Review: Missha The Style Undereye Brightener


Missha The Style Undereye Brightener #2
Product Info from Missha:
A tip type concealer that contains brightening properties which will cover dark circles and imperfections.

RETAIL PRICE: Php 199.00 on Ebay.
WEIGHT: 6 grams
SHADES : Available in only 2 shades.
> #1 Light Beige
> #2 Natural Beige


PROS:
* creamy consistency & dries easily
* easy to blend
* inexpensive
* has tiny pearls to brighten the undereye area
* not as drying compared to Skinfood Rice Concealer tip
* does not settle into fine lines
* can be layered with a cream concealer

CONS:
* Light to medium coverage (see explanation below why its a CON)
* You cannot test the shades if you buy it online.
For Manila residents, they have a branch at SM North Annex. Thanks Justine for letting me know. =)
*
Limited shades available. The darkest shade is too light for medium skintones IMO

ADDICTION FACTOR:
I'm not pleased with this concealer... coverage is too light (for me) and it did nothing to camouflage my dark circles. I don't want this product to go to waste, so I sometimes use this on the sides of my nose and browbone to brighten.
If you're looking for a light coverage concealer just to brighten your undereye area maybe this product might work for you.

EDIT 1/28: Used it again on my undereyes this morning. I applied a thin layer first before applying my Time Balm concealer... the effect is okay, so far my concealer didn't cake but I still prefer using my Ben Nye corrector before using any concealer. =)

RATING : 2.5/5
