Chanel Long Lasting Concealer
This review has been a long time coming. I have been using this sporadically since February, and I think I have fallen in love which is rare since I am super picky about concealers. I was matched to clair which is the lightest color. Bad news for super pale peeps because I'm the equivalent of about NC20 in Mac.
This has a wand applicator with a sponge tip. I know this is a no no but I just apply it straight to the skin with the wand. I find it covers quite well for both blemishes and under eye circles.
I think this may be the first concealer I repurchase after it runs out. Yep, I like it that much. I think it really lives up to its claims too. It really lasts even through the mildly humid summer we are having here.
If Chanel is in your budget, I would definitely recommend you try this. However, be wary of the limited color range. There are only 4 shades to choose from.
I purchased mine from Nordstrom and was color matched by John Fussell, a national makeup artist for Chanel. He gave me the most lovely smokey eye and a nice nude lip. I don't have any good pictures of the makeup.
