Sometimes, I'm just a sucker with good intentions looking for a product that delivers in a world full of too good to be true. It's truly my inclination to want to like things. I swear. In fact, I was totally going to buy the new Revlon Nearly Naked Powder, when I saw this Physicians Formula duster in Rite Aid (another place I haunt, much like Sephora), and it had the concealer above. I was intrigued by the pen style packaging, taken with the holographic details, and sold with the $3 off coupon taped so conveniently to the box (no rebate needed for this one!). But alas, it was not to be.
|For the record, this is with the light-medium concealer on.|
I guess, it's sort of unfair to judge a concealer like this, when my dark circle's are truly beasts of savage reknown, but I mean pictures don't lie. For my under-eye area, it just doesn't work. Which is a shame, because that is the entire reason I purchased the Super BB Concealer. It's also sort of flagrantly ignores the claims of the packaging, which says that it conceals Dark Circles and Puffiness.
However, I think this product does have it's merits, and I think it could work as a concealer/ under eye brightener for those whose dark circles are less tragic than my own. The actual concealer delivery system is a brush tipped pen, that is great for getting into the inner corner and under eye areas. Additionally, the texture of the product is like a thickened MAC Face & Body foundation, so it does have some coverage. Overall, I think the pigmentation could be better, but the color match for the light/medium pen was really good. It's just not enough to be a true concealer. On the face it's ok for covering small blemishes, but it wears off rather quickly. It has all the makings of greatness, I guess it just needs to mature a bit, or maybe to truly make it work I need to use it with the other two products in the range. But that seems sort of a pain in the ass, because I already have products I like much better - I'm just lacking a concealer.
This is available wherever Physician's Formula is sold. At Rite Aid the boxes have a $3 manufacturer's coupon taped to the box, which is redeemable at the register. Rite Aid is also offering a $5 Plus Up reward on your wellness card with any cumulative purchase(s) of Physicians Formula totaling $15.
