Chronicles of Eye Bags: Shiseido Sheer Eye Zone Corrector

I don't understand why we have eye bags, I truly don't.

Especially now that I've moved my world around the simple goal of being able to sleep longer {I'm one of them who needs eight hours to function}, I realized the persistence of the appearance of eye bags even when I've devoted so many hours of my life applying eye cream and sleeping.

Being the geek I am, I researched on the reasons why we get eye bags. Here are some of my findings:

  • Having a salt-heavy diet --- Eye bags are water trapped in the skin under the eye, after all. No more salty food and food with soy sauce.
  • Crying a lot --- eep, no more watching tearjerker movies!
  • Sleeping on the sides. This allows the undereye to gather water while we sleep. ACK!
  • Excessive drinking and smoking.

Thankfully, the world of makeup is a kind one --- and there's always a solution to puffy, dark circles. 

With a sheer finish, this unique corrector neutralizes dark circles with exclusive color and an ultra-thin formula specifically for the eye zone. In 6 shades, Sheer Eye Zone Corrector cancels the discoloration around the eye based on the skin tone around the cheek. Just-applied finish lasts all day.

With special thanks to friends from Shiseido, their new eyezone corrector was right on time as I couldn't keep myself from clawing out salty junk food and my rom coms.

Here's what I think about it:

  • It took me a long time to get the pen to open, as I had to screw it out numerous times. 
  • Shiseido's Training Manager Carmel Villongco mentioned during that afternoon tea that the pen works best in duo --- so I got the 103 and 104. One is pink toned and another is yellow toned. 
  • The brush is AMAZING. I've been reading about proper concealer application {downwards vs. just around the eyes} and Shiseido's white brush is perfect for this technique.
  • Blends well, melts into the skin and is perfect when patted with Ellana Minerals foundation.
  • Lasts considerably long {though best to wear primer, of course} especially in airconditioned rooms.

This is me, pre-makeup.
