I tried in on over the Sonia Kashuk luminous foundation and it really was a bit dark against the lightest shade and did not blend well. It is very thick and hard to put on. So it looked blotchy. Then I read that the company recommends that you use it underneath the foundation. Under foundation, it is still a bit hard to blend, but worked well on the red blotches on my nose and cheeks. I wasn't so worried about blending it into the foundation. It looked great under the foundation, and helped dampen my red splotches and dark under eye circles. I can still use a lighter more spreadable concealer on top if needed. I don't love this concealer, but I did find a very good use for it. I see someone else talking about base concealers. Still, it is not a buy again for me.
I'm surprised by the negative reviews on this concealer. I LOVE Sonia Kashuk cosmetics and her brushes are next to none in my opinion. I have always used Hidden Agenda concealer, however, as my skin has aged Hidden Agenda was becoming a bit too heavy for me, so I bought the All Covered Up concealer hoping this would be a bit lighter and creamier formula. And it is! I have fair skin, but not a porcelain complexion so I bought this in Ivory (2nd to the lightest shade) and it works beautifully! It's creamy and not too heavy, and it melts right into my skin. This is not a heavy concealer, so I could understand someone who might require a heavier coverage that this product may not be the right for them. This concealer does not settle into fine lines. My mascara does not smear like crazy, like with some other heavier concealers. I love the little glass pot with the black lid. It looks very classy. I have no trouble dipping my ring finger into the little pot and obtaining more than enough product to do the trick for both eyes, plus any extra coverage on my face where I might need it. I believe it will last me quite some time.
I bought this on a whim. I really should stop buying SK products and expecting them to be decent. Everything of this brand I've owned sucks. The SK concealer pallet caked, the flat top brush I had broke, the mascara comb lost its metal teeth (yes went to clean it & they popped right out), and now this just sucks. The jar has such a small opening to it that it's pretty hard to get a finger or brush in there. When applying this is very creamy. It started out great but then it just melts into your skin. Without covering anything. Then when you go to set it with a powder it collects all the powder. So not only do you look old but you look cakey and every fine line is highlighted. Yeah that's everything I don't want in a concealer. I have since moved on and tucked this in a drawer. I wish I could return it but Target has a lame return policy with make-up (they'll take it back if it's unopened & in the original packaging).
I've been using this nearly every single day since I got it. I'm a MAC NC20 and picked up the shade 02 Ivory to cover my undereye circles with. 02 is a shade or two darker than my skin tone and has a peachy/ salmon undertone to it. It works beautifully to counteract the bluey-purple under my eyes and has just enough coverage - not FULL coverage - that it still looks natural. This is an incredibly creamy concealer that is very easy to blend: I swipe it on with a concealer brush then tap it in gently with my ring finger. It seems to melt into the skin without accentuating fine lines and lasts well throughout the day. It is marketed as a dark circle concealer and not as something to use on the rest of the face. In fact, there's a warning on the bottom label that says DO NOT USE IN LIP AREA, which sounds just a little bit worrisome... But it really does work wonders for what it's meant to do The little glass jar is great quality and for $10 I would definitely purchase this again. I adore SK products and think that they are one of the most underrated brands out there today.
This is pretty much worthless as a concealer. It is completely sheer. It claims to have medium coverage, but I tried it on my undereyes to cover the purple, on blemishes to cover the redness, and on redder areas around my nose. EVERYTHING still showed through. The concealer did not help one little bit. Also it sunk in to the lines around my eyes where it caked up and made me look 20 years older with all the lines and wrinkles it seemed to emphasize. Since I can't return it, maybe I will try it out as an eyeshadow base. If you need any level of coverage, look elsewhere.
I have only started using this today, so I will just give my first impression. Firstly, I have the fair/porcelean shade and it seems more like a light to medium/light than fair. Definitely darker than I expected it to be. It isn't too dark for me though. I was still able to use it as a base concealer and I used my maybelline dark circle eraser on top in the fair shade that is really brightening and run on sentence.... I always use a tackier thicker more full coverage concealer on bottom and use a more moisturizing brightening concealer on top of that. This is good as the base. It's pretty yellow so it covers my dark circles well. It starts out as more than medium coverage and it only takes a little more to make it full. I put t on at 6:40am and it is now 5:56pm and it still has nice coverage. It doesn't look dry or gross and after being set with powder it hasn't creased either. So all good stuff.
Bad stuff, it's a little on the tacky side so blending it a little tricky. The jar is so tiny so you really don't get a lot for $10. It is .07 oz and my maybelline concealer is .2oz, revlon is .18oz, covergirl is .37oz. So on average you get less than half the product. I love the jar though. It's really nice and expensive looking and I'm not a germophobe so I dont mind sticking my finger in. So far I would repurchase. I'll revise if anything changes
