This concealer has been everywhere recently. Everyone has it and everyone wants it. I didn’t think much about trying it until I saw it be compared to the Tarte Shape tape concealer that’s exactly when I ordered it., I’m going to do a full honest review of this concealer and see if it’s really worth the hype.
On first look…
The concealer itself is £4 which I think it very reasonable for a concealer, in general, it’s roughly what I’d pay for my usual drugstore concealer (Seventeen 18 hour) so I can’t complain at that, it’s a saving of £18 compared to the cult Tarte concealer it’s being compared to. I got free delivery with this because I ordered I along with my recent Giveaway items, I’ll talk more about this at the end of the post. The packaging of this is actually gorgeous, it’s a glass tube with a metallic lilac label and lid. The shade name is displayed at the bottom (mine is c2). It’s really insta worthy and it’s a nice size for on the go.
The shade range of this is incredible. There are 14 shades ranging from c1 lightest to c18 darkest which I think is really great for a drugstore concealer as most brands have around 5 shades maximum. You can use these to contour as well which is really handy, I’d recommend using a concealer 2 shades darker than your skin tone, mine would be c4. I think there’s honestly a shade to suit every skin tone here.
This concealer has the biggest dofeur applicator I’ve ever used which I think is amazing for under my eyes but I’m going to stay away from using that directly on to spots as it applies a little too much and it goes a bit cakey I find, I think I’ll pop some of this on the back of my hand and then use a brush to apply it as this uses just enough. In general, this concealer blends well and hides imperfections really well, I was surprised to see the majority of my acne covered as I don’t usually get this from any concealer. It lasts well, I’ve already had this on for 4 hours and it’s still going strong, I want it to last another 5 hours if I can get away with it. Looking back on the past few hours the concealer lasted quite well, a couple of areas needed a small touch up but that’s about it. Pretty good going for £4.
Overall I think this concealer is a must have in your collection, you can use the widget below to find your perfect shade
