This might be the best concealer ever made
Yes, this is a bold statement, but I’m making it nonetheless. I still love my NARS Creamy Radiant Concealer and the iconic Cle De Peau, but Charlotte Tilbury’s new Magic Away Liquid Concealer takes complexion perfection to another level thanks to an innovative formula and applicator.
I'm ordinarily scared of a concealer or foundation billed as full-coverage, but in this case you get the power to virtually erase dark circles, redness, blemishes and other imperfections with no visible evidence that you’ve covered anything up. Once you roll it on with the soft sponge applicator, it blends seamlessly with the skin without settling into fine lines or pores. Honestly, on my better skin days I’m able to get away with just a little of this concealer under my eyes and around my nose and still like what I see skin-wise in the mirror.
Amongst the magical ingredients are Persian silk tree extract, which literally stretches across the skin to smooth texture and tighten things up a wee bit (in addition to hiding whatever it is you don’t want the world to see). There’s also anti-aging palmitoyl glycine to help rejuvenate your skin while you’re wearing it, plus radiance-enhancing extract of wild indigo.
Now let’s talk about the applicator… Once you give the wand a few twists, the concealer appears on the super-soft and fluffy sponge. The shape is designed to hug the contours of the undereye (and precisely place product everywhere else, too)—and you’re supposed to roll it across your skin, although dotting it on has worked just fine for me.
This “magic eraser” is available in 17 long-wearing, water-resistant(!) shades, but get your while you can because this concealer is one of the hottest beauty buys so far this fall. I give it six stars—and you will, too!
