[REVIEW] Everyday Minerals Intensive Medium Concealer

Concealers have been a part of my life ever since I befriended acne which was waaaaaay back since Junior High School. I can't always expect the acne to disappear like the wind, but I can conceal them as to not attract more eyes towards my face. I have tried various concealers from creams, liquids, but never powder concealer. I have been hearing about powder concealers, especially green tinted ones, in helping to hide most of skin imperfections, including acne and/or acne scars. I recently discovered Everyday Minerals and their infamous concealers. However, I couldn't get my hands on the EDM Mint Color Corrector, so I grabbed two concealers namely EDM Multi Tasking Neutral and Intensive Medium. I bought the Try Me size which is sample sizes for Rp 150000,- if I'm not mistaken. So, without further ado, here is the review on the EDM Intensive Medium concealer (haven't tried out the multi tasking one).

Everyday Minerals Intensive Medium Concealer

For those who are serious about camouflaging evidence of skin imperfections, including dark circles, sun or age spots, blemishes, Intensive Concealers are the way to go. They contain more intense doses of pigments for thicker coverage without being cakey or unnatural. This shade is perfect for those with Light to Medium toned complexions.

Mica (CI 77019), Lauroyl Lysine. May Contain: Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Chromium Oxide Greens (CI 77288).
Mica: Is a naturally occurring mineral noted for its transparent sparkly luster.
Lauroyl Lysine: An amino acid derived from coconut fatty acid, contributing to the products silk like creamy texture and spreadability qualities.
Titanium Dioxide: An inert white mineral that is used as a color adjuster.
Iron Oxides: Cosmetic pigments used to add depths of color.
Chromium Oxide Greens: An inorganic bright green pigment.

Sprinkle the concealer powder into the lid of the jar. For best application, use a concealer brush. Dip your brush into the powder and apply directly onto the area of your skin in which you want extra coverage. Concealers perform best when applied before your foundation.

* Has a sifter so that I can estimate how much I'm going to use.
* Blends easily with my skin tone
* Medium to full coverage. It covers my sun spots really well.
* Buildable, but does not give u that cakey or makeupy (is this a word? Lol) finish
* It didn't break me out or irritate my skin.
* It's really light weight when applied.
* A little goes a long way in terms of concealing with this.

* It's not readily available in Jakarta. I have to pre order it from sellers on facebook and/or kaskus.
* To some people, it might sound kinda pricy. I just told my boyfriend how much this cost and he was like, "what?! just for that small tub??!". Well, he didn't know that I only used small amounts to get natural result.

I recommend using a concealer brush when applying this concealer because it might be a tad hard to blend when your using your fingers. Unlike cream concealers, which is really easy to blend using your fingers, powder concealers might fall off easily or even stick to your fingers. I use The Body Shop Lip/ Concealer Brush, which works perfectly with this concealer. I am still waiting on my ELF concealer brush because it's being pre ordered so, fingers crossed that it's like most reviews said. With that being said, I really like this concealer and gives it a 4 out of 5 stars. The one star left is the availability here in Jakarta *sigh* .

Always remember "What works for me might not work for you and vice versa".
