E.L.F Cosmetics HD Lifting Concealer


Some of you may have heard that as of recently, E.L.F Cosmetics are now being sold in Superdrug stores in the UK. 

E.L.F Cosmetics' policy on animal testing is:
E.L.F Cosmetics are completely cruelty free and vegan. They also do not sell their products in China!

I have only ever tried a few of their products before, as they were never available in anywhere else in the uk before this! I needed a new concealer so desperately as my LA Girl Pro Concealer had run out and it's difficult to get hold of, so I thought I'd grab a cheap one in the drugstore!

This one was £4.50 and it immediately caught my eye because of the packaging,which is kind of "NARS" like. 
This HD lifting concealer gives you lightweight, skin firming, all-day coverage. Easily conceal any blemish or discoloration with this easy-to-blend formula. It’s infused with vitamin C, green tea, and mulberry to help soothe, and improve skin texture.
I completely agree with everything in the statement above! This product is 100x better than I ever thought it would be.Although I don't like heavy coverage on my whole face. I like it under my eyes because of my bags, and to cover blemishes, however its difficult to find a full coverage concealer which will blend into light/medium coverage foundations. More often than not it will just sit there and not blend, and look extremely obvious, but with this you simply cannot tell. 

Another thing I love about this product is that it genuinely is "lifting" I'm not sure if its because of the colour I got it in, which is 'fair', but It really does lift my eyes and not just cover my bags, but make them appear so much less droopy and my eyes much less tired looking.

I also can confidently say that this product 100% stays on all day! I wore it on my face once, without foundation, just to sort out my bags and blemishes, and it was ridiculously hot outside and it stayed on all day, even though I got on a boiling hot train to London which had no air-con or windows which could open. So it definitely does stay on haha!

I've heard quite a lot of people say that the colours are quite off. I'm ridiculously pale so I'm normally the first person to complain about fair colours not actually being fair, however in this instant, the fair colour does work for me! It's not darker than my skin, its actually quite a few shades lighter.

In terms of application, this product comes with an applicator inside, which I use to apply the product on specific parts of my face. I then blend it in with a damp beauty blender, and it blends perfectly. It is buildable also, if you want an even heavier coverage.

Right now this has replaced my trusty Collection 2000 concealer and L.A Girl Pro conceal, and for £3 I will definitely be re-purchasing this again!
