Found a very good alternative to my favorite Estēe Lauder Double Wear Concealer in Sephora 8H Perfect Cover Concealer in Medium 31! :) I actually have a lot of favorites from the exclusive Sephora line and how I wish that they'd open here soon!
Buzz: Sephora is coming to the Philippines soon. :)
SEPHORA 8H PERFECT COVER CONCEALER IN MEDIUM 31 IN DETAIL
This concealer contains Aloe Vera extracts, Hyaluronic Acid, and Vitamin E to soothe skin, while micro-correcting pigments blur imperfections for flawless- looking skin and claims to last for up to eight hours. It comes in 10 shades.
Find out why this is became an instant favorite of mine after the cut!
Size is pretty compact and even as big as the EL concealer, but don't be fooled by its size-the pan is actually deep and there's more product than I expected!
Medium 31 is a medium peach shade, which is exactly what I need to cover up my post- acne marks-there are other shades available too for concealing and brightening needs. Texture is pretty hard so it needs to be warmed up (a finger should be good) for a teeny bit to make it smoother and more spreadable. That said, I wouldn't recommend it for under eye use because there'll be a lot of tugging involved (and crow's feet in the long run too!). Coverage is medium to heavy and despite that, it still manages to look natural and sheer provided that it is blended evenly-it works on light, medium, and dark spots, and I noticed too that it can sorta' minimize the appearance of bumps! It's also pigmented so two layers would suffice and I wouldn't recommend anything more than that. Otherwise, you'll get this obvious, peach- colored patch on the part where you applied it-it's THAT pigmented!

It is important to note that once its texture becomes softer and smoother, you might end up wiping it off if you use a swiping motion to apply it, thus the dabbing motion is more recommended. It has this semi- matte finish so no need to wait for it to fully settle before sealing with powder or topping off with your preferred liquid base. Can you use a concealer brush to apply it? Definitely, but I still prefer using a finger because its natural warmth and oil gives the product better spreadability.
Staying power is pretty good (around 6-7 hours on me), thanks to its matte finish, but not better than the EL concealer. For those with oily skin, make sure you set your entire makeup with an oil- absorbing and controlling loose powder. Can't complain about this product because it's absobloodylutely affordable, I got more than what I expected (the quantity, that is), and it has fantastic coverage. Wish I got me some back-ups had I known it's THIS good! If ever you find yourself in a Sephora store, don't forget to check it out if you're looking for a very affordable and excellent concealer that will seal those darn marks!
