I reviewed Skin Food Salmon Dark Circle Concealer Cream a few weeks ago and today I’ll be bringing you the good word on Skin Food Salmon Dark Circle Powder.
Have a peep after the jump!
First off contrary to the name, Salmon, it does not smell fishy hehe. I had a few questions asking if it had a funky smell and no it doesn’t.
Secondly, Skin Food is an organic range of cosmetics and skincare that’s sold through out Asia but is originally from Korea. The concealer and powder retail for around $6-$7 in Korea which is what I paid for it as a friend was kind enough to snag me the products (Thanks Bora). I have seen both the concealer and powder on E-bay for around $12-$15 (includes shipping). Honestly, I think both are worth that price as they are quality items. I just wanted to give you an option where you might purchase should you want the powder after my review.
So what is the powder?
It’s a simple pale yellow sheer powder that you can use to brighten your eye area or to set your concealer and most important, it’s awesome.
I can’t sing my praises enough for this stuff. The color manages to make my eyes look brighter, masks my puffiness, and creates a smooth, flawless finish.
The formula is very light, very sheer, and very subtle so it pretty much feels and looks like you’re not wearing anything at all. Even my terribly dry eyes take quite well to smoothing a bit of this under my eyes. It doesn’t age me nor does it settle into fine lines. It does however make my eyes look brighter and erases any signs of age or tiredness. It also manages to set my concealer for long wear.
I blame the very pale yellow formula for it’s ability to mask dark circles as it creates the illusion of a fresher look under my eyes. Paired up with concealer you should be able to see visible results. The beauty of the product is it’s ability to also mask my puffiness when all else fails.
It comes with a tiny puff to pat the powder on but I prefer using the fluffy side of my Bobbi Brown dual sided concealer brush to apply. Any brush such as a blending one works best as it picks up a little powder and buffs it on very gently. The puff is cute but somewhat useless.
Overall, I’m absolutely in love with this stuff. It does exactly what it promises and does so on the cheap which is always a welcome relief. I love how it brightens and makes me look fresh, awake, and flawless.
Good stuff and a big Muse Approval for purchase.
Likey very much!
I know I have a fair few Korean readers so someone must have scored this by now, do share
