Sleek Luminaire Concealer

Sleek Luminaire Concealer has been released recently and I have been trying out once since a while so thought I’d update you guys about it.

It comes in a variety of 5 shades and I have 02 which is the second lightest. It is too light for my NC30 skin colour and I could have done with 03 I guess. Regardless, I try to make it work for me as it is good stuff.

Unlike its name, it is not a concealer that will give you ‘luminous’ or a dewy finish. Although you may assume it is a lightweight concealer just like the touch√© √©clat, it is not. In fact it is a full coverage matte concealer. Surprised much? I was!

It is light weight in consistency and does not settle into fine lines. It also dries pretty quickly so you have to blend it really well. It does however work well at brightening the under eye area, as the name suggests.

Also, as it is quite pigmented, it would work really well for covering up blemishes and acne scarring. But remember, the shade that works well for under the eyes may not always be the right shade to cover blemishes. 

You want a correcting shade for the dark circles and a shade that is similar to your skin tone or foundation for your acne scarring or blemishes. 

Just to show you that it is actually a full coverage concealer. Just a tad bit light for me!

For £6.49, this is a steal and maybe the most pigmented concealer you’ll come across in a drugstore. It comes in a click top like packaging which is convenient and hygienic as there is no chance of you double dipping in the concealer.

I really cannot find any flaws in it besides that it could have been a bit more moisturizing. On the whole, I think I am going to get myself another shade soon.

Do check these out at Superdrug or at Sleekmakeup.com. They ship internationally too.
