LHJ Beauty Ambassador Reviews: Concealer #2


As a Beauty Ambassador for Ladies' Home Journal, I was asked to test out four different kinds of concealer for their upcoming Beauty AwardsYou may remember my first post in this series exactly one month ago today. 

Now as I mentioned before, I can't tell you which brands I tested out just yet (not until their Beauty Issue comes out this October), but until then, I'll be showing you the before and after pictures I took of myself while testing them out. 

Here's Concealer #2: 

The Before (and yes, this is me without makeup on again...don't judge):

 

The After:

I didn't really care for this concealer all that much. First of all, it was a 2-in-1 concealer and blemish treatment, but if you don't have any blemishes that need treating, it's kind of a waste. I was just looking to conceal my dark under eye circles and a scratch. As for the concealer itself, it felt a little too thick on application and was kind of cake-y. And like the first concealer, the color was not a perfect match to my skin tone. It looked yellowish orange on me - way too dark! And again I found that I had to really cover up the concealer with my foundation afterward, to hide the yellow.  I really would not use this concealer.

Verdict:  Not a product I would use.
