As a concealer, this is meant specifically for brightening dark spots, especially in the undereye area, and in that respect, it succeeds. The coverage of the product is definitely good enough to hide dark spots and even select blemishes where sometimes foundation may not be enough. The product also sports a matte finish that aids in smoothing out rough spots on the skin.
But besides its finish, the formula of this concealer is not all that great. One of the more surprising things about this concealer is how drying it can feel despite supposedly being a “serum.” The dryness generally makes it uncomfortable to wear in the regions of the face where it’s meant to be applied. The concealer also creases very easily—sometimes right after applying, making it a not-so-reliable concealer. It also tends to wear off very quickly, which is another huge point against this concealer.
So no, we cannot, in good conscience, get behind this product and recommend it. For all its strong suits, the formula also gets a lot wrong, which makes it less an asset and more a liability down the line.
SUITABLE FOR: Normal to oily skin types.
