This is my second time purchasing a brightening concealer. I used Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector before and just found myself to really like that type of product as an addition to my regular concealer.
The issue I had with the Becca product was the fact that I found it to be too emollient and it looked very “wet” under my eyes. I always had to set it with powder in order for it to appear natural on my skin. I was hoping I would not have the same problem with this product from Benefit.
First of all, the price tag is lower. Benefit costs 30CAD vs Becca 43CAD.
Just like with Becca, I got the lightest shade for the Benefit product. To the touch it does not seem as emollient nor does it feel as tacky under my eye as the Becca product.
The product itself has a pretty strong pink undertone which works perfectly on my fair skin. It applies very creamy and with ease, I have no issues blending it out under my eyes. One thing I noticed though – make sure you take the time to blend it into the skin well because if not – it can slightly stand out against your skin tone.
The product itself brightens under my eye very well, though not as bright as the Becca one. However, I am willing to compromise with that if it means not having a “wet” looking under eye. As I wrote previously – I set this product with powder but I don’t need to do it. I can just let it be and it will stay on well throughout the day. With Becca, I HAD to set it, otherwise it just looks weird.
Overall, I am happy to have picked this up and I have been using this product daily, it became essential in my make up routine.
Do you have a go-to under eye corrector? Would love to get any recommendations!!!
