L'Oreal Visble Lift Eye Concealer Review

My Best of Concealer round up continues today with a review of L'Oreal's Visble Lift Eye Concealer.

If it's cheap you seek L'Oreal Visible Lift Eye Concealer may be an ok Beauty on a Budget find for you at around $9 USD or so.

L'Oreal's Visible Lift Eye Concealer isn't the best of the best however it's the best of it's kind for the price. Available in a good deal of color selections you're pretty much guaranteed to run into at least one shade that should suit your skin type.

When it comes to concealers I prefer splurging rather than skimping however I realize not everyone has the same mind set as I do which accounts for me looking for a good concealer at a decent price to do a review on. I've found two concealers in the drugstore beauty world that work well, one of which is L'Oreal Visible Lift Eye Concealer.

I find the formula a teeny, tiny bit drying but aside from that overall the concealer performed excellent for a drugstore purchase.

It's pigmented enough to conceal the worst dark circles plus any fine lines or wrinkles you may sport. It also does a fine job of tucking into baggage and giving the illusion of a fresh, awake eye.

The texture is absolutely perfect and blends very well. It's not watery and has just enough density to spread evenly across the eye without making a mushy mess that some concealers have a knack for do to how watery they are.

It sports a few minor problems that I find unforgivable, sadly. One such problem is the fact that it creeps into fine lines after a few hours and gives my eyes a tired appearance it's also a tiny bit drying even though when it's first applied it feels quite moisturizing.

I did notice if I'm very careful in my prep prior to use the product won't seep into fine lines however if I apply in a rush and I haven't prepped my eye area enough for the concealer I will end up with a rather sad, crusty crease of concealer under my eyes. Yuck!

Although the color is a very unusual pale white combined with touches of both gray and beige it actually blends seamlessly under my eyes and works very well at waking my eyes up and giving me the look of 12 hours of sleep rather than the 6 I probably had!

The wear on this isn't so great and around 2 hours or less you'll end up with creasing, fading, and a general need for big time touch up so that kinda stinks. You might be able to get longer wear out of this if you choose to wear a primer under your eyes prior to use!

For the price it's actually pretty good however I've definately come across better. The price is right, the coverage is good however problems with creasing and length of wear creates a huge problem for me.

I have this one too! I got it at my local grocery store on clearance, so I only paid $2.50 for it...couldn't resist.

I think it works ok on my combo/oily skin. Not sure about the "line minimizing" though...

hiya tammy!

Awesome! Wish I scored it for cheap too ;)

If you're oily you prob didn't notice how drying it was :P

It dried my eye out badly but aside from that, if I prep well, it's pretty ok!
