I'd be wary of that brand, most of their products are of the cheap repackaged "88 colour palette" type make-up, which is full of fillers and comparatively little pigment. I dont see why the concealer would be better, i wouldnt take the chance. There's loads of affordable, pro quality concealers out there, if you're on a tight budget the mini Dermacolour palettes are great and super cheap.

If you haven't seen it already, www.inmykit.com is an amazing resource and full of recommendations for pro quality products, many of which are more affordable than you'd expect. smile

+1 & this ^^^.

If you want a good quality concealer palette, check out Camera Ready Cosmetics. They also have an easily acquired pro discount program.

Here's a few links to some good concealer palettes.

SK-1 is the best option for this:

I own this & love it.

Amazingly pigmented & very little product goes a long way.

I know many rave about this

Go for quality over quantity always! You may spend a bit more now, but in the long run it is well worth it.

Welcome to MM.

Concealers have been talked about a lot here in HMS.
FAQ and Search has tons of reading.

So does the page on Concealers in "In My Kit" linked above.

I had an Eve Pearl wheel with salmon concealer for the longest time. Just recently started using OCC.

Do a search on BH or Costal Scents and you'll see the consensus is pretty unanimous on it's mediocrity.

I have the BH Cosmetics concealer palette in my professional kit. I use it and I like it. I have had no complaints from clients. However, I dont love it, it's not something that I would say is a staple in my MUA kit (Im acutally looking for a replacement). It was just something to start off with. I think the pigmentation is quite good. I like the coverage. Its nice and creamy. I dont like it for highlighting under the eyes, the nose, etc. And I also find that if I do want to highlight or contour with it, it would have to be OVER foundation. I know people who use concealer and apply foundation on top and you still have contour and highlight coming through. But with this, not so much. Not at all really. And the color range is not great at all honestly.

So all in all, it does the job, but Im going to try something different.

I purchased anyways just to try it. It sold me when I was watching this celebrity makeup artist used this palette on a model and I was like umm interesting. If you find a good conclear let me know!!!! Got to save that money to get the best makeup right!!! smile
