Missha Cover Maestro Tip Concealer 17 Pianissimo Review:
I guess I was so late in discovering this concealer because when I was browsing to find a good Korean concealer to replace my beloved A’Pieu moist creamy concealer, this showed up with the most good reviews. Everyone was talking and did review on it and I wonder how I didn’t hear anything about it before. Even Morgan from TheBeautyBreakdown, my favorite Youtuber, said that this concealer is pretty good and didn’t crease on her. I was sold once I saw her review about it.
The price is very affordable for a product from Missha and I’m happy to see that they have more than 2 shades available. I always had a hard time in finding the perfect concealer shade for me since I need a lighter shade than my skin tone because I used concealer to highlight my under eyes area. That’s why I’m excited to see they have a shade light enough!
If I’m not mistaken, they also have the pot/cream version of this concealer but in my experience, cream concealer never worked on me so I picked the liquid version. Just for information, a cream concealer usually has more coverage than a liquid one so if you like this concealer but need a better coverage, maybe you can try the pot version.

Missha Cover Maestro Tip Concealer 17 Pianissimo Review:
I never tried concealer from Missha before so I didn’t know what to expect from this product aside from the reviews I read on the internet. But as expected from Missha, they always have a good quality packaging and nice feeling to it.
For this concealer, it has a nice frosted-effect bottle and you can see the shade from the outside. The amount of the product inside also more than most concealers have so for this price, I think it’s pretty good.
There’s a doe-foot applicator inside and it picks up a lot of product, but I prefer this type of applicator though because it means I have enough to apply on my both under eyes without having to dip the applicator several times. The shape also helps in applying the product evenly thanks to its shape.
My excitement went down after I swatch the shade on my hand because turn out the shade is way too yellow on me. My hand right now is a bit more tan than usual because I stand too long under the sun but it still look on my tan hand so I can’t imagine how dark it is under my eyes.
Surprisingly, it doesn’t look too bad and it doesn’t look as dark on my under eyes! It still brighten those areas but I have to use it under the foundation to conceal the yellow tone in it. I don’t mind it too much because even though it’s not as bright as I wanted, it still do its job.
The more surprising thing is how it doesn’t crease and not drying at all even with the super matte finish. When I swatch it, I thought it would be a concealer that will crease after a few hours of wearing because it’s too matte but I was wrong.
It’s blend easily, looks smooth, and it doesn’t sink into my fine lines under my eyes! Some matte concealers I’ve tried before always make my under eyes look bad and cakey so I’m excited to see this one doesn’t act like that.
I always used a damp beauty sponge to apply concealer because the water in the sponge can help the concealer blend better and look more moisturized but this time, I used a sponge on one side of my under eyes and use a dense flat top brush on the other side.
The result is, the side with beauty sponge looks more dewy with less coverage compared to the other side. The side with a brush is more matte with fuller coverage. Because I love more dewy and natural under eyes, I prefer using a damp beauty sponge.
I didn’t expect to see that this concealer last pretty well all day. Because I have a lot of fine lines under my eyes along with some dryness, usually concealer will start to crease after 2 to 3 hours but not with this one. Even when I wear it for all day (about 6 – 7 hours I believe) it still look smooth. It doesn’t oxidize either so my under eyes still look bright until the end of the day.
In conclusion, I can say that this concealer may be my next new favorite concealer. The only thing I don’t like is the shade but the qualities are superb. It’s not drying, not cakey, not patchy, doesn’t sink into my fine lines, blend easily, and lasts all day.
It’s rare to find another concealer that works great on me besides my favorite one Innisfree My Concealer but I think I find a new one, even with better performance!
If you are looking for a good concealer for under eyes area, I think you will like it but if you have fairer complexion than me, you will have a hard time in finding the shade that will work on you because the shades are not true to what they show on the website. My suggestion is to go to their physical shop and swatch it by yourself to find the perfect shade.
