Concealer Series: Urban Decay 24/7 Concealer Pencil
Finally, I am reviewing it. A concealer that ranked a 5 on my coverage scale.
Seriously, this stuff could cover anything. I'm adding it to the list of things I recommend to friends when they want to cover a tattoo. If it can cover my undereye capillary (that sucker is dark and likes to be the center of attention), I'm sure it will work on a tattoo. My friend Phyrra thought it was great at covering things up too.
Consistency: It comes in a "stick/pen" as you can see from the pictures, so it is very dry and formed. Because of this it is super pigmented. I haven't had to sharpen one yet, this does make me a tad nervous.
Blendability: Not so much. It is creamy initially but it sets very quickly, so I recommend using it in a small area and blending quickly.
Buildable coverage: No need really, it is very pigmented.
Feeling on skin: Lightweight
Wear: 10-12 hours
Problems with wear: Caking if not blended properly, I suspect this is because of how it is formulated.
Shades Available: It comes in 4 different shades
In some random discussion with my cousin Ellery from Mom's Life Made Easy on Facebook today I learned something interesting. Ellery says:
"Loving the Urban Decay concealer, but went to sharpen and half the stick fell out! Contacted the company and they said it would happen if I live in place warmer than Alaska (where they test them)! Told me to just stick it in the fridge first next time! So helpful!"
I admit I was wondering this as well, so I've yet to sharpen mine. I'll definitely be chilling it first!
