Hello! Recently I’ve been testing out the new Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Concealer and have some swatches and my thoughts about it for you.
This new concealer is available in 10 shades and divided in two categories: correcting and concealing. The five correcting shades help neutralize dark circles and counterbalance discoloration and blue tones. The concealers conceal imperfections, even out skin tone and brighten the under eye area. They contain “lamellar structure pigments” which reflect and diffuse light. They have an “anti-dark circle complex” which uses green algae and amino acids to help correct and conceal and they also have “Asian berry extract” which stimulates collagen production to brighten and smooth skin. And finally they contain a “3D elastomer gel” to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
The nozzle has a little opening and can be applied directly to skin. I gotta say though, that may not be the best idea. More on that below.
The shades that best matched me out of these were R22 for correcting and Y23 for concealing.
When I first went to apply them, I did as they suggested and applied them directly from the tube onto my under eye area. Yeah big mistake. A lot tends to come out, WAY more than I needed, so I just wound up taking half of it off. I think the best way (for me) is to just squeeze a little onto my finger then pat on my under eye. They smooth out and blend in pretty easily. They feel creamy but not overly emollient or oily. They are on the medium to thick side.
First I applied the corrector, which did help to disguise my horrid purple dark circles, but didn’t completely eradicate them by any means. On top of that I patted on the concealer, which certainly brightened up the area a bit. Here comes the tricky part though. As everyone know, the more you age the more “crepe-y” skin gets under the eye area and products tend to settle into those little areas. That’s always been my #1 issue with concealers. Even with a small amount of product, this settled into those fine lines rather quickly. However, after patting them away and blending the creases out with my finger, it didn’t really do it again for hours. So it’s like once the initial “settling” happens and you smooth it out, it works pretty good for the rest of the day.
Am I overwhelmed by the amazingness of this product? No. Does it work pretty good? Yes. Do I think it’s worth $27.00 per tube? No. That’s pretty expensive for the 0.23 oz you get.
If you are interested in checking this out you can find it starting this month at Sephora and the MUFE site.
Is this a yes or a no for you?
