Review: Ben Nye Cover All Concealer Wheel


Ben Nye Cover All Concealer wheel in SK-1

Product Info from Ben Nye:
Four classic neutralizing shades are included in this best-selling Wheel.
Mutes redness, veins, tattoos, beard shadows and skin discolorations.


RETAIL PRICE: Php 690.00 at www.thestylequarter.multiply.com

WEIGHT: 14 grams. Expect 40-150 applications.

SHADES: MY-2, MO-2, CC-3, FS-3


PROS:
* inexpensive
* pigmented, you only need a small amount of product to cover imperfections.
* very creamy texture (love, love!) similar to the Blue Neutralizer.
* easy to work with, I don't have a hard time blending it (no tugging) especially on the undereye area.
* lasts the whole day (when set well with powder)! No retouching needed!
* the 4 shades can be used alone, mixed together or worn under other concealers.


CONS:
* has the tendency to cake if not blended or set properly.


TIPS:
When set with Ben Nye's Banana Visage Poudre or their Neutral set loose powder, this concealer does not budge the whole day.
Note: I have normal skin with slightly oily t-zone.

I RECOMMEND THIS TO:
The first time I've tried Ben Nye's Blue Neutralizer I was really impressed with the coverage, texture and staying power. The same goes to this Cover All Concealer wheel, I highly recommend this if you're looking for an inexpensive all around corrector/concealer for the face and body.

OVERALL:
A staple in my makeup kit coz I can use it to camouflage everything. What I also love about Ben Nye products is that I'm hiyang with it and it doesn't irritate my face even if I use it everyday.

Ingredients list

Description from Ben Nye site:
Mellow Yellow (MY): Cover redness, three intensely pigmented shades are in this group, has a smooth consistency to neutralize and cover redness, blemishes, scars and capillaries.

Mellow Orange (MO): Neutralize blue-green face and body imperfections including veins, tattoos, bruises and deep under-eye discolorations.

Coverette Cover-Up (CC): Often recommended by doctors and "Camouflage artists" to cover scar tissue, birthmarks, vitiligo and post-op skin discoloration. Blends easily to most skin tones.

Five O'Sharp Series (FS): Conceal blue beard shadows with this series of four specialty cover-ups. May be applied beneath or over foundation tone. Very effective in concealing deep discolorations, including black eyes or intense under-eye discoloration.

Swatches

If my dark circles are really bad (blame it on my sinusitis and lack of zzzz's) I use MO-2 to neutralize the purplish tone of my undereye circles then top it off with liquid concealer. I sometimes use MY-2 on top to of MO-2 to brighten.

LinkMy Ben Nye Haul from The Style Quarter.
I got 2 bottles of the Banana Visage Poudre as back-ups. These are sold for Php 520.00 (45 grams) each.

Wow! its super pigmented indeed! Thanks for sharing the swatches, I'm in search of a nice corrective wheel and your review seems pretty convincing..I think I'll go ahead and try this out...Also, do you have any recommendation with regards to a nice green concealer that targets on minimizing red spots/acnes...I can't seem to find a perfect/nice green concealer that really tame down the redness and at the same time conceal them..Any suggestions..thanks much...=)
