[productsample/affiliate] Woo – these are chunky wands for a concealer! At the back of my mind (and I know someone reading will remember!) I think I’ve seen stocky doe’s foot applicators before and for the life of me I can’t remember which brand did them – or still does.
Personally, I like a concealer (although I rarely use) to be applied either with a brush or with a finer wand than this. The downside is that it brings out a lot of product and concealer is something that needs a light touch and building if necessary, not a lot at once and then removing.
There’s a decent shade line-up – 18 of them going from very light to very deep in tone. The formula is high coverage – the 16 hour claim is there for a reason because this stuff does not move from your skin until you actively take it off. I was super impressed with that aspect although I think it does better on younger skin than older skin. Although it claims not to sink into lines and creases, it did, on my skin at least, exacerbate them a little. The finish is matte which my skin never does well with anyway. If you’re just using for blemish or mark covers, then it’s an ageless product and it’s only when you venture to the under-eye that it’s not as older skin friendly as it could be.
I’ve swatched up a selection of the colours, so bottom to top we have: Deep Cinnamon, Light Beige, Deep Chestnut, Medium Sand and Tan Latte. The e.l.f. website gives very good colour descriptions and while I don’t usually recommend buying foundation or concealer on-line you might be able to pick one out because the brand has gone to long lengths to be accurate about the shades. On the whole, at £5 a pop, I can’t really find anything not to like about for most skin categories. My only sticking point is that matte is not flattering on older skin.
