Product Review | Kylie Cosmetics Skin Concealer ($20, Kylie Cosmetics website)
Product Details (from Kylie Cosmetics' website): The Kylie Cosmetics Skin Concealer is a lightweight formula that provides medium buildable coverage for a skin-like finish. The long-wearing concealer, available in an all-inclusive range of 30 shades, gives a luminous finish that looks just like your skin, and is ideal for all skin types. The buildable formula allows you to achieve your desired level of coverage. Wear alone for a natural, dewy look or pair with your favorite setting powder for a matte finish. Perfect for spot concealing, lightening dark circles under the eyes and hiding imperfections. The paddle flock applicator makes application easy.
Review: This concealer came out late fall of 2017. I never had the chance to review it then, but it has become a holy grail product. I have the shades (see swatches below) Oak, Amber, Pinenut and Maple. The last two lighter shades on the swatches below I use to brighten up the under eye area. The first medium-tan shade I use on many days I want to have a no-makeup look or if I got enough sleep and do not need brightening of the under eye area.
Honestly, in the beginning I thought these were going to be the glorified version of the Colourpop Concealers, but I was wrong. These have a slight coconut smell which I enjoy. I also love that it comes in 30 shades. This concealer is not drying underneath the eye area. I tend to have a drier under eye area hence the reason why I do not set it with powder most of the time. This concealer has a creamy consistency and it is easy to blend. It provides a light and natural coverage but the texture of it may allow for medium coverage, possibly full but I cannot attest to that.
I love the box packaging as it represents various skin tones and it's white typography. The tube is made out of clear but heavy duty plastic which mimics glass-like properties and a silver cap with the brand's name on silver typography. It has a doe foot applicator which is also easy to use. This concealer is priced at $20 which I think is extremely reasonable. Kylie Cosmetics also has sales throughout the year. I picked up the shades Pinenut and Maple during their 2 for $30 sale. I really enjoy this product and I highly recommend it.
