E.L.F. Studio HD Lifting Concealer for Summer 2013

E.L.F. Studio HD Lifting Concealer

You’re going to start getting those See ya Later NARS e-mails from E.L.F. because E.L.F. Studio HD Lifting Concealer is probably their dupe up of NARS Creamy Concealer.

So expect to be flooded with e-mails from E.L.F. shortly.

Typically when those e-mails starting flooding in I try hard to unsubscribe from them and even mark them as spam but for some reason, they are like a bad penny, they keep coming back!

So I mentally shake my fist and shout BARROWMAN!

In other news, annoying e-mails aside, E.L.F. Studio HD Lifting Concealer will be purchased by yours truly. Count me curious! Seriously, how freaking funny would it be and ironic if it is more pigmented than NARS Creamy Concealer? I’d laugh. Hard.

E.L.F. Studio HD Lifting Concealer ($3) is available in three shade selections of Fair, Light, and Medium with three more color correcting options of Yellow (diffuses darkness), Lilac (whitens and brightens), and Green (diffuses redness).

According to them it’s a high def formula that firms skin while concealing and minimizing the appearance of fine lines.

Count me curious.

I’ll bite.

It’s available now at

    You know what… Tennant was prolly really hot when he was in his 20’s.

  • nancy

    lmao I thought I was the only one that complained about their emails, they’re ANNOYING! haha looking forward to your review on this and hoping it’s as good cuz you can’t beat that price!

    • the Muse

      lol they really are! I keep unsubbing and they keeping coming back!

  • amy

    As much as I looove NARS, I have to admit I *much* prefer the e.l.f. Laguna/Orgasm “dupe” over the NARS, because it *is* more pigmented, LOL. I’ll try to catch the concealer in-store, as I’m now afraid to order online, out of fear of being stalked be emails from e.l.f.; do they realize that they can possibly *lose* money by doing that…?

    • the Muse

      LOL agreed because those emails are all kinds of annoying as hells…!

  • Kasey

    I feel the same way about those emails, I definitely unsubscribed and they’re always in my inbox! I can’t wait for your review since i was so tempted to buy the NARS creamy concealer but I was hoping there’d be a more price-friendly alternative 🙂

    • the Muse

      omg me too. i even spam them and they come back! 😀 don’t…the nars is AWESOME texture wise but SO freaking sheer 🙁 I’ll def be reviewing these ;-D maybe they are good 😀

  • Tara B

    I have one of these in my cart right now! ELF is annoying with their emails but they do have good sales! 40% off orders of $30 or more started today! I am trying the acne fighting foundation as well. The reviews on their site are all really good.

    Wow! A tennant/barrowman reference in a beauty blog? My two obsessions just collided. I love your reviews, plus I gotta weigh in on the question of Tennant’s peak hotness. Did you see Single Father? Yowza! You can stream it free online.

    • the Muse

      who doesn’t love ten and barrowman 😀 hehe! yes, great drama! ;-D did you see macbeth!?

      • aubrey

        I haven’t seen it, but any role that allows him to speak in his Scottish accent is ok with me! Fright Night is next on my list – it was filmed in my home town of Albuquerque.

  • Olivia

    Funny- I immediately thought NARS when I saw the pic too! NARS is my fave concealer!

  • Joel

    Just tried out this product. It is a dream! Blends easily, covers naturally, looks flawless. It certainly lives up to its HD claims! I’d say that the coverage is sheer to medium but can be layered to full. Just keep in mind that the shade range is very limited, and they run VERY dark. I have a medium skin tone, and the medium was far too dark. The light works pretty well on me as far as shade-matching goes. I hope you review it soon! I love your reviews!

    • the Muse

      YAYYYYY! so happy to hear that 😀 I’m waiting for mine to arrive 😀 aw thanks Joel <3! much love!

      • Joel

        And for $3.00??? Hard to believe! Thank you for your amazing reviews, which have helped me out so much!


        • the Muse

          amen on killer budget finds ;-D aw thanks Joel truly flattered you take time out to read them <3!

    Hi Muse,

    I just received my ELF HD Lifting Concealer yesterday and it’s lovely, creamy and pigmented but it is waayyy too dark for me and I ordered the lightest shade. Struggling to find a way to make it work for me. Can’t wait to hear your opinion!
