Hearts/Farts: Missha Perfect Concealer

With what seems to be how I start most of my reviews, I did not need another concealer. I was just dilly-dallying around the Missha counter at Landmark, excited about ‘discovering’ it there. But there’s danger in dilly-dallying… I went home with this in tow.

Let me talk about the texture, first. The Perfect Concealer is wonderfully bouncy and quite mousse-y yet still pigmented and thick. And I’m saying this in comparison to MAC Studiofinish Concealer (in almost similar packaging/presentation) which is hard (and would cause me to drag on my skin too much while blending). Because it’s such, I find it a joy to apply with my fingers, it sits right on top of the skin, ever so slightly, effectively masking discolorations. Some concealers blend too much, thus still exposing the thing I wanted to hide in the first place!

Next point is the shadeβ€”the Missha counter had two colors available for this concealer variant, one light and one medium. The thing that I realized was that I should just try to get a concealer that matches my coloring rather than get a lighter one (as is customary). You know why? It ends up looking more natural and not like I tanned with my sunglasses on! And more to the point, I realized that I don’t really want for the darker areas of my face to disappear completely (lest I appear like a blank piece of paper). I think the shadows and the kinks give the face character or maybe definition, in a sense. So I wouldn’t want to mess so much with them.

But anyway, this concealer still manages to conceal quite well, as you can see in these photos, applied over a European version of the Garnier BB Cream (which is up for review, I know, I know!). I just lightly dab on my under eyes and the sides of my nose. I like doing it that way coz I get a more skin-like finish, rather than smoothing it out too much like plaster. It’s still skin anyway, not cement.

Lastly, you’ll get a decent wear and coverage out of this, specially when set with any sort of powder. I heart this, even more so than my MAC Studiofinish. I love the even, budge-proof, undetectable finish and all for cheap; I’m impressed! Although I don’t use it daily as I rarely go for very finished looks, but it’s nice to have this in my kit. It would be useful for yours too.
