Thrice as Nice: Make Up Store Cover All Mix

By | December 14 2009 | 10 Comments


I’m a nut for concealers: Bobbi Brown’s creamy concealer is one of my all-time favourites and Benefit’s Erase Paste has proven to be a surprise hit too. I definitely favour a cream over a Touche Eclat-style fluid, and am always on the hunt for the next big thing. A surgical strike this weekend on my bathroom cabinets allowed me to bring a few bits into play that’d been hovering in a limbo of ‘oh I really must try that’ for a couple of months.

One of them was Make Up Store’s Cover All Mix, €28.50. The brand is new and exclusive to Arnotts and this circular pan contains three concealing and correcting shades (it looks a lot more fleshy-toned in the, eh, flesh), and can be used, according to the brand, thusly: “The yellow concealer covers red areas such as spots and blood vessels. The orange-red concealer covers blue areas like dark rings under the eyes. The beige concealer lightens up skin tones.”

Oh right, I hadn’t actually read that before I used it and so just thought it was presented in three shades so you could mix yer own blend. Which is what I did, and it worked really bloody well.  You will need a brush for this, and I mixed on the back of my hand to get a shade I felt was right for my skintone. The pigmentation was great, thick but not cakey and as I tend to mainly use concealer around my eyes, if it’s drying I’ll know straight away. This isn’t.

Not cheap, I know, but a good basic buy you’ll get a lot of use from. And of course, if you’re popping along to our event on Wednesday, then you can check it out for yourself!

  • Oh blimey! They have really pumped up the prices for you gorgeous lasses in Ireland, more reasonably priced over here. But then again, this concealer is frickin’ brilliant. Love it and it lasts a lifetime.

    benefit erase paste all the way!!!! love it!!!!!

  • cch says:

    Hmm, sounds interesting, is there a choice of palette shades or does one (three!) suit all?
    Boo to any mad mark-up though.

  • Kirstie says:

    Cch – I think there are a couple alright, definitely a dark variation. I have the light version and it looks way nicer and wearable than the pic.

  • Susan says:

    Hmm may have to take a look at this. I love my Dior concealer & it works a treat most of the time but I’m suffering through a mad post-stressed-out-for-2-years breakout & need something a little stronger at the mo.

  • Lucie says:

    They’re seriously overpriced here. In Lithuania cover all mix costs around ~20 euro.

  • Jenizzle says:

    You can also get this in random chemists – I saw it in the chemist at the Beacon place in where Dunnes is in Sandyford :)

  • Kirstie says:

    Jenizzle – is it the same brand?

  • jenizzle says:

    Sorry Kirstie, yer right! I was thinking of the Make Up Factory, not Store… *hangs head in shame*

    That’s so mad I only stumbled across The Make Up Store yesterday..I was in a rush so I bought one of their Eazy Cover concealerflage’s which are like less shiny versions of Benefit’s Boiing.

    Love the texture…Hate the colour, dunno if it was the lighting in Arnotts or what but I got a shade which is completely wrong and if I put it on my face I look like a giraffe..
