This has been my go to for almost 10 yrs now, I have tried everything from high end to drugstore & everything in between & this continues to be the best concealer I have ever tried.. It covers my acne, redness, & hyper pigmentation. While it may not be my favorite for under my eyes I have no problem using something else (I prefer brightening products under my eyes anyway)
Long story short, if you are in the market for a new concealer give this one a shot! It is worth it!
- full coverage
- blends very easily
-- I've tried using my fingers and a makeup sponge, and it blends beautifully with both
- a little goes a long way
-- since it's super blendable, I can easily it spread it over a large area
- lasts for a long time
-- I would apply this on around 7 am and would find it still there even after 12 hours
- feels very lightweight
- limited shade range
- if you have oily/combination skin, you need to blot once or twice in order for the concealer to last for a while
Finally! A drugstore concealer that has my shade! The shade I have is 02 Light. It's yellow enough for my skintone and also has a slight brightening effect. Instead of wearing foundation, I put this concealer all over my T-zone and little on my cheeks.
I use this all over my face, not under my eyes only. I actually like the texture and feel of this better than the CS foundations. Maybe that is why these concealers are so expensive. The shade medium matches my skin perfectly. Although I am oily, it does not feel greasy on me. It holds on the whole day and I have no complaints whatsoever. Highly recommended.
This is okay but I recommend that you moisturize heavily under the eyes because it looks cake like and drying. It lasted only 5 hours on me and is pretty much a mediocre product. It did blend well though.
EL makes a far better product.
My experience with this concealer has gone from okayish to terrible.
A few good things about it is that its the only concealer that matches my skin tone perfectly. It also blends well and looks very natural... but that's the thing. It looks natural because it doesn't do it's job - conceal! I have minor hyper pigmentation marks which seem to go away after putting it on with a very light hand, but even after giving it quite a while to set, it does not stay put. It seems to slide all over the place and I find myself needing to reapply layers and layers of it, which ends up looking horribly cakey. I feel that it's due to the formula being too wet :( won't buy again!
Shout out to this ds underdog
Since I've suffered from acne forever basically, I have probably tried every concealer to cover hyperpigmemtation scars.
I find this lasts longer on my scars than mac PLW. By the end of the day my hyperpigmemtation spots are highly visible wearing PLW, but this covers them completely and all day without me having to cake it on.
02 light is a perfect perfect match on my nc15 skin
Price (PLW is $19 for .3 oz and this is like $9 for .2 oz)
Great texture- not so thin it doesn't cover but light enough to move easily around the skin and work quickly
Doe foot applicator
Has salicylic acid- dont use for undereye concealer. I still use PLW for that (nw20)
Should have more product for a ds brand (*i feel*)
All in all this is a great product that no one ever talks about. Can be hard to find at times, but I'll go out of my way bc this is such a great concealer.
I found this product to be a little pricey. I purchased it at Target here in CA for $10, it was more than my foundation, also by Revlon (Color stay Foundation) which was on sale for $8.99. Pros: Easy application, good coverage Cons: Pricey, hard to blend I think I may have gotten a shade too light, and this is why it is hard to blend. I thought that it was going to cover zits a lot better than it does, you can still see some redness after I put it on. But I would still recommend this to anyone! Just make sure you get the right color!
This concealer is ok. Nothing to write home about though. I find it to be light/medium, depending on how you apply it.
Pros - covers the way it should if applied correctly
- blends well if blended immediately
- "01 Fair" matched even my super pale complexion
Cons - doesn't last long
- if you try to build it, it looks cakey
- have to tap undereye lines for a few minutes after application to avoid having those bright, concealer-creases
Point of note - a pro or con depending on what you're looking for, this is essentially a light coverage concealer. I don't currently have anything major to cover up, so it's alright for me. But when I do, I have to try to build it, which takes way too much carefulness for me to want to do it very often.
Overall, I'll continue to use it until it runs out, at which point, if I can't find anything immediately that I think is better, I'll buy it again. It's not so bad that I would try "anything else". But I'll be looking for something better when it's done. :)
this is an excellent concealer!
I like the feel on my skin and it has a soft brush that is easy to
sweep under your eyes or dot on your nose!
it does what it says on the packaging! COLOURSTAY, the colour lasts all day long
overall, I would say it is a lightweight fluid concealer that is gentle to apply, lasts long and looks great, it is a wonder product in my opinion!
I have been using ZA Perfect Fit Concealer which works really great in my opinion before switching this. Decided to get this second hand, because it retails for $19.90 in my country (which is pretty expensive in my opinion considering this is a drugstore brand) and also because the colourstay range from Revlon has very good reviews - I thought this would be worth giving it a shot.
Things I usually look for in a concealer:
-> thick consistency YET does not feel or look cake
-> able to give medium - full coverage
-> packaging should be convenient and not cause spillage
Shade: 05 Medium Deep (I'm roughly a NC30-35)
+ Buildable coverage - won't look extremely cakey (I live in humid conditions)
+ Able to give medium-full coverage
+ Comes in a tube - you just have to dab on the amt of concealer you want, will not cause spillage
+ Has a scent that smells very much like......chocolate(?) **: it does not bother me though, I just felt surprised by the scent of it.
- Does not last for more than 3-4 hours.
- Needs to be reapplied, which sucks because I do not have the time to reapply them!
- Product is very thick, you have to be wary about putting too much - a little can go a long way in my opinion!
Overall, it didn't really exceed my expectations considering that I really love their colourstay foundation and photoready foundation, maybe I expected that the product can have around the same amount of lasting power. I would still prefer to use ZA's Perfect Fit concealer in my opinion.
