Dark circles are a problem since my adolescent days and I have been struggling with it. From potato juice to cucumber to ice packs – I have left no stone unturned to cure them but every effort of mine went waste. Few months back I was reading various articles over the internet when I discovered that dryness is another cause for dark circles. After learning about cold pressed almond oil, I started applying it religiously every night. My under eye skin started feeling much hydrated and nourished. It has also reduced my dark circles a lot but not completely. Therefore, I was looking for a smooth concealer for my eye area. I discovered that Lakme Absolute range has a liquid concealer which looked promising to me. I choose the darkest of the color 05 honey as I needed it for the under eye area. Let's see how happy the concealer made me.

My Experience With Lakme Absolute Face Stylist Concealer 05 Honey:

The concealer comes in a small cylindrical transparent plastic bottle with a black screw cap and an applicator attached to it. It is enclosed in a small rectangular cardboard box. The applicator has a slanted sponge tip, very similar to a lip gloss. Initially, when I received the parcel, I was extremely taken aback with its size. I couldn't believe I have paid so much for such a tiny bottle. The consistency of the concealer is liquid and slightly runny.

You have to apply in dots on the concerned area and blend smoothly. I applied the concealer under my eyes in dots and by tapping gently blended the concealer. To my surprise, it actually blended very smoothly and gently without any harsh lines. The concealer doesn't settle into fine lines or wrinkles. It has a very faint smell of medicine but nothing unpleasant about it at all. The disappointing thing is that the concealer will only be able to give you light to medium coverage, no matter how much you layer it. My dark circles were only lightened and nothing else. The concealer after being blended settled into a hydrated matte finish without completely drying the skin. The staying power is about 5-6 hours without a primer underneath. Another thing I noticed is that the ingredient list was missing which was really disappointing from a brand like Lakme. Overall, the concealer is a pretty average one. It gives you a light to medium coverage with a semi-matte finish. With its results, I believe that the product is overpriced for the quality as well as quantity is concerned.

Pros Of Lakme Absolute Face Stylist Concealer 05 Honey:
  • Nice travel-friendly packaging.
  • Good applicator.
  • Light consistency.
  • Seamless blending.
  • Light to medium coverage.
  • Staying power is 5-6 hours.

Cons Of Lakme Absolute Face Stylist Concealer 05 Honey:
  • Coverage isn't impressive.
  • No ingredients list.
  • Overpriced for its quality.
  • Quantity is extremely less.

Final Note:

The concealer is an ordinary one with an extraordinary price tag. The only thing I like about this product is its liquid consistency which blends well, but the main job of concealing is average. Moreover, with such a small quantity, it is going to finish off in no time. I don't think I will be repurchasing it as I believe I can do well without it. I will only recommend it if you want a lightweight concealer with an average coverage and don't mind splurging for it.

  1. The price is too much compared to its performance.

    1. when I saw the size of the bottle, it broke my heart to realize I paid almost 1k for this! *headbang*

  2. The size definitely looks small. If the coverage isn't good no point in buying this!
