Review- KohGenDo Moisture Concealer for Professional

New moisture concealer with a perfect texture for application and a gentle formulation for your skin that includes pearl powders for great coverage, a soft texture that allows easy application and ingredients that are gentle to your skin. Refresh your skin with a new sheer feel and natural look. Cover your areas like a pro! Gentle moisturizing botanical ingredients take care of areas prone to dryness, such as under the eyes, where concealers are usually most needed.
The compact also contains extra room to mix the two concealer tones in order to create the perfect shade for you. $48 for .14 oz

You know how a good concealer is second only to a good pair of jeans? I mean I have gone through so many brands, consistencies and styles of applicator (pencil, tube with sponge wand, synthetic-haired brush) ending up looking behind at a well-traveled road littered with dashed hopes and deflated possibilities. It wasn't until I became a makeup artist that I finally realized that creme concealers are the way to go no matter what (with the exception of the elite Alison Raffaele True Concealer but that's another story altogether). KohGenDo has clearly embraced this formulation, too. Not only that, but they are professional enough to allow someone the chance to conceal dark circles (lighter than skin tone) AND blemishes/discolorations (darker than skin tone). I guess that's all to be expected when they boast that the result of using this concealer could previously only be achieved by sitting in a makeup artist's chair. So we've covered the "professional" part of the name, let's touch on the "moisture" thing. This stuff is moisturizing not in that greasy, slippery way but in that luscious, good-for-your-skin way. For instance, there's shea butter in it. It doesn't get shiny or fall into creases throughout the day and only needs your usual setting powder applied after you put it on to keep it working well. Can you tell that I highly reco this product? Particularly if you feel the same way about the value of an impeccable concealer.

Trish says: I really love this concealer! It does feel like you're using a product that is very professional grade and performs just as well as any expert's tool would! The best part (besides working better than most concealers available) is that typical concealers usually make my skin look ashy or the spot I'm trying to conceal ends up looking a lot more obvious, but with the KohGenDo concealer, it blended so well that it really did conceal and smoothen at the same time. It's a great tool to have and with such a fine, silky finish, I'm not so worried about needing to use concealer anymore- because it really works that well and makes the spot not only disappear, but also look seamless. This stuff really rocks!
