Athletes know the struggle is real… I don’t wear much on my skin beyond actual skincare products (which I layer on) – it won’t work for my lifestyle and I honestly don’t want to look like two different people between daytime, and when I get ready for bed. Natural is key for me, but so is staying power when I do need something.
Smashbox already has a 24-hour waterproof concealer – the 24 Hour Spot Concealer – so I’m not totally sure if this is replacing it or what (both are the same price, $25.) Studio Skin 24 Hour Concealer (you can also get it here) is the newest to the lineup and referred to as a “magic wand” by artists at the Smashbox L.A. studio. What a lot of people didn’t like about the Spot Concealer was the applicator – it often leaked when closing (though there are specific instructions about how to wipe the wand down) – so maybe this is a step up. Still, while the benefits seem close, housing aside, it doesn’t appear to be a replacement.
The product is designed to stay put, hide imperfections, and maintain a moisturizing effect that won’t settle into lines. It’s medium to full coverage, sweat, humidity, AND transfer resistant (hallelujah), oil free, and light diffusing – that’s quite a list of “bragging rights,” and one that anyone who is active – or dealing with summer – will appreciate. Thoughts on this guy?
