My Concealer Power Duo

Korres Wild Rose Concealer $20, Benefit Powderflage $28

What is it?
Korres Wild Rose Concealer:
Provides coverage for slight imperfections and dark circles; also treats hyperpigmentation and the first signs of aging. Reflects light in multiple directions for a luminous effect. My color is WRC5.

Benefit Powderflage:
Light diffusing powder concealer for under eyes and face. Camouflages fine lines, dark circles or spots.

Why did I buy it?
I've started to get shadowing around my eyes and wanted to conceal them and it always helps to prevent the signs of aging.

Should you sample this?
Its important to know concealer is a process not a product. Its very rare you can acheive coverage you want with one product. I like using these together because individually they don't get the job done. The Korres concealer provides great coverage and the powderflage sets it. My eyes tend to tear up as soon as I get outside (I think I have allergies - note to self, see a doctor), this stays in place despite the side wiping and pat drying.  As far as the anti aging effects - I haven't seen any new lines or shadows, so I guess its working. The light reflecting properties of both products make me look like I had eight hours of sleep when in reality I had five.  Keep in mind, the powderflage is a pinkish poweder may look ashy on darker skin.

If you are looking for a concealer duo with light reflecting and anti aging properties, you should sample this - Tamiko
