Product Review -- bh cosmetics Studio Pro Total Coverage Concealer

Several years back, I bought a brush set from bh cosmetics.

The main selling point for me was the adorable polka dotted handles, but the brushes themselves turned out to be quite nice. They have shorter handles, so I use them mainly for travel but they've come in quite handy over the years.

Yet, despite that pretty positive experience with bh cosmetics, I never purchased any actual makeup from the brand. I had it in my head that they just sold those 88 shimmer eyeshadow palettes and the like that you can get from a bunch of websites, so I never really felt the need.

 In recent months, though, I've bought quite a few items from the brand, and I've been pretty happy with everything I've tried.

Case in point: the Studio Pro Total Coverage Concealer.

Sure, I need another concealer like I need a hole in the head, but I couldn't help myself.  Just as with foundations, I'm always game to try a new concealer.

The Studio Pro Total Coverage Concealer comes in a plastic squeeze tube that contains almost a half ounce of product. The end of the tube has a slant-tip applicator that you could use to swipe the concealer onto your face, but I find that too much product usually comes out, so I usually squeeze as small an amount as I can and use a finger or brush to apply it to my skin.

The concealer itself has a fairly thick consistency, but it's still slightly liquid-y so it blends into the skin very easily. It dries down, though, so I don't find that it moves around much on the skin. I do still set it under my eyes with some type of setting power, but I don't necessarily feel the need to set it on other areas of my face (though now that it's summer, I have been setting it everywhere because my skin gets more oily and I tend to sweat ... a lot), and I haven't experienced any creasing.

I wouldn't say the finish is completely matte, but it's not dewy either, so I feel like it would work for most skin types. I don't know if it's just the shade that I bought -- the lightest, 100 Fair -- but I find that it looks very brightening under the eyes, and yet it blends just as seamlessly into the skin on other areas of the face, making it a true multi-tasking concealer.

The concealer provides medium to full coverage, so it can cover most imperfections, including dark circles, age spots, and acne. I find that it lasts a good six to eight hours, even when I don't set it, so it's pretty long-wearing.

The lightest shade, 100 Fair, is a pretty good match for my skin, despite the fact that bh cosmetics website describes it as fair with warm undertones and my skin leans neutral/cool. The lines has 21 shades, though four are color correctors, so I feel like bh cosmetics needs to add a few more shades toward the darker end of the spectrum.

That said, if they have a shade that would work for you, I wholeheartedly recommend it. It's a great concealer and retails for just $5.99 full price -- and since bh cosmetics runs sales pretty frequently, you can definitely get it cheaper than that if you time it right.

It's available on the bh cosmetics website.

Have you tried the bh cosmetics Studio Pro Total Coverage Concealer? Are you a fan? What's the best concealer you've tried recently?
