Review of The Organic Skin Co. Hide and Seek Concealer

 
The Organic Skin Co. Hide and Seek Concealer in Rose Sand

The Organic Skin Co. Hide and Seek Concealer- $53.00:

Here’s the quick SCORECARD breakdown. Each question is rated on a scale of 1 to 5, 5being the best:

1. How do the ingredients look? What’s inside?- These ingredients look so good! Fewer ingredients, higher quality. Love.

2. How is coverage? Does it conceal flaws?- 4: It does. I'd say it brightens pretty well too. A little goes a very long way. I did set it after seeing a bit of creasing. The coverage is not heavy at all, but still does the trick. Also, the texture is less silky than others, something I think would work well for oilier skin types.

3. Does coverage look natural?- 4: It's definitely a more natural looking concealer that really lightens things up with a lighter, but not too light, amount of concealing happening.

4. Is it non-irritating?- 5: No problems here!

5. Does it build and blend well?- 4: Yes, absolutely. I set this concealer with a transparent powder under my eyes and saw no issues. It also blends well elsewhere on the face!

6. Is the shade range inclusive?- 3: Eight shades is a good start.

7. How conscious is the brand? 5- I rarely give a ‘5’ for this. Check out their site! Major ‘wow’ factor on the combo of being cruelty-free, vegan, recyclable, offering refills, and the brand keeps the environment top of mind by planting trees for every product sold! Job well done.

FINAL SCORE:

25/30

WHAT STANDS OUT:

  • This concealer brightened very well without being heavy on the skin

  • A small amount, pressed lightly, goes a long way and extends beyond under the eye, to the rest of the face

  • This company covers sustainability SO well. I love the brand’s mission and what they’re doing right now

  • The price is STEEP, but I have a hack for that. I show you more in the video (link above). I’d recommend buying a pod and a magnetic palette. Get all the details in the video!

  • I would absolutely recommend this product. It's pricey (try the hack above), but it's great and the quality of ingredients is outstanding
