Some of us may be blessed with flawless skin and for others concealers exist. I will review Oriflame Studio Artist Concealer in the shade dark in this post. Few weeks ago, I had reviewed Oriflame studio artist foundation and this concealer is from the same range. It comes in 3 shades i.e. light, medium and dark. It is said that concealers should be a shade or two lighter than your foundations but concealers very light than your skin tone will give you reverse circles making flaws even more visible. Hence should be avoided. I have also reviewed the Oriflame perfecting face primer here.
I have liked this entire studio artist range which consists of gorgeous cream blushers, loose powders, compacts, foundation, lipsticks and concealers. Even price of this range is quite affordable.
Price- Oriflame Studio Artist Concealer is priced at 279 rupees for 10 ml
Ingredients- Aqua, Cyclopentasiloxane, Titanium Dioxide, Cyclohexasiloxane, Butylene Glycol, Cetyl Dimethicone, Cetyl Peg/Ppg-10/1 Dimethicone, Polyglyceryl-3 Oleate, Cera Alba, Phenyl Trimethicone, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Silica, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Sodium Chloride, Propylene Glycol, Methylparaben, Imidazolidinyl Urea, Propylparaben, Disodium Edta, Trimethoxycaprylylsilane, Alumina, Parfum, Triethoxycaprylylsilane, Camelia Sinensis Extract, Linalool, Phenoxyethanol, BHT
Experience- This Oriflame Concealer comes in a black cardboard case that bears all the details about this products like ingredients (which even I have listed for you above), claims, price etc. the actual product is in a tube with a nozzle. The tube hardly stands 4 inches tall but for the price it is decent.
Unlike the pot concealers, tubes are very easy to use. Consistency is quite okay for a concealer but I at times feel that it is runny. It can cover minor flaws but won’t be able to cover the heavy darkness under the eyes. When used for, to cover a blemish or zit then too, I find this okay since it is a bit runny due to which chances are that it will take efforts to keep it in place and setting with a translucent or loose powder becomes must.
For the price, I can’t really pin point lot of flaws in this since keeping in mind its price, it’s a good budget buy. It is available in three shades, light medium and dark as I said. The shade dark is my skin tone and matches it quite well, I picked it up as I wanted the concealer to be the same shade as my complexion as I wanted to use that for the puffiness under the eyes that can be treated well with a shade darker or the same shade, the regular 2-3 shades lighter concealers can accentuate the puffiness and are meant more for covering the dark circles.
For bluish/purplish dark circles you can try orange concealers/correctors before using this. Orange corrector works well to neutralize the purple/blue hues under the eyes providing a neutral base for these regular concealers to do their job better without making the under eye area ashy or grey!
It doesn’t crease as much which is a good thing about this concealer.
Summing up all the points.

Take: Oriflame Studio Artist Concealer is a decent concealer that can be tried if you’re a beginners and don’t need too much coverage or concealing. For minor dark circles or blemishes , it can act well though don’t expect much from it!
