product. I find that I still need two or three layers of product to make it cover up the darkness under my eye completely and layering the product does make the product feel heavy and sticky. The more warm the product gets, the easier it is to spread; at some point it was gliding around a bit too much so I had to remove some with a wipe from my nose.
I applied concealer (Revolution Conceal & Define in C3) under both my eyes. It was easy to apply and blend the concealer on top of the Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector.
At this point, the difference between my left and right eye were starting to shrink. However, you can still tell that there’s less under eye ‘shadow’ where I am wearing the Becca corrector as well.
With the concealer on top I could feel well how ‘heavy’ the corrector made it all. I don’t wear foundation because I don’t like how heavy and sticky it feels on my skin. The Becca corrector has the same feel to it but then even more thick. Therefore, I don’t like how this product feels on the skin.
For the last step I setted both sides with the MAC Patrick Starrr Setting Powder. This is the step that let the differences between with and without the Becca corrector fade almost completely.
The only tiny difference I still see is that the part without the Becca corrector shows the slightest bit of dark circles through the concealer and powder, but in my opinion that’s a negligible difference, when I take the feel of this product under my eyes into consideration.
The Becca corrector really has to be set (or at least for my preferences) because of how sticky and thick it is, so skipping the powder step is not an option for me. I also always set my concealer under the eyes so setting powder is an essential step in my make-up routine.
So! My final thoughts are that this Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector Concealer in Light to Medium does what it has to do and if you like a full beat and you’ve got serious dark circles, I think you will probably like this product. However, for me this product does not make enough of a difference that a concealer on it’s own can’t make. Add the sticky and heavy feeling of this and it’s a no from me! 🙂
How do you like to cover up any dark circles?
