Cosmetics Review: Korres Quercetin & Oak Antiageing & Antiwrinkle Concealer

The ProductKorres Quercetin & Oak Antiageing & Antiwrinkle Concealer

The Review: I have a weird love-hate relationship with concealer: I love the idea of my sleep-deprivation-induced dark circles disappearing and my zits being hidden.  I hate how no matter what type I try, it never quite blends into my skin tone, resulting in my spending buttloads of time using foundation and whatnot to get it to look natural. I think part of the problem is my weird skin-tone. It's kind of neutral, and I think most concealers wind up looking too pink or too yellow on me. This concealer, however, is one of the few I've tried that I could see myself committing to.

I love the texture of this concealer. It's so creamy and moisturizing that it almost feels like an undereye treatment. I really appreciated that Korres actually had a concealer color that worked for me, but I was most impressed with how nicely it covered my dark circles without looking too obvious. I didn't find it to be too greasy or matte, just a nice happy medium, and it worked well with my foundation. No sinking into the creases. No fading after a good eight hours. And, while it has a ton of pigment, it blended well and didn't give me a case of the dreaded Reverse Raccoon Eye, a most terrible makeup affliction. Not familiar with RRE? Well, look no further. Eva Longoria's here to educate you:
Never, ever piss off your makeup artist... 
All in all, I thought this was a great product. I can't say anything about the anti-ageing and anti-wrinkling properties and have a feeling it's probably a gimmick, but since it is pretty moisturizing for a concealer, it certainly shouldn't make your fine lines look any more pronounced.

  1. Oooh, I may have to try this next time I'm in the market for concealer. I wish it came in more colors though, sometimes I am too dark for those shades. Right now I use the Make Up Forever full cover concealer, which costs $30 (it does last a long LONG time though). I really like it and a little goes a long way, so I find I don't get that cakey feeling.
