Chanel Correcteur Perfection Long Lasting Concealer Review



I have been blogging for quite some time now, and even before I was blogging I was an avid reader of beauty blogs, and over all of that time, I have never seen anybody talk about this Chanel Concealer. I was stood at the Chanel beauty counter one day buying my restock of my Chanel No5 and I saw it and swatched it and it looked really good, so I decided to pick one up. It just intrigued me that nobody seems to talk about this and I wanted to know if I had found myself a little hidden gem, or if there was a reason why this people don’t tend to mention this concealer. I have only had good experiences in the past when it comes to Chanel makeup, so I couldn’t wait to try this out properly.


As normal, I bought this concealer not only to hide the darkness underneath my eyes, but I also use it to highlight with. And because I do use a concealer not only to conceal my darkness, but to highlight my face, I want my concealer to have a high level of pigmentation, but also feel nice on the skin. Recently I have been pegging everything against the Nars Soft Matte Concealer, Tarte Shape Tape Concealer and my old favourite the Urban Decay Naked Weightless Concealer. If anything can come close to them, then they are a winner in my book!


As some of you may already know, especially if you have seen my blog before, but I am obsessed with base products. I would always rather spend my money on foundations and concealers than anything else, probably because to me, the sun damage and pigmentation on my face is my biggest issue that I like to try and cover. So, when I started to use this concealer, I couldn’t help but compare it to some other concealers that I have in my collection. Anyway, let me get onto the review…
The first thing that I noticed about this concealer when I started to use it was just how creamy and blendable it was. Just a swatch on the back of your hand and you can tell that this is going to be a lovely and creamy concealer. I have tried many concealers over the years that have claimed to be creamy including the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer, and I will say that this one feels much creamier, especially when you are applying it underneath the eyes and because of this it takes next to no blending to get it to sit really nice into the skin. I can use a Beauty Blender or a brush with this concealer and it consistently looks really stunning and perfecting.


I would say that the coverage of this concealer is a medium finish. I tend to go in nice and light under my eyes to start with so that I don’t go overboard (as I have been known to do this from time to time). Then when I want more coverage, I will just go in as and when I need it. I find that the medium is enough coverage for everyday use, I don’t always need the kind of intensity that the Tarte Shape Tape gives. I have built this concealer up in the areas that I need it, such as in the inner corner of my eye where I can get extremely dark and it builds up the coverage really nicely and just leaves my skin looking super flawless.
When I set this concealer with powder it just really locks it into place. I have noticed that this does slightly settle into the fine lines around my eyes, but most concealers do to be very honest. It isn’t anything extreme though and I am the only person who would ever notice it. It wears really nice throughout the day, even at the sides of my nose where I get quite oily, it doesn’t break up and it just stays really pretty all-day long. I have found myself really reaching for this concealer when I want a very natural but perfected makeup look. I tend to just throw on a crème foundation and then this concealer and I feel like my base is good to go. Nice, lightweight and incredibly comfortable for all day!

If you haven’t tried this concealer I would say to just go into a store and give it a go. It applies so nicely and looks pretty all-day long. Make sure to leave me a comment down below and let me know what your favourite concealer is for everyday use!

  1. oooh you're so right, I've never seen any beauty bloggers talking about this! So many do reviews on the foundation but never the concealer! I love the sound of it, the fact that it's blendable and lasts all day sounds great. I usually go for a high coverage concealer, but I suppose a medium finish that is buildable would be good to try too! Great review xx

  2. I was mentally adding this to my wishlist until you said that it settles into fine lines - that's a no-no or me! xx

    1. Smooth it out with a beauty blender and then set with powder and it is good to go though!

  3. I don't know, I feel like I couldn't justify the price as there are so many concealers I like that are so much less in price, but there is no harm in trying it out in store. I will definitely enquire about it next time I walk by the counter, thanks for sharing. I haven't heard anyone talk about this either, hope you are having an ace weekend xxx
