In middle school and high school when your complexion began taking on a life of its own and you were battling constantly with frequent breakouts you couldn’t get rid of, I was the annoying peer you had with the clear complexion. In seventh grade I went through a period of a few months when pimples broke out on my chin and they refused to go away, but when they eventually did, they didn’t return. That is, until I was well into adulthood. In adolescence and throughout my teen years, I thought I was lucky in the respect that I didn’t have to worry about blemishes. I was already a huge nerd throughout those years and was picked on frequently, so I really didn’t need that added stress anyway, but my seemingly good fortune did eventually run out. As an adult, I am now frequently faced with breakouts, I have a few areas around my mouth and chin that have scarred from acne, red spots, and I have dark circles under my eyes that refuse to go away regardless of the amount of sleep I get or how hydrated I am.
Finding a concealer that is light, easy to apply, doesn’t further irritate my skin, and looks good is no easy feat, and I have tried several different skin-concealing products by multiple brands to no avail. When I saw the Sheer Cover Duo Concealer in the Spring Beauty VoxBox I was lucky enough to receive from Influenster, I figured that it would be yet another product I would end up using once or twice only to be disappointed by it. However, it took just one use to turn me into a believer in Sheer Cover. In fact, moments after applying it that first morning, I couldn’t help but to take to Twitter with my excitement.

That was five days ago, and since then, I have used it every single day and still love it just as much as I did the first time I saw it magically covering up the puffy, dark circles under my eyes and giving my skin one consistent tone with no hint of my usual red spots.
As I mentioned I was going to do in my tweet, I did take before and after photos when I used the Sheer Cover Duo Concealer. I was surprised myself at just how drastic the difference is and how many of my facial flaws disappear when using this product. Applying it myself in the mirror is one thing, but seeing the difference in photos is quite a different experience.
The Sheer Cover Duo Concealer is creamy in texture and it moisturizes your skin with Jojoba, which helps nourish and restore the natural moisture balance in your skin, and Allantoin, which calms and soothes sensitive and irritated skin. It is extremely easy to apply with either your fingertips, a concealer brush, or cosmetic sponge. For best coverage, start with the lighter tone of the duo and blend the two tones together, adding layers to increase coverage where you need it.
You can wear Sheer Cover alone, but I think it looks a little weird all by itself without any other makeup on. Even in the sequence of before and after photos, I included one of my face after Sheer Cover with eyeliner and mascara on, just to give you an idea of what it should look like with your daily cosmetic basics. When you do apply makeup after the concealer, be sure to let it dry (it’s a creamy texture and a little oily until you blend it completely) before putting makeup on top of it.
I am so impressed with the Sheer Cover Duo Concealer, and absolutely love the results I got with it. Whether you deal with blemishes, dark spots, hyperpigmentation, or uneven skin tone, this concealer can take care of all of it, while also providing antioxidant protection from free-radical scavengers. Sheer Cover is also dermatologist-tested.
You can purchase the Sheer Cover Duo Concealer on the Sheer Cover website or call 1-877-489-2035. It retails for $29.95 alone, or you can purchase the introductory system which also included this concealer for the same price.

I’m going to have to try this stuff out. I hate foundation/concealer/etc. because it makes my skin feel cakey. Thanks for all the information! Very useful indeed.
I may have to check this one out… but I’m pretty happy with my sephora brand powder foundation right now =)
Sounds like a great product! I suffer from pretty severe dark circles (I blame my middle eastern genetics!) and am always on the lookout for the right under eye cover up!
