Product Review: Amazing Cosmetics Amazing Concealer

I’ve always been like Goldilocks when it came to concealer. One was too thick, one was too thin, one was too yellow, and one was too pink.  The thick ones were dry, and just sat on my skin and didn’t blend.  The thin ones absorbed (despite the primer), didn’t cover the blue tinge, and never lasted past my subway trip to work.

Maria and I found Amazing Cosmetics Amazing Concealer  on one of our binges at Sephora.  I know the name is cheesy, but don’t be deterred. Amazing Concealer  is literally the only concealer I’ve ever used that literally flattens my puffy eyes.  When Maria initially tested it on my hand, I thought it would be too thick and drying. She disagreed and lightly patted the smallest amount below my eyes and showed me the mirror. Wow.

She shot me an accusatory look, “Did you see how little I used?  Janna, if you want this to look good, you MUST use the tiniest amount.” She spoke to me like a little girl about this because I have a reputation for using too much product. (Okay, I tend to use too much product)

Obviously I bought the concealer, but the true challenge was applying it myself.  It took me a while to actually absorb Maria’s words of wisdom. The true trick to making this concealer look natural is barely t

ouching your finger to the top of the tube, and then layering if necessary.

Flatten your Louis Vuittons, mask your ugly blue darkness, and cover your blemishes and imperfections. You literally will look “amazing” all day long.
