Essence Match 2 Cover! Cream Concealer Review & Tutorial

Essence Match 2 Cover! Cream Concealer

004-9163511

      I am guilty of not using concealer on a regular basis. It’s not that I don’t need it (I Do). I am just at home with the majority of my flaws; and I am not really prone to having dark circles under my eyes. However, cream concealers can definitely give our eye area a brightening boost even if we don’t have dark circles. Who doesn’t want to look their best? Since I’m a sucker for cute packaging and I love Essence Cosmetics, I thought I would give this concealer a try.

     This compact cream concealer duo comes in only one shade, “Medium Beige/Light”. I was skeptical that I would fit into this color scheme, but I am happy to announce that when I applied the “medium beige” (the slightly darker of the two colors), it instantly blended and brightened my under eye area. It did not give me “reverse raccoon” eyes.

     The texture of this concealer surprised me. At first glance I assumed it was a soft creamy format that would cause me to hit pan within a relatively short time. However, when I first touched it with my fingers to swatch it, it felt hard and dry. This is actually a good thing. Why? You won’t accidentally scoop out more than intended and waste the product. This also prevents (or deters) you from “caking” it on.

Essence Match 2 Cover! Cream Concealer Swatches. From left to right: Medium Beige, Light, Both Mixed Together

The result? I warmed up the surface of the product using my ring finger in a circular motion and then tapped it onto my under eye area. It has a lovely matte finish. Under my right eye, I applied just the concealer. Under my left eye, I set the concealer with a translucent powder. Two hours later when I checked my makeup in the mirror  in my home (I didn’t go out like this!), I saw that the concealer that I had not set with powder only creased slightly. The concealer under my left eye that I had set with powder had not creased at all.

I like this concealer. Hopefully in the future they will come out with shades that will work for deeper skintones. My best advice when using this, since the Essence Match 2 Cover! Cream Concealer does have a matte texture, make sure to use a good eye cream before applying it to prevent it from settling into any fine lines or wrinkles under the eyes.

Essence Match 2 Cover! Cream Concealer is a great addition to their new Spring 2013 collection. If you are a concealer fiend, this little duo is definitely worth adding to your collection.

Essence Match 2 Cover! Cream Concealer retails for $3.49 and is available at HEB, Fred Meyer, Ulta and Ulta.com.
