Review amp Application: Almay Clear Complexion concealer

Pic 2: Applied on acne

Shown in 01 Light
For reference I am about an NC20 in MAC, typically the 2nd lightest shade in a foundation, possibly the lightest depending on the shade range.

As you can tell, it definitely accentuates any dryness/flakes on your skin, like most base makeup.
Excuse the grossness of my acne-prone cheek, I still haven`t figured out a solution for acne... Let me know if you have any tips!

- Medium to full coverage
- Contains salicylic acid
- Wears well throughout the day
- Doesn`t oxidize (on its own)

- Only 3 shades available
- Stopper very loose for the wand
- Doesn`t really cover acne scars

$5-8 for 0.18 oz / 5.3 ml

Overall: B+
This doesn`t cover my acne scars that well (I think because it doesn`t grab onto the uneven surface of the scars very well) but it covers redness and active acne spots, and when worn on top of the L`egere BB cream (review here, which I`ve been using whenever I wear face makeup, the coverage is very nice.

I don`t often set the concealer with powder because this one time I used the E.L.F. Studio HD powder (review here to set and it oxidized to an orange-toned shade. I think it`s probably fine when set with a skin-tone powder, but I often don`t have time in the morning anyway.
I also hate looking like I have makeup on, so I sometimes overblend concealers and foundations, to a point where the coverage is half-gone. This one can be blended to a natural look, but as you can see in the photos the coverage is sheerer.

As I wrote in the cons, the stopper in the tube is not really tight enough, I suspect this dries out faster than other liquid concealers out there, but I haven`t had it long enough to see. Plus the sides of the wand get a lot of concealer on it over time.

Probably, but there are a lot of concealers I want to try.
