I mentioned briefly this product in another post. I think for me (fair skin) this is the best concealer on the market. I purchased color 11, and it is just right. I once read that the product 'melts' into your skin, and I find this is true. Some concealers crease over time, but this one is perfect - it blends into your skin, brightens it, doesn't look like you've put concealer on, and lasts for most of the work day (honestly I'm not really scrutinizing my makeup at the end of the day!). I would definitely buy this again. Yes, at $36 it's not cheap, but when you consider the product - raw, organic, vegan - you are paying for a high quality item. I also appreciate that the product is in a nice sturdy glass container. I've dropped it before, and it definitely holds up. I have tried a variety of concealers (Bobbi Brown, Beauty is Life, NVEco, YSL) and this one is my favorite.
I love the consistency of this concealer and the way it blends - it takes me literally no work to get this product to cover what I want it to and blend into my surrounding skin. I use this mainly for undereye darkness (which, granted, isn't very dark because I'm still in my 20s) and the creases around my nose. This last week I've started using it to cover up some acne marks as well. It has a nice texture and a little really goes a long way - I'll update once my jar is finished so you can get an idea of how long it lasts. I managed to make a (microscopic) sample from Spirit Beauty Lounge last 2 weeks... so perhaps I'm not your average concealer user.
Cons: there is no reason for it to be so expensive. Even if it IS certified organic. Originally getting hooked on a sample, when I ordered the full-size I was shocked to see how small the container actually was (5.67 grams). It is really terribly tiny.
I am currently in the process for looking for another (all-natural, organic) concealer with a similar consistency and good (non-yellow) pigment base. I wish I had other suggestions to make but I don't. I would love to hear people's updates if they've found something similar/better for less!
Update: I also agree with other reviewers that I think this product clogs my pores (and why wouldn't it? It's basically coconut and castor oil) - I think I can only use this on the skin around my eyes.
I have dark circles, but I worry about the chemical content of concealers, so I ordered this from Saffron Rouge.
This concealer is very creamy, so it works well on dry skin. That being said, it is quite expensive and I need more coverage for dark circles and redness. I prefer the Josie Maran Argan Blend Concealer.
This is my go-to concealer or all-over light foundation. It stays all day for me without having to re-apply. Yes, it does not cover blemishes that well but it makes them very sheer and yet, it still does make my face look really natural and fresh, not red and blotchy so that's a win. I use no.33 for my medium-tan skin tone, the colour works really well during winter time. It's best when I mix it with no.44 during summer though, it can also be used for contouring when I'm more pale.
I don't find the colour to 'adjust to your skin tone', I think it just means that it really melts with your skin that it looks like it becomes one. Yes it is true, the colour does melt with your skin making it look very natural, but it does not mean that I can use no.11 if I am actually 44. You still need to find your closest colour so that it does not look awkward. I have a slightly darker skin tone on my forehead while the rest of my face is fine with 33, but the colour looks very ashy on my forehead.
In regards to overly moisturising and such, it does not cause any problems. I actually have congested skin especially in my cheeks area, and the product has not exacerbated it even more. I did have a problem with my congestion getting worse the first time I used it, but that's before I learnt how to cleanse my face properly. You have to keep in mind that the product contains no water, it's made out of wax and oil, so the ingredients are VERY concentrated, you only need a small amount (that's why don't be fooled with the size + the price, they last me as long as those liquid foundation). Because of that, it is more likely that those wax ingredients don't get washed off properly during your night cleanse. I do double cleanse every time, and I have no problem, so don't forget to be thorough, always.
This makeup is an absolute miracle! It has completely transformed my skin! I suffer from very dry, acne prone and sensitive skin, and it started once I hit my 20's. I heard of this line from a friend a little over a month ago, and ever since I started using it, I haven't had one breakout! I actually use it as a concealer and a foundation. As a foundation I apply it with my beauty blender and it gives me and absolutely beautiful, airbrushed coverage. It is somewhat sheer, though, so when I want a fuller coverage I apply this and then put my BareMinverals foundation over it. I love that this is organic and all natural. The packaging is nice and compact, the only reason I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 is because the price is quite high for how small the container is. But again, I have had this for a little over a month and using it on a daily basis, I still have more than half a jar left. A little bit of this product goes a long way, especially using my beauty blender to apply it. The main ingredient is coconut oil, which I have always been a fan of, it works miracles on your skin AND in your body.
