Shiseido Synchro Skin Self Refreshing Concealer, $31, is a liquid concealer and compliment to the Shiseido Synchro Skin Self Refreshing Foundation. It claims to diminish the appearance of imperfections and provide medium to full coverage with up-to-24-hour wear and a natural finish.
The concealer has a thicker consistency than the foundation with more of a whipped texture. It is very light on the skin and blends out well with a sponge for an even complexion and a natural finish. This line boasts the following claims:
- The use of ActiveForce™ Technology that protects finish from the effects of sweat, oil, and facial movement.
- Water-resistant, Humidity-resistant
- 8-hour shine control
The wand applicator is also something special. The applicator is designed with a curvature to it for easy application. I fond that that tip dispensed the perfect amount of product for targeted dark marks and the curved portion was wonderful for controlled application like around the nose.
The shade 402 Tan was the perfect face match for me as a concealer. I will be trying the 401 Tan later for a brighter under eye effect.
Although I believe the tube is rather small and made me question if I would get my money’s worth, I think we can go with the adage, small but mighty for this one. This concealer is great for all skin types and works hard to make sure it lives up to the standard set by the foundation.
After several hours of wear, the concealer did an amazing job of not settling into my fine lines. It was very comfortable to wear and did not get oily or shift at all during the day. It also kept my under eyes smooth, yet moisturized all day. This small and mighty tube is definitely worth the splurge.
