Prescriptives Flawless Skin Total Protection Concealer Review

Continuing my concealer coverage I've been trying out Prescriptives Flawless Skin Total Protection Concealer. Now not all of my concealers contain SPF so I was quite delighted when I noticed that Prescriptives Flawless Skin Total Protection Concealer had an SPF of 25. I'm sitting and raking my brain (which isn't working very well the past week or so) trying to recall a single concealer in my arsenal that sports such a high SPF 25 and I can't think of a single one.....Hmmmm....I love the fact that it conceal and offers SPF for my delicate eye area! Sweet!



If you're a fan of Benefit Boi-ing (the Muse's holiest of holy grail concealers) this is pretty comparable in formula and coverage. Taking into consideration that Bobbi Brown's line up of concealers is highly moisturizing and emollient you may seek something a bit more drier in texture if you're skin is oily or you're just not loving a formula such as Bobbi's. Prescriptives Flawless Skin Total Protection Concealer is quite a good deal drier but still manages to remain creamy while offering medium to full coverage. If you love Benefit Boi-ing but you are finding coverage isn't enough or disappointed that it's only available in three shades this would be a good duplicate with more color options and just about the same formula plus pigmented enough to hide all your woes.





I actually loved this as it creates good flawless coverage under my eyes without creasing, pilling, or fading. It pretty much lasts all day with little to no touch ups in between. Sadly, if I don't prep properly it does have a nasty habit of drying my eye area out drastically which is the reason I stopped using Boi-ing. I'm unsure if I'd recommend it for older eyes, fine lines, or dry eyes as the formula can age eyes if you haven't properly prepped. I think it blends quite well but I really do need to moisturize heavily with both an eye cream and a serum prior to use. I'll continue using the compact I currently have but I probably will debate with myself should I need to repurchase just because my eyes are so terribly dry and can't take this particular formula. I so love my Benefit Boi-ing and I honestly felt like the Prescriptives Flawless Skin Total Protection Concealer was a near perfect dupe for it...mmmm..if we can just have a bit more of a creaminess to the formula that may help solve the problem of my dry under eye woes!





All in all I'd recommend checking this out if you have normal to oily skin minus any dryness. I think coverage is excellent for hiding small to large problems. It does a great job of refreshing the eye area and making it brighter and more awake.

Have you tried the Cle de Peau concealer? It's now my go-to product for when I have dark circles, amazing!

I use Clarins primer underneath and I find that it works well with my dry skin.

Aww, it's a shame the Prescriptives concealer wasn't that good! I actually went out and bought Boi-ing on the strength of your rave reviews :) Honestly, I probably wouldn't have bought it if it weren't for my avid reading of your blog, as I've never really bought much BeneFit - aside from a BeneTint that I hardly use. It took ages for me to decide whether I was a 1 or a 2 (really, I swatched it several times at Sephora...haha...the SA nearby was giving me funny looks), but I figured it was mostly going to be used for the undereye area, so I went with the 1 and it worked out well. Granted, I'm in my early twenties and have combo skin, so I haven't noticed any drying effects. Did you notice the drying immediately or over a period of time? I'm investing in some new eye cream but it's still in the mail, so I'm just curious!

P.S. it really is great and easy to put on...I'm just sad when I take off my makeup and see my undereye circles again! (it's exam time, haha) :)

hi kerri!

Sorry for the delayed reply :) Thanks for reading my blog so often, I truly appreciate it :) Are you liking Boi-ing?

You're still very young and def do not have to worry about it being dry on you :) I noticed when I turned 30 many concealers were very drying for my eye area....

After prepping I'm ok but I can't even attempt to apply without serious prepping!

I'm so glad to hear it's covering your woes :) It's truly a fantastic concealer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hugs!
