£20.50 makes for an expensive concealer. It needs to live up to the hype.
I bought the Make Up For Ever Full Cover concealer in shade #1 a few months ago. I was looking for a great all rounder that I could use under my eyes and to cover blemishes. On paper at least, this seemed to fit the bill.
It’s fragrance-free, non-comedegenic and suitable for sensitive skin… blah, blah, blah. All I really care about is this… Does it cover? Does it cake?
Yes and No.
There, review done.
Yeah… you wish…
For such a professional brand, I was hoping for a touch more longevity from this concealer.
I apply just the tiniest amount under my eye and it spreads out beautifully without dragging or settling into fine lines. I set it with a touch of powder and hope for the best. It gives a beautiful finish. Though not brightening, it will disguise any obvious dark circles really rather well and a little goes a very long way.
The shade range is marvellous, I usually opt for the lightest, and unfortunately for me…. #1 is a touch too light and gives me a slight ashy look under the eyes, I should have gone for #2 or #3 but for paler gals than me, I know this will be great news!
It covers blemishes nicely, though I find that 2 thin coats works better than one thick one (doesn’t it always?). This also tones down redness on my nose, though I do occasionally find that it clings to the dry patches there if I’m not well-moisturised enough.
So back to my longevity issue. This lasts about 4 hours on me… so it sadly doesn’t see me through a working day.
Would I recommend it? Yes, I think I would… despite the price tag, I think it’s a pretty lovely full coverage concealer that gives great results without looking like you’re using a full coverage concealer.
See how nicely it blends out and how a teeny amount pretty much covered the back of my hand?
