My first ELF product ever and i can say - i don't like it, it's useless. I think that having a perfect colour of concealer is really important - so that's why i wanted some pallete and be able to mix some colours together and get perfect match for me.
Well i couldn't mix anything at all, because the texture is so DRY, you can try to use the horrible and useless brush that you get with these concealers (in the packaging), you can rub it with your fingers, but it is really impossible to get any product out of the "box". It is really not blendeable and really thick and the coverage is really light. I don't recommend this and i won't repurchase it definitely.
(BTW I have the LIGHT colours and i saw some YT videos saying that the LIGHT pallete is really thick and not-easy to use but the MEDIUM and DARK are creamy and blendeable. But i don't know, i am really fair.)
There are two lighter and two darker colours - 1st and 3rd are with pink undertone, 2nd and 4th are with yellow undertone.
+ Nice packaging including mirror and (useless) brush
- Everything else
Sorry for my english
This is strong enough to hide little marks like the nose cracks or black heads but THAT IS ALL. Overall horrible concealer, however it was like 3$ so I couldnt expect much!
It wont hide blemishes or dark circles!
First off, the packaging is great. Nice sleek compact case which is convenient to carry around. ELF has thoughtfully provided a mirror and overall I think they did a good job with the feel of it (other than the brush - which didn't work out for me at all).
As for the colors, maybe I picked the wrong set but the color was a little ashy on my skin tone (I'm a Bobbi Brown Warm Natural 4.5 with warm undertones). ELF isn't exactly consistent in quality so in my case, whilst I wouldn't call it sheer, I wouldn't say its as pigmented as the Coastal Scents palette. It does tend to need a little rubbing sometimes before the color comes out - almost like a wax layer builds up on the surface (or maybe its just the humidity in my country).
If you don't mind gambling on $3, then I'd give this a try - especially if you've got cooler undertones to your skin. Do note that its better suited as a regular concealer - I'm not sure the texture would work as an under eye concealer.

Pros: nice packaging, cheap price
CONS: WASTE OF MONEY. TOO SHEER. NOT AN OUNCE OF COVERAGE WHATSOEVER. LOOKS LK YOU DIDN'T EVEN APPLY ANYTHING.
BROKE ME OUT!!!! This product is awful (for my skin) because it broke me out really really really bad on the areas where I applied it.
I used the darkest in the light palette to clean up the edges of my brows and I broke out there. I also used it to highlight my undereye circles down to my top cheek part (near the nose) and I broke out there like really really really bad!!!
The pigmentation is not good either and the texture is terrible!! It's not easily blendable and you don't get much product payoff. When I applied it it looked really streaky and horrible.
I love ELF products but this one is by far the worst I've ever tried. Most of the things I use are from them because they make really really good quality products for dirt cheap prices but man oh man this one sucked!!
At least the packaging looks quite nice.
I was soooo excited to try this product out, unfortunately i hate this. I love the fact that it comes in 4 shades and the packaging is great with the cute small mirror. But the trust be told, it sucks, very sheer and barely covers anything i have. I have the worst dark circle ever so i need something of a great quality to cover it up, this made it look even more obvious by somehow turning it into a deeper shade.
Plus the colour that in in the palette always turns white under the eyes, all the shade seem so sheer that it is almost white..
This product is another surprise from ELF. I really love the different shades you get and the undertones which, if you're like me who use both an NC and an NW concealer from MAC for their undereye and face, this is a great one to try. I don't know why the reviews here mention it not being pigmented enough since I find it decent when you use your fingers instead of that dinky little brush that comes with it.
I bought all three shades of this. The lighter ones I use as a cream highlight and thr darker ones I use as a cream contour and bronzer. And guess what--it's freakin' amazing! Buyong another set in a couple days.
Yikes! I was so excited for this product! Sadly, I really hate it! I fully regret buying this product. One upside is the packaging, usually elf sends very small packaging, but this palette was a very decent size, with a cute twist. The product itself sucks. It's sooo sheer. It won't cover up a thing on your face. I do not recommend nor will I repurchase.
I love a lot of ELF products and I heard very good things about this concealer palette from SMLX0 on YouTube. But, I have dark undereye circles that this concealer did not stand a chance against. No matter how much I rubbed this concealer with my finger to warm it up, It just did not get creamy enough to do my undereyes any justice. Covergirl and olay simply ageless undereye concealer was amazing, and so was Maybelline instant age rewind concealer (which was what i was using before) worked great at covering my undereye area. I felt like this ELF concealer wasn't creamy it was WAXY. No matter how much I rubbed it with my finger to warm it - and applied it - I wasn't getting much color, I was getting a lot of sheer wax and slight color. For $3.00 though, you really can't go wrong. It does come with 4 shades that will work for your skin during the fall, winter, spring and summer months. It does hide freckles and can be built up to hide blemishes that aren't too serious. I'm not 100% happy with the palette though because I was expecting something a bit more creamier and pigmented, since it said "COMPLETE coverage" but for three bucks its not too horrible.
I was so excited when I saw this on the E.L.F. website! I own a plethora of concealers and I just had to see how this one stacked up to all the rest. And, I can honestly say that this concealer was such a waste of money for me!
I purchase the concealer palette in the shade Medium. When I opened up the compact, the first thing that i noticed was the little droplets of oil on top. Next, while applying it, I quickly noticed just how little coverage it actually provides. And, it is greasy and creases as well.
And, the colors in the concealer palette actually look darker in their pans than they go on one's face.
There are much better concealers out there! Don't waste your money on this one!
