ESSENCE ALL I NEED CONCEALER PALETTE


The All I Need Concealer Palette from Essence offers five different concealer colours for a variety of combinations. There are complimentary colours to counteract and neutralize red and purple colours, as well as skin and salmon tones to create the perfect skin shade for covering up blemishes.

Retailing at $6.99 CAD, the palette contains 0.21 oz/6 g of product. Texture wise, I was quite surprised to find that the shades were super creamy. I've found that most cream-based drugstore concealers are always impossible to blend out, but this palette was the opposite! I was able to pick up the product with my finger, and it easily applied onto my face. I do prefer applying it with my fingers just because the warmth helped to melt the product slightly and make it even creamier. 


The All I Need Concealer Palette's shades can be used as follows:
2 Beige Shades: can be mixed or used individually to cover imperfections.
Pink: to brighten tired skin.
Green: Neutralizes redness.
Yellow: Conceals under eye shadows.

Coverage wise, I'd say the coverage is pretty good for a drugstore concealer. I wouldn't call it heavy coverage, but it definitely evened out my skintone where I needed it, and gave me a natural looking coverage that still let my natural skin show. I would also say that while all of the shades are great, the green is not as green as I would like it to be. It is actually more of a teal, which is not directly across from red on the colour wheel. Because of this, I'd say the green did not cover my redness as much as I would like it to.


If you're on a budget but looking for a complexion correcting palette, the All I Need Concealer Palette from Essence is truly "all you need". Darker skin tones however may find the two beige tones in the palette far too light, although you would still be able to use the three correcting shades, and your regular concealer over them.

The All I Need Concealer Palette is now available at Shoppers Drug Mart in Canada.

  1. Hmm this one seemed just ok. For a drugstore color correcting palette, I prefer the NYX one as it has more range of colors and as you mentioned, an actually green corrector haha
