Sephora Gel Concealer 2

Sephora Bright Future Gel Serum Concealer ($14) was an unexpected miss for me. I’m usually a careful buyer, although I’ve had occasional problems when buying sight unseen. This was one, unfortunately.

As background, this concealer is a liquid gel, with a doe foot applicator that is said to have brightening properties and that is perfect for the sensitive undereye area (it is infused with pineapple ceramide, promoted to improve skin texture and promote brightness). I ordered in the shade Buttercream #4 (light with a neutral undertone). I found this shade far too light for my NC15/ Chanel Ivoire skin tone. In fact, I’ll say this is unwearably light for my fair, warm skintone. Obviously, I should have purchased this in person.  Just keep in mind, if you are thinking of ordering online, maybe don’t do that. 

The texture of the concealer is, indeed, quite lightweight and pigmented. Unfortunately, I had problems with the longevity. It seems to migrate and move on my undereye area. Perhaps your experience will be different, and this is just my opinion and experience, but I found  it difficult to get more than a few hours wear before I needed to touch up.

I wish I had better news on this.  As with all reviews, your mileage may vary. Color issue aside, the coverage was quite good. The concealer didn’t seem to have any moisturizing properties, if anything it seem ever-so-slightly drying. I didn’t find that this gave me the all day wear that I was hoping to get. I far prefer the Guerlain Precious Light, Burberry Sheer Luminous #2, Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer (Custard), and Marc Jacobs Beauty Remedy Concealer Pen (Wake Up Call #2), among others.
