I picked this It Cosmetics concealer up a couple of months ago from Sephora in Sydney in the mini size. They definitely got me, as it was one of those splurge in the moment of walking up to the counter things. I’d heard a lot about this before and I do have pretty bad under eye circles so I justified it and grabbed it on the way to pay.
The shade all the mini It Cosmetic concealers come in (at least the ones they had there) were Light so that is the shade I got. The tube is a mini, so it is pretty small and quite simple, plain black packaging with white writing. I do like how secure the lid is though, as there is nothing worse than spilled makeup. Having said that, with a tiny squeeze a lot comes out, far more than I personally would use, so it does waste a bit of product fast.
In terms of the consistency however, I have to say I am definitely not a fan. The concealer is thick, sticky and very heavy (especially for under eyes). I tried to use it first just with my fingers but I found it too thick and couldn’t make it work. I then tried it with a beauty blender and although that spread it out better, it patched and separated as I applied it. Having pushed past the application, the concealer creased really fast and made my under eye area look heavy and just a bit of a general mess. Although the coverage was there, the consistency just didn’t work for me at all.
I’m glad I got the small version of this to test out as I definitely would have regretted the full size. I’m not sure if maybe I just got an old or dodgy one but it was quite disappointing. Have you tried this It Cosmetics concealer before? What did you think?
