I’ve been wanting a good concealer to help cover my dark circles and other prominent marks on my face for some time and I’m happy I was able to purchase the Smashbox Studio Skin 24 Hour Concealer. I used to have a concealer from Yardley but the shade was not right and it had a grainy texture so it didn’t work as well as I needed it to. This one, on the other hand, is amazing. I love the packaging with the glass tube and black writing. I purchased the darkest shade which is called Deep and it’s a perfect concealer shade for me and it works well with my L’Oreal Paris Infallible foundation. I find that a small amount of this product is enough to give me a decent level of coverage but it’s buildable without it being cakey. It has a medium to full coverage and also works well on other areas of the face other than the under eyes. It also blends well with a sponge or brush without creating streaks. I have to set it with a powder (I like to use the L’Oreal Paris Infallible 24 Hour Powder Foundation in the shade copper when I’m not highlighting). It doesn’t crease much, it’s long lasting, waterproof and hydrating. It does slightly irritate my eyes but I’m not sure why.
Basically this is a great concealer and I totally recommend it. I bought mine at Foschini for R350.00 which is quite expensive for a product that you use on a small area of the face but I really think it’s worth it and it’s lasts.
