Innisfree My Concealer Wide Cover C13 Review:
Not too long ago, Innisfree launched a new concealer collection ‘My Concealer’. The collection consist of cream and liquid concealer, along with 2 correctors for dark circles. A concealer is a must-have in my makeup collection as I have a really severe panda eyes so I always have to cover up those areas with a brightening concealer. The problem is because I have fair skin tone, it’s hard for me to find a concealer that light enough for me.
So far, a concealer that work really well on me from Korean brand is Etude House. I’ve tried other brands too of course but only the Big Cover Skin Fit from Etude can brighten my under eyes without looking too cakey or creasing.
Innisfree promoting this collection with the help of several famous Korean beauty influencers including Ssin-nim, who is my favorite! On Innisfree’s website, you can see a tutorial and description about each concealer and if you are a beginner, I think it would help so much. They also put a swatch photo there but if you have deep skin tone, you will have a hard time in finding your perfect shade as the shade range is too limited.

Innisfree My Concealer Wide Cover C13 Review:
I remember Innisfree already have several concealers before but they never attracted me that much because of the limited shade (2 – 3 shades only) and most of them are too dark for my complexion thus I’m pretty excited to see finally Innisfree come out with a brand new concealer with a wider shade range.
It’s not perfect as the shades lean on fair to light skin tone only but let’s hope they will make more shade in the future.
As for the packaging, I really like it. It has a frosted bottle vibe to it with a black lid which makes the packaging looks more expensive than its real price.
It has a triangle applicator shape exactly like a sword but it’s more flexible than I thought. It picks up enough product and I don’t know if it’s only me but the applicator feels gentle on my under eyes.
Just for information, the skin on our eyes area is very thin so you have to be very gentle and avoid rubbing it or you will get soggy skin on those area.
I pick up shade C13 and it is the fairest shade out of 8 shades. They have C shade for cool undertone and N shade for neutral undertone. Usually I always pick neutral tone but because the lightest shade on the neutral category is not as fair as the C13, I decided to get the later instead.
On me the shade C13 is the perfect brightening shade thanks to its neutral with slightly pink tone in it so if you have similar skin tone with me (fair with neutral – yellow undertone) then it can be your perfect option if you want something to brighten your under eyes.
Among those 8 shades, there are 2 salmon/orange shade to correct dark circles and 1 green beige shade so if you prefer a color corrector, you can find it in this collection.
To conceal dark under eyes, we can use a salmony or orange color corrector but somehow it never works on me. With orange corrector, it makes my eyes area look darker and ashy so I prefer to use the lightest shade instead.
For its coverage, I think it has a good coverage as it can cover my pimples and dark spots but if you have severe acne scars, you need several layers to build up the coverage to be able to hide those imperfections. If you have redness on the side of your nose or on your chin like I do, this concealer also cover those areas pretty well.
The texture may be the one of the best I’ve ever tried from a liquid concealer! It’s not thick but it’s not thin either, it has a perfect creaminess and it needs no effort to blend. I apply the concealer under my eyes, on the side of my nose, on my chin, and my forehead at the same time to test how fast it will set on my face.
Turns out it won’t set until you blend it into the skin, which makes it really easy to blend because you have so much time in blending the concealer.
My favorite way to blend it is by using a dampened beauty sponge. I know that on some beauty influencer’s video they told us to blend with a brush to get the maximum coverage but because I have a lot of fine lines under my eyes, using a brush will make the concealer crease and sink into those lines and makes me look older than my actual age. Not only that, it can leave brush stroke all over those area especially if you have bad brush.
With a wet sponge, the concealer can blend into the skin more naturally and give you a hint of luminous finish. This concealer has a satin finish but I love a luminous finish because it helps my skin look younger and more fresh. If you don’t like dewy concealer, you can try using a brush (but with risk of the concealer can crease) or you can set it with powder just like I do.
If I have time, I will set the concealer with a loose powder because it can make your concealer stay all day without any creasing at all! But if you don’t have too much time, just use a pact powder but choose one with thin and soft texture so it won’t look heavy and cakey. This concealer takes time to crease at least on me, but I would suggest you to set it so it will look good all day.
I guess I found a new concealer that will replace the one I love from Etude. With how it works on my skin, it is definitely suit people with heavy dark under eyes like me.
The price is pretty affordable as well (and to be honest the quality is better than my more expensive concealer!). So will I repurchase if I run out of it? I love this concealer so of course!
