AMW Review: Smashbox Camera Ready Full Coverage Concealer

Finding the right concealer is always a challenge for me, same with finding the right mascara. I've always been wanting to conceal my undereye circles as I've been a nerd all my school years so now, I'm paying the price.

As seen from my Sunday haul. I've bought Smashbox Camera Ready Full Coverage Concealer and as promised, I'll do a review on this based on my own experience.

Here's what Smashbox says ---

Dark circles and blotchy spots are a thing of the past with our fabulous new concealer that contains a soft focus powder to brighten skin and help minimize imperfections. The innovative formula contains Vitamin C to fight free radicals which age the skin. Provides natural yet buildable coverage on any area of the face.

Here's me trying out the concealer --

Pardon my eyes, I just came back from work with a remnants of e/s 12hrs ago, I cleaned the undereye area and here's how my bags and undereye circles look like


I applied this Camera Ready Full Coverage Concealer no. 3 (a.k.a. Medium Vanilla) directly to my skin under the eyes





I used a concealer brush to blend GENTLY making sure not to pull my skin


Then, I pat the area with a powder to set



Finished look!



Here's how it looks like for easier comparison



My Verdict?
Pros --
  • it did lighten up my dark circles (of course the puff is still there, that's a job of a cucumber and sleeping early! hehehe)
  • it is indeed easy to blend and I left it that way for more than 30 minutes and I didn't have any allergic reaction (FYI, I had a very bad eye allergy last year and my eyes got SWOLLEN not from cosmetics but from an eye drop)
Cons --
For now, I found none, I'll give it a more detailed investigation (ahem, CSI) hahaha and if I have any changes or any updates, I'll let you guys know

Will I purchase again?

maybe, give me some try to use it more :D

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!

  2. Hi sis, well, the color I got is really for my undereye circles. I did have a small zit this morning, I tried the smashbox concealer, so far, it does it's job in covering the redness.

    It costs around 1,400php sa beauty bar (approx value)

  4. hi pinay! you should read the reviews on makeupalley.com about makeupforever full cover concealer. it's $30 but totally worth it. all you need is just a tiiiiny little bit and it covers so much better than the smashbox camera ready that i used to use. =)
