My top three under-eye concealers(drugstore)//COLLAB WITH PRETTYRAINCLOUDS

Hello everyone,
We've all been there with late nights.You might have spent a fabulous,fun filled night partying or a boring day studying away into oblivion then wake up the next morning with hideous and dark 5 o'clock shadows accompanying your face.Sadly sweetie,you know it ain't pretty because dark circles can just make people appear unhealthy*sad face* and err not so radiant and happy as usual-however we all know about the magic of makeup right?

For this week's post I thought I would share my top three favourite "I'm tired" busting concealers which are both affordable and effective,all of which have been given the good old thumbs up by me so whatever the situation you're 100% prepared!

If you want to discover more favourite makeup gems then please head over to the lovely Leonie's blog where she shall be sharing her top three eyeshadows.


Rimmel Wake me up//£5.49
I've almost come to the end of this tube so at the moment,I'm painstakingly scraping away and wiggling the the wand like a manic to get to the last remaining product left deep inside the bottom(I always try to waste nothing).Hopefully*fingers crossed*it will be used up by the end if December because I've had this since the end of last year so yeah...expired makeup and all that yanno?
Shade range:True ivory,ivory,classic beige & soft beige
Packaging:Plastic tube,doe-foot applicator,sparkly orange lid
Claims:Full coverage concealer that visibly reawakens and illuminates under the eyes.Completely conceals spots and other blemishes.With peptides and a vitamin moisturising complex.

My thoughts:The formula feels very light on skin and is not particularly thick which means no creasing,hooray!Originally,I was very weary of this concealer as I was rather concerned about it containing the "light reflecting particles" but once on,it's not very noticeable and doesn't turn your face into a walking highlight pallet.

Seventeen Skin Wow//£4.99
I bought this when there was a buy 2 get a product free offer(well something like that anyway aha)in Boot's around October time earlier on this year.

Shade range:Fair and medium
Packaging:Shiny,gold plastic 'clicky' pen,paintbrush/pen nib applicator
Claims:The ultimate pick me up!Use to brighten under you eyes or to highlight under cheekbones,brow bones and cupids bow.Give skin a WOW!
My thoughts:Apparently its dupe for the expensive YSL Touche Eclat concealer so check it out if you want a cheaper alternative or just want to try something like it before investing in a more pricey option.It is worth giving a go if you like highlighting(not just underneath the eyes!)and I'd imagine it would be great for strobing.

Maybelline Instant Anti-age,instant eye eraser//£7.99
There was a lot of hype around this product around the time it first came out and rightly so!The anti-aging stuff put me off giving this a go to begin with but I saw Youtubers like Floral Princess and Quisha Rose using this,which I guess changed my mind.
Shade range:Light and nude (UK)
Packaging:Plastic tube,sponge applicator at the top,twist collar left to release product 
Claims:Maybelline Eraser Eye does more than just cover!Its coloured pigments perfect the under eye area covering flawlessly.Enriched with Goji Berry the formula cares for the eye area that suffers most from a hectic social life and lack of sleep- the eyes.
My thoughts:Oh this concealer really is great,it blends out smoothly and perfects skin wonderfully.Everyone needs to give this a go whether they're a teenager or a 40 something with more mature skin.The only criticism I want to put out there is about the shade range...why just two shades for the folks who live in the UK?!I recently went to Asia and there where at least 4 more available.Being in Britain, you'd think that with it being so diverse they would bring out more colours allowing a wider range of people to enjoy.
Swatch order(top to bottom):Rimmel Wake Me Up,Maybelline Instant Anti-age Rewind,Seventeen Skin Wow
