How have you all been doing? What are the resolutions for the New year? I do not make any because I know I am not going to follow them, so come as they may. Wishing you all a very happy new year from my side. Hope the coming years are even more amazing and better than the past years. Coming to today’s product it is a concealer palette from ELF. This would be a great pick for any of you and this has 4 different shades and obviously there is certain discoloration that happens as the seasons change, so this might be of great use without putting on more money in the concealers when your skin colour tends to change. Let’s see how this one worked for me.
Savvy beauty shoppers rejoice—now there is no need to buy new concealer from season to season for meeting the different needs your skin tone may have. e.l.f. introduces a sleek quad compact filled with four brilliant, customizable concealers ranging from light, medium and dark shades. A must have for anyone’s makeup kit these highly pigmented, professionally formulated concealers offer ultimate coverage to disguise a range of boo-boos and flaws including blemishes, dark circles, redness and uneven skin-tone for a flawless, makeup artist finish!
How to use:
Prior to foundation apply the Concealer with fingertips or a brush to preferred location. With a sponge pat the e.l.f. Pressed Powder over the e.l.f. Complete Cover- age Concealer to set in. If desired use the e.l.f. Makeup Mist & Set to seal your makeup for extended long wear.
How I liked the ELF complete coverage concealer:
It was great of me to get this one because this palette has 4 good shades and this palette is available in 3 variants: light, medium and dark. I picked the light one because the medium one would look to patchy on my skin and a dark patch would be visible over my cheeks making people notice that I have applied a concealer. This Palette comes in a black plastic covering which you can open up like a compact. The packaging is simple and the shades are visible from the palette through a see-through glass on the palette. There is a small mirror inside as well so we can use it while touching up the face with the concealer. The palette is super handy to carry and has a small brush inside as well but I think it is pretty small but my fingers work better than that brush for blending and dabbing purpose. The palette has 2 yellow toned concealers and 2 concealers that would be suitable for skin with pink undertones. The first and the third shade come for the skin with pink undertone and second and the fourth one for skin with yellow undertones. I am currently using the third shade because it matched my skin perfectly. The texture is pretty creamy and soft and blends on well but it may try out after some time so the blending has to be done quickly.
For the under eye area it does not make a great difference because it hardly provides a coverage for the dark circles and it looks pretty white under the eyes making me look like a vampire but the great part is that it works great on blemishes and redness as they claim. It covers out them perfectly and does not make my blemishes visible at all. I normally dab the concealer and cover it up with a loose powder for it to stay in place and set it with a make-up setting spray for longer results. You can see in the picture how effectively it did the work. It lasts for about 3 hours and then it starts to fade and then the blemishes start to re-appear but I think for that price 3 hours is more than enough. It is a very good palette when you know your skin tone will change with seasons and I have used great concealers but this is not that bad too.

Will I repurchase/recommend ELF complete coverage concealer?
Yes, I will totally recommend this as it comes in 3 shades and every palette has 4 shades and plus at that price they do an amazing job of concealing the imperfections. I have not thought of getting it again since this will take a lot of time to get over and I like trying new things.
