I really love Bareminerals! Even though I have had a few misses too in this brand, I love how they have really good quality mineral based makeup. Though I did not have a good experience with Bareskin foundation, this version of Bareskin concealer has become my favorite lately, and I have been using it nonstop since I got it. Read on to know more about the bareMinerals Bareskin Complete Coverage Serum Concealer in the shade Medium.
About the product:
A silky-smooth, complete coverage, concealer and serum formula.
What it does:
A silky smooth, complete coverage concealer and serum in one, bareSkin® Complete Coverage Serum Concealer is designed to provide remarkable coverage with its ultra-light texture. It instantly reduces the appearance of dark circles, discoloration, and other imperfections for a beautifully even-toned complexion.
Formulated with antioxidant Lilac Plant Stem Cells, this multitasking concealer features high-definition mineral optics to counteract shadows and give skin a brightened, lustrous finish. Hydrating humectants help nourish the undereye area, while the silky smooth texture glides effortlessly over fine lines, leaving skin looking fresh and flawless all day.
My Experience with bareMinerals Bareskin Complete Coverage Serum Concealer:
This product has taken a top spot in my favorite concealers category, and is neck and neck with another favorite, Urban decay Naked Skin Concealer. Through this post, I will be highlighting a few of the subtle differences between these 2 very similar products.
Comes in a tube with a flat 2 sided applicator which is the same kind in UD one too. I really like this easy to use and travel friendly packaging.
Texture & Application:
This is a very creamy and silky concealer. It is not too thick, but it is not runny. Texture wise, it is also super similar to the UD one. It is super easy to blend with a Beauty Blender and does not go on streaky.
Coverage & Finish:
This concealer delivers medium to full coverage. I feel the coverage is just a tad bit less, and more natural looking than the UD one, but still it covers all the imperfections and hides my dark circles pretty well. It also brightens up the area while looking very natural.
The finish of this concealer is slightly satiny while UD one was completely matte. I don’t really feel the need to set this concealer, but for the sake of better longevity during the day, I still set it.
Feel on Skin:
It feels super lightweight on the skin and makes my skin feel hydrated and comfortable. It sets quickly and there is no slippery or tacky feel. It absolutely does not crease or settle into fine lines nor does it emphasize fine lines.
I got the shade ‘Medium’ which is an exact match for my MAC NW 23 skin tone, but you could go for ‘Light’ if you want that highlighted, lighter under eye look. This concealer comes in 6 shades.
Pretty much stays all day which is usually 8 hours for me without fading or creasing. Overall, I am very impressed with this product. It takes the spot of being one of my top favorite concealers. If you are someone who is looking for a good coverage concealer that feels lightweight and looks incredibly natural, this is for you. I will recommend this.
