Here is my review on an under eye concealer called Precision Retouch by Giorgio Armani. I rarely touch on this subject- here is what I’m currently using under my eyes and my verdict!
I own this concealer in shade #2 and I’m somewhere between an NC20 and NC25. I wouldn’t say that under eye circles are a primary problem of mine, but I do have a bit of discolouration that I would label as ‘mild’. I’ve implemented this product to illuminate shadows and provide minor coverage.
Final verdict at the end of this post, but here is the product in action. These pictures where taken on a day where I was particularly sallow, to exemplify the merits of this concealer.
Bare eyes (note shadows and discolouration):
I apply the product on the undereye area and a little in the inner corner:
I then dab in with my finger, and dust with a little Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder for under eyes:
And pulled together, here is the final look:
My personal opinion is that most people need an under eye concealer or illuminator to ensure a ‘polished’ look, and this product fulfills that requirement. The shade is great, the coverage is spot on and it lasts all day when paired with my Laura Mercier powder.
Armani Precision Retouch conceals minor to moderate discolouration without appearing ‘cakey’ or obvious on the skin, due to the fluid consistency of the product.
Perhaps the only aspect that may prevent me from repurchasing- I detect a discernible shimmer in sunlight (on closer inspection of the ingredient list- Mica, cheeky little bugger). I did not observe this while I was using the Rouge Bunny Rouge undereye pen, nor the YSL Touche Eclat. On the other hand, those two products did not provide the level of coverage delivered by Armani Precision Retouch.
After I finish this product, I’m interested in trialling the By Terry Touche Veloutee concealer.
What under eye concealer are you guys using? And what’s the verdict?
