Superdrug recently expanded their B Beauty makeup range (which includes the B. Flawless Concealer Duo) and it’s so black girl friendly, they deserve an award! Like honesty, if I could ever be bothered to set up a beauty awards for makeup diversity, they would receive a nomination for the ‘affordability and pigmentation from a highstreet brand’ award by simply acknowledging that there is a wide spectrum of shades in the UK and anyone who does not fit in the ‘beige container’ should not be penalized and forced to pay extortionate amounts for beauty product
Now I’m going to put my hands up and admit that I don’t have any major skin problems so tend to use concealers to brighten and highlight my skin BUT I know that trying to disguise skin imperfections like hyper-pigmentation or dark eye circles on medium-to-dark skin can be as frustrating as finding a decent show on Netflix on a Sunday night but I do honestly feel that using the right concealer for your skintone is essential for a flawless finish which is probably why I’m such a big fan of the B Flawless Concealer Duo.
The B Beauty Flawless Concealer Duo Kits – £7.99 via Superdrug – are a two-shade concealer palette that is designed to allow you to colour-customise and personalize your coverage to address problem areas on your skin e.g. dullness, under-eye circles and skin imperfections. I’ve been lucky enough to have been given the B. Flawless Concealer Duo N8/W9 and the B. Flawless Concealer Duo W10/N10 which are the two darkest shades in the range and as you can see these cream concealer palettes offer two shades – one light and one dark – which can be blended together or used separately depending on what you need it for.
As you can see in my swatch below, there’s definitely more of an obvious difference between two shades in the N8/W9 palette than the shades in the N10/W10. I’m not ashamed to admit that I actually had to raise the concealer to the light to check if there was a difference – and there is, it’s just VERY subtle – between the two shades. As the N8/W9 palette is my shade, I used the lighter shade to highlight my face (T-Zone and under eye area) and the darker shade to frame my eyebrows and I have to admit that I did think the concealer was good. It did exactly what it did on the tin and had a wear time of about 5 hours.
While the formula is quite lightweight and easy to use, I have to admit that I have used cream concealers which are A LOT creamier with stronger packaging and a longer wear-time but I remember that those concealers are double or even triple the price of this offering from Superdrug and with a different target market in mind. If Superdrug/B. Beauty added an even darker/deep duo concealer palette to this range – or just changed up the shade pairing in the N10/W10 palette – then I feel like it would explode and become a cult product within the black beauty community but at the moment, it’s just good . . . . #noshade
The B. Flawless Concealer Duo costs £7.99 and is available to purchase instore and online from Superdrug
