Review of Bourjois Brush Concealer
Honest confession: Before joining IMBB I was totally unaware about the concealers. So after joining IMBB I came to know that what are concealer, how to use, where to use, when to use and which are the best concealing products. Thanks to all of you that I came to know about concealers…
What Bourjois says about Concealer:
- Wake up your eyes!
- Illuminating and smoothing formula.
- With soft focus pigments
Its airy, light and blendable texture is enhanced with silicone allowing a soft and fluid result on application.
The formula enriched with mineral pigments smoothes and diminishes imperfections while reflecting light.
The pen-style packaging with its ‘turn and click’ mechanism provides the perfect amount of product every time making application a breeze.
Price: I bought my Bourjois Brush Concealer for 650 INR
Available Shades: Only 2 shades are available
2) Beige Rose 82
Just paint onto the eye area, blemishes area and blend it in with a fingertip or with the concealer brush (I am using Sigma concealer brush).

How to apply the Bourjois Brush Concealer:
Twist the base of the concealer pen and soon the thick liquid will appear in between the bristles in the in-built brush. but wait for sometime after you twist the bottom because it does take a little while for the product to slowly come out … too much twistingand you’ll end up with product overload on the brush and most of it will end up being a waste because you won’t be able to apply the concealer properly with too much product on the brush.
WOW factors of Bourjois Brush Concealer
- The concealer blends easily on my eye area, corner of my lips and on chin area..
- It doesn’t look fake.
- It doesn’t cake too badly and doesn’t crease underneath the eye
- I don’t have very dark circles, and it works amazingly on my dark circles, it hides them very well.
- I have this in ‘Medium’ (‘Light’ is also available) and it matches my skin tone very well
- The coverage is between sheer and medium which I think is perfect for achieving a more natural look; it doesn’t completely hide very dark shadows but the coverage is enough to achieve a more ‘wide-awake’ appearance
- Good staying power (not completely waterproof though) and easily removed at the end of the day
- The texture is light and workable, the product does a good job of minimizing circles (which is what it’s meant for)
- Packaging is great for touch up when u need to cover up some areas again.
- Quality of the product is very good, glides on smoothly
- Its light weight and it’s easy to apply as it disappears when I tap it lightly with my finger.
- It may not totally cover very very dark circles however; it may reduce the appearance of being a panda.
- I normally use it on the top lid and the bottom of the lower lid and eye area to brighten up the eyes. … you can also use it to cover up blemishes and skin discoloration as this concealer masks them beautifully!!!
- If you rub it in, you’ll barely notice any difference – the key is to lightly tap onto the skin until you’ve reached the required coverage.
- Feels light enough to wear around the eyes, without feeling dry.
- The packaging is very compact to carry it with you anywhere easily.
What I don’t like about the Bourjois Brush Concealer:
- You twist the bottom of the pen and concealer comes out to the brush, but the brush is quite firm so I use my fingers or brush instead.
- Sometimes I end up twisting the pen too much and excess concealer comes out which is a slight waste.
- Doesn’t give illuminating effect at all.
- Very limited range of shades.. Only 2 shades
- If you have very very dark circles I am not sure whether you will find it suitable it or not as it provides light to medium coverage.
- Scent of the concealer is weird.
All and all its good product and suits me well. If you have very very dark circles then I will definitely not recommend this…
