Concealer rave!

I used to be the sort of person who would be like "what's the need for more than one of each makeup type?" So I only ever had one foundation, one concealer, one blush etc. The only exception was lip products and I had dozens upon dozens of lip glosses and balms.

In the last couple of months though, I've changed my philosophy and now I have too much of everything. This time, the only exception is concealer. I only use the one concealer because nothing could be better than it!

The concealer that's now my Holy Grail is the Make Up For Ever Full Cover Concealer.


It was US$32 from Sephora for 0.5 oz which is roughly about 14mL. You can get it in Australia for $43 at mediamakeupstore.com

It does an amazing job in covering blemishes and you only need the smallest amount each time. My main skincare concern is pimples and acne as I often get breakouts in the middle of my forehead. I have a pimple party on my forehead right now so I took the opportunity to take before and after shots for this review.

Lots of red pimples and scarring! I'm makeup free. Ignore the
messy eyebrows :)
After a light application of Make Up For Ever Full Cover Concealer.

I'm makeup free in the first photo and you can see the red pimples and scarring that's on my forehead. The second photo is after I applied the concealer. I lightly tapped a little bit on with my fingers as I find that I get a more natural finish and use less product than if I use a brush. The redness has been eliminated. In person, it looks like my forehead is flawless but the camera managed to pick up a few bumps (they're the bigger pimples - gross I know).

There are 12 shades available and I used shade 8 (Beige). In comparison, for foundations, I use MAC NC25-30 or Punjab in NARS sheer glow.

  2. Holy crap! You almost look air brushed! I agree with not needing many face makeup products. You only ever want your skin to look one way and that is flawless!

    1. That's why I love this stuff! I normally use it on its own without any foundation.

      The second photos is a bit brighter than the first but that was because I really wanted to show that the camera could still pick up some "bumps" on my forehead which you couldn't see at all in slightly dimmer lighting.

    1. It's definitely a great product. One of the best things about it is that it's going to last forever as I don't use very much each time.
