Too Faced | Born This Way Super Coverage Multi-Use Sculpting Concealer: Review
New from Too Faced comes a multi-use concealer designed to camouflage, highlight, and contour. Packed with pigments that provide a flawless coverage, the Born This Way Super Coverage Multi-Use Sculpting Concealer ($36 CAD for 15ml) is formulated with coconut water, alpine rose, and hyaluronic acid for a hydrating, creaseless wear.

Packaging:
The Born This Way Super Coverage Multi-Use Sculpting Concealer comes in a surprisingly large and thick matte plastic tube (containing 15 ml of product versus the standard 6 or 7 ml) paired with an over-sized doe-foot applicator. With a uniquely diamond-shaped tip, the doe-foot is designed to provide a more precise, sculpting effect. However, the product requires blending no matter what it's used for (i.e. highlight, contouring, concealing) so I don't really see the point of a special, "precision" applicator. Nevertheless, the doe-foot gets the job done because it's much larger than a standard doe-foot, making it easier to cover larger areas.

Formulation:
With an oil-free, non-comedogenic (unlikely to cause breakouts) formulation, the Born This Way Super Coverage Multi-Use Sculpting Concealer provides a true full-coverage that's easy to blend and non-cakey. With a natural matte finish, the concealer feels slightly "drier" and more silicone-y than the original Born This Way Concealer. I experienced some immediate creasing around the eye area which required some additional blending and smoothing but the formulation sits nicely on the skin without emphasizing pores or clinging to dry patches. In terms of wear, the concealer fared well but not amazingly. There was notable fading on the nose and a visible amount of pigments collected in the creases around the nose. Therefore, I don't think the concealer is great for the T-zone but it works well for the undereye area and the rest of the face.
Too Faced | Born This Way Super Coverage Multi-Use Sculpting Concealer in "Porcelain" & "Vanilla": Review

The range offers 20 shades in total and I have swatched here "Porcelain" and "Vanilla", which are very similar to each other. They look almost identical in the picture but in person, "Porcelain" is slightly more yellow than "Vanilla" (I expected the other way around, but it's not). Below I am wearing "Vanilla", which is a decent match for my NC 15 skin. As you can see, the concealer provides complete coverage of all blemishes. While textural imperfections are still present, the concealer provides a uniform tone that camouflages all discoloration.

Overall this is a really great full-coverage concealer with a natural matte finish. I'm not buying too much into the "multi-use" selling point as all concealers can be used to highlight and contour as long as you choose the appropriate shades. Additionally, I don't think the formulation is anything revolutionary or one-of-a-kind but it's certainly one I can see myself using on a daily basis until the very last drop. If you have combination to oily and prefer a full-coverage, dry-touch concealer, then definitely check this out.
