Is this one of the most hyped about drugstore products or what? To be honest, I waited so long to write this review because I don`t know if I can say something new about this concealer. There are hundreds of reviews of this product! But I have such a love and hate relationship with this concealer, I need to know if anyone else can relate.
The packaging has nothing special, your typical drugstore design. I don`t have a problem with that, to be honest, there are products that are meant to look pretty and products that are meant to work. However, I don`t like the fact that in less than a month half of the writing is gone. I don`t know, but in my opinion, that makes the product look really old and it just annoys me. (it makes me feel poor like I don`t have money for a new one)
The shades are very limited, you have only 4 to choose from: fair, cool medium, warm medium and dark. That`s the reason why I always have to buy two of them, fair and cool medium. Mixed together they match my skin colour perfectly. This comes with a doe-foot applicator, which makes the product really easy to apply.
As I stated above, I have quite a love and hate relationship with this one and it all comes down to the formula. While it appears quite liquid, it sets really quick, so you have to be quite fast when you blend it. Also, I have a very dry under-eye area, so whenever I applied it there, it looked cakey and accentuated the dryness. So I decided to stick with a lighter concealer for that area. (Rimmel wake me up – in case you were wondering)
However, on blemishes, this concealer is a gift from God. It provides full coverage and hides any spots or flaws. Seriously, I haven`t tried anything as good as this concealer when it comes to hiding imperfections. Sometimes I wear this on its own, it`s that bloody brilliant. Also, the staying power is amazing as well, I can wear it all day long without worrying. Plus, it is transfer proof, so you won`t have your face tattooed on your phone.
I know a lot of famous beauty bloggers are fans of this concealer and I can see why, you can`t get anything better from the drugstore. I mean, if one morning you wake up with a spot the size of Kim K.`s bum, this will make you feel like normal again. But try to avoid it around your under-eye area if you have dry skin.
Have you tried this concealer before? Do you like it? Let me know in the comments.
