I recently received a very generous package from Mary Kay with some highlights from their new Summer 2016 collection. Some of the standouts in the collection are their new Perfecting Concealers and Undereye Corrector.
There are 6 colours for the Perfecting Concealers:
- Light Ivory
- Deep Ivory
- Light Beige
- Deep Beige
- Light Bronze
- Deep Bronze
As you can see, Mary Kay has grouped them by basic colouring and then provided a ‘light’ and ‘deep’ version of this. The last swatch is of the Undereye Corrector.
For the Undereye Corrector, it only comes in one shade, a light pinky salmon colour. I would say one negative of these concealers and the Undereye Corrector is the lack of colour selection. The six colours do a decent job of covering the basics, but it is by no means stellar.
In terms of application, both the Perfecting Concealer and the Undereye Corrector come with a doe foot applicator with 0.21 oz of product. Both the Perfecting Concealer and the Undereye Corrector retail for $17.50 CAD. In terms of comparison, this contains 0.01 oz less than the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer.
Now in terms of the concealer’s performance. My colour is Light Beige and it’s a pretty decent match. This concealer has really great coverage. I’ve been having these really weird dark spots on my face (going to the dermatologist about it soon) so I thought that this would be a great way to showcase the power of these concealers!

Volia! Very happy with the coverage!
The Undereye Corrector performs very similarly to the Perfecting Concealer. I would say that if you mostly use your concealer for under the eyes (and the one shade works for you), the Undereye Corrector is just fine. If you also use your concealer for zits or discolouration, a Perfecting Concealer shade would probably work better.
All in all, I’ve very happy with these products! The coverage is great and I think they are very comparable to higher end brands or formulations!
Thanks so much for reading! Hope you have a great day!
