Product-analysis: Jane Iredale Circle Delete Under Eye Concealer- #2

Jane Iredale Circle /  Delete Under Eye Concealer - #2 As promised, here’s a review on my favorite under-eye concealer, Jane Iredale Circle/Delete. Before I begin, I’ve got to mention that I’ve been so impressed with Jane Iredale. A truly great beauty company is not afraid of making adjustments when they see the need for it. Years ago, their formula contained Bismuth Oxychloride, which is an ingredient that is irritating to many sensitive-skin types. Ironically, it’s also a common ingredient in many mineral makeup lines. While other mineral cosmetics pioneers like Bare Escentuals and Youngblood remain stubborn and unable to keep up with this ever-changing industry, Jane Iredale was able to reinvent their lines to exclude Bismuth Oxychloride. They did so with style as the line flourished to transform minerals into more user-friendly beauty products. This is the first mineral line to successfully offer beautifully-textured minerals in pressed, liquid, and cream forms. I can see, by researching their formulas, this company’s R&D works hard at utilizing good, nature-derived ingredients whenever possible. Hard work like this rarely goes unnoticed by me, I tell you!

Jane Iredale Circle/Delete
is one of their more clever creations. It’s a potted creamy concealer that offers 2 shades in each pot. My favorite, #2, contains 2 peach-based shades: a light white-peach shade and a darker coral-peach. The colors look odd in the pot but the darker, coral-peach counteracts any darkness upon contact- it's literally magic. I don't blend the 2 colors together, try using the coral-peach shade under the eye and the white-peach shade on your top lid for an eye-lifting effect. As with most Jane Iredale cosmetics, the ingredient list is short and sweet, perfect for my sensitive skin. The product contains lots of natural oils, which makes it a concealer that doubles as an eye treatment. I love that I can skip eye cream in the morning when I’m using this! Set it with a bit of powder and it doesn't budge. By mid-day, it gives my eyes a sheen that looks "healthy". This is a great concealer for eyes of all skin types and would also be a great face concealer for dry and mature skin.


Farmgirl Beauty Secret #4: when applying any under-eye concealer, tilt your face down towards your neck (this will reveal where there’s darkness around the eyes), apply only to the inner corner of the under-eyelid and very lightly blend outward (this is where most under-eye darkness appears). Many people make the mistake of applying too much on the entire under-eyelid, which will give you “opposite-racoon” eyes, where your under-eye appears too light and obvious.



Here’s my disclaimer: I write extremely researched reviews after extensive, self-conducted testing. I do not review products I dislike; it's a waste of time and typing skills. This review contains product I've purchased and gratis sent by company due to interest in feedbacks. My first priority is to my readers; company gratis does not guarantee placement.

All in all, you can be sure that items seen on my website are the very few products that qualify for recommendation after rigorous testing.

wow. this sounds like something i need, no joke! farmgirl, does it cover really bad blue purplish circles?

Hi Charlene,

not only does this have superior concealing power, the coral-peach shade is made specifically to counteract any blue/purple shades! This would be perfect for you.

wow.. this sounds like a really great product!
I have really dark panda eyes! haha! :P

i like the how-to NOT get "opposite-raccoon" eyes :P thanks for the great tip! :P it really does look quite funny and fake when I see that happen :P

thanks for dropping by my blog btw :)
the maybelline stilleto mascara does wash of with warm water. Unfortunately, it is not a tubing mascara like the ones you like :(

OceanDreams said...

Aww, I really need this. Glad I came over here from your other blog - I always pick up the greatest tips! :)

becky said...

wow, this is pretty awesome. great review.

RCaitlin said...

You're blog is such a lifesaver! I've always had trouble with mineral make-ups irritating my skin and I never knew why! I don't really use under eye concealer (thank goodness I don't get dark circles) but the little sis is always looking for something. I'll definitely tell her about this.

Brilliant Farmgirl's Beauty Secrets said...

Good morning, ladies!

Kay, Thanks for your response! I'm such a sucker for tubing mascaras- must do a review soon!

OceanDreams, I only have this blog :) Can you tell me which blog is it? Thanks hun!

RCaitlin, you're so sweet! I'm glad you're able to find important info here :D That's why I started this! Bismuth Oxychloride is definitely responsible for the itching. That's its #1 symptom! My circles are mild. Don't know what compelled me to use this initially but it really brightens the eye area :D I just love the ingredients!

witoxicity said...

I'm loving your blog! I'm a big fan of JI too (we share a common acne history, I believe). I bought Circle/Delete 1 last year but I was hopeless at application, so have been leaving it neglected in the drawer. Will try following your tip! Thanks! :)

Brilliant Farmgirl's Beauty Secrets said...

Good morning ladies,

Witoxicity, let me know how it works out for you :D
