Top Positive Review
I have purchased many, many concealers over the years (and spent WAY more money), and this is my new favorite. I am fair (but not pale) skinned and have reddish-purple hued under eye circles that I am always struggling to conceal. For as light as it feels going on, it covers surprisingly well yet still looks natural. It is not like most others that do a good job of covering – they usually look caked on, feel heavy, or have to be rubbed in too much. This one actually feels like it is moisturizing and is quickly absorbed.
Top Critical Review
I was really excited about this concealer as a dupe for Benefit’s Bo-ing hydrating concealer. Like Benefit, this product has a hydrating portion and a concealer portion that apply to your skin simultaneously. But ultimately I think this falls short of expectations. Right off the bat, I was really disappointed in the color. I purchased the lightest shade they carry and it’s still too dark/orange for my light/neutral skin. If you identify with having porcelain or fair skin, this concealer WILL be too dark for you. It can be lightened up a little with powder, but you don’t want to over-do it. Because the formula is more oily, using too much powder will quickly cause this to look cakey. Not ideal for under eye baking. As far as application, I do love the way this glides on. The formula is slick and creamy and really seems to really melt into the skin. In the winter I have dry/combination skin that many foundation/concealing products will exaggerate, so the hydrating nature of this stick really appealed to me. HOWEVER, this concealer does NOT play well with foundation. Whether with fingertips or a sponge blender, I found it horrendously difficult to blend this concealer into any of my foundations. Due to the oily formula, the more you touch it, the more it slides around, so over blending it will leave you with bald spots. And despite being thick and creamy, this foundation is surprisingly sheer. Light coverage at best. My PREFERRED USE for this product after experimenting with it is to wear it on its own on “no-makeup-makeup” days. I wear this solo under my eyes and over slight redness and blend it gently with a damp sponge blender. If not mixing with foundation, this blends relatively easily into the skin. Again, don’t over-blend. I do find I need to set this with a light amount of translucent powder because otherwise it seems to slide around in my fine lines and creases. And again, only a small amount of lightweight powder. I am okay with the natural look and feel of this product when used by itself on my light-makeup days, but would advise against trying to use it for heavy duty concealing or blended with any type of foundation.
