As a member of the Tomoson blogging community, I received a free stick of Advanced Mineral’s Perfecting Concealer in beige cream.
Created by television and film makeup artist Annie Mayo, Advanced Mineral Makeup is anti-inflammatory and allows skin to breathe. The vegan and paraben-free products contain no perfume, dyes, talc, or preservatives. Providing camera-ready coverage, these products are even used on the sets of Grey’s Anatomy and NCIS!

I have problematic skin. I suffer from adult acne and hyperpigmentation. I have no problem paying more for skin care products and makeup, if they work. At the moment, I’m using a BB cream (mineral-based) on my skin instead of foundation, but I do like mineral powder foundation and have used it often in the past. This was the first time I’ve used a mineral concealer, and I don’t know why I’ve never tried before! I’ve had such good results with other mineral products; it makes sense a mineral concealer would work well for me too.
Now, when I say a product doesn’t break me out, I still break out. I will end up with acne, whether I’m wearing makeup or not. So what I look for are products that don’t make me break out more than usual. That was this concealer for me. I’m very happy with it. It gives me great coverage, blends in well, and I don’t break out any more than what’s normal for me. It’s also long-lasting. I can go all day, and it even survives toddler hugs and kisses. 🙂
Here are some before and after photos of me in outside light. It was sunny, but I was standing under a porch overhang. In the before photos, I’m wearing BB cream but no concealer. The photos are untouched.
I’m thrilled with this concealer! I will buy it when I’m out of this tube. The Advanced Mineral Makeup Perfecting Concealer retails for $24. You can find it on their website or on (affiliate link>) Amazon. If you purchase it on Amazon, you can receive free shipping with the super saver shipping deal or with an Amazon Prime membership.
I do want to note that I showed this concealer to a friend (yes, I’ve been raving about it to people), and she liked how the concealer blended but felt it was heavier than she prefers. Now, she does have MUCH better skin than I do. Personally, I think that someone with terrible skin like mine needs something a little thicker to cover the problem areas, and it doesn’t FEEL heavy to me. My friend also found the beige cream to be a little dark for her pale skin. Advanced Mineral only makes the two colors: beige cream and golden cream, but they’re meant to blend into different skin shades.
What do you think? Do you have a concealer you absolutely love? Would you give Advanced Mineral Makeup Perfecting Concealer a try?
