Erase imperfections with the Studio 78 concealer



When it comes to natural and organic make up options things have come a long way in the last few years. When it comes to more full coverage and shade options I still think there is a way to go however with sheerer formulas much more easily found in cream formulas. Enter Studio 78 a brand I have mentioned many times before and one which has a lovely selection of make up with a minimum of 95% natural ingredients and talc free powder formulations in gorgeous colours. As I had really enjoyed all the previous Studio 78 products (See my review here) I had tried, I decided to buy this concealer when I went to Content in London and after swatching it to see the consistency I was sold. 

The Off We go anti-dark circles concealer (£20 for 4.5 mls) is very different from the other concealers I own, it has more of a cream to powder formulation which I find easy to work with, it's nice and creamy in the pot thanks to the squalane and avocado oils I warm in up and apply directly on to the skin with my fingers although I also blend it out with a brush. On my skin it doesn't need powdering although if I do powder it tends to last a lot longer, if I don't moisturise well it can cling to any dry patches especially towards the end of the day but no more so than other products with fuller coverage. The colour selection is poor, more colours please! You get two choices both of which are for light skin, either with yellow or pink undertones, although not overly yellow and more neutral I prefer a yellow based concealer to cover redness and dark circles rather than pink. 





I really like this concealer it blends in nicely to my skin tone and the ingredients are great 100% natural and 20% organic. The plastic pot has plenty of product and a nice mirror in the top of the lid although it doesn't feel very sturdy so I am always careful with it it when I carry it around. If you found RMS un-coverup too dewy and hydrating this may well be better for you as although it is by no means dry it definitely has a much less shiny consistency. Studio 78 continue to impress me and I will be trying the blushers and eye shadows next. Have you tried this brand, if so what did you think?

  1. Sounds lovely, but I agree that they should expand the color selection. I've only tried concealers by Vapour Organic Beauty, W3LL People (my go-to), and 100% Pure. I have yet to try this one. I also would like to try RMS Beauty's Un-Coverup and the concealer by Beauty Without Cruelty.

  2. I have this concealer and quite like it for covering up spots, though I agree that it's bad for showing up any dryness and if I don't powder over the top, the colour slips pretty quickly xx

    1. I find the yellow tone works well for spots, I use it under the eyes too as long as I moisturise well, I remember reading your review too Xx

  3. Covering my dark circles is always tricky. Have you tried any of their other makeup?

    1. Yes I tried the primer and lipstick, Amber reviewed the blushes and they are very good ingredients wise, a nice brand, trouble is selection for natural make up, not always easy to find what you want Xx

  4. I don't think this would work for me, it looks very dark! I'm still on the quest for the perfect dark circle concealer - the Vapour one is pretty good - and a shimmer is always welcome :) x

    1. The colour choices are terrible, the pink based one may be better but concealer is a tricky one! I love the vapour as a touche eclat replacement as I think it's lovely for highlighting. The best thing for dark circles is a warm salmon tone, I loved benefit's erase paste for that reason, we need a more natural version of that! Xx
