Korres Wild Rose concealer review


Apart from the Korres lip balms that I love and use daily, I consider myself a Korres makeup virgin ;)
Odd I know, since I shop most of my skincare products from Korres...

So as I was running low on my favourite Lightening Touch from TBS (aka YSL Touche Eclat dupe), I thought "what the heck, I'll go for the Korres equivalent this time".

    Korres Wild Rose concealer- 4 shades available; aprox. 13E

To tell you the truth, I'm a little dissapointed in this product :(

The thing is, I made a mistake by thinking that the built-in brush packaging would necessarily mean the product can be used like Touche Eclat, which is a light to medium coverage concealer to highlight facial features and under the eye area.

I was terribly wrong, this stuff is heavy duty-
which works perfectly fine for my acne scars, but under the eyes-
oh goodness, what a horrible mess!

Picture it:
as the product dries relatively fast, the pigments settle on "areas" under the eyes, making it impossible to blend the concealer to an even finish...
Which results to a blotchy, yucky under eye area and my dark circles accentuated even more :(

Oh, did I mention it only contains 1.5 ml of product?
Yeah, not exactly a value-for-money product...

Still, it's quite efficient at covering my acne scars-
so I'm going to use this sucker up (it must contain up to a month's supply) and then I'm off to something else...

There you go, my two cents on the Korres Wild Rose concealer ;)

Are you fans of highlighting concealers like Touche Eclat?
Any favourites you'd like to share?

  1. Well I have the Korres Vitamin Concealer in Neutral CC2 which is 1,5ml too (same packaging but white) but it lasted me for a long time as I use it as a highlighter now and then. I have some bad eye bags and it doesn't do much for that, but I love its colour for highlighting cheekbones,chin and nose.As a concealer I use mac's Select Cover-up in NC20 which is very good.

  2. Ah this must be old and discontinued, I can't find it on the website! They always discontinue the good stuff :(

  3. Ok you it's not a total failure you can still use it for your ance scars! I have the touche eclat and I use it only as a highlighter but it's to expensive! My next purchase is Cl iniques airbrush concealer which costs 20 euros in strawberrynet.com with free shipping! I have read good reviews for that!

  4. I have to try the Lightening Touch from TBS! I bought this one too and I'm happy with it. Not as a highlighter, as a concealer. I use it under my eyes and then use a fluffy eye brush to blend it, the brush on the concealer doesn't blend at all!

  5. είχα πάρει ένα ανάλογο της estee lauder. αχρησιμοποιήτο έμεινε και αυτά λήγουν και σε 6 μήνες, οπότε απλά το πέταξα.

  6. i have also used both of them (TBS and Korres)! they are totally different products,the Body Shop is highlighting while the korres one is concealing. For my bad under eye circles both were pretty much useless!Body shop covered nothing(but had a lovely packaging!) and korres creases a bit...for acne i m using really hardcore stuff!hehe... :)
    I would repurchase the body shop one though because it was so cute and so shiny!!!

  7. @Demi, yeah I've seen Lisa Eldridge&the Pixiwoos using this Clinique concealer. So it must be good! Please let us know how it turns out!

    @Natalie, oh I'm happy it works for you! I'll try blending it in with an eyeshadow brush ;)

    @efi, α ναι βέβαια, οτιδήποτε χρησιμοποιείται γύρω από την περιοχή των ματιών πρέπει να το πετάμε μετά από 6 μήνες... Υπάρχουν και οι πιο σκληροπυρηνικοί που μιλούν για 3 μήνες ή ακόμη και για 1!

    @afro, I see you have a soft spot for the Body Shop highlighter, like me! It does an excellent job at highlighting shallow areas AND it contains double the amount of product! I'll definitely repurchase it too, sometime...

  9. όχι, δεν ισχύει, τα κλασικά κονσίλερ έχουν χρόνο ζωής 24 μήνες. μόνο αυτά που είναι και καλά για λάμψη λήγουν στο 6μηνο!

  11. I have touche eclat but it really settles in the lines under my eyes no matter how little I use. But I always end up buying one from duty free just because I can I think! How stupid :D

  12. @Blushingloves Irene Greece, no way- 8E for a Korres pencil?!? That's totally unjustified!

    @efi, α... Περίεργο! Αφού μιλάμε για το ίδιο προϊόν πάνω-κάτω, γιατί το ένα διαρκεί 24 μήνες και το άλλο μόνο 6;;;

    @CookingChinchillas, oh thanks for the info doll!
