Eve Pearl Dual Salmon Concealer (Light/Medium)




Eve Pearl's Salmon Concealer enjoys a cult-favorite status in the makeup industry. Between the soft creamy texture and pinky-peach shades that were made to counter under-eye darkness, it is definitely an versatile product worth of our attention.

I was interested in the Dual Salmon Concealer because it allows you to mix and customize your shade. The Eve Pearl rep matched me to Light/Medium, which seems about right. I use various ratios of the orange and the light peach according to the level of death-face I see in the mirror. Eve Pearl's concealer is extremely soft and pliable, and can be sheered to almost nothing, which is what thin under-eye skin likes best. The formula contains good-for-you ingredients that are meant to moisturize and protect, resulting in a lightweight texture that doesn't cake.

I should be completely in love with Eve Pearl Dual Salmon Concealer, yet I'm not. It's not the product, though. It's me. My eyes are set very (very!) deeply. This means that what appears as "dark circles" is more shadow and the result of my bone structure, not pigmentation or wacky blood flow. Thus, an under-eye concealer that doesn't include light-reflecting/brightening ingredients, will not perform well enough.

Bottom Line: Not a replacement for Touche Eclat.

Eve Pearl Dual Salmon Concealer ($37) is available from evepearl.com.

  1. Thanks for reviewing this! I've had my eye on it for a while after another blogger highly recommended it. However, I've read a few people say that they had troubles with it sliding everywhere and a few mention it settling into lines {I have obnoxious hereditary under-eye creasing that nothing gets rid of} so I've been a bit hesitant. Have you noticed any of that?
