Oh gosh is the name of Seventeen's newest product cringeworthy "Phwoarr Paint", I can feel my toes curling as I speak but if you are in the market for a well priced concealer that will hide the darkest of circles then look past the name as this really is a gem.
Sadly like most high street brands Seventeen's Phwoarr Paint does only come in two shades Fair - which is a light slightly orange tinged hue which will be suitable for most fair complexions but be a little too deep for those with more of an Ivory complexion. The other shade is Medium which is what I opted for and again it is fairly light but with a more orange undertone. I know what you are thinking orange ugh but such tone counters the often blue tone of dark circles. For £5.49 the packaging is not something to write home about nor does it warrant any complaints - a small black round compact with a handy mirror for on the go applications. No it won't appeal to all ages but given Seventeen's target market (teens) it is rather fitting.
Truthfully the texture of Seventeen Phwoarr Paint Heavy Duty Under Eye Concealer is somewhat thick, rich and almost tacky in texture and reminds me greatly of Benefit's Erase Paste. The pro's of such formulation is that it hides all signs of fatigue around the eye area and is fairly easy to apply and blend out. The heavier texture does take some time to get used to and in all honesty I do prefer something lighter in texture. The con's is that a thick texture like this is less than suitable for more mature or drier skin types as it does cling to any faults such as lines or dry patches. Also on oily skin you will have to set this as it can gather and crease after two hours - however with a light dusting of powder this will wear for close to eight hours on my oily skin. In my opinion this is a great budget version of Benefit's Erase Paste but is best for those with no under eye concerns other than signs of a restless sleep.
