It’s a classy matte black tube that has a “window” to allow the concealer to peek through. This window helps in identifying the colour of the concealer and also let you know how much product is left. The squeeze mechanism helps in controlling the amount of product dispensed and prevents wastage.
My take on ELF Maximum Coverage Concealer- Nude:
This concealer is from the Studio line of e.l.f., the highest priced range by the brand. The packaging just took my breath away. It was classy, functional and cute all at the same time!It also holds a huge amount of product. In a market where the average quantity of product offered, ranges from 8-12 ml, this concealer packs a mighty punch. The concealer is very creamy and emollient during application but dries matte. A little translucent powder helps in setting the concealer, but one can survive even without this. It is pretty pigmented, almost medium converge which can be built up without it feeling cakey or overdone.
The shade I chose is about 2-3 shades too light for me, but it makes a very natural highlighter, base for lipsticks and blemish concealer. Used as an undereye concealer, it makes me look like a very unhealthy panda, which is because of the wrong shade chosen. But nonetheless, I roamed around like panda to check its longevity. It lasts for about 4 hours perfects and then proceeds crease pretty badly.
But at this price point, I think it’s pretty amazing both quantity and quality wise.
Pros of ELF Maximum Coverage Concealer- Nude:
1.Classy travel safe packaging.
2. Huge amount of product offered for the small price asked.
3. ELF doesn’t test its products on animals.
5. Easy to apply due to it’s amazing texture.
6. Good pigmentation
Cons of ELF Maximum Coverage Concealer- Nude:
1.Precence of many chemicals
2. Not a very wide spectrum of shades
3. Creases in 3-4 hours.
Certainly! But about 1-2 shades darker.
