Despite the hefty price tag, this has been my favorite anti blemish concealer over the past few years and for good reason. The formula has some pretty great ingredients to help minimize your blemishes and conceal them without leaving an unsighlty flaky or dry ring around them like most anti acne creams or just regular concealers tend to leave behind. It has shea butter, retinol and salicylic acid with a nice creamy consistency that is thicker than most anti acne concealers that I have used in the past but yet blends out nicely and easily with the right concealer brush. I prefer using my Elf studio pro concealer one and find that it pairs really nicely with this specific formulation.Now before finding this concealer I would use the neutrogena and almay anti acne concealers and even though they did have some minor ingredients to aid in getting rid of acne, i found the formulation to be way too thin and runny to actually give good coverage and would wear off much too quickly as well. I find that this concealer has much better staying power and because it helps combat acne just makes me feel better about dabbing it on a blemish rather than having that inner cringing guilty feeling of putting a random concealer on it that you know is just going to exasperate the problem. Only thing that may suck for many aside from the price tag is that the shade range is pretty limited. Luckily the shade “medium” fits my light/medium with neutral undertones skin nicely but I could see it being an issue for many to find their color with how limited the choices are. Also, even though the product states that it can be used in the under eye area i really wouldnt recommend it for that because I feel like it would be crease city up in there for real.. The formula is much too thick for that if you ask me... For that same reason I also wouldn't recommend it to be used to cover any wrinkle lines. But for the sole purpose of covering blemishes and post acne marks it works great for me.Now as for the sensitivity to sun while using this product issue, I don’t see how anyone would be surprised..ahas are known to increase the sensitivity and if you are looking for a cosmetic to specifically aid in combatting your acne you more than likely won’t find one without that label on it but it’s nothing a little spf can’t fix so if taken care of properly if won’t be an issue. For that reason, I personally use my physicians formula spf 30 mineral loose powder and also use my ulta rose water spf 50 makeup setting spray and take it along with me to lightly spray while I am out and about for protection. If you are a spf moisturizer kinda gal you can just go that route as well. Last but not least the packaging is in a cute and slim little compact like container that I find convenient and not clunky so it won’t take up much space in your makeup bag/organizer or purse. I have had mine for nearly 3 years now and it is bearly on the verge of running out completely so I will definitely be repurchasing.Bottom line, if you are prone to getting minor acne flares just here and there and are looking for a good anti acne concealer for the sole purpose of concealing blemishes then I would highly recommend this product as it gives great guilt free coverage and will last you quite a long time making it worth every penny

Can't believe I forgot this didn't work for me and accidentally bough it again. The shade worked for my complexion (Golden Dark) but the Titanium Dioxide is horrible for darker complexions as it creates that dreaded weird cast which appears white in sunscreen but when in makeup, delivers a horrid greenish undertone that is not cute. I bought this online from the Pur website and already returned the items I didn't want which is a hassle in itself, so I'll have to give this away. Definite hard no for me..

Sure, it works as advertised in that the powder turns into a sort of moussey cream. Why you'd need a product to do this is beyond me - why not just use a cream concealer in the first place? - but then again, I fell for the novelty factor with this, which just goes to show you what marketing can do. Anyway, this provides no coverage on me (and I'm fair). Like, none. I might as well use nothing. But while it doesn't conceal, it manages to make my undereyes look slightly cakey. I've tried various application methods (the sponge, my fingers, a brush) and it doesn't matter, I get the same result every time. This was expensive and I'm mad at myself for wasting money on a useless product.

Not at all impressed with this moisturizer. First the good - it's unscented. And the rest - it's in a jar which is not hygienic, it didn't seem to be very moisturizing, and it's quite expensive for a product that mainly contains water, the usual silicones, glycerin, etc.

I bought the shade satin (rose gold). It's shimmery, long lasting, crease proof and best applied with your fingertips BUT the liquid eyeshadow dried out within a month after opening it...for that reason I won't repurchase it and I wouldn't recommend it!
