TheBalm Time Balm Concealer|Dark

timebalmconcealerdarkHey loves,

I’m the kinda girl who simply loves a bargain. I live for a sale. Will I pay full price for a product? YES! Do I prefer a sale? YESSSS! Now I’m sure you are now wondering where I’m going with this because what does that have to do with this concealer right? Well, this baby retails for $18.00 and I, yes me TaNia self proclaimed Girl Fabulous purchased this baby for $6.99 and tax free with free shipping! Can you understand now why I feel so good about this purchase?!? Let me just tell y’all that I love! Like when I’m looking for anything (not really make up because they don’t carry much) I always check their first. When I go in a store and see a shoe I want I check 6pm first to be sure they don’t have it because I’m all about saving a dime. So while window shopping as I do regularly I came across this concealer which I had been wanting for a measly little $6.99 I was like oooooh yea lol. I’m gonna stop rambling now and get to it!

timebalmconcealerAs you can see I picture up the shade Dark. Now, when picking this color I was very much aware that it would not be “dark”. I honestly picked it up for the sole purpose of being an under eye highlight or for my brows (underneath). I feel like these cosmetic companies should take a long hard  look at the shades they are considering to be “dark” because this ain’t it but that’s another story for another day. timebalmdark

It’s a very small and compact pot that stores easy and it’s made out of plastic with a screw off top. It comes with a little sponge in the pot but in real life who’s using that? I mean really who? I suppose it’s the thought that counts.


Clearly it’s nothing dark about this concealer but I’m thinking still that it would be perfect for an under eye highlight. It’s a very creamy consistency and it’s easy to blend. It didn’t offer my very much coverage when testing it however, I did not test it on top of make up and my guess it it would indeed be perfect for a natural highlight. It has a yellow undertone which is perfect for me. I hate a red concealer of any kind and sadly most of the foundations or concealers in my shade have a red undertone. As if a deep skinned person can’t be yellow underneath but I digress. timebalmdark3 It swatches just a bit lighter then it looks in the pot however, with lots of blending, the warmth from fingers and a subtle setting powder this had the potential to be a great highlight. I did use it under my brows and it blended very well. I don’t like super highlight so this is perfect.

Do you have any of these concealers? What are you thoughts?
