I love concealer. Its my essential product. If my house ever burnt down all you would find is a pile of bones and lots and lots of concealer. (Do bones burn? I’ll pretend they don’t).
My latest purchase, after being fairly underwhelmed by my recent expensive concealer hauls is this Shills Electra Eye Concealer.
It is very Benefit-y in terms of packaging:
I’ve noticed this sort of Benefit mocking with Shills and Baviphat (I think thats a Korean brand). Very retro. But then again The Balm also has that pin up girl look thing going on. Who is copying who?!
The concealer comes in a little pot:
Ok. So this comes in one shade. Its a light beige, possibly slightly salmony shade. It looks and feels very creamy but not thick – its more emollient that say, the Laura Mercier Under Eye Concealer.
It reminds me a bit of my Bobbi Brown Peach Corrector (love that – don’t know where its disappeared to though):
It looks even lighter on the skin.
A bit too light for me perhaps? I am a NC35…
Dotting it under my eye. I have no complaints at all about the texture – even in the cold it is soft and creamy and is also nicely opaque.
So then I blend blend blend….and the result is this. It took a while because I do feel that the shade is a tad light on a medium toned gal like me.
With enough blending, it looks fine – in fact it looks great! My entire face just looked that little bit more…alive? I certainly wouldn’t advise it for skins darker than mine I think it would make you look like a racoon.
I got this concealer from eBay for about £8 including shipping. Presuming that I don’t lose it in the next, oooh 48 hours (cats love to swipe my make up) then this is a keeper for me.
