You may remember the utter joy I felt when Too Faced Peach Perfect Instant Coverage Concealer launched earlier this year because I was every so hopeful that it would be Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Concealer which is long gone but never truly forgotten!
Like most of the Peaches and Cream Collection sooner or later you’ll be able so snag Too Faced Peach Perfect Instant Coverage Concealer for $10 or $12 when it either goes on clearance or Sephora offers some daily deal on it. If it was available at Ulta (the Peaches and Cream Collection is exclusive to Sephora) I’d say you’d say it during the 21 Days of Beauty but since it isn’t I’m sure Sephora will offer it on some sale soon.
I got it for $12 or $15 I can’t remember the exact price but I didn’t pay full price. Sephora had some daily deal thing and this was one of the items on sale. I’m actually glad I never dove right in and paid full price for it because it’s just as crappy as you’ve been hearing about but on sale? On sale I can make this stuff work like a boss.
Too Faced Peach Perfect Instant Coverage Concealer is in no way like Maybelline’s version sadly. Maybelline’s formula was a soft, creamy whipped texture but Too Faced went with a denser, firmer concealer. It arrives in a glass jar holds 0.24 oz of concealer and will set you back $22. Please don’t pay $22 for it, you’ll hate yourself later.
They called it a super pigmented, waterproof cream concealer with a “comfortable matte” finish that contains Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin E. They never truly mention this as an undereye concealer but of course, that’s how I used it because I don’t apply concealer anywhere else. That being said, I could see this working quite well as a spot concealer as you can just dot it out and easily buff it in. I imagine that would work great. However, if you are drier I’d say you’ll find it clings to drier areas since it is rather drying.
The texture is very firm and not terribly creamy. I got out my trust E.L.F. Concealer Brush for this job as I don’t normally use a concealer brush but sometimes you have to haul one out for jobs like this. The brush is a good one as it’s ideal for “painting” concealer on and allowing you to blend easily with your finger. I knew from the get go this was going to be crazy dry and difficult to blend under my eyes. It’s very firm so that along told me it was going to be a difficult one to pull off under my eyes. So, I prepped and I prepped some more. As someone who is prone to drier eyes I tend to over prep to make sure my concealer doesn’t look cakey and dry under my eyes. I applied a moisturizing eye serum first and followed up with a rich eye cream before applying this. And guess what? It applied very well. Ok, so, not PERFECT as I did need to tug a little bit to get it fully blended but not nearly as bad as I had feared. It sort of reminds me of the old the Balm Time Balm Concealer that everyone used to be absolutely ape sh1t over that I hated it but not as emollient.
It’s not crazy pigmented the way they promise. It did brighten up my tired eyes and made them look fresher and more awake. But for anyone suffering from dark circles I’d say this is a skip. The color I selected was spot on as I tan easily and right now I have a good deal of warmth to my skin so the slight peachiness of the shade was a perfect pick for my tone. I can see myself using this on the weekends when I just want something to make my eyes look fresher and more awake. It’s not a great concealer, heck, it isn’t even a good concealer but I can see myself using this for quickie errands out or when I want to do a really minimal, natural look on the weekends. It didn’t crease nor cake and it remained quite long-wearing when set with powder.
Don’t pay full price. I promise that’s not a good idea however, if you can snag Too Faced Peach Perfect Instant Coverage Concealer I wouldn’t completely pass it up!
Too Faced Peach Perfect Instant Coverage Concealer is available now.
Too Faced Peach Perfect Instant Coverage Concealer is $22, 0.24 oz in size, and arrives in a glass jar with a twist on cap. This is a concealer meant mostly for face in my experience with it as it has a firmer texture that allows for good spot coverage that you can easily buff into skin for a more flawless look. It’ll work best on oily skin but for drier users you can get away with it so long as you prep well before application. Although not ideal for under eyes I decided to use it in this area anyway! The formula was dry but it applies easily so long as I prep with plenty of moisture before application. However, some tugging was involved during the blending to get it completely smoothed out. After in place I set with powder and it remained fairly long-wearing throughout the day without creasing or becoming cakey. It made my under eye area bright and awake however, it isn’t nearly pigmented enough to tackle dirt circles.
- Created brighter, more awake looking eyes!
- Very firm and dry, requires a good deal of prepping to blend easily.
- Not as pigmented as marketed.
Too Faced Peach Perfect Instant Coverage Concealer is a great pick if you can find it on sale and don’t plan in using it under eyes as this one will work best as a facial concealer not an under eye one!
