AMW Reviews: K-Palette Zero Kuma Cover Control Concealers

Happy Tuesday AMW Friends!
Are you well rested today?  I hope so as we're all ready to face another week, stressful or not, it is best to face it with a smile!

Speaking about stress, it seems like concealing is one of the many important makeup techniques a lot of you would like to master!  How do I know that?  Well, 40% of AMW queries focus on concealing and concealers!  No wonder I created this post and this post.

And the search for perfect concealer continues!  I recently got hold of the most asked concealer since it made its appearance at the local Beauty Bars!  The K-Palette Zero Kuma Cover Control Concealer.  I've loved K-Palette made products, they never fail!  So are these Kuma concealers another winner in my dictionary?

Pros
  • Cute packaging and the local distributor has included clear English translations at the back.
  • The slanted tip makes it easy to apply directly onto the eye area or the tube is a great way to squeeze the right amount needed without much product wastage.
  • Versatile: Though this product is focused on concealing the undereye area, I also use this to conceal other areas of my face and the product works just fine.
  • Very moisturizing and all 3 concealers do not settle in fine lines.
  • Coverage is from light to heavy.
  • Aside from concealing, the concealer gives "brightening effect" on the undereye area.
  • None of the weird scent.
  • Stays the whole day upon setting the area properly.
  • Lightweight.
Cons
  • Since there are 3 choices to target 3 undereye concealing needs, it is difficult to pick just one!
Overall
A concealer I wouldn't mind recommending to my friends!  Lightweight, easy to use, stays the whole day and doesn't leave the area dry!

Tips
  • Even though I tested the product without using an eye cream or moisturizer underneath, it is still best to be consistent with your skin care prior to makeup application.
  • Use clean fingers in dabbing the product or use a brush depending on your preference.
  • Wipe the slanted tip after every use before storage.
  • To know which concealer number is right for you, scroll further down for tips.
Will I repurchase?
Yes!

To whom do I recommend this to?
If you are into serious concealing especially the undereye area.

Where to purchase and how much?

Swatch
01 Natural Beige is closest to my natural skin tone
02 Yellow Beige as the name states has a distinct yellow tone which works well in brightening dull areas
03 Orange Beige has more orange tone which is best to mask bluish tint around the eyes.  Keep in mind how we love to use salmon-colored concealers or orange shade corrector to counteract dark bluish tint under the eye area.



 If you plan to use the K-Palette Zero Kuma Cover Control Concealer for personal use, feel free to apply the product straight from tube as shown on photo below.  Do not forget to clean the slanted tip after every use.  If you are a makeup artist and plan to use this on clients, it is best to apply the concealer on a metal palette or at the back of your clean hands before applying the product on clients.


 Before and After photos

01 Natural Beige
Natural Beige, as tested, applies smoothly even without eye cream underneath.  It does not settle into the distinct lines around my eyes and my undereye area was moisturized the whole day!  

If you don't know what you're looking for or you are unsure about your concealing needs, it is best to start with 01 Natural Beige as the shade is versatile enough to cover other areas like the sides of the nose, zits or redness around the cheeks!


02 Yellow Beige
Yellow Beige could be tricky to use especially for people with dark skin tone.  Less is more in terms of concealer application.  Applying the right amount will create a brighter-looking eyes and since I have warm skin tone, I find this shade to work so well on me and I even like to use the concealer to apply around the center of my face to create a nice glow!

Best used for people who have warm skin tone, likes the added brightening effect aside from the needed coverage.


03 Orange Beige
If you are the type who suffers distinct bluish to almost dark undereye circles, Orange Beige is the best to use as it can immediately counteract the bluish-purplish tint around the eye area.  

Purchasing Orange Beige would best be used only if you're serious about concealing the undereye area.

  2. One of my problem areas tlga ang dark circles under my eyes. Im just wondering, if i buy a tube now, how many months before sha mag-expire? Does it help if I store it inside the ref? (i heard some people do that)

    1. Much better, just store your makeup in cool, dry place, storing it inside a ref (that varies in temperature per home) may change the consistency of the concealer. Usually concealers can last for a year as long as you really wipe the tip after use.

  5. Hi, I have read your previous post about save and splurge on concealer. I have swatched Skin food Salmon concealer... not sure of the exact name :) i am planning to purchase one but i have 2nd thoughts now if i should go for Skin Food or this one.. which is better?

    1. If you have major dark or bluish undereye circles but your eye area isn't as dry, the Skin Food Salmon Concealer is good as it has more orange tint to it. BUT, if you suffer from dryness or most concealers tend to dry up on you, purchase this one! :D

  6. Which one would you say is the closest to Revlon's ColorStay under eye concealer in light/medium? :)

    ReplyDelete
  7. I don't know which to get.. I'm stuck between the second and thrid. I really have dark under eye circles but what if the third one is to orange? And i would order it online, and if i get the wrong one i would really regret it... PLEASE HELP!:D

    1. Personally speaking, i can't seem to tell which shade would work best on you as I don't see you in person plus I don't know how dark is dark your under eye circles are! Don't you have the chance to visit any stores that sells the brand so you can try on testers? base on your requirements, all I can say that the most "orange tonged" shade is number 1. But again, if regretting at the end is something that may happen to you, I strongly suggest you try to borrow one from a friend who owns one! It is very difficult (even for professionals) to order foundations and concealers online. goodluck!

  8. Okay, I was once confused between this or MAC StudioSculpt or Studio Finish. But I settled for MAC Studio Finish, no regrets though. It has a brightening effect and its build-able. Once I hit the pan(which I'm sure will take months), I'll be definitely trying this K-Palette Kuma Concealer. Japanese products are the newest rave!
