Product Review:Shu Uemura Pro Spot Concealer

Friday, May 14, 2010

Comes with a pointed tip applicator Precisely for use on targeted blemishes or imperfections Waterproof, long lasting & not migrating Gives high coverage Leaves you a flawless complexion

Ingredients

swatches,their soo damn creamy,i use 7yr on my dark circles and since 5yr is a little tad dark i use it on my blemishes/redness 

semi blended,see how thick they are,its creamy yes! but!! they're quite hard to blend,and a little bit drying,i used this when i had one big hormonal blemish,and it works so well,i think it helped
dried out the pimple too...

the applicator of this is different from other liquid concealer,its just a straight plastic stick that looks like the doe foot head has been cut off lol.Honestly i find this efficient,saves up tons of product,since this is recommended for blemish use only,rather than slabbing tons of concealer when we use a doe foot applicator,this stick applicator will grab just the right amount of concealer and will only target the blemish you want to conceal.

the concealer comes with an instruction manual.(click photo)

 bare eyes..ugghh,it looks sooo tired..

after...i only applied one coat of concealer,the coverage is really amazing!

with just one dip of the applicator i dotted it on the area i want to conceal and blend it using my fingers.i tried using a concealer brush but the finish was not as flawless as when i use my fingers

after setting it with a powder..

the concealer on me after 5 hours..

goodbye dark circles..hehe.although this is only recommended  for concealing blemishes this works as great on concealing my under eye circles

PROS:

  • Great Coverage(works really well on red swollen pimples)
  • A little Goes a long way
  • Stick Applicator is quite unique
  • Perfectly blends with my skintone
  • Long Lasting and waterproof
CONS:

  • Hard to Blend
  • A little Bit drying(thus may look cakey)
  • Pricey for a concealer
  • Limited Shade Range.
TIP:
Since the concealer is a little too thick for a liquid concealer,the area may end up cakey,and believe me,this concealer is not that easy to blend,i already have oily skin,and yet i find this a bit drying..so to make it more manageable :


-Be sure to moisturize the area really well!!..
-If you still find the concealer hard to blend,after moisturizing,just apply the concealer on the area you want to conceal,but dont blend it just yet~...apply a pin point size amount of your eye cream or moisturizer on the finger of your choice that you'll use to blend the concealer,then use that to blend the concealer,this will help you avoid the concealer from drying,making it easier to blend,and since we only used a small amount of the moisturizer it wont alter the coverage of your concealer...thats what i always do..hope it will work on you as well.

PS:i know that this has been discontinued and was replaced with mark cealer..or was it the other way around..hehe..now they have the pro concealer

Nice review, Shobe. I can totally see the difference it made on your undereyes. But Shu prods are really overpriced here. :(
