Purchase Review: Sue Devitt Bermuda Triangle Undereye Corrector

Sue Devitt is a beauty line that has recently been introduced into the islands via Macy's. It is a line that I had never heard of before and since it's mainly within the U.S., I don't think that it's very well known. I had been looking at this line every time I passed by the display. It intrigued me because of the concept of this whole line is inspired by exotic destinations and is infused with derivatives from nature, mainly marine and floral. It is supposed to be hydrating and anti-aging. All of these are components that are important to me.

I finally decided to take a test run and ended up purchasing the Bermuda Triangle Undereye Corrector with Orchid Extract. It is an undereye moisturizer and concealer.  It is a stick concealer in a twist type of container. It contains . 08 oz/2.5 g of product, which is comparable to other brands of stick concealers.

The ingredient list:

A swatch on white paper:

According to their website information on this product,  Orchid extract helps to keep the delicate undereye area hydrated, reduces fine lines and wrinkles and fights free radicals. It is peach hued to contrast with the blue-green tones that are common in undereye dark circles. It corrects, conceals and hides imperfections and creates a flawless complexion. There is also a special ingredient called Nylon-12 that expands and contracts in relation to your facial movements. This ensures flexibility in the formulation so it won't crack or crease. It has durability and long-lasting coverage.

As most of you know,  I have a rather large, dark spot on my cheek and it is difficult to find a concealer which will cover it up well. I've also mentioned before how one MUA told me that orange/peach tones work best in concealing dark spots. Since Bermuda Triangle is a peach-hued concealer, I put it to the test.

After initial application of Bermuda Triangle, applied to undereye area and various dark spots on face:

I dabbed a little more Bermuda Triangle to the large dark spot and set it with my favorite setting powder:

Final look after applying Sue Devitt foundation (which will be in a later review):

I'm amazed by how well this concealer worked! You can't see that large dark spot at all.

This is after more than 10 hours of wear. I did touch up with powder on my nose and under my eyes, just a little bit. This is normal for me each day:

As you can see, the concealer is holding up very well on my cheek where the large dark spot is. I didn't do any touching up there.

I'm really happy with the result of this concealer. As promised, it didn't cake or settle into fine lines. It did seem that my undereye area stayed hydrated. I believe that I will repurchase this again.

There is only one color for Bermuda Triangle Undereye Concealer. Since it is peach hued, it is considered a universally flattering color. While there are places scattered within the United States where you can purchase this line, it doesn't seem to be widely available. You can purchase it online but unfortunately, they do not do international orders. You can find it in the UK at Harvey Nichols Knightsbridge. For more information, you can visit Sue Devitt online here.

It works so well! We have Sue Devitt in the UK - I really like the blushes!

BTW, I got rid of my dark spots with two IPL sessions - really works!

Georgina said...

Ohmygoodness! this is awesome Kat! it works amazingly well! is this pricier than Cle De Peau concealers? im totally switching if it is LOL

Georgina said...

evie said...

hehe love the name "bermuda triangle so unique!...and it works so well!!ggrr why are all good stuff not widely available!

@Jamilla--Are there more places available than the one I posted about? I just pulled the info off of their website.

Wow, it took only 2 IPL sessions? That's really fast. I'd love to do that one day. I checked it out a couple of years ago but it was quite expensive per treatment.

@Georgina--I'm really happy with the way it worked. It actually worked better than Cle de Peau when I had tried CdP. The price of Bermuda Triangle is around $23.00, including tax.

@evie--It certainly has an interesting name, doesn't it? I can feel your pain as I love the Japanese cosmetics which are not easily available here.


Jian said...

That is amazing!! I always thought that the undereye conceals that came with brushes didn't have very good coverage, but this!

I was about to say, I haven't seen it in the UK, but then I rarely go to Harvey Nichols in London so that's probably why!

Jess said...

Wow, this concealer seems to work amazing! You are right, there is not a hint of creasing or cakey-ness!

Your skin looks so evened out, Kathy!

galpal.hi said...

@Jian--Thank you! So far it's very much a "love" product. I'm so happy that I decided to take a better look at the line instead of just walking by the display every time.


galpal.hi said...

@Jess--Thank you! The concealer is great and I'm liking the foundation too. Will be posting a review of it soon.

I'm using Bobbi Brown Corrector in Light Peach, but this looks way better. I think I'll try and get this to try after I make more of a dent in my BB.

Great post - fantastic coverage too!!

@BV--I've been hearing of a lot of people using Bobbi Brown corrector and creamy concealer. I was actually going to check it out but then decided to try Sue Devitt first.
