It is obvious that as soon as MUA launched their new 'Undress your skin' range I would order some new things to try and test out.
One of the goodies I grabbed was the new Radiant Under Eye Concealer. I paid £2 because it is on an introductory offer, normal price is £3 so still really affordable. You can get yours here.
The concealer comes in a white, plastic 'pen' with a twist up bottom [have I already mentioned how I love their new white packaging...!]
What MUA say about this new product:
"Undress your Skin Radiant Under eye Concealer banishes dark circles and signs of fatigue with it’s light weight formula that contains light-diffusing particles to create a radiant glow and awaken dull tired skin. The concealer is suitable for use on all skin tones and is a makeup bag essential!"
The concealer itself is skin coloured and has tiny shimmery particles which catch the light (but in a good way).
To use, you simply twist the bottom and then use the brush to apply the concealer - then blend with your ring finger or a concealer brush.
It has a medium coverage but is quite buildable without giving off cake-y results.
I have been using this for the past 3 days and it starts to fade after about 6-8 hours of wear (with powder) - but I do have oily skin so most probably it will have better staying power on persons with dry to normal skin. But still, 6-8 hours is normal for concealers (on my oily skin).
The only downside that I can think of is that it only comes in 1 shade: radiance. Even though MUA say that it is suitable on all skin tones, I do doubt that this will work for darker skinned ladies [or even myself when I'm really tanned during Summer].
That being said, I do think that this concealer is a lovely buy though I'm not sure how well it would work for covering blemishes and spots, since this is originally an undereye concealer.
Most probably I will just pop this concealer in my bag to use after a long day at university or after a sleepless night.
