Hidden Gem At the Drugstore: Essence “Say No To Dark Circles”

Essence can be hit or miss for the most part, but I wanted to find a cheaper alternative to the Becca Undereye Brightening Corrector ($30) and saw that Essence had this!

Say No To Dark Circles ($3)



Top: No product, Bottom: Say No To Dark Circles only

This pencil is creamy, easy to blend, AND helps cover up any darkness before applying concealer overtop. Sometimes I even just like to use this by itself if I’m just running a quick errand but want to look more awake. As you can see in the picture it does a pretty good job of brightening the area and masking most of the darkness.

The only downside to this product is that it is very light. If you have a deeper complexion, this is probably going to be too light for you and won’t really cover anything up, but it is great if you have  a light- medium skin tone.

This has become a product that I use everyday, whether or not I am wearing an actual concealer! Hopefully this was helpful, I definitely recommend giving it a try!

    My only experience with essence is their stay matte pressed powder and it literally turns my skin white… and I’m not dark at all. Also the lid snapped off so now it’s a battle to keep it from getting all in my drawer! This might be worth giving them another shot though.
