Cover and Conceal Wand by Makeup Academy (MUA) - Review & Swatch

A makeup look can never look flawless if you have dark circles and imperfection peaking through the gorgeousness you have applied on your face and to fight those monsters, a concealer can become your best friend.

Cover and Conceal Wand:
They say; 'Conceal imperfections, under-eye circles, spots on the face with this concealer wand. The creamy lightweight texture which blends in to create that flawless finish with a natural coverage that lasts all day.'

Product Description & Packaging:
Cover and Conceal Wand comes in a plastic tube and the wand has a brush applicator. The formula has a liquid to cream consistency making it easy to blend into the skin. It comes in three shades and contains 7.5 ml of product. The shade I am using is Natural; it has no undertone.

Overall Experience:
A good concealer should always give good coverage without creasing or caking up throughout the day. My experience with MUA's concealer has been good but I would not say that they are good enough when you need a HD makeup finish.

This wand concealer is perfect when you don't have too much dark circles / spots. It gives sheer to medium coverage and is build-able to some extent but not to achieve full coverage. You can see the results in my recent makeup look; it gave me medium coverage and you can still see some skin tone underneath right under inner corners of the eye.

Application is pretty easy and I usually blend it with my finger or a fluffy brush. To even out my skin, I go with one layer but to get medium coverage, I go with two layers and then set it with light touch of powder with a fluffy brush. It does not crease on me at all throughout the day and stays put as well.

Tips: 
- After applying the first layer, always give your concealer a few seconds to one minute to completely dry and set into your skin otherwise, you will only rub it which will cause streaking and later on, creasing.
- To achieve a flawless finish and to avoid the harsh line under your waterline; always blend the concealer with a fluffy brush. My current favorite brushes to apply products under my eyes are; E40 Tapered Blending Brush by Sigma and Base Shadow Brush (comes in Starter Set) by Real Techniques.   

As for the imperfections; yes it gives a good coverage and evens out any redness or light spots but don't expect it to spot conceal any dark spots and heavy discolorations. Also, I did not notice any oxidization with this concealer as mostly I use it without a primer and at this point I would say that it is one of the concealers that does not crease under my eyes without an eye primer. Thumbs up for that!

Overall, I am loving this concealer and how it becomes skin-like once it is dried.. However, MUA claims for it to give a flawless and natural looking finish; it surely gives a natural looking finish but it does not hide all the flaws.
