Somehow my recent loves posts have become thematic so this one can be considered the eye makeup edition. Either way, these are actual products I've been using that I really like and want to share with you all.
I use concealer primarily on my dark circles so I was instantly intrigued when I read about this concealer that is specially formulated to both cover and treat dark circles at the same time. The concealer itself has a smooth silky texture that's lovely to work with and a botanical based formula that hydrates and also combats puffiness and inflammation. It provides great long wearing coverage that doesn't cake or dry out. And you need very little. I love multitasking products especially when they combine cosmetics and skincare and this really works to cover and reduce the appearance of my undereye circles. It's also free of free of fragrance, parabens, alcohol, and phthalates. This concealer is $26 and is available exclusively from Onomie. I have to mention that it comes in ten shades and Onomie has an awesome Try At Home program. For $4 you can order a Shade Starter Kit in the shade closest to your skintone and they'll also send you the next lighter and darker shades to try out. This was super helpful because the lighter shade that was sent to me ended up being a better match for my skin and the sample lasted for almost two weeks. If you end up purchasing the full size product, the cost of the sample kit will be credited towards the price.
This is a mascara that has been around and I had gone through several samples of this mascara and always liked it so I was thrilled when my friend Kim of A Very Sweet Blog sent me this full sized tube. This mascara promises to reveal lashes that you never had and I think it does a good job of delivering both length and volume. I find most mascaras usually tend to excel in only one of those. And it holds a curl without clumping or smudging. This does have a rather large brush with a domed tip that can be a little unwieldy but after getting past the slight learning curve and mastering how to use it properly, I really appreciate the eye opening effects of this mascara and how it can coat even my tiniest lashes. The only thing I'm not crazy about is that it's fairly difficult to remove and I always have to use a separate waterproof eye makeup remover to make sure I get it off completely. The full size mascara retails for $24. They also sell a deluxe sample size that sells for half the price which you can get a good three months of use from.
