San San HD Concealer


I am not really planning of purchasing a new concealer because it's Frugal February and I'm in a shopping ban but when I came across and saw this "HD Line" from HBC I thought I'd give them a try since I have been seeing a lot of local bloggers posting good reviews about San San's high definition line. It is very affordable too that's why I did not hesitate anymore to spend and give one of the products in the line, the this HD concealer a shot.



THE PACKAGING:
One thing I HATE about San San cosmetics ever since is their packaging (referring to the light blue plastic packaging here) but with this one I am really impressed. The metallic purple packaging made the product look really expensive. The concealer comes in a twist-pen type applicator which I do love and prefer as it is more convenient to bring around.

The only thing I dislike about this pen is that the hole in it is pretty big. It tends to dispense quite a lot of product so you really need to be careful when twisting this pen.

THE SHADES:
There are only there shades available — Natural, Beige and Olive. I believe I got the wrong shade (Olive) and let's blame the yellow-ish lighting of the store. Olive is a tad bit dark for my skin. Beige I suppose is the perfect shade for me as it is much lighter compared with this one.

Talking about shades, I hope they will soon have a wider range of concealer and foundation shades. Three shades is not enough. Raise your hand if you agree!

THE SCENT:
The concealer is unscented which I really liked. I stay away from scented scented (except lip products) cosmetics since it can cause headache and breakouts.

THE FORMULA and LONGEVITY:
The formula is matte which I like because I have an oily skin. The consistency of this concealer is a little thicker (but does not feel heavy) compared to the other concealers I am using but just enough to be able to properly cover my dark spots and blemishes. It dries quickly too so I suggest that you use your fingers for blending this one as it warms the product and makes the application a lot easier. As for the staying power, the San San HD Concealer lasts for a good 4-5 hour on me and I only experience very minimal creasing after. Swiping powder can combat the creasing so no biggie.

THE VERDICT:
Overall, I am really impressed with this San San HD concealer and I am for sure, going to re-purchase this one (lighter shade this time!). The packaging is really nice and it's performance is really great considering its price Php 105.00 (approx. $2.50). I might try the liquid foundation from this HD line too since it looks promising as well.

  4. Too bad we don't have this brand here... I really like concealers that come in that type of packaging like the YSL Touche Eclat.

  14. Great review! I've heard their foundations are great. Sayang dapat pala I get some na when I pass by HBC, super layo kasi from me ng branch nila. I think you try Natural because of your fair complexion. Beige for medium skintone I think. The coverage is good ha considering the price. I also love pen-type products as I no longer need a makeup brush in hand.

  15. Nice review! Pareho tayo I really don't like their packaging pero nag level up na sila and that's why I'm thinking of buying na rin haha plus madami nga nagsasabi na this product and also the foundation is realy good. You're so white kasi eh most of the girls I know suited sa kanila ung olive na shade and lagi daw oos ung shade na nakuha mo good thing it's cheap or else sayang naman kasi wrong shade nakuha mo, maybe you can use it some other way. :)

  19. This is great! I've been looking for a good concealer, one that's not gonna break my budget either, and your review really came in handy. to be honest, I've never really used any concealers. because I thought foundations can magically remove some shameful mess in your facial skin, thought there are some products that does the hiding nice but I guess it's time to use a concealer...

  20. I've tried this before at HBC and its great! Their bb and cream foundation is also a must have. Maybe I'll hoard next time. :) Im not into concealer but maybe i'll give this a try since mura lang naman sya.

  29. Hi,

    Is this suitable for oily or acne prone skin? I don't have severe acne or some sort. But during the monthly thing pimples tend to show up leaving dark spots or blemish. Does this cover well on those? Thanks!

  30. Pwede po ba gamitin to ng mga acne prone skin? Natatakpan po ba yung pimple? May pimple kasi ako sa noo , gusto ko takpan :(

  32. I just bought this HD Concealer in Natural Shade.. It only conceals dark blemishes lightly. It's a fail. Plus I hate the fact that they keep increasing the prices of their products. i.e San San HD concealer priced at 105 pesos before now 119 pesos.. Huge difference.
