There were no decent color matches for me when it came to Lancome concealers. But one day when I was at Sephora, I noticed the Lancome display had a new addition: a creamy concealer in a lip gloss tube.
I ordered it in Caramel, the shade that looked closest to what I can wear.
I’ll always love Lancome’s elegant and sophisticated packaging. I feel very chic when I use it. If a woman with the face of a piranha and the grace of an inebriated elephant can feel chic when using it, you know there’s something to it!
It comes with a doe-foot applicator which can pull out a bit too much product, so be careful. I gently wipe the excess off on the spot near the mouth of the main tube.
During the summer, Caramel was a bit too pale for me, owing to my summer complexion (I always get a little darker during the summer). Now that autumn is here, Caramel is a good match for me.
Here it is blended.
It could be a little more golden, but it’s still not a bad color match for me.
From the website: “This creamy, liquid concealer hides flaws, blemishes and dark circles with full, natural-looking coverage. Enriched with a hydrating botanical complex, anti-oxidant protection, and light-diverting agents. Minimizes the appearance of under-eye circles and wrinkles, while protecting against free radical damage. Natural-looking finish. Ideal for all skin types.”
As a winter concealer, this works fairly well for me. It stays put, blends nicely and does cover blemishes. I’m not giving up my beloved NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer, but it don’t mind using this up.
It actually works very well as an under eye concealer. It’s much better than the NARS for the under eye area. It did minimize fine lines and conceal darkness.
I’m going to experiment more with it (wondering if this would work over a corrector). In the meantime I will recommend it to my lovely readers (none of whom have faces like a piranha, count yourselves lucky).
