Catrice Light Reflecting Concealer

You may think its a little crazy to see a blog post from me pop up. After all, I haven't blogged in probably a month or so? Naaat good. If you're wondering why, its because I had crazy exams for the past two weeks, and it was so stressful. They were pretty much all in a row, which means I had no time to blog, and not even enough time to spare an hour for Made in Chelsea or Game of Thrones (cry).

Anyway, they're all over now and I'm officially free to blog until my hearts content! So, on to the review.

If you've read my blog before you'll know that I absolutely love some of the Catrice products, although I will admit they can be a bit of a hit and miss. This Light Reflecting Concealer pen actually started off as a bit of a miss, but I've grown to love it and its become one of my most used every day products.

Now, I have the concealer in Light, which, as far as I could see was the lightest shade available. However as soon as I got some product out I knew immediately it wasn't the kind of shade I usually like to use as a nice brightener. It just seemed too dark (even darker than my foundation) to use under the eye area, and I ended up putting it to the side and forgetting about it.

Fast forward to when I got a tan and said I'd give it another go - and I love it. Its nice and creamy, not heavy or uncomfortable to wear at all, and actually does a good job of brightening up my particularly dark under eye area. Perfect for those days when you're looking a bit on the tried side.

Despite not being one for the super pale - this product is still a great bargain (bit of a Touche Éclat dupe anyone!?) and I would definitely recommend it for a quality budget buy!
