This deal was great for $5 . The concealer creased on my under eyes and make it smudges even after I used primer and little powder to set up. Is very creamy and great if you want use instead as a bb cream home made with a SPF lotion for face . I use it three months ago in the end as a bb cream and didn't flake or cake . This is product done wrong. It is like to go makeup touch up but concealer no way . I have dry skin and this for myself is to creamy and just not pretty.
The packaging is great! I love that I don't have to squeeze or dig it out of the package. The color was very good as well. I got both the 00 (pink undertone to cancel under eye blues) and 01 (the lightest flesh color since I am NC 15). Those are the only two positive things about this product. It went on fine and blended out pretty easily with my beauty blender. I right away set it with some bare minerals well rested hoping this would keep the creasing down - no such luck! Within five minutes, my eyes were a creased mess. The product never really seemed to fully adhere to my skin. Every time I tried to pat it back in from creasing, it just smudged off, and after only a couple of hours, it was all gone! No staying power at all. I only used this on my under eye - not my actual face - so I cannot speak for its use in that way. Will not be re-purchasing.
Now called the Concealer All-In-One, but I think it may be getting discontinued as I found they were selling them off for $5 CAD, only in the shade 01 but I didn't see any other shades on the displays.
I bought this previously in shade 01 which is a light yellow leaning shade (I'm NC 20-25 and it blends out and matches me pretty well) during a buy 2-get-1 sale but the price is originally $12 CAD. I was looking for a less drying concealer for under my eyes and this was advertised as being moisturizing as it has a vitamin E core surrounded by concealer. It doesn't completely cover up my dark circles (which are usually not too bad) even if I put two layers on, I can still see some grey discolouration. Covers up moderate redness nicely but tends to fade away on blemishes and does not completely cover them as well. In the summer I found that it would crease and settle into fine lines under my eyes and eventually fade away if not set with a powder, but now that it's winter and dry this less of a problem, except that after a while I would see dry flakes under one of my eyes that have a problem with dryness. Regardless if set with powder or not it still eventually looks faded away by the end of the day though. It doesn't really feel particularly moisturizing to me, just really light. It feels just a bit thicker on application now that it's winter (which means cold and dry weather for me).
- convenient stick style that comes in a slim turn up container, easy to travel with
- light and blends into skin easily
- after a while it started to not retract back into the tube when turned. The concealer stick did not break off, but I'm guessing the bottom of it must have loosened from the retracting mechanism. I have to press it down gently in order for it to turn back down. This kind of skinny stick packaging seems prone to this particular problem.
- staying power is not too great.
All around decent product, but for the normal price I feel that I can get something that works and lasts better for a bit more money. It's great to have around if you can get it on sale (which is pretty often at TBS) but don't expect too much from it. I like to use it when I'm lazy/short on time and need a little something to cover my dark circles and for easy on-the-go touch-ups.
I could not help but pick up another when I saw it on sale for $5 but I am still on the hunt for a better undereye concealer. I probably would not repurchase anymore though, I hope to find something better by the time I my first tube is finished and keep the second around just as an emergency concealer while out.
This stuff is caky, drying and thick. It does not blend well. The coverage is also not great, it doesn't cover redness well and it creases so it's not good for undereye circles which is my main use for concealer anyway. I don't recommend it.
Unfortunately this concealer doesn't really do much for me. It cakes, I can only blend it in with great difficulty, and it has a very light coverage. Not too mention it does settle in my fine lines.
The good part about it is that it's very affordable, doesn't have an unpleasant texture and the packaging is very practical.
I found Maybelline Super Stay Concealer had a better coverage and lasting power at a lower price compared to The Body Shop Flawless Skin Protecting Concealer.
I will not be buying this product again.
I think this is now called Concealer All in One, but when I got it it was Flawless, etc. Basically the twist up stick with some vitamin e in the middle. I like the idea of a stick concealer and like the lipstick tube type packaging and the price is actually not bad for the amount you get. It works okay. I used it mostly on zits and discolourations, not as an under eye stick. It seemed a bit dry, with a powdery finish and can settle in pores/lines. I now prefer Origins cream concealer or just a small dab of powder over foundation to conceal marks.
My biggest problem is that the colour 01 is too peach/orange for my fair skin. That was the lightest option at the time a couple years ago, but I see they've added a 00 colour that, on the website at least, seems very pink. Maybe that would have worked better for me. I might check out the new shade, but doubt it will be enough to get me to purchase.
I really like this concealer because its quite creamy and smooth and tends to apply quite well. It blends in better than I had imagined when i first bought it. It covers up redness in my cheeks ok, but I still find it hard to cover pimples with any concealer at all (probably due to my technique, not the product). Its quite expensive, but easy to use. I have yet to find a concealer that tops this one for me.
i feel the product doesnt work too well on me. its sort of to light and doesnt look good. However i did like the packaging very much and the price was very very good. Perhaps if i had gone back and gotten a better colour it might have work but i do think the need a wider range of colours because the was no colour that was perfect for me to be honest.
this is my second concealer. my first was ZA. im not sure if im using this the wrong way but i feel that it doesnt do anything other than stuck onto my finger that i use to apply. it didnt get on my undereye smoothly despite dabbing it softly...and it CAKES and gives me lines......... i dont really like body shop's cosmetic.
This one is good enough and I have 2 (00 with pink tones and 03 same as my skin tone). I use 03 to hide the blemishes but be careful with the under eyes as it creases I use the 00 for my under eyes. Less is more. Don't forget to set it with loose powder / or most importantly blend blend blend!
