Review: I wanted a new conceal and had decided to go for Skinfood and this particular concealer targets the dark under eye circle. Bought this off eBay for £5.75 plus free shipping. It took around 2-3 weeks to get to the UK as this was shipped from South Korea. Bought this in shade 1 as there are only 2 shades available.

As you can see from my before and after pictures, it does wonders! The concealer is salmon colour with an orange and yellow hue. It’ll neutralise the blue and purple undertones in the dark circles. It gives a medium to full coverage depending on how much you use. You’ll only require a small amount to get good coverage as it is very pigmented. It’ll also brighten the skin around the eyes and will make you look more awake. It is buildable to get more coverage. Of course there is a limit as to what buildable is but you’ll be able to see. It doesn’t settle into fine lines or crease.

This product needs to be set with powder otherwise it won’t last since and will slide. It is creamy and contains salmon oil to help the creamy consistency and it has benefits too such as moisturising. When set, it has a good last power, around 6-8 hours. This won’t dry your under eye skin which I have always feared. The consistency glids onto your skin easily, making it easy to blend to avoid tugging the delicate skin due to the warmth of the skin. I would recommend using your fingertips to apply this rather than a concealer brush. Some people may not like this product as they may think it is really oily. Stay away if you aren’t keen on oily products. If you’re wondering, there isn’t any fishy scent to this. It’s more like a neutral make up smell?

You get 10g in this product which is a lot and will last you a long time. Great for the price too. Packing is cute as with all of their other products. The down side to this is the limited shades as of all the other asian products. This is my to go product if I’m in a hurry or too lazy to wear foundation (which is nearly everyday lol). This is my HG concealer.

    What shade are u using ? And what shade is the most applicable for those who have fair skin ? Because I bought shade 2, it might not fit my skintone.

    Is this also applicable to be a face concealer? Or hides other skin imperfections?

    Great review; I recently bought this myself after reading your review. However, I'm having trouble applying it. I try patting it in but that just leaves "pat" marks behind. Can you give me any hints on how to apply it?

      hmmm, i always get some product on my ring finger to warm up the product. sometimes i use the hair dryer to heat it up on my finger to make the concealer blend better if the product is still a bit stiff. i heat it up for a few seconds. i use this under foundation so the foundation will cover the the pat marks. could always use a concealer brush if that helps
