Hi everyone, I’d like to introduce you to my current undereye concealer- the Cover FX Camouflage Concealer! I’m was in search of a concealer that can effectively cover up my pesky dark undereye circles, and after watching a particular blogger on youtube describe this product as being very heavy duty, as well as reading reviews and looking for swatches online, I asked my aunt who lives in the USA and who just happened to be going home in a few weeks time if she could please, please go to the nearby Sephora store and get this for me.

Can you see from the swatch that it has an orangey hue? Orange-hued concealers are supposed to be great for dark undereye circles since they warm up dark areas. They should work nicely for hiding hyperpigmentation, age spots, or freckles as well. The swatch may seems bright, but the product blends well onto my skin and doesn’t leave it bright orange.
The Cover FX Camouflage Concealer is a liquid concealer, and has a rather oily consistency, which at first I found strange. Sometimes when the product came out it seems like the pigment had separated from the oil, but I got used to this quickly, and after a number of uses, I began to like it. The texture works
really well for my dry undereyes. It has a sort of chemical scent, but it’s quite mild to my nose and doesn’t bother me at all.
The shade I have is medium, which seems just about right. This product is available in six shades, ranging from extra-light to extra-deep.
After concealer- applied all over undereyes and eyelid.
What I Like About Cover FX Camouflage Concealer
• Very easy to blend onto my skin. The texture is a tad oily but is super easy to work with, and doesn’t cause me to pull on the dry skin on my undereyes.
I also love that it didn’t settle into fine lines or become cakey.
• I wouldn’t say that it covers up my dark circles 100%, but it quite noticeably evens out my skin tone and brightens up my undereyes. I prefer using this with a colour corrector, but on its own it works pretty well too. Doesn’t leave a greyish cast.
• Also helps even out hyperpigmentation on the area around the corners of my mouth.
• Stays on for hours even in humid weather. After setting it with powder, it totally stays put and doesn’t seem to fade even after a number of hours.
What I Don’t Like About Cover FX Camouflage Concealer
• Expensive at $27 for a small (15ml/0.5 fl oz) tube.
• Not available in most places aside from the USA and Canada.
Overall, I really like this product and bring it with me wherever I go. I would buy it again, though I can’t be entirely loyal to it and would still try out other concealers. I’ve also learned from this product that liquid concealers are best for my dry undereyes since they are much easier to blend and less likely to cake compared to cream form. To those who have heavy dark undereye circles, I suggest giving this a try. Apply eye cream beforehand, use a sheer layer of peach colour corrector, then pat on this concealer, set with powder, and things should look much better! As I mentioned, this is has an oily texture, so those who dislike concealers with an oily feel should steer clear of this, and those with oily skin should take care to set it with powder to avoid fading or caking.
