Product Review: Skinfood Salmon Darkcircle Concealer Cream

I purchased the Skinfood Salmon Darkcircle Concealer Cream last week due to the review I read from IAMSUTIL's addictions and I was really intrigued. Since I'm on the graveyard shift, I want my eyes to look well-rested, without that pesky and annoying dark under eyes. I'm happy with my MAC Studio Finish Concealer but I sure can try other products that seem promising.



So I went ahead and got myself one in Shade 1. I decided to get the lighter shade because I am acidic. But then I think I made the wrong decision. It's taking quite a long time to achieve the coverage I want on my under eyes. I had to put 3-4 layers of concealer alone just to cover it up and I set it with powder. That takes a lot of time as compared to the 2 layers of MAC for me.






What I like:
- Not so hard to blend
- It really conceals well and is suited for dark under eyes
- Helps make your eyes look well rested and brightens it up
- Locally available at any Skinfood store and a couple of department stores
- Price isn't so bad at PHP975, considering it contains 10g of product
- Doesn't cake if you apply just the right amount of setting powder
- It doesn't become dry when stored in cool place, unlike MAC Studio Finish that gets a little hard.
- Buildable coverage

What I don't like:
- It's a bit oily and greasy. No, it really is oily and greasy that's why a good setting powder is needed. Otherwise, it'll cake.
- I need to apply 3-4 layers on each under eye to achieve the coverage I need
- It tends to settle on fine lines after a couple of hours

Basically, it is my fault that I had to use more product by choosing the wrong shade and not testing it first before buying it. Now I know better.

Overall, I'd give this product a 4/5. I don't like greasy and oily but it delivers.

And here's something to really show you ladies the difference this concealer made on my under eyes.


I set it with my Kanebo Revue Still Keep powder foundation because I need something light to set it with. It does a pretty good job, eh?

Ta ta! Have a great Sunday, everyone! :)

  3. Golden, I learned how to properly apply concealers last year. It's never too late. :)

    Thanks, Nikki. Though I had to apply like 3 or 4 layers of it which is a lot. :)
