“ Brand: Virgin Vie / Type: Concealer „
I bought this a few months back from a member on a site called Bigwardrobe for £4 brand new, not bad, not bad! Especially since it's £11 to buy direct from Vie...
I will be honest and say... I do not have amazing skin, in fact I have some acne scarring from my teens and a few blemishes here and there :(
This concealer worked so well for me! It's quite a heavy concealer, in the fact it is quite creaming and covers up anything and everything! And it stays put!
There are four colours in this little beauty - a pale beige (which i use to cover up dark circles), a darker beige (which I rarely use as it's a little too dark for me), a pale green (which is perfect for hiding any red marks) and a lavender (for highlighting).
I use this concealer every day, with Maybelline's 25hour foundation, and the Vie powder on the top.
Generally my make up tends to last all day (Even when I'm at work... and I work in a nursing home so it's ridiculously hot!)
Overall: If you've not got perfect skin like me, give this a go and I promise you that you won't regret it!
A handy little pot of 4 creams to cover, conceal, enhance and perfect.
Vitamin E, renowned for its anti-oxidant benefits
Chamomile extract to help soothe
Rice Germ and Jojoba Oil to moisturise and protect
Pot has 4 different creams,
1 x Green corrector, to even out redness and even out skin tone
1 x lilac corrector, to highlight and brighten complexion
2 x different shades of concealers, blend to suit your skin tone and perfect your complexion all year round.
This is a pretty dark, shiny blue round compact pot. It has two separate compartments. The top inside lid contains a mirror. Inside has the two concealers, divided. This lid is lifted to reveal two separated corrected creams, green and lilac. The pot is very small, 4x 1.2g creams. The pot comes in a lovely dark blue packaged box.
Gently pat on the troublesome areas.
I have to say, I was happy with the results.
The corrector creams are very soft and light to the touch but do cover extremely well. I only needed to use a very small amount on the red areas on my skin. Be careful of applying too much, as skin will appear green! LOL :)
After using the green corrector, I noticed red areas around spots were dramatically reduced and also helped reduce redness in my cheeks and around my nose.
The lilac cream used for highlighting catches the light lovely on the skin. I used this one on the top of my cheekbones. Used after applying the concealers.
The concealers are great. I used the concealers for under my eyes on dark circles, also on areas of redness, after green corrector applied. They blended on the skin very well together. My skin tone did look alot more evened out with a natural appearance.
All creams are absorbed very well into the skin. As light as they are, they do cover very well. There is a definate different after using the creams. My skin looked clearer, alot more even toned. Appearance of spots reduced. There is no fragrance that I could detect to these creams.
The Creams did not rub off and lasted on my skin all day. I have tested both ways. Before applying foundation, also as a touch up after foundation. Both ways work well. However. I did prefer to apply my foundation after the correction creams.
The pot is only very small (4x 1.2g). However. The amount using is only very minimum. It is also dependant one the person using and their skin type/skin problem.
I have not used all of this container as of yet, which I have had for a few weeks.

WOULD I RECOMMEND?
Yes, I would. Even though the compact is very small. It does seem like £10 is a high price. I am, however, hoping this will last a good time to provide good value for money. It really also depends on your skin needs. If you have good skin, then its not something to be needed. If you have problematic skin, blemish prone, spots, acne - Then yes, this would certainly be a product that would benefit you.
I do have problematic skin myself. My skin, at times can be very sensitive. I found the correct and perfect from Virgin Vie to be very delicate on my skin. It caused no problems, was very mild whilst providing great coverage. This would suit ALL skin types.
WHERE CAN I BUY?
From Virgin Vie at home only.
Why not even host a Virgin Vie at home party? I have found out, by doing this, all of total party sales of £100 and over, will give you as the host 15% of sales to spend in the catalogue! Not a bad way to get products for free! :)

I tried a few concealers before finding this one. Its perfect for me as I have quite a pale complexion and find that a lot of concealers look ok in the tub but are actually too dark and draw attention to imperfections. In the top section is a concealer pale enough for me to use alone however it has a darker colour which it can be mixed with to suit virtually any skin tone.
I particularly like the green cream as it is designed to reduce the appearance of redness. I suffer from Rosacea, a condition which results in red blotchy areas and this covers it completely.
The purple cream is used to lighten any dark areas so I use this under my eyes, its great if you've had a late night and need plenty of cover up.
The only flaw I have found with the product is that the plastic tub it comes in often breaks so you are left with two concealer pots. I know a few people who have experienced the same problem however I think the quality of the product outweighs this small drawback, I would highly recommend it especially to anyone with uneven skin tone as there is something to cover every problem.
I have been to two virgin vie parties in the past year and bought this concealer at both of them. All of my friends there bought the same concealer and swear by it, as do I - it is amazing! It lasts for ages, so even though it is quite expensive it is well worth the money.
When you open the container, there is a good quality clear mirror at the top, making it perfect to put in your makeup bag so that you can reapply it easily when you are out. The first level is made up of two concealers, which you can combine to suit your skin tone. The second level consists of a green corrector and a lilac shade. The green corrector is used to reduce redness and even out uneven skin tone. The lilac shade is used to lighten and lift your complexion. It is easy to use, just apply to troublesome areas making sure that you avoid the delicate eye area.
The concealer does not come with a concealer brush, so I had to buy one to go with it for hygine reasons, although you can easily use your fingers if you wish. I bought a Clinique concealer brush to use with it for £12.00 from Boots, although you could probably find other brands slightly cheaper. The concealer contains chamomile extract to help soothe troublesome areas, Vitamin E known for its anti-oxidant benefits and rice germ and jojoba oil to protect and moisturise.
The concealer costs £10.00, which could be considered to be a bit expensive, but it does have a lot in the pot so the price is not too bad considering.
The pot itself is circular and dark blue with vie written in the middle of the pot in a square and the packet that it comes in is dark blue with the virgin vie logo. It is simple and classy packaging and the pot looks great.
