I first saw this brand from a Youtuber and she couldn’t stop talking about how good this certain low key concealer from a Korean brand. She even think it’s a dupe for the Tarte Shape Tape concealer, which I have been eyeing for quite some time now! (I just don’t have the money for it yet! *sobs*) So, fast forward to July – a few months after I watched the video where she mentioned the concealer – I was looking for a nice but cheap concealer and remembered her mentioning The Saem Cover Perfection Tip Concealer *sigh* That’s a mouthful! So I checked Shopee right away (because DUH Shopee is my go-to shopping app) and thankfully, a lot of shops there carries it! I was so relieved because I thought it was going to be a pain in the butt finding it! Of course, me being the usual impulsive self, I ordered 2 colors right away!
I know you’ve been waiting for my review ever since I psted it on my Twitter/Instagram and I’m sorry it took me so long! I just really wanted to test it out so I can share my 100% honest thoughts about it!
PACKAGING & SIZE
I admit, I thought this concealer would be A LOT bigger than I thought it would be. I was SHOOKT when I saw how tiny it is. Just look at the photo above! *giggles* To give you an idea, The LA Girl Pro Concealer is bigger than this. So I was little bit turned off by the size but I didn’t let it stop me from giving it a chance! When I finally used it, I realized that a little goes a long way! You don’t need a lot of products to cover up something!
I honestly love the packaging. It’s ideal to bring it with me everyday at school and I love the aesthetic of the packaging! It’s very minimal!
It has a smell that I can’t really explain but it has a nice scent to it. It’s not overpowering at all which is a plus! It doesn’t really bother me and it goes away after a few minutes.
Unfortunately, it only comes in 3 shades. 01 Clear beige (being the lightest), 1.5 natural beige and 2.0 rich beige (darkest). I wish they would come out with darker shades to cater every skin tone but I understand that most Koreans have white skin.
I use 01 to brighten the high points of my face and 1.5 to cover up my blemishes.
This concealer usually costs PHP250-300.00 at Shopee (Free SF + COD) and You can also get this at Althea Korea for PHP320.00!
CONSISTENCY & FINISH
The consistency of this concealer is in between thick and thin. It’s not too thick but it’s very creamy. It’s easy to blend. I use either sponge or brush and it works great on both! Although I prefer blending it with a beauty blender! It dries out matte but not too matte which is a good thing! I love the finish it’s not flat at all!
This concealer has a medium to full coverage! It doesn’t cover my pimple scars entirely but I can say that it hides it enough not to be blatantly visible. It also covers my under eyes well! It’s the main reason why I fell in love with it! It completely hid my dark circles! What I also love about this concealer is that it doesn’t settle on my pores at all! It creases a little bit on the lines under my eyes but I haven’t really found a concealer that doesn’t completely settles on the lines on my eyes!
It’s also very lightweight and you won’t feel like you’re wearing a lot of products on your face. It doesn’t feel sticky at all but I set it using a face powder or a lose powder and it looks and feels great!
I also tried using this concealer without foundation and it really covered everything I want to hide! It was the first time in months that I went out with just concealer on!
I honestly didn’t have any concealer that I genuinely like until I got my hands on these babies! They’re SO GOOD for the price! I’m so happy I discovered this concealer! I am definitely going to repurchase once I ran out! I forgot the name of the shop where I got this from! I’m sorry! But if you want to get your hands on these babies, it’s all over Shopee!
Look: My face and specifically my under eyes looked flawless in the photo above! The concealer really does the job of covering my blemishes up!
