This Concealer Makes It Look Like I Never Had Dark Spots, and It's Only $5
E.l.f. Cosmetics 16 Hour Camo Concealer ($5) is at the center of a lot of hype. A quick Google search of the concealer will yield reviews that say the 18-shade concealer range, which goes for $5 per tube, has comparable results to its more expensive competitors. This is why I chose to put it up against my dark spots, splotchy red areas, and difficult-to-shade-match complexion. A crisp Lincoln can't be the answer to all of those challenges, right?
I pulled the jumbo wand from its tube and tapped it across those areas in hopes that my skin could look more even in tone. I moved quickly to buff it out and let the matte formula set. It left me with a completely even, matte complexion that felt as though I had no makeup on. Full disclosure: for my entire face, I had to mix three different shades, tan sand and deep olive (neutral shades that are close to my complexion and offset my already warm undertones) and tan sand (the lightest of the three shades to brighten up darker areas). However, $15 is still a steal, considering my go-to product is about $25.
See the magical concealer ahead.
