I always love trying out a new concealer.
Although I don’t suffer from dark circles (yet!), adding a concealer to your look really helps to bring out the eyes and camouflage any blemishes in your skin. Since I have pretty good skin right now, most concealers tend to work for me, however, if you have dark under eyes or major blemishes then Marc Jacobs Beauty’s new concealer stick will probably be right up your alley.
The Accomplice Concealer and Touch-Up Stick (C$38) is a long-wearing creamy concealer that covers any imperfections in the skin to give you a flawless complexion. Available in 17 shades, this concealer is full coverage and will provide you with some serious wear since it helps to blur the look of pores, fine lines, and imperfections, as well as blemishes and uneven skin tone.
The first thing you’ll notice about this product is the cute packaging that the concealer comes housed in. The bullet opens up to the retractable stick that you can apply to your skin straight from the packaging. Glide it on your skin and then use a brush or damp sponge to blend out. I will note that since this is a thicker formula, I do prefer a brush over a sponge since I find you can really get in there better with the brush to fully buff it out. If you’re using a sponge, I found that you really have to apply pressure to move the product.
I received two of the 17 shades, Fair 16 and Light 20 and have to say that they both worked nicely on my skin. I paired these with a variety of different foundations and found that the coverage was amazing. This concealer is definitely not for the faint of heart though since it’s such a thick formula. In fact, since it’s so thick, this stuff will not move and you’ll be left with flawless skin that won’t budge or wear away. Marc Jacobs Beauty says this is a long-wearing concealer and I definitely have to agree with the brand in that it lasts a long time on the skin.
Overall, if you have skin concerns, such as blemishes, dark circles, acne, etc., I would look into picking this up since it does an amazing job of covering just about anything. If you prefer something more lightweight though, I would look into other options out there. I do like the packaging and how easy it is to transport. Just toss it in your bag since it’s so small and pull it out for touch ups as required.
Another thing I want to note is that if you have dry skin, then this may not work for you. Since it’s so thick, it might look a little patchy. I have normal skin, which was fine for the formula. Also, I imagine it would do wonders on oily skin as well.
What’s your favourite concealer? Have you tried Marc Jacobs Beauty”s new Accomplice formula?
