So That's What All The Fuss Is About - Clarins Instant Concealer

Clarins Instant Concealer

Over the past few months the Clarins Instant Concealer - €24 has been some glowing reviews by a lot of blogging heavy weights. I first heard about it from Vivanna Does Make-Up and that peaked my interest but when Sally Hughes put it in her top products of 2014 I had to seal the deal. And oh am I happy about that.

I'm just going to say it straight - I really like this stuff! It's pretty gorgeous and not for the reasons I thought. Usually I love a full coverage concealer and this isn't really that. I mean it has pretty good coverage but no where near as heavy as say my beloved Bobbi Brown concealer. What makes this stuff stand out is just the consistency and how it looks on the skin. I apply it with my Zoeva Concealer brush under my eyes and it just melts in. It blends effortless and never looks cakey. It's just natural perfection. Not only does it look lovely on the face, the packaging is a big plus for me. I just love that it is a squeezy tube that I can just pop a small amount out and use with ease. It's also quite a big tube so I can see this stuff lasting for quite some time.

My only issue with this concealer is the shade range. There is only 3! I am pretty pale and luckily the lightest shade 01 matches my skin reasonably well but I am sure that a lot of people will feel left out by the lack of colours available. So tsk tsk Clarins.

I have to say I am overall enamored by this concealer. It's just too lovely on the skin and since I bought it I have been wearing without fail every day. It's definitely shot to the top of my favourite concealer list. Dare I say it's true love.
