MEHRON CONCEALER WHEEL & VELVET PRIMER

COST: $10

STORE: IMATS LA SHOW

PROS:
Good for very dry skin
good price
generous amount of product

CONS:
Concealer is very shear
Primer is very oily
Primer doesn't keep the face matte
Makeup slides off your face


I bought these 2 Mehron products at IMATS in Pasadena this summer. I am very disappointed with both. I read mixed reviews on them & was on the fence to order them. When I saw them for $10 each at the show, I thought it was a great opportunity to give them a shot. wanted the
I was really excited about the concealer wheel because I need major help with my dark circles. They're not from lack of sleep, but the horrible allergies. The concealer was so shear that it covered nothing, it just enhanced the blue. It felt oily too.

The primer was no better. A little went a long way, but it was still so oily. I put it under my makeup & within an hour my face was oily & shiny. I tried both once & now they're gone.

I am still using the Tarte Primer, which is pretty good. The concealer I have yet to find. If I put anything with SPF near my eyes, they swell up. It's been really bad the last couple of weeks with the wind & fires in California.

Do you have any good concealers to recommend? Anything by Mac with no SPF that covers well?

Thanks for your review, I was debating on the Mehron concealer versus the Ben Nye conceal wheel, so I think I 'll get the Ben nye!

Wow, good to know these don't work. This would stop me from buying them if they come to IMATS Toronto. Thank you!

Try Amazing Cosmetics Amazing Concealer. It has gret coverage, you only need a little bit. It seems to work very well.
