Physician's Formula Concealer Twins

This is a 2 in 1 correct and cover cream concealer.  I purchased mine from London Drugs for $11.99 for a 6.8g product.  My colour was yellow and light.  I don't know if they came in yellow and medium, as I haven't really seen it anywhere else.  I had picked this up the same time as the Gentle Concealer, just in case it didn't work.  I'm not as worried about the light brightening cream as I was about the concealer.

First impression, it's bright!  It went on really well, didn't clump like the other PF Concealer.  This could be because it's more liquid in format.  You only ever need to use a little bit.  It's always better to add than trying to remove.  I start with three small dots under the eye (make sure you prime!) and blend in an upside triangle pattern.  It highlights the entire area and draws attention away from the area you're trying to cover up.  It also just brightens the entire area.  It's hard to blend right up to the lower lash line but with patience, it can be done.  I did notice that because it was more of a liquid formula, it tended to accentuate the fine lines rather than hide them.  I was able to diminish that effect by using powder to set the concealer.  I found that since it was a more runny formula, it didn't cover as well.

Overall, I'm on the fence about this product.  It covered enough, didn't clump but it accentuated the fine lines.  The latter was bearable because I could fix the problem, but at the same time, I shouldn't have had to.  I'll keep using this until I find a good replacement!

  1. I have this same product and like you, I find that it settles into the fine lines under my eyes. I've discovered that blending with a sponge that's been spritzed with a setting spray really mitigates a lot of the creasing. Could be something to try!
