That’s the equivalent of “Hello” in Korean so I’m led to believe. I entered a Korean restaurant once, bowed lightly and said “Annyeong Haseo!” and they beamed at me, and brought me the menu written in Korean! I had to hand it back and tell them that whilst I can Kimchi, Bulgogi and Bibimbap along with the best of them, I can’t read Korean 😛
So that little anecdote brings us to the Flower Dual Concealer from TheFaceShop – an affordable line of Korean cosmetics. I first visited their store in Bugis Junction Singapore a few years back. I never understood why they are TheFaceShop and not The Face Shop – anyone knows?
I came across The Flower Dual Concealer in the newspaper some time last year and picked it up that very evening while I as passing the store. Coincidence? I’d like to believe so! At RM46.90 a tube I figured it wouldn’t be that much of a strain on the wallet if it was a dud.
But its not a dud! The Flower Dual Concealer is a dual ended concealer with a liquid concealer on one end and a cream stick concealer on the other ostensibly so one covers the under eye area and the other covers blemishes.
I like the liquid concealer. The consistency is just right for the under eye without making it look cakey and covers up dark circles provided you aren’t bordering on Ling Ling the panda dark. The cream concealer looks like a lipstick (and is even shaped like one which I cannot understand :P) and feels rather dry. I find it does not work very well as a concealer because it does not cover my freckles thoroughly.
However, I have found that if I warm up the cream concealer then dab a little on blemishes and then layer with the liquid concealer, it looks better. Perhaps its due to the slightly illuminating texture of the liquid concealer. Either way, it works so its a handy little multi-tasking tool!
TheFaceShop has never wowed me (they still don’t) but I like this Dual Concealer and I think you might too! Comes in 2 shades NB21 and NB23 both of which are only suitable for fair to medium skintones and retails for RM42.90. Wait for a sale in store then pick it up 😉
Pros: Useful for concealing undereye dark circles and blemishes, Portable and travel friendly, Not Expensive
Cons: Cream concealer is dry, Coverage is only medium
Have you tried anything from TheFaceShop that you like? For me, so far this is it!
