A Surprise from My Mom: Manual Override Concealer




My mom is a huge fan of QVC and happened to see the launch of Jay Manuel's (of America's Next Top Model) makeup line, Manual Override Comestics, and had the urge to buy me something.

She ordered me the "Manual Override Conceal," which arrived in the mail today. It's a nice sized tube. I put a dab of it on a blemish on my face and so far I am pretty impressed. The formula is creamy yet light and does deliver coverage. It should be applied after you put on your foundation.

Then I really decided to put it to the test. According to the brochure that came with the concealer, this product can conceal dark circles, age spots, freckles, and anywhere you have uneven skin-tone. Plus, the conceal should last all day (we'll see about that) and does not settle into lines, wrinkles, and pores. I used the formula to cover up my freckles, as you can see above in the before and after. What do you think of the results? Certainly not a miracle serum, but also not too shabby for $19!

  1. I think it did a good job =) 'cause your dark circles aren't dark anymore xD but it didn't affiliate on your nose that well :S did you put moisturizer on your face? maybe it's just because of "dry skin spots" on your nose :)

  4. Wow, the concealer gives great coverage, better than Erase Paste by Benefit. I would definitely give it a try myself as I am impressed. I love your freckles, don't cover them up!

  5. I can't help but to notice that when your take your photos that far away from your face, you look like a muppet specifically GONZO! But it does work for you...the product, not the photo!

  7. I've used Manual Override Conceal for about 1 1/2 yrs. Would NOT want to be without it. It was unavailable for a bit. Boy, did I panic!
