Product Review: Black Radiance Complexion Perfection Under Eye Concealer

27 Jan

  • Price: 5 out of 5
  • Packaging: 5 out of 5
  • Efficacy: 1 out of 5
  • Overall rating: 3 stars

 This dual tipped concealer stick costs about $6 & is avaiable at most drugstores. One end is liquid concealer w/ a doe foot applicator (like a tube of lip gloss) & the other end is a retractable crème stick. It comes in four different shades, mine is Medium (CA8015). The liquid concealer is smooth & easy to apply, but the color looks SO YELLOW against my skin. The yellowness is not a big deal, since I’m wearing it under my eyes & I cover it w/ pressed powder. But that makes it un-wearable for rest of my face. The crème stick side is a lot closer to my actual complexion; so much so that it’s hard to tell I’m wearing it. Unfortunately this crème is greasy. The first time I wore it, it slid down the sides of my nose within 6 hours… darn T-zone oils! Since then I’ve been wearing eyeshadow primer underneath & that seems to help it stay put.

 Why did I give it an overall score of 3 stars? This product offers only light coverage, which suits me fine. But the purpose of a concealer is to mask blemishes, dark circles & other skin discolorations & it doesn’t really do that. I will probably use it til it’s gone, but I doubt if I’ll replace it. I would not this product unless you need light coverage. If face tends to be on the oily side, don’t bother trying this product. #SlipNSlide
