Review of Sephora Concealer palette by georgiasweety
This works great for me. After reading all of the bad reviews after purchasing I thought it was going to be dry and cakey but I have not had that problem. It is a very moist/creamy concealer. You dont have to dig with your brush, a touch of the brush onto the colors gives a ton of product. It blends well for me, and builds decently. It is not as full coverage as MUFE full cover and other popular concealers, but it does conceal. The only reason I purchased is because of the blue/green & purple colors. They both work fantastic for neutralizing dark circles, and highlighting creases such as around the mouth. I also highlight my cupids bow above my lips with the purple. I purposely have used this a few times without a drop of moisturizer or under eye cream on to see just how cakey it would be based on the reviews. I have had no problems with it being cakey. Maybe I have a fresher batch of product? But this works for me. I'm thinking because it only comes in fair-ish or "white" skintone shades, it can look cakey or maybe ashy on the average woman. I would advise anyone to try it out in store at the Sephora tester. I can even use this over foundation & powder for touch ups and it doesn't look cakey. For reference I use a full cover concealer, foundation, & mineral powder makeup which is a full coverage product in itself, and I can still use this on top to highlight without cakiness. This does last all day, but because it is one of my newer products I am testing it out midday & applying it in different ways over different products to get a feel for this concealer. I do not use concealer on pimples myself so I cant comment if its breaks acne prone skin out. I use this for shadowy/dark areas like my under eyes, creases & to highlight. It works great for this purpose. The two flesh tone colors are about nw20 & nw25-30 I would say. I was worried the blue/green would still show up under the flesh tones but it doesn't at all. The flesh colors go great on top of the purple & blue. I also can't comment on it looking cakey in wrinkles as some have. Again I use any under eye concealer in my inner eye corner, and directly below my eye. I never bring concealer out to the edges of my eye where the wrinkles are, usually all concealers will go into the creases if you do that and will look cakey. Like most people I am also not dark at the outer corner of my eye, so no point in applying it there. I bought this for the 2 corrector colors alone, and I am very happy. I'm sure MUFE and other brands make a better multi color concealer, but for the price and availability I am happy with this purchase. I like the circular compact and how its the size of a facial powder so it easily fits into a bag. A little goes a long way, & it comes with a brush. The brush works but it's tiny & I prefer to use my own flat concealer brush.
