The SAEM Cover Perfection Liquid Concealer Review

From what I've experienced, Korean concealers are in general quite creamy, thick and highly pigmented. If you were by any chance surprised by Korean BB's coverage, you can probably imagine the next step towards perfected skin. Should I dare to bet on Korean concealers instead of old and bland European interpretations? Well, not quite. While Korean concealer stash is highly pigmented and rich but there are some flaws - same as with European versions. Still, dark circles and wide areas (in need of coverage) are pretty much a good match with Korean style of concealers, especially with a newly discovered The SAEM Cover Perfection Liquid Concealer. Why? Upon brand claims, it contains olive oil for extra nourishment, pigment fitting gel for a flawless finish and it's easily mixed into foundation for higher coverage.

The SAEM Liquid Concealer (7,98$, 15ml, Jolse) comes in a handy squeeze tube with a thin applicator for precise application and sanitary reasons. This tiny little tube contains a generous amount of 15ml, which is frankly, half of the amount in standard foundations. If we put the concealer itself into the spotlight, we can easily notice highly pigmented and creamy texture. Blending it out, The SAEM concealer offers medium to buildable high pigmentation. Since it's so potent and creamy, you should be careful with application as it gets a bit cakey with heavy layers. Also, another negative side is that it can enhance large pores so avoid area around your nose. Longevity is pretty standard, nothing extraordinary yet not bad. I get an average of 5-6 hours of wear.

If I take into consideration the all in all colour selection from The SAEM Liquid Concealer range, there are only 2 shades in total which can complicate things a little bit. The lightest shade, #1 Clear Beige is a perfect choice for light (but too dark for fair) skintones while #2 should take care of medium skintones. For me, this shade is a tad too dark (think Bourjois Healthy Mix Concealer 51) but still works on my lighter/blueish under eye area. Colour is quite yellowish, which makes it suitable for covering blue dark circles or making a better match with yellow skintones. Olive oil also provides extra moisture to delicate eye area. Under eye area truly looks more moisturised than without it. Also, I need to point out, that this concealer doesn't move or feel greasy in any way. I'm predicting it has only the tiniest amount of oil in the mixture. Due to still creamy but thick consistency, it's easily mixed with foundations for extra coverage as The SAEM suggests. Skin looks flawless but not heavily covered if we use thin layers. 

The SAEM Cover Perfection Liquid Concealer is worth the look at only 7,98$ a piece. It has medium coverage and it's perfect for covering larger areas or dark circles due to nourishing oil and gel technology. Personally, I love to use it around my chin if mixed with lighter foundation or around eye area as it blends out seamlessly. The SAEM brand definitely grows on me - Lip Oil and Eco Soul Matte lipstick are a total blast. This brand is easily found online, usually with free worldwide shipping. Jolse has pretty much the biggest selection of The SAEM makeup line here.

  4. I love Korean makeup, but the shade range is not great and I don't usually cater to darker skin tones.
