Finding a good concealer has always been a bit of a challenge for me. They often crease, or they look unnatural, or they wear off far too quickly. There are some that have given me milia due to high concentrations of occlusives like petrolatum and mineral oil, and others still that have dried out my delicate eye area. Furthermore, I am prone to dark circles when I don't get enough rest, and therefore I like for a concealer to offer buildable coverage for the times that I need more concealing, and that can be sheered out for the rest of the time that little concealment is indicated. My latest concealer discovery to have satisfied my wish-list of attributes was found in a humble little pot from Susan Thompson Cosmetics.
Susan Thompson Cosmetics Concealer Pot in Light is a luxuriously silky smooth cream concealer that offers full opaque coverage, but that can easily be sheered out when less coverage is desired. It has a natural nearly matte finish that doesn't announce that you are wearing a concealer, as many do. It spreads across the skin with ease, without tugging, and doesn't settle into fine lines. It can be applied with a finger or with a synthetic brush, and both ways offer a perfect finish. I am able to get all day wear out of a single application, but it may also be set with a finishing powder to increase its staying power. Not only do I get the perfect natural finish with this concealer, but it neither irritates my eyes, nor does it ever give me milia. Rather than drying my skin out, I actually find that this concealer imparts a bit of added moisture without being so emollient that it undermines its ability to adequately conceal.