Talk about a waaaaay over-hyped product! Bought this after reading yet another gushing review on yet another chic organic beauty site. In summary: packaging's terrible, price is sky-high, and results are mediocre.
Loved this initially. I dabbed it around my face, then blended with a foundation brush. It gave a dewy, flawless coverage. But unfortunately, it dried out after just a few weeks and became tacky-textured and hard to blend (poor packaging for an organic cosmetic that's supposed to last for months). Then, like the reviewer below, it gave me milia on my cheeks like I've never had before! I think the coconut oil + beeswax + cocoa butter combination is suffocating for my combo skin. My final complaint is this covers dark circles poorly. (It doesn't contain mica.)
Last but not least, the $36 price sticker for this small pot -- with a very basic ingredients list -- is a joke. Burt's Bees could develop a version of this for $10 (and I think did at one point). Products like this make a die-hard organic gal like me almost ready to run back to drugstore cosmetics!
I am not positive but I am pretty sure this product is creating milia and clogging my pores. The price is way to high for ingredients that are so cheap. It doesn't conceal much. I love the packaging and it lasts very long but would never buy it again because of the clogging.
This is probably OK as a concealer, but it sucks as a foundation. If you want it to look natural you can't put much on, but if you want decent coverage it makes your whole face look excessively dewy. It smells like face paint. The bottle is tiny but if you use it as a concealer then you won't go through it very fast. The colour was very natural and didn't oxidise but the range is the tiniest out there. You have to powder it heavily to stop it from shining so it just ends up as a cakey mess which is such a massive shame as I believe the company's aim of having completely natural ingredients is a noble one.
I like this concealer very much, but I have to admit that I find myself trying others when I run out. The thing is it has a tendency to crease heavily under the eyes. So I find myself constantly patting under there to make sure I don't have concealer creases, which in turn eventually rubs it all off and I have to reapply. Rose Marie says that it's all in the application- really getting it into the skin. I just ordered more of this in 22 and I'll have to experiment with really getting it in there to see if this helps at all. I think the coverage and consistency is quite lovely. It's very, very natural looking which is part of the appeal for me personally. You look like you might not be wearing any makeup. Personally I have not had any of the flaking or oily issues as others and I have combination skin. I like the feel, the ingredients, the color and the overall look of my face after I put it on. I agree with one reviewer that it does not have long lasting power, but it does stay put for a few hours if you don't touch your face constantly like I do. If somehow that and the creasing issue could be addressed, this would be a 5 star product for me.
I haven't written a review on here in a long time, but after just trying out this concealer, I had to share. What an over-hyped product! I have extremely oily skin, but somehow this instantly turned my skin into flakes, and as for coverage, it did nothing. Nothing. I agree with the product's claim that it disappears into the skin - after I had it on, all that was left were concealer-tinted flakes. In addition, this stuff SMELLS. Words fail me on the specific scent, but something like rotten Thanksgiving leftovers comes to mind. After all of the rave reviews, I was hoping that my first foray into organic beauty would be a positive experience, but this product honestly couldn't have been worse for me. I will most definitely be sticking with my chemical-filled Cle de Peau and YSL.
P.S. - I also tried the Living Luminizer as well. I didn't see it listed on here, but it's awful, too. It has a similar rotting smell, it feels terrible on the skin, and although it does give the barely-there glow that it claims to, it also gave me tons more flakes atop said glow, and I would much rather just use a little less Benefit and save my nose and skin the trouble.
Basically, if you have oily/combination/sensitive/acne-prone skin, perhaps this line is not best for you.
