This is the BEST concealer I have ever purchased. Make POSITIVELY sure you buy the right shade & purchase a concealer brush to apply it. Do not use your fingers. This concealer hides 60-70% of the dark circles under my eyes. If I ever get a pimple, I cover my entire face in foundation and then go over the pimple with this concealer & then cover my face in loose powder to set it. It's as if I never had a pimple. A little goes a long way with this product so I don't think I will need to be replacing anytime soon. However, when it runs out, I will be purchasing it again.
This sits in the bottom of my makeup drawer. I've tried to use it every way possible but I can't make it work. It's thick, but the coverage is mediocre. It doesn't blend well and sits in the creases under my eyes, making me look old. It doesn't cover acne, it doesn't even blend to cover mild discoloration or redness around my nose. I dislike the fact that it's in a jar. I scoop a little bit out with a q-tip to try to keep the product clean. Overall it was a waste of money in my opinion. On the other hand, I really love the even better foundation, I had hoped they would work better together.
I think this is a good, medium coverage concealer IF you can find the right color and IF you are NOT acne-prone. I dont care much for its texture, nor for its coverage wich is medium. It also tends to fade away leaving your discolorations on display. Willl not buy again, I want to find a full coverage, long lasting, non-comedogenic, talc free concealer ;)
I bought this concealer in Porcelain for my NC15 skin.
Can't argue with the price, it isn't expensive for the quality.
I like the texture/consistency, as it is just thick enough to downplay minor blemishes, and I can use it comfortably under my eyes without it creasing crazily or feeling heavy.
The coverage is medium, IMO. It does the job for my undereye circles and non-serious discolouration on my face, but it isn't sufficient to cover any of my blemishes. It tones down the redness but I find the opacity isn't enough. To cover pimples I'd recommend MAC Studio Finish instead.
The wear time isn't anything to rave about, it's average.
Overall, this is a pretty standard concealer, one of those which if you could only choose one, the formula on this one should do.
So I bought this concealer in order to attempt to cover the numerous red spots and scarring on my face. Until this purchase, this was a difficult task, and I had not come across something able to do so, and last all day.
Well, my answer came in the form of a small, cute container.
I, for one, love this concealer. It gives great coverage, and doesn't irritate my extremely sensitive skin.
I don't suffer from under eye circles, and many reviews have said how it doesn't help those, but if you're looking for a spot-smothering solution, this is it. :)
For best results, apply under your foundation: dab (don't rub) onto the required area, ideally leave for a minute or two, then layer with foundation etc..
I LOVE this concealer! I have light medium skin with yellow tones and I use Buttermilk color. I love how it isn't overly pink-toned. Yes this concealer is thick but if you apply it right it works wonders. Dab it on your skin, don't rub or smear it! It isn't like a soft cream concealer you can just brush on. I love the full coverage and it matches my skin so well. I love it! The packaging is really nice too and the tiny jar lasts forever because you only need a tiny tiny bit each time.
I really enjoy this concealer. It gives me full coverage and it blends extremely well with clinique foundation. Its not the lightest but it isn't really heavy or thick either. It does not give me any oily skin effects.
When I have acrylic nails on this concealer is a nightmare to use. Tiny jar plus witch claws......no.
Lovely for dark spots, can't imagine using this for undereye circles since its a little heavy. Lasts for a long time and good color selection overall.
It lightened my spots, which is amazing! I'm debating on whether to get this in a summer shade, but my lorac concealer is holding out well and doing the same great job, so I will have to wait.
I use buttermilk for my nc25 skin. Spot on! However, it looks very obvious under my eyes. I just did it to test it out, but I have no dark circles so I couldn't tell you if it works for that. I have a feeling it would crease though.
It doesn't irritate my eyes.
It creases under the eyes.
Makes my fine lines more visible.
It doesn't cover dark undereye circles well.
It's quite drying.
Doesn't conceal blemishes very well.
It didn't even work with a primer in my case.
It seems so run off during the day, leaving my complexion looking dull.
Feels heavy on the eyes.
I won't repurchase.
* Just ordered the "Magic Concealer" by Helena Rubenstein. I've got a sample at home and it's definitely more moisturizing than the previous one. Also the coverage is better and it gives a longlasting glow to the eyes/face.
I absolutely love this product! It covers any blemishes really well and lasts most of the day (depending on whether or not I exercise). The colour I purchased is also a great match for my skin tone.
I hadn't attempted to apply this concealer underneath my eyes to cover dark circles until reading all the negative reviews but upon trying it for myself I find that it works great under the eyes! I would just say that you need a brush to apply it as this will work best to work the product into your skin.
Many people complain that you only get a tiny pot for the money which this concealer costs but I have been using it everyday for 4 months now to cover any blemishes and there is still plenty of product left.
All in all I am very pleased with this product and will definitely be repurchasing it.
