DiorSkin Sculpt Lifting Smoothing Concealer Review & Swatches

I purchased this item.

I picked up DiorSkin Sculpt Lifting Smoothing Concealer on a whim last week. I wasn’t really shopping for concealer but it struck me as something that looked interesting enough to try out.

Lord knows I’ve probably come across hundreds of concealers that definitely have enough creditability to gain a spot in my HG (holy grail) list but I keep searching out new ones.

Let’s take a look!

DiorSkin Sculpt Lifting Smoothing Concealer ($35) is pricey at a 0.20 oz size and limited in its shade selection of merely three colors but the name buzzed at me so I decided to give it a whirl.

My eyes always look kinda droopy so I guess I had hopes it would give them a lifted appearance or something of that sort.

Housed in a tiny tube with a sponge applicator I went with the second shade, Beige. The color acts as more of a corrector than a concealer as it’s stronger yellow beige. The formula runs thick and has a drier blend out that wasn’t entirely smooth on my drier eyes. I felt like I was tugging to get it on properly which wasn’t good.

One of the main issues with the product was pigment. It really fails to cover many issues I’d like concealed such as dark circles, puffiness, lines, etc….Oddly enough it swatches fairly pigmented but blends out rather sheer-ly.

Let me get to the point…

DiorSkin Sculpt Lifting Smoothing Concealer is an expensive concealer with a lukewarm formula that fails to conceal and has a subpar formula that doesn’t live up to the near $40 price tag.

Not worth your cash in my opinion.

Love Dior but not loving this concealer.

Tried it?

Do share your thoughts.

    Kinda relieved. Was worried you would say it was the end all be all of concealers and I would have to pony up for it. My wallet sighs with relief.

    Aw, sucks that it didn’t work out. Hey Muse, just curious, but could you make a list of all the concealers that you’ve found as HG-quality? 🙂

    I noticed a lot of newer concealers are very sheer. I think the companies are forgetting what the product is suppose to do. But I guess it’s better than the gunky concealers that look like blobs on your blemishes.

    That’s too bad this concealer didn’t work out for you because it worked out perfect for me 🙂
    This is one of my favorite concealers! I use this concealer to brighten up under my eyes and it is really nice. I don’t have a huge problem with dark circles & I don’t have eye bags, so that could be why it works perfect on me. It is moisturizing and very easy to blend, especially with a concealer brush. On me, it does not get cakey, it looks so natural. I took a nap with it on during the day for a couple of hours and when I woke up, It still looked perfect. It comes in a small bottle but it last a long time, a small amount goes a long way, I think its worth every penny, your swatch was alot! is that how much you used? you only need a really small drop, there’s only 3 shades, thats the only downfall about it. Beige #002 is perfect on me. I have oily skin and it stayed put all day. I highly recommend this concealer 🙂
