REVIEW:
Luscious Studio Secret concealer comes in a black brush-pen form. Total product quantity is of 2.3ml.
This concealer comes in a total of five shades. I have this concealer in the lightest shade i.e. shade number 1. For the reference I am around NC 25 with neutral undertones. Although I selected this shade for myself online so it was risky, but it suited my skin tone perfectly. 
Initially, we have to twist the lower area of the concealer brush-pen multiple times till you see the product coming out on the brush. Thereafter, a single twist is enough to get the product. 
This concealer has become my HG concealer! I was surprised to see the results. Honestly, I wasn't expecting much from this. I usually wear this concealer during the day time & knowing the current weather conditions of Karachi, this concealer stayed put on my skin for a good four to five hours without oxidising or smudging or wearing off. Although through these four five hours I sweat too but this didn't come off. It does not settle in to skin creases either. Makes my under eye area bright. One thing I would want to mention here is that I don't have severe dark circles, I have mild-moderate under eye dark circles and this concealer perfectly conceals & brightens my under eye area.
I wouldn't agree with the claim that it completely erases the blemishes and dark spots, however it does blur blemishes on my face. I have a few acne marks on my skin and a dark patch near my lips & when applied there it blurs them out & hence evens the skin tone. 

For very dark patches or severe under eye circles I'd recommend you to use a corrector first and then apply this concealer on the top to even out the skin.
The best way to wear this concealer is, to wear it with your pressed/compact face powder. After putting the concealer, top it off with your face compact powder. This will not only increase the staying power of the concealer but will keep it secured in place.
One thing which turns me off is that this concealer brush pen gets really messy while applying so you have to be very careful & patient while working with it.

Price & Availability: It is worth 925Pkr or US $9.28
In Karachi this can be bought from Luscious Kiosk at the Scentsation, Dolmen Mall Clifton, Karachi. Or you can also buy it from Agha's, Naheed Store, Ebco at The Forum. 
You can also buy this online from Luscious Cosmetics website, here.

Points in favour:

  • Packaging is travel friendly. Can always carry it with you in your bag.
  • This concealer stays put for a good four-five hours. Can stay even longer.
  • Does not come off with sweat. 
  • Transfer resistant.
  • Instantly brightens the under eye area 
  • Conceals mild-moderate under eye dark circles.
  • Blurs the acne marks, blemishes & dark spots.
  • Comes in five different shades to choose from.
  • Easily available.
  • Super affordable.
Points not in favour:
  • Brush pen can be a bit messy while applying.
My Verdict:
If you're looking for an affordable, daily wear concealer then this will be a good buy. For the price it comes in it works amazingly!
