Lock-it Concealer

I got the colour medium warm which seems to be rather light on me. But for under the eyes, the shade is actually good. It’s slightly yellow, brightening, quite pigmented but not cakey. It’s a good colour. The wand is quite big, but it grab so little product. So it sort of force me to use little concealer. If I want a proper full face makeup, I will have to dip the wand again for the other side of my face. 

Most of the time, I only used whatever amount was on the wand. It’s such a full coverage that the little amount is enough. I don’t love it, but it’s good enough for me. 

For $40, I don’t think I will repurchase.

Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector

First impression: this is so sticky, but I know it can’t be right cause it’s quite liquidy on top. The jar is so tiny, it’s uncomfortable to use your finger to pick up the product. Also, it’s very shimmery, and blends to dissappear into your skin. I really don’t see the point of this. 

I tried googling this and the review is quite good. So while at Sephora I tried swatching with the display sample. It’s actually very creamy and not sticky at all. It’s also not cakey, the shade quite light on the back of my hand. So it is to be brightening, if the sample I have at home is not melted. 

Second impression: still hard to apply under the eyes. It doesn’t goes on smooth. I tried again with a RT deluxe crease brush. It’s a good side for buffing concealer. Plus the bristles fit the jar, so it’s a win-win. But still it wasn’t good. 

Third impression: by now, the product is clear of any wetness. So it’s a solid cream product. I dip my brush in, applied and behold, my dark circles are gone. For some reason, it just covered the blackness way. So good. I don’t even need to layer on with concealer. It goes on smooth, it covers well, not cakey at all. There is no crease and it just brighten up my undereye. If I don’t set it, it will be left rather shiny. It just had a sheen, it’s the brightening effect. 

A small jar will probably last me a long time. I won’t need to buy the full size. By then, I probably found something new to use. So yes I like it a lot, but I probably won’t buy the full size. 

Rimmel Lasting Finish Concealer

This is suppose to conceal dark circles, imperfections and discolourations. It’s also suppose to last all day. Warm beige is a slight yellow tone concealer. It’s a shade that should be good for anyone with warmer skin tone. When swatched, the colour doesn’t seems to match me very well. But I can get it to blend into the skin. It’s rather thick and sticky. So that’s good for the long lasting claim. But I’m used to easy to blend concealer that this take some time to get used to. 

Maybe if I have the patience, then I can use this with ease. But for now it just annoy me. I also find that if I rub it in, then this will not cover very well. So I don’t really like this. 

Moonshot Dark Spot Concealer – 301

I wanted to try something else from Moonshot. Of course I have to get the concealer. I’m just obsessed with concealers and I’m trying them one brand at a time. I found that the shade 301 once blended in is the perfect shade for me. I want to say that it looked peachy, but it doesn’t really cover my black eyes. Cause when I try to use this under my eye, I still can see the shadow underneath. I still prefer CLIO Kill Cover. (I know I previously said that Clio is not as good for the whole face. But I was wrong. I just got lazy and used it for my whole face. It gave such a good coverage and it brightened up my face whenever I used it.)

This is supposed to be better for under eye concealing. I found that it does a better job covering my spots. I guess cause of the shade; it matched my skin better.

The packaging looks alright but when you hold it feels cheap. The wand feels cheap too as it’s just feel light on the hand. It did pick up the right amount of concealer though so that’s nice. The product consistency is quite thick. It is a medium full coverage. But still show thru for deep dark undereye. Other than that, it gives good coverage; and the best part it’s easy to blend. Surprisingly for a thicker concealer, this blend quite well. So that is what I like about this concealer.

Anyway this is $29 from Sephora. So the price’s alright. I feel the more you use it, the more you will like it.

VOV Cover Pencil 

I regret buying this. It’s a dual ended pencil concealer. But both side is the same. The shade is a bit too light for me. So as a pencil, it’s mostly for spots but the shade doesn’t suit me. This is shade 23, which is their darkest shade I think. Also it just takes forever to cover a spot. I think I just don’t like pencil concealer in general. I find them a little bit too small. So I don’t use this at all. It’s just rotting in my drawer. It isn’t exactly expensive. I think it cost me $6. It’s still a waste though. Oh well. 

