Product description: “Available in three skin perfect shades for fair, medium and dark skin, each one targets dark circles, evens out redness, blemishes and pigmentation patches.”
Size: 7.5 ml/0.26 fl.oz
Conceal & Correct was the very first product I tried from Beauty UK and it is still one of my favorite.
Packaging. The product is packaged in a simple transparent plastic tube with a white cap and has a soft brush that applies product gently.
Scent: The product itself does not have any perceptible smell.
Formula and application. The rich and creamy formula of the concealer offers medium coverage. It allows for easy application and blending without lines or splotches and does not stay sticky on the skin, but may cause creasing in the under eye area, so if your skin is somewhat more on the oily side, make sure to apply powder on top.
Color. Color range is not very impressive: there are three shades in the line – No.1, No.2 and No.3 and the manufacturer claims they will suit all three major skintones (light, medium and dark).
No.1 and No.2 swatched
I will tell more about two of the lighter shades, because I own and use one (No.1) myself and the other one (No.2) I tried on my mom, who has slightly darker skintone.
No.1 is a peachy-beige color with rose undertone to it. Though this shade is the lightest one in the line, it does not look super light in the tube, same as when applied onto the skin. My skin is pretty fair and the concealer isn’t any lighter. The product is pretty pigmented and would work great for covering redness, discoloration and blemishes, but it’s not light and yellow enough for me to use it for that purposes. Besides, the formula is way too creamy for me to use it all over the face.
Believe it or not, I still love this shade: due to the peachy undertone it covers dark circles in the under eye area just amazingly and that’s what I use it for on a daily basis.
This was the reason I bought this concealer for my mom – I thought she’d like it for her under eye area as well. As I said, her skin is darker that mine (2 shades darker, I believe) and No.1, that I tried on her before, was way too light. So, No.2, which is a sandy beige color, should’ve worked great for her skin tone. But it didn’t as well, because it was way too dark.
Wear and removal. The concealer wears nicely throughout the day, does not dry skin out or make wrinkles more visible. It may crease on oily skin, so to avoid creasing apply setting powder on top.
Removes great with micellar water or duo-phase remover.
General impressions. The overall impressions from the concealer are good. I love its texture, the way it applies and looks on the skin. Although this product is not a multi-purpose one for me, it does the job greatly. For me it’s the best product for under-eye concealing so far.
Will I buy it again? Yes, have repurchased it several times already.
Did it do what it said it would? Not exactly, because shades in the range do not work well for each skin tone.
Pros: texture, consistency, does not oxidize
Cons: color range
