Afternoon darlings, hope you’re all good, if not, I hope whatever you are going through gets better, and I’m here if you need to talk… anyways, I bought these concealers last month after watching a whole bunch of Youtube videos saying how great it is, especially in comparison to Tarte’s “Shape Tape” concealer.
This is what MUR said about these concealers: “The concealer for everyone. 18 shades ranging from fair to deep, in cool, neutral and warm undertones. Lightweight yet full coverage concealer to cover blemishes, even skin tone and counteract dark circles, with a matte finish that won’t setting or accentuate fine lines and pores.”
I was already impressed by how many shades this concealer came in, it’s refreshing to see a brand that instantly makes itself accessible to a vast majority of skin shades and undertones off the bat and not wait to gauge popularity before expansion. I purchased my shades online because my local Superdrug stores don’t have enough shelf space to stock all 18 shades, which is completely fair enough so there’s absolutely no issue there… but yes, I bought shades C12 and C13 and I’m actually going to buy a darker shade to use as a contour because I love these concealers…. I think I’m talking too much… onto the pics
And here are my struggle swatches
Packaging: I think the packaging is adorable and it’s cute and lightweight; not much more to be said on that.
Formula: I don’t like feeling like I’m wearing makeup, which is a big reason why I don’t wear foundation, that and laziness, let’s say it’s 60/40. Ok that’s a lie, 20/80 but whatever. I don’t like heavy formulas and this isn’t. Really light, smooth, with a nice matte finish which I didn’t get with my old Benefit concealer which was super shiny. It blends well and doesn’t go into the creases too much either which is great
Price: Well it’s £4 ($6 I think) which is AHHMAAAZZZING!! I’m the cheapest person I know so this price point brought me so much joy…it’s so worth it also
Wearability: It’s long lasting, I’ve worn this on nights out and it hasn’t really budged, need to go over it and re-blend when it goes into the creases after some intense dancing/sweating but apart from that, it fits the bill.
So yeh, essay over, in conclusion this is a great product, not just for the price but overall..hope to see more amazing products like this from MUR, going to check out their highlighters next 🙂
Here’s a before, during, and after of a makeup look I tried out using this concealer both under my eyes, and as a lip colour.
Btw, just took my hoodie off in the last pics, it’s the same day, I just took so long faffing around that it got dark, hence the rubbish lighting.
Anyone else bought these concealers?? Did you like them?
