ELF Tone Correcting Concealer Review

Hey again!

Today's review is on the ELF Tone Correcting Concealer from their professional line! Everything in the ELF professional line costs $1 and this is one of the things I happen to come across at my Target.

Elf Tone Correcting Concealer in Spice:

*Sorry for the faded lettering. I have been using this a while :)

The first thing I noticed when you open unscrew the cap and pull out the applicator is the smell. The smell is strong and floral. I mean VERY strong and floral. Why a concealer needs to be scented? No idea.

As for the concealing aspect this concealer I seem to be having a love hate relationship. They should have named it tone corrector, not tone correcting CONCEALER. I would not say this is opaque enough to be a concealer, but when put it around the nose/mouth area and it does a good job of getting rid of minor discoloration and redness.

The hate part is that I wanted this to be more concealer like. As of late I use this to cover my mild dark circles, it's not cakey, but it does not cover blemishes. When put on a blemish it really does nothing.

One last thing I have to say is if you have dry skin this might be what your looking for. This is very 'moisturizing' if that's the word i'm looking for, though some people describe this as oily which is really up to you...

I'm not sure that I like the ingredients. I have been hearing lately that parabens are really bad for you. It also has Mineral oil which is pore clogging (not best for blemishes and sensitive skin people)

Aqua(Water), Paraffinium Liquidum (Mineral Oil), Octyl Palmitate, Petrolatum, Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Ceresin Wax, PEG-30, Dipolyhydroxystearate, Mica, Microcrystalline Wax, Propylene Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Silica, Ascorbyl Palmitate , Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Iron Oxides(CI 77891 , CI 77892 , CI 77899)

UPDATE: This is currently the concealer I use for under my eyes. I think it works great as an eye brightener. I like the more that the undertones suit my yellowy skin. I find that I get best results from using my fingers. Its also a great natural highlighting concealer for that area :) MUST be set with powder or will be gone off your face in no time.


Hope this helps :)

  1. Great review! I just bought this and I love it for my under eye area. Ur right it does nothing to cover blemishes. Try smoothing it out with ur finger then patting it in.


Comments make my day <3
