I am always on the hunt for an under eye concealer that can cover the bags, give off a somewhat ' I got some sleep last night' look and of course something that doesn't feel heavy or cakey under the eyes. Today I have a review of the new Barry M Light Reflecting Concealer in the shade light.
I picked this up on a total whim. I was browsing the new section on the boots website and seen this on offer for buy one Barry M item and get one half price, already having a Barry M nail polish in my cart I thought why not, it would have been rude not to right? I picked up the shade light, there are 3 shades in the range and to be honest after googling online there ain't much difference in all 3 shades. As I wanted this as a under eye highlighter. brightener I went with the first shade and with the worry in my mind it might be orange I went with the lightest.
This concealer is the bomb, it ticks all the boxes, first off it is super light weight which I love, you wouldn't even know you had it on. Next it does what is says on the tin, it light reflects in a super flattering way. One stroke of this under the eye and you are sure to look more awake and a lot fresher. Now for coverage its defiantly not full coverage but it does cover up dull areas well if you have a serious dark under eye area it might not be for you but I think it gives off a good amount of coverage.
The staying power is also great even in the hot weather we have been having lately this has held up with no creasing or going cakey. The concealer itself is very hydrating and enriched with aloe and cucumber so perfect to soothe out the skin and of course good for drier skin ladies. The shade Light is very light so pale gals this one is for you, It gives me a nice bright affect so any paler than me would defiantly get away with this. Bad news is that anyone darker than a Mac NW(C)30 I think this would run way too light for you.
For me this concealer is a winner, it holds up great throughout the day, covers dark areas under the eyes and brightens the skin to make you look fresher and more awake and it's super lightweight on the skin. I would rate this 4/5 as I love it, the only downside is the wand, I just don't like it but I can get over it. So if your in the market for an affordable concealer then this one is for you.
Barry M Light Reflecting Concealer retails for €6.99 / £4.49
