Though the past year has seen many of us revamping our skincare routine and focusing on our skin like never before, it’s no secret that working from home has left us pretty burnt out. In fact, a lot of us are suffering chronic WFH fatigue which, amongst other causes, has left us with a serious case of skinxiety, worrying about our potentially dull, knackered complexions.
Which is probably why, in a time when most of are going mostly sans makeup, the one product we’re reaching for before Zoom meetings is our trusty concealer. Burnout, lack of sleep and stress are taking their toll on our under-eyes, and whether you want to erase them or embrace them, it’s no wonder that concealers for covering dark circles have been doing the rounds on social media.
The latest wonder product to go viral with the beauty-insiders at Tik Tok is just £8 (those guys love a bargain beauty buy – praise be!), and is raking in plenty of five-star reviews from happy customers. In fact, 100% of ASOS buyers would recommend it!
The product in question? Makeup Revolution’s Eye Bright Concealer which is being hailed for its full coverage and brightening properties.
“Really brightening and doesn’t crease or look cakey,” wrote one reviewers. “Really good coverage, blends well and doesn’t crease throughout the day,” said another.
But that’s not all – the concealer is also being credited as an affordable alternative to the Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Contour Wand, as the sponge applicator tip is very similar.
“Can the Charlotte Tilbury contour wand, loved by many, be duped? The answer is apparently ‘yes'”, says Tik-Toker @mikaylanogueira.
“These are the Makeup Revolution Eye Concealers, but people are using them to contour like you would the Charlotte Tilbury Contour Wand.” Mikayla proceeds to dot the product in the areas she wishes to contour – down her cheekbones, nose and jawline – before blending with a sponge. She uses Makeup Revolution on one side of her face; and Charlotte Tilbury on the other.
“I think this side looks really good!” she concludes of the Makeup Revolution half, “it’s a dupe guys!”
