*DISCLOSURE: I RECEIVED THESE PRODUCTS COMPLIMENTARY FOR REVIEW PURPOSES. ALL THOUGHTS AND OPINIONS ARE MY OWN.
Let’s be honest, the past few months I haven’t really splurged on any makeup since stay-at-home moms activities involve house chores, watching the kids and doing groceries for the most part so I feel like there really is no need for makeup other than those cheap drugstore ones I get for my daily look (yes, some days I still try to not look like a “mombie aka Mom+zombie). So you could just imagine how pleased I was to make it to the Influenster Smashbox 24 hour concealer campaign.
This concealer retails at $24 in Sephora so its a little bit over my budget for daily make up, the ones I get from the drugstore are less than $15 so it would be something I’d use on special occasions maybe, the coverage of this concealer is commendable though. The shade that I received to try out was LIGHT MEDIUM WARM OLIVE and at first I was unsure that it would work out well for me since I usually get something ‘WARM BEIGE’, surprisingly it matched my skin perfectly fine. The petal shaped applicator makes it easy to apply especially under the eyes and its easy to even out the concealer .
With my drugstore concealers, it normally takes a lot to mask my dark circles since they are very pronounced but I literally just needed a dab on both sides to cover them with the Smashbox 24 hour concealer. I made sure to try it out early morning to test the 24-hour coverage claim and although I did not leave it on for exactly 24 hours, I observed it from morning till night and it stayed on without needing any retouches, it also did not accumulate any build up through the course of the day. And before I end this short review let me just put it out there that this product is VEGAN and CRUELTY-FREE, so it’s definitely a TWO THUMBS UP for this mama!
