Trish McEvoy Instant Eye Lift Jumbo

on

I cannot believe that it is already day 2 and I got to open the second drawer from the Liberty beauty Advent Calendar. The second product is one from Trish McEvoy and I could not be more excited. Trish McEvoy makes amazing products, but that was to be expected no?

The Trish McEvoy Instant Eye Lift Jumbo is a light weight, hyaluronic acid enhanced and brightening concealer. Personally, I am not a huge fan of concealers, but there have been some that managed to convince me other time. One such concealer is the Stretch Concealer from Glossier. Will this Instant Lift Eye Jumbo by Trish McEvoy be another? Read to find out.

My first impressions of the Instant Eye Lift from Trish McEvoy are pretty good. The concealer, just like the Glossier one, does not cling to your lines which does not happen often. For that fact alone, I am super happy to have gotten my hands on this beauty.

The concealer is easy to apply, however it takes a while to set it so you need to blend it pretty well in order for it to look flawless. Furthermore, the light capturing particles that the product claims to have do seem to work pretty well as the Instant Eye Lift Jumbo does brighten the under eye area and makes you eyes pop and seem more awake. However, the hyaluronic acid does no seem to do much. There is barely if any plumping which is a bit disappointing. I will keep you updated though and see what happens after repeated use.

The product is overall great and I am sure that I will continue to reach for it time and time again as well as perhaps repurchase it at some point, but I do dislike the fact that the product comes in only two shades. Those two shades are incredibly versatile and they do seem to work on a large range of skin tones, but that is not enough. Personally, I think that the only drawback, together with the lack of visible effects from the hyaluronic acid, is the colour range. While for me it might work perfectly fine as I am quite fair, it might not work for someone with a taker skin tone and that is a shame and quite frankly unacceptable in this day and age.
