When Skincare Met Makeup

-------


We’ve been hooked on Dr. Nicholas Perricone’s No Foundation Foundation since Eva Mendes recommended it to us last year. True story; the Cuban-American actress told us that she swears by the SPF 30 tinted moisturizer that gives you just the right amount of sheer coverage along with a nothing-to-sneeze-at amount of sun protection, and one look at her perfectly even tone was enough of an endorsement to earn the amber glass bottle a permanent spot in our morning product lineup. Now comes news that Dr. P is expanding his universal-pigment, complexion-enhancing offerings with—wait for it—a No Concealer Concealer. When we first received a sample of the vitamin C ester, hyaluronic acid, and neuropeptide-rich salve, which brightens skin, boosts collagen, and minimizes wrinkles in a single sweep, we put it all over our face—a few pigmentation marks here, some broken capillaries there. But the single-shade offering does not work as a spot treatment on everyone, as we quickly learned (editor’s note: the No Concealer Concealer is not quite as universal in color as its full-face predecessor if you have medium-to-dark skin). It does, however, work wonders on the sensitive, typically lighter-hued under-eye area, where it camouflages dark circles while imparting moisture and long-term antiaging benefits. As a bonus, the texture is super-silky, so it doesn’t crease and can double as a primer on lids as well. Fingers crossed the good doctor launches a few more shades so we can start using it on all of our imperfections post-haste.
