this concealer has taken the spot from the Collection Lasting Perfection as my holy grail concealer…
Application: 4/5: I find the application to this concealer super easy and I think that’s because the sponge dome. It allows the product to glide onto the skin with ease and the twistable neck on the bottle to get the product out allows you to use all the product up before throwing it away and overall I love applying this concealer. The only let down is that the sponge dome, no matter how easy it makes the product to apply, it’s quite unhygienic when you think about it.
Blendability: 5/5: I blend this concealer out with a damp Real Techniques Miracle Complexion sponge. I just think a damp sponge allows all products, foundations and concealers to look more flawless on the skin. The concealer is super easy to blend and I think that’s a mixture of the damp sponge and how smooth the formula of the concealer is.
Coverage: 5/5: This concealer has a light to medium coverage. For me it’s perfect for everyday use and I can use it on it’s own if I don’t want to apply foundation but it can also be built up with foundation for a higher coverage. It does what I want it to, it covers my dark circles but also allows my skin to still look natural.
Formula: 5/5: The formula is super smooth and creamy and it feels super lightweight on the skin. Nothing to complain about it.
Long Lasting: 4.5/5: If you set it in place with powder, which I do, I never miss applying powder in my makeup look, it lasts pretty much all day. I’ve never been one to top up makeup through-out the day and this concealer does wear as the day goes on but not so much that it’s not visible at the end of the day. It also never cakes or creases under my eyes.
Packaging: 4/5: It’s simple packaging and there’s nothing much to say about it. It’s easy to travel with and I like how it has a twistable neck so you can use this concealer right up to the last bit of product if you just keep twisting.
Price: 4/5: It retails at £7.99 which I don’t think is too much for a good concealer at the drugstore but compared to my old holy grail at £3.99..ish, it’s double the price but that’s the only issue I have.
Overall: 4.5/5: I really like this concealer and I think it does a great job at concealing my dark circles and any imperfections I have. I’m currently using my second bottle of the product and I will keep repurchasing until I find another great concealer but for the time being I’m loving this one and don’t see me switching things up for a while. The only let down is the sponge applicator and how it’s quite unhygienic even if it does allow the product to be applied with ease.
