There has been quite a bit of hype for some time now about the Lacura Beauty Concealer Pen (from Aldi believe it or not). Numerous publications have praised it saying it’s on a par with the YSL Touche Éclat and with a price tag a seventh of the price the Lacura version does seem quite appealing.
I bought the Savanna shade, I believe there were two others (I can’t remember the names) but I went for the middle shade. The packaging it came in is pretty average yet the actual product itself looks quite professional. It’s a nice gun mental colour with a push button (exactly the same as the touché éclat) so you apply it in the same way you would any other concealer pen. It says it can be used before make up, after make up or during the day for touch ups so I tried all three.
I’ve used it for a couple of days now around the eye area before putting on my foundation. It goes on smoothly and blends in really well. The formula itself is quite light and therefore isn’t as thick as the touché éclat meaning that it would probably work better on younger skin as opposed to older skin that needs more coverage in this area. I went to use it a couple of times during the day but didn’t need to as it seemed to stay in place.
So, does this product work? Yes, it’s a fantastic alternative to the touché éclat for those on a budget. It does its job and to be honest I probably won’t be buying the YSL version until I’m a bit older as this seems to work pretty much the same on my particular skin. I have tried other concealer pens as well as the touché éclat but this one is the best I have found in a while.
If you have tried this product I would love to hear your views!
