Review Overview

This cream-to-powder concealer comes in a small jar and has a thick texture that offers medium to full coverage. The texture drags a bit when blending and you must make sure to smooth it completely so it doesn't cake into fine lines. The shades cover fair to tan skin tones, but watch out for the Wheat shade, which is a tad orange-y.

All Covered Up Concealer contains oak extract, a known skin irritant, not a skin helper, and alcohol is listed, too. Despite this bit of bad news, neither of these ingredients is present in a high enough concentration to be much cause for concern, but they're not welcome additions.

Stranger yet, is the "WARNING: DO NOT USE IN LIP AREA" on the packaging. You're much better off shopping for the concealers on our Best Concealers list.

  • Medium to full coverage for dark circles and brown spots.
  • Thick creamy texture drags across skin.
  • Can end up looking cakey.
  • Oak extract isn't a skin-friendly ingredient.
Brand Overview

Sonia Kashuk At-A-Glance

Strengths: Affordable and widely available (though exclusive to Target stores); good makeup remover; the makeup is still the star attraction, with impressive options for foundation, powder, blush, lip color, eyeliner and especially makeup brushes.

Weaknesses: The concealers, eye pencil, and brow shapers are a letdown; the makeup palettes may seem convenient, but several of the included products perform poorly.

Perhaps best known for her years of work with supermodel Cindy Crawford, makeup artist Sonia Kashuk's well-chosen selection of makeup has been available exclusively at Target stores since the mid-1990s.

 Kashuk's brushes have been a strong point, and now that they've been redone they're better than ever, and still affordable. This is definitely a makeup collection worth visiting, and you'll find some premium options among Kashuk's powder foundation, regular powders, and blush. Several other products, from foundation to lipsticks, are also worthy of attention, though this is not a line that caters to darker skin tones. Ironically, it's the latest cosmetic products that met with the most critical reviews, largely due to poor execution or their gimmicky nature.

Note: Sonia Kashuk products are also available at select Bloomingdales locations in New York and California. The company also maintains freestanding stores in New York and New Jersey.
