Bloom’s Secret Weapon: Concealer Kit (Fair/Medium)

Bloom Secret Weapon - Packaging

To be honest, I don’t really know what compelled me to pick up this Concealer Kit by Bloom, called Secret Weapon. I couldn’t be bothered to “conceal” until a few months ago when my sister introduced me to K-Palette’s concealer, and since it worked so well, I didn’t see the need to buy this. However, I think you can see the possible reason why I picked this up.

This nifty little kit has three concealer colors (Fair, Light Medium), 2 correctors (green & yellow), and an illuminator. These come in a credit-card sized “tray” with a plastic sliding cover and a (pretty useless) brush.

I was so excited to use this and photograph its pristine newness, but the plastic-y lining that protected the pans dipped into the two bigger pans and I was left with this creamy mess:

Oh well. The card/cover flips over to reveal a nifty little “instruction” card, corresponding to each of the shades and their specific uses.

I think the right shades have been interchanged, though, as the top right pan seems to be the darkest concealer shade.

Bloom Secret Weapon - Swatches

I really like how this kit has several shades of concealer that you can blend together to match your shade. I would caution you to use a light hand, though, as rough blending tends to swipe away the product, instead of creating a seamless blend. It’s fairly easy to use—I choose to use my fingers. I do not like the brush… it’s fairly useless as it does not really pick up the product and it doesn’t blend all that well.

I don’t blend the shades on a pan before application; I just use layers.

Here, I’ve used everything on the pan, even the illuminator. It’s fairly nice and doesn’t sparkle all that much. The right picture features both of the under-eyes corrected and “fixed.” All in all, it’s a good product to have on hand, though I noticed that it generally settles into fine lines after about four hours of wear.

VERDICT: Nifty little product, great for traveling and quick fix-ups. A bit tough to blend; best to use on a clean face.
Will I repurchase? Maybe, though not a priority/there is no strong love for it.
How much? Php 545 or $20 (AUD) for 5.5g or 0.19 oz.

  1. Not sure if this is related, but I couldn’t wait for you to post about it so here goes, which shade of the Kuma concealer are you using? And is it really nice? I want to pick one up but I don’t know which one to get! 😦

    • Hallo! I got 02 Yellow Beige 🙂 I think that they can be used for all skin tones; they target your problems (just a theory!). For example, the third shade is more orange and should be used for severe eyebags. My sister is a couple of shades lighter than me but we both use 02 Yellow Beige. 🙂
