After reading great reviews about the pigmentation of this concealer I decided to pick it up during a sale on Hautelook when it was 50% off. I got the shade of Mid Medium, which was the appropriate shade for me but I do find it a tad bit ashy. It doesn’t have enough orange in it to be good for concealing undereye circles so I have to use it in conjunction with my Vasanti Wonders of the World Under Eye & Blemish Concealerhere. As you can see below, they work well together to correct and conceal.
The consistency of the Time Balm concealer is creamy but on the dry side. I either apply it with my Real Techniques deluxe crease brush when I use it in conjunction with another product which is more creamy, or with my ring finger when I use it alone. Using it with my finger softens the product with the heat of my finger making it easier to apply and blend into my foundation.
∗ Good pigmentation
∗ Comes in 6 shades
∗ Available at a number of places
∗ A bit pricey in comparison to drug store prices
∗ Darker shades are ashy and need to be used with an orange concealer
∗ Creases badly, which is minimized by setting it with powder
Overall this is a highly pigmented concealer and is a good product. I don’t know if I would purchase this again only because I primarily use it as an under eye concealer. It is better used as a face concealer since it creases and doesn’t conceal dark circles without leaving the skin ashy looking.
OVERALL: 4 out of 5
RECOMMEND: Yes but only as a face concealer (not undereye concealer)
