Both Gabriel and Zuzu offer a similar concealer for a similar price, while Zuzu has a broader selection of colors. The ingredient list is identical, so I recommend trying out testers in a retail store and going with whatever is the best match. (Remember to test on the back of your hand, not your face.) This formula rates a moderate 5 on the EWG Skin Deep database, largely due to the use of vitamin A. I suspect this rating is slightly exaggerated, as most of the other ingredients are quite gentle.
The wand applicator is nice for personal use, but a little more challenging to use as a makeup artist. This is because the concealer has to be transferred to a clean hand or palette, and wands don't allow for very much product to be dispensed at a time. The formula for this concealer is fairly light, so it is great for extra coverage after foundation, or worn alone on basic makeup days. However, it isn't quite heavy enough for my under eye area, as I have very dark circles and tend to need a cream corrector there. If you're looking for a light concealer in a vegan and gluten-free formula that you can buy in stores, Gabriel offers a nice selection.
