After seeing my favorite beauty guru Lisa Eldrige use this in many of her makeup tutorials, I had to go and try this for myself. This concealer and highlighter in one comes in three shades-- fair, neutral fair, and medium. I tried medium and luckily, it was a perfect match.
The color of 02 medium is a yellowish-peach concealer. I like my undereye concealers to have pink undertones because I think it really brightens my eyes.
This concealer comes in a pen with a brush for application, which may not seem the most hygenic when applying straight from the pen. For those germ-conscious beauties, I suggest first washing your hands and then applying a blob to the back of your hand for application. For those who are really germaphobic, you can always rub hand sanitizer to your hands, let them dry, and then apply product to the back of your hand for application.
The consistency of this concealer is very thin which I like because it makes it easier for me to blend. This product dries fast which requires me to work quickly, but once it sets, it stays put. I like to test out new products at work because 12-hrs in an air-conditioned environment where I'm moving around a lot allows me to filter which products last for me or not. After 8 hours, I still looked fresh with minimal fading and no creasing or settling into fine lines.
Bottom line: Because this product only comes in 3 shades, it is limited to its reach. However, if you happen to match one of the three colors (fair, neutral fair, medium), you may have found your one-stop-shop for brightening and concealing. Good morning sunshine!
This product retails for $19.50 and can be found at any Clinque counter. Don't forget to follow my site or subscribe for more posts. :)

I followed Lisa Eldrige's advice and applied this to shadows around my nose and mouth.
