I have wasted hundreds of dollars trying dozens of expensive, full size concealers in my lifetime, and this one is the first that has actually matched my skin tone perfectly. I am elated. It’s subtle but definitely covers my flaws and leaves me with the feeling of a nice, natural complexion. The small stack size is perfect for carrying around in my everyday makeup bag and takes up no room at all when traveling. Plus, when I didn’t receive my rush order in time for a vacation due to the holiday USPS delays, Subtl’s customer service worked with me quickly to provide a more than satisfactory solution. I will never use another brand again!
I love this concealer. It doesn't fell heavy and drying like some. I like the cream texture that pampers delicate skin!
I was really unsure what color to get because my brand wasn't something that they had a match for. I am fairly pale with cool undertones so I couldn't decide whether to get Chartiers or Arlington, I ended up getting both but ultimately I'm glad I did. The Chartiers is a dead match for my winter skin and I really like how it feels on. In the summer I'm thinking Arlington will be pretty spot on although I'm still hoping they will add a light with cool undertones to their line.
The coverage is pretty good and buildable. I put some on as soon as it arrived mid morning and is still going strong by this evening. I'm really naive when it comes to complex makeup products and I have 2 small children so I am really loving how easy these products are and how multi-use they are. As a bonus, I don't feel guilty when my toddler also wants her makeup done because these can be so subtle they don't make her look too done up lol. Definitely recommend.
I was really unsure which shade to choose bc I’m not a heavy makeup wearer, so this line is right up my alley. Blends beautifully, and was a really good match. I’m going to add another shade from the light group to experiment with, but I’m thinking all 4 are close enough to skin match for different areas/ times of year. I’ve never been so excited about makeup! Thanks Subtl!
I got 2 shades! One for highlight and one for all over the face.
