Hello everyone!~ Today I'm reviewing the Etude House Surprise Essence Concealer in No.1 Light Beige~
Autumn & Winter always kills my skin ㅠㅠ It dries my skin out so bad & my skin starts peeling.
Any breakouts that have long dried out, stay on my face for almost a month .
Also the dull, grey colour & the rain makes me look so tired than in summer where the sun on my skin looks so nice & healthy. The darkness outside makes my face look so grey, rough & my dark circle take on the most vile colour ever! //crying （ ；´Д｀）
A great dewy base & a good concealer is what I need in these months! So I thought I'd try the Etude House one because apparently it has good coverage on blemishes & dark circles & is moisturising for my dry skin/eye area!
Original Etude House price:- 5,000원
I bought this from Cosmetic.Love for £5.90 which is not too bad :33
'Surprise blissfully hide. Surprise concealer line. At once obscures moist Essence Concealer'
Round shaped applicator that is perfect for flaws coverage.
1. Leaves moisturizing finish with honey nutrition essence.
2. Fits excellently and easy to re-apply on make-up.
3. Long-lasting and clean make-up that resists against sweat and sebum. Superior!
Comes in two shades:-
1호 라이트 베이지 Light Beige
2호 내추럴 베이지 Natural Beige
Contains 6g product.
How to use. Follow order of use : skincare, BB cream/foundation : Surprise Essence Concealer : Pact
Moisture & coverage is what I'm looking for! Most concealer I use leave my eyes look & feeling so dry ㅠㅠ
I chose light beige because its my skin tone & I need a light colour to use on my purple dark circles.
I think its probably the cutest concealer I've ever seen *0* The lace baby pink design reminds me of the Etude House Dear My Blooming Eyes Palette design~ (○´∀｀○)
This is the new packaging & it is definitely much cuter & princessy than the old packaging:-
I do not think any the formula & finish has changed though!~
The packaging is of hard plastic & it quite tiny at 8 ½ cm tall so its very handbagable & is in not much danger of being broken~

It is the most peculiar looking wand I've ever seen (´・ω・`) I've never seen anything like it but I get the general idea why its shaped this way! 'Round shaped applicator that is perfect for flaws coverage.'
The wider lower section of the wand, I think is to give extra coverage to large areas. Like bridge of nose? chin? （ ；´Д｀） I give up.
The wand is so fluffy & bouncy & soft & holds quite a amount of concealer! Easy to use too!~

It's sticky but good-sticky because that's the honey essence making the formula moistfull!~ The consistency is very light but it still has quite good coverage!
It's very easy to blend & leaves the skin look really smooth, dewy & leaves a great moisture on the skin.
See the dewy moisture? That's the concealer! (○´∀｀○) Oh course you can apply powder to mattify it! It does not cake up with powder or make the eyes look too dry.
It smells just like the SKIN79 Oriental Gold BB cream! Floral & such a sweet, delicate scent that dissipates when applied on face~ (｡・ω・｡)ﾉ
After doing skincare & apply base makeup with BBcream/Foundation. Apply concealer over blemish/dark circles. Pat to blend then set with powder.
On my eyes
Without concealer. My eyes do not look bad here because the flash washed them out but in real life, they are very bad & make me look so rough ㅠㅠ They are purple & sometimes even red-brown in worse cases!

I love how awake & brighter my eyes look after just three small dots of the concealer! It really took off the harsh edge of the purple on my eyes. I patted the dots with my ring finger & found this concealer spreads & blends so nicely & really quickly too!
My eyes feel & look a lot more moisturised & overall skintone looks more even around the eye area.
I do have fine lines around my aegyosal & normally concealer especially cream ones settles into them but this one does not! It's quite surprising actually because it's so dewy; I thought it would settle in the lines. I'm very happy it does not. (○´∀｀○)
Ohoho now you can see how purple - bad my dark circles are ㅠㅠ This concealer totally does it job.
Feeling human again! (´ ▽ ` )ﾉ (~-3-)~ I love that the colour of the concealer fits perfectly into my skin tone.
I broke out in papules a while back & they are still on my face but dead & dry & its totally bugging me. The rest of my face is fine apart from the blemish & dark circles! FFFFFUU
The colour has shown above did a pretty good job of hiding the dead blemish. It gave the best moisturse it could without making the dry skin of the blemish too visible~
I really like this concealer!
It brightens & relieves the dry dark areas of my eyes & doesn't make them look completely uneven off-colour with the rest of face. The colour of it matches my skin & keeps my eye area look clean for long periods of time which I much needed when I'm in the salon at college.
The formula of the concealer has a light consistency that is easily applied & layered & gives a really good, long-lasting coverage to blemishes/acne prone skin without exaggerating or caking over the problem.
It has such good moisture in it that does not dry my eyes/skin problems out more & make them flake. Despite the concealer being quite thin in consistency, it does not sink in fine lines & does not fade off too easily.
It gives a healthy dewy glow that can be easily covered with powder to mattify without caking or removing any moisture.
I love having dewy skin & I don't like powder on my eyes as it makes them really dry & horrible. The concealer however, on top of dewy skin without setting powder can fade off after about 3 hours so I have to touch up but with powder it lasts ages!~
I love the peculiar shaped wand applicator as it is really helpful for applying a precise amount of concealer on trouble spots without messing up other makeup.
Cute packaging & is travel friendly
Smells so nice~
The easy-to-use wand is a special shape to target flaws on point.
Comes in two shades that fit the face perfectly.
Brightens & conceals dark circles/blemishes really well without accentuating the problems.
Moisturisng & light formula to relieve dry skin/blemishes.
Does not cake when layered or powder applied on top.
Does not settle in fine lines.
Does not fade off too easily & it sweat/sebum proof.
Products build up around the tube so it can get quite messy & unhygienic.
Can fade off without powder within 3hrs +
People may prefer a more creamy concealer/
Not available in UK
Will I repurchase?
Yes I think I will! It's really working a charm on me this Fall! I recommend it to everyone especially if you have dry, dark circles like me!
