I like this concealer but i only use the one shade so i think it is a bit of a waste for the other ones that i don't use. i just use this for under the eyes and it seems to work well.
Usually I have 3 problems with concealers: 1. I can't find a shade light enough for me, 2. Look too cakey and not natural, 3. They break me out. The Allround concealer has none of these problems and works just great for me. I have the one which starts with green and then pink from left (because I noticed there are at least 2 types). I am so pleasantly surprised by Catrice products. Their shades actually suit my skintone (very light with pink undertones). I don't have very problematic under eye circles so the pink shade makes everything disappear. I can imagine that it doesn't work for people with darker skin and less pink undertones. My real problem is that I tend to have a blemish or two or irritation and I dislike too much make up. The green shade works perfectly. If some area is just slightly red, I just use the green one and apply powder foundation. If it's a blemish, I apply green and the 2nd lightest shades onto it, finishing it with Max Factor Facefinity compact. Works like a charm. When I have the time, I experiment with the other shades on different parts of my face. The consistency is nice and creamy and offers enough coverage. Though I must say that it makes me a little bit more greasy, so I avoid the T-zone and especially my nose. When I'm done with all this, I look quite natural (with powder foundation) but with the problematic spots covered. I really recommend this product.
I am looking for my HG undereye concealer right now ..My biggest needs in a concealer are :
-One that is suitable for the very delicate skin under my eyes so stick concealers are not an option here..
- I can't define the exact colour "tone " of my circles , so I think colour theory won't work well ...
-I hardly wear foundations ! So I came to notice most concealers don't just work miracles by their own..:\
Add to this that , I live in a country where most famous international brands (including Drugstore ones ) are almost impossible to find ...So I was so excited when I saw this "Catrice" stand in my town ,I heard it was a wonderful drugstore brand from a Youtube guru ..
I have tried it today for the first time..I think I am NW 15 or 20 , combo skin
I tried the lightest shade with a slightly wet concealer brush , then dabbing it with fingers ..I was immediately stunned with how blendable and creamy it is , but the shade was soo light for my circles .so I dabbed some of the pink -salmon shade over it and gave very good results , it didn't cake or settle in the fine line ,or crease in my undereye dry area at all ..meduim coverage but certainly buildable ..I have only one tip for this don't set it with powder , it may cake up ..I will try it next time with either another kind of translucent powder or without one ..Wait for my updates
I mainly need concealer to cover dark under eye rings, not blemishes or redness. Since moving to Germany I have noticed a severe lack of drugstore end colors suited to my darker skintone. When my US- bought Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch concealer finally ran out, I found they didn't sell my shade in Germany, so I went hunting and found this affordable palette instead. I figured even if a shade didn't match, I could self mix something together that would pass, or perhaps even use the darkest flesh tone shade as a contouring cream.
The good parts of this palette are obviously, the price - at under 4€ for an entire palette you get a real steal. The texture of the product is soft and creamy and smooths onto the skin easily. I had no adverse skin reactions to using the concealer. Aaaand.... that's about where the pros end.
The biggest con this palette has is that the concealer shades are basically useless for my warm, darker tan skintone. The very darkest peach shade is almost a perfect match for my face, making it useless for contouring. If I had blemishes to cover or redness, the green might be useful, but those sorts of problems are so mild that my foundation does enough to take care of things alone. The real problem is the dark brownish circles under my eyes. The pink concealer is near useless for this purpose; it highlights "a little bit" but compared to the Dream Lumi I might as well be wearing nothing; if I wear it under my foundation the highlighting effect disappears completely. If I wear it over my foundation it's much too pink and visible, and with a radically different texture and finish to the rest of my face. I have a very light hand when applying my foundation (Diorskin Nude), so I don't think it's an over-layering problem.
Mixing lighter peach shades to try and achieve a more blemish-hiding-like coverage of my circles was completely useless; even using the lightest shade alone, those brown bags shone through as if I had done nothing to them. Layering pink and peach tones together in an attempt to get fuller coverage only resulted in an obvious caked on makeup look - and I could STILL see my circles clearly!
All color theory aside, this also settled very obviously into the fine lines around my eyes, even with the use of primer beforehand. It actually made those lines look worse than they really are. Disappointing.
I can see how this palette could be useful for someone younger, with a lighter skin tone than myself, but for my medium-tanned Filipino skin it was a bust simply because the coverage was too sheer and in the wrong tones to hide my undereye circles. If you can get it to work for your skin it's still a great value, but darker toned ladies are going to have to go high end for passable concealers (and foundation) in Germany.
I'm absolutely loving this. I've never used a pink concealer so effective, all my friends took ages to realise what was so different about me!! My only bugbear is the darkest concealer. I'd actually prefer if the palette came in two types- one with another lighter shade of concealer, and this one with the darker, because i'm so pale i have absolutely no use for it!
And for anyone having issues with the green, i applied it after a first thin layer of foundation, dabbed it on with my concealer brush, blended with a bit of the skin tone concealer, then a proper layer of foundation, and worked a charm!
I really used it a lot but i don't really like concealers
I was really excited for this product especially cuz it had different colors with the green and the pink. this product doesnt work for me at all. it creases, and the formulation is sor of cakey and doesnt cover up my under eye circles well. will not repurchase this again. ive tried a lot of drugstore concealers but i would really reccomend checking out higher end concealer if you have really dark under eye circles and really want to do something about it.
This concealer has 5 colours : green, pink and 3 skin tones. I don't really like this product but since the price is this low I can't really expect a very good concealer. the concealer creases, doesn't cover well and doesn't stay on long.
I love this concealer! it has all the colours you could need in one palette!
It's so cheap I think I paid around €3 - €4 which for 5 different colours including colour correcting colours, is great, I've already used up 2 of them :) The packaging is ok, the lid of mine has broken before but that was after everyday use for a few weeks.
Overall I love it! it's perfect to throw in your bag and not have to worry about it if it gets damaged because it's so cheap.
I only use two colors from this palette, the lightest and the pink one for under the eyes. Once used the green one on my red spots and it ended up looking horrible so that's why.
The eye concealer has a very good coverage but does not last long and creases a lot also. After 2 hours it sits right into whatever line you have under your eyes so I certainly don't advise it if you have lines.
In general if you can afford something better this product will be a waste for you. But if you're on a student budget and don't have lines and wrinkles, then it's certainly something for you.
