{Clinique Advanced Concealer}

There comes a time in every woman’s life when she trades in the mediocre for something with more substance. In the case of concealers, you should never settle for anything sub-par. You do so much every day that your makeup needs to be versatile and be able to keep up with you. That’s why the Multitasker concealer is a go-to choice for the on-the-go type of gal.

The Multitasker: Clinique Advanced Concealer

{Formula} Creamy application dries to a matte, powder finish. Excellent full coverage for blemishes and under eye circles. By comparison, the Lightweight is most suitable for concealing under eye circles and the Heavyweight is most beneficial for covering dark spots and blemishes.

You will get more use from the Multitasker since it can essentially do both jobs. Sounds like someone deserves a promotion! Note: The cream-to-powder finish is not ideal for very fine lines or severely dry skin, as powder texture can accentuate these characteristics.

{Packaging} This concealer comes in a squeezable plastic tube with needle-nose nozzle. Very easy to control how much product is dispensed. The small opening is ideal for sanitizing, as it minimizes the amount of unused product that is exposed to air. Very easy to clean–no icky build up here.

Tip: Any plastic tube, be it for concealer, lip gloss or lotion can be cut with scissors so you can access every last morsel. That means more bang kaboom for you hard earned buck. Just make sure that you secure the opened end with something strong like a binder clip and keep it in the fridge for up to one week. Toss the leftovers if the product hardens, changes color or develops an odor. Gross.

{Application} Just like toothpaste, gently squeeze the tube from the crimped end and move product toward the opening. The nozzle is small like a frosting piper and allows for precision. I place the product on the back of my hand and use my ring finger to apply to face.  Just dot four times under the eye and blend inward toward inner tear duct.

For blemishes, I apply a thin layer right next to the redness and pat around the area. I gently move inward until the whole blemish is covered. Set with a translucent powder and be prepared to watch dark circles and spots disappear. Victory!
