Every time I want to review Essence Cosmetics Say no to Dark Circles, and Say no to Imperfections retractable concealers, I always end up getting side tracked by some other makeup product that excites me to the core like, lipstick, highlighters, mascara, and more lipstick (lol), making me cast aside the idea of writing a review for these two makeup must haves, but not this time glamour babes!
Today, it’s all about brightening up those peepers, while saying peace out bean sprout to some undesirable attributes us goils like to call imperfections.
Essence Say no to Dark Circles and Say no to Imperfections are worth keeping in the makeup bag, car, or office drawer at all times, they seriously do the trick for quick touch ups on the go.
As you can see in my photo, I tote these portable babies around a lot in my makeup bag, just look at the the wear and tear of them. Yea, you could say they get a good beating as I dress my face, lol.
They are so easy to use and blend into the skin beautifully, creating no streaks! God, I love concealers that can do this, why can’t all of them be formulated this way? There is a third called Say no to Redness, which is a green concealer that cancels out redness, obviously, uh-duh!
I told you I gave these concealer crayons a good beating, take a look at that nub, shouldn’t it look slender and perfectly pointy much like a crayon?! Well, they did when I first bought them, gotta test the merchandise though to let you know if this stuff works or not, ya know what I’m sayin? Lol.
Could I agree with the description above? Yes and no, for a concealer that is labeled a natural beige shade, I felt it applied a bit too yellow on my fair skin when worn alone. I found that wearing a foundation, BB Cream, or CC Cream cancels out that yellowy undertone and brings out the natural beige perfectly, erasing imperfections and redness quickly and effectively. If I choose to wear a color correcting concealer alone, I find that Urban Decay’s Naked Skin Color Correcting Fluid in Peach ($28) or Sephora’s Bright Future Collection in the peach ($14) shade covers really nicely. And, here’s your dupe of the day! Baaaaa-Zing!
Say no to Dark Circles is a color correcting bright rose shade that hides dark circles immediately!
I was using the Physicians Formula Touch of Glow Nude Wear Pen (pretty slender girly one with the pink bow cap) for my dark circles, but I decided to try something different and opted for Essence Cosmetics $2.99 version, and it works heavenly. I do have pretty dark circles, and this bright rosy shade seriously conceals them almost instantly. The silky soft formula (say no to imperfections has the same formula) glides under the eyes smoothly and blends in evenly, giving those raccoon eyes of mine a much softer, brighter outlook on concealer crayons (wink).
Both concealers are lightweight, provide medium coverage, giving skins texture a satiny powdery feel. They do not clog pores, and work best on fair to medium skin tones with normal to combination oily skin. Essences Say no to Imperfections, and Say no to Dark Circles is available at Ulta Beauty, and select Target stores.
