GIORGIO ARMANI High Precision Retouch 4.4ml $35／A$54
My IPSA Eyezone Concealer smelt funny so I (sadly) tossed it and bought this to replace it. I can’t think of a reason why I bought this (as opposed to something else) other than I’m somehow on a mission to try everything GA. （*｀▽´*）ｳﾋｮﾋｮ
I only have one concealer at a time so I’ve been using this regularly for a few months and I like it! ･:*:･ﾟ☆ｄ(≧∀≦)ｂﾟ+.ﾟｲｲ It has some weaknesses but generally I can live with those.
The High Precision Retouch is a liquid type concealer for undereyes areas. I usually pick a liquid concealer over a thicker, cream type for hiding undereye circles because my eye area is quite dry. My counter also had another concealer, which was thicker with more coverage, but I can’t find it on the website now and it was too dry for my undereye area.
High Precision Retouch comes in three shades (or at least my counter had three shades): 2, 3 and 3.5. 2 was far too light for me so I took 3, which is yellow-toned and still quite fair. 3 was lighter than both Designer Cream Foundation in 5 (which roughly corresponds to LSF 4) and PAUL&JOE Fluid Foundation in 20. I think darker skin tones might have trouble finding a match in this concealer… (。´･ω･)ん?
The main thing this concealer isn’t too good at is coverage. It doesn’t always cover my undereye circles and sometimes they are still quite obvious. So I don’t think it would work on serious undereye circles. (´･ω･｀;A) アセアセ
But it’s totally not drying! ∩(´∀｀)∩ﾜｧｲ♪ It doesn’t make the fine lines around my eyes stand out, and my eye area doesn’t feel tight or dry when I use this. I find it better at hydrating than IPSA Eyezone Concealer.
It also stays in place the whole day without slipping or fading, so it’s definitely long-wearing. +.ﾟ(*´∀｀)bﾟ+.ﾟｲｨ
The other thing I dislike about it is very minor… but I don’t like the design of the brush. I suppose the brush is thin for “high precision”, but I find it more of an annoyance to use. I like a wider brush better, and I don’t really need precision with an included applicator. 彡(´∀｀;●)彡 ﾋｭｰﾋｭｰ
There are scary looking no makeup pictures after this. ・:*:・(●´Д｀●)・:*:・ My undereye circles actually aren’t too bad at the moment and my camera doesn’t manage to capture them properly (… which is a good thing? ((´∀｀*))ヶﾗヶﾗ).
I don’t apply foundation or makeup base around my eyes so there isn’t much difference between these two.
