There’s no valuable makeup essential in your beauty arsenal like a good concealer. The perfect formula holds up against humidity, sweat, water…you name it. It can also effortlessly camouflage dark circles, neutralize redness and bumpiness, and banish any residual traces of last night’s spicy margaritas.
But finding that perfect (skin-loving and dark spots nixing) concealer can be as tricky as it is to preserve your purse at a Sephora Black Friday Sale. Lucky for you (and us), Kosas, the dominant leader in the ‘your-skin-but-better’ makeup department, recently launched a concealer that promises to load up your skin with nourishing ingredients that’ll leave you with a gorgeous, healthy, and shimmery glow.
Keep scrolling to learn more about it. Psssttt…you might want to get your card ready, too, because word on the TikTok streets is that this concealer will be sold out soon.
Inspired by the glow you get from a vitamin-rich I.V. drip, this new Kosas skin enhancer delivers a soft, reflective, and healthy glow that’ll get you noticed wherever you go. Loaded with nourishing ingredients such as VitaGlow-D Botanical Complex, algae extract, and glutathione, you’ll notice more hydrated skin, too.
The formula is a sheer glowy gel that can be used as a primer, targeted highlighter, or mixed into makeup for a sexy, mix-in glow. It also comes in 10 shades, from Revive (very light champagne) to Recharge (a cute deep tan) and Reflect (a rich deep bronze).
And like all Kosas products, Glow I.V. is cruelty-free, hypoallergenic, non-acnegenic, and safe for sensitive skin types.
Kosas Glow I.V Skin Enhancer not only adds a sexy sparkle to your complexion. It is also packed with skin-loving nutrients that’ll help you maintain that glow. It includes ingredients such as:
VitaGlow-D Botanical Complex – according to Kosas, this is the element responsible for that dewy, IG-worthy glow. It triples skin hydration and enhances luminosity, so you’ll look like you have the glow goddess’ number on your speed dial.
Algae Extract – whiteheads, scabby old pimples, and angry cysts shouldn’t give you the shivers anymore because the Kosas algae extract’s got you. Loaded with natural peptides and amino acids, the ingredient deeply moisturizes, blasts hyperpigmentation, and protects against sun damage. The result? Hydrated, brighter, and blemish-free skin.
Glutathione – if you want youthful, seemingly flawless skin, glutathione is your best bet. Dosed with antioxidants, the element helps brighten, diminish acne scars, even skin tone, and tackle free radical damage.
How To Use It
Formulas like this can be slightly confusing – is it a primer? A highlighter? Or a skin tint? The answer is all of the above. It is a versatile beauty product that allows you to glow how you like or customize it according to your preferences.
So, to achieve an all-over glow, the brand recommends applying Glow I.V. on moisturized skin using your fingers or a damp blender sponge.
For a mix-in glow, blend the Kosas concealer with your foundation or favorite serum and apply with your fingers or damp blender sponge.
For a sexy, targeted glow, Kosas recommends applying foundation and concealer and then using Glow I.V. for a sultry highlight where the light naturally hits – the bridge of the nose, brow bones, cupid’s bow, and high points of the cheeks.
