My experiences

Upside:

  • I love the slim packaging it looks really nice.
  • The formulation is very watery, it blends well.
  • It’s easy to apply.
  • It doesn’t feel drying which I really appreciate.
  • It settles within 30 seconds, so work in parts!
  • It does not clump or ball up when layered.
  • When it’s dry, it’s dry. I can touch it, I can rub on it and it isn’t going anywhere.
  • It took two layers (two dips) to cover the veins and acne marks on my whole cheek without it getting cakey or creasing or clumping and I personally love that.
  • I love the finish because it doesn’t look dry, it doesn’t look too shiny, but it makes me look alive and not on the verge of passing out lol.
  • Great oil control. After 6 hours or so before it shows signs of shine on the T-zone.

Neutral Ground:

  • I am partial to the packaging as there is not much room for air to wiggle out and it becomes messy really fast.
  • It does not settle on fine lines but it makes it look visible specially the smile lines.

Downside:

  • There are only 4 shades to choose from. And as a girl with a very strong yellow undertone I am sad about this.
  • It took 3 layers to cover my angry red pimple on my chin.
  • It does not cover the large pores. It skips it.

 

Althea Flawless Creamy Concealer Swatch

USAGE:
Use on parts that needs concealing like blemishes.

APPLICATION:
I swipe it on the larger areas and then blend in with a damp sponge or a cushion puff.

TIPS:

  1. Exfoliate to lessen bumps on your skin.
  2. Work on parts and work fast. This concealer settles within seconds.
  3. Use a pore filling primer because it skips those.
  4. Layer small amounts so you won’t look cakey.
  5. If it is lighter for your skin tone try using it as a highlighting product under the eyes, forehead, chin and nose.
