Using concealer is one of the most important steps of the makeup routine to achieve a flawless complexion. So, no need to say that pursuing the perfect concealer is part of my ‘beauty-concerned-life’. Finding the product that combines the perfect consistency and finish, as well as the perfect shade can be quite a challenge.
Today’s review is about the Shiseido Natural Finish Cream Concealer in Light 1, which I have been using almost every single day for about 3 months.

Shiseido Natural Finish Cream Concealer ~ Light 1
| Packaging |
Shiseido Natural Finish Cream Concealer comes in a small squeeze tube, which is handy and hygienic. The tube contains 10 ml of product.
| Shade |
Light 1 is the lightest shade out of the 5 shades available. It is the perfect shade for my NC 15 skintone. What makes this shade work out that great for me, is the fact it has a more yellow undertone to it, which perfectly evens out the redness that shows through my fair skin.
| Consistency and Coverage |
The creamy consistency is non-drying (even on my delicate under eye area that does show fine dry lines), blends easily and evenly into the skin. While it provides a superb coverage, it still remains looking absolutely natural. I use it both for my under eye area, as well as for hiding red spots and pimples. The crease-less formulation stays put a 10 hours day with ease.
| Availability and Price |
Shiseido Natural Finish Cream Concealer is available internationally at Shiseido counters and department stores. Retail price is 25,00 USD.
| Verdict |
Shiseido Natural Finish Cream Concealer ~ Light 1 fulfills pretty much all requirements that I’m looking for in a good concealer. The interaction of the shade, texture, coverage and finish leaves little to be desired. A further thing that pleases me a lot, is the fact that this little tube lasts really long! Only a tiny bit of product is sufficient for the entire face!
If you are looking for a very light shaded concealer without the pink undertone, in order to fight redness and red spots, striving after a non-drying, creamy concealer with good coverage that still looks all natural, this product is definitely worth to be checked out!
Consistency and coverage: 5/5
Staying Power: 5/5
