How are you doing ? I hate summers but I love how it transforms Delhi . Delhi becomes a riot of colors .You can see splashes of orange and bright reds on flame of the forrest trees and swaying bunches of fuchsia flowers on bougainvillea shrubs .This is the time all the gauzy mul-mul Kurtas come out of the closet .This is also the time when one feels like adding a splash of colour to the mostly muted look .So I sometimes add a bright lip tint or a a bright accessory like a watch .
This is also the time when tanning and acne add to the skin woes so wearing a loose powder and a concealer for the face helps in giving a neat and flawless finish .

Therefore today I shall review a concealer that I have tried .Read on to see how it fared on my rate-o-meter .
Price–Rs 900 for 3.5 gms
Availabilty –Easily available ,currently the shade Fair 01 is available on discount at Purrple.com ,here.
Packing – It comes in a simple ,sturdy ,transparent plastic tube with an applicator brush , I love how small and cute it is .The shade is clearly mentioned on the bottle.
How to apply –The Sales assistant at the Lakme counter told me to apply it after using the foundation or BB cream as this is in liquid form and so should be applied last .It has to be applied in dots and then patted gently .The warmth of the fingertips helps the product to spread evenly .
|the consistency of the concealer
1. Light to medium coverage provided so good for light acne scars and pigmentation .
2. Little quantity is enough .
3. Sturdy and small bottle .
4. Blending is easy .The product does not feel heavy or cakey .
5. Available in three shades–Fair , Medium and Honey .
6. Gives matte finish .
|After blending completely on hand
1.The price of Rs 900 for 3.5 gms is somewhat high .
2. Does not give buildable coverage , can only conceal lightly .
3. Available in only three shades–Fair , Medium and Honey .

|After blending the dots, you can compare
with the upper area where no concealer has been applied
TheFinal Verdict –I would rate it 3.5 /5 , Minus points for the price and coverage provided .
To sum it up , It gives excellent coverage for girls who need light coverage (as when needed to cover a few spots or slight pigmentation) .It has a lightweight feel and is good for summers and day make-up .Girls who need heavier coverage( that is with darker pigmentation or very dark under eye circles )should give it a miss and opt for other heavy duty concealers
