Sana Make Essence Concealer

You do realize I’m not NEARLY done with my concealer reviews right?

I got a ton more up my sleeve, I’ve just been giving you a breather in between!

I now have my eye on Sana Make Essence Concealer which is a yellow based concealer for concealing dark circles.

Sana Excel already makes a compact concealer for 800 yen that I have yet to try however the regular Sana brand has this new Make Essence Concealer that caught my eye since it has such a strong yellow base which is good for reflecting off of dark shadows and circles while concealing them up.

I’ll have to get my hands on some of this soon and review because I’m curious how good it is! The normal Sana line up is pretty good so I suspect that perhaps Sana Make Essence Concealer will be just as good.

If you live in Japan this is available now for 950 yen at a local drugstore! I believe it’s brand new as this is the first time I’ve seen it.

Review to follow shortly!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

  • Laura

    It’s a Babara Daly for Tesco one. So, not available in the US.
    I would offer to CP you one, but it’s a gift with purchase and not available to buy on it’s own 🙁

    I’ll have to take a photo for you sometime when I find my camera 😉

  • the Muse

    ooo sounds lovely!

    Aw thanks sweet I do appreciate it if it was possible 🙂 and you know the offer stands here.

    I also still have a packkie to send you 🙁 just been to busy to get to the post yak!

    I’d love a pic 🙂

  • Decorative Diva

    I LOVE the packaging on this! It’s so cute! I love how the bear is a sad bear and then goes to happy sparkly dancing bear!

  • MandyPandy

    I’ll have to try this stuff sometime; I hate looking like a tired-ass teddy-bear.

    Hello, I have been reading your blog for a while to get my beauty fix while I am deployed… it is my first time posting though. (^_^)

    Okay, so my question is, how do I get some of this? Despite my undereye circles I don’t really know what to do with concealer, and if anything can make me try it is a super-cute Japanese one!

    So, any clues for the clueless (me)?

    By the way Muse, you are absolutely lovely and thank you for all the reviews and FOTDs and all… you are definitely enabling me on many things here. Thanks to you my 30th birthday present to myself was Chanel Smokey Eyes. (^_~)

  • mumo

    I’m cosme blogger in Japan.
    I love your blog! and check everyday.

    SANA’s AD, Do you know why a bear appeared?
    Bear and dark circle are the same words in Japanese! 🙂

  • the Muse

    hello Jonnie!

    Thanks so much for reading my blog XD!

    I have friends that live in Japan and they ship me over items I want 🙂 However, I do have a Japanese Cosmetic Buying Guide have you read it? That could be helpful in locating some products 🙂

    Thank you so so so so much Jonnie! Your comment made my day *hugs*

    Aw fantastic! Enjoy your Chanel palette 🙂 It’s gorgeous 🙂 I’m sure you look quite wonderful in it 🙂

    I hope you’ll stop by more often to comment, I’d love to talk to you again soon!

    Big Hugs!
    Enabling awayyyyyy!

  • the Muse

    ohayou gozaimasu mumo!

    It’s a great honor to have a Japanese blogger stop by and comment 🙂

    I had no idea that bear and dark circle is the same word in japanese 🙂 lol that explains the very cute packaging everyone is so excited about hehe!

    Thanks for sharing that with us 🙂

    I’ve just linked you up on my “link love” list.

    I only speak a little Japanese and can definately not read it but I have a translation tool that will come in handy when I visit a your blog 🙂

    Thanks for dropping by!

    Big Hugs!

  • Jonnie

    Okay, I read all your posts on ordering Japanese cosmetics and I have now ordered myself some of this concealer… okay, and also Sana Extra Large Mascara (I couldn't resist!)… I can't wait to get it!

    Everyone is right, the bear is so kawaii! (^_^)

    I will try to comment as much as possible. I think your blog is going to make me poor though. (>_<) I forgot to mention that you have also talked me into buying MAC Lipglass in Jampacked this past week as well (you just looked so beautiful in it! I have blue eyes and light brownish hair, but I have the same pale skin as you so it has to be as good for me, right?)… (^_^)

  • the Muse

    hi there jonnie!

    Fantastic!!!!!!!! 🙂 Did you get it at an ok price? I can’t wait to hear about it. You’ll prob have it before me so please stop back and tell me the good word!

    The bloody bear has us all hyper lol!

    Thanks so much 😉 I love talking to my readers!

    LOL I’m so sorry, alot of people tell me I’ll be the death of their purses 🙂

    Oh I sure do hope you love mac jampacked! I think it’ll look lovely with your hair and skin! 😉

    Jampacked was a fav of mine…it looks like purple but it’s much more red than people realize 🙂 Yummie goodness!

    Enjoy your gorgeous purchases!

  • Jonnie

    It was on sale for $13 USD including shipping, normally on the site for $15.50 USD, again including shipping. I just hope it ships to my APO address quickly! I can’t wait (I think I said that two posts ago. (^_~) )!

  • the Muse

    hi jonnie!

    Not too bad!!!!!! That’s only a few dollars above retail 🙂

    It should arrive quickly if you got it from who I think you did 🙂

    LOL it’s ok…it deserves a repeat 🙂 cosmetics are too exciting not to be hyper about their arrival 🙂


  • Jonnie

    Definitely exciting, especially super-cute Japanese ones! Add in that I have been deployed since January, so I have had only 16 days this ENTIRE YEAR to wear makeup, and you see why I am so darn excited. Of course, I still have until December before I get to be in the real world again, but I am getting ready for all the wonderful new makeup I am going to be trying out! Yeah!

  • the Muse

    Hi Jonnie!!!!!

    Oh TONS of Japanese ones 🙂 I’ll have reviews soon for the Japanese Holiday Collections yay!

    Sheesh it must be so hard not only makeup wise but just your duties and the stress!

    LOL 🙂 I look forward to seeing you deployed, at home, and enjoying cosmetics soon 😉
