Review: BareMinerals SPF 20 Correcting Concealer
Bare Minerals just came out with a brand new concealer. This concealer is a light weight cream concealer that will conceal blemishes, under eye circles and any other imperfections. For Bare Minerals to come out with a cream product is huge. They are known for their loose mineral powders.
This concealer is not only to help hide imperfections but also reduces the appearance of any dark spots over time. There is also SPF20 so you will get sunscreen protection which is always a plus.
I like this concealer because its light weight but gives you great coverage. I use this concealer to hide my dark circles, on top of any blemishes I need to hide, and to create a clean edge around my brows.
If you want a color comparison, I use Bare Minerals Medium Beige Foundation and the Medium 2 Concealer works for me. Another comparison would be my concealer from MAC which is the Studio Finish in NC20 and my foundation is NC30. If you are any of these colors, Medium 2 would work for you.
There is a huge range of colors for the concealers. They also have cool tones and warm tones. You should be able to find a perfect concealer that will match your complexion.
Medium 1 has Pink undertones
Medium 2 has more golden/yellow undertones
When I apply the concealer, I like to use the max coverage concealer brush to pat on the area to conceal, then you can either use your finger to blend out the edges, or even a fluffy brush. Less is more with this concealer. Little goes a long way!
I love the compact. It's nice and small but you still get a lot of product (2g/ 0.07 Oz.) It's great for traveling and there is also a mirror inside which is great for on the go application.
Definitely give this concealer a try. Don't worry, the loose mineral concealers aren't going anywhere either. Now you just have more options for concealers. Yay! These concealers retail for $20 and can be found online, Bare Mineral Boutiques and any other places that sell Bare Minerals.
