Enough is never enough with concealers; even though I think I have found the one, namely the Mac Pro Longwear concealer, there’s always room for one more in my heart. I think deep down, I feel as though I may miss out on the next best thing if I don’t try out new products – such a beauty addict thing to say!
This is the Sarah McNamara Miracle Skin Transformer Treat & Conceal Eye & Face concealer, which claims to cover pigmentation spots and redness, conceal dark circles and minimise the appearance of fine lines and signs of ageing. This multifunctional concealer can be used both under the eyes and on the face, and it claims to give flawless complexion; it contains marine collagen, white rose, and chamomile extracts.
It comes in 4 shades – light, medium, tan and dark – which seems reasonable enough to cover a wide range of skin tones. I have the shade medium, which is a beige/nude shade with yellow undertones; it is perfect for my under eye area, but I feel I would have to go one shade darker if I were to use this to cover larger areas of my face.
This concealer has a cream-to-powder consistency, which pretty much dissolves at the touch of your fingers; a little goes a VERY long way with this concealer, I only apply the smallest amount to cover my under eye area. I have a feeling that if you have combination or oily skin, you will love this concealer, as it’s not greasy whatsoever; having dry skin myself, I have to make sure my skin is in really good condition for this concealer not to stick to any dry patches, but if my skin is nice and moisturised this concealer lasts all day without creasing or settling into my fine lines.
It has an impressive medium coverage with an airbrushed finish whilst being relatively light on the skin; it doesn’t look cakey, but it can be a little bit tricky to blend because of the cream-to-powder formula. Overall, I can see myself purchasing a darker shade to use as an all over the face shade on days when I can’t be bothered to apply foundation. I can’t believe this is relatively unspoken about in the blogging world, because I truly believe it’s an outstanding concealer that deserves a lot more praise.
Now for the sad part: the price tag! The Miracle Skin Transformer Concealer costs £28 for a 15ml tube; it is a small fortune to pay for a concealer, but in my opinion it’s worth the money! I believe this is an American brand, so it’s not widely available in the UK yet, but you can find it on the Selfridges or the QVC websites; and whilst you’re there read the customer reviews, which will corroborate what I’ve just said on my review!
