Concealer with staying power! 18 hours wear for total blemish cover. This long lasting creamy formulation gives full coverage and a flawless finish.
Today’s post will be a quickie tipp for all Boots shoppers out there (did you know they ship internationally now…):
A mighty fine, really light concealer!
I’ve been writing about concealers quite a bit in the past and I actually have found a trusty one in the Maybelline Age Rewind for any undereye issues. Despite that, I made it a habit to check the shelves on the high street on the hunt of more light coloured concealers with nice textures. This one I’ve shown in my last Tops & Flops post before.
Although I tend to use creamy camouflage type of concealers on spots and redness, I like to grab a liquid concealer on “dry days” to take care of the redness around my nose. Liquid concealers though, in the right shade and coverage, can do the undereye job as well in one go.
And – as you might already assume – this concealer by Seventeen is one of these allrounder products! I still am always sort of astonished when i find a really light shade in face products, this one named “extra fair” (!) I just had to get.
Seventeen Stay Time extra fair • Collection Lasting Perfection Fair • iQ Concealer Ivory • Rimmel Match Perfection Ivory • Maybelline Age Rewind Fair
As you can see from the swatch Stay Time is a great, light match for my skin. The undertone is pretty neutral as well. It is not as light as one of my favourites, the iQ one, but works great in cancelling out any darkness, more so than highlighting the undereye area. In comparison I find the Stay Time concealer thinner in consistency than the Lasting Perfection by collection.
Personally, I really like using it on the face and/or on days I don’t wear any foundation at all and just balance out my skintone and set it with some powder. The coverage is just about right, medium I’d say, while I really need to mention that it works even better if you let it cook on the skin for a bit. Blending it in after that makes it easier to layer as well.
For pictures I applied it on my undereye circles – because really, who would want to see my red nostrils up close ? As mentioned on the blog before my circles aren’t that deep but sleep deprivation makes them appear darker after all.
Looking at the pictures myself now I am actually even more impressed by the result. Setting it with powder makes the concealer stay put for your average day just fine, no creasing or fading. I find the texture smooth and nice for applying it on the delicate skin around your eyes, not at all dragging or splotchy.
This Seventeen Stay Time concealer made itself rather comfortable in my daily routine by now. Since Boots is now shipping internationally I don’t feel so guilty praising a product from one of their own brands anymore ?
