Okay let’s address the huge elephant in the room right away, shall we? This under-eye concealer has glitter in it. GLITTER! Pardon my french but WTF, MUA? Really? I understand the idea of reflecting light away from imperfections and products having a shimmering or sheeny quality to them, they’re not my favourite but I get where they’re coming from my actual glitter is just mad. My worst nightmare in fact. I am a stickler for eyeshadow fallout and much as I love the effect I avoid glitter at all costs because I know it will end up all over my face so the idea that you would start off with glitter under your eyes.. I can’t get my head around it and past my initial trial of this for review purposes can’t see another occasion where I will wear it. Someone on twitter did suggest that I may like it as an eyelid primer but there’s a creasing issue there which would make it not so fit for purpose.. nice thought though.
The colour and formula are good, nice coverage, I did experience some creasing but I’d say it was on a par if not better than the equivalent I use from Collection (2000) but I just can’t get past the glitter and am dying to know if it’s just me or if MUA have made a huge faux pas in the development of this product. Surely I’m not the only one who can’t get on board with glittery concealer but maybe I am, let me know how you feel about it below
