Price: $17 US, $24 CAD (darn you, Sephora!)
What’s great: A little goes a long way with this stuff, and it covers all day long. It comes with a little sponge if you choose to use it (I don’t – I don’t think they’re hygienic at all, so I took mine out. However, if you’re a little less OCD, it’s great to use on-the-go!) Additionally, it doesn’t smell horrid, which is always lovely. The coverage is fantastic as well, disusing anything from dark circles to acne.
What’s not so great: Um… I got nothin’. This may crease on you if it’s not properly set, but a light layer of powder should solve that!
Edited to add: I’ve been working on my little jar for over a year now, and with daily use for concealing acne, redness, eyelid veins, and undereye circles, it’s not even half gone.
Other stuff: Lighter Than Light works just fine under my eyes, which is where we tried in on in-store, but when I do have to conceal elsewhere, it’s a touch too warm. However, it’s not enough of a difference to make me leave my darling timeBalm! If it’s particularly obvious on any given day, I’ll just set with minerals to tone it back.The verdict: I absolutely adore this — the coverage is excellent, the cream stays creamy, even after a year (and especially in the summer,) and it lasts all day long. (For a normal workday, at least. I’d say it starts to go around ten hours or so.) Definitely recommended!
