Smashbox High Definition Liquid Concealer (Medium/Dark) Review

First of all, I want to give a great big shout out to my senior year in high school, ACTs, SATs, College Applications, College Essays, Scholarship Applications and my job as a Cashier Slave for stressing me out and wrecking havoc on my skin!

...and with skin problems, comes a killer concealer review. 
(hehe, killer concealer...)
at least one good thing can come from it!

Shade Description: For medium skin with olive/yellow undertones

Alrighty, so, I got this wayyyy back last January from Sephora for $18. I only use this one for special occasions, such as a date or a photo shoot or something like that. Since it so expensive for such a small tube, I want to keep it as long as I possibly can. 

(This is about how much I use)

My Cheeks: My problem areas: The only place I apply concealer.

This concealer is not to good to put onto healing pimples. It leaves that nasty make-up ring which makes it evident that you're wearing concealer.

This concealer hides blemishes (not pimples) very well. It evens out my skin. Yay! 

The Review:
Color: 4/5 
As an African-American girl, finding the right shade can be tricky. But thanks to those beautiful angels at Sephora, I got this almost perfect shade. It's a little on the light side, but with lots of blending it looks believable.

Blend-ability: 4/5 
You can blend with your fingers, a sponge, or a blending brush. Either way, you skin will mend with the make-up for a natural effect.

Coverage: 5/5 
The concealer its self is very thick and creamy. Just look at the before and after pictures, my blemishes are covered for the most part and the redness is reduced.

Endurance: 3/5 
I live in hot, sweaty, humid Texas. Therefor, my concealer always seems to disappear by the end of the day, and needs to be re-applied.

Overall: 4/5 
I'm quite fond of this little tube! This is my go to product when I don't have time to take my acne scars. The color isn't to ashy looking, it blends well, it covers amazingly and I never have to use much! I like to say that it gives me angel skin.   I'd recommend this product to all my friends and will definitely repurchase it in the future.


  1. Another line you might want to try for concealer and foundation is Bobbi Brown. Her line has yellow undertones an d she caters to ethnic skin tones. I have hard to match skin too and she's the only line that matches me perfectly. It's not cheap but her products last forever.
