You may remember seeing this from my Makeup for Me & My Kit post. I initially used this in my makeup kit and then I just had to try it out on myself.
OK so let’s talk pros first. All the concealers are quite creamy and this palette does retail for only £6. This is the light/medium palette and I wish I had picked up the light version. I think there is an ok range of colours, although 2 of the shades are very similar. I find the best way to apply this is with the Real Techniques Deluxe Crease Brush and stippling it on. No for some of the cons! It can be a pain to blend out, so start with a small amount. To get good coverage you need to build this up a bit and then you run the risk of it become cakey – which is very easily done. This is also not ideal for concealing under your eyes, it tends to crease really easily – so for those of us with a few wrinkles under there it is just not worth the hassle. I end up checking it throughout the day and blending it back in regularly, also if you do this with a heavy hand it looks horrendous. Sadly this also doesn’t wear particularly well and I’ve noticed it breaking down after only a few hours, not great if you wanted to use this on clients!
There are 8 shades in the palette and I have swatched them left to right from the palette, going from top to bottom then top bottom all the way across. The swatches appear quite pigmented, which is the case on initial application but once you begin to blend out the edges, you of course lose some of that pigmentation and coverage.
Also if you are like myself and very pale, this is not that palette for you, the lightest shade is still pretty obvious on the skin. So if you really must test out this product, pick up the lightest palette. I am a bit disappointed in this palette, but for £6 I can’t expect miracles however, I know that there are some good budget concealer palettes out there, please tell me if you know of any!!
