AMW Reviews: Elianto Cream Concealer

When I gave Elianto Store at SM The Block a visit, the Elianto Cream Concealer with a sign of "Cosmo Beauty Awards" caught my attention, I told myself I have to give it a try no matter how many concealers I currently own.  If it won an award, it's worth to give it a try considering the price isn't bad at all!


Elianto Cream Concealer says ---
This soft concealer cream has high and long-wearing invisible coverage for skin's imperfections and discolourations. Water -resistant, fragrance-free and non-acnegenic. Enriched with Mineral Oil, It effectively covers dark circles and blemishes. It can be applied with brusher, a latex sponge, or the fingertips.

Available in: Medium, Dark and Deep
Made in: Korea

AMW says ---
Pros
  • very creamy
  • though creamy texture, does not oil up the whole day
  • a little is enough
  • medium to heavy coverage
  • coverage is build-able
  • inexpensive
  • feels light
  • nice packaging and easy to take along
Cons
  • can sit in fine lines if skin is not moisturized enough
  • quite tricky to apply, needs a lot of practice
  • limited shades available
Overall

If you're looking for heavy coverage concealer that's inexpensive, this is the one to watch out for. This deserve the award because it does cover spots, redness, under eye circles but I have to repeat that moisturizing is really needed especially if you have lines or dry skin like myself.  It is a bit tricky to apply at first but given the practice, you'll get the hang of it. 

Tips
  • apply using patting motion, never rub especially the under eye area
  • if your skin is dry, apply moisturizer first, let it absorb, then go with foundation then concealer
  • test on testers before purchasing
  • if you are using this mainly to cover dark circles, choose the concealer shade that has distinct orange tone.  Medium works really well for under eye circles.
  • store in cool dry place
  • try to clean your hands prior to dipping your hand on this product for hygiene purposes.  For makeup artists, use a spatula in picking the product.
  • I prefer warming the concealer on my hand first prior to application so the texture goes creamier and easier to apply
  • stop usage if allergies or skin irritations occur
  • purchased this product and found out it doesn't work for you?  Give it to a friend and make them happy!
Will I repurchase?
Not for myself, for my makeup train case, my skin is a bit dry so the concealer sits in lines.  I'll use this for oily skinned clients!

Where to purchase and how much?
At Elianto stores for Php399.00 (approx $8.70) for 6grams

Here's step by step on how I applied my Elianto Cream Concealer
1. Applied concealer using my ring finger with a dabbing motion
2. dab continuously until concealer sets and covered dark area/redness
3. set with your favorite setting powder
4. stand back and check if there are any uneven colors

  4. how do u apply the concealer if u are combining this with a different shade of foundation? for example,in2it harvest + elianto 01(which is medium)

    I still have a hard time trying to "conceal" the concealer since its lighter than my foundation.

    Any tips?

  16. Anonymous, if you're using powder foundation, I prefer using Concealer first, conceal everything then gently pat it on with a powder! try to add more, the problem with concealing is that most of the time, we aren't using enough that's why we weren't able to cover it up well! :)

    Garnet, thank you, have a wonderful day too!

    Khymm, I guess we really have to moisturize our skin well prior to using any product :)

  20. I have this but I can't use it, I don't know what moisturizing I need to keep the lines appearing after wearing a creamy concealer like this one.. Help Nikki! It's been with me since last year but I tend to look old because of the creasing. :(

    ReplyDelete
  21. I know the creasing issues, kaya I strongly recommend to use an eye cream prior to usage as this can really crease big time! With the right moisturizer, it'll help lessen the crease or NO crease at all! Just make sure to let it sink in prior to concealer application!
