Étude House Big Cover Concealer Cushion – I got it in Illuminate and Mint (they have six color selections by the way). Both have an SPF of 30 with customized color correction for skin imperfections.
Let’s talk about quality and quantity. They’re kinda pricey at Php 800.00 plus (each) so it can really hurt your budget. When it comes to quality, I’m not really happy with the Illuminate one but I’m quite impressed with the Mint shade despite its sheer coverage. Yes, both of them are too thin and their coverage is almost see-through, it’s not like the typical concealers I usually look forward to. I have to admit that I wasn’t happy after opening and trying them but yeah, you’re never gonna grow up and learn if you don’t try new things.
I think the Illuminate shade is meant to make your skin look dewy, it’s almost like a highlight of some kind. It doesn’t cover my redness and failed to hide brown spots, especially my melasma scars. On the other hand, the Mint did a great job of covering redness on my skin like the small red veins and inflamed pimples. It was sheer at first but once I blended it by lightly tapping it on my skin (w/my middle finger) it actually covered up the areas I wanted to cover.
I’m still happy I tried them myself but I recommend against buying them since they aren’t practical to buy just to try once. I recommend that you buy other concealer products instead i.e. Étude House concealers that are worth the money.
How to use it:
– Press the back part 2-3 times to let the product come out from the cushion puff (see the photos below)
– Apply directly to the desired area and lightly blend it with your finger
– Let it set/dry a little bit before you layer your favorite foundation or powder (to avoid tackiness)
