All Eyes On Me....

Brand Focus... Clinique.

So, I wasn't blessed with the best eyes in the world... now I'm not talking about being Chinese because I don't think I have particularly 'Chinesey' eyes (not that I'm saying that Chinese eyes are bad don't get me wrong...) but I'm talking about those dreaded DARK circles --> O <-- underneath them.  They won't go away no matter what I do or even if I sleep for 12 hours.  Apparantly, it's linked to my sinus problem?!  Anyways I digress...

For most of my life... I've had to experiment with different concealers and cover ups to hide my suitcases whilst making sure I don't over-do smokey eyes on a night out to avoid looking like I've been brutally punched.  Recently I've been lucky enough to be given a fantastic concealer to try by a Clinique lover, embassador and devotee (thanks Caroline!).

This little gem is the Clinique Airbrush Concealer £14.68 (Boots - cheapest around so far).  It's a light reflecting under-eye brightener that conceals & hides blemishes & in my case dark circles. What I really like about it is that it's got a lightweight texture to it that doesn't cling & is so easy to use. It comes in a range of skin tones and a perfect handbag sized necessity.

Tip: Brush on the affected areas with small amounts of concealer then use your forefinger to dab it gently.  Repeat to increase coverage.

I DEFINITELY recommend this little wonder... it's like the Touch Eclat... but better & cheaper!


The next Clinique ♥ of mine is...

All About Eyes eye cream £20 (Save £2 on everywhere else at Boots.com!). This cream/gel formula is fantastic... it's featherlight and feels silky on the eyes once applied.  This beauty is geared towards reducing dark circles (yes!), puffiness and softens lines.  What's more when applied in the morning it helps to hold make up in place too!  It's also been featured on Gok Wan's 'How To Look Good Naked'!
Even though it's small in size... it lasts for ages as you only need to use a tiny amount so it's a little must-have pot of gold!

I absolutely recomment both of these reviewed... I've also guided you to the Boots website because:

1) Well-known brand 
2) Trusted website 
3) It's a couple of quid cheaper if you buy Clinique than other websites 
4) You can collect your Advantage Card points online too!

If you've used/are using these products you're definitely encouraged to let me know what you think too!  And if you do suffer the same condition as me... let me know your recommendations!
