The search for the perfect concealer is always on! I’m almost always disappointed with concealers because as soon as the moisture has evaporated or sunk in or whatever, you’re left with the dry ingredients all neatly sitting in your lines. Under eye concealers are the most tricky to get right, and I’d say that ReCover Correct & Conceal isn’t particularly for that area anyway – it’s more about tackling redness. I don’t have a great deal of facial redness but do have some around my nose so I was able to test it out there.
You can probably see from the swatch (there are an intial five shades) that it’s nicely fluid which makes blending very easy. Coverage was complete which is impressive for such a fluid texture and furthermore, it stayed all day – it didn’t disappear. It’s no surprise that ReCover Conceal & Correct is made by a make up artist (Annabel Jardella) who understands pigments, and more importantly, understands skin tone nuance. Yellow based pigments are used to balance out redness. I’d make a distinction between the usual beauty term ‘skin redness’ that’s often associated with rosacea (because some brands aren’t allowed to base claims on rosacea so they coyly refer to it as skin redness) and what ReCover is good at which is tamping down high colour, red marks from spots, or red veins without feeling like you’re wearing a layer of Dulux.
The only thing I’m not so keen on is the 24K gold plate applicator (in the main picture; the little tubes are samples) – this type of applicator always dishes out too much in my opinion, so personally, I’d squeeze a small amount onto a brush or fingertips rather than use the tip to apply directly. It’s also whacked the price up to £28 for 5ml. However, it’s such decent concealer in a very fine texture that if you do have redness to cover up this is definitely worth having in your beauty stash. You need only the very tiniest amount.
ReCover doesn’t launch til October, but do keep your eyes peeled on their holding site HERE.
