Hi Darlings, today’s post is going to be the review and swatch of the Essence High Beauty Brightening Concealer.
This line contains hemp seed oil which basically is manufactured from varieties of Cannabis but doesn’t contain significant amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the principal psychoactive element present in the cannabis plant. The oil contains omega 3, omega 6 and linoleic acid that stimulate elastin which makes the skin more beautiful, healthy and elastic.
I’ve never smoked because I’m prone to addiction so I avoid it, but no judgment if you do, the thing is, I got curious about it and when I saw an affordable brand like essence doing a line with Cannabis derivatives I decided to give it a go.
This concealer comes in two shades, I have 02 Peach Beige and you can get it here for about 4$.
The packaging is a thick and relatively small tube in a hard plastic material. The shade name is written on a sticker on the cup. It is really nice and sturdy, I like it.
It has a very classic doe foot applicator that I love, it picks up just the right amount of product and it’s precise.
The shade is very peachy so I like to use it underneath my concealer when I have very dark under-eye to colour correct before applying regular concealer.
It’s really creamy and easy to blend, once it sets it has a natural finish. It has light-medium coverage and it blends seamlessly with your skin.
I haven’t noticed any benefit with the hemp oil addiction, it’s honestly just a good concealer.
I put it on with the applicator e I use a damp sponge but your fingertip will work too.

I really like this concealer (I should say, corrector). I don’t know if the hemp seed oil does something but I like to believe it does so I like that I’m hydrating my under-eye too. The formula is great and the peachy colour makes it perfect to correct dark circles. It works well with my Dior concealer so I will keep using it when I need it. It’s not a necessary product for me but I really like it.
I really hope you guys enjoyed it, don’t forget to like, comment and share to let me know all your thoughts and if you have any question.
