I’ve been spoiled too much, and challenged too much with concealer in loose powder form that it was hard for me to use liquid or creme-based concealers – too much loose powder overload on my face. Hahaha! But then, makeup school prompted me to use liquids because of the unbelievable time pressure, and of course, everyone was using them. Good thing that I still have my liquid concealers in mineral form, and they’re my Cosminology Liquid Concealers.
There are four Cosminology concealers namely AstroBeach, AstroSand, AstroShore, and AstroKoncealer. AstroBeach is a skin tone concealer for light to medium skin tones, AstroSand for medium to dark skintones, and AstroShore for dark skin tones. AstroKoncealer is a yellow cream-based concealer for the undereyes and red areas of the face.
The Cosminology concealers’ application tool is a sponge tipped applicator, and as you swipe some product on your hands, you would notice that it is creme a little bit creamy in consistency, and as you blend it, it slowly adjusts into a powder finish. Like creme to powder – but not in an instant. You would have to wait a few seconds for it to dry, so an advantage would be that you would have enough time to blend around the edges of your imperfections before it totally dries.
AstroBeach is my concealer of choice as I like applying it to cover my blemishes and imperfections. I love to apply it specially during days when my pimples are dried and it would become flaky if I apply loose mineral concealer wet. It’s a bit tricky though I need to check if the concealer’s semi-dry already before I start blending. AstroSand and AstroShore are a bit too dark on me, but I think I would be able to use them to creme-contour my face for beauty shots ( yes I am learning that in makeup school! Hahaha! ). For the AstroKoncealer, I would have to be very careful in applying only very little because it might look too opaque and yellow under my eyes if I apply too much. For the record, I still like applying AstroBeach over AstroKoncealer on my undereyes.
To sup up, I love Cosminology’s concealers. In fact, I love all of their products! They so portable, travel-friendly, but they work really, really well. I recommend everyone to give this a try!
