Continuing my concealer coverage I’ve been trying out Prescriptives Flawless Skin Total Protection Concealer. Now not all of my concealers contain SPF so I was quite delighted when I noticed that Prescriptives Flawless Skin Total Protection Concealer had an SPF of 25. I’m sitting and raking my brain (which isn’t working very well the past week or so) trying to recall a single concealer in my arsenal that sports such a high SPF 25 and I can’t think of a single one…..Hmmmm….I love the fact that it conceal and offers SPF for my delicate eye area! Sweet!
If you’re a fan of Benefit Boi-ing (the Muse’s holiest of holy grail concealers) this is pretty comparable in formula and coverage. Taking into consideration that Bobbi Brown’s line up of concealers is highly moisturizing and emollient you may seek something a bit more drier in texture if you’re skin is oily or you’re just not loving a formula such as Bobbi’s. Prescriptives Flawless Skin Total Protection Concealer is quite a good deal drier but still manages to remain creamy while offering medium to full coverage. If you love Benefit Boi-ing but you are finding coverage isn’t enough or disappointed that it’s only available in three shades this would be a good duplicate with more color options and just about the same formula plus pigmented enough to hide all your woes.
I actually loved this as it creates good flawless coverage under my eyes without creasing, pilling, or fading. It pretty much lasts all day with little to no touch ups in between. Sadly, if I don’t prep properly it does have a nasty habit of drying my eye area out drastically which is the reason I stopped using Boi-ing. I’m unsure if I’d recommend it for older eyes, fine lines, or dry eyes as the formula can age eyes if you haven’t properly prepped. I think it blends quite well but I really do need to moisturize heavily with both an eye cream and a serum prior to use. I’ll continue using the compact I currently have but I probably will debate with myself should I need to repurchase just because my eyes are so terribly dry and can’t take this particular formula. I so love my Benefit Boi-ing and I honestly felt like the Prescriptives Flawless Skin Total Protection Concealer was a near perfect dupe for it…mmmm..if we can just have a bit more of a creaminess to the formula that may help solve the problem of my dry under eye woes!
All in all I’d recommend checking this out if you have normal to oily skin minus any dryness. I think coverage is excellent for hiding small to large problems. It does a great job of refreshing the eye area and making it brighter and more awake.
