I like to use concealer instead of thick foundations to cover hyperpigmentation. In my past Althea haul, I bought The Saem’s concealer because it was on sale. I tried it for a month. I have a love-hate relationship with it. I thought 01 is too light for me and 02 is too dark for me. So I had high hopes that 1.5 will be the closest shade for me.
Description (from Althea’s website) :
The Saem’s Cover Perfection Ideal Concealer Duo comes with both a liquid (evens out larger surfaces areas like under the eyes) and a cream concealer (cover up smaller spots like blemishes and scars) on either end to complete a gorgeous canvas. This dynamic duo also contains SPF of 27 and 28, keeping your skin protected from the sun all day. Size: 4.2g + 4.5g
Ingredients (from Althea’s website) :
– Affordable, got it for Php360
– Simple and travel friendly packaging
– Fair amount of product
– Little goes a long way
– Light to medium coverage
– Liquid covers redness and minimal dark spots
– Cream covers spots that are darker
– Limited shades
– 1.5 looks orange on me
– Can accentuate dry patches
– Gives intense flashbacks
– Caused my breakouts
– Wears off throughout the day
For my skin condition, I’d say both the liquid and cream can give light to medium coverage. It can be full coverage if your concerns are only redness and minor spots. I can’t describe the exact scent of it. It smells like wax and a little hint of paint but it goes away. It didn’t bother me. A second layer of the liquid covers my redness really well. One layer of cream gives good coverage.
Korean makeup is really nice but I dont like that majority of them have SPF. This gave intense flashback when I used my phone’s camera. Cream has SPF 27 while the liquid has SPF 28. It looks orange on me in natural lighting but looks white on me with flash. So saan ako lulugar? Haha! It caused my recent breakout of cystic acnes.
This is a really good concealer if you dont have sensitive skin. It will probably impress you if you can get your shade match. Both have good coverage and very affordable. It can last for 2 to 3 months max if you’re using it frequently. This is not for events where there’s flash photography. Always moisturize and prime first to avoid dry patches. I just dont like that it broke me out. Until now skin hasn’t recovered from it yet.
