Hi everyone! Today's post is a review of The Body Shop All In One Concealer*, which I was kindly sent to try out. As you know I've had problems with concealers in the past and am eternally searching for the perfect cover up for my dark under eye circles!
The first thing I like about this product is the insanely pretty packaging - it's just a simple, chic silver tube that looks perfect sitting on my dresser. It's quite small so easy to slip into your bag for make up emergencies too! I was sent shade 00, which I think is the lightest shade.
The concealer actually reminds me a little of Benefit Fake Up (from what I have seen and read in other beauty blogs as I'm not a Benefit kind of gal...) As you can see, there is an outer circle of concealer and the little strip down the middle is a moisturising formula including marula oil and vitamin E - sounds good to me! The eye area is so sensitive and requires such a lot of TLC that any added protection is welcome.
The applicator makes this very easy to apply directly to the skin and then blend in with your fingers or a brush, depending on your own preference. I found the texture of the concealer to be very light and almost mousse-like when applied to the skin. It just smooths onto the skin so you don't have to pull your eyes around at all.
This is the concealer swatched on my hand - the second photo shows it blended into the skin. As you can see because it's quite a light formula it does tend to sit a little in the creases of the skin, and this is true when it's on my face too. I think this would be the perfect concealer to use on top of foundation to cover blemishes though as it does blend well to give a subtle finish. Although it's not the highest coverage ever - I would say it's around medium coverage.
Here you can see the concealer under my eyes -it's very natural and doesn't look cakey or heavy at all. I've been using this mostly on days when I don't want a full face of make up as it just takes the edge off my purple eye bags! Even with make up it's a good under eye concealer, but I do prefer something with more coverage for my everyday face.
You can buy the All In One Concealer from The Body Shop for £8.50 instore or online HERE.
