Lately, I've been really tired -- as in falling asleep at 8:30 p.m. once Friday comes around kind of tired.
You'd think that daylight savings and the "extra hour of sleep" would have made me feel less drained, but between work and life and just adult-ing in general, I'm officially exhausted. And it's taking a toll on my appearance.
Suddenly dark circles have started appearing under my eyes -- something I've never had before. Add that my pre-existing puffiness, and well, I have people asking me the dreaded "Are you okay? You look tired" question.
Naturally, I needed a solution that could fake the few extra hours of sleep I've been missing. And let me tell you friends, I think I've found it.
Charlotte Tilbury's Mini Miracle Eye Wand is the the antidote to tired, exhausted eyes. The dyanmic duo lift and light reflector claims to give you the appearance of eight hours sleep in just two clicks, and let me just say it delivers as promised.
The dual-ended wand features both an eye cream and an illuminating under-eye Light Reflector for optimal results. If you know Charlotte Tilbury, you know her skincare credentials are legit (her facial moisturizer is called "Magic Cream" for a reason), and the eye cream is no exception. Simply tap onto the under-eye area and your skin will feel firmer and more taut in an instant.
The Light Reflector is where the "miracle" really happens. It's said to be packed with "a million lights" micro-particles that brighten shadows, conceal discolouration and diffuse the appearance of under-eye hollows.
What sets this apart from other under-eye concealers is the light texture that packs a punch. Rather than sink into any wrinkles or creases, it effectively veils any dark circles and bags. And in true Tilbury fashion, the product is also good for your skin (the polypeptides in the Light Reflector works to minimize the appearance of dark circles with every use).
The Mini Miracle Eye Wand comes in five different shades (I recommend going a shade lighter than you normally would for optimal results) and is available at Holt Renfrew and charlottetilbury.com. And while it is a bit pricey ($55), it's well worth the splurge. You'll be a sleeping beauty in no time!
