I was introduced to this brand by a friend, and am fast finding lots of great things in them. Today, I’ll review their newest concealer, Full Cover.
This concealer is touted as an extreme camouflage concealer. What it means, I think is that its thick enough to cover even the most extreme of imperfections on the skin, and this includes tattoos! The official spiel offers this piece of wisdom:-
Full Cover is perfect for concealing the most extreme flaws, such as scars, severe skin damage, beauty spots, depigmentation or birthmarks. It can even hide tattoos. Waterproof and long-lasting, it holds even under extreme conditions thanks to its perfectly stable formula. It evens the skin tone and camouflages imperfections for a long period of time
I’ve been using this concealer in #4 for about 10 days now. #4 is the perfect colour for me. It melts into my natural skintone, and it doesn’t even look like I’m using any concealer at all. My skintone just looks even and smooth.
I use it mainly to cover the few freckles and pigmentation discolourations on my cheeks. Full Cover does a pretty decent job covering the worst of the discolourations. However, it doesn’t cover everything, as some discolourations still show through. I used to get a pretty decent cover even with L’oreal Touche Magique, which costs a third of the price.
However, one aspect in which Full Cover wins hands down, is how long it lasts. I put it on in the morning, and after dusting some loose powder over it, my blemishes are still covered up even at the end of the day! Now, thats something L’oreal Touch Magique cannot do. For a no makeup look, I can just dab some Full Cover on my blemishes, dust some loose powder all over my face, and walk out of the house, looking relatively blemish and makeup-free.
I cannot vouch for its waterproof qualities, but my friend has told me that she went swimming with it, and still looked perfect after that. Similarly, I cannot vouch for it covering tattoos, but I have no doubt it can.
The texture is creamy and it doesn’t go on cakey. It sinks into your skin and should be applied before foundation. The best part about this concealer is that if after applying loose powder you still feel like you need more camouflage, you can just dab it on AFTER powder. I tried it and it covers up better, and doesnt look cakey. Wonderful stuff!
Full Cover costs RM95 for a 15ml tube and is available at all Make Up For Ever counters (U Parkson 1 Utama and KLCC). Slightly pricey but you don’t use much. Its worth it!
Update: As at March 2008 the price of Full Cover is now RM100. Still worth it because I’ve only just bought my 2nd tube!
Pros: Covers up blemishes well, not cakey, long-lasting
Cons: Bit pricey
