If you’re a regular reader around here then you will know how much I love concealer. The BarePro foundation from Bare Minerals is one of my favourite foundations and the brand really knows skin. The exciting news is that there’s a full coverage concealer joining the BarePro range (and fans of the NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer are going to love it!!). Here’s a look at the Bare Minerals BarePro 16 HR Full Coverage Concealer. I have photos and swatches.
This is really my kind of concealer. It has amazing coverage, a gorgeous creamy, blendable consistency and excellent staying power. Also it’s lovely and hydrating so skin stays looking juicy. What more could you want?!

I used shade 03 under my eyes, on the centre of my forehead, and down my nose. I then used shade 05 around my nostrils, down the smile lines, and on the redness on my chin. 15 would make a brilliant contour shade but I wanted to stick to showing you the concealer benefits of the formula for now.
Before & After
What I love about this is that, like the NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer, it is a serious multitasker. It covers pores , redness, pigmentation and dark circles, and also blurs out fine lines and uneven texture. I think this is as good as that and the stick format makes it easier to use. The downside is that you don’t get as much product with the Bare Minerals as the NARS – this stick concealer is 2.5g of product, whereas you get just under 6g with the NARS I believe. If you hate the pot, then this is the one!!
I am really impressed with this new launch so far. I haven’t actually managed to test the longevity yet on my face, but I have had the swatches on my arms for several hours and they haven’t budged. I’ll update as soon as I can but I have very high hopes.
The Bare Minerals BarePro 16 HR Full Coverage Concealer and available to order exclusively HERE now for £23. I highly recommend this!
