by Bionic Beauty on 05.Feb.2010 · 22 comments

Want to know what I absolutely ADORED in 2009? I’ve gone through every skin care item, makeup product, trend, and ounce of hair care that I tested, or discovered, over the past year and came up with Bionic’s Second Annual “Best of Beauty” awards. And just for fun, I included some stuff at the end that’s not beauty related, ’cause you know… we’ve got to keep it balanced!

Redpoint’s NOC Out concealer compact

I received the NOC Out Cover-Up Compact by RedPoint Cosmetics in my first BeautyFix package.  I’m always up for trying a new concealer…

Bionic Beauty reviews Redpoint NOC Out Cover-Up Compact

Bionic puts RedPoint's NOC Out Concealer compact to the test.

NOC Out Pros

  • A yellow shade to correct red toned problems (Red Guard), a salmon colored concealer to cancel out dark spots or pigmentation issues (Redpoint calls this “Spot Cover”), and Eye Disguise which is a beige to cover under-eye circles and even out eye area.
  • The cover up *really* works! This compact gets rave reviews from consumers and online & print beauty editors (myself included now!). No creasing, no caking, it stays put and does everything promised.
  • Packaging is sleek and sturdy, with a nice sized mirror to actually make touchups easy to accomplish.

NOC Out Cons

  • Only available in one set of shades (shown in my photo), so darker skinned or olive toned gals are not going to have much luck with this compact.
  • Price. In this economy $38 is a bit pricey. Since I heart elf’s concealer bigtime, I’d rather spring for all their shades ($1 each at e.l.f. Cosmeticself cosmetics) and make my own “palette”.

The NOC Out Cover-Up Compact is available at Redpoint’s own website for $38.

Have you tried the NOC Out compact? What were your results?
