Welcome to my new blog, all about cosmetics I use/like/want and anything skin care related. I hope you enjoy and find my posts helpful! ♡ First post, yay!
This post will be a compare and review post for 2 concealers I use.
1) MAC select moisturecover concealer in NW15
2) Missha the style undereye brightener in light beige
I bought both from stores, Missha store and MAC store, you can buy both online, from respective brands` websites and eBay.
☆ Missha concealer is 5,99usd on american Missha webpage and I don`t know how many ml it is, but it`s very similiar to MAC, maybe it has around ~4ml of product. There are only 2 colors to choose from, light beige and medium beige, which is typical for korean brands... they even sell foundations (and bb creams) in one or two shades only).
☆ MAC select moisturecover is 16,50usd, so it`s almost 3 times as expensive as Missha concealer! It contains 5ml of product. There are 15 shades to choose from, so everyone should find their match easily. (Plus if you are lots, ask the sales person at MAC counter, they are all pros with MAC makeup and helpful).
Both concealers are in easy to use tubes with
Swatches on my wrist. (Please notice skin on my wrist is lighter than on my face ;) I have fair-medium skin with yellow undertones). As you can see Missha`s concealer is thick and covers my skin color completely without blending. MAC is watery and see through. Now lets`s blend them into my skin!
MAC concealer is very bright and has light coverage. I think the name they use for Missha`s product would suit it better than "concealer", it should be actually called "brightener" as the coverage is light and it mostly brightens up your skin and makes it more luminous. It doesn`t accentuate "wrinkles". Missha`s concealer completely covers the small green and purple veins on my wrist and doesn`t accentuate small "wrinkles" on my skin. It looks yellow, but on my face it actually perfectly blends with my skin tone, also I use less on my face than in the photo. MAC`s concealer looks too white (I think I might exchange it for a darker shade, I just bought it last week so I still have 14 days to exchange).
OK, so lets sum up the review! I only had the MAC concealer for a couple days, so I might change my mind later, but for now, here`s how I see it.
MAC select moisturecover concealer
price: 4/10 ★★★★☆☆☆☆☆☆
amount of product: 8/10 ★★★★★★★★☆☆
packaging: 10/10 ★★★★★★★★★★
coverage: 4/10 ★★★★☆☆☆☆☆☆
consistency: 5/10 ★★★★★☆☆☆☆☆
comments: this MAC concealer will not cover dark blemishes or undereye circles!! It`s watery and light coverage, you will like it if you want a very natural looking makeup and don`t have a lot to cover up. About it`s moisturizing properties, hmm... I don`t know if it has any. :p Also once I put it over fat moisturizing creme and it rolled into a hot mess and I had to redo my whole makeup :o
buy again? maybe, but don`t think so, want to try a darker shade

MISSHA the style undereye brightener
price: 9/10 ★★★★★★★★★☆
amount of product: 7/10 ★★★★★★★★☆☆
packaging: 10/10 ★★★★★★★★★★
coverage: 9/10 ★★★★★★★★★☆
consistency: 8/10 ★★★★★★★★☆☆
comments: I really like this concealer! It covers my red blemishes and acne scars as well and my under eye shadows, which can be green, red or purple, but this concealer kills them all. ;) Also the consistency is fluid foundation like, but it only means you need very little of the product to cover and look natural! I`d buy it again, if I had a missha store close by...
buy again? would love to!
OVERALL: 8.5/10 ★★★★★★★★⋆☆☆
