Hey all beauty geeks!!!Â Like everybody else, I have a dream of having a perfect and flawless skin. But, my pigmentation is such an obstacle that I am never able to achieve that dream complexion. 🙁 This has put me on a quest for a maximum coverage foundation and concealer. Finally, I have almost-perfect foundation for my skin tone. But the quest for a perfect concealer lingers on. I am always on a lookout for a good coverage concealer. This is the reason why I picked up a Physicians Formula‘s concealer while purchasing a pressed powder from the same line. Had to buy one item, came home with two – always my story 🙂

My take on Physicians Formula Conceal Rx Physicians Strength Concealer :
Physicians Formula Conceal Rx Physicians Strength Concealer is available in two shades – Fair Light and Natural Light. There is one available in Soft Green as well, but that is mainly a corrector for redness on the skin. The packaging of the tube is opaque and you can’t figure out the exact color of the concealer. I picked the darkest of the two – Natural Light. The color selection is really bad as far as Physicians Formula face cosmetics are concerned. They really need to have darker color as well at least we could mix and match to get the perfect shade. 🙁
Packaging: The packaging is like a regular concealer – a tube with a thin nozzle to dispense the product.
Texture: The concealer is very thick and has a very tacky and sticky consistency. However, it blends very smoothly.
Pigmentation: The pigmentation is really amazing. It is very thick and covers blemishes, scars and also my pigmentation to a certain extent. It is buildable and can be layered without being cakey. It can also conceal dark under-eye circles, but it does settle into fine lines. But this is expected of a thick concealer. HOWEVER, the shade was too light for me and did stand out against the rest of my foundation. I even tried it wearing under my foundation, but the light patches were still visible.
Staying Power: It does last long, though not tried for 12 hours as the company claims.
What I like about Physicians Formula Conceal Rx Physicians Strength Concealer :
- Maximum coverage.
- Blends well.
- Does not look cakey.
- Can be layered for more coverage.
- Natural and matte finish.
- Does not feel heavy on the skin.
- Stays for long without any touch-ups.
- Stays locked if set with a powder.
- Can be used as an eyeshadow primer.
What I do not love about Physicians Formula Conceal Rx Physicians Strength Concealer:
- If used for concealing under-eye circles, emphasizes wrinkles and fine lines.
- Too light for my skin.
- May suit only pale and fair skin tones.
- Unable to figure out the color of the concealer due to the packaging.
- Unavailability in India.
How I wish, I had the option to pick a darker color to match my skin tone. I don’t prefer a lighter concealer as it makes the flaws more prominent. However, it is a dream-come-true concealer for anybody with lighter or pale skin tones. Grab it!!!
