Strawberry Blonde / Hazel / Cool Tone Redhead Who ADORES This Product!
I'll preface this by stating that this is the ONLY concealer I have (or will) used for nearly five years now. Having my coloring (which is ooh-ed and aah-ed over constantly, "Do you know how RARE that is?!", etc.) has been extremely challenging as far as finding makeup shades (and formulations, as my skin is also sensitive...) - I am in my mid-thirties, and find myself STILL searching for the "perfect" foundation, eyebrow color/pencil, mascara, blush, bronzer, eyeshadows. This concealer from Dior does only come in three shades, but one of them is MINE!
I use this one product exclusively as my facial coverage; after moisturizer, then primer, and a spritz of Rose Water, I will lightly draw or dab lines upon the areas of my face that require coverage & evening out, and always blend with a foundation brush. Set with the lightest translucent loose powder by Chanel and blushed with Benefit's Dandelion, my freckly face is set to go all day. Btw, freckles remain as they are (not caked over or badly covered up, which I detest) and the entire surface of my face easily and subtly becomes one beautiful, natural-looking shade.
I have NEVER found another product which allows me such a simple routine solution, not powder foundations, not the pricey nor the drugstore brands, NOTHING has worked anywhere neat this $30 bottle of concealer, which lasts me about a month and a half. Trust me, I have searched far and wide. I generally do not take the time to review products, as they typically have already been reviewed countless times and usually do not apply to me anyhow, as I TRULY cannot wear the same shades of ANYTHING as most other girls out there... (We Gingers have it rough sometimes!) I suppose I am writing this FOR the fair and freckled girls like me, who may see this, try the stuff, and love it as I do!
**Note to Dior** PLEASE continue this product forever. Thanks!
LOVE IT TO BRIGHTEN UNDER MY EYES <3
I use this concealer to brighten up under my eyes and it is really nice. It is moisturizing and very easy to blend, especially with a concealer brush. Its true that it doesn't get cakey, it looks so natural. I took a nap with it on during the day for a couple of hours and when I woke up, It still looked perfect. It comes in a small bottle but it last a long time, a small amount goes a long way, there's only 3 shades, thats the only downfall about it. Beige #002 is perfect on me. I have oily skin and it stayed put all day.
Doesn't dry out the under-eye area
Love this concealer for the under-eye area (I think it's too sheer to use on the rest of the face, for the most part). It's moisturizing, and is one of the very few concealers I've tried that doesn't get cakey and emphasize fine lines under the eyes. It's a small bottle for the price, but will last a long time as you only need to use VERY little - I put 3-4 tiny dots in my eye area, and that is plenty. I use the Beige #002 shade for my light-to-medium skin; it's a good match and you can blend it out pretty well to fit your skin tone, but they could definitely use a few additional shades! I've found a pretty good drugstore dupe for this as well - Revlon's 'Age Rewind' concealer, which even has SPF 20 (unlike the Dior).
