This brand new concealer from Clarins is the latest beauty product to make me go wow! It makes such a big difference and really covers up my bags. I'm so impressed at how much it really brightens up my eyes. It's quite a thick coverage but it dries naturally so you can't tell that you're wearing it, and it stays on all day.
The tag line for this concealer says that it 'revives, smoothes and conceals'. It contains 'light-optimising+ complex' which revives the skin, aloe vera which softens and smoothes it, and caffeine extract, which stimulates the skin's microcirculation and reduces any puffiness under the eyes. I think it achieves all three of these- tick, tick, tick for me! I am using Shade 01, which is for a fair skin tone, but it also comes in shades 02 Medium and 03 Dark.
The Instant Concealer did not go cakey or make my lines look more visible like some concealers do. I must admit, as a 25 year old, I'm not too concerned about wrinkles at the moment, but my mum also used this concealer for an evening out last week. My mum is very wary of concealers and usually does not wear them, as all the ones she's tried have emphasised the lines rather than covered them up. However, she was just as impressed as I was with the Clarins Instant Concealer, and has pledged to buy it when she is next in town! So, it's great to see that this works for all ages.
Overall, I am really, really impressed with this product. It completely brightens up my whole eye area, gets rid of any dark circles or uneven skintone, providing a great level of coverage but also looking natural. I would go as far as to say that this is the best concealer I have ever tried- there I said it! It has now become a Holy Grail product for me.
