A concealer palette to help cover 'imperfections'?

A few weeks ago whenever I was watching videos on You Tube, every single advert showed this product and I pretty much got sucked into the videos and was completely mesmerized by what it was showing me. I sometimes find that my foundation doesn't always cover all my 'imperfections' so I thought I would give this a go to see if it would help.

I had to go to Boots twice before purchasing this as it had completely sold out (apart from the tester ones that they had but there's no way I would of bought those.) With it being sold out I thought I wasn't the only one who seemed to be impressed by the adverts they had shown. On my second attempt I was grabbed the first one I could see and went straight to the check out. It normally retail sells at £12.99  (I think) but when it was scanned it went through at £9.99 which I was very happy about.

Before I get on with my thoughts and opinions, I thought I would give you a quick 'tour' of all the different colours:


This helps to neutralize any redness in the skin which is the main reason why I bought it. I have some redness on my face - mostly on my cheeks and I'm not a massive a fan of this. Most of the time my foundation doesn't really over it and it looks like I've gone over the top with my blusher. This is suppose to help to cover blemishes and rosacea.


Helps to correct discolouration and brightens the skin i.e. to be used on dark circles and veins

Beige trio

To help to cover imperfections such as eye bags and spots

I was very eager to try out this product and went ahead and applied the green around my cheeks and on some red spots, the lightest shade in the beige section under my eyes and then applied the purple on my eye lids because as gross as it sounds, you can see the veins on my eye lids.

Overall I hate to admit this but it really doesn't cover much on my face. The beige trio is somewhat okay for my under my eyes but it's not 100% covered. The green for the redness in my cheeks doesn't really do much and I still get red skin showing up even after my foundation which makes me extremely disappointed. The purple on my eye lids didn't really do much either. I'm just happy that I didn't pay full price for it.

Whenever I do write reviews I always check out what other people have said about this and I did try to find some reviews on Bloglovin but I couldn't find anything on it so I checked the Boots website. There's only four reviews and two of them are five stars and one of them is a two star and the other a one star so it looks like it's a marmite product.

I do still continue to use this as it's not making my face worse, it's just not making it 100 times better. Although, one of the reviews say she goes applies the purple concealer under her eyes and then goes over it with a beige shade so I'm going to try and that and see it that helps. I'm not really too sure what I can do with the redness on my face. I can only think that I double the amount of the green concealer I put on my face and see if that helps.

As much as I hate to say this but I don't really think it's worth the hype and I wouldn't recommend wasting your hard earned money on this product. I do feel that other companies and makeup brands might start to create their own version of this palette because as far as I know, this is the only one really on the market(?) I would deffo give this another go had another makeup brand sold their own version but I'm in no rush to repurchase this product which is sad because I was really hoping it was going to work for my skin.
