Hey guys! So today I will be sharing with you my review on the Make Up For Ever Full Coverage Concealer! I picked this up a couple of weeks back during the Sephora VIB sale and I have not stopped putting this bad boy down since I grabbed it! I am in the shade 5, Vanilla (although I could probably pick up 6, Ivory and get away with it as well). I've been wanting this product for awhile now, but I never got around to biting the bullet to get it. However, I finally did this during this recent VIB sale and now I cannot get over how wonderful of a product it is! Where has it been all my life?!
Packaging: This simple, squeeze tube packaging is my ideal for concealer packaging. First of all, its hygienic and you don't really have to worry about contaminating your concealer! Secondly, you actually finish the product (if you ever get there that is!) The amount of product in here is kinda crazy, I'm not sure how on earth I will finish up all this product! Make Up For Ever tends to have simpler packaging, but I don't mind that at all because this is so easy to use (plus this is travel friendly!)

Coverage: This is a full coverage concealer. I can depend on this concealer to cover my the majority of my under eye bags and my hyper pigmentation. If you have really dark circles, you may have to use a corrector help conceal it more. This concealer does not feel heavy on my skin, it has a creamy consistency that is hydrating enough to use in my under eye area, but yet it isn't too hydrating where it can't be used on acne scars. Unfortunately, this concealer isn't the perfect match for my skintone right now, it is a tad bit too light but I can blend out this concealer and make this work. I primarily use this concealer in my under eye area since I can use it to conceal and highlight. A little bit of this concealer goes a long way. For a demo of me applying this concealer, check out my Updated Winter Foundation Routine!
Lasting Power: I find that this concealer lasts a good 10+ hours. Provided that I blot away any excessive concealer with the Real Techniques Contour Brush, I find that this concealer does not crease in my undereye area. The Make Up For Ever concealer is the first concealer I own to not crease in my undereye area (Mac Pro Longwear and Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer will crease after a couple of hours, if not earlier). This concealer set within a couple of minutes, which helps speed up my application of my makeup.
Final Thoughts: I have been absolutely enjoying this concealer! It is long lasting, pigmented, and is well worth the money! I might end up picking up the shade in 6 Ivory when I get a chance later (when I get a chance to finish up a couple other concealers I own of course!). The biggest con I see from this product is that the cost is quite hefty. Not everyone can shell out $32 for a concealer and I completely understand that! If you were wanting to try this concealer out, definitely get a sample at Sephora to test out, and wait til the 20% off at Sephora to buy it! I haven't found a drugstore concealer that quite compares to this product (although I have heard that the LA Girl Concealer is something I should definitely be trying)! While this concealer is expensive, I can see this concealer lasting for a really long time... I'm thinking this concealer could easily last me two years, if not more! I definitely recommend this concealer out to anyone who is looking for a high quality concealer that will cover up dark circles and hyper pigmentation!
