When the Ipsy Glam Bag spoilers for June came out,…
It’s Sunday and I did not sleep nearly enough last night. But I can’t go around looking like a zombie, so it’s time to break out the magical Mary Kay Undereye Corrector and pair it with some Perfecting Concealers, and I am good to go.
You’ve probably stumbled across a few posts about Mary Kay’s new correct and conceal products, that’s because they are really good. All the bloggers I know who received these in the mail are raving about them!
First up, Mary Kay Undereye Corrector. This is the same formula as the concealer but with a peach tone to it which really corrects and hides dark shadows (anything with a blue/purple tone).
This is my eye before… note the purple-ish under my bottom waterline, the blueish hue closer to my nose. And don’t forget those age spots, those are going away in a bit.
One coat of the Undereye Corrector and the blueish hue is gone. Now, my skin is 38 years old. That’s right. It is a bit dry under my eye area and there are some fine lines, but this stayed exactly like this all day. It didn’t crease or smear.
Next up, the Mary Kay Perfecting Concealer. This comes in six different shades and has light-diffusing properties to help blur lines and imperfections. The shade I use under my eyes is the fairest of them all, Light Ivory.
Remember those age spots under my eyes? Bye, bye, bye! Adding a layer of concealer over the corrector actually blurred out the fine lines even more.
Left side has corrector and concealer, right side has nothing. What a huge difference!
For the rest of my face, I use Deep Ivory which is a tad darker than what I use under my eyes. For reference, I am a MAC NW15 and this matches my skin perfectly.
I was able to conceal any age spots, pimples, redness and broken capillaries naturally with the Perfecting Concealer. It blends out really well and has a creamy, buildable formula.
Here are swatches of the corrector and all the shades of the concealer (missing Deep Bronze). I’d say the inside of my arm is a MAC NW13 if you need a comparison.
Now you know I’ve tested A LOT of concealers. I’d put the Mary Kay one up there with Too Faced as far as pigmentation, efficacy and longevity! You can grab these at MaryKay.ca or from your Mary Kay rep.
