Bombshell Review: BareMinerals SPF 20 Correcting Concealer in Deep 2 + Pics & Swatches

I’ve never worn much BareMinerals (with the exception of their 100% Natural Lip Gloss, which was my go-to nude lippie for ages), but their newest crop of products are pretty hard to resist. A girl can never have too many good concealers on hand, so I was anxious to try their new BareMinerals SPF 20 Correcting Concealer, $20. BareMinerals is known for their powder-based products, so the idea of a full-coverage, cream product from the brand was too intriguing too pass up.

Here’s what the product claims:

  • COVERAGE: medium-to-full
  • TEXTURE: creamy
  • Available in 8 shades

This creamy formula combines SPF protection with superior, lightweight coverage that blends seamlessly to conceal blemishes, dark under-eye circles and other skin imperfections all day long. More than a concealer, it also works to decrease the appearance of dark spots and discolorations for a radiant, even-toned complexion.

KEY INGREDIENTS

  • Copper is an ingredient known for its brightening and nourishing properties.

Formulated without parabens, synthetic fragrances and artificial oils.

I tried this concealer in Deep 2, the deepest shade offered. Take a look at some pics:

I really like this concealer! It does, in fact, provide full coverage, but I found it to give the fullest coverage with the least layering when applied over my foundation or bb cream. The peachiness of Deep 2 worked well at disguising dark circles, but despite it’s creamy formula, I found it to be less emollient than I would like for my under eye area, which tends to be very dry. This may not be an issue for you, depending on what the skin in your eye area is like, and does help it to stay in place.

This concealer really excelled at covering my dark spots with just a layer or two dabbed on with my finger or a concealer brush. The peachiness came out when applied to my face, but blended into my skin tone well. I loved the lightweight feel and great coverage, and may pick up Dark 2 as I lose my summer tan. This is a really good concealer, but the limited range of deeper shades will keep a lot of  brown girls from being able to use it. If you’re near a BareMinerals store or counter this is definitely worth a stop in to try it out. According to their website, the two lone brown shades are supposed to match all of their Dark and Deep foundation shades, but hopefully the brand will release more shades.

A few more BareMinerals products may have to make their way into my fall beauty arsenal, and their The Happy Place neutral shadow palette and Ready solid Foundation, may be my first acquisitions, lol. BareMinerals has also released their new Stroke of Light Eye Brightener, $22, which looks like it may be comparable to YSL’s Touche Eclat, which is a fave of mine, but pricey at $44. I’ll definitely have to try it out and report back.

I just may be a BareMinerals convert, lol! Have you tried any BareMinerals products? Will you try any of their new product releases?

    I picked up the Stroke of LIght Eye Brightener and I have been loving it. I want to pick up the new concealer too since I finally used up my Bobbi Brown concealer which I feel like it took forever to use up.
