Shiseido Perfecting Stick Concealer in 33 Review + Swatches

Other Locations: Available in all local Shiseido boutiques and counters in leading malls
In general, cream concealers have a stiff, hard to blend texture, which makes them unsuitable for under eye use just because tugging will be inevitable when you work the product onto this area, and the result could be premature wrinkles. While there are soft, buttery cream concealers, I find their coverage blah 90% of the time!
But there are exceptions like this new concealer from Shiseido called Perfecting Stick Concealer, a favorite find of mine lately. It covers like cream yet glides on and feels like liquid, making it versatile enough to be used both as an under eye concealer and face concealer, thereby saving you more money and time.
SHISEIDO PERFECTING STICK CONCEALER IN 33 IN DETAIL
This new Shiseido concealer is made with Bind and Fit Wax, a concentrated network of oil and pigments that break down into a liquid- like texture when applied on the skin. It comes in 6 shades.
If you have medium and medium dark skin (okay, let's refer to MAC: NC30, NC35, NC40, and NC42), choose 33, this shade that I will swatch for everyone today.
Check out why this is my best cream concealer find yet after the break!
33 is a medium beige shade with a yellow undertone-I like this shade a lot because it appears just like my skin tone, not concealer. Coverage is medium to full and even if you layer it on, it will still look natural, almost skin- like as showcased in the above photo. Whatever the Bind And Fit Wax technology is, it's amazing because it gives the concealer a liquid feel and texture so I don't encounter caking, creasing, and heaviness with it. It is fragrance- free too. The wax has a soft consistency, yet it's not the type that is prone to melting, although I would not dare leave it in a place with a scorching temperature. My only problem with this product is it doesn't offer a good range of shades. Like, really? A coffee brown- colored concealer? :p
SHISEIDO PERFECTING STICK CONCEALER IN 33 IN ACTION
Bare under eye
One layer on my under eye
99% of the time, I find that one layer would suffice for my under eyes and two for my dark marks on the cheeks. It can last the whole day without fading, it's pretty sweat- proof, and what I like most about it is I don't have to tug the skin on my under eyes when I'm blending it!
This is one cream concealer that I shall truly treasure and repurchase because it is versatile, handy, long- wearing, light, natural- looking, economical, and it has a unique formula that covers really well yet feels very light. I think every concealer- loving person should try this product, provided that they find a shade match. Its consistency has the right creaminess to it, therefore I believe it will work on just about any skin type, whether oily, combination, normal, or dry. Now for dry skin types, here's a cream concealer that I think you will love!
