SANA Make Essence Concealer

Ok, ok I admit it.  I wanted this product badly because there’s a sleepy bear on the front.

SANA is a Japanese brand with some real gems in its collection.

This is one of them – oh yes.

I’ve tried quite a few random dark circle goods from Japan; and I disliked most of them.  A good undereye concealer should be brightening but ot racooney, moisturizing and not drying, not cakey, not fake looking, and doesn’t sink into lines.  Yeah, that’s all.

So anyway, the bear.  Isn’t it cute?

This is a pale yellow:

The texture of this stuff is GORGEOUS!  Its a lightweight yet opaque cream that is moisturizing but very brightening.  I wasn’t expecting that – I thought it would be a medium textured cream, like SANA’s pore putty but this is perfect, perfect, perfect for under the eyes.

You place 3 dots under the eyes and blend – it is easy to blend harsh lines away too.  Gorgeous!

Price is approx £7.  I love this product, recommend it very much – and there’s a cute bear on it!

  10. Hi Diana

    It totally depends on what you want in a concealer! I personally hate anything too heavy and thick under the eye. I prefer something light and moisturizing so even though some shadow is still visible, I prefer it because its more natural – after all we do have a slight shadow under our eye! I find concealers that are too thick and cover all the shadow too unnatural and racoony – for my medium dark shadows this concealer works well but if you want something really thick then this product isn’t it! :)
