The Body Shop Concealer Pencil Shade 04
545/- INR for 3.9 gm. Surprisingly, they have not increased the price till date.
May be around 3 years. Don’t have the plastic cover with me now.
What the Product Claims:
Our creamy concealer cares for your skin even as it hides its imperfections. With community Trade marula oil. It effectively covers blemishes and blends easily to conceal redness. Available in a variety of shades.
This is the picture from their site, which shows all the 4 shades, apparently named as 01,02,03 and 04 .
I am going to review the shade 04.
Dab onto specific areas and blend using our Lipstick/Concealer Brush.
Marula Oil – Is a very effective moisturiser that also helps to condition the skin over time. Also provides essential fatty acids that help to repair the skin’s moisture barrier, thus helping to restore moisture, smoothness and suppleness.
Beeswax – Moisturises and helps to condition the skin. Acts as a barrier that helps to seal in moisture. Helps to keep product texture consistent, when used over time.
Vitamin E – Is an antioxidant that helps to soften , condition and protect the skin.
My Experience with The Body Shop Concealer Pencil
This is one of the disastrous experiences with TBS stuff that I am going to share. This season when I was checking out the products on sale, I saw the concealer pencils for around Rs. 300/350 and I was so irritated. I paid 600 bucks for this dud 2 years back and now they are selling the same, that too old stock for almost half the price. Not that I am against this, but they should at least check the manufacturing date before putting it on sale. Don’t know what has gotten into TBS these days.
Placed next to NYX eyeliner pencil for your reference.
Coming back to the product itself. It is a wooden pencil, but so very fat that sharpening it is really difficult. I was intending to check and get the specific sharpener from TBS itself, but I was already so disappointed with this after 2 to 3 applications, so I just let it go and since then its lying unused and blunt in my cupboard.
Here is the swatch. It is creamy and glides on smoothly on the hands, but while blending, it becomes sticky and a bit oily.
Blended with a single strong swipe of the hand.
Blended completely, it looks nice on hand, but somehow on my eyes, it looks very ashy. You can see a very obvious white cast when it is used on the eye area. The eye area being sensitive, it’s really difficult to blend even. It creases near the lower lash area and refuses to blend into the skin.
It’s not even good at hiding brown or black spots. It does lighten them a little bit, but if you see from a distance you can make out the white patch on the area of application. I’ve tried so many times, but never got that perfect finish with this. If you are thinking that maybe I am not able to blend it properly, then I am telling you I have tried to make it work so many times that I refuse to believe so. Back then, I was a novice and picked this up when the SA convinced me it is good.
For me, it’s a complete dud. So, I am not going to waste my and your own time in listing the pros and cons as I can’t think of a single good, nice thing about this. I reviewed this only and only because I want all of you to stay away from this even if you find it in sale, don’t fall into the trap.
