concealer update

i just can't bring myself to spend $70 on concealer (even though i am still dying to try the cle de peau). so when my precious T. Leclerc concealer pens were exhausted, i tried to find something a little more within my budget. i had been using Rimmel for a little while--and of course i was loving that and then one day wasn't loving it anymore. i think i got tired of using two products; also, after a while, i felt like it was too dry under my eyes. i moved on to Natural FX Water Based Foundation SPF 15. i'd heard and read a lot about this stuff online and when i saw a makeup artist at sephora applying it on women in the store, i thought why not. it's foundation--i never touch the stuff--that can also be used as a concealer. and as usual, i was loving it and then one day wasn't loving it anymore. at the beginning, i felt like it covered my dark circles perfectly and then after a while, i noticed the darkness creeping in again. so i moved on again--call me the concealer gypsy--to Prescriptives Site Unseen Brightening Concealer. today was the first day, first application, and i thought it covered pretty well. my only gripe: it's a twist pen and sometimes there is a bit of a product overflow so i feel like it can waste a lot of product. however, i was happy with the coverage so let's see how long the love affair lasts.
