If you are a regular visitor to the page; you will know that I am forever and always seeking a fantastic concealer. One that won’t crease in my fine lines fade away or worse not concealer all my flaws. This concealer has appeared everywhere from YouTube and social media to almost every drugstore.
I picked this up at the local drugstore for ten dollars. This is supposed to be a super full coverage concealer available in twenty-four shades (my drugstore only had 12) with a matte finish and claim that it will last up to 24 hours. My shade is Vanilla, which is way lighter than my skin tone, but I wanted something for undereye brightening and for highlighting.
The packaging is super simple, doe foot applicator, no smell. The formula itself is creamy but light, it is blendable with fingers, brush or beauty sponge really whatever takes your fancy. The coverage varies from light to super full coverage depending on how much you layer it up. This product lasted easily throughout my work day without moving. It did get a bit oily and start to transfer around the six hour mark. That is with primer, powdered and set with setting spray. It could last easily in the winter, but the heat makes it move.
As much as I love the formula it also creased pretty badly under my eyes. This may have been different if I had used more moisturizer before application. I did set my eyes with the smallest amount of powder, everything creases on me so I am not surprised. I was surprised at how quickly the product dried down. If you are in a warm environment work quickly.
All in all, if you need a quick and cost effective product this is the one that I would recommend from the drugstore. It has a coverage very similar to IT Cosmetics Bye-Bye Undereye Formula in the super full coverage that it offers just at a way lower price tag. The formula is waterproof, be prepared you may have to wash twice to get it all off. Give it a try and let me know your thoughts.
