Clinique Airbrush Concealer in Fair

I've heard some negative things about this product, but I personally love it. I think where people are going wrong is that they expect it to be a full-coverage concealer. It's a bit of a misnomer on Clinique's part, because it does not provide a lot of coverage but it illuminates beautifully. If you have very dark circles, you need to be using a concealer with a salmon base. My favorite one is Eve Pearl's Salmon Concealer.

Because this is light-reflecting, you really don't want to use a large amount of it. It won't look natural in real life or pictures. I use my salmon concealer first to cancel out any dark circles and then lightly layer this on top. It does not settle into fine lines and works on other areas that you may want to highlight on your face. I don't use this on blemishes or anything of the like.

I consider this to be an alternative to the YSL Touche Eclat though it is limited with its shades, only offering three. If you want something like this, it may still be in your interest to look into YSL since they offer a handful of shades. The Airbrush Concealer has lasted me a really long time making it a real value at $19.50 US/$25.50 CA.

You will have to rotate the bottom a few times extra the first time to get product to come out. After that, it only takes once or twice but it does get a little messy around the applicator area. I apply it with the included brush, but blend it with a MAC 224. It layers beautifully over other concealers and does not look caked on. For me, it works like a charm.

Note: I have not tried Maybelline's Dream Lumi concealer, but it looks like a similar product. If you've tried it, let me know what you think!
