My allergy related dark undereye circles are my biggest reason to wear makeup, so I totally justified the price of this after my favorite Trish McEvoy concealer duo was discontinued. I bought Ocher, which was best on me of the options but still a little dark on my jawline. Was surprised that for the price there wasn't a better range of colors. Sales person suggested buying 2 and mixing. At this price, I don't think so. Pluses: nice texture, no fragrance, some yellow undertones instead of all being too pink. Cons: didn't really work well -- made my undereye circles look "grayish", poor range of colors, expensive, poor staying power. Bottom line - not worth the price. Maybe if you have the perfect match of their 4 options to your skintone, it is worth a try. Even so, it must be better for blemishes than undereye circiles. People come in far more than 4 colors too. I am now trying Becca concealer based on MUA reviews. It has a much wider range of shades and at $38 is a steal compared to C de P. The sales lady told me it would last me "forever". After 3 months, I am at the end of the stick. I applied with finger, which does end up using more product, but even so! I wonder if with the new formula that people are writing about then they also decreased the quantity?
I have tried countless undereye concealers only to be disappointed. My purchase before Becca was the ridiculously expensive Cle de Peau, which I rationalized by saying that if it really worked it was worth it, but the color was off and with only 2 others to choose from, I am not going back that route. Becca has a great color range. My skin tans easily in summer and is pale with yellowish undertones in winter (definitely I look better when sunkissed!) Allergies give me horrible undereye circles. Becca in Macadamia brightened that area without being too "pinky" and covered the circles without going gray. Only thing that came close before was Trish McEvoy's even skin duo concealer in the pan, and they discontinued that. Hooray - may have found the new standby!!
This does not work as well on my thick, coarse Caucasian hair (think Catherine Zeta Jones) as oleo relax slim or masqueintense by Kerastase. It does smell divine but is not heavy enough for me. I suspect it would work well with finer hair.
I am a long-standing fan of Kerastase -- it is crazy expensive but really makes a huge difference in my hair. I have tried EVERYTHING out there and have realized that it is better to pay more for something that works, vs. less for something that I won't use up. My hair is super thick, Caucasian, somewhat coarse, and highlighted. Without products, I look like the "before" in the "don't hate me b/c my hair is beautiful" ads. I cannot just air dry without having a big mass of hair. Oleo slim masque is great at getting my hair under control without a waxy build up. It leaves it super soft. I don't care for the smell vs. other Kerastase products, but am not buying it for the smell as much as the effectiveness. I still need to flat iron or blow out with a round brush to get my hair smooth. I also use Kerastase Chroma Reflect masque and Nutrative Masqueintense. For comparison's sake, the masqueintensive for thick hair does the best at moisturizing, but also tends to make my hair limp/a little greasy at roots the next day. Chroma reflect smells terrific but is far too light of a conditioner for my thick hair. I think that oleo relax slim is my favorite if I had to use just one and I may look into the leave in treatment based on reviews here.
