As a mother I can honestly say that it’s a blessing to see a child grow right in front of your very eyes. However, along with the joys come some pains, including the fact that I will probably never get a decent night’s sleep until my son leaves for college.
There are so many times I wish I could pack the bags under my eyes and send them on a vacation, and for such times I have come across a delightfully effective product that brightens up my eye area when used on top of concealer. When I use Smashbox’s Photo Op Under Eye Brightener, you would hardly be able to tell I was woken up at 5:30 am by a Thomas and Friends DVD case smashed on my forehead.
I’ll admit I was mighty doubtful about the eye brightener. Would it be too sparkly? Is it promising too much of good thing?
The good news is that this lightweight eye brightener melds with your concealer, and creates an optical illusion that helps to banish unsightly darkness.
The product itself comes with a brush applicatior and has a thin consistency. I put on my concealer, put a bit of the brightener on my palette, aka, the back of my hand – and dab it on top of the concealer, then set with a transluscent powder.
The Smashbox Photo Op Under Eye Brightener is now an essential part of my kit, and reasonably priced at $18.
