e.l.f Studio Complete Coverage Concealer Review

Hey everyone today i am reviewing a Concealer Palette from the Studio Line by e.l.f:  I bought this in the hope that it would cover my crazy dark circles i have been suffering for about two years now and of course cover any blemishes i was to suffer.
So i got the e.l.f Studio Complete Coverage Concealer  which cost £3.50/$3/€4 each.  
As i used to use the Benefit Erase Paste in which i loved and adored but to be honest its quite expensive for me and i simply cant afford to be buying that on a regular basis so i have been in search for something that does near enough as good as job but that costs less too.  So i will go ahead and review this for you :) 
e.l.f Studio Complete Coverage Concealer
This is in Light 
e.l.f says:  Savvy beauty shoppers rejoice—now there is no need to buy new concealer from season to season for meeting the different needs your skin tone may have. e.l.f. introduces a sleek quad compact filled with four brilliant, customizable concealers ranging from light, medium and dark shades. A must have for anyone’s makeup kit these highly pigmented, professionally formulated concealers offer ultimate coverage to disguise a range of boo-boos and flaws including blemishes, dark circles, redness and uneven skin-tone for a flawless, makeup artist finish!


The e.l.f Studio Complete Coverage Concealer comes in 3 different shades "Light, Medium & Dark" .  I got the lightest one as i am about NC20-25 so i presumed that this one would be the best for me........
The Packaging 
The Packaging is pretty much the same as all the rest of the studio line........Its a slim black palette with a little clear window to show you what your product looks like......Inside is a small slim mirror and a little concealer brush which is quite handy on travel...Like for them days that a blemishes suddenly appears and you are not at home.   The Palette is quite sturdy so no fear of it breaking in your bag.
The Product 
As you can see you are getting 4 different concealers.....This is what i actually love about this you are guaranteed to find your proper shade of concealer be it one of these are the right one or mix and match until you find the right shade for you.........These concealers are quite creamy not very thick.....in some sense this would give you medium coverage whereas Benefit erase paste would give you full coverage.....But some other drugstore concealers can give you literally no coverage so thats an up for e.l.f..........
I sometimes suffer with crazy dark circles under my eyes and this sometimes wouldnt do me as this is where my benefit erase paste comes in and is perfect as its thick but somedays my dark circles are barely visable and that where this is perfect for me.  
When you look at the Palette in the picture the shades look near enough the same but when swatchesd they look different as you will see:  
Thick swatch on my hand 
A bit blended out on my arm 
As you can see they are all a little different.  The first two look very alike only the 1st one has a slight pinkish undertone whereas the 2nd has a yellow undertone.  The 3rd one has a slight pinkish undertone and the 4th is again another yellow toned concealer.  
My overall Opinion 
So e.l.f states that this is a "Complete Coverage" Concealer.......well it would be for people who suffer a little with dark under eye circles and slight blemishes but certainly not for anyone who suffers with hugely dark under eye circles and with regular blemishes.....Im not saying this is a bad product at all but just basically telling you what this can do and who this would best suit i like this product and i do find myself going for this most of the time......as i do have normal skin and dont suffer too often with blemishes.  This is very easy to apply i usually apply using my fingertips and set it with my usual powder.  
So in all this is quite good for the price and it will benefit alot of people out there but not everyone.  I think its definitely worth a try because its so cheap and better than so drugstore brands that are more expensive than this.  


I hope this was helpful to you and thanks for reading 
Take Care 
until next time 
Love Nina C
