Finding the right concealer is always a challenge for me, same with finding the right mascara. I've always been wanting to conceal my undereye circles as I've been a nerd all my school years so now, I'm paying the price.
As seen from my Sunday haul. I've bought Smashbox Camera Ready Full Coverage Concealer and as promised, I'll do a review on this based on my own experience.
Here's what Smashbox says ---
Dark circles and blotchy spots are a thing of the past with our fabulous new concealer that contains a soft focus powder to brighten skin and help minimize imperfections. The innovative formula contains Vitamin C to fight free radicals which age the skin. Provides natural yet buildable coverage on any area of the face.

Here's me trying out the concealer --
Pardon my eyes, I just came back from work with a remnants of e/s 12hrs ago, I cleaned the undereye area and here's how my bags and undereye circles look like
I applied this Camera Ready Full Coverage Concealer no. 3 (a.k.a. Medium Vanilla) directly to my skin under the eyes
I used a concealer brush to blend GENTLY making sure not to pull my skin
Then, I pat the area with a powder to set
Here's how it looks like for easier comparison
- it did lighten up my dark circles (of course the puff is still there, that's a job of a cucumber and sleeping early! hehehe)
- it is indeed easy to blend and I left it that way for more than 30 minutes and I didn't have any allergic reaction (FYI, I had a very bad eye allergy last year and my eyes got SWOLLEN not from cosmetics but from an eye drop)
For now, I found none, I'll give it a more detailed investigation (ahem, CSI) hahaha and if I have any changes or any updates, I'll let you guys know
Will I purchase again?
maybe, give me some try to use it more :D
