I believe that everyone has a purpose in life and I know that mine is to find the best concealer on earth. I’ve tried DOZENS of them, especially the most hyped concealers on YouTube and in the blogging community. See my review of the Revolution Beauty concealer (supposedly a dupe for Tarte Shape Tape).
Where to find it: on MAC’s website
Ingredients: Cyclopentasiloxane, Water, Trimethylsiloxysilicate, Butylene Glycol, Sorbitan Sesquioleate, PEG/PPG-18/18 Dimethicone, Tribehenin, Magnesium Sulfate, Phenyl Trimethicone, Tocopheryl Acetate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Glycerin, Dimethicone, Methicone, Ethylhexylglycerin, Pentaerythrityl Tetra-Di-T-Butyl Hydroxyhydrocinnamate, Laureth-7, Xanthan Gum, Phenoxyethanol, Chlorphenesin, Sorbic Acid [may contain] (CI 77891/Titanium Dioxide, CI 77491/CI 77492/CI 77499/Iron Oxides).
Claims: lightweight, full coverage, 15-hour wear, water and transfer resistant, for all skin types, fragrance free, non-acnegenic.
Application: it’s really lightweight and easy to blend, with a brush or beauty sponge. I personally apply the smallest amount, spread it and blend it with a concealer brush, and then perfect the application with a Beauty Blender. Keep in mind that a little goes a long way.
Coverage: it does live up to expectations. It’s full coverage and will cover dark circles and blemishes without looking cakey and without creasing.
Staying power: excellent, I haven’t worn it for 15 hours straight yet, but I’ve tested it for 8 hours several times and it didn’t move.
Scent: it is fragrance free, but it has a slight smell of alcohol.
The pump: it dispenses way too much product (probably twice the amount needed, as far as I’m concerned) and a lot of it goes to waste. I know that I’m going to run out much more quickly than I would if I could control the amount of product that comes out.
The first picture shows how much is dispensed and the second one show how much I need under one eye.
My final thoughts
This is, by far, the best concealer that I’ve tried and I already know that I’ll repurchase as soon as it runs out (soon, because of the pump).
It doesn’t leave my under eye area dry or cakey looking or greasy and creasing (I’ve experienced all of these with other concealers) and it does a good job of covering and staying on all day/night.
