Clinique Even Better Concealer launched a few months ago and being the junkie I am for all things concealer I snatched it up.
I actually ended up ordering it online because the Clinique counter had a single MA present at the time and she was proceeding to waste time on someone who didn’t actually end up buying anything at all. Dontcha just hate that? I was sitting there for about 25 minutes waiting for her, finally got impatient, and walked to the next counter over to grab something else and proceeded to watch the person she wasted time with walk away with nothing.
I just needed a concealer dude…!
I was surprised while swatching in store how pink the first four shades were. I ended up purchasing the fifth shade which is abnormal for me but it turned into a perfect match so score!
And with Nordstrom’s Free Shipping on all orders I didn’t have to wait for near half an hour to get it either.
Take a look!
Clinique Even Better Concealer is an affordable $19.50 and comes in a tiny pot. It’s infused with vitamin c and promises to conceal, brighten, and correct.
I think the nicest part of the concealer is how natural it looks on. It simply as a second skin look and appearance. The shade I selected, Natural, was a perfect fit for my skin tone and gave my under eye area a bright, smooth finish.
Coverage is sheer to medium here but not fuller coverage for really dark pesky circles. I found it brightened my eyes up nicely, concealed my puffiness and fine lines, and did a fairly good job with darkness under my eyes. The formula is a bit on the thicker side but has a certain dense feel to it. I think some would consider it a bit drying, myself included, however, I feel like concealers can be worn easily without running into issues so long as you prep very well prior to using them.
I apply with my trusty E.L.F. Studio Concealer Brush (so HG!) and paint it under my eyes and proceed to pat into place. The finish is super natural and fresh looking. I did see sadly minor creasing into finer lines within a four hour period however, a little dabbing will freshen this up.
Overall, Even Better Concealer is a fairly nice concealer and as I mentioned quite affordable for this formula. If you like less creamy, thicker formulated concealers without just the right amount of moisture you might enjoy this.
It doesn’t top my list as a favorite in all honesty because I have a fair few concealers I like better but it isn’t bad either and is something I can easily see myself reaching for daily.
Worth a check out.
