Hiiii darlings!! Hope you're all having a fabulous week! The weather here in NYC has been amazing so hopefully it continues!! Today after I left the office, I walked up to Central Park and just spent an hour wandering around. It was the perfect way for me to end my night. I was so relaxed on the subway that I missed my stop! It's amazing what a little outdoors can do for one's soul!
I am sharing my thoughts on Bare Minerals Bareskin Complete Coverage Serum Concealer. Wow, what a long name! hahaha. Try saying that after a long day! I have always been a Bare Minerals fan so I am always happy to use their products. Bare Minerals is awesome because not only are they concerned about makeup, but there's also the skincare side to things. They really go the extra mile and put great ingredients in their products that won't harm or damage your skin. Even though I am a fan of the brand, some of their products work better for me than others. I like the whole Bare Skin concept but even with my dry to combo skin, the serums in the foundation or concealer can leave me looking oily. I ordered a 5 piece set on QVC and this concealer was part of the set. I wasn't sure what to expect but here we go!
I absolutely love the easy application of the concealer. With the wand applicator, it makes applying it to your face super easy! I personally don't use a separate brush when applying to my face. I use the wand to create an upside down triangle under each eye and then I blend it out with a Beauty Blender or sponge. I then set the concealer with my Estee Lauder Double Wear powder and it doesn't crease or smudge for the entire day! You're good to go! The concealer is hydrating, creamy, and easily blendable.
This product is both a concealer and serum in one so it does create a smooth and light finish. On their website, they claim the concealer "It instantly reduces the appearance of dark circles, discoloration, and other imperfections for a beautifully even-toned complexion. Formulated with antioxidant Lilac Plant Stem Cells, this multitasking concealer features high-definition mineral optics to counteract shadows and give skin a brightened, lustrous finish. Hydrating humectants help nourish the undereye area, while the silky smooth texture glides effortlessly over fine lines, leaving skin looking fresh and flawless all day."
Since I tend to be a little more heavy-handed and like very full coverage makeup, I did think this formula is light and may not completely cover extremely dark circles. I am fortunate enough not to have dark circles under my eyes and I'm just look for a little brightening but if I did, I would probably try a different concealer (like Estee Lauder's Double Wear). If this concealer came in another package with other products, I wouldn't mind using it again but I probably wouldn't go out and spend the $20 on it. It's a good concealer but you can get the same results with Maybelline's Age Rewind Concealer.
