If all my makeups were disappeared and I could only keep one, I would definitely keep concealer. That’s right. Concealer plays a very important role in my life. Because, no matter what eye cream or skincare hacks that I tried, my under-eye areas is still as dark as panda eyes. So I just have to accept it and cover it with the best concealer that I can find in the market.
This The Saem Cover Perfection Tip Concealer hands down is one of the best. It is not only just the formula, but also the color matches my skin very well. It is usually hard for me to find a good match to my skin. The packaging is also slim that it even fits in my jeans pocket. Moreover, the price, OMG, the price is very cheap. It costs only IDR 55K in some online store in Indonesia. Luckily, I purchased this in Korea so it is even cheaper. I purchased this in Korean Duty Free Store for KRW 12K for 3 pieces. So, it is around IDR 48K for 6.8 gram of products. The cheapest concealer I have ever seen in the entire world. Read on to find out more about the product
Like I said before, the packaging is very slim, small, light, and simple. The tube is typical to any concealer. And I think, that is the best tube for a concealer. I prefer this packaging to those in a pot. There is not much going on in the packaging itself. Not much of description either. However, bear in mind that you should be careful upon closing the tube. You have to make sure that no product is left on lid because it will spill out if you close the bottle. It can smear everywhere and leave concealer mark. It will be hard to clean if you spill it to a fabric as the texture of this concealer is thick. You will have to scrub hard to get it off.
Its small applicator makes it easy to apply in small areas, such as near inner corner and crevices of nose. The tip also deposits enough product for both undereyes so you don’t have to dip back and forth. I personally like this size of applicator as the big one will apply to much product.
Sadly, the shade range of this concealer is very limited. It is not suitable for women of colors. The Saem only offers three choices of color, which are 01 for fair skin, 1.5 for light to medium skin, and 02 for medium skin. Actually it is not very surprising that they only cater to fair skin. It is almost the nature of Korean products that only provide shade range for those with fair skin. That makes sense, given a large population of Koreans are fair-skinned. As an Indonesia, many say that my skin is a little lighter above the average. I mean, gladly, I have fair skin. And, the shade 1.5 matches my skin very well. It almost looks seamless even without wearing foundation.

As you can see, it contains fragrance but it’s not very pungent. You can smell it in the tube and while you’re applying this concealer. However, the scent will gradually disappear.
Texture and Formula
The Saem Cover Perfection Tip Concealer has thick and creamy texture that offers a medium to full coverage. But it is also light that you can layer it up to have a really full coverage without looking cakey. It is also great for dry skin. I feel like it is kind of hydrate my under-eye areas. Texture wise, it is almost similar to Catrice Liquid Camouflage Concealer. But, Catrice’s texture is lighter. The Saem also give more coverage. Both concealer oxidize a bit after setting.
I use this concealer everyday and I always wear it for more than 10 hours. It is very long-wearing that when it is time to wash my face, this concealer is still looking good. It does not melt in the heat of day. But, it does slightly settle into the fine lines. Bonus point, it has SPF 28/PA++ to help prevent sun damage and skin cancer.
How to Use
I only need a dot to cover my dark circles to get a natural look. I prefer to use my ring finger to blend this out. You can also use beauty blender or brush, but you will need more than just a dot because sometimes tools can absorb the product.
This concealer blend like a dream. It almost look seamless in my skin. Every time I use this concealer, people compliment how good my skin look. Besides under-eye circles, it can also cover redness and dark spots. You can also use it for eyeshadow primer. For everyday wear, I never use foundation. I just wear this concealer in my under-eye, near the nose and mouth, and also in my dark spots. Also, I have never set it with any powder. I found that this concealer is long-wearing enough to use alone. It is also very great for no makeup makeup look.
This concealer gets the job done. It conceals dark circles as well as covers redness and spots. I recommend this for those who have dry skin. Besides, it is very inexpensive. I heard that many people compared this to Nars Creamy Concealer. I haven’t tried that one though. But I think I will love the Saem more because it is far cheaper than Nars. On that note, I rate the Saem Cover Perfection Tip Concealer 4.5 out of 5. Great product!
