Review : Cover Fx Conceal FX Concealer

Review time again:)

I picked up a sample of this concealer in '' light'' a week ago (they had only the light one left, but I still wanted to try it) & I don’t know where to start. Maybe with DON’T BUY THIS GUYS :S. This concealer is so wrong on so many levels! First of all, what stands out the most is the hideous smell. Usually, I don't freak out when something smells a bit different, I'm not that type of person, but this smell, I just couldn't stand it. I don't know what kind of smell is going on here, but it STINKS LIKE HELL. It smells like something herbal, chemical and disgusting. HATE IT. Then, there is the color that, at first, is really OFF. It's freaking ORANGE.

When I saw the color, I felt like running away. YOU'RE GOING TO TELL ME THAT THIS IS LIGHT ? ... But, I decided to read some reviews instead, and some people said that you need to continue to rub and eventually It will lighten up. That's what I did. It didnt get any better. Look:

Yes, the freaking color is still orange, but now it's more of a pinky orange. I don't know... It Did get lighter though, eventually after rubbing and rubbing :), but still, I'm not looking for a pinky concealer!! HELLO! They say that it's perfect for yellow skin tones. Ehmmm. NO, Not at all. There's a line between pink and yellow.

However, there are some positive aspects to this product. It blends easily and it doesn't set into fine lines. It dries into a matte finish and the skin feels soft afterward. And it has good coverage, BUT THAT DAMN SMELL STAYS ON. Who does that? Who wants their concealers to stink? AGHH! DO SOMETHING COVER FX!

I don't know guys, but if I was you, I wouldn't spend 30$ on an orange concealer. Buy Bobbi Brown instead ! It's even cheaper. Maybe it's just this particular color ? I'll definitely try the other ones. Thank God, It was only a sample. If in any case you are interested in this product, you can find it at Sephora or Shopper's Drug Mart :)

Anyways, I wanted to know if some of you have tried this concealer? Did it work for you? How on earth can you live with the smell ?

XOXO,A.

God, that orange color is awful.
I bought the FX concealer in X-light and it works very well.It might smell a bit when I put it on, but then the smell just seems to go away.I can't say that it STINKS LIKE HELL haha. I tried in ''light'' and it is actually much darker and ''oranger'' than the X-light one, not comparable.Also, I get a very nice coverage and a good finish by using a cheap foundation brush and by blending it softely with a cheap w-m sponge :P
Unfortunately, I think that the FX concealer in X-light is too pale for your tan, maybe FX just doesn't produce something that suits your palette -_-. Work it with that Bobbi Brown thing :)

P.S. Did you ever tried the Lise watier concealers? I heard lots of good stuff about it .
