Chanel Correcteur Perfection Long Lasting Concealer

chanel concealer review

Claims : Lightweight, gel-based concealer with all-day staying power offers flawless, light-to-medium coverage. Ultra-smooth, supple texture feels comfortable on skin. Soft-focus pigments brighten dark areas and minimize imperfections. Wand applicator allows for precise touch-ups.

Price : Rs 2000/- approx

How To : Apply CORRECTEUR PERFECTION with wand applicator under the eyes or to any areas of imperfection and pat gently with fingertips to blend.

Available in 6 shades

My Experience :

I was dying to try out this concealer. Since I had an awesome experience with Chanel’s Highlighting pen, I thought I’d give this a try as well. The only problem with this concealer is that at Delhi’s store only 3-4 shades (out of the 6) are available. Those 3-4 shades are on the lighter side. I picked up #20, which is slightly lighter than my regular concealer shade but it works well for highlighting the under eye area.

  • The concealer has gel- cream kind of consistency and spreads beautifully. In fact this is one of the nicest texture of concealer that I have come across.
  • I feel it works better when patted with finger tips than when swiped or buffed with an brush. It is a medium coverage concealer. I personally apply it on top of my regular concealer to highlight my under eye area. Sometimes it also works well to highlight the cheek bones.It does not accentuate the pores.
  • The concealer is quite pigmented but on spreading it, it thins out and spreads nicely without settling in the fine lines. I would like to mention that it conceals light blemishes but fails to cover up deep marks. It minimizes the appearance of the marks
  • The texture is thin and does not cake up. It spreads beautifully and looks natural… almost like your second skin.
  • The staying power is around 5 + hours on me when (set with powder) and after that it fades. Those with oily skin, it may last even less.
  • I love the wand applicator. I find this kind of packaging most convenient to use as far as concealers are concerned.
  • It is not shimmery or completely matte. It has that like silky kind of finish that makes your under eyes look rested and nice.

If I have to use between Chanel’s Highlighter pen or this concealer, I guess I would choose the highlighter pen.Only because that has a shade that matches my skin tone more closely than this one. However, if I find my perfect shade in this one I’d repurchase this. 🙂

If you are looking for a light weight everyday concealer that would just freshen up your look, this is just amazing. However if you are looking for something heavy duty for your blemishes and acne marks, this may not fit your bill.

Great review Rati! Between this and the Touche Eclat, which one is better? I usually dont use concealers but recently noticed some dark circles, so thinking of investing in a good one.

Rati April 15, 2013 at 12:58 pm

i guess pick up chanel highlighter in that case. however if you want a bit more coverage and you find a perfect shade then this one is better. 🙂

My boyfriend got this for me when he was coming back from US. I have really dry skin, this stayed long hours on me. But the coverage wasn’t great Ratidoo :\ Can you suggest something with awesome coverage for terrible dark eye circles?
I love the white background in your photos! 🙂

I think this might just work for me if I use a colour corrector first…
But until my spending ban ceases, I will just live through blogs! :p
