Concealer Review Series: LORAC Double FeatureMonday, August 22, 2011
It's been a little while since I reviewed a concealer, so today I thought I'd share a multi-tasker. In this product there is a light concealer, a roller ball to help blend that concealer and a great highlighter. It's highly portable, so perfect for travel or just keeping in your purse. While the coverage isn't of the level that I prefer for my undereye area, I have found that a few quick swipes in my t-zone over my tinted moisturizer and then blended well is just perfect for days that I need a tad more coverage but don't want to up my routine to a foundation.
The concealer is a stick foundation, hiding under the cap. It is not dry, it seems to have silicone in it since it is slippery feeling. I found that this really helps with blending. Inside of the cap you'll find a plastic roller ball, when rubbed over an area it helps to blend. It definitely works, though I did find this more time consuming than using my fingertip.
At the other end you'll find a highlighter, in a matching skin tone. The highlighter is liquid and comes with a felt covered applicator. A little goes a long way, so be careful! I think this is meant to be used under the eye, though I definitely felt that there was too much shimmer to do so. I found that it was great for the brow bone, inner corner of the eye and cheek bone.
