e.l.f. Under Eye Concealer & Highlighter Review + Swatches

e.l.f. Under Eye Concealer & Highlighter Fair

Hello again!

This is a two-in-one product which contains a concealer on one side and a highlighter on the other side. Both sides have a doe-foot applicator which is my favourite for concealer since you can place it exactly where you want it and control the amount of product. This review is on the shade Fair/Glow.

The concealer has a very thin consistency; almost a liquid but not quite. It blends out very easily and provides little coverage. It doesn’t crease much throughout the day if set with powder right after application. This is the lightest shade and it is a good color for porcelain-light skin tones. (Swatches below)

The highlight end is a white shade with the same consistency as the concealer. It contains very fine silver shimmer which can only be seen if you are looking at it up close. The highlight end confuses me since I would not put a glittery, stark white shade under my eyes. Even when it is blended out, it remains white; leaving a white cast so I would not apply it to my cheekbones either.

The highlight is on the top and concealer on the bottom swiped with the applicator twice.

Overall, I would not recommend this because the highlighter end is unusable for most and there are so many other concealers that work better than this.

  1. I’ve had rotten luck with most of e.l.f.’s lighter coverage concealers, as they tend to not match my skin tone. The Studio Maximum Coverage Concealer works okay for covering blemishes, but for under eyes I prefer something with a much thicker texture. The Studio Complete Coverage Concealer (palette) is what I use for that, if I’m going with e.l.f. There are a couple of their thicker concealers that I still need to try, but I’ve pretty much decided at this point that e.l.f.’s concealers will only work for me on days when I really don’t need much. And I say that as an avid e.l.f. fangirl. I love a few of their foundations and powders as well as color products, but they really do need to step up their concealer game.

    My absolute favorite for complete coverage under the eyes remains Tarte’s Maracuja Creaseless Concealer. It gives an amazing full coverage and it won’t settle into any creases. It’s going to set you back $25, but it’s quite possibly the best under eye concealer I’ve tried, so for me it’s worth paying extra to wear it on days where I absolutely need the best coverage possible. As always with higher end makeup, be sure to try it out before you buy it. Sephora does sell it, and they’ll give you a sample to take home and try out if you ask them to make you one.

    • I don’t use elf concealers on the daily either. However I have dry undereyes and find that liquid concealers work the best on me. I’ve been loving the la girl pro and Maybelline master conceal recently but I think I’m going to try out some higher end ones to compare. πŸ™‚
