|Advanced Mineral Makeup Perfecting Concealer|
I would be lost without concealer and coverage that I can
count on. Anyone with allergies knows how difficult it is to hide those dark
under eye circles. Some are more lucky than others and only have to deal
with those raccoon-like rings on a seasonal basis. Sadly enough, I was
born cursed with year round allergies and waking each day to scare myself in the
mirror due to allergic shiners. Therefore, I couldn’t wait to try the Advanced
Mineral Makeup Perfecting Concealer created by highly acclaimed TV and
Film Makeup Artist, Annie Mayo, that I received to test.
This concealer comes in a tube with a sponge-tipped wand
and has no harsh chemicals, no preservatives and no parabens. Already the
formula appealed to me except for the lack of preservatives, but when I read it also had anti-aging power and pampered the eye area with such ingredients as vitamin E, hyaluronic acid, grapeseed oil,
and shea butter, I knew it had to be promising. However, I couldn’t make any
honest judgment until I applied the product.
|Here is what Beige Cream looks like in color.|
Being light-skinned, I selected the fairest shade, Beige
Cream, of the three colors in the line. The consistency of this concealer
was nice to blend as I worked a bit in. A little of this full coverage
concealer was all that I needed to mask my problem. What I also liked was
how the under eye area looked somewhat brightened in the process.
Still, I couldn’t make a fair assessment of its
performance until I wore it through a day. Sometimes, concealers can
disappear on you or settle into fine lines after a while. The Advanced
Mineral Makeup Perfecting Concealer didn’t have me scrambling to
touch-up after a few hours, which is important.
According to the company, you can also use this concealer
on acne and rosacea.
I thought it was a wonderful product. My only
concern is how long this concealer can keep without preservatives. Other
than that, I loved it.
Do try Advanced Mineral Makeup Perfecting Concealer.
It retails for $24 at Advanced Mineral Makeup. I think you will also love it.
