The moment I heard of a high end concealer sold in a hefty 15ml helping, I was intrigued. Looking at things from a money:volume ratio, this effectively slashes the price by two thirds in comparison to a lot of other brands. The generosity of Clarins had me sceptical, could a concealer be all that is they were practically giving it away? Well, there was only one way to find out so I picked this tube up and I thought I'd share what I think.
The shade range of this product is a bit rubbish, I fall into shade 1, and there are 3 in the range but hopefully they will extent the range to suit deeper skintones. I really like the packaging for this product, the pointed tip means you don't end up squeezing out tonnes of product so you don't waste any. The texture is a nice and creamy one so the concealer meshes really well with your skin. It works really well on both dark circles and discolouration so is a nice all rounder and you don't have to have two concealers taking up precious make-up bag space. I think it works great either on it's own for a 'just a dap of concealer and a lick of mascara', with liquid foundation as well as powder foundation (stay tuned for my review on BareMinerals' Blemish Remedy soon!) so I think it is a versatile all rounder, which also happens to be half the size of your standard foundation bottle.
I cannot fault this concealer, except for the shade selection, and after a quick click on my calculator, it is 2 and a half times cheaper than my coveted Nars concealer ml for ml (in fact, this concealer is 50p cheaper without taking the volume into consideration.) and I think if you're somebody like me who has used up multiple tubes of that banging concealer, and you are finding it hard to justify yet another tube of the stuff, I reckon give this a go and I think you'll find the pining subdues itself. This is actually my first Clarins purchase, and I've been pleasantly surprised! If you have any Clarins recommendations leave them down below!
