Dark under-eye circles are the bane of most women’s existence, including Markeeta Waddington’s. Luckily, there’s a new product that promises to banish them for good – well, until you wash your face that night, anyway.
I can’t complain too much about my skin, but if there’s one thing I hate, it’s my under-eye circles. I’ve tried a few concealers but never really found “the one”, so when the new Charlotte Tilbury Magic Away Liquid Concealer arrived on my desk, I was keen to see if it actually worked.
What it’s all about
This particular concealer has been years in the making as Charlotte has been trying to come up with the perfect formulation to reduce the appearance of dark circles, pigmentation, redness, blemishes and imperfections in one swipe.
To separate it from other concealers, Charlotte Tilbury decided to infuse some unique ingredients in her formulation.
It features Persian silk tree bark extract, which has an interesting gummy texture and can help hide puffiness and fine lines.
The wand also features extract if wild indigo, which is a native Indian plant used in ayurvedic tradition, and gives skin a luminous sheen.
Apart from the ingredients, the applicator is specifically designed to blend and fit perfectly into under-eye angles.
Does it work?
Applying the concealer was definitely made simple with the spongey applicator and it blended easily with an extra dab from my fingertips.
The thing I liked best was the formulation. I’ve tried many concealers that cling to fine lines and cake in awkward places, but the Magic Away easily slides onto my skin.
And the moment we’ve all been waiting for, yes it covered up my dark circles and it stayed on all day with full coverage and no need for touch-ups.
Top tips for concealer application
Using the Magic Miracle Precision beauty blender applicator, apply on top of your Magic Foundation or Light Wonder to help reduce the appearance of blemishes, redness and pigmentation.
To brighten and lighten the appearance of the under-eye area, use a light shade of Magic Away. Tap gently with your ring finger to blend.
Magic Away Concealer is available in 16 shades, RRP $49.00 from Charlotte Tilbury.
