Yves Rocher Flawless Finish Concealer – Dark Circle Corrector

 

I’m slowly working my way through the items featured in my Canada – French Pharmacy Haul. Today we’re taking a quick peek at the Yves Rocher Flawless Finish Concealer – Dark Circle Corrector Stick. I’m not very familiar with Yves Rocher, which is a French brand, that has gone global. Though I used their bath and body products years ago, their makeup offerings are new to me. I was surprised to find that their products are more widely available than I previously thought (they have a U.S., Canada and U.K. website in addition to their European Sites).

The Flawless Finish Concealer claims to “naturally hide dark circles and blemishes for a long-lasting, flawless coverage” in a convenient stick form “with bevelled tip [which] guarantees even application for optimal precision, or retouching throughout the day”.  The product is formulated for the delicate skin around the eyes, boasting a comfortable texture enriched with emollient Musk Rose Oil and claims to have been tested under ophthalmological and dermatological supervision.

Yves Rocher Flawless Finish Concealer – Medium Beige

 

Unfortunately, it is only offered two shades: Light Beige and Medium Beige. The one my mum picked up for me is in Medium Beige.  After testing it for about three weeks, here are my thoughts:

Application: I apply this directly from stick to face but it does require some blending, best done with your fingers or a small, dense flat topped stippling style brush. Given the creamy, emollient formula this is a good option for those with drier under eyes, which mine can be from time to time. In this respect, it reminds me somewhat of the texture of the Benefit Fake Up Concealer but definitely not as emollient.

Coverage: In terms of coverage under the eye area, I would classify it as medium. There is a hint of salmon to the colour which helps with darkness. For me, the colour Medium Beige matches my skin tone too closely for there to be a highlighting affect though I suspect Light Medium would have been a good option to achieve this for those of us with light-medium skin tones.  On the face, it will provide decent coverage for dark spots, blemishes etc. but not make them vanish completely.

Wear: When worn under the eyes, this should be set with a powder to minimize creasing. Although not as bad as some other formula’s I’ve tried, there can be slight creasing (on me) by the end of the day. This wears on the face (for blemishes) for about 6-8 hours before I notice some fading.

Yves Rocher Flawless Finish Concealer – Medium Beige Swatch

 

Final Thoughts: A decent, more affordable option for quick and convenient concealing. Over the past few weeks, I’ve discovered my two favorite ways to use of this concealer. The first is for that area between your inner tear duct and your nose that can become dark or shadowed. This does a great job of blurring that darkness. The second is to conceal healing blemishes. You know how sometimes as a blemish is healing, the area around it can get dry and flaky (especially if you are using some sort of treatment)? Well because this formula is fairly emollient (but not greasy) it does a good job of covering those blemishes without accentuating dryness.

The Yves Rocher Flawless Finish Concealer Stick retails for $11.00 USD/£9.00/$15.00 CAD. However, at the moment Yves Rocher is having a massive sale across their websites with up to 45% off their bestsellers, making these $6.05USD/£5.04/$8.25 CAD. Here are the links: Yves Rocher USA, Yves Rocher UK and Yves Rocher Canada. None of these are affiliate links and I have no association with the company/brand whatsoever but I was checking their websites for pricing info and discovered the sale. There’s also a pretty awesome GWP on offer…I might just have to place an order.

  1. I love Yves Rocher, I use some of their skincare and the cleansers are my favourite thing! I haven’t tried any makeup from them though, even though since there’s always some crazy offer running the prices are seriously cheap for the quality (from what I read in various reviews!). But I’m simply never drawn to it! The fact that this works well on healing blemishes is great! 😉 xx

      I’m really thinking of ordering some stuff. Still haven’t made my mind up yet…but they’re prices are seriously affordable. What are your skincare suggestions? 🙂

      1. The cleansers from the Hydra Vegetal and the Pure System line, and the toner from the 3 Detoxifying Teas line! 😉

      Thanks hun! Concealers are so personal, but I think there are a few that work well for many people, generally, like the famed MAC pro-long wear concealer (which incidentally, I’ve never tried because they never seem to have my colour at the local store) 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Hey there Kimmy. I have used quite a few skincare bits, but haven’t actually gone for their make up just yet. This looks like a lovely concealer though! I am not too keen on stick concealers but will give it a swirl to see if it’s anything for me ! xx

      I can’t wait to try those samples – curious about their skincare now. Let me know I’d you end up testing the concealer. It’s definitely not the best I’ve ever tried but for the price it’s pretty good. 🙂

    I have never even heard of this brand! Must go have a nosy….pink toned concealers look yuck on me. I think they are great for brightening up your face, but I can’t wear them 🙁

      I usually have a hard time with finding something that won’t crease. Concealer is definitely very personal, as all makeup is, but I think more so because we all have different needs. What are some if your favourites?

  4. Sounds alright. I use a liquid concealer from Smashbox at the moment.
