I mentioned a few weeks back that I would be sharing parts of my journey as I switch over to all-natural beauty products. As many of you have probably experienced, some products are easier to replace than others. Concealer was one of my first obstacles. The NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer was something I used everyday. The shade Vanilla could have been named Lauren because it matches my skin so well. The formula is creamy and hydrating, it blends brilliantly, and it works well both under eyes and to cover blemishes. Finding a natural alternative to live up to this is going to be a challenge.
I’ve tried a few samples from a variety of brands and ended up purchasing the Jane Iredale Active Light Concealer. The shade range is rather limited so I found the colour doesn’t match me as well, but it’s pretty close. I’m not a huge fan of the brush applicator, I feel like this isn’t the most sanitary option. However, the product itself is beautiful. All Jane Iredale products are skincare based and this concealer is no exception. It’s made with Vitamin K to help dark circles under the eyes as well as white tea and cucumber to soothe tired skin. It conceals and brightens by reflecting the light. I haven’t had any issues with creasing throughout the day and I find it leaves the skin under my eyes looking healthy and hydrated. I’ve been using this daily for a few weeks now and I’m quite happy.
Pro Tips: Pat this into the lower eye crease, outer corners of the eye, and around the lip line for the brightest glow ever! This formula reduces puffness around the eyes by 18% and will quickly turn into your Monday morning bestie. (Thanks Blair!).
