Review: ELF Studio Corrective Concealer

While I'm still searching for HG concealer. ELF Studio range come out with this, ELF Studio Corrective Concealer. I thought it would be worth for trying. As I really need a strong concealer to cover my dark eyes circle.
ELF Studio Corrective Concealer conceals under-eye darkness, blemishes and other skin imperfections with customized coverage. Brightens under-eye circles and neutralizes redness. Convenient size for on-the-go travel. The best part it come with 4 colours: nude, beige, lilac and green.You must be wondering how to use this product as it comes with so many colours. Use the nude and beige shades to conceal problematic areas. Use the green shade to neutralize redness like that of acne and the lilac shade to brighten yellow tones.
The compact come with a very professional sleek style and it fits well in your handbag. It also have a small mirror that enough for you to have a clear view of your eyes. It also comes with a tiny brush but it does not pick the product up well. So after using it once, I never use it anymore. Preferably to use my finger.
L to R: nude, green, lilac and beige

The texture of the concealer are quite smooth and lightweight. It is very easy to blend but the coverage is too sheer! At least for me. As the picture above, I have to swipe the product for 3 times or the color won't show up. But it turns out to be very sticky for my liking. The smell of this product is similiar as a plastic smell. Which I don't really like. Can't you imagine putting plastic on your face?

The nude is supposed to brighten your face but it is quite shimmery for my liking. (Why do you need a concealer that shimmer?) The green is to neutralize my redness especially my nose area. But it does NOTHING to it until I have to pick up so much product which look too cakey. Boo! The lilac just like a normal highlighter to me than concealer. The only colour that might work for me is beige. Which is a bit yellowish to me. I try to apply it under my eye circle and it does conceal a bit as I do have a terrible dark eye circles. But, it turn GREYISH after I applied my foundation.

Rating: 1/5 (Boo!)

I have a high hope on this product but it was a disappointment for me. I try to like this product by giving it a second chance, i applied and thorougly rubbed it yet it was pretty much like NOTHING. I think it will works well for those who has good skin with little blemishes problem and for those who have fair/pale skin. Anyone care to share? For me, it shows nothing.

Lynn: For ELF Studio range, this was really a disappointment to me. But they have another concealer which I found it great. Will review it soon.
So how's the coverage of mineral concealer? I wonder will it be too drying.

the mineral concealer im using is not from e.l.f's.
im using signature minerals.
a sample size can last a long long time and it costs only rm 10.
plus minerals are pure products so it wont worsen my pimples.

i think its working great on me.
i personally hate using pencil/stick concealer on pimples cause when the pimple dry, using stick concealer will leave a mark on the drying skin which is difficult to blend :P
liquid wears off so i'll stick to minerals.
owh and i NEVER use cream concealers on pimple because cream breeds bacteria faster than powder :P
