Claims:

“Buildable, blendable, brilliant: Coveted by artists for its luxurious texture and luminous finish, new Radiant Creamy Concealer evens skin with lightweight, medium-to-high, buildable coverage. Enriched with hydrating, multi-action skincare benefits and light-diffusing technology, it creates a softer, smoother complexion while instantly obscuring imperfections and diminishing fine lines and signs of fatigue.”

First Impression:
I specifically purchased this concealer for underneath my eyes, but I also tried to used it for spots and scarring on my face. I enjoyed how creamy it applied, and how effortlessly it blended into my skin. It looked so seamless and smooth, and upon wearing the concealer for a whole day, it continued to stay put and look great. Naturally, applying any cream product underneath your eyes may crease during the day. The fix for this is setting your under eye concealer with either translucent powder, or a powder such as bareMinerals Well-Rested. This creates a soft, bright, healthy, and set look. This concealer didn’t necessarily accentuate my fine lines (being that I don’t have many), although at the end of the day I did notice a tiny bit of creasing right underneath my eyes; nothing too noticeable or deal breaking to me.

Pros:

  • Easy to blend, creamy consistency
  • Nice hydration and does not get dry and cakey
  • Natural, but buildable coverage
  • No fragrance, parabens, or alcohol, always a plus, especially for sensitive skin like mine
  • Packaging is sleek, classy, and luxurious – makes anyone feel good πŸ™‚

Cons:

  • Pricey for an everyday concealer

Final Thoughts:
I really enjoy this concealer, but I probably wouldn’t use it everyday considering the price. I did some research online, and I actually found some people comparing it to the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer, which runs for an estimated $4-$6. I have that concealer as well, and did find them to be similar in the texture and coverage. So if you’re looking for a cheaper alternative, I’d suggest checking out the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer. The name of this product implies that it’s “Radiant” which to me feels like it would be a term used for something that has some sheen or shine, but this concealer has no shimmer in it. It does a good job of nicely giving a healthy look to your skin. I would suggest using a shade lighter underneath your eyes to really give you a nice, brighter look. All in all this is a lovely high-end concealer, and if you’re not opposed to spending some hard earned mulah, then definitely try this out!
