My Top 3 Fave : Under Eye Corrector

I am saying this & I am saying this again. I have dark circles problem & before I thought just applying an ordinary concealer is enough but I was wrong. It always end up sinking into fine lines or being very cake-y after setting it with powder or worse having a raccoon eye which ugh... doesn't look good. When I learned about applying corrector, I thought it would just be the same result like before but boy, I was wrong. I got a brighter complexion as if I had a wonderful beauty rest!  
Here are my Top 3 Fave Corrector - all drugstore! Which I have done each one of them a blog post. Just click the name of the corrector.

All of the 3 correctors have the same peachy shade but the SkinFood leans more lighter undertone. While Pixi & City Color leans more peachy shade but City Color is a slight bit darker.

Do watch out for more of my Top Fave :) Thank you for reading my post.

SkinFood Salmon Brightening Eye Cream Review

Corrector plays a major part in the steps of doing makeup because, from the word, it corrects the uneven skin tone of an individual. It cancels out discoloration in your face that depends on what color you want to cancel out. There are a lot of beauty brands that sells corrector concealers one of them (which is one of my wishlist) that started it all is the Bobbi Brown Corrector. But I must admit, I am one of those person which doesn't want to spend much money just to buy a concealer, it's not yet on my price point. Thankfully, there are other drugstore brands that sells their own version of correctors & one of them is SkinFood which is a Korean brand that is available pretty much in every malls here in the Philippines. 
Before I bought this, I Googled for reviews & swatches & most reviews said that this is an alternative to Pixi Correction Concentrate corrector that is not yet available here that I was itching to buy during that time. 

Packaging : It comes in a small glass like jar with a gold color lid.

The shade leans more of a lighter peach. I did a comparison with Pixi Correction Concentrate, you can check my swatches of the two in this post.

Overall, I love this product. It's creamy & the right shade for my skintone & I believe to all skintone. Thick enough but not too thick to sink into fine lines. A little goes a long way with this product. 

So, did you try this corrector? What do you think?

Thanks for dropping by!

Missha Signature Extreme Cover Concealer Swatches & Review

Ever since I was a child, my biggest problem are my dark, dry under eye circles. When I started doing makeup, I learned about concealers but a lot of them that I've used ended up so thick & sinks on my lines that it become so cakey after setting them with a setting powder. Before the day ends, I saw dry patches of concealers under my eyes which is not good! After trying & testing so many concealers finally, I have found one of my favorites. I saw this from one of my favorite beauty guru applying it on her dark under eyes. 

Packaging : Comes in a small transparent glass like square jar with a gold colored cap.

The name of Missha's concealer is painted on one side of the glass like jar.

Net weight : 10 g . My shade is # 21 which is the lightest shade available & I think it is.

When you open the cap, another plastic like cover seen before you can see the product.

That's what it looks like when you open the cover.

The texture is smooth & consistency is a little bit thick, just apply a little amount on your under eye using your ring finger, so, a little goes a long, long way guys.

The shade is more yellow undertone & it's smooth upon swatching. I don't have a problem with the product sinking in the lines on my under eyes & the more you blend with your ring fingers in a dabbing motion the more it softens & glides smoothly across the area under your eyes.

A closer look on the swatch.

Also, did I mention the cap has a beautiful flower shape like? But if you look more closely, it's just hearts being put together. How lovely is that? It has a touch of a feminine side don't you think?

Thank you for dropping by!

Celeteque Acne-Clearing Concealer Swatches & Reveiw

These past few days in the late summer, my face had gone through a lot of blemish & red spot. Though concealer are good in covering them up but then, I need those with some beneficial ingredients that help to dry them more quickly. A few weeks ago, i come across online an acne solution concealer stick. This is one of the hauls that I bought from BeautyMNL . There was a BOGO sale last time from the website when I bought this. 

Packaging : The product comes in a pencil like package.
Upon looking at the package it reminds me of the discontinued Maybelline Pure Concealer Blemish Stick which contains an active ingredient of 2% Salicylic Acid! Though, this had been long gone discontinued you can still hunt this down on Ebay or Amazon but with a higher price.

I did have one of the Maybelline Pure Concealer once, I was so happpy about it, it really helps me when I have blemishes. A 2 in 1 combo - a concealer & an acne treatment. So, I can use this when applying makeup. There's a fast result on my blemishes. It's just so disappointing that it's discontinued. Maybelline, yes you, shouting to bring it back! I haven't seen any drugstore concealer brands that manufactures acne treatment concealers.

Net Weight : 250mg

At the back of the overall package are the ingredients listed but sad to say, the one ingredient that I am looking for & which should be active is Salicylic Acid which is a great ingredient in fighting acne prone skin & good for sensitive skin too!

It's a twisted automatic pencil concealer that you don't need to sharpen which is good. The downside is that there's only one (1) shade available.

After swatching a couple of times, I find that the product is so dry that there's tugging of your skin when you apply it directly. Since only one shade available, it's not suitable for all skin types. Honestly, I wouldn't recommend this. Aside it's only one shade, the texture is dry, not creamy & with a net weight of 250mg it's not worth of your money because if by estimation that you're using this every single day, it would only take you for a very short time to finish this. Also, a possibility of breakage too!

Catrice Coverstick Concealer Swatches & Review

I must admit, my skin doesn't look good all the time. There are times when I am having a very bad blemish face & that even a full coverage foundation won't cover them & that's sucks right? I've been hunting for a drugstore concealer because the one I've been using is a slight higher price. So, when I saw that Catrice Cosmetics have one that have same function as the one I have right now I got curious & bought one to test it out.

Packaging : Comes in a flesh colored stick form.

Net Weight : 3 g / 0.10 oz.

Before I continue let me give you a brief background. Catrice Cosmetics is a European brand specifically in Germany that markets mostly to more adult/mature women. A sister company to Essence Cosmetics who targets to more teenagers. Both of these brand are owned by Cosnova Beauty established by Christina Oster-Daum in 2001, a cruelty free brand.

I have also twisted the base of the concealer to its extent just to show you how much quantity of the concealer that you're getting.

What I have is the lightest shade available. Here, as you can see when blended it has a medium coverage & it has a little peachy undertone.

I love, love it! How about you? Have you tried Catrice Concealer Stick?

Tony Moly Cover Pot Concealer Face Mix Swatches & Review

There are a lot of concealers these days that you find in your local store or online. Like other products like foundation, blushes, bronzers and even lipstick, you will have a hard time finding a correct concealer for your under eye. Each person have different shades of dark under eyes depending on the deepest shade of bluish veins on your under eye also, the amount of crease of lines that are visible on your eyes too! While I was browsing online I come across this little gem of a pot.

Tony Moly Cover Pot Concealer Face Mix - Packaging - comes in a small glass like plastic pot. 

They have 2 shades available, mine is the lightest shade.

Net Weight : 4 g

Final Thoughts - The shade that I've got is the lightest shade & have a more yellow under tone in it. A very pigmented concealer so, I suggest to apply this using your ring finger & just a tiny bit because it will tend to sink in to your fine lines. My technique in applying this is I pick a small, tiny amount of product using my spatula & placed it on my ring finger then rub it with my ring fingers. The warm of your fingers will melt the concealer & make it more emollient & more creamy.

So, have your tried this little piece of a gem?

Thanks for stopping by!
