I have been a big fan of concealers lately, mainly because I have been preferring lighter coverage foundations, and of course concealers come in handy when needing to cover up flaws. The concealer that I have been really loving lately is the OCC Skin: Conceal in the shade Y1.
I have heard a lot of positive reviews about this concealer, and as soon as I found out that Lipstick Republic started stocking it, I had to order it! This retails for $20, which is the same amount as what it retails for in the US! In addition to this, you can use the discount code RepublicVIBs for a further 10% off your order at Lipstick Republic.
The worst part about buying this was trying to pick the correct shade. There are 6 yellow based shades and 6 red based shades, and it is difficult choosing the appropriate shade online. I mainly looked at the Temptalia swatches for a rough guidance. In addition to this, the shade range varies immensely, there are super light shades and super dark shades and everything in between. Because of the wide variety of shades, it is likely that one shade won't suit you and you will need to mix two to get your perfect match. This wide range works well for people who have really light or really dark skin and can't usually find a concealer that suits them. Luckily Y1 works well for my under eye area, but I will need to invest in a Y2 to mix with Y1 for Summer and for covering blemishes.
This concealer contains a lot of product, it contains 8 grams of product and is also vegan and cruelty free.
The packaging is a clear plastic tub. I like the design, it looks really minimalistic, and you can see the product which will be handy if you have a couple of these concealers. I use my finger to apply this, but if people find this unhygienic then they can dip their brush directly into the product.
This is a firm pot set concealer that is creamy enough to blend easily, but also firm enough to stay put and not slide around on the skin. This is really thin, but so opaque that you only need a small amount of product. I love this product, and the only thing I can complain about is that the shade range is so wide that it might take a mixture of two shades to find your perfect match. Y1 works well for under my eyes, but I may need to buy Y2 to mix with Y1 to cover blemishes.
