Guys and gals, I think I’ve discovered an unsung hero.
HD Brows (who I think are in the process of rebranding themselves as just ‘HD’) Conceal & Correct Palette – It’s hands down the best concealer palette I’ve used. It’s everything I hoped Laura Mercier’s Secret Camouflage would be, but wasn’t. FYI I don't hate Secret Camourflage, it's just very stiff and difficult to work with.
The palette comes in three colour-ways – light/medium, medium, medium/dark. I went for light/medium with the intention of using this for bridal work, but it’s actually a very good colour match to my own skin. That’s the beauty of having a palette with three shades – it’s completely customisable and covers you all year round. They’re full coverage conealers but they’re not cakey or drying, which is where Laura Mercier’s fell down and they’re luxuriously creamy and easy to apply. They blend beautifully too so you don’t get that dry/crusty edge where the concealing ends.
I primarily use this for pin-point concealing (Lisa Eldridge styleee) on spots and pigmentation – I have an annoying red burst-blood-vessel on my nose and a bindi style spot on my forehead. This discreetly covers them all day. It’s also an under eye bag slayer! Although I prefer not wear anything too heavy under le eyes, if the bags are especially dark – this zaps them good.
If you’re into extreme highlighting and contouring this would work a treat, and if you like to do that conceal around the brows thang, this is perfect! It’s creamy and glides around the arches with ease, but blends in and doesn’t look too obvious.
