Not quite ready for full-on under-eye concealer but would love to “brighten up” a bit?
Yep, me too! While recently perusing Macy’s very Sephora-inspired in-store beauty boutique, IMPULSE BEAUTY (an open-sell space concept featuring niche beauty brands to complement Macy’s traditional beauty counters), I stumbled upon CARGO OneBase.
The product is marketed as a concealer and foundation in one. The palm size tube with doe foot applicator certainly makes the product hella portable and easy to use. Before actually purchasing the product, I applied it in-store, walked around the mall, had lunch (at The Cheesecake Factory – yumma!), observed whether or not it creased or faded, then marched right back to Macy’s and bought it…and it’s been my go-to ever since!
CARGO OneBase is a really nice perk for the face. It brightens without the reverse-raccoon look…you know what I mean, instead of the raccoon (dark under-eye area), the reverse-raccoon is the uber illuminated under-eye…so much so that it borders on white and is outright frightful. *insert shiver*
While CARGO OneBase is available at Ulta.com, I advise perhaps clicking on CARGOCosmetics.com because they appear to offer the full shade range – seven shades, from very fair with yellow undertone to dark with neutral undertone. My personal shade is “045 medium with golden undertone”. Of the seven shades, mine is number six on the intensity scale.
