I know you guys loved the EOTD that I put up with the Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner Post. Though the liner worked out well, the real unsung hero was my concealer - The Cover FX Camouflage Concealer.

To show how awesome these are let me show you a pic of me without the concealer


There you go ! The things I do for the blog...
Notice the evil inner corner of my eye. Its darker than the Dating in the dark room.

I need to pay extra attention there and somehow most concealers just crack and look dry in the inner corner. Y'all know I am dead serious when it comes to concealers. Throughout a year and a half of blogging how many concealers have I recommended to you - one. Just one. Does not mean I didn't test any . I tested plenty but none were good. None worthy of my time and space on this blog. That's how serious I am about concealers.

After so long I came across another one that was great enough to be recommended to y'all.


The Cover FX Camouflage Concealer is the newest product from Cover FX. This is what Cover FX has to say about their new range of concealers - " Conceal FX Camouflage Concealer, an instant, flaw-erasing concealer cream with a lightweight velvet finish. Conceal FX is not just perfect for your skin but also great for HD film/video, seamlessly covering anything you want to hide, providing opaque, long-lasting, water-resistant coverage and can be used to instantly erase under eye circles, redness, dark spots, sun damage, blemishes, tattoos, birthmarks, fatigue or skin trauma. "

Here is a list of the shades available and the corresponding foundation shades in the range.

Conceal FX Shade Ideal for Foundation Shade Range
X-Light 0-20
Light 20-40
Light-Medium 40-60
Medium 60-90
Deep B0 - 25
X-Deep B25-65

Having had a very good experience with their foundations I was so looking forward to trying out their concealers. I got in Light and it worked very well with my skin tone. The shade is very warm and has a touch of peach to it which is extremely important to cover up the bluish purple tinge that dark circles have. Another reason why peach correctors are recommended for severe dark circles.

The concealer comes in a tube with a teeny tiny hole. You need extremely little amount of the concealer and you get just that much at a time. Absolutely no wastage. The tube seems a lot more sanitary to me than pans coz I am not dipping my finger into the whole product at a time.

The Camouflage concealer has a creamy texture but isn't very creamy. Very creamy concealers tend to crease easily, disappear faster and do not provide extreme coverage. At the same time if its not creamy, the concealer remains as blobs because it becomes very difficult to apply and spread. With this concealer there is good balance in the texture so as to make it creamy enough to spread easily but opaque enough to cover up everything with very little product.

I tried the shades Light & Light to Medium. Light is bit more peachy than Light To Medium which has a little more yellow and looks lighter than the shade Light. I found that Light suited me the best and looked great in pictures so I decided to stick with it.


Word of advice : Always use a hydrating, oil free eye cream under concealers.

I agree with hi--I don't see any dark circles!

This does seem like a good concealer, but I don't have $25 to spend on a concealer!

Hi hi

Aww..you're too kind. Agreed it isnt technically dark under the eyes but since my eyes are a little on the smaller side those dark suckers on the inner corners make em look smaller :(

Hi Palak !

I wear NC 35 to NC 40 deoending on my tan. And yup, light. Never go by the name of the shades. Best to try them. IF I went by shade names I almost always go for Mediums.
I have tried Lakme Souffle and love em ! They are light and airy ! And I go by Indian Girl. You can call me IG :)

Hi Foodie !

You know what, Maybelline makes a very good concealer -I think its called Maybelline Age rewind concealer. Its very very very popular. I will see if I can get my hand on it and shall review it. Hopefully it will be a good alternative !

Hey , my fav are l'oreal products here & I guess they are available every where. But I do like the recent Anamika Khanna Lakme collection too, especially the lipcolours & the lipliners. Perhaps u could try those.
