Armani Color Corrector Concealers – How I love thee!

Corrective concealer in four color-balancing shades designed to target specific complexion concerns. Exclusive micro-fil technology allows for targeted correction, visibly concealing imperfections while light-reflecting pearls impart a halo of light imparting a seamless, flawless facial canvas.

Corrective concealer shades include:
Pink (Shade 1) counteracts sallow, dull skin and effectively corrects yellow and olive pigmentation.
Orange (Shade 2) targets olive or darker skin tones to conceal under-eye circles, freckles, dark spots and hyper-pigmentation.
Yellow (Shade 3) balances pink skin tones, conceals red-marks, pinkish blemishes and under-eye circles. Also use to brighten dull skin.
Green (Shade 4) tones down redness in skin, conceals small blemishes and blotchiness induces by rosacea or skin irritation.

I own two – the green and 01, the pink. I have a feeling 02 Orange will work nicely under the eyes as will 03 Yellow but I have been using pink cos it just happens to be the one I managed to get cheap on the eBay.

The Armani concealers come with very thin brushes – they are good for getting into crevices and also for deciding where to place the creative colour.

I loveeeeeee it. Here’s the before:

Reasons I like it -

* It has medium coverage
* It has a light texture that sinks in – NO creasing
* The colour illuminates the whole eye area nicely rather than leaving a strip of racoon
* It blends in really easily
* It can be used all over the face
* There’s a light pearly texture to it, adding some soft shimmer to the skin
* It looks more natural than touche eclat, which is too light for medium skin like mine, and more than yellow concealers that look racoon like.

I think I may invest in the orange – I have a feeling this colour will also work nicely under the eyes.

LOVE this product!

    Hey Row! I have just got this in the peach and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it (note I’ve copied an upbeat phrase of yours :)!!!) It seems to work on the same principal as Bobbi Brown’s corrector/concealer method but in my opinion it’s far more natural. I have the worst undereye circles ever but I can’t tell you how impressed I am with the coverage the Armani corrector and concealer gave. I’m about to try the MUFE full cover concealer so I’m excited about that too. by the way, do you know where you can get ispropyl alcohol from? Boots don’t sock it any more. Is that all you use to clean your brushes? It’ll be far cheaper than the MAC or Shu brush cleansers.

    Hi Nikki!

    Hey Zereen

    Indeed, join my on the cult of Armani. This stuff is AMAZING! and found by accident. I think Eve Pearl always goes on about salmon concealer too, but trust me I have tried some and it just looks – wrong. Bright pink under my eyes but this is a dream.

    Isopropyl – get this from eBay. I used to get it from Screenface – shipping is far too much. Let me find my eBay stockist – its a huge containter so lasts forever. Also the Shu cleaner is like 90% isopropyl anyway. Its so much quicker than using baby shampoo.

    With shipping its about £9 – Screenface will charge you £6 not inc shipping for just £150ml and its the same thing.

    Its useful for santising make up too, tools – I use it for everything dahling. Oh keep it away from pets and kids tho!

    Wow, I sound like a commercial!

    I must get my hands on these. The results look flawless.

    Overall, though, I’ve had little luck with color corrector products. I tried the YSL Tient Parfait in the lavender shade to correct my sallow, Snape-like skin, but it just made me look ashy and pale, like Lord Voldemort.

    Hey Pandy

    I know!!! I have tons of colour corrective stuff and I find most of it to be pants. too hash – I mean lavender and green have never worked well for me AT ALL. This is good though, and I have the feeling orange may be even better
