I bought this from Drugstore.com when there was a BOGO going on. It originally cost $9.79 each. It is one of the highly raved drugstore concealer in the US. The product descriptions are stated below.
"3-in-1 Concealer for Eyes instantly hides dark circles, reduces the look of puffiness and fine lines and helps protect the sensitive eye area with SPF 20.
This multi-tasking concealer instantly camouflages dark circles, reduces the appearance of puffiness and fine lines and protects with non-irritating SPF 20--all in one easy step. The ultra-blendable, skin-conditioning formula provides natural-looking coverage, won't settle into fine lines and is safe for contact-lens wearers."
The product consist of 0.37 oz tube. Has SPF 20 and offers 4 shades. My shade is in Medium 15 (MAC NC42 user).
It has a rather thick consistency to it. I does not have any scent. Very blendable. If you can see the pictures above, it blends really well on my hand, let alone under my eye.Almost reminds me of the kat von d tattoo concealer that i have been using and raving previously.
If you can see, before i apply the concealer, my under eye circle is not as dark as it used to be. Side track abit, i use the Body Shop nutriganics eyecrea,. I realise the differences. PLUS catching up on my sleep helps as well. Haha! Anyways, back to the concealer, you can tell that i look like i never use any concealer. It is almost unnoticeable. The concealer works so well that i am able to just apply it under my eye without proper application. I can use my fingers or brush and it still looks good and blends very well.
Plus, it last for almost 8 hours. No fading. No shifting. Its there. I do not have to worry about my under eye looking all gray too. And this concealer has never once irritate my eyes. I have a very sensitive eye. Even MAC sculpt concealer irritates my eyes sometimes. I really do love this concealer. Its inexpensive, it covers flaws PLUS it is an eye cream itself! So you kill two birds with one stone! Definitely will buy more of these!
When i first recieved this, the packaging and size completely reminds me of my ZA concealer which i used ages ago. So i took it out to do a mini comparison. So to all my singaporean readers, this is dedicated for you!!! Whether or not we need to get a concealer across the region? Is it similar? Is it worth it?
I could not remember the cost anymore but a Za concealer (9g) cost at least SGD$12. You can get it in any local drugstore.
Neutrogena concealer (10.4g) however, you have to order from drugstore.com. Based on the retail price, it cost about SGD$14.
If you can see, when i squeeze both formula out of their tube, you can barely tell them apart. The tint and shade looks similar. But when i start rubbing it out, i realize that the ZA concealer is a tad watery, and the neutrogena concelaer is more creamier. Plus i realize ZA concealer has yellow undertone to it, while the neutrogena has a pink undertone to it. Like many MAC concealer, the MA will recommend an NW range of concealers for NC foundation users. But this might be wrong as many yellow tone skins would prefer a yellow tone concealer. So it is really personal preferences. But i prefer the pink tone more as the ZA concealer makes my undereye appear very gray.
Now, whether they work the same is the main question!
In my own opinion, the ZA concealer does not last as long as the Neutrogena concealer did. It fades after about 6 hours upon usage and i can see my undereye circle yet again. With the Neutrogena concealer, i do not have to worry about it. In terms of long lasting concealer, Neutrogena wins.
So i would say, HOP ON THE NEXT DRUGSTORE SPREE AND GET YOURSELF THE CONCEALER!
