MAKEUP STAPLE: Missha The Style Under Eye Brightener - Concealer

by - Wednesday, December 16, 2015

Would you believe I used to not like concealers? Well, they kind of feel heavy (for me) so I usually just go for them when I'm having a break out or if I'm going out for an evening event that requires heavy makeup.

Well it all changed when I saw this short clip of makeup tutorial about "baking", let's save another post about it but if you're not familiar with it, it's a sort of another concealing technique that requires damp sponge and whopping amount of translucent powder sitting on your face for a couple of minutes. You're pretty much "cooking" your face with it haha! (And oh, Kim K's makeup artist uses this technique on her)

Kidding aside, today's review will be about a korean brand concealer, Missha The Style Under Eye Brightener, it is a tip-type concealer that contains brightening properties to cover up your dark circles and imperfections (Missha).

It comes in a tube with a doe-foot applicator, nothing fancy but the applicator is easy to use and helpful. Like most korean BB cream's texture and consistency, Missha The Style Under Eye Brightener leans on the thick yet creamy side and glides on very smoothly. It doesn't dry up insanely quick so application wouldn't be much of a problem.

As for preference, I spread Missha The Style Under Eye Brightener using my fingers and then I use a slightly damp buffing brush to blend things away diagonally UPWARD. I'm doing this to give the illusion of 'highlighted' features a.k.a contour.

I dunno about you but once it sets, Missha The Style Under Eye Brightener exudes this velvety semi-matte finish that I love. It's not too flat - matte, and not a ball-of-grease kind of glow either. It's just the right mix of semi-matte.

It may not be very obvious on the first two photos due to the lighting, but in reality, there's a stark difference between my true skin color and this concealer's shade. However, since I'm totally acidic (inside and out) foundations and concealers tend to turn a little orangey and darker (on me) and eventually adjusts right to my skin tone.

Just take note, due to its thick consistency, this product may not or may settle on fine lines. I only experience this whenever I'm in such a hurry that I wasn't able to properly blend away, also if you have highly sensitive, dry under eye area like I do, do not forget to put on some eye creams before using this to prep and hydrate the area!

What I love about Missha The Style Under Eye Brightener (P399):
- I love the packaging since I don't have to dip my fingers directly onto the container, which sometimes spoil the product
- very creamy and easy to glide
- doesn't dry extremely fast and lets me work my way
- instant brightening effect! My eyes look more awake and less tired because of this

What I don't like so far?
- only 2 shades to choose from, both which are not morena-friendly
