Seventeen Phwoarr Paint

If there's one thing I know, it's dark under-eye circles. I'm always on the lookout for new products that could help me out, and changing up my makeup routine in the hope I may find something that works well on my tired-looking eyes.

I've seen Phwoarr Paint floating around the blogosphere for a while now, so I just decided to pick it up and give it a try!

The packaging isn't my favourite, although it probably is the best way to package this heavy creamy formula. It does come with a small mirror which is always handy.

I don't think I've ever used such a heavy concealer before, it certainly doesn't lack coverage. I have pretty deep coloured dark circles and this does help a lot. I apply this before foundation, then add another concealer layer after my foundation for maximum coverage.
I find this applies best if I use a firm flat eyeshadow brush, then blended in using my fingertips.

The one thing that bugs me about this product is that it can be drying. A couple of times I've worn this concealer I've noticed that my skin looks awful, like my makeup hasn't gone quite right or that my skin is really dry. It also doesn't stand up to heat very well, creating the same problem with dodgy looking skin!

Overall, I'm pretty on the fence with this one. Maybe over time I will begin to love it more, I think I just expected a bit more from the product. It's great when I'm having a good skin day and I don't get too warm throughout the day, but of course these things aren't always avoidable.

What's your opinion on this concealer?
