Review: Shu Uemura Point Cealer Concealer

imageI have been searching for a high coverage concealer for a while. For some time, I was using cream (in stick form) concealer from Shiseido. As usual, I was browsing through Youtube and saw reviews on this. This is my current holy grail, it is the Shu Uemura Point Cealer – don’t underestimate this little baby, apparently this is very ideal for ladies who are concerned with blemishes around the nose, blackheads, and small-size freckles. It can also be used as an under eye concealer! 2-in-1 item, yes please!

imageThis concealer is very compact like a pen and can drown in my countless collection of makeup. Also with this compact size, you can slip it into the phone compartment of your bag for easy touch up throughout the day (if needed!). My lovely concealer has a special place in my makeup storage area.

imageThe applicator is a sponge applicator! Yes, we will hear all the germaphobes cringing at how unhygienic this is. BUT you can see this is a legit review because I have used it. I do spray it with alcohol spray to help “kill” the bacteria. I try to do this every 2 weeks or on a monthly basis.

Twist the bottom part of the tube and there is some magical mechanism that will get the concealer out. Do note that you will need to take more effort to twist it initially but please do not go crazy doing it. There’s no way to make the liquid go back in once its out. Twisting the bottom in the opposite way doesn’t work.

This concealer gives medium – high coverage. There is always a saying that a little goes a long way. You only need a little and it lasted me the whole day which is pretty awesome.

For information, the colour I am using is 7YR-ML, medium light beige.

imagePros:

  • Travel Friendly/ Compact
  • Medium – High Coverage
  • Easy to blend and will not make your makeup cakey
  • Can double up as an under eye concealer
  • Safe to use over acne scar

Cons:

  • Cushion Applicator
  • Price

Although this item is a bit on the expensive side, $55 for 2.7g/0.09oz/2.22ml, however this concealer gives good coverage and is perfect if you are going out for a long day. I know I said this is my holy grail but I am still open to try out other concealer brands.

If there are any brands that you love or is your holy grail. Do share with me and I am excited to try and do more reviews from my makeup collection.
