Clinique Line Smoothing Concealer

This Clinique 'Line Smoothing' concealer is a product I use every day so I thought it was about time it got its own little post. I had always stuck to cheaper concealers until my lovely mum recommended this one to me. Although I'm not quite old enough to benefit fully from the so-called 'line smoothing' effect, it's still a cracker of a concealer.

Clinique also offer the stick-type correcting concealer, however, I much prefer those that are liquid based as I just find them so much easier to apply and blend. Although many would say you get far better results if you apply with a concealer brush, I find that I get equally as fabulous results when I just blend with my fingers.

While the packaging and look of the concealer is a neither here nor there, the product really speaks for itself. It's a really lightweight formula which covers blemishes, redness and spots better than any other concealer I've tried. It's definitely the perfect choice if you're having a bad skin day!

This concealer does brighten underneath my eyes slightly, yet I do find it a tad too dark a shade for my skin. I have the lightest shade (02 Light) and it is not light enough for my under-eye area, and can often look a tad orangey depending on which foundation I am wearing!

If Clinique made this concealer in any lighter shades, it would be perfect. The only problem with this product is that it's only available in 4 shades; this seems a bit too limiting for me. It's available online, from department stores or Boots for £16.

What do you think of Clinique's concealers?


  1. It does look pretty dark tbh, sometimes I really struggle to find products that suit my skin as I am so pale, and it's such a shame xx

    1. It's so annoying that pricey brands don't offer a larger range of shades! xx

  2. Like you, I've not tried much of Clinique's base makeup, as It just isn't extensive enough in the colour range, which is such a shame!

    1. It's always a struggle to get a colour match which is pale enough! xx
