Sometimes you meet a beauty product that can, honestly, do it all. The holy grail. And I’m happy to intro you to your new eye brightening, dark circle eradicating, lifted face obsession: Wander Beauty Dualist Matte & Illuminating Concealer. But I’m also sorry to say the world has caught on, too, as it’s nearly sold out in every single store—it’s that brilliant that no one can keep it in stock.
Launched in early 2017, the Dualist Concealer is double-sided: One end is a full-coverage matte concealer stick, and on the other end is a lightweight, illuminating liquid.
What makes it great is the duality of each product and how it works in perfect, undetecting unison on the skin. The illuminator goes on first, it is meant to give a “lift” to the under eye. But don’t stop there, this baby is full face, you can dab around the nose and chin and cheeks, anywhere with redness or dark spots.
Also, a pro tip this illuminator is perfect for plumping your lips—no really. Makeup artists have been doing this little trick forever: line and blend the liquid highlighter end around your mouth, it immediately makes lips look fuller and plumper, and keeps lipstick inside the lip line, too.
And if that wasn’t already enough, it’s also doubles as a really subtle, gorgeous highlighter. Apply to cheekbones, brow bones, and inner eye for a radiant boost.
Once you’ve highlighted, cover up any dark circles with the concealer stick end. It’s a full coverage concealer that blends completely effortlessly, yet is crease-proof. And is thick enough to really cover up blemishes and dark spots, too.
If that already wasn’t enough, the skin-loving formula is enriched with aloe vera to soothe and nourish, collagen to improve firmness, and vitamin E to help block free radicals for healthier looking skin.
It’s so magical that almost all the retailers that sell it are currently out of stock. If you hurry, Sephora and Wander’s site have a few colors still in stock currently, but I’m told that they’re running low. Don’t worry though, Wander tells us that they’ll fully be back in stock before the end of March. And they’ll soon be expanding the color range to assure that all gorgeous skin tones can be lit-from-within.
Can’t wait to the end of March to try it? There are a couple dupes that can (nearly) match the Dualist brilliance. Maybe give IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Eyelift In A Tube ($29) a try, it has the highlighter and concealer in a dual-ended tube. Or Charlotte Tilbury Mini Miracle Eye Wand ($45) is beloved for its ability to mimic 8 hours of sleep in 30 seconds; one half is an eye tightening cream, the other half is an illuminating concealer.
