SEVENTEEN Skin Wow*

Saturday, 19 November 2016
First off I have to say thank you to the gorgeous model starring in this post; it is of course my cat Nessie who was very happy to do nothing while I photographed her. Today I am going to be talking about a concealer I've been testing out lately which is the SEVENTEEN Skin Wow concealer*.


Now the packaging is very similar to a famous YSL highlighter but don't mistake this as a dupe, it is very much not a light, highlighter. The casing is gold plastic and doesn't feel particularly luxurious but it's not by any means the worst packaging in the drugstore. It works via clicking the bottom to dispense product which seems like a good idea but personally I'm not a fan as I find I always dispense too much and waste a lot, however I suppose it carries less bacteria than a doe foot applicator so I see its benefit.


The product itself is quite a high coverage concealer. It's thick and creamy and blends out well but because of the thicker texture it takes longer than some of its thinner but equal in coverage counterparts. I can't really fault the coverage it covers most blemishes I have easily. The only real problem I have with the concealer is the shade range. Fair, which I have is too dark for me so porcelain girls will not be able to get on board with this particular concealers. Then there's the issue of the lack of darker shades too which I think the drugstore really needs to sort, and soon.


Basically, if you're not super pale this shade will probably work as a highlighting concealer, or just to conceal blemishes, if not it's not going to work for you. It's from the drugstore so it won't break the bank if you do want to try it.

  1. Ahh I've bought this about three times already because I LOVE it! For me the shade Fair is an amazing brightening shade, but I can see how if you're paler then it wouldn't work as well. Hopefully they increase the shade range as I'm honestly such a fan, it's a shame that you're not getting it in its full glory :)
