This concealer was the first concealer that I ever got. Because of this, it wasn't exactly what I was hoping for, and I wasn't all that impressed, that is until I realised what you were supposed to use it for and found that it was in fact actually very good!
I had intended on using it to cover pimples. Not knowing much about the makeup world, I thought a liquid concealer would be good. It wasn't. I needed a concealer in a stick. Because of this little misunderstanding, this concealer found its way to the back of my deep, dark makeup draw never to be seen again...until I was giving the draw a good clean out and accidentally stumbled across it. I examined it, reading that it was an 'anti fatigue concealer.' Aha! It was like a light bulb switched on in my head. It was for dark circles under the eyes! What an idiot I had been!
I can now say that it is a good friend of mine - so good that its lid is cracked, the label has been completely worn away and I don't know what the shade is (I think there are only two shades anyway).
In summer when I have a bit of a tan I find that it is a bit light for my skin tone, but in winter it is very good. It stays on my skin for a long time, especially if I set it with a translucent powder. Sometimes I feel as though it is a little to cakey and obvious on my skin, but then again, concealer is thicker than foundation, and it's purpose is to conceal so I can't really complain.
It has a good, creamy texture and is easy to blend into the skin. Rubbing it in is no good, but if you pat it in with your fingers it works wonderfully, and I also found that using those eyeshadow sponges (do you know what I'm referring to? Those cheap dodgy ones you can get in eyeshadow palettes) actually help blend it in too!
I give this product 8 out of 10.
My dark circles are terrible! I'm pretty sure I need this :P Do you know if it's still available?ReplyDelete
It sure is! I'll put in the link to their website.ReplyDelete
Nice! I've been using my Kat Von D Tattoo concealer all the time because I haven't found a regular one that I like, so I'll have to try it out!ReplyDelete
I never thought to use the eyeshadow applicators for blending concealer! I will have to try that! Great review:) Thanks for following my blog, I followed back. I think it's fun to follow people from other parts of the world!ReplyDelete
I love following people from other parts of the world - except that I get my heart set on a product and find that it is not in Australia!ReplyDelete
