A214297 - Josie Maran Argan Full Coverage Concealer Pen w SettingPowder
Good - BUT
This is no doubt the most effective concealer I have ever used BUT the pen packaging idea is awful. The second time I went to use it the brush shot out of the pen and down my sink drain. I kept it because it is so effective but had to buy a brush to use it.
It would work so MUCH better in a small flat compact with the concealer and powder side by side with a brush on one end and a sponge applicator on the other end.
Make it BETTER...
Great concept- bad execution!
Only got to use the product once since the mechinism broke! Sent it back but the product appeared to be a great idea! Keep trying with this one.
The concealer is a bit too heavy and the powder is masky........then ...like everyone else I sprung the spring too.....cant put it back together...for the price there isnt much coverconcealer in the packaging and of course......the packaging needs alot of work
packaging broke after two uses!!
I don't normally write reviews, but I had to for this. I love Josie Maran's products but this is horrible!! I couldn't figure out how to use it at first. After several minutes of trying to figure it out, I was able to obtain a small amount of the concealer and it was cakey. After 2-3 uses a spring broke inside of the tube and it is worthless.
The container is awful. The first time the spring popped out I lost the applicator brush. It will not even fit back together. Also there is actually very little concealer in it. I am on the website right now to return this defective product !!
Best Concealer Ever in Worst Packaging!
Love the concealer, it doesn't get into fine lines, it's got great finishing powder, it really looks like skin but the contraption that houses it all is the worst - good idea, very poor execution! Fell apart within 2 days, it is constantly popping open but the concealer is so good, it's worth it!
I've tried just about every concealer ever made, this is without the best!
Not so great
I like the concealer if you can make it work. I am sending back. The spring keeps falling out sometimes I have to forcefully pull out the applicator to get it out of the container. I have used it now 3 times and still can't get the full effect.
I sent the product back because it came apart and I had to work to get the
powder out of the pen. Too little product and terrible design.
Not For Me (sigh)
I have been trying every concealer out there and maybe it is just the skin under my eyes but I just can't seem to find one that doesn't make the under-eye area look like a speckled egg. I expected this one to be lighter and creamier because it contained Argan Oil, but it is a little thick and pasty for me. My pen also lost the spring load within the first two weeks.
Rethink this concealer
I have no complaints about the product itself, but for the price, there's very little there. I realize the attempt was to make something that would be "efficient" in our makeup bag and would be great on the go. However, this particular idea misses the mark. I have the pot of concealer that came with another item--maybe an "on the go" apparatus would be the pot of concealer and on the flip side a finely milled finishing powder compact. I am keeping my "pen" but will not re-order.
Love JM's argan products, but this concealer did not offer anything new or better than others I've ordered from Q. I also purchased the new eyeliner/shadow duo pen from Josie and the spring-loaded end cap popped off within a couple of weeks so am unable to use the brush. Am returning this also in case the same thing happens to the gimmicky applicator. Stick to basics with great ingredients like argan oil -- no need for the fussy applicator designs!
Best concealer Ever
This is by far the best concealer I have ever used. It goes on nicely and the powder sets it beautifully. I am a huge skeptic about powders but this one does not enhance fine lines and sets the concealer to last and last. I will reorder this again and more of this line. I love it!
