This week the Lipstick League asks this probing question: Quick! Name the last concealer that you purchased and tell us how it’s been working for you.
Eek! I'm still using the Vichy Teint Idéal Illuminating Concealer I tried just before this sponsored campaign; it's even in my travel-sized-stuffs Lipstick League post. It's a buildable-to-just-more-than-medium coverage with subtle light-reflecting pigment. When my skin's happy, I skip foundation and use only this concealer under my eyes, around the base of my nose and in all those "highlighter areas" to brighten my face. Love it.
When I've got more shadow than usual under my eyes, I dab a bit of Pixi Correction Concentrate in Brightening Peach on first, and top with a little Vichy Teint Idéal.
I do have some new PR samples of concealers from other brands to try, but they're all back at home while I'm away. I'm returning to Canada in less than a week, though, so I'll be testing product shortly thereafter.
