I featured the Essence Camouflage Full Coverage Concealer within my most recent Essence Makeup Haul back in June, and I’ve been obsessed ever since. I don’t use the word “obsessed” very often as it’s a ridiculously overused word within the beauty community. In fact I’ve only used the word three times this year so far out of over 150 blog posts so it’s got to be a bloody good product to make me obsessed.
The Essence Camouflage Full Coverage Concealer £2.50 launched early this year and I’ve not seen it mentioned anywhere on UK blogs but I decided to purchase it as the “05 Ivory” shade looked genuinely pale from the photo’s I’d seen online. Until now, the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer has been my favourite drugstore concealer for at least ten years now but I can officially confirm that it’s been knocked off the top spot by the Essence Camouflage Full Coverage Concealer….
The Essence Camouflage Full Coverage Concealer is described as being long-lasting and highly pigmented with a liquid-creamy texture that reliably covers-up dark circles under the eyes and other skin irregularities. for a natural, wide-awake look. The concealer has a typical doe foot applicator and is easy to apply to the skin, and I can use it under my eyes and on blemishes which is usually unheard of as concealers tend to be one or the other but the formula is creamy and hydrating enough to be used on the under-eye area yet it offers great coverage.
I wouldn’t describe the concealer as being super full coverage like a “camouflage” type concealer, instead it offers more of a medium coverage but it’s buildable. The best thing about the Essence Camouflage Full Coverage Concealer for me personally is how incredibly lightweight it is on the skin as it meshes with the skin so you can’t see it sitting on the surface like you can with the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer.
It’s forgiving on drier areas but offers longlasting wear so it really does tick all of the boxes, and the “o5 Ivory” shade is amazingly pale so I’m praying Essence introduce this very shade into their other base products as it’s such a fantastic shade match and for £2.50, you simply *have* to try it….
Have you ever tried any of the Essence concealers?
