LORAC Double Feature is a concealer/highlighter duo that comes with an unusual “hygienic blender ball.” Since I thought this blender ball business sounded a bit gimmicky (but intriguing : ), I thought I’d give it a closer look.
Fitted into the cap of the concealer, the blender ball is a simple rollerball like the ones you find on lipglosses. Unlike rollerball lipgloss, however, Double Feature’s rollerball does not dispense any product. Instead, it’s intended to be used for blending in your concealer. So does it actually work?
Yes, it does — and surprisingly well. To use the blender ball, you simply smudge on some of the concealer and then gently roll the ball over the concealer until it’s fully blended. While the roller ball isn’t as efficient as a concealer brush when it comes to getting into those really hard-to-reach areas (like directly beneath your bottom lashes), it’s an excellent alternative to using your finger.
The ball’s rolling motion works to quickly and gently smooth and blend the concealer without risking the unnecessary tugging and pulling that might happen when you apply concealer with your finger.
As for the stick concealer itself, it comes in three shades and offers smooth, full, long-wearing coverage that will work on a wide range of skin tones. Furthermore, the concealer resists creasing and should work well for all skin types except those with extremely dry skin (in which case, just be sure to apply your heavy duty eye cream ; )
In addition to the excellent concealer, the highlighter-half of the Double Feature duo is also praise-worthy. Beautifully silky and blendable, the highlighter offers gorgeous, sparkle-free illumination in a light, but moisturizing, liquid that’s easily blended onto browbones, cheekbones and the corners of your eyes. It also works beautifully when blended with lipgloss.
Since the highlighter does have a moisturizing formula, it may not last very long and will probably require touch-ups if you have oily skin. Nevertheless, it’s great stuff and I highly recommend it.
