TOO FACED ‘BORN THIS WAY’ CONCEALER SWATCHES

This week I received the entire range of the Too Faced ‘Born This Way’ concealers. There are 10 shades in the collection, varying from the lightest colour ‘very fair’ to the darkest shade ‘deep’. So no matter your skin tone you will find a suitable match within this selection. 

The consistency of these concealers are creamy and smooth - not too thick nor too runny, they’ve got it just right!
I’ve had a brief play with these but I really need to test them out on more clients with varying degrees of skin pigmentation to gain a more concise view as to whether they are as good as they claim.
So far though, I am impressed with them. I personally don’t have dark circles, but the formula does cover my breakouts when they occur. Having tried them under my eyes I was pleased with the results in the respect that the product does not sit in fine lines, nor does it make the eyes appear crepey like many concealers tend to do. 

Too Faced have factored in a blend of colour correctors to counteract dark circles when used under the eyes, resulting in a brightening effect without the visible influence of tiny light reflecting particles. 
Another great aspect to these concealers is that they are oil-free! Perfect for those of us that are Oily, but a bonus for all skin types as ‘oil’ as an ingredient tends to aid creasing in concealers. Once your skin warms up the product under the eye, the oil can often separate from the pigment creating both creasing and caking! This isn’t necessarily a problem for all concealers that contain oil, but it is something I have known to be true for many.

 Here are some other pro features: 

* Coconut Water helps delicately replenish skin’s moisture levels without over hydrating
* Infused with the resilient Alpine Rose to brighten the skin’s appearance and promote elasticity
* Hyaluronic Acid provides long-lasting, skin-balancing hydration for a smoother, more youthful appearance

Side note to the shade guide: Yes the 3 lightest shades appear very similar on the swatch, but it’s the undertones you need to consider when purchasing your shade. They might look the same on the photo but will translate very differently under the eyes if the undertone doesn’t suit / match your skin. 

These concealers are available for purchase worldwide ‘here’ for £21.00 GBP or $28.00 USD.
