Don’t let the blues get you down! FACE Atelier Ultra Camouflage Duet

FACE atelier Ultra Camouflage Duet

Red, brown, black, blue…none of those shades have any business being on my face. So I spend a lot of time covering them up – and I am always looking for something amazing to help me do so. I remember discovering the pro FACE atelier line after Madonna chose it for her 2010 tour – I was obsessed with their Lip Glaze, especially the ICE shade (still a favorite after all these years, by the way!). FACE atelier has amazing products and the Ultra Camouflage Duet ($35) is one of the best in the line. So – if you also don’t think red, brown, black, or blue spots don’t belong on your face, then read on!

The FACE atelier Ultra Camouflage Duet is a silicone-based concealer that gets rid of every sort of discoloration – dark undereye circles, blue veins, red spots, hyperpigmentation, brown spots, you name it. There are two shades – one cool and one warm – that work together to cover anything that you just don’t want showing.  The coverage is buildable, the texture is smooth, and the formula is long-wearing. Key ingredients include:

Petrolatum – Petrolatum is considered to be among the most effective moisturizing ingredients available and is also known for its effectiveness in healing wounds. It can help the skin’s outer layer recover from damage, reduce inflammation, and generally heal the skin. Cosmetics-grade petrolatum is considered the safest, most non-irritating moisturizing ingredients ever found.

Cetyl Dimethicone Copolyol – a member of the silicone family that imparts emolliency, and significantly enhances a product’s lifespan and effectiveness. They create a soft, smooth product that is pleasant to apply and imparts a unique skin feel. It is naturally water-resistant while absorbing sebum (the oily substance produced by certain glands in the skin), reducing skin shine. Silicone molecules are larger than human pores, preventing them from settling into them upon application, and the unique molecular structure of silicones (larger molecules with wider spaces between each molecule) allow them to form a breathable barrier.

A big tip – you want to pat this on, don’t swipe. And – gulp – use your fingers. Body heat seems to really make this concealer perform at its highest potential, truly melding properly with the skin at a level just a tad higher than it does when using a brush.  Now, I know that sticking fingers into creamy makeup products isn’t the best idea, but all you need to do is spritz the compact with BeautySoClean Cosmetics Sanitizer Mist after using it and you are good to go, all sanitized and all good with the cleanliness gods.

The pigmentation is fabulous so it covers just about everything. I typically use the lighter shade first, patting it on with my finger, then the darker shade over that. It easily covers blue and red colors. Even though it’s a creamy consistency, I do not find that it sinks into fine lines. I do set it with powder although some may love the satin finish and want to simply keep it like that.

My compact shade is #1 Light, and it also comes in Medium, Dark, and Darker shades.  Another intriguing shade is Erase, which I am dying to try – check this out:
It’s supposed to be really incredible at eliminating dark undereye circles and blueness.  I can’t wait to try it!
I highly recommend this fantastic concealer for eliminating any unwanted dark areas, blue circles, red spots, etc. that you just don’t want on your face. You can find FACE atelier and the Ultra Camouflage Duet online at faceatelier.com or at camerareadycosmetics.com.  – Lisa
