There are some products that you
just know you’ll love, even before you use them. The Becca Under Eye
Brightening Corrector is one of those, and after reading this post by Angela of The Sunday Chapter, I
just knew I had to add it to my collection. The full sized corrector is $50,
which is quite expensive and I held off on buying it as I figured I’d buy it
from the USA. Luckily for me, Sephora brought out the limited edition ‘Jet Set Prep and Prime Kit, which includes the
Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector, Backlight Priming Filter and First Light
Priming Filter so it was the perfect opportunity to try it out. This review
will focus primarily on the Under Eye Brightening Concealer (I plan to review the primers on a later post).
About: The Becca Under Eye Brightening
Corrector is a cream primer designed to eradicate darkness and blur imperfections. It helps to brighten, conceal and colour correct the eye area, thanks to ultra fine light reflecting illuminators.
My review: I’ve been using this
corrector from the day it arrived and I am officially in love. It makes the eye
area look so much brighter and livelier, and I’m not sure how I survived
without it for so long to be honest! Although it is a primer, I’ve been using
it as an under eye concealer and it works beautifully. It has a beautiful pink, pearly sheen to it, which works really well at neutralising dark circles.
While I typically don’t suffer from heavy
under eye circles, I do tend to have shadows under my eyes most days and this
product helps to eliminate them completely. I like to lightly pat the product
under my eyes and build it up. I find applying around two light layers is
sufficient to brighten the area up considerably. There is one small gripe I
have which is that the product settles into my fine lines. I am a smiley person
and have lots of crinkles around my eye when I smile/laugh so the first place
that product settles into are those annoying fine lines. I usually smooth them
over with my finger or a brush, but it’s something I thought I’d mention in
case you suffer from fine lines too. You are meant to set the concealer with a
powder however I happen to love the ‘dewy’ look and leave it as is. As for
longevity, I find it stays on for around 5-6 hours before it starts to fade.
Be warned that the travel sized
jar is tiny. I can barely fit my finger in, and if you have long nails beware;
I constantly end up with product underneath them. I highly recommend buying the
full sized jar as it is considerably bigger.
All in all, I am super impressed
with Becca’s Under Eye Corrector and cannot imagine my life without it. A tad
dramatic but it is truly worth the hype!
