Fanny Serrano concealer

Hello, beauties.

I've been hearing a lot good things about Fanny Serrano cosmetics lately. For years, the iconic Fanny Serrano has been the makeup artists of  the stars. And now, he has his very own makeup line by Fashion 21, a well-known local cosmetic brand.

I decided to try the Fanny Serrano stick concealer after reading The Doctor is Vain's blog and a throng of makeup reviews from fellow Filipina beauty bloggers. The FS concealers won the Cosmo Beauty Awards in 2008.

Fanny Serrano concealer sticks are available in three shades: sand, walnut, and chestnut. I am morena so I got mine in chestnut.

I got a nice tip from another beauty junkie's blog: She uses sand (the lighest shade), for highlighting and concealing ugly under eye circles. Walnut (the medium shade among the three), for hiding blemishes and, guess what, for foundation! And chestnut for contouring.

Pocket-friendly for only Php 350.00 (Watson's and leading department stores).

I love the rubberized cylinder! The Fanny Serrano concealer sticks are in matte black with a silver FS logo. It's elegant compared to other local brand's colorful makeup packaging.

 Hmm... it was a so-so. Though it was lightweight, the coverage was not so good that I have to apply another layer. It has the tendency to get a little cakey.

And another thing, the shades are yellowy, too. I have to use it sparingly or I might end up looking jaundiced. Yikes! To avoid such beauty faux pas, always remember the rule of thumb in applying concealers: less is always more.

Overall impressions:
Fanny Serrano stick concealers are way cheaper than international brands like the MAC Studio Finish Concealer SPF 35 NW20 ($ 20.00). Of course, their coverage are incomparable, too. But FS concealers are already a steal because of their inexpensive price tag and good quality (when compared to other local makeup lines).

I give it ♥♥♥♥ out of 5!
