You know, when you can’t wait for one of those big days and simply can’t sleep the previous night and end up with tired looking eyes? Well, sadly it always happens to me. That is why I always keep a concealer handy all the time. My eye area is extremely sensitive and the skin is too thin as well and therefore every time I use a thick concealer it ends up looking cakey. When I found out about this concealer from Lakme Absolute range, I knew I have to try this once. So here’s my detailed review on the product.
Product Description: Natural and seamless coverage perfectly conceals imperfections, uneven skin and under-eye circles.
- Second skin finish.
- Superior blendability.
- Skin smoothing finish.
- Extreme comfort.
Packaged in a small plastic cylindrical bottle accompanied with a long screw cap which has the applicator attached, the bottle is extremely light-weight, travel-friendly and easily fits anywhere. It comes with a doe-footed applicator which makes the application of the product extremely easy and precise. The packaging gets a thumbs up from me as I always tend to carry it around for touch-ups.
Speaking of the shade, I have chosen the darkest one of the lot among the limited number of 3 shades namely – fair, ivory and honey. Well, the first two shades are cool tones and extremely fair and nowhere suitable for my NC40 skin tone. It is disappointing to see Lakmé having such limited and wrong shades for concealer. The shade 05 honey is apt for fair to wheatish skin tone and in fact it is the only shade that would cater the needs of warm skin toned girls.
The consistency of the concealer is semi-thick which makes it easier to apply. The concealer can be easily blended with any concealer brush or even fingers. It provides light to medium coverage for the blemishes as well as dark circles. There’s no illuminating factor in the product and it simply gives a matte finish. For medium coverage you need to build up the layers one after the other. The product would be disappointing for the ones who requires heavy coverage. It covers the slight dark circles and acne scars but not the heavy ones. Nonetheless, for high coverage, it is advisable to use a color corrector underneath and set it with a loose powder. The product has a slight medicinal smell but not overpowering at all.
The staying power of the concealer is 5+ hours in summer days when set it with a loose powder. The staying power I would say is good as it is light weighted and gets absorbed in no time. The price is certainly on the higher side than usual Lakme products but the quality is good as well.
- Easy and travel-friendly packaging.
- Nice applicator.
- Light weight concealer and can be easily blended.
- Provided light to medium coverage.
- Matte finish.
- Staying power is 5+ hours in summers.
- Application is very easy.
- Limited shade selection.
- No heavy coverage for dark circles.
- Price is a bit higher.
Price: RS. 900 FOR 3.5ml
Recommendation: The price is slightly on the higher side though it is a drugstore concealer and shades are limited too. The product is very easy to apply and quality is good as well. I recommend this concealer if you are looking for a light to medium coverage matte finish concealer for daily usage. If you want heavy coverage give this a miss.
