Veil Cover Cream

I was recently offered the opportunity to try Veil Cover Cream, a high coverage cream concealer for tattoos, scars, blemishes, birth marks and various skin conditions. As I don't have tattoos or scars, this isn't usually the type of product I'd be interested in, however a while back I read a blog post by Shannon over at Raspberrykiss (link) and I was amazed at how flawless this product made her skin. I get a lot of hormonal blemishes on my chin area that leave scars behind so it's quite tricky to find products that completely cover this area. I tend to get redness around my nose and on my cheeks too.

The product I was sent is the Demonstration Kit* that contains a wide range of shades including some colours like green and mauve which you can use underneath the more skin-like colours for extra colour correcting. I reckon this kit would be fab for makeup artists who need to be able to cover any skintone. I've swatched all of the colours below so you can see that there is a colour for pretty much everyone.

So I've included a photo of me without any makeup on so you can get an idea of the coverage but honestly, this is amazing stuff! The product has a thick, creamy consistency that is so easy to apply to the skin. I normally use brushes for foundation application as I can never get the finish I want with my fingers but I actually applied this with fingers and it just glides on to the skin so easily and sort of melts in. It's super easy to blend and spread across the face. A little bit goes a long way with this too.

I used the shade Medium and that seemed to be a great match for my skintone. I thought I would have to add some white or mix a few shades but I didn't. I have quite dehydrated skin and I find with a lot of foundations or concealers they can end up going a bit flaky and uneven around my nose area but this didn't have that problem at all. I thought with this being a high coverage product, it would look quite cakey but it's really natural looking and feels really light on the skin. As you can see it covers blemishes and redness so well too. It even lightens up my dark circles quite well. I'm so impressed with this stuff, it's a miracle worker!

The Veil Cover Cream costs £19.95 for 10g or you can get a massive 45g for just £14.05 extra (link). I think this is a fantastic price for such a high performing product. I've also noticed that you can buy sample kits for £6.50 (link) which will be refunded from your next purchase so that's great if you don't want to invest in the full size without trying it first.

Have you tried Veil Cover Cream before?
Is this a product that you'd be interested in trying?
