I have about a million concealers, many of which I like, but I’m always on the hunt for concealers that cover better, last longer, color correct when necessary. Recently, I succumbed to the siren song on Facebook of a concealer trio from a brand that was new to me, Judith August Cosmetics Solutions.
Judith August Cosmetics Solutions – concealer, cream foundation, acne/blemish concealer pencil, as well as a full line of makeup – were developed to cover and color correct serious skin discoloration including scars, rosacea, birth marks, even tattoos etc. You should see the before and after photos. Very impressive. While my issues are not that serious, I wanted to try it.
I liked the look of her Orange Masking Creme Superior Cover for Dark Circles. It’s also called Concealer and Foundation for Redness and Sensitive Skin. It has three shades of cream concealer that can be used individually or mixed together. On Facebook, I found a code for 30% off my purchase. I took a chance.
The Orange Masking Creme concealer arrived a few days ago. Along with the purse size trio, they included a spatula and a small blender wedge. The shades are good for me, and I think they’d be good for fair/light to medium skin tones. The Judith August Cosmetics website says that the three shades contain every undertone needed to cover dark circles: pink, peach and yellow. The concealers look peachy-pink, peachy and orangey to balance out and color correct dark circles.
I’ve been using Orange Masking Creme for a few days under my eyes and on the few dark spots that just don’t want to leave me. I’ve used all three shades, and they are all opaque, i.e. full coverage. It is definitely creamy. I discovered it on the website, it protects sensitive skin with pomegranate, shea butter and aloe vera. It also has two UV blockers. The ingredients help retain moisture while fighting free radicals which is great because the concealer doesn’t dry out during the day.
I tried a few different ways of applying. I tried using the deepest, most orange shade under my eyes with foundation on top. I’ve tried the lightest shade under my eyes on top of foundation, and it does a nice job brightening. Next, I’m going to try it on my red eyelids to camouflage my redness. I’ve used the medium shade on my dark spots on top of foundation. Because the weather has been very hot and humid, I’ve used setting powder on top, and I’ve had quite good results getting it to last through this weather.
Check out this cute short video of beauty vlogger, ThatGirlShaexo, demonstrating how she uses it. Her results are impressive! This concealer that can also be used as a foundation is fabulous at concealing redness.
I like this handy cream concealer. It’s soft and easy to blend. It is what I had hoped Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage would be. Secret Camouflage has only two shades, they’re less peachy, and they are much stiffer to use. And Secret Camouflage is more expensive.
So I wanted to tell you about my new discovery, Judith August Orange Masking Creme. I’m going to continue playing with the three shades and see if I can come up with my Holy Grail recipe for perfect coverage.
Check it out on the Judith August Cosmetics Solutions website, and tell me your impression. The concealer trio is priced at $22. The website says you can get 20% off your first purchase. And keep your eyes open, you may find a 30% off deal like I did.
