Burberry Cashmere Concealer

I’ve been wanting to try Burberry Cashmere Concealer ($40) since it launched for Fall 2015 back in August but never got the chance to explore. Recently, with the Sephora 20% Off Holiday Shopping Event it was a perfect excuse to finally purchase the Burberry Cashmere Concealer for myself and give it a try.

As a self confessed concealer junkie this one reminded me of Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Concealer and the more recent Visee CC Concealer.

The design may put some people off due to bacteria, etc…but I actually kinda love it. The concealer comes housed in a click pen which has a little puff at the end that allows you to swipe it gently under eyes. You can either blend with the puff or tap the concealer into place with your fingers. That little fluffy puff is quite great at applying and blending the concealer out nicely and for me, it’s one of the most appealing things about the packaging.

Burberry Cashmere Concealer is available in six shade selections which do apparently run dark. I thought Porcelain might be a bit too light for me so I indulged in Honey and it was a touch too dark so beware when choosing your shades.

According to Burberry this is a creamy concealer that “melts into the complexion for an even, flawless finish” and was inspired by the softness of Burberry cashmere. They also claim it has medium to high coverage.

I wouldn’t say this had medium or high coverage. It offers very basic coverage under my eyes and is just enough coverage to brighten, conceal minor puffiness and finer lines, and give me a fresh eyed look. The coverage was suitable for me but if you very hard to conceal dark circles you might want something a little more concentrated.

I find the consistency very creamy but it does set quickly during application to a satin finish. I’d typically say satin was a no go with my drier eyes but I didn’t experience any issues with the formula drying out my eyes or even creasing into my finer lines. The wear was solid at six hours and looked fresh even creeping into hour seven. It blends very easily however, as I said, it does set fast so there isn’t a ton of play room.

The packaging is pretty neat. Unfortunately, as far as I can see, the puff isn’t removable if you wish to wash it. This could be a potential issue with bacteria so it isn’t best packaging in the world. It’s a twist to release pen so twist the bottom and the concealer flows into the puff. You can swipe the puff under eyes and blend using it as well although I do need a bit of patting with my fingers to get everything completely in place.

Burberry Cashmere Concealer is a little expensive for what you do get. I like the formula well enough but for $40 I did expect to be blown away and I did expect more pigmentation. I’m grateful I got it at 20% off. A touch more moisture and a little more pigment would knock this one out of the park and I likely wouldn’t even mind at $40 price tag so much if I got both of these benefits.

Burberry Cashmere Concealer is available now at Sephora.com or Nordstrom.com
