ReCover Correct and Conceal Red

ReCover is a new make up brand by Annabel Jardella, a professional makeup artist who has over 25 years experience. Using a scar from an old injury, her passion for make up and her expertise she became passionate about erasing colours on the skin such as: under eye circles, redness and even tattoos. With the creation of ReCover, which is described as being the next generation concealer, I was delighted to give it a try.

I have redness on both cheeks, (it isn't Rosacea) but it tends to flare up when I am not feeling run down or am stressed and I can usually cover it fairly easily using a few correct and conceal products but there is always a need to re-apply later in the day. ReCover, which has 6 different shades to try, is what I can best describe as being a really super fine concealer which contains rich pigments to cover any red in the skin and what I mean by that is that when you apply it to the skin, it doesn't cling to any dry patches, it isn't cakey or gloopy it is totally lightweight and gives an almost flawless coverage. It comes in a handy little pump like pen dispenser with a soothing gold-plated applicator tip, which makes the application easy and perfect for using it on-the-go to ‘re-cover’ any red patches that you may need to.  My one issue with concealers is that no matter which one I have used, they cake under my eyes, which is often where I need coverage, so ive given up looking for one which works - until now.


ReCover Red works amazingly well to conceal my redness, I am just so impressed with it. I’ve found it to blend really well over the top of any liquid foundations which at the minute I am using either ByTerry or Too Faced and it also works well underneath just a powder foundation, so depending on your preference, I have found it works really well for me. When using this, I always apply after my skincare routine and after adding my primer. As mentioned, the texture is really lightweight and easy to blend, my preferred method in this case is to use the applicator and then dab using my ring finger for under eye coverage and on my cheeks, where the redness is, again use the gold applicator and then smooth using my blending sponge to ensure I get equal coverage or if I am in a hurry, I just use my fingers.

As this has a pump dispenser it is really easy to ensure you get just the right amount, for me, on slight pump dispenses enough to cover the redness on both cheeks, but if you don't like the dispenser and I know some of my friends don't, then you can pump it onto a make up brush and apply it that way, it works just as well, but for me, I prefer the coolness of the applicator under my eyes.

Ive been using this since December, which is quite a long time for me to use a product like a concealer as I usually get annoyed with them and end up chucking them in the bin.  Having used it at least 3-4 days a week, it is still going which for a 5ml product is quite impressive, so yes a little does go a long way and at £28 it would need to.  As a product though, it is more than worth the price and it is something I intend to repurchase because it does what I want to do with regards to my redness, it lasts all day and I don't need to apply, it doesn't cake, it isn't gloopy, it doesn't cling to dry skin patches and it works well with foundation be it liquid or powder form, both of which I use.  

So if you suffer from redness, blemishes or imperfections like I do, then I would definitely give ReCover a try, it is worth its weight in gold.

Have you found a concealer that is worth its weight in gold?

  1. This sounds great! I've always had issues with spots and 2 pregnancies in 2 years have left my skin in quite bad condition. If something is worth the money I don't mind spending extra xx
