Ole Henriksen: Truth Is In The Eyes

The only feature I like about my face is my eyes, but they’re marred by these deep purple circles under them. Several things put those circles there.

  • Genetics: my mom and sister have them too. Mom’s developed into serious bags as she got older, but she had them surgically removed and looks freaking amazing. No one would ever guess she’s in her seventies.
  • Allergies: I have seasonal, dust, mold, and probably other allergies, but the worst for me is that I’m allergic to animals. All animals, including my own dog. I decided I’d rather have a dog than be able to breathe. πŸ™‚ My system adapts to him over time, but I still suffer some effects, especially when he gets wet or licks my face (so, like, every day).
  • Lack of sleep: I get four hours of sleep on a good night. I have so many issues here, I can’t even go into them all.

So one day, I noticed how awful I looked, and started my hunt for chemical help. Serums are expensive, so I needed to explore in the mid-range — I knew drugstore brands just weren’t going to be powerful enough to do the job. After some research online and in stores, I decided to try Ole Henriksen’s Truth is in the Eyes serum.

Day two of my new regimen
Makeup: Loreal True Match in Natural Ivory
Liner: Stila Smudge Stick in Lionfish
Shadow: Stila In the Know palette (desert and earth)
Cheeks: NARS Orgasm
Mascara: No.7 in brown-black
Hair: a hot mess

Ugh, look at those bags! The darkness, the crepey texture! I look ten years older than I am, I think. I started applying Truth is in the Eyes twice a day: once in the morning under all my makeup, and once after I got home from work and washed all the makeup off my face. I’m still experimenting with eye creams on top of it for extra moisture to get rid of those crepe lines, but I think I used Algenist for the past week. I also tried yellow concealer under my eyes and went on a search for full coverage foundation. I’m still working on that.

One full week later, I snapped another picture and sent it to Becca for an independent opinion, and she says there’s a huge difference. What do you think?
