I was incredibly lucky to receive a very generous package from one of my favourite brands!!
These concealers contain nourishing and clean ingredients including natural Avocado Oil which helps hydrate, nourish, and soften the skin. Caffeine to help diminish the appearance of undereye puffiness and dark circles. Mushroom Extract to boost skin’s moisture content which helps the skin appear more plump and smooth and Vitamin E which is rich in antioxidants to help condition and soothe the skin and fight off environmental aggressors.
I have been loving this concealer for five months now and I can say with certainty that I love the formula! I instantly fell in love with the flat doe-foot applicator, the ultra hydrating formula, and the light, non-cakey way it wears on my skin and under my eyes. I would describe this as medium coverage that is really easy to build up and blends easily with a brush or a sponge.
I often find that most concealers will either look way too dry under my eyes, or extremely cakey and or crease like crazy. All of the above is a major no no when it comes to concealer formulas for me. Sometimes when I want extra coverage, or if I want my concealer to be a touch matte, I will place this under my eyes, then add a few dabs a little lower of a matte concealer formula, being sure to stay away from directly under my eyes. If you have issues with your under eyes looking dry, try this technique. It works wonders for me!!!
If you are looking to wear this concealer all over your face, I feel it would be better suited to those with normal – dry skin as it is very hydrating. I have combo / oily skin so I do need to use a light hand and set it with powder when I use it on my face. However, I never set it with a powder on my under eyes. This would truly be heaven on normal to dry skin!! I always prefer a concealer that is hydrating and nourishing under my eyes so this truly is a good match for me!!
In the summer months I use the shades 3 & 4, and in the winter months, I use the shades 2 & 3. I really enjoy shade number 3 because it has a salmon undertone which helps to cancel out darkness and acts as a colour corrector under my eyes. I like to use this colour specifically in the darkest part of my under eye.
I use shade 5 & 6 to cream contour, which I then set with a powder bronzer, and the outcome looks SO healthy and natural!! Again, if you have normal to dry skin, you probably wouldn’t need to set it and I bet it would look incredible as well!
They also sent me their new Hello FAB Kona Eye Stick which I have been LOVING! It is a 3-in-1 treatment stick that hydrates, primes, and depuffs the eyes. Its infused with superfood Kona Coffee to diminish the appearance of puffiness and dark circles and also contains aloe water and cucumber which Instantly cools on contact. I use it almost every single day and I often use this to help wake up my eyes in the morning in the place of an eye cream.
I have been using First Aid Beauty products for many years now, which I have purchased myself except for two packages that they have sent me. I am a huge fan of the brand, and what they stand for and I will continue to purchase their products for years to come!
