The quest to diminish dark circles!

As you know I hate my dark circles and am always trying to find new products which actually work and do what they claim! I've been using these 2 products both from Estee Lauder for over a week now and genuinely love them both, I'm so impressed with their new concealer Double Wear stay-in-place flawless wear concealer. I posted about their new concealer the other week so you can catch up here.

Light/Medium is perfect for me, it's not to light and not orangey toned either, the formula is exactly what I've been looking for. This concealer gives good coverage and covers up well, I use this for my dark circles and have used this over my blemishes. I like how the formula doesn't look heavy or cakey on the skin and lasts all day. It took me ages to get the swatch off my hand below, this believe me ladies this concealer has staying power. The concealer does contain a SPF10 which is always much appreciated but if you're having you're photos taken then beware because anything containing an SPF does tend to glow white.

I normally dab twice over the top of my foundation and then gently blend/tab on the area being careful. I feel so much better and more confident knowing this really helps conceal my flaws and doesn't look like I have a pile of makeup on. I definitely give this concealer the thumbs up and recommend you have a look next time you're in town. The concealer comes in 8 shades which is promising and costs £19.00 which is well worth it considering how much you actually use and how good a product is. I think there's a product which we would all pay money for and for me a concealer and foundation is one of them.

I will be posting about the Idealist Cooling eye illuminator separately because it deserves a post all to itself it's that good! So check back real soon to read about it.
