As the famous quote says “We live only to discover beauty. All else is a form of waiting.”
Blemishes, under-eye circles, unsightly marks – or indeed, all three – concealers are a true beauty hero when it comes to hiding all manner of imperfections. Whether you require subtle, sheer coverage or a more heavy-duty camouflage effect for those particularly trying early mornings, concealer is the make-up item many of us wouldn’t leave the house without. At the same time, finding a perfect concealer for your skin is a task. Today, I am going to review my personal favourite, ‘Clinique line smoothing concealer’.

QUICK TIP: To avoid flaky skin, Use a primer before the application of the concealer
My Experience with Clinique Line Smoothing Concealer
I had troubles getting the right concealer for my skin for a long time. Either they would be too light or too deep. After having encounters with several dissatisfying products, I decided to switch to a high-end concealer. I walked into a Sephora store and tried many concealers before buying the Clinique one. The application of this product is effortless and it covers my under-eye circles amazingly. You have to “melt it in” which means tapping it in with a finger and using your body heat to melt it into the skin. Small amounts of this product gives a good coverage, so it turns out to be a long time investment. It is an excellent skin brightener as well.
Overall Performance of Clinique Line Smoothing Concealer
The only disadvantage of this concealer is that hot and humid areas don’t support this product. It will become cakey after a while.
Highlights of the product:
– Skin brightening ingredients.
– Covers all blemishes and gives full coverage.
– Work in tandem with your foundation to get an even skin tone.
– Comes in three different shades.
– No shimmer/glitter after application.
To avoid this product from getting cakey in humid areas, use a loose powder after the application.
Would I recommend?
I would surely recommend this product to you all. It’s a must buy for long term usage and definitely worth the price.
