After remaining loyal to Estée Lauder's Double-Wear Concealer for over a year, I began to question why after noticing it would crack and age my skin pretty badly after just a few hours. The Instant Concealer by Clarins is marketed as a 'fatigue-fighting, smoothing and long-wearing concealer'. With this in mind, I put my hope in Clarins' concealer as I have always loved makeup that enhances natural features as opposed to completely covering them. The product's claim of 'masking the colour of dark circles while restoring the skin's natural tone' is 100% truthful. Seriously. No matter how little sleep I've managed to get or how busy I've been, the concealer manages to make me appear bright-eyed.
Needless to say, concealer isn't just for dark circles. During hormonal breakouts where I've had a few spots appear on my chin, the Instant Concealer covered them up so well. Speaking as someone who used to suffer from acne, if you're really uncomfortable with your skin, take a trip to your doctor to see what tablets/gels are available right now. But if it's just a case of the occasional, annoying bump here and there, this concealer is ideal. Personally, I love how versatile the concealer is for working with various areas of the face, and how it helps to achieve a quick 'polished' look when in a hurry. Take it from me, you've got to try Clarins Instant Concealer!
One more thing before I go and finish off my birthday cake.. if you're super pale and struggling to find a concealer that doesn't draw attention to where you've used it, this is a total godsend - I use shade 01.
