Product Review | Becca Cosmetics Under Eye Brightening Corrector
Product Review | Becca Cosmetics Under Eye Brightening Corrector ($30, Sephora) : This color correcting, under eye brightener works to eradicate under eye darkness by brightening and evening skin tone. It preps skin for smooth, even concealer coverage and doesn’t settle into fine lines or wrinkles. Infused with ultra-fine light-reflecting illuminators, this rich, luminescent cream is like backlighting for your concealer, adding light from behind. Full-coverage. Smooth, Brightened Finish. Paraben Free.
I recently watched Kerri Cole, Becca's Director of Global Marketing talk about their first ever Becca Vox Box for Influenster and this was one of the products that she talked about in terms of how Becca has been making products since the beginning that targets the complexion. After hearing her informative interview, I was convinced to buy more Becca products and this is one that made it high on the list. I have a few concealers that I use and like such as Too Faced Born This Way, Urban Decay Weightless Concealer and every now and then I use my Tarte Shape Tape Contour Concealer. The problem with concealers in general, at least in my opinion having very little blemishes to conceal, is that it adds another layer of makeup on my skin that is unnecessary. I mainly use it to brighten my under eye area, nothing else. Even then, I do not need a lot of product to brighten underneath the eyes. I do not like the feel of layered makeup such as foundations and any other cream or liquid product.
Enter Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector. The packaging is a small but nice glass jar with a metal-feel dusty pink cover, which mimics that shade of the brightening corrector. It has 0.16 oz for the price of $30, which is expensive but worth it in my opinion. It is a creamy product with light-reflecting particles so when you first apply underneath the eye area, it looks very similar to a cream or liquid highlighter. I apply it after I put my face primer on, but before my foundation. Every since I have been using and applying it the way I do (prior to foundation), I have never used any of my trusted concealers. This magical potion really does the job of brightening the areas underneath the eye to make me look like I get more than 8 hours of sleep every single day. It does feel a little tacky when applied on the skin, but it is good because the product does not move when you blend your foundation over it. I seriously enjoy and love this product and it makes my daily makeup application easy and flawless. It may be too early to call it, but this product may have just made it to my "Holy Grail" list. Would I repurchase? 100%.
