I found in a wash bag the other day a clutch of little sample sachets and on a whim decided to try them all out (I normally don’t bother).
And I came across one product that was genuinely incredible.
It is an eye concealer that is also an eye cream, called The Cure Sheer Eye by Natura Bisse. It is cleverly colour-correcting (like a CC or BB cream, it adjusts like magic to your own skin tone) and it was magnificently rich, hydrating and made me look absolutely terrific.
This is amazing I thought to myself. What a find!!
I wrote the name of it in biro on my hand, intending to rush to my computer first thing on Monday morning (now) in order to share this amazing discovery with you.
I Googled it to find out a price and a stockist and discovered that it is £102.
Ha ha, funny joke, universe – thanks. You got me! I need a laugh first thing on a Monday.
But, look, if your eye area is your number one face problem, you could do worse than ask for this for your birthday as it really does do £102 of work.
If you’re still a bit shy of splashing this much money on an eye concealer, hunt down a Natura Bisse stockist and say to the girl on the counter that you’ve heard amazing things, but you could possibly have a little sample sachet to try it out before you commit so many earth pounds? Only someone with a heart of stone would say no.
