It was no easy feat, I assure you. Concealer has always been tricky for me. I have tried low-end brands from the drugstore as well as higher end brands from department stores. Maybelline, L'oreal, Clinique, Prescriptives. And they were all ok, but not exactly the coverage or brightness that I was looking for. I used to own a brightening concealer pen from a brand called Pout that used to be available at Victoria's Secret and Sephora, but it got discontinued. I have a similar product from Prescriptives called "Site Unseen" but now Prescriptives is being discontinued as well. What is up with that anyway? Well I was about to give up on my endless quest to find a product that would sufficiently cover the bags under my eyes until I discovered this quad at Target from Sonia Kashuk:





It is called the hidden agenda concealer palette and I believe I paid around nine dollars for it (don't quote me on that). I like to use the shades on the left. The shade at the top matches my skin exactly, and the shade underneath that one has a bit of a greenish tinge to it, making it exceptional for covering red spots. The top right shade is pretty dark, so I haven't used it at all yet. The bottom right shade is actually a setting powder and it does so really well. I remember a few youtube gurus mentioning this product, but I thought it had been discontinued. I hope it never is! I plan on re-purchasing as many times as I need to. I just love the creamy consistency of these concealers. They are buildable and never cakey. Plus, you can easily customize your proper shade by combining colors. Of course, this is just my experience with this product, but I have been using it on a daily basis for over a month now. I firmly stand by my recommendation. It's a great find.

  1. your so lucky! I'm still searching. Concealer can be a bitch. Benefit is the best I've found so far.

  2. So glad that you finally found a concealer that works for you :) I've never really paid much attention to the Sonia Kashuk stuff at target, but I really want to check it out. I read on Makeup and Beauty Blog (i think..) that they have a really great bent eyeliner brush that I wanna try out!

  4. Thank you girls! Concealer is hard for everyone I guess! It really is one of those personal things...not universal.

  9. Good to know about this! I am always on the lookout for the perfect concealer! I am currently using Cinema Secrets, which is a similar concept--several different shades for better blending. Glad I found your blog, I really enjoy it! :)

  10. Do you use this as an undereye concealer, or just for blemishes? I'm on the hunt for a good undereye concealer that provides good coverage without being cakey and settling into creases!
