WHAT THE GEEK THINKS:
The Ben Nye Total Cover-all Wheel in SK-100 is a concealer wheel divided into 6 portions. Although, you may purchase the shades individually, I find it more economical to buy the cover wheel as you get 6 shades for the price of 3. It is a cream based concealer with superb pigmentation. It offers great coverage without making it look thick – it is blendable (I know it is not even a word but you girls get me with that right?) enough to make your makeup look natural and at the same time it has the ability to hide those unwanted marks that you wish to conceal. I tried using this on a birthmark and it covered well. And since it is blends well, you can mix different shades to match the shade of the skin tone that you are aiming for.
I haven’t seen how deep each pan is, but it weighs 1 oz, which means it is packed with a lot of product. Hopefully I won’t hit pan yet, but from the looks of it, it will take long before I get there, even with constant usage of this product.
The shades of the concealer wheel is perfect for a lot of uses. Aside from concealing, it is also perfect for highlighting. Ooops! I photographed the wheel the wrong way! Here’s the name of each shade (from the top ‘middle one’ in clockwise direction) CC-1, MY-2, MO-11, MY-1, MO-2 and the middle one which is MO-1.
It can get cakey on fine lines and for those who have dry skin. But a good moisturizer can cheat you with this one.
You have to heat the concealer first if it gets stored in a cold temperature before using because it tends to solidify a little. It goes back to it’s normal creamy consistency when you leave it in room temperature after.
Buying Ben Nye cosmetics here in the Philippines isn’t quite as accessible as other brands. Good thing for Make Up Pro, items like these are easier to purchase. And the good thing here is that all your make up needs is housed in one roof. No need to look around that much.
It can get a bit oily, so make sure to set it with powder after
- Comes in 6 shades that you can mix together.
- Creamy consistency hence; great in blending.
- Very cheap, considering a pot of concealer would cost you half of this wheel, but with this one, you get 6 more shades amounting to an ounce of great coverage.
- Hides scars and marks well without looking patchy on the skin. IT COVERS WELL!
THE VERDICT: 4/5 I would recommend this product especially for those who are just starting to build their makeup kit like me. I did try several great concealers like MAC, Smashbox and MUFE and this product is at par with them. This is just based on my opinion. Hope it works well for you girls as much as it worked well with me.
