Amazing Cosmetics AmazingConcealer (Medium Beige)


RATING (out of 5 stars): 4.5 stars

COST: $42 for .5 ounces

THE SKINNY: I knew nothing about Amazing Cosmetics AmazingConcealer until I opened this sample packet. What was inside was a pretty amazing product.

The concealer (I used medium beige on my fair, but lightly tanned face) was the smoothest I have ever tried. So many past concealers have felt cakey or were visible on the skin without a lot of work to blend it in. I swear the AmazingConcealer almost took on the color of my skin as I blended it in … and all the imperfections were gone.

The product also comes with one of the highest seals of approval in the beauty world – an Allure Editor'sChoice Award (2005) – and has Sephora's natural seal.

The product claims to erase circles (check – mine were pretty pronounced after a few days with little sleep), hide blemishes and redness (check – a small pimple almost vanished) and covers broken capillaries and sun damage. I can't vouch for the last two claims, please comment if you know how it works in those areas.

This product must be too good to be true.

And it almost is.

It is expensive. Very expensive. The full size product is $42 (for just half an ounce). A little goes a very long way with this product, so you will get a lot of use for your money.

KEEP OR TOSS: I am saving up for the full size Amazing Concealer on my next visit to Sephora. I'll even pass on a new shadow shade to pick this up.

CHECK IT OUT: Amazing Cosmetics has a tutorial on how to apply AmazingConcealer and allows you to buy direct. Sephora also has a miniature version of the concealer (.2 ounces for $28.)
