As I continue forth in my concealer journey, I look more and more at house brands, in particular the Sephora collection.
There are some great products to be found in the line. They’re really improving in that area.
I bought 12 Pecan Pie, but once I realized it was a little too light for my NC42 complexion, I bought 13 Creme Caramel. Both are described as “tan with yellow undertones”.
From Sephora: “This lightweight, highly pigmented concealer provides buildable coverage and color without adding texture to your skin or settling into fine lines. Infused with pineapple ceramides, the gel-serum formula brightens and improves skin texture as it covers, making it ideal for the underye area. The unique applicator ensures the perfect amount of product- just dip, dot, and blend.”
In natural light:
It is lightweight, blends easily and provides good coverage. I would say it is medium coverage.
The gel-serum formula is lovely to work with. It’s a refreshing change from creams, which seem heavier to me. It seems like the lighter formula is good for those who mostly have decent skin texture and need less coverage. If your skin needs more coverage this may not be the best one for you.
Creme Caramel is the better match for me. Pecan Pie I use for highlighting my forehead, cheekbone, bridge of my nose and under my eyes.
This does settle into my fine lines. Everything settles into them so this comes as no real shock.
It lasts all day on me and looks natural. Another good thing about it: there are half shades in between the whole numbers. I wish more companies would release in-between shades.
Pros: Great formula, a wide range of shades, affordable (relatively, at least), easy to use packaging, lasts all day.
Cons: Settles into fine lines, only sold at Sephora.
This is $14 at Sephora.
