One of my beauty icons, Drew Barrymore, was recently asked what product she'd take to the desert island. To which she said, "My concealer, or you can just kill me now." A bit dramatic, but I couldn't agree more — although I would probably try to shove a tube of mascara in my bra or something...
Anyway, I get a lot of requests from readers for my favorite concealer, and I've always recommended Clinique Redness Solutions Targeted Corrector or Bobbi Brown Face Touch Up Stick, but I recently got my hands on Dermablend Quick-Fix, and there's no turning back.
This concealer really, truly makes all those pesky skin flaws disappear. I've been using it on everything from zits to sunspots to acne scars, and even ugly mosquito bites. (Not-so-fun fact: I am extra allergic to mosquito bites and they leave dark red welts on my skin...it isn't cute.)
I've also tested it on under-eye circles ,and it makes you look like you didn't stay out all night making bad decisions. And, since the stick is a bit thicker than your usual concealer, it covers more ground faster. Plus, the lightweight formula doesn't feel like I'm caking over a problem but just making it magically disappear.
Overall, the application is smooth, coverage buildable, and it's long-lasting — perfect for a desert island choice or your regular Monday.
