Review: Avon Ideal Flawless Cream Concealer (Fair)11:34
If you don't know that, Avon has certain side offers, which you as a member can get in. They often offer you products half price, which will be available in the next catalog. Of course, I love buying those products, because the price is much lower and if something interests me, I go for it and don't feel as guilty. This was the case, with their new Ideal Flawless Cream Concealer.
It comes in this little practical black shiny plastic pot, which is really nice for carrying around. The closing works good, so you won't need to worry about it opening up in your bag. It costs 5.90€ and you get 1.4 ml of product.
The shade, I chose is called Fair and let me tell you, it's actually fair. What?! I know?!
The texture of this concealer is really creamy. It literally feels like it's melting under your fingers. It also has a very good pigmentation. Once it touches the skin it tends to go matte almost into a powder finish. The real beauty of this one, and why I think you should get it, is the fact that it's creamy and non drying, which means you can use it under your eyes. It's also pigmented enough so that it will cover any blemishes, pimples and under eye darkness, if you layer it. The combination of creaminess, which makes application under the eyes a dream and doesn't go into fine lines and the pigmentation of it, is what sold me.
If you're not convinced yet, let me tell you that this is the fairest concealer in my collection. Did I spark your interest yet, fair ladies? I know, I have a difficult time finding concealer that would be light or god forbid light-er than my foundation and this one is. You can see on the photo below that it's almost lighter than my skin tone. I find the shade to be pretty neutral, no yellow or pink undertone, just a really nice neutral shade. If I would need to choose, I would say it's more warm than cool toned, but still pretty neutral.
I also wanted to showcase what it looks like and how it works on my skin. I used it over the red patch and hide a blemish with it.
I mostly love to use it under my eyes. It's so light that it highlights my under eyes and makes me look a lot fresher and woken up.
I will also say that I find the long lastingness pretty decent. It stays put for a really long time. Of course it starts to fade away a little, but that is after several hours and the fact that my skin gets oily, doesn't necessary help. You can also build up the intensity or make it look really sheer, with how much you apply.
Here you can see how it looks like compared to my other concealers. Catrice Velvet Finish in 030 Velvet Beige is pretty light, but it oxidizes to an orange color. Revlon Colorstay in 02 Light is the warmest yellow shade of them all. It's also darker than most of them. MAC Pro Longwear in NC15 is actually similar shade to Avon's, but when it oxidizes it's a bit darker then Avon's. Now Avon Ideal Flawless in Fair is the lightest shade of all of these and it's still the lightest when it oxidizes on the skin. It's warm toned, but still looks pretty neutral.
Creamy concealer, that doesn't dry out the skin, it has a good coverage, is pretty long lasting and fairer than most of drug store concealers. For me is going to be a must have from now on. If you're looking for a new concealer and like what this one promises, try it and let me know how you like it.
