Philosophy Miracle Worker Miraculous Color Corrector & Concealer is a brand new correcting and concealer cream that launches for Spring 2014 in three shades exclusively at Ulta and QVC.
I absolutely adore the Philosophy Miracle Worker Collection of skincare so I was all about checking out this concealer because, hey, I’m not only a concealer junkie but also very much a Miracle Worker fan girl!
The formula promises to brighten eyes as it conceals with peptides, coffee bean extract and hyaluronic acid. All of these ingredients did intrigue me for sure.
Take a look!
Philosophy Miracle Worker Miraculous Color Corrector & Concealer ($25) is a formula that promises too much and delivers too little unfortunately.
Split into two parts this is a correcting and concealing duo which allows you to mix both shades of color or you can use one shade to correct and the other patted on top to conceal much like Laura Mercier’s Secret Camouflage. I purchased the Medium shade which had a peach almost salmon shade of corrector and a beige shade of concealer.
There’s really nothing kindly to say about the concealer formula….! It’s simply unusable! The formula is quite dense and produces VERY, VERY, VERY sheer color. You really have to be in fairly good shape with absolutely nothing to conceal in order to use a formula this subtle. Once warmed up it does blend decently but has a tendency to fall into creases easily with very little wear time because I feel like as soon as I apply it, its already disappeared! I was expecting a creamy emollient formula such as from Bobbi Brown and Laura Mercier concealer but this is far, far from it.
Unfortunately I don’t even have much more to say about the product…even younger eyes who might need very basic coverage probably should avoid this one. It’s just that bad.
You’ve been warned.
Sorry Philosophy I generally adore your skincare but this venture into concealer left me with a bad taste.
I got mine from QVC.com.
