This New Concealer Actually Fights Pimples
By Elise Minton Tabin , Executive Beauty Editor |
There’s this never-ending love-hate relationship with breakouts and concealers. On one hand, you need a good concealer that can cover up even the worst pimples. On the other hand, loading up makeup on top of a preexisting blemish can, sometimes, make it worse. So what’s a girl to do?
Rather than going bare-faced and putting your breakouts on display for everyone to see, you can conceal your skin while you treat it at the same time. IT Cosmetics, the mastermind behind problem solving beauty products, just launched its new Bye Bye Breakout ($28), and we can’t say enough good things about it.

Perfect for oily and acne-prone skin, this full-coverage concealer, which comes in seven different shades, conceals what you want to cover while shrinking the size and severity of your pimples thanks to a special drying lotion that’s blended into the formula. As if that wasn’t enough, there’s also a slew of anti-aging peptides, oil-absorbing clays, tea tree and even a mix of alpha and betahydroxy acids so that your skin looks better and more even the more you use it.
I gave the concealer a test run on a pretty nasty pimple that popped up overnight on my chin. Not only did the makeup stay in place all day—it didn’t shift or turn cakey midday—but also after two days of using it, my pimple was pretty flat and a lot less red. Hopefully, next they’ll create a foundation just like this concealer—a real beauty dream!
