Where to find: drug stores, some department stores
Price: about $30
I was at Shoppers Drug Mart the other week, and on a whim, I decided to buy Vichy Dermablend Concealer. (I’m usually a lot better disciplined and wait until days where SDM offers bonus points for their Optimum cardholders).
The $28 pricepoint did put a dent in the pocket, but I’m happy to say that my was it worth it! Vichy Concealer promises 16 hour coverage and it delivers. I’ve used it on my break-outs and usually depending on the stage of the break-out, especially during the early stages when the trouble area is a bit more oily, any type of concealer tends to slide off. I’ve tried Boing by Benefit, MAC Studiofix, Make-up Forever’s Cream Palette
You just need a tiny amount for blemishes – literally a small dot-size. I squeeze this tiny amount onto the back of my left hand and then I use either a q-tip or a concealer brush to apply to the problem break-out area. The, I use a light dab of loose powder to lock the concealer in place.
For using this under the eyes, I recommend mixing it with a tiny bit of lotion to loosen up the thick consistency. Otherwise, the formula looks too thick and cakey for the delicate under eye area.
