First of all, this is not how the actual product looks like. It’s just a tester that I was given to try. The actual product comes in a round palette with triangular pans containing a red, beige and a green concealer. This is my first time trying from Essence and I am glad I discovered this.
All three concealers have a creamy texture and go on smooth though they aren’t pigmented enough to cover in a single swipe so you need at least two to three coats for an ideal coverage. I find beige to be the most pigmented followed by pink and green to be the least.
I like that it doesn’t cake up and looks natural on me even after multiple swipes but since it’s thin and creamy, I strongly suggest dabbing a setting powder on top to prevent creasing and patchiness – oh yes, it could crease badly on oily skin. Also, if you dry skin, moisturize beforehand; it might cling to your dry areas and look awful.
This product claims to combat dark circles, redness and blemishes. I have some redness on my nose so I tried the green one to see if it really works. Sadly, the green doesn’t work so well covering redness so that was kind of disappointing. Surprisingly, the pink one does a fantastic job hiding darkness under my eyes. I am amazed because I never thought a pink concealer would work on my warm skin tone but it did and I am glad. I see that it brightens up without making you look like you have something on and that’s just great. The beige one too works well hiding zits and blemishes so no complaints. I tested mixing pink and beige together and that turned out even better for hiding my dark circles.
I tried applying it with a brush, sponge and fingers to see what works best. From what I have gathered, the best way is to gently dab with your fingers and blend with a brush or a sponge.
To sum it up, this product is a STEAL for the price.
