17 Phwoarr Paint, Heavy duty under eye concealer | £5.49 Boots
A few weeks ago my skin hit a serious spot of bother. I tend to sport a lonely blemish on occasion, but for the most part my skin is fairly well behaved. The unexpected breakout was horrific, my face had erupted in a rash of painful red spots and then the unthinkable happened, I ran out of concealer. During the emergency Boots trip, this little pot took my fancy....
Seventeen's Phwoarr Paint is dubbed as a 'heavy duty under eye concealer' but I find it works its magic best as a blemish-busting cover up. The heavy duty title means business, it's full coverage and the creamy formula is a breeze to blend. If I'm having a particularly bad skin day, I'll apply this under foundation and on top, after doing so, imperfections become virtually invisible. I find using a brush feels a little too heavy with this, so I like to gently blend and pat it in using my fingers. I'm really into the minimalist, snap shut packaging and I like that it's travel friendly with a built-in mirror for speedy touch ups. Admittedly, I don't love it as much as an 'under eye' concealer, it becomes creased and cakey after a while - but this may be due to the fact my skin is slightly dryer in that area. Despite the lacking under-eye situation, for a drugstore spot cover up I think this is ah-mazing and I will definitely be snapping it up again soon.
