Etude House Surprise Concealer Kit #1 Flaw Coverage [review]

Hello hello everyone~ :)
For me who tend to sleep late everyday, concealer is a MUST! Most of you may have known about this product already~ It's Surprise Concealer Kit from Etude House~
It's not a secret anymore.. Etude House is my most favorite Korean Brand :p I've tried their old Surprise Concealer Stick before and I love it! Due to enthusiasm of Surprise Concealer lover, Etude keep releasing their Surprise Concealer line with the latest packaging. Last year they also released concealer kit for complementing Surprise Concealer line ^_^

Based on Etude House's information, this Surprise Concealer Kit is having same coverage like Surprise Concealer Stick's, and having good moisturizing effect. Let's check it out~ :D

It comes in very handy packaging, its lid is flip-able and mirror is included in this kit.
The packaging is dominated with pink color and cute design on the front ^_^

#1 Flaw Coverage [Cover Spots]
A + B = mix

#2 Dark Circle Brightening
Step 1: Peach color
Step 2: Beige color

How to use
1. Dark Circle Brightening
- Do base make-up with make-up base, foundation or BB cream.
- Mix 2 colors in the concealer kit, and create color to fit your skin tone.
- Apply on areas where you want to cover.

2. Spot Cover

- Apply small amount of peach color on dark circle area under eye. 
- Apply small amount of beige color on peach color.

* For more easy application, use with brush.

Texture & Scent
Its texture isn't creamy as Revlon Photoready Concealer, but has similar consistency with Etude House Surprise Concealer Stick. Its texture is quite thick, but still easy to blend. I don't like its scent.. just like chemical scent :/


To be honest, I just realized that I bought wrong shade after I used it for several times ( ._.)/|
I bought it as pre-loved product with cheap price from my fellow blogger, Gita B; without thinking twice XD Well, this concealer still effective for my dark circle though!
After trial and tested, I found the better way to apply this concealer kit for my dark circle.. 
I only use darker shade of this kit to conceal my dark circle, let's take a look how it looks on my bad dark circles! :D

much better, isn't it?
Overall Thoughts
This Surprise Concealer Kit #1 does a great job to cover my dark circle area (despite of its main purpose is not for brightening dark circles XD). It doesn't cakey (for me) and doesn't sink into fine lines. The downsides of this concealer is its quite thick consistency, weird scent and makes my eyes feel uncomfortable after long usage. I quite like this concealer, but unfortunately it's not my favorite.

What I love 
+ Affordable price
+ Cute packaging design
+ Available in 2 shades
+ Quite easy to blend

What I hate :/
- Quite thick texture
- Weird scent
- Makes my eyes feel uncomfortable after long usage (itchy!)
