First time going bare face on the blog! It's for a great product though! If you haven't heard about this concealer you've been living under a rock for the past while! It's probably the only concealer I've repurchased apart from "Boing" by Benefit, and this one is about a third of the price. My skin tends to be quite red, and depending on the time of the month I get a few blemishes here or there. This concealer is probably the best I've ever used and at around €6 you can't go too wrong! It really just goes to show, you don't need to spend a lot of money on comestics. It's just a case of finding a product that works for you at an affordable price.
The packaging is simple. A simple clear tube with a black cap. The only "Downside" of this product is the writing rubs off literally within a few uses, so it looks like grubby and old. But to be honest, if that's the only downside, we have a pretty good product on our hands.. This is actually my third tube, and I know I've started a love affair. I just hope to God it isn't discontinued or something, as a lot of the products I fall in love with tend to get discontinued :(
It comes in three shades, One, Two and Three. Not being exactly pale nor dark, I picked the middle one or "Light" It is perhaps a little too yellow for my skintone, but once I've blended in foundation it's perfect. It's got a wand applicator which makes it easy to cover your blemishes/redness precisely. The texture is creamy, a must for me when I purchase concealer, and I find stick ones really dry out my skin and clump onto my blemishes only to emphasize them!
As you can see in the first photo,my face is quite red, and my bags are a little bit dark. Blame an 8 hours shift! Before I apply my makeup I exfoliate, moisturize and apply my Laura Mercier Primer. I then let it set for a couple of minute before I apply my concealer. The concealer literally covers everything. Even when I have a million and one spots on my face, people say my skin looks flawless. It never is! - this concealer is just magic.. I apply concealer all over my redness, and my eyelids to act as a primer for my eyeshadow. It glides onto the skin so easily, and it's a dream to blend. I actually blend it with my Real Techniques small foundation brush to give me a better coverage. After I leave it a minute or two, I apply my foundation and then the rest of my makeup. Overall this is an absolutely amazing product, and I would be lost without it in my makeup bag!
Have you guys tried it?
