Hynt Beauty Duet Perfecting Concealer Review

Hello loves,


Today I am so glad to present you with the review of my The Most Favorite Concealer Ever. I am so in love with it that I do not to live a day without it, it is seriously the best stuff, natural or not! When I transitioned to green beauty a few years ago, the hardest struggle for me was to find the natural concealer that works, all the others I have tried prior (or after) to Hynt Beauty one have been disappointing to say the least, they all were too sheer in coverage, did nothing at concealing dark under eye circles (does that not defeat their purpose?) and were gone in a matter of an hour. When I discovered this beauty I felt like I hit the jackpot, it was definitely "Thank You Green Beauty Gods" moment! I never want to be without it :) Where do I start? It is all natural, crazy pigmented, brightens and conceals even darkest under eyes (hello, me!) like no one's business. I don't know if you noticed the amount of product on the little spatula in the photo above, but that is all you need to conceal both under eyes and other blemishes on your face, believe me when I say it is truly crazy pigmented. You definitely need a light hand with it as it is easy to apply too much. Any more than that pin prick amount and you can do your whole face with it, and by that I mean I sometimes use it as a full face foundation if I need a seriously good coverage and other products don't work for me. If you will use it as a foundation, you need to set it with powder though, but as an under eye concealer I don't set it, and it does last on it's own for hours on end. Truly wonderful product. In fact I already reviewed it a year or so ago comparing it to the natural version of CoverFx drops foundation, when it was called Christopher Drummond (and the packaging was different too) so it is fair to say it is a long standing favorite of mine that stood the test of time. Us bloggers are easily swayed, and when the new hot product comes onto the scene my curiosity is piqued, so I have tried a few well know concealers after this, but nothing is as good as this beloved product and I decided not to cheat on it ever again. Other concealers either didn't have the coverage or didn't last, and both counts are very important factors for me, as I am the girl who never carries any products for touch ups during the day. In fact if the product needs reapplication during the day, it is not good in my eyes, I think products not only have to be natural, but also WORK! And thanks goodness this delivers on both counts!
The ingredients are jam packed with healing nourishing beautiful oils like avocado oil, cupuacu seed butter as well as aloe vera leaf, so not only it does conceal, but also balances, calms and soothes irritated sensitive skin. I can attest to that, my skin is uber sensitive and prone to dermatitis, and I had zero problems with this product, so I can safely recommend it to my readers with less than perfect skin, and of course to anyone else too :) Do not hesitate to try this product, I have used it when my dermatitis was at it's worst and it worked fine, did not cause any irritations at all, in fact the opposite is true, it soothed and calmed the skin. If you are not sure of your shade, or just want to sample first, you can do so, they sell samples of many if not all of their products, including this concealer.

Ingredients:
Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Tri-Isostearlyl Citrate, Acacia Decurrens/Jojoba/Sunflower seed wax, Hydrogenated Jojoba Oil, Ricinus Communis (Castor) seed oil, , Stearalkonium Hectorite, Propylene Carbonate, Tocopherol, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E-natural preservative), Oleic Acid, Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf extract, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) oil, Boron Nitride, Theobroma Grandiflorum (Cupuacu) Seed butter. May contain: Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491,77492, 77499).

I am in the shade Light, and it is my perfect shade, in summers I don't tan much, so it does not become too light for me, but if you do tan, I would suggest sampling first to get the idea about the shades. I should also mention that it might crease a little bit, but only if you apply too much. In fact I only heard of other bloggers saying it creases, it never did so for me, because I use the teeny tiny amount of it, and you will need to play around a bit to get your balance just right. Now it comes in a glass jar complete with a little spatula, I really like that they thought of it, as I would feel a bit funny just dipping fingers into the product, you don't want bacteria and germs contaminating your beautiful make up! It is a vegan and cruelty free product, all their products are, as well as gluten free (perfect for me!) and they don't use any irritants or dyes whatsoever, in fact, they list all of their ingredients clearly on their website, so please feel free to peruse them here and you can judge for yourself. Oh, and it does come with 7 grams of product, which is plenty, it should last you at least a year if not more using daily. so it is amazing value for money.

Hynt Beauty is an amazing US company that only uses natural and non GMO ingrediets (see their website here), but they offer free shipping for any international orders above $99, which is a fair deal, you might get a shopping buddy and both get their discovery kits for example? Discovery kit comes with a full size of Duet Perfecting Concealer and a few of other products in deluxe sample sizes as well as the softest mini buki brush, I think it is great value, and you are getting plenty of mineral foundations and finishing powders to see if you will like them or not. Psst, the review of their discovery kit is to come shortly :) I emailed them to ask about any EU retailers, a little bird in Instagram told me this brand is available in some spa in Norway, I am waiting for the reply to see whether it's true or not.


So that is all for now, I think I covered all the grounds I wanted, but if you have any questions on it, please feel free to ask and I will be happy to answer :)
By the way whilst in the middle of this review I got an inspiration to create this Polyvore set, yes, that is how my mind works, hope you will enjoy!


Lots of love,
Renata.

  1. Hi Renata!

    I´m interested in this product, I have eczema, and this was recommended, and your review on it seems great as well! Only but is the price of the delivery, did you ever get an email back from them about retailers in EU?

    Thanks,
    Anni
