For those who had requested me for my high 5 favorite makeup products previous to final week, concealer would not have even made the checklist. However I would not be scripting this assessment if that was nonetheless the case. To my shock, the Kosas Revealer Concealer has satisfied me it deserves a everlasting spot in my routine. In contrast to the cakey and unnatural concealers of Sarah’s previous, this creamy, medium-coverage system is sort of a buttery deal with for my pores and skin. It melts all the way down to a seamless end that appears extremely pure and glowy whereas hiding dark spots and uneven texture. With the model’s current 12-shade enlargement bringing the whole to twenty-eight complete shades, I’ve lastly discovered my excellent match in Tone 3.2 (gentle with impartial olive undertones).
The brand new shades took practically a 12 months to formulate with the assistance of Kosas’ product improvement workforce, trusted make-up artist Robin Black, and a testing panel of 35 individuals made up of numerous pores and skin tones and undertones, Kosas founder Sheena Yaitanes tells Attract. “We wished to go deeper on undertones and expanded to incorporate a brand new olive undertone family,” she provides.
These additions permit extra individuals to attain the specific results they’re searching for, like “correcting blueness or redness, protecting darkish circles, or spot-concealing throughout their faces,” Yaitanes says.
Since Kosas abides by the identical requirements as Clean at Sephora and Credo, beauty chemist Perry Romanowski says the concealer’s system could also be helpful for individuals who want to keep away from sure chemical compounds like polyethylene glycol (PEGs), that are used to melt pores and skin and stabilize oils. (Whereas most varieties of PEGs are unlikely to penetrate the pores and skin, some may probably be irritating for sensitive skin.)
