Lately I just couldn’t find a concealer that wouldn’t crease. Even my once very loved Bobbi Brown started to crease like 5 mins after application. First I thought that maybe it’s about concealer. So I was looking for another one, but they all started to crease like crazy. After some time I had to search for another reasons of my problem and I had to face the truth: I am getting older and my under eye area is not as fresh and young as it used to be, it is very dry and I have some wrinkles. I started using anti-aging eye creams but for now my problem is still there. So I went looking for an alternative, easy solution and decided to try this filler: Clarins Instant Smooth Line Correcting Concentrate.

Description of Clarins Instant Smooth Line Correcting Concentrate:

This magic corrector is rich in dermaxyl ®, a line correcting peptide, that can be applied directly onto lines, wrinkles and enlarged pores throughout the day to keep your complexion smoother and brighter with instant and long-lasting results. Perfect to diminish the appearance of facial expression lines with line-filling Acacia Micro Pearls. Slanted tip makes it easy for targeted application.*

My opinion:

This filler has a quite silicone texture, but it’s very smooth and pretty, it’s not thick at all and gets absorbed within seconds. Crazy idea but it actually seems like this product moisturizes the eyes. At least, they don’t feel dry at all. This concentrate can be used as a primer for concealer and makeup (if you’re using it for other areas than the eyes. I’ve only tested it on the eyes because I only have wrinkles there). But for the eyes, for me it did a wonderful job: my eye area felt hydrated and smooth, applying concealer was much easier than usual, creasing was very limited and it looked photoshopped! That’s exactly what I was looking for.
