UNDER EYE BRIGHTENERS: BECCA VS MAC

In honor of Daylight Savings, I thought now might be a good time to discuss my favorite ways to combat dark under-eyes.

I have and love both the Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector and the MAC Prep + Prime Highlighter in Lightboost. These are two very different products that achieve almost identical results (in my opinion). 
 
The Becca product is very different from anything I have ever tried. It comes in a cute little “tub” and is a light peachy-pink color. You apply this product before you apply your concealer. I usually just apply a small amount of this product with my fingers and blend it out with my fingers. I’ve heard others say that they like the beauty blender to blend it out, but I find that my fingers work just fine. When I apply my concealer over this product, it does make it a little more difficult to blend out because this product is kind of tacky feeling.

The MAC product is yellow and very creamy. It is in a pen container, which I love, and you “click” the bottom of the pen to get more product out. The packaging does get much messier than the Becca product though. I usually apply this at the same time as my concealer, and it is incredibly easy to blend out.

I applied each of these products the other night (one to each under eye area) and I found that the results were almost identical (the brightness, lasting powder, lack of creasing, etc.). My husband swears that the MAC side was much brighter but I just didn’t see it. If I had to choose one product, I think I would stick with the MAC brightener because I like that I can apply it at the same time as my concealer and that it is really easy to blend out. Plus, my husband liked it best 🙂
