Is Kevin a Beautymaker? Color Correcting Eyelid Primer Review

I have sleeping problems so I've been battling with dark under eye circles for quite some time now. The eye creams I use are helping but apparently not enough for me to go out without concealing my dark under eye circles. I used UDPP on my under eyes to make my Laura Mercier Secret Concealer last longer but I badly need something to help with the darkness. I saw someone from Girltalk selling Kevin Beautymaker Color Correcting Eyelid Primer and I immediately purchased it after reading reviews online that the product works on the under eyes more than it does on the lids. And it's time to review it.


I like the sleek, black, minimalist compact. Nothing fancy and straight on product that tells you "I'm here to do business and not to be an eye candy."


What I like:
- The packaging is minimalist and very sleek.
- The pale yellow shade really does help in color correction. It does a great job in making my dark circles less visible while brightening that area. It works well as a corrector and sometimes, I use it alone as a concealer too.
- Creamy and applies smoothly. I find it quite easy to blend.
- Opaque and pigmented so a little goes a long way. One tap is enough to cover my dark circles but I guess it depends on how light or dark your under eye circles are. But do not use to much as it will definitely cake.
- Unscented. I was expecting it to smell like chin chun su or the Chinese cream churva but it didn't. :D
- Has a shelf life of 24 months. Let's see how long it takes before I hit pan.
- Does not oxidize on me.
- Has not caused any allergic reactions so far and does not irritate my eyes.
- I have a fine line on each of my under eyes and I find that this does not settle on them once blended properly and has been set with powder. Just do not apply too much as it just might settle.
- Although the brand isn't locally available, this, along with other KBM products can be purchased from local resellers like wehaveit143. I think the products are reasonably priced and I want to try other items too.

What I don't like:
- It fails as an eyelid primer on me since consistency is creamy. It easily creases and oils up.
- Since the shade is a very pale yellow, I am not sure as to how it would work on women of color as it might look ghastly or too white.

Overall rating: 4.25/5 Kevin is indeed a Beautymaker with this product. Let's see if he is on other products when I decide to try others.

Will I buy again? I might. It's not everyday that I find a reasonably priced corrector that works as a concealer too.

  6. i guess since it fails as an eyelid primer, it can just as easily settle into lines. :( i have this curved line on my eye bags (lol i don't know how to describe it), and when i use cream concealers, the freakin thing settles in it :(

  7. Ooh I'm actually looking for an eyelid colour corrector. Kasi naman, I look like I've been punched. Itim ng eye circles ko parati. I have the Kevin Beautymaker peach compact/blush. Have yet to try it :)

  9. @Donna I get it! :P I edited my pros and forgot to include that I have fine lines on my under eyes as well and since I apply this sparingly, it does not settle on those lines. I just have to blend it properly and set it with powder. Of course, it still depends on each individual. :)

  14. Naunahan mo ako sa pagbili nito sa GT. Hehe. :D I think it's a good thing though 'cause looking at the swatch it looks too light for my skin tone. But it really seemed to brighten your undereye. :) I've tried the KBM concealer (from GT din) and it's okay.

  16. @Marge I blame it on my oily lids but it works great as an under eye concealer primer. :)

  17. @Nic Nic Me too. But on the under eyes, this works wonders with very minimal to almost no creasing. :)

  20. So far I only had his foundation pen and loved it, ued up 2 of them, and now I have a stick concealer and am trying to figure out how it works best, as I find my undereye area too dry and the concealer doesn't really like it >.<
