I purchased Time Balm concealer ($18) in the shade Light/Medium during theBalm’s crazy dramatic 50% off sale a couple months ago. Now that I’ve been using it for awhile, I have a few thoughts about it!
I like medium coverage concealers that are not too heavy and will perform simple tasks like evening out redness or under eye circles. I’m not covering acne, scars, or anything like that.
Light/Medium is a good shade match for me. It is a neutral color and matches my skin tone nicely when it comes to brightening up under my eyes. The consistency is a little stiff, and I’m not sure if this is because of the packaging or not. The packaging is incredibly flimsy and it’s in a plastic container. I wish this was either in thicker plastic packaging or in a glass jar. If you’re rough on product storage, you might find that this will break easily.
Use this uniquely smooth anti-wrinkle concealer all day to cover dark circles and imperfections while protecting your delicate skin from environmental stresses. TimeBalm is packed with beneficial ingredients including Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Soybean Oil, Panthenol, Linoleic Acid and Phospholipids to help you look absolutely stunning around the clock.
Time Balm in Light Medium, Covergirl & Olay Simply Ageless in Light Medium, MAC Pro Conceal and Correct NW20 and NC20
In comparison to the swatched concealers above, this is similar to the Covergirl & Olay concealer in consistency, though the Covergirl one is softer and easier to blend. That said, it also dries a lot faster. The MAC concealers are thicker.
Coverage with Time Balm is a medium coverage concealer; it doesn’t cover like a heavy duty product like Hard Candy Glamoflauge. This definitely does have enough coverage for me though, as it is very natural looking when applied.
While I like this concealer, I think there are just as good, if not better, concealers at lower price levels at the drugstore, so I wouldn’t purchase it at the full price of $18, especially with the flimsy packaging.
