I have been searching for a good under eye concealer for years - ever since Lancome discontinued their clicky brush pen product and replaced with with claggy thick palettes and liquids that made me itch. I've been through ALL the brands in ALL the shops from Space NK to Aldi looking for a sheer, creamy, illuminating concealer that doesn't have glitter in it, doesn't dry into a matt powder or make my eyes sore. I must have spent £100s on the concealer graveyard I have in my makeup bag. The Collection Illuminating touch concealer is creamy and sheer concealer which suits me as I don't like thick matt makeup (it seems to make my crinkles look worse). It doesn't smell of anything and it has a very slight reflective quality but it is subtle and not glittery. I bought it for £2.99. Absolute bargain. It's easily better than some £30+ products I've tried. I wear it over a light moisturiser and dot it on with the brush then dab it with my finger to blend. It covers well for a sheer product and I only need a little bit. It also seems to suit my skin and it doesn't make my eyes sore. The only downside is that it doesn't look so good at the end of the day and does settle into creases after 8 hours wear but for less than £3 I can put up with that. I've seen other people mention that the packaging is cheap. Personally I'm not a big fan of brush pens anyway because it's a lot of plastic with a few drops of makeup inside. I've had £30 concealer brush pens break after 3 days and had to crack them open to get the product out so I think reliability is a bit of a failing with this type of product / dispenser generally.
