MAC Mineralize Charged Water Moisture Eye Cream
I thought I would write a quick little review on my latest MAC purchase as this is one of their products that I am elated to see is finally here in NZ. Being the makeup/beauty product junkie that I am, I do get tend to purchase quite a bit of makeup (yes, a lot of MAC, but also many other brands) so I tend not to blog on every beauty item I get unless it’s a product that I am really excited about, mainly because if I did, I would be blogging every day solely on beauty products (don’t judge, there are worse addictions than fashion and beauty!).
I digress! I had already heard some great things about this product from friends in the industry that are based in the US. Apparently this product has been around before, but it was one of MAC’s Limited Edition ranges, so I wasnt able to get my hands on it until now.
The MAC Mineralize Charged Water Moisture Eye Cream states: this is a luxuriously rich eye cream. Infused with ionized Super-Duo Charged Water technology, it moisturises and adds radiance, while instantly – and over time – reducing the look of dark circles, lines and puffiness. Whilst I can’t speak for the dark circles and fine lines, it sure as heck feels amazing the moment you apply it under your eyes (you can actually feel the cooling effect) and it certainly does reduce puffiness (perfect after one of my insomnia filled nights). It also wears well under makeup and is very versatile in that you can use this day and/or night (although given the price, you might want to just stick to using it in the mornings). Another huge draw card for me is that this product hasn’t caused milia (something that often occurs when a product is simply too rich and heavy for your face – particularly the eye area where the skin is more delicate). I am in LOVE with this eye cream and I will definitely be re-purchasing.
Whilst I know it’s all about the product, I do have to comment on the packaging – its gorgeous!! (yes I’m a marketers dream and the perfect consumer), however it is indeed quite pricey. This 15 ml tub is NZD$82.00.
Now I don’t know if this is once again a limited edition product, so if you are interested in purchasing your own little pot of ‘puff reducing goodness’, you may want head into a MAC store sooner rather than later, or just give them a call to see how long it will be around for.
Wishing you all wrinkle free eyes.
