Dior Diorskin Face Pro-Styler Concealer Palette Review

My review of concealers continues, today with a rather posh concealer palette!

If you're looking for a corrector palette that's both inexpensive and versatile might I recommend the Diorskin Face Pro-Styler Palette? At $39 USD this is a great deal and offers a number of options for concealing skin woes.

This is brand new and exclusive to Sephora at the moment but who knows it might pop up at a Dior counter near you soon. The palette contains four different concealers and a translucent setting powder in one slick compact. Remind you of anything?

Yes, it probably does remind you of Bobbi Brown's Face Touch-Up Palette. The similarities between the two are uncanny however the price and the amount of product is vastly different. Although I've grown to love Bobbi's concealer palette I must admit that the retail price of $58 USD is pretty expensive plus the compact is small. However, Dior Face Pro-Styler is considerably larger in size and about $20 USD less plus it offers the very same options that the Bobbi version does with an extra color! Bobbi's version contains three shades of concealer where as the Dior version contains four.

The concealers range in color from a pink ivory shade, up to a deeper brown beige. Each shade is suitable to mix and match together to cover dark circles, skin imperfections, and blemishes. Although the darkest shade in the palette appears too dark for my skin tone I'm able to quickly redeem the color by adding a touch of the lighter shades and it instantly becomes the perfect color.

Colors included are as follows:

  • Pinkish Ivory-Good for brightening dark circles
  • Yellow-Perfect shade to conceal dark circles. Apply and fellow up with the pink beige shade to create flawless eye coverage
  • Beige-Perfect for concealing blemishes on your face.
  • Deeper Beige with tinges of brown-Mix with beige to create heavier coverage for blemishes, skin imperfections, etc...
  • Transulent White Powder-Transulent powder to set concealers.
The concealers all have a moisturizing formula so it's perfect for those of us with drier skin or dry under eye areas. The setting powder allows the concealer to set and hold wear for around seven hours before a touch up is needed.

For very dark circles the deeper beige shade in the palette can be used in conjunction with the pinkish ivory shade. Conceal with the deeper beige and place the ivory shade on top to brighten the eye area.

Mixing, matching, and combining shades to suit both your skin tone and skin problems make this palette versatile and easy to use. Coverage is of medium pigmentation but the darkest shade may very well be buildable to cover up stubborn dark circles. The palette only comes in one color varation and is suitable for most skin tones do to the ability to mix shades.

All in all I think it's a rather good deal and I recommend checking it out for yourself. Four concealers plus a transculent powder is truly a great deal at $39 USD.
