For those who have commented that this product lasts a long time, I can attest to that. I've been using mine for two or more years now and it's had a fine shelf life and works.
I don't love this concealer, as I perfer potted concealer products, but, this does the job for LIGHT concealing and touch up jobs.
I admit that if I had more concealing to do - to cover blemishes and blotches, this product wouldn't be ideal, as it doesn't provdie heavy coverage and doesn't have the longevity that a heavier, cream based concealer, would.
I wouldn't purchase this again, but, I'm still using it. It works for the light jobs and I think that this product, ideally, would work for those who only need a minimal coverage concealer.
this product is a great concealer. it is a hook up so its like in a travel size. it comes in a pencil that is sharpenable, however I had horrible luck sharpening this, and it was just terrible for me to use, which is sad cuz the formula is incredible!!
I too have tried many concealers and foundations used as concealer and this was the best. I tried wet n wild powder which very easily smudged and needed to be redone in a matter of hours, and color matte mouse which also smudged and didn't come in any shade that matched my skin tone. I love these concealer sticks because they come in just the right shade for my skin tone and cover my under-eye circles flawlessly!
Omg I love this product. Ive tried a lot of concealers: both benefits boing and erase paste, both of them creased. Mineral powder concealers just look too dry under the eye. This one does the job of taking care of darkness under the eye, the coverage is wonderful, no creasing, and it looks totally natural=) I would re-buy this for sure!
Bought this in the darkest shade it's alright creamy enough and smooths on ok but it didn't cover my dark under circles as well. I bought the hook up highlighter to go with this. If I used it everyday it would probably not last me long but it works well for minor scarring or blemishes. I don't mind it will repurchase.
This is a fine, serviceable, basic concealer. The thing about mark products is that they really really tap my 'OMG!!! THAT'S SO COOL!!!' needs. Concept and gimmicks are what grab me - sometimes - and at this price point, I let my product whoring have free reign. The best thing about this concealer is that it's a hook up - I've matched mine with one of mark's highlighters. Thus it's convenient to toss in my bag and touch up with in the afternoons. The consistency is fine - soft, blendable, or sharpenable to a precise point.
Overall, I do like this concealer. I think it does a good job of covering up redness and pimples. I personally don't use this under my eyes, because I feel it's a little bit too 'thick' for that area, but it works great everywhere else. Also, even though it looks small, it lasts quite a while-much longer than I would have expected. And since it can be sharpened it's also very sanitary, which I like. For the price, this is a great concealer and I would definitely buy again!
I wouldn't use this on undereye circles. But for discoloration, reddness around the nose, and pimples, this is great for touching up throughout the day! Opt for something that is creamier, has better coverage, is more blendable, and has ligh reflection properties for dark shadows instead. Take it from the raccoon herself, who has tried every concealer on the planet :)
not bad, would like something a bit better though :(
I have a sensitive skin and I broke out as it clogged my pores. I will never repurchase. I bought this based on the reviews here on MUA. Too bad for me that I didn't return the product right away, so it's just sitting in my make-up stash.
I purchased in both light and medium, and neither of them matched my skin color. I'm oriental and yellow-based products suit me. The closest color is the medium, but if applied under the eyes to conceal dark circles, it's a bit darker than my skin tone, and vice versa with the other color as it's too light for me.
I rate this as a 2. (1 = the coverage is okay from light to medium, and 1 = creamy consistency even though it is in a pencil form). You may add more of the product for more coverage. It is cheaper than any other brands.
I'd prefer a concealer in a tube form as it's more hygienic and easier to dispense with a clean hand than in a pencil form.
If you have found your holy grail under the concealer department, please let me know too. I have been trying out different products and it makes me sad that I'm unsuccessful with my search. T_T
