Natural But Still Pretty: Klairs Creamy & Natural Fit Concealer + Illuminating Supple BB Cream Review
Looking for a makeup that will look effortless and natural but effective? Then you’re in the right blog post, this is Klairs bb cream review and it’s concealer partner. Your long search for natural makeup is over.
What is it?
Klairs is a Korean beauty brand that has a slogan “Natural But Still Pretty” which I really love. Klairs Illumination Supple Blemish Cream is suitable for every skin tone, skin type, even sensitive and acne-prone. It aims to capture your natural skin tone color, to pull out the best of what you got underneath.
While the Klairs Creamy & Natural Fit Concealer contains natural ingredients and a safe, soothing formula for excellent coverage. It is made for even the most sensitive skin for the all-around hydrating coverage. Basically, their product’s goal is to enhance your natural beauty.
APPLICATION: Klairs Illuminating Supple BB cream has SPF50+++ and a creamy consistency but not oily at all. It’s easy to apply using your fingers, foam, makeup brush, silicone puff and a beauty blender. But I prefer a foam, specifically a puff like Beauty Blender. While the Klairs Creamy and Natural Fit Concealer has a thicker consistency than the BB cream. It has it’s own wand with a foam tip, like in lip gloss, to help you apply the product. But on spreading it all over my face, I prefer to use my fingers, it’s kinda hard to control using a brush and foam.
PACKAGING: Klairs’ packaging is really simple, which is not really common to Korean beauty brands that are popular with unconventional and super cute packaging. I also like that the instructions on the back of the BB cream are written in English which is not common on Korean brands, but the concealer has the same Korean letter. But I do love the message written on the BB cream, “You look so wonderful just the way you are. Be Natural” which is not often promoted by beauty brands.
SMELL: Both the Klairs BB cream and concealer has a mild scent which what I really look for a product. I don’t like a “WTF bold scents” on my beauty products, even on perfumes. So using them is a joy. The Illuminating Supper BB cream smells sweet and powdery, while the Creamy & Natural Fit Concealer smells like a minty jelly candy.
RESULTS: Both Klairs Illuminating Supple BB cream and Klairs Creamy and Natural Fit Concealer has ONE SHADE only. Which worries me at first, because I have olive skin and Korean women are known to have porcelain white skin. I fear that the shade might not match my skin tone. But it works! The Klairs Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream revolutionized the grayscale shade of many Korean BB creams. But it also means it doesn’t thickly cover the skin. So if you have blemishes, depending on skin type and personal preference, it can be mixed with matte foundation (I mix mine with Etude House Big Cover sometimes). Or you can use the Klairs Creamy & Natural Fit Concealer which hydrates and soothes while providing excellent coverage to conceal pores, blemishes, redness, and any target areas – ideal for even the most sensitive skin.
I have sensitive skin and currently suffering from breakouts due to the last product I used before Klairs. Despite the warning on the back of the BB cream to avoid using it on acne, my breakout didn’t get worse. But admittedly, using the Klairs Illumination Supple BB cream alone is not enough to cover my blemishes, I can’t use it alone at this current stage of my skin so I have to use the Klairs Creamy & Natural Fit Concealer which gave me a smooth and flawless result. (FYI: For the lips, I used Colourpop Ultra Matte on Clueless shade.)
CONS: The Klairs BB cream doesn’t do much cover unlike in other normal BB creams from other Korean brands. And it doesn’t last all day but the product didn’t promise it so I guess I could let that slide. While the Klairs Concealer has a thick consistency which kinda hard to spread on your face, you will need a little force.
PROS: It’s LIGHTWEIGHT and DOESN’T DARKEN after several hours. As you could sense on my capslock abuse, it’s a great thing. Both are also hydrating without making you oily, but since I live in a very humid country, I still puff some Banila Co. Primer on top. Lastly, it’s a good product for those with sensitive skin.
VERDICT: The brand is true to their slogan. As a beauty blogger, I encounter so many products that have so many gimmicks, some works while some are just purely gimmicks. But Klairs does really give you a natural look, and the concealer covers without caking. Will I buy both again, absolutely YES. Plus the prices ain’t that bad either.