CLIO Kill Cover Liquid Concealer

This is one of the most pigmented concealer I have. This is in the shade 4-BO which is still very light for me. It’s a good shade for highlighting. This concealer makes my face very flawless. I guess cause of the pigments and the fact that it’s a light shade. So it just make my face brighter. The best way to apply this is using your fingers. A beauty blender will only make it sheer out which defeat the purpose. 

The other thing I find that this is not a good undereye concealer as it kind of irritate it. So this is not a good all rounder concealer for me. I will still have to use another concealer for whole my face. But CLIO is a brand mostly for fair skin people. So they do not have darker concealer shades. Not sure if this is the darkest, but I see all mostly is this kind of shade. But yea, not bad.  

MUFE HD Concealer

It’s hard trying to find my shade. I finally decide on shade 330. It’s not an exact match, but it works. It’s slightly brightening. Cause the colour is more yellow tone. It’s a thick concealer, that takes awhile to warm up. Once it’s warm, it blends easily. It’s a medium coverage. Doesn’t really covers as well as I hope it will, but it’s alright. 

I bought this cause of the pacakaging. I actually like the packaging. It’s a rubber tip, and you have to twist the bottom for the product to dispense. In theory, it’s a good idea. But reality? The product always jam. It doesn’t dispense until I bend the rubber tip forward. By then, a lot of product has build up and a lot will flow out. 

So it’s a regret buying this. The concealer itself is alright, but I buy this cause of the pacakaging. This is more expensive and is only 1.5ml. They do not have this anymore. They have change he pacakieyinh into the skinny tube. Haven’t try that, so I don’t know if it’s the same product or not. Nonetheless, I still use this. Cause even though it’s not a full coverage, this being slightly lighter than my skin tone, it makes my face wonderfully brighter. So it just makes my skin look quite awake and fresh. So at least there is something good about this in the end. 

Bye Bye Under Eye Corrector Concentrate Cream

I got the shade medium and I bought this at $48 from Sephora. Quite pricy, but I heard this is quite good. The reason I wanted this cause if you buy two It Cosmetics item, you get the free bundle which consist of the mascara and the bye bye under eye concealer. So instead of getting the concealer I got the corrector instead. 

It’s really good. It’s a peachy shade that is perfect at covering under eye dark circles. It’s so good that I’ve been using this almost everyday since the day I got it. I just love how it really covers and brighten up my face. The bad thing is that it doesn’t last as long as I would like it to be. I guess I should probably add on a concealer on top. But really this covers so nicely I don’t feel the need to add on. 

So I give this a 80% rating cause of the fact It doesn’t last as long. But for $48 and only 5ml, I gladly repurchase. 

VOV Face Clear Concealer

The thing about Korean makeup is that the darkest shade is usually no. 23, which sometimes can be too light for me. Like for this, it is a bit too light for me. So this automatic become my undereyes concealer. But I’m lazy, so I use this on my spots too. This blends alright, but if you leave it for too long without blending, it kind of just “harden”. So best to blend after applying. 

It’s smooth and glides on easily. It’s very light on the skin, but once you start blending, it kind of get thicker. So I can say this is quite a medium coverage. Under the eyes, it doesn’t crease. In term of lasting power, it is quite decent. A whole day at work? Yup! If going for dinner a light touch up is necessary. If you don’t care, you don’t have too. 

This is a bit more “waxy” as compare to my Euciren cover stick. This is cheaper too. If this is the right shade, I will probably like this more. But for now, I like them both equally for different purposes. 

the SAEM Tip Concealer

 

I’m a little bit crazy on concealers this year. My face is so bad that all I did and do is – conceal and hide and cover. That’s all synonyms, and that’s the sad truth about my face. My mindset is that I have to try every concealer out there. But first I will get all the affordable ones. This cost me $5. It has a SPF28 and it’s only 1.5g. The picture is quite dark, but the shade is probably a Mac NC25. It’s too light for me. So it’s only good for under the eyes. I think this is in the shade 21. I’m not too sure. 

It’s a medium to full coverage so that’s nice. It dries very fast, so you have to work fast. It leave behind a sheen, so it won’t makes you look flat. I wish it’s in the right shade. But it looks alright. It looks good under my eyes. It covers just enough. I guess cause it’s pigmented, so it does its job. Plus it brighten the area too. That’s a bonus. But if undereyes are too black, this covers, just still can see a bit. 

It can last a good office hours long. At least when I come home, my face doesn’t look as bad. I can see that the concealer is fading, but it still covers a little. This doesn’t crease too. So two thumbs up.
