the other half of my new anti-dark-circle-routine is the Giorgio Armani High Precision Retouch Concealer. the first step was with Giorgio Armani's Master Corrector in #2, which i have already shown you here.
after testing the Master Corrector for a few days i was so pleased with its texture and pigmentation that i ordered the matching concealer since i've found so many rave reviews for it. i purchased it on douglas.de about one month ago, it costs 29.95€.
i chose shade #3 for my NC20-ish skin in MAC after going through many MakeupAlley reviews and had the right touch as it matches me well.
it comes in a opaque black tube, the beige stripes at the sides are just printed on and not indicator windows, so you won't know exactly how much you have left and when you'll run out of product.
it has the same thin brush applicator like the Master Corrector. i only use it to draw fine lines of product to the desired areas and then blend in the concealer with my fingers.
it has a thin consistency but even if i only use a little amount of product it still blends out like a dream, absolutely evenly. it has a high pigmentation and ends up with medium coverage. for the face i need a bit of it to conceal the redness around my nose and on my chin, especially on days where i only wear BB cream or a sheer foundation, it does that job really well. it also works exceptionally well with the Giorgio Armani Master Corrector, i use it on top of that to even out any orange tone that is left and to extra brighten my undereye areas. both products are liquidy and set to a thin satin finish, so there will be less to none creasing into fine lines.
the High Precision Retouch Concealer diffuses the light nicely so it brightens well, however i don't love such a yellow concealer on my dark circles alone since it makes them appear greyish/greenish.
it doesn't dry out my skin, making it look wrinkly and old but makes it appear moisturised and healthy. to me, this is really a winner. it's ideal for the summer months when you don't want thick and creamy formulas or if you like lightweight, liquidy consistencies generally.
