Claudia Louch Concealer Trio

Claudia Louch Concealer Trio* - £35

Long before I started wearing foundation I discovered the wonders of correcting & concealing. My mum used to have a massive influence on my makeup choices & I liked to poke about in her stash whilst she was getting ready. She always wore the Bobbi Brown Corrector & Concealer and I practically begged her to buy me some in my own shade. When you're young you really don't need a full face of foundation to look good & the transformative power of those products blew my teenage mind. These days I wear a lot more makeup than I used to but the whole correcting & concealing thing is something I still rely upon to make my base look flawless. In lieu of my trusty Bobbi Brown products I recently started using this little concealing palette from Claudia Louch & it gets a big thumbs up from me!

The Claudia Louch Concealer Trio features three different shades that you can custom mix to perfectly match your skin tone. The creamy consistency of these concealers enables them to blend seamlessly into the skin for undetectable wear. They provide full coverage with a matte finish making them ideal for covering all manner of skin problems. The formula is very lightweight yet feels hydrating on the skin due to the inclusion of castor oil & vitamin E. It's a great product to take out with you for touch-ups throughout the day as the concealers are best applied & blended using your fingers. Out of the three colours I find that I only really need two of them. The lightest shade is an excellent match for my pale skin so it works to cover any redness, scarring, blemishes & the dark circles underneath my eyes. The medium concealer is slightly more orange toned so I use this as the corrector shade. I apply this solely underneath my eyes to cancel out the blue tones of my dark circles & to brighten up the area. The two concealers layer up really well without looking cakey. However they definitely need setting with powder immediately after application or they will crease heavily. It's just something that comes with the territory of creamy concealers like this. The Claudia Louch Mineral Loose Powder fits the bill perfectly. If your skin is any darker than mine but still a Caucasian skin tone, you'll probably be able to get more use out of this palette with the lightest shade acting as a highlighting concealer rather than an exact skin match. Currently the trio only comes in one set of colours but I would hope that this is something Claudia Louch expands upon in future to suit those with darker skin as well.

The cosmetics available from Claudia Louch's Natural Skin Clinic are all supposed to work in harmony with the treatments & skincare products that she provides. Therefore this concealer is 94% natural, hypoallergenic, allergy-tested, non-comedogenic and free from fragrances & harsh chemicals. This increases it's compatibility with those who suffer from skin ailments such as acne or eczema. The creaminess allows the concealers to blend over any dry patches of skin that often come with those kinds of skin problems but it is still suitable for all skin types. At £35 it might seem like a pricey option, when in actual fact you get a whopping 10g of product and it works out a lot cheaper than buying a Bobbi Brown Corrector & Concealer set. It does it's job extremely well without irritating or clogging the skin so I have nothing but praise for this handy concealer trio.

  2. Thank you for sharing.

  3. I love the idea that you can mix them to get a perfect match to your skin tone, they also seem to have quite a yellow tone which would be good for dark circles too!
