KOH GEN DO MOISTURE CONCEALER
What it is: A concealer palette with three shades that you can mix together or layer alone to fit the coverage needed for particular blemishes.
Consistency: Creamy and light, each layer you put on is quite sheer so at best it gives you medium coverage.
Application: Honestly in this weather, I've been trying really hard to ditch my foundation and just stick to concealer over my skin care products. For that purpose, this palette served me really well. The thing is, while we may think we only need one shade of concealer for our entire face, the blemishes we have demand different hues to completely cover them up. For my eye bags, I used the darkest shade which on my hand looks a bit pink but covered the greys on my under eyes great. For blemishes (both the fresh and the scars of pimples past), the medium shade blended perfectly. Again, since there are three shades, you can really rub the colors together to get your actual skin shade if the given colors don't quite fit. Lastly, I worked the fairest shade like a highlighter, dabbing trace amounts on the inner corners of my eyes, under my brows and on the bridge of my nose to give some dimension to my face without having to add color.
Recommendation: Women who have uneven skin tone (like me!) will find this to be a steal. Three concealers for the price of one is a pretty good deal. Plus, how great would this be to give as a gift? I personally try to stay away from giving base as presents but with this pallete you really can't go wrong.
