Sonia Kashuk Hidden Agenda Concealer Palette Review

9:11:00 AM

I'm not that really particular with concealers before, but when I started experiencing breakouts last year, I was left with pimple scars and so my hunt for a good concealer began.

There were so many choices from different brands, but I was looking for something affordable with really great quality. That's when I remembered that Youtube Beauty Guru xteeener really loved the Sonia Kashuk Hidden Agenda Concealer Palette. I've read a lot of good reviews about this concealer palette as well, so I was convinced to give it a try.

Product Info from Sonia Kashuk

This concealer works to minimize the appearance of dark circles, fine lines and skin imperfections while offering an overall smooth and polished finish. Two shades of concealer make it possible to custom-blend your own shade. Rich in treatment ingredients this palette contains: Jojobal Oil, Horse Chestnut Extract and Apricot Oil for smoothing and emollient properties; Vitamins A, C & E protect with anti-oxidant and anti-aging action and the colorless powder smoothes skin and offers hydrating properties for a natural and bright finish.

This palette consists of three concealers and one powder. 

I've been using this palette ever since I got it last August 2014. So far, it's been a life saver! I love the consistency and formulation of this palette.

The consistency is really creamy and smooth which makes it very easy to blend. Contrary to what you expect, it is not as thick as other cream concealers. What's even better is that it has excellent coverage, so I don't need much to cover my pimple marks or my under eye dark circles. It also stays long around 6 hours on me before it starts to fade, but note that I have to set this with a powder foundation in order for it to last.

Here is the Sonia Kashuk Conceler Palette in action. That is my bare face on the left side with all the pimple scars and on the right side, you will notice how my pimple scars were perfectly covered. They will all look even and flawless after I've set them with my powder foundation.

What I like about it...
* inexpensive at only $10.50 approximately Php 472
* has three different concealer shades which you can mix as well
* has a colorless setting powder for dark circles
* has a sleek and convenient packaging, which makes it very easy to travel with
* stays for a good 5 to 6 hours on my before it starts to fade
* has soft, smooth and creamy consistency
* since this has a fine texture, it is very easy to blend and layer
* has a faint scent but barely noticeable
* I did not experience any irritation or allergies with this concealer

What I don't like...
* not easily accessible for us here in PH

My rating: 5 / 5

So my verdict is already obvious, I absolutely love this stuff! Even my besty and fellow freelance Make-up Artist Khymm really likes it. She has seen and experienced how effortless it is to cover blemishes and pimples with this palette. If you are looking for something that is affordable with excellent quality, this would be it. This is Hollie approved and would definitely recommend it.

Until next time.

  4. Wow. :D I wished I could also get it from Target :D

  5. It sounds perfect, but I'm worried because it says on the label that you're not supposed to use it on the eye and lip area?? Why do you think that is?

    1. @Tellie, that made me worry at first. So, I just followed their instructions. I don't use it on my under eye area or lip area at all. I use this mainly for my pimple scars. So far, it's been great for that purpose.

  6. Ouuu, sounds promising! I've actually heard mixed reviews about this palette, which has made me hesitant. Don't know how I'll get on with having 4 concealer shades as well (TOO N00B TO BE MIXING UP SHADES). Coverage looks pretty amazing though!

    1. @Vanessa, It's actually 3 concealer shades, the 4th one is a setting powder with a hint of shimmer. I only ever need to mix shades if the none of the shades fits my client. hehe

  7. Ang ganda ng effect! Now I know why I see this on mua kit of my friends maganda pala talaga siya. I like the salmon peach perfect sa dark circles ko :) I think meron nito si bon marche, I have to check! :)
