I've been a fan of Korean concealers ever since I tried the TonyMoly Baby Doll concealer range [check out my reviews HERE and HERE], so when I came across a review for this Aritaum Full Cover Liquid Concealer, [and it's promise to give full coverage] I decided to give it a go.
Like the majority of Korean products, this concealer only comes in 2 shades: Light Beige and Natural Beige. Mine is in Light Beige [but I wish I had gotten the other one]
To start from the beginning: this concealer claims to be waterproof [and sweatproof]. It also has Rose Hip oil in it.
First of all I have to say that you get a lot of product [25ml] - this is undoubtedly the biggest concealer I own.
Although it states that it is liquid - this has more of a creamy formula. You also need the tiniest, tiniest amount of product [half the size of a pea]. Better to layer this than to attempt to conceal everything all at once. Due to its thick property, this could easily end up looking cakey.
I find that this is also best applied using my fingers - the warmth of my skin seems to give a more even application rather than when applied with a brush.
For this reason, I think that this works best when it is set with powder. I find that due to its creamy nature, this does tend to settle in fine lines.

The finish of this is rather dewy. It also needs some time to set properly.
I also think that one, thin application of this does not give 'proper' full coverage. However, this can be easily layered to achieve higher coverage.
Also, while I've never been swimming in this one so I can't really vouch for the waterproof claim, I can say that this is definitely sweat proof, especially when it is set with a good powder.

For those of you with dry skin, I think that it would be best if you properly moisturised before applying this product [even though it contains Rose Hip oil]
And for those of you who suffer from acne, pimples or scars [it does cancel out redness]. I honestly believe that you should try this Aritaum Full Cover Liquid Concealer out.
Hope this helped!
