I have spoken before on my blog about my very pink toned skin and the redness I have, I have a very pink/red tone to my skin but also suffer from redness on my cheeks where I have broken capillaries and generally flush, I also have redness around my nose and in recent months I have been suffering with blemishes and scarring. I only started wearing blush a few years ago because I was so self conscious of my pink/red toned skin and the redness in my cheeks, so when I received the Re Cover Correct & Conceal Red I was really excited to try it, I have been using it for a couple of weeks now and wanted to share my thoughts with you.
The founder of Re Cover is the makeup artist Annabel Jardella, a professional makeup artist for 25 years working on films such as Evita, Gladiator and Sense & Sensibility, plus teaching at the renowned Delemar Academy, Annabel is a seasoned expert when it comes to make up application and she has put her 25 years of makeup artist experience into her new range of products. The launch product, Re Cover Correct & Conceal Red, has been developed with the colour theory that makeup artists use to correct facial redness, specially selected yellow based pigments neutralise any red tones in the skin, without draining the natural colour from your face.
Re Cover Correct & Conceal Red is available in six shades, 0 - Very Light, 1 - Light, 2 - Fair, 3- Beige, 4 - Mid Tan and 5 - Deep Tan, I have the shade 1- Light.
The packaging of the Re Cover Correct & Conceal Red is a grey with gold writing and a smoky grey transparent lid, I like the packaging and think it looks classy and is nice and compact for popping in my makeup bag and would be ideal for travelling. The packaging has a pump action and the product is dispensed via the 23k gold plated applicator that has been designed for ease of application and hygiene as the applicator can be wiped clean unlike the brush type applicators we often see on concealing products, I really like the applicator it feels lovely and soothing on the skin and allows me to apply the concealer effortlessly and precisely.
The concealer has a full coverage but a nice light consistency and blends beautifully onto the skin, I apply it with the applicator and then use my Beauty Blender to blend onto the skin. The coverage is fantastic and my redness is completely covered but I don't feel like I am wearing any product, it is a lovely light feeling concealer that covers extremely well, leaving a flawless finish that doesn't feel or look caked. The concealer can be used under foundation to cover areas of redness including scarring, rosacea, naturally red skin, flushes and broken capillaries or you can apply it all over the face for a light flawless base.
The first time I used the concealer I took a before and after photograph and you can see how well the concealer covers without looking cakey.
Before and after using the Re Cover Correct & Conceal Red
In the photographs above I have used the concealer on my cheeks, my chin and around my nose, I also applied it to my forehead where I had some blemishes and scarring from old blemishes which were also red. I didn't apply the concealer to my under eye as yellow toned concealers do not counter act blue/purple tones, when I applied the rest of my makeup I used my under eye corrector for my dark circles. As you can see, the concealer has done a brilliant job of correcting the redness on my face without looking caked on.
Finished makeup application
My foundation applies beautifully over the top of the concealer and the concealer does not move around underneath the foundation, once it has been applied and blended onto the skin it does not move all day. The first time I used the concealer I was having a bad day health wise and my skin was also extremely dry, I'm not sure if the photograph above will pick it up well but my foundation looked flawless where I had applied the concealer to my redness but clung to my dry skin where I hadn't used it, so it clearly provided a lovely flawless base for my makeup and I wished I'd used it all over my face!
A swatch of the Re Cover Correct & Conceal Red in 1 - Light
I have have been using the concealer for the last couple of weeks now and have used it underneath my foundation to cover redness and also used it as a light base all over my face, both applications look lovely and provide a flawless finish to my skin, my skin looks smooth and even and the redness is completely covered, the concealer is wonderful on my dry skin and doesn't cling to any dryness or settle into any fine lines I have, the concealer sets perfectly, doesn't transfer and stays in place all day.
I am really pleased with the Re Cover Correct & Conceal Red and would highly recommend it if you suffer from any form of redness, it does exactly what it promises and is a fantastic product. You can purchase the Re Cover Correct & Conceal Red from the Re Cover website HERE for £28.00 for 5ml.
I cannot wait for the launch of the Correct & Conceal Under Eye in Autumn 2016, if it is as good as the concealer, it will be a fabulous product.
