Quick Review: YSL All Hours Concealer (Dark Skin)

Read ALL about my review process including how I take swatches, photos, and more here.

OMG remember when YSL Touche Eclat was all the rage in the beauty internet streets? I know I used to love that stuff but then ventured on to wanting more coverage especially when contouring hit the web hard. Now I barely hear or see anyone using Touche Eclat—and it seems (at least to me) YSL caught onto this and added more concealer options. Not sure when All Hours Concealer hit, but I also have the new Touche Eclat High Cover concealer to review (that I know is new) but both of these provide more coverage than its sibling concealer.

P.S. I also have some other concealers I’ve already reviewed and a few coming soon, so make sure you sign up for my blog updates so you know when a new post is up and also bookmark my concealer category to check out all of my concealer reviews.

Official description:

What it is:
A new 16 hour-wear, full-coverage concealer that instantly and completely covers skin imperfections, yet does not crease, crack, or look masky.

What it does:
Instantly blur and erase imperfections including dark circles, bags, redness, hyperpigmentation, broken capillaries, age spots, and discoloration. This advanced 16-hour formula won’t cake, crease, or fade nor will it accentuate the look of fine lines and wrinkles. The highly concentrated, flexible pigments move with you to provide a highly workable and blendable texture that stands up to makeup meltdowns and resists fading, heat, humidity, and touch. The ultra-smooth, creamy matte finish looks just-applied all day. No touch-ups required.

The shade range could be better by leaps and bounds, but the formula is nice—it brightens a bit and held up well under my eyes without any creasing. My closest shade match was #7 Coffee. I would need a better shade though if I solely wanted this to correct the darkness under my eyes, but the bit of brightening it adds is nice for a more full face look. (If all I’m doing is covering discoloration under my eyes, I want the concealer to be closer to my skin tone without the extra brightening—otherwise it’s brightening too much and would need other makeup to balance it out).
