Bare Minerals Bare Skin Complete Coverage Serum Concealer ($20) is a new, permanent serum concealer which promises high coverage in an ultra light formula that conceals dark circles and other imperfections. It’s formulated with high-def mineral optics to counteract dark shadows and give eyes a more brighter appearance as well as hydrating humectants to leave skin nourished and hydrated.
Serum concealers are having their moment in the spotlight lately with even Sephora getting in on the game! It doesn’t surprise me considering serum foundations had a little bit of a trend over the course of the last few years. I’m actually not a fan of serum foundation as they feel slick and oily to me. You’d think as someone with drier skin I’d like serum foundation but nope, not for me! But I had to qualms about trying out serum concealer as my eyes are as dry as the Sahara Desert no bring it!
I recently featured Visee CC Concealer in my 10 Awesome Asian Beauty You Can Buy Now post if you recall. One of the things that makes Visee CC Concealer a bit unique is the packaging. These new small click style concealer pens with an attached puff for application are becoming increasingly popular as of late! Some brand new concealers like Burberry Cashmere Concealer feature the same exact packaging as well!
However, perhaps the packaging isn’t all that new or unique just on a smaller scale from products like Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Concealer! I admit the smaller packaging is very appealing as the puff is smaller than the size of a dime which means it fits more comfortably and easily under eyes for precise concealer application where as Maybelline’s Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Concealer puff is a lot larger in size and didn’t quite fit so well under eyes.
Let’s take a look at Visee’s version and formula!
I recently picked up Kiko Full Coverage Concealer ($12) at the Kiko Cosmetics Store in Rockland County because it’s marketed as “very high coverage concealer”. I have finer lines, some darkness under my eyes, and puffiness that I’m always looking to cover up so I’m all over high coverage concealer especially one that doesn’t set you back a ton of money!

Dior Fix It 2-In-1 Prime & Conceal ($36) is a new multitasking concealer that launched with the Dior Cosmopolite Fall 2015 Makeup Collection. Dior’s new Fix It 2-In-1 Prime & Conceal is a little bit of a different formula as it can be used on face, eyes, and lips.

Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Concealer ($8.99) is a new concealer and corrector that’s popping up with a new Maybelline Superstay Better Skin Foundation formula that’s hitting drugstores now for the Summer/Fall 2015 season.
This new formula contains something called Actyl-C, an ingredient known for its antioxidant benefits. Apparently the ingredient energizes skin so it looks renewed and healthier with continued use. This is one of the selling points of the concealer and one of the things that I imagine Maybelline will hope sets it apart from others at the drugstore. Personally, I haven’t used the concealer long enough to tell you how it is or isn’t effecting my under eye area but I can share what I thought of the application, coverage, and performance of the concealer.
