Favourite Concealer... At least for now...

I was so disappointed with The Body Shop Flawless Skin Protecting Concealer but bear with it for many months because I don't want to waste my money. I never wore any concealer before I got myself The Body Shop Flawless Skin Protecting Concealer even though I do wearing makeup everyday. Until I saw this great review on MyWomenstuff.

I was sold by ParisB's review, just look at the brilliance colors of the eyeshadows and how smooth the concealer is on her hand. I couldn't wait any longer. I rushed to the nearest I-Nuovi cosmetics counter after work and grabbed this...

I-Nuovi Undercover Under-Eye Dark Circle Concealer. I love this babe so much. A little bit goes a long way. My color is 2Y, which is also the lightest color available. The texture is slightly fluid and it goes smoothly along my undereye. It doesn't cakes on me or settle into fine lines like The Body Shop Flawless Skin Protecting Concealer. There are some hints of shimmer and light particles to brighten up my undereye so that I won't look tired. It is easy to use, u know I'm lazy and most important thing is the color suits me better. I-Nuovi Undercover Under-Eye Dark Circle Concealer in color 2Y is some kind of peachy-yellow while The Body Shop Flawless Skin Protecting Concealer is only yellowish. I think yellow makes my skin look dull and tired, I don't know why or that's my imagination ? I never learnt how to select correct shade of foundations and concealer, if you have any easy to understand theories, please let me know as I always ended up buying wrong shades. Hahaha...

I like the facts that this concealer is light, smooth and never dries on my undereye. Unlike my previous concealer, this one doesn't get patchy and cakey. One thing I must clarify here is I only use concealer on undereye area thus I don't have any idea whether it helps on blemishes or scars. The retail price for I-Nuovi Undercover Under-Eye Dark Circle Concealer is RM60.00 / USD16.50 but from what I saw on their official website is USD19.00. I've seen I-Nuovi products in certains Sasa and some Metrojaya Departmental stores but I don't think it's available in every Sasa and Metrojaya.

I'll definitely repurchase this product unless I can find something else better than this concealer. I'm quite interested in Bobbi Brown and MUFE concealer too... Kekeke...

I've bought some eyeshadows together with concealer. I'll do the review tomorrow as I'm rushing out now...


  1. Sounds good!concealer makes such a big difference!I used to wear make up too without concealer before i buy my MAC, and when i tried i was amazed, it brightens the whole face!
    I will try the MUFE eyeliner btw, and the next on my list is the Stila, although it's expensive!

  2. sorry to hear that the body shop one didn't work out, but at least you got something better now =)

  3. Yes... I'm quite happy with I Nuovi concealer for now...the next item I'm searching for is a good foundation...I've been trying for liquid foundation but seems I can't get them evenly & smooth...

  4. Hi,

    Glad you reviewed this, I bought it at the I Nuovi sale but haven't used it yet. But I bought in 3Y. hopefully will be ok for me.

    I tested it out at the store, 3Y seems ok. gonna try it later when I go out.

    I blogged about YSL workshop I attended last week. Do drop by.... :)

  5. oh, the concealer looks great..hmm, i think Sasa carry this brand if I'm not mistaken.
    I don't have any concealer yet, don't know which one to buy...blur@__#

    anyhow, this is a great post. Thanks ya

  6. ning*star: I think Sasa is having 31% off for I Nuovi concealer... go and grab one.. it's only RM41.40... I got mine few months ago and paid for the original price which is RM60.00


Thanks for dropping me some words. I'm very much appreciate your comments and share your thoughts with me. Do always come back for more!
