Review | Skin18.com SOC 3D Beauty Serum Face Mask (SYN-AKE)

Now let’s start with the review! 🙂

My take 

Concealers are an important part of my life because I am *blessed*(?) with awful looking dark circles and acne scars. So coverage is the first thing I look in a concealer and price the second. 😀 Both the concealers of this duo provide light to medium coverage. The concealer on the left has pink undertones while the one on right has yellow undertones. You can use it with a concealer brush but I’d recommend using it with fingers (even though it sounds unhygienic), I have seen some YouTubers using Q tips to pick up cream based products from the pan. Dot the Concealer on the areas where coverage is needed and blend it using your third finger. It’s creamy texture helps to blend it on skin easily. It’s good for covering dark under eye circles only, you will need to use a corrector if you’re trying to cover an acne or scar. It won’t help much if you have really bad dark circles.

What I like about Essence Match 2 Cover Cream Concealer – 

• Super duper affordable.

• Texture is easy to work with.

• Provides light to medium coverage.

• Packaging is travel friendly.

What I don’t like about Essence Match 2 Cover Cream Concealer –
• Doesn’t cover acne/scars.
• May crease if you don’t set it with a powder.
• Staying power is 3-4 hours. (Where does it go after that?)
• Only one shade available (= 1 compact with 2 concealers).

*PR Sample

I highly recommend essence products because they’re hella affordable, if you’re a newbie to makeup world you can build your makeup kit with essence products in Rs.1500/- or less. I think it’s the best drugstore brand which is available across the world. The most important fact is that they say NO to animal testing and YES to bringing quality products at affordable prices. 🙂

Hope you all enjoyed my reviews of their products.
