My last OCC purchase led me on another trail of thinking I know better. Concealer is probably one of the trickiest things you can “eyeball” when buying makeup online. I think I may be the only asshole who does this but I can’t help it. My latest impulse blind buy is the OCC Skin: Conceal in Y3. The product itself is really good, I think I just missed the mark on the shade selection.
The product comes in a plastic screw-top pot that is pretty much identical to their packaging for the Loose Colour Concentrates and the Crème Colour Concentrates. It’s the same as the containers I use to depot certain makeup bits. I don’t really like this—I prefer glass jars—but these are functional enough.
Y3 is meant for medium skintones with dark-yellow undertones. I shoulda known, to be honest. Look at how off the mark I was. The texture is really awesome, though, and it blends really well into the skin. It doesn’t settle into creases or crepe up and cake.
Still, I tried it on my face—on a blemish and on my bags. It didn’t fare well with the blemish, but I think it is actually decent under my bags:
Too-light concealers actually tend to emphasize and accentuate my bags, and this seems to do the trick of concealing the dark circles without drawing attention to my eye luggage. I think I actually prefer this to too-light concealers which tend to make my under-eye area look ashy. I’ve found that topping this off with the Le Métier de Beauté Eye Brightening and Setting Powder in Refresh lightens the dark under eye action a bit, somewhat.
As a product, I definitely recommend this. I wish I had gotten the correct color, though.
