Makeup Review Part 1: Krave Minerale Correct & Conceal


I love skin care products and yes I do love cosmetics but I'm not much of a makeup person. I do visit makeup blogs but I'm not fond of watching makeup tutorials on Youtube. In short, I'm a late bloomer when in comes to makeup - but hey!  I'm starting to learn how to do it. 


As a start, Ms. Dee of Skye Avenue gave me a chance to review some of their on-hand items such as Krave Minerale Correct & Conceal (concealer),  Krave Minerale Oil Eliminator & Skin Hydrator (primer & finishing veil) , Krave Satin Sheer in Eclairs (Eyeshadow) and Krave Minerale Moisturizing Lip Shimmer in Chili Red.

Okay. Let's start with my Makeup Review Part 1: Krave Minerale Correct & Conceal. 


Description: Hate spots? Correct & conceal them up completely and get rid of them instantly. It does not only erase spots but it also helps to soothe and repair the skin with the addition of Levomenol, Allantoin, Golden Jojoba Oil and ProVitamin B5.

We use only the highest botanicals, natural plant waxes, oils and pure mineral pigments to create a luxurious, promising mineral stick concealer. Correct & Conceal stick has a "drier" texture when applied, making it "stick"' to the area of facial imperfection.

Krave Minerale's Correct & Conceal is the first and the only brand of Concealer Stick in the Philippines that has skin regeneration, anti-bacterial, potent skin moisturizer, aids in the reduction of acne & regulates sebum production, all of these in just 1 stick.

Key Ingredients: Golden jojoba, Levomenol, allantoin & provitamin B5

  1. ALLANTOIN which comes form the comfrey root used for its healing, moisturizing, soothing and anti-irritating properties. It is moisturizing and keratolytic, meaning that it causes keratin in the skin to soften.

  2. LEVOMENOL is obtained from the Chamomile plant that contains high concentration of Panthenol that effectively stimulates the healing of the skin and is a superb ingredient use to soothe irritated skin.

  3. ProVitamin B5 acts a shield to protect the skin from allergens, skin irritants that can cause acne, rosacea & contact dermatitis, great moisturizer too.

  4. GOLDEN JOJOBA decrease your skin production of oil, fights the regulation of too much sebum of the skin & controls the formulation of acne.

Application:  Dab several dots of concealer to the desired area then use the pad of your middle finger to tap it in. Then dust your face with any of our loose mineral foundation to cover blemishes & fine lines.

Ideal buyer: Ideal for all skin type esp. for those who have oily skin.

Price: P285 per 2.5 net weight

My Experience: I used a concealer before, but unfortunately I discontinue using it because I found it [applying concealer] time consuming. I have a good skin back then so for me ,a pressed powder is enough.

I applied the concealer as directed. The first thing I noticed was the 'grainy' thing on it. I dunno what those grains are but I'm not comfortable with it. I dabbed a concealer times on my brown spots and under my eyes.

Here's how the concealer looks like:

Okay. I know my eyebags sucks and I love how Krave Minerale Correct & Conceal covers them. Also, it makes my brown spots less visible and gave my skin a natural glow.
