Hello beautiful ladies! SmileI’ve been daydreaming of the Hourglass cosmetics for a really long time. That’s why now I try to test out as much as possible and fill in my collection with their makeup products.

Today I want to share my thoughts on the Hourglass Hidden Corrective Concealer which has become a hit for my everyday makeup.

The design of all the Hourglass products makes me really raving about them. So simple, yet alluring and stylish!

The concealer is housed into a metal case of dark chocolate color. It’s pretty heavy in my hands. There aren’t any scratches, scalds or any other boo-boos, given that for me it’s a great throw-in option that travels from one purse to another all the time. The lettering is here and nothing has vanished.

Size - 3.5g

Manufacturing country - USA

It expires within 18 months of opening.

Hourglass Hidden Corrective Concealer is a classic stick twist-up product.

The texture is creamy, but I wouldn’t say that it’s soft. It’s more like pliant, yet taut. At the same time the concealer is easy to distribute over my skin. The coverage is light/medium, which is possible to build-up.

If I apply the product right from the stick, then the coverage looks fairly thick and I risk getting all my dry patches accentuated. Besides, this concealer doesn’t get on well with makeup sponges or brushes. You should apply it with your fingers.

That’s why I usually use my fingertips to take it out of the stick and apply where I need it. I use the same finger to blend it out.

The Hidden Corrective Concealer offers a selection of 10 shades. I chose the second shade Fair. This shade is neutral undertone-wise.

The main thing that I require from any concealer is to diminish the signs of bad sleep and fatigue. It’s also important for me that the product has a non-drying formula. What’s more, I’m not a fan of thick concealers, that’s why a light coverage is one more thing that plays a role, when I’m choosing my go-to concealer for everyday makeup.

My under eye dark circles aren’t the darkest in the world, though I still have them. I also have some reddening because of constant lack of sleep.

I apply this concealer the way I described above, I mean not right from the stick, but with my fingers. I apply it generally accentuating my inner corners. Because of the texture, this Hourglass Hidden Corrective Concealer doesn’t set and remains movable. So it requires powder setting.

And here’s how it looks in my total look. Lightweight and natural - perfect for everyday wear.

The concealer doesn’t dry out my under eye skin, the most important thing is to use the right powder for setting.

Also, aside the dark circles correcting, this concealer is also fine to camouflage my skin blemishes. If I have about 5 minutes for my makeup, then I’ll use this concealer to apply under my eyes and over pimples and other skin woes. If I have some more time, then I apply this concealer to my under eyes only, because my foundation cancels out my minor skin blemishes beautifully.

Hourglass Hidden Corrective Concealer is my go-to everyday concealer, which I appreciate in all the respects. It is lightweight, it offers good coverage and I like the way it applies and blends out. Moreover, it stays on my skin nicely.

If I lose it tomorrow and I have to buy a new concealer for me, I’ll go and buy this Hourglass Hidden Corrective Concealer again.

Price: $34.00

Thanks for your attention! Have a enjoyable shopping day! Wink
