Onomie Bright Concealing Elixir review, swatches, demo

Onomie has just four products in their makeup + skincare lineup, and each one is turning out to be a stunner.  I first fell in love with their skin-loving Boosting Lip + Cheek Sticks, and now I can’t stop reaching for their eye brightening concealer – the Onomie Bright Concealing Elixir.

Onomie Bright Concealing Elixir

Instead of applying a separate eye cream, then a concealer, why not combine the two?  That’s the approach Onomie took when they formulated their Bright Concealing Elixir.  This two-in-one multitasker is packed with 9 natural and naturally-derived actives, which work short-term and long-term to minimize dark circles as well as fine lines and wrinkles.

Key ingredients include caffeine (to reduce puffiness), night sleeper extract (to promote circulation), and alfalfa extract (to calm inflammation), along with Egyptian White Lupine, Brazilian Ginseng, White Lily, Marapuama and key antioxidants Vitamin C and E.

“This powerhouse blend works together as a comprehensive approach to clinically demonstrate a visible improvement in dark circles.”

Onomie’s Bright Concealing Elixir also contains a dose of brightening pigment that instantly conceals dark circles and wakes up the eye area.  And with 11 shades to boot, they have something to match everyone’s skin tone.

Here are swatches of the two shades I tried out, including the lightest shade ‘Shikibu’ (fair warm), and the 3rd lightest shade ‘Trotula’ (light neutral).

Onomie Bright Concealing Elixir Review

As a makeup minimalist, I’m loving Onomie’s Bright Concealing Elixir.  For one, it’s practically foolproof to apply.  The formula’s lightweight, creamy texture blends in effortlessly and 100% seamlessly using the fingers, while also providing a light amount of hydration.  It sets to a smooth, satin finish (even on my driest areas) and leaves the skin looking like skin – never cakey or heavy.  

Coverage is also extremely flexible.  You can apply a few tiny dots to quickly ‘freshen up’ the eyes with a light amount of coverage on the lazy Sunday morning, or take a more generous amount (which equates to about half a pea size amount, if that, as it’s quite pigmented), and gently press all around both eyes for medium coverage on the days you need it most (Monday, here I come!).

I personally don’t always feel the next to set this with powder, as I rarely experience any slippage or creasing (even on my oily lids).  The formula stay put all day for me, and gives the skin all around my eye area a brighter, fresher look (which I suspect is a result of all those active ingredients working their magic)!

Now, I did use a powder in the below two photos to better match Shikibu to my skin as I had applied it quite heavily. (Shikibu is just a tad too light for me, but it works just fine if I layer it with a light/medium powder.  If I’m just using a few dots though, it blends right in.)  Meanwhile, Trotula, Onomie’s light neutral shade – and the one I thought would be my perfect match as I typically wear concealers in the ‘light’ range – turned out to be way too deep.  Clearly Onomie’s shades run a bit dark, so if you’re thinking about picking one up, I’d recommend going one shade down!

I’m hoping to try out ‘Germain’ (fair neutral) next.  It falls right in between the two shades I swatched above, and I suspect it’ll be the best match for my light-medium, neutral toned skin (~NC25 in MAC).
