Gucci Magnificence launched a brand new concealer referred to as the Concentre de Beaute Multi-Use Longwear Concealer ($47 every). I actually love the brand new system it and did a demo on my Instagram in partnership with Sephora. Loads of you had questions in regards to the system and shade choice so I needed to assessment it in additional element and embrace an up to date roundup of their base merchandise.
Multi-Use Longwear Concealer
The brand new Gucci Multi-Use Longwear Concealer is a medium protection concealer with a light-weight texture and pure end. It has sufficient pigment to cowl my freckles and even out the under-eye space however nonetheless appears to be like like pores and skin (simply higher). I actually like the wear and tear and the way it units If you happen to watch my video right here you’ll see the way it blends in seamlessly to seem like pores and skin. I utilized it with the Fenty Concealer Brush which I just lately purchased and love.
The brand new concealer is available in big selection of shades with completely different undertones. In accordance with their shade breakdown:
- C is for cool – pores and skin hardly ever tans, with pink hues
- N is for impartial – pores and skin tans typically, with each pink and golden hues
- W is for heat – pores and skin tans simply, with yellow or golden hues
For a shade match I discovered Shade 34N to be my finest match underneath the eyes. It’s impartial, medium and simply the slightest bit lighter than my pores and skin, however very shut. I often want concealers near my pores and skin tone somewhat than having one thing 2-3 shades lighter for underneath eyes.
I ended up ordering a number of colours, primarily as a result of I needed to attempt them and in addition swatch them for many who are my pores and skin twins. I did attempt all six and my first decide 34N ended up being one of the best. I additionally actually like 28C or 31W for brightening. 35W also can work as a precise match for spot concealing.
A few of the W shades pull extra yellow/olive than others. 32W pulls very yellow whereas 31W and 35W each pull extra golden/impartial. Out of the two C undertone shades they appear persistently pink in undertone. I solely tried one of many N neutrals so I’m unsure how the opposite impartial shades run, however 34N is certainly very impartial.
Carrying 34N under with their Glow Care Shine Lipstick in Sally Delicate Honey.
Concealer is unscented and lasting energy is fairly spectacular. It didn’t crease or cake and I like that it units by itself fairly nicely. The feel/pigment is just like the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer with a barely extra matte dry down. If you happen to want one thing extra creamy and opaque this one could also be too sheer for you through which case I’d suggest the Natasha Denona Hy-Glam, Givenchy or Tarte Form Tape Radiant.
Swatches in comparison with:
Luminous Matte Basis
Gucci has launched a number of basis formulation lately and the present system obtainable now’s the Luminous Matte End Basis ($69). My finest match is 305N though it runs only a tiny bit gentle in shade. I could make it work because it adjusts/oxidizes simply barely.
The subsequent shade up is 310N and there’s a fairly massive hole (appears to be like like a minimum of 3 shades darker). This basis has among the finest matte finishes I’ve tried. I usually don’t like matte foundations as a result of they usually really feel too thick and look flat. This one nonetheless has a very nice end and nice lasting energy. I might put on this yet one more usually if I had a precise shade match. I alter this one with one by mixing in one of many Elf Halo Glow Filters (often Shade 5 or 7).
It’s floral scented which could be a deal breaker for these delicate to perfume in basis. Fortunately it didn’t irritate my pores and skin. Earlier than/afters under, additionally sporting the Gucci Satin Lipstick in The Painted Veil and Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Speak Goals Eyeshadow Palette.
Matte Magnificence Powder
Gucci’s Matte Magnificence Powder is cased in one of many prettiest compacts I’ve ever seen. There’s a compartment for a puff which I like. It’s described as “matte” however there are literally some shimmer particles in it however as soon as utilized on the face the shimmer isn’t actually seen on the pores and skin. I put on Shade 4 (appears to be discontinued now) or Shade 5.
It’s a pleasant powder however there are a couple of downsides. One is that is closely fragranced. It’s not disagreeable however I discover it on the robust aspect. The opposite is that it’s susceptible to hard-pan however this occurs when there’s oil in your powder brush whether or not it’s oil from touching your face or moisturizer residue and even your fingers.
I’ve managed to maintain mine clear however I’m actually cautious with what brushes I exploit. I’m just a little OCD about having clear brushes and am continuously washing them so I virtually all the time have a clear powder brush after I use this. General good and performs nicely, but it surely’s not my favourite. I’ve used a couple of compacts up completely and simply purchased a recent one. I prefer it, however I believe there are higher formulation on the market.
Brume de Beaute Mist
The Gucci Magnificence Face Mist is one other nice product. It’s a multi-tasking product you need to use to prep the pores and skin or set your make-up. It’s a bi-phase system with Black Rose Oil and hyaluronic acid. The highest dispenses an excellent high quality mist and feels tremendous refreshing on the pores and skin. I believe it makes for a very nice luxurious splurge, but it surely does have a floral scent to it. If perfume is a no-go for you I believe the MAC Repair+ or Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Setting Sprays are nice choices.
Multi-Use Illuminating Drops
Final however not least is one other take a look at their Illuminateur de Beaute Multi-Use Drops. This is among the prettiest liquid highlighters I’ve tried. It’s glowy with the proper quantity of pigment & glow for me. The colour is a peachy champagne which I actually love for medium/tan pores and skin however I believe it should work for any pores and skin tone.
Store the Publish
That wraps up my Gucci Magnificence Concealer assessment! If you happen to’re across the identical pores and skin tone as me I hope you discovered the swatches useful!
