About a month ago, I purchased a Make Up Forever concealer at a Sephora store in Toronto. I heard so many good reviews on Makeup Alley, so I decided to give it a try
I was very excited to use it. Since it came in many shades. I applied the second shade from the right, then I applied a lighter shade under the eyes area. I didn't use the lightest shade they offer, it was way too light for me. It brightened up my dark circles right after I applied the concealer. I was very happy with it (for like 10 mins). Then I set it with a face power. Sometimes, I applied face primer before applying the concealer to cover some visible lines (I have a few...bummer).
And after 10 mins or so, the concealer started to settle into the creases under my eyes. I tried to blend it, but it wasn't that easy although the texture was creamy. I even applied moisturizer before applying the concealer, but it will crease no matter what I do. Plus it was cakey and made the lines under my eyes became more visible :(
Three hours later, it melted off (in Winter!). I ended up looking horrible using the concealer than without it. This product is just not for me! I'm still hunting for the perfect under eyes concealer!
