Jane Iredale Zap&Hide

There’s nothing better than innovative, new products that work as well as they sound, not that I’m surprised coming from Jane Iredale, but treatment concealers aren’t the easiest to pull off.

Typically, brands have tried to put the treatment within the concealer which makes for a cakey mess making the blemish look worse with the makeup than it would on its own. Although the concealer side of this double ended stick does contain tea tree oil and lavender to soothe and help with inflammation, it wasn’t to the detriment of the concealer itself which is creamy and easy to blend with great staying power and a lot of pigment.

Of course you want to treat the blemish first with the treatment side so it can start working on inflammation and start heeling without any irritation or disruption of makeup application.

Now you can try Jane out for 20% off of your first order by entering 3250 at checkout, good for online use only.

Smashbox Photo Op Under Eye Brightener

Tired, sluggish eyes be gone with Smashbox’s Photo Op. Just a dab under eye concealer delivers a soft-focus, water-colored look that’s lightweight and adds tons of radiance. Peptides and vitamins give the skin a boost as well as add moisture to prep the skin for concealer ensuring an even look.

Since it adds radiance, it can be used throughout the face where you’d like just a hint of lift- cheeks, orbital bone, and the corners of the eyes.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Concealer

Wow- I’m really loving the coverage of Estee Lauder’s Double Wear concealer as much as I love the staying power. Sometimes a concealer with coverage this fantastic turns cakey or needs some manipulation to actually give the appearance of skin while Double Wear glides on and disappears instantly.

Surprisingly, I like the wand applicator- I’d almost forgotten how simple they were to use. Just a dab over redness with a small pat into the skin and you’re set to go.

It’s transfer resistant, fragrance free, and stays put for a full 15 hours.

Sonia Kashuk Let’s Face It

Gals on the go and teens will really enjoy this all-in-one mineral blush, mineral makeup, and mineral concealer. Each separate compartment twists to connect to the one above it saving space and time spent searching for wayward products splashed around your bathroom or purse.

The consistency of the the powders were nice, they glided on and were sheer but still able to build but I was most surprised with the concealer which blended right into the skin both over and under the powder without appearing cakey.

For $15 you can have a great touch up kit for your bag, or a starter kit for teens since the sheerness prevents even the most heavy-handed from getting too out of control.

If you don’t wear foundation daily, chances are you have good skin, or are just not feeling the daily makeup routine. Either way, CARGO’s One Base might be a good solution for you.

I don’t agree with Jane Iredale’s Active Light- I have it and find that it’s best used under eye concealer only in the inner corners of the eye where you’re dark, so it brightens dark areas and won’t settle into fine lines.

Thoughts on the list? There are some on there I haven’t tried.
