Concealer Series: Per-Fekt Beauty Eye Perfection GelFriday, June 03, 2011
I thought I'd take a break from concealers today to talk about Per-Fekt Beauty Eye Perfection Gel, which is a product I mentioned in my how and where to use concealers and correctors post, but I've been somehow slow to actually write a full post about.
As I mentioned in that post, I think the real tip to success with a concealer lasting all day without settling or caking is the area preparation. Having your eye area well moisturized helps the concealer to blend well and set up properly. Truly, this makes a big difference for me.
This eye gel from Per-Fekt is a quick and easy way to have the perfect canvas for your concealer. It comes in a few shades, including translucent. If you order a shade (I have "bright" which is the lightest color), don't expect a lot of coverage. This isn't concealer. The coverage is very light and while it is there, I'm not sure it helps me very much.
The gel does have a silicone base, so it feels very slick and smooth during application. Unlike other silicone based primers that I've used in the past, this one does not pill up if applied too soon after washing my face or applying regular moisturizer. Instead it spreads easily and absorbs into my skin.
The gel has quite a few moisturizing ingredients, including hyaluronic acid and ceramides. It also has a lot of ingredients found on my anti-aging check list such as the anti-oxidants Alpha Lipoic Acid, and Vitamins A and E as well as peptides. It is faintly light reflecting, but not so much that it looks like you've applied shimmer to your eye area.
This has become a staple product for me and will definitely be making an appearance in my next favorite products post!
