La Colline Eye Mask is for treating dark circles whereas a concealer is for combating and disguising the circles while helping to reduce puffiness. Concealer is a must for someone like me who have super serious dark circles. I know what's a concealer but had no clue which should I buy. So I thought it will be save to get one from Bobbi Brown. As with standard thing at the counter, the shades were tested. Finally I had to agree with the male promoter that pale yellow is most suited.
What Bobbi Brown says
Bobbi's secret of the universe Creamy Concealer for anyone who wants an instant pick me-up. It dramatically improves a woman's appearance by covering darkness under the eyes for a brighter, fresher, more well-rested look.
Provides maximum coverage for up to 8 hours without streaking, creasing or changing colour. The creamy concealer formula goes on easily and blends with minimal effort, making the under eye area look smooth and virtually lineless. Bonus: It’s waterproof, sweat and humidity-resistant (without ever being thick).
Using the Concealer Brush (sold separately), apply Creamy Concealer as close as possible to the lash line, and also on the innermost corner of the eye. Gently blend with your fingers.
Petrolatum, Lecithin, Tocopheryl Acetate, Retinyl Palmitate, Methyl Methacrylate, Tribehenin, Titanium Dioxide, Iron oxides, Mica, Octyldodecyl Stearoyl Stearate, and Propylene Glycol Stearate.
The concealer comes in a tiny pot with a mirror. The mirror is for those who touch up during the day. For me, it doesn't make any difference for I prefer to apply in front of a sizeable mirror. Neither do I carry the pot with me for re-applying. I apply the concealer over my eye cream with my ring finger. Since its opaque, I take the smallest amount, dot and gently swipe around my eyes before applying foundation and setting with powder. The creamy concealer glides easily and does not dry up. It packs a pigmented punch to conceal my dark circles as well as to brighten and maintain moisture for a smooth look.
I’m impressed with this concealer. Its expensive but lasts very long and can be used to the last drop lightweight. In the long run, value for money. Not sure about repurchasing unless it’s finished off and let me see what happens next.
