There are a few cult favorite concealers out there. One’s that are spoken about in whispers, put on a pedestal and worshiped. In my experience, most times, they end up such a fail.
All that hype, all that talk, all those incredible reviews…what am I missing?
Amazing Cosmetics Amazing Concealer is one of those long fabled, HG (holy grail) concealers that everyone raves on and on about…
What do I think about?
A full coverage concealer for concealing dark circles, bags, and other woe.
To some extent Amazing Cosmetics Amazing Concealer could be dubbed all that and a bag of chips. It’s a full coverage concealer that literally takes the term “full” to new levels. This one brings plenty of coverage and pigmentation to the table so if you have issues to hide, well, this is going to do the hiding.
Severe dark circles? No problem! Major zit on your nose? Not an issue. This is possibly the most pigmented concealer I own and this would be coming from a girl who has some major players in her arsenal such as Cle de Peau Beaute Concealer and MUFE Full Coverage. If you’re looking for full on concealing action, look no further.
The hype, excitement, and general ho-haw surround Amazing Cosmetics Amazing Concealer is true to some extent but it has some issues here and there you have to work through. The formula is an emollient texture much like a grease paint. It’s not creamy so put that out of your head right away…it is a pretty loose formula, not necessarily watery but not too thick either, right in the middle somewhere. I’m not a huge fan of emollient concealers, they feel greasy to me and somewhat like paint. I do prefer creamy ones which feel more hydrating however Amazing Concealer is do-able and not too uncomfortable to wear but…
You need time and patience.
It will cake, it will crease, and it will look like you have concealer on if you don’t take a little time and patience to apply it correctly. I find a rush job will result in bad creasing action and my eyes will look all kinds of unnatural and less than pretty if I do not take time out to apply this correctly.
A little tiny dab goes a very long way. I’d apply on the back of my arm or hand first and dip in with your brush and than apply where needed is the best application method. You want to apply a sheer layer first and SLOWLY build up if necessary. Use a brush when possible and pat into place. Please be sure to pat as much as possible because it can and will look like you have concealer on if you don’t spend time blending this out plus you’ll end up with a whole lot of creasing if you don’t.
- Those with severe dark circles (this can hide anything you throw at it).
- Those who have tired, baggy eyes.
- Those with in need of minor spot coverage on their face (don’t go crazy applying this everywhere on your face but dotting on small places you need it will help conceal problems).
- Those with drier eyes (you can use it without issue but just be sure you prime properly prior to use and you’re working on a smooth, hydrated area otherwise it will crease).
- Older eyes with alot of finer lines or wrinkles (it’s not the best option for you).
- Those who prefer more creamier, hydrating concealers.
I can understand why Amazing Cosmetics Amazing Concealer gets so many raves. I liked it. It probably won’t replace some of my other favorite concealers but it is a most excellent choice for when I really need to conceal my tired, baggy eyes as it does a great job of waking the area up and making me look refreshed and flawless. It proves a little difficult to work with and it does need a little helping hand to get it into place correctly but overall, it does exactly what it says it will and conceals many major problems with a very small amount…!
I wanna say Muse Approval for purchase on this one but just prepared to spend a little time with application as you’re bound to hate this if you end up applying it incorrectly.
