Shiseido Perfecting Stick Concealer*
A New Product from Shiseido
I can’t believe this is the first Shiseido product I’m blogging about. I shouldn’t be surprised (still I am), the brand didn’t quite appeal to me then because I saw it as traditional and rigid — which was a bad thing because it hindered me from discovering some great products in the range which I am now a huge fan of. Will talk about those soon! For now, I’ll share my thoughts on a fairly new addition to the range which I’m still in the process of figuring out if I love it or not – the Shiseido Perfecting Stick Concealer *.
The concealer is housed in a sleek, black tube that reminds me of the famous Cle de Peau concealer. The formula is an emollient, thick cream that glides on smoothly with no dragging. I personally like that it’s moisturizing on the undereyes because other cream concealers tend to be drying on me. As with other concealers, the key here is to pat or buff the concealer, otherwise it just diminishes and fades without covering anything. I got mine in the Shade 44 (33 also works for me but it has yellow undertones) which has peach undertones and works magically in counteracting dark circles. I’m so pleased that I chose to go with shade 44 than 33 as I don’t need to use any corrector underneath for my dark circles anymore. This works as a 2-in-1 corrector + concealer for me!
The downsides I’ve encountered with this, though – it leaves lines unfilled. It doesn’t quite cover evenly, I have to work in the concealer properly so it doesn’t look ‘cracked’. It’s pretty pigmented, though. One swipe is enough to conceal my bags and circles – given I use the right technique (pat or buff, not swipe!). I then always finish up with a slight dusting of loose powder to set the concealer in place and fill in lines unfilled (if there are any). There is a slight learning curve to using this concealer but when you do find the right way of using it to your liking, it looks like this:
I definitely love the flawless finish after I’ve figured out the most effective way of using it which is swipe one layer, buff with a synthetic eye brush, swipe another layer and pat pat pat. I set with a loose powder after and ta-da – what dark circles?! I also find this works for concealing blemishes and redness. The NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer hasn’t been working for me anymore so I’m happy to replace that with this new Shiseido concealer. I’m still gauging if I already love it or not – we’ll see after a month.
