Boots No.7 Radiant Glow Concealer in I Review

Recently I was looking for an under-eye concealer and I was talking to Ana. After discussing my under-eye issues, which really are just sometimes they look a little dark underneath if I’m not wearing a medium coverage foundation, she suggested I check out Boots No.7 Radiant Glow Concealer. Really what I need more than a concealer is a brightener. Radiant Glow comes in two shades – I  (cool) & II (warm). It’s also a reasonable dupe for Yves Saint Laurent Touch Eclat, at a fraction of the cost.

It comes in a click pen applicator with a little brush at the end. You’re supposed to shake the pen and then click it. After that, dot it under your eyes. I also dotted it on my dark spot on my chin. I then carefully patted to blend under my eye and on my chin. I apply this on top of my face primer.

As you can see, the product is sort of a salmon color to me. It’s got a bit of peach, a bit of pink and a bit of beige in it, and it does a great job of brightening.

Once I blended the concealer in, I couldn’t even easily see where it was at.

The Website says:
Reduce the appearance of dark circles and under-eye puffiness for a smooth, flawless look
Look radiant all day long with your ideal shade
Contains moisturizing emollients and powders that capture and reflect light to brighten your complexion
Blends easily and applies directly where needed with easy-application brush
Because computer monitors display colors differently, the shades shown may vary slightly from the actual color

The Ingredients are:
Aqua (Water) (Water), Cyclomethicone, Glycerine, Mineral Oil (Paraffinum Liquidum) (Mineral oil), Dimethicone Copolyol, Magnesium Sulfate, Methicone, C12 14 Pareth 3, Methylparaben, Squalane, Talc, Mica, CI 77891 (Titanium Dioxide) (Titanium Dioxide), CI 77492 (Iron Oxide Yellow) (Iron Oxides)

Price:
$12.99 for .1 fl oz at Target. You can get it on Amazon.com for $9.74.

I do find it laughable that it says ‘look radiant all day long with your ideal shade’ because it only comes in two shades. The I definitely works with my skintone. However, I don’t think either of the two options available will work for darker skin at all.

I don’t feel like it reduces under-eye puffiness, but I don’t think I have under-eye puffiness so much as I have dark circles. I do feel like it works well to brighten my under eye area, which is really what I was looking for!

I found the click pen surprisingly easy to use. I was worried it might dispense too much product but it seemed to be perfect for me. I also like that I can use it to brighten and cover up the dark spot on my chin.

The product itself didn’t irritate my sensitive skin, which is always a plus. The product didn’t seem to have a scent to me, also a plus.

Here I am wearing it with just L’Oreal Studio Secrets Magic Perfecting Base Primer and Hard Candy Moon Glow Pressed Powder on top.

Here’s another image of me wearing it.

Would I purchase it again?
Yes! I really like it. I feel like it lives up to its claims on me, because I’m looking for brightening under the eyes and it is my ideal shade. It blends easily for me and the color works really well on my skin-tone. It doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin. The price isn’t bad, either. I like it enough that I want to try more Boots products.

Have you tried Boots. No. 7 Radiant Glow Concealer or its high-end equivalent, Yves Saint Laurent Touch Eclat?

What are you looking for in an under eye concealer?

  • I loooove the Boots concealer, I bought it several years ago and used it all the time. I’d use it undereyes/inner corner, browbone, cheekbone, and on my cupid’s bow for a lovely highlighter. It’s creamy and melts into skin, just love it 🙂

  • I’m lucky because I don’t need under-eye concealer anymore (I used to but I started taking vitamins and it all mysteriously disappeared) but I DO need heavy-duty concealing for my acne. But since I’m poor I usually just use matte green eyeshadow and cover it with my foundation. It works like a charm! At least as far as getting rid of the redness.

      • Yeah, it’s one of the first thing they taught me in my three-day coverage of the makeup chapter in the cosmetology textbook. Green corrects red. Yellow concealer is better for bruises and stuff like that because it covers purple, and purple corrector (not common, but it exists) tones down yellow in skin tone.

        I was not happy with our makeup training, or lack thereof. What about those of us who ACTUALLY have interests outside of hair?

  • The ‘Boots’ person was in Target when I was in there. They have someone who does.. I don’t know, make overs and restocks. She was standing RIGHT in front of the display so I was forced to talk to her.

    Plus, if you swatch them side by side they are both crazy light, but the I is very pink and the II golden.

    • ahh, my Target doesn’t have any on display to swatch, they just had 2 of each color on the shelf.

      And neat! I’ve never seen a Boots person at our store 🙂

      • Our Boots section is really nice and there is sometimes someone there, but I honestly have only seem them in there on the weekend, so I’m assuming it was because of the holiday.

        The i was SO PINK on it, it was crazy, but the II is really nice. I may do a review of my own, if you don’t mind.

        • I would love it 🙂

          Our Boots section is… like 1/2 to 1/3 of an aisle in the makeup collection, about the same size or slightly larger than the Pixie collection.

  • I’m glad it’s working for you. Touché Eclat is a great product but only because the concealer/highlighter pen is a great product IDEA. There’s nothing special about how YSL have done it at all.

    It’s also pretty cool that you can find Boots products there.

    • I am SO GLAD you suggested it! The Pen is really cool 🙂 And Yay for Target! They carry some great stuff.

  • THANK YOU for posting this! I was toying with getting the YSL one, but it’s SO expensive…

    My undereye area is a war zone – alternating between puffy and sunken, circles so dark they’re black… the YSL sample I got from Sephora a while back didn’t hide it all, but it made it look MUCH better, moreso than any other product(s) I’ve tried. Now I can find an affordable version!

    Thank you!

    • You’re quite welcome Bronwyn! I’ll freely admit, I could not make myself pay the YSL price, which is why I searched for a suitable alternative 🙂

  • This is tempting, but the classic yellow powder undereye concealer that lots of mineral makeup companies have works so wonderfully for me. Liquid stuff never seemed to have appropriate amounts of coverage and blendability for me.

    • For me, powder seems to settle into lines under my eyes. I’ve never tried yellow! I’ve heard of green and peach and pink.

    • I’m really happy with it 😉 Hopefully you can try it and see if you like it. I’m trying to decide now what the next Boots No. 7 products are that I want to check out 🙂
