In my today’s review I want to talk about the Under Eye Concealer & Highlighter by the American Brand E.L.F. Cosmetics
The product was packed in a thin carton box of black color.
Also it was sealed at the sides with translucent stickers. I think that it’s very good and tells about serious attention to the customers, as once I received such packaging I could be sure that nobody had opened it before me.
Correct under eye problematic areas such as dark circles and bags easily and effectively with the e.l.f. Cosmetics Under Eye Concealer & Highlighter!
It moisturizes, soothes and tightens the skin. It blends in easily and evenly. It doesn’t dry the skin and has light consistency.
Contains vitamins A & E, chamomile, caffeine and green tea.
The applicator reminds me of the lip glosses' applicator
The stopper is very good, there's not very much of the product taking out. The product doesn’t flow out or leak.
The consistency of both products is quite liquid, a bit watery I can say, and absolutely not oily.
It covers the skin in beautiful thin layer.
My concealer has yellow undertone in Fair color
On the swatch it isn’t so much seen as on the face, but we’ll speak about it later.
Highlighter dries very quickly, immediately I'd say. It has absolutely white color with small parts of shimmer, like silver sparkles (click twice to zoom)
Both products greatly cover the color and the texture of the skin, despite their light texture and coverage.
In a couple of minutes I decided to blend the products on my hand. I found out that it was easier to do it with the concealer. The highlighter dried totally and was just rolling up when I tried to blend it. It means that it should be blended once applied. I also noticed that when you apply the highlighter, the first thing you see on your skin are silver sparkles, which aren’t very big but still visible.
In the photo below I spread the products on the right and left without blending them.

My under-eye skin
-it’s very thin, with small veins, there are dark circles in inner corners, fine lines are about to appear, 29 years.
My feelings once the product is applied.
The concealers spreads with a very thin layer. It freshens and cools my skin very well. Straight after the application, it has dewy finish. To make the consistency of this product thicker, I let it dry a bit, and don't touch it for a couple of minutes. I apply the concealer not only on my under-eye area in the shape of the upside down triangle, but also on the sides of my nose and the skin blemishes. After 2-3 mins, I blend it with my finger on face massage lines without stretching my skin.
I tried to apply it after the foundation on all the high points of my face, and as advised eyeshadow primer. I didn’t like the results of both options at all. Once I applied powder or eyeshadows, the highlighter would immediately roll up. So I came to the conclusion that it’s better to apply it as the finishing product in my make-up: on my cheekbones, under the eyebrows, on the Cupid’s bow, and in evening make-up only, as there’s a great amount of silver shimmer in.
The result of using the product:
After the product sets up, it has satin, but not matte finish. It doesn’t show any wrinkles or creases and has a light photoshop effect. It hides my under-eye circles and dark inner corners on 80%, I should say. It shines a bit in the photo.
And the most important is (and for this feature I can forgive the product everything) is that it doesn’t settle in the wrinkles during the day at all, even without touching up with the powder!
- it gets dried very quickly and you have to be very quick with it
- when applied straight after some product, it rolls up
- in general, it makes my skin lighter and gives it shine because of the shimmer (not delicate glow)
- it’s better to use it on the cheekbones and under the eyebrows.
I would give it 3 stars…
- light and not fatty texture
- gives cooling effect
- the color is fair, so it’ll suit to even fair-skinned girls
- when applied on the enlarged pores, it defines them
- it hides red spots very well
- it totally covers up the under-eye circles and veins
- it won’t conceal very active dark circles
- it has tightening effect
- it doesn't roll up during the day
I’ll give it 5 stars!
To both products “Under Eye Concealer & Highlighter” I can give 4 stars.
Generalizing, I want to say that I recommend Under Eye Concealer & Highlighter by E.L.F. Cosmetics to the girls with not very active dark under-eye circles and to those who have fine lines or even age-related changes around eyes!
