Covergirl Ready Set Gorgeous Concealer is one of several new products that launched for Summer 2014 featuring Katy Perry as the model for the collection entitled Covergirl #InstaGlam.
Marketing on the Covergirl Ready Set Gorgeous Concealer as well as other products in this collection seem to be targeting a younger demographic than myself and after trying the concealer I’d say this is more for a teenager perhaps or an early twenty consumer.
Take a look!
Covergirl Ready Set Gorgeous Concealer is an oil free concealer which is formulated to conceal dark circles and other imperfections according to the brand. This comes in a plastic tube with an attached sponge applicator for dabbing on.
The formula itself is actually really good. I’ve tried many concealers like this from the drugstore and most are terribly dry. This has a very creamy yet lightweight texture that isn’t dry and feels quite hydrating on skin. It’s also very, very easy to blend out. I was very impressed with the consistency of this concealer!
The problem for me is it happens to be very sheer thus better suited for someone younger who isn’t quite yet struggling with tired, finely lined eyes. This does brighten very nicely but if you have fine lines, puffiness, and super dark circles it won’t conceal these issues as it isn’t terribly pigmented and once applied it does sheer away as you blend. The wear time I can’t really determine since it is sheerer but the brightening effects wears off at around four hours for me so that could be a good determination of the wear time!

If I get in plenty of sleep this is a nice weekend concealer when I don’t need a ton of cover up. But really most days of my life I’m working on five hours sleep and need more concealing power than this is giving me! They did a wonderful job with the Covergirl Ready Set Gorgeous Concealer formula but a little more pigment wouldn’t have gone unnoticed. If you don’t have a ton to conceal and desire a moist, easy to apply, and lightweight concealer I’d suggest checking this out.
