E.L.F. Studio Complete Coverage Concealer Review, Swatches, Photos

E.L.F. Studio Complete Coverage Concealer 4

E.L.F. has a new Complete Coverage Concealer Palette for $3. I have to admit that I do believe concealer is a splurge item. I’d give away vital organs for a concealer that works well at making me look fresher and more flawless. I suffer from puffiness under my eyes, minor fine lines, and a bit of darkness so a great concealer, for me, is worth its weight in gold.

However, from time to time I like checking out budget concealers because you honestly never know when you might strike gold such is the case with Maybelline Dream Mousse Concealer, that stuff is pure, solid gold concealer joy. Sigh but finds like this are rare indeed.

So maybe E.L.F. Studio Complete Coverage Concealer might be another winner?

I did however give it another glance when a reader mentioned how delightful these are.

What did I think?
