Clinique Airbrush Concealer

I have been wanting to try this out since quite a while really, especially after seeing Lisa Eldrige use it in most of her videos and it being one of her favourite under eye concealer. 

It's also been in the market for long, so here are my two cents on the product.

I quite like the packaging, sleek and compact. No chunky tubes or compacts, just a slim pen like design. Also, this does not squirt out too much or too little product fortunately, its just the perfect amount enough to cover one eye. 





The shade 02 is a light-medium toned concealer with a lovely salmon tone to it which helps in neutralising the purple-blue shadow that people usually suffer from.

It's not too thin as you'd expect. It's actually moderately thick to provide decent coverage.

The only problem I had with this is that I don't find it  moisturising enough, no matter how much eye cream I slather on prior to applying it. Just for this reason, I would use it for areas around the mouth for brightening and for scars and blemishes on the face where it works quite well.



If you don't suffer from extremely dry under eye area, you might actually get away with using this there as it is nice, light formula that covers moderate darkness quite well.

If you are like me who does not like using thick, creamy products to cover scars, acne marks and blemishes, then this would be a perfect option for all over face concealing, if not the under eye as it sets nicely without the need of powder. 

I also think I could have gotten away with a darker shade for the under eyes, perhaps a 04 (NW35). Overall, not bad at all for £16 but make sure to see how it looks in store and in daylight. 

What are your favourite Clinique concealers?

I've been curious about this concealer too after Lisa Eldridge using it, but I'm not fond of thick concealers! Great Post! x

I think Lisa Eldridge has been responsible for the last year of makeup purchases! This is next on my list, along with Laura Mercier Camouflage

@Ruby - You should try shade 4 in this! Or Vichy Dermablend in Sand or darker.
