Today I’m reviewing a product I have had for ages but never got around to reviewing on my blog. I got this concealer palette as a part of a set with another 88 colour eyeshadow palette and a brush kit on sale on the coastal scents website. This concealer palette comes with 15 different concealer shades that can be used to colour correct or contour or conceal. To know more, keep reading 🙂

This palette has all the shades for any skintone be it very light or very dark. The size of the concealer pans is also pretty good and I have no problems with the packaging either. There are three/four colour correcting shades. There is also a light sparkly silver colour which can be used to highlight but I have not tried it that way yet because until now I was a little bit confused as to how to use that. The Mint green can be used to counteract any redness and the lavender is used to neutralize yellow coloured discolouration. The yellow can be used on top of an orange corrector to counteract any darkness and brighten the skin.
The texture of these becomes very hard in the winters when its cold outside and you need to warm them up with your finger in order to loosen the product else it would not blend well enough. In the summertime, the texture is nice and creamy and you can get an idea from the swatches how easily it spreads. The texture is very thick and I would recommend using a sponge or a nice concealer brush to blend it out. It can be hard to blend if you have very dry skin due to its thick texture. The pigmentation is really amazing considering its a budget beauty product. It covers up imperfections pretty well.
Due to its creamy nature it creases pretty easy so if you’re using this under the eyes then its better that you set it immediately with a setting powder to avoid any lines. I have used the light yellow colour on top of my Kryolan Orange corrector (Review here) and it makes the under eyes look so bright and nice. I think this is the perfect colour to use with your corrector if you are light to medium skinned.
The darker shades can be easily used to contour the skin and they work beautifully that way. If set properly, the staying power is pretty good.
Overall, I think this palette is really great value for money and if you are looking for an affordable palette having a good range of colours to conceal and contour then you should check this one out. The sad part is its availability but these days you can get almost anything from the Instagram stores.
