I know its been a while since I last blogged. I've had some nice new surprises along the way so I've been taking time off and have been taking more time focusing on other things in my life. Makeup and Life would still continue, I will do my best to update whenever possible and thank you so much for the support so far, addressing to the wonderful regular readers, you know who you are =DSo I bought this dual concealer sometime before Christmas, it was released for Fall 2011 called Esprique dual concealer UV in shade 02 Natural. A two tone concealer to help conceal imperfections and minor blemishes.
One side has a small dome shaped sponge applicator, very useful to apply concealer around the sides of the nose, the other side has a soft bristle brush for other areas of the face.
The texture is very fine, not too creamy. I have used a creamier concealer from other brands in the past but this goes on smooth upon application. Theres a light tone and a darker tone available, the darkest tone compliments my skin tone a lot more so the lighter tone has been left mainly unused. The colors do appear slightly darker than the swatches but I haven't experienced any oxidizing and they remain set for a long period of time with a additional setting of a loose powder.
The SPF30 PA+++ has a generous amount of sun protection, I feel that the concealer is more targeted to cover minor blemishes and veins/scars on the face as opposed to be used as a under eye concealer, the Lunasol under eye concealer were more suitable in my case to treat those panda looking eyes.
So far I'm pleased with using this concealer, reliable with a long lasting finish.
