Edward Bess Platinum Concealer (Soft Beige)







I'm very much a liquid/cream concealer fan. My skin can get very dry very fast, so I'm wary of textures that might cake, flake or look scaly, especially if I'm already trying to hide something. But I trust Edward Bess with my face and was happy to discover his Platinum Concealer that only comes in a solid stick formula is actually creamy, easy to blend and very dry skin-friendly.

I apply Platinum Concealer with various brushes- from a precision point concealer brush to flat ones for wider areas and even a foundation brush when using it under my eyes. The Edward Bess formula gives excellent coverage while melting seamlessly into any foundation or tinted moisturizer and allowing for easy blending. It never makes my skin look dry and doesn't flake.

Soft Beige is one of four available colors. It was easy to pick it as the right shade for me- it has just enough yellow and no muddy or ruddy tones. I used quite a bit of product for the photos, but in normal use you only need a tiny amount-it gives an excellent coverage with a very natural look, so that's another huge advantage of this Edward Bess concealer.


Note to self: Venture out of your comfort zone more often.

Edward Bess Platinum Concealer ($38) is available at Bergdorf Goodman, select Neiman Marcus location (as well as online) and edwardbess.com

  1. I am beyond excited to read your review--I'm currently using Cle de Peau's stick but would love to find an alternative. Do you (or any of your readers) think EB's is comparable/different from CdP's? Any and all thoughts appreciated! :)

  6. The kitties look gorgeous! The concealer doesn't look too bad either. :-) Happy to hear it works on dry skin!

  7. This has nothing to do with concealer but rather the beautifully androgynous Edward Bess himself. With all due respect to Tilda Swinton as a fine actress and muse a truly innovative perfume, Edward Bess is the very image of Orlando as I imagined him/her when I read Virginia Woolf's book decades ago! ~~nozknoz
