This is my new HG Concealer

I have an arsenal of concealers, and use all. I tend to skip foundation on most days, and even if I use a light foundation, I have redness around my nose and a few broken capilaries

This stuff rocks

I had tried the LM, one in the pink / salmon had too much slip for me, the other in the dual case (yellow / salmon) is too dry and you have to mix it

Bought this in the right color

Love the packaging, even has a mirror

You just rub a bit on your finger to warm it up, and then press into your skin

It is full coverage but it doesn't stick out as "CONCEALER"

I set it with ambinet lighting powder (Hourglass)

Simple and easy

I still use either NARS Cream Glow Concealer or Maybelline FIT ME Concealer under my eyes and in a few areas to brighten me up

PROS
1). Easy to Use
2). Melts into skin (I have the right color)
3). Does not transfer
4). Doesn't take up much space in make up bag or purse
5). Makes touching up your face really easy

CONS
1). EXPENSIVE
2). Not really hygenic, I suppose I could take a bit out of the package and put it on the back of my hand, but I just rub my finger into the pot to warm it up

Using a doe type concealer is just as non hygenic, so I will just have to buy a few of these a year, my skin changes colors

TIP:
REALLY get the right color to match your skin. The color range is really different color to color. If you get the right color, bingo. If you don't, well its going to look "off" and need blending.

I do not use undereyes, so cannot comment about how well it works for dark circles

This is another thing I got last Christmas and I've got to say I'm just not a huge fan of it

A little background for this - I had been on the hunt for a concealer for a while and I noticed that this was on sale with a slightly marked down price in Boots, I was thrilled understandably, double wear makeup is meant to have amazing coverage so this stuff will be good right?

I got this first in the shade Extra Light and then in Light Medium (the guy who colour matched me the first time gave me a shade that was three shades lighter than my skin lol) this stuff comes in a little pot, kind of like the Bobby Brown correctors and is pretty dry honestly, I had to really work with this at first to get any product up from it

While we're on this subject I just want to say that I HATE the packaging, it's so unhygenic and there's nothign you can do to stop dirt from getting into the product T_T

As for coverage I'm dealing with some quite nasty dark circles, I look like I've been punched each morning (not even joking on that one) so I need something pretty full on to cover it, I've yet to find anything that is actually up to the job

This stuff has pretty decent coverage, if you only had light to medium dark circles to cover then this would probably work but for me it just lessens the problem rather than actually hiding it

Another thing is that since it is so dry unless you moisturize like crazy or you're 12 this will crease and cake unlike anything else, I looked 70 in about two hours

In short I would NOT recommend this, I would instead try the Bobby Brown counter since their correctors actually feel nice and like they wouldn't make me look ancient

Paula's Choice rated this as a "best" concealer but sorry Paula, I disagree. I am giving this product 2 stars because it is highly pigmented, but the texture is very thick and difficult to blend into my skin. The finish is also cakey and doesn't really 'melt' into my skin. I purchased this concealer mainly because of the high SPF 35 rating, but the fact that it comes in a flip top compact doesn't give me confidence about it's stability as a sun protector, although the packaging is really cute and I like that it has a mirror in it. The lady at the counter recommended using a concealer brush to pick up and apply the product, but I find the texture too dry using that method. Instead I have to swirl my finger into the pan to warm it up and even then it's difficult to work with. I'm disappointed because I was hoping the texture would be similar to my Bobbi Brown stick foundation which I love and wish contained SPF. The sales lady chose the color 1C light (cool) which is a light/medium beige shade and just an okay match for my NC25/30 neutral skintone. I am on the fence about returning this product but I don't plan on repurchasing. Hence the search for a creamy concealer with a high SPF rating continues.

Holy grail concealer!! I use this more for blemishes/spots/freckles or redness rather than under eye but you can definitely use this for both. Only thing is, if you're using it for under eye definitely use an eye cream prior. I bought this after owning the very similar Sephora 8 hr perfect cover concealer. I tried this because the 1st shade in the Sephora line was too dark/yellow. I use this in very light and have zero complaints. It's very creamy and blends wonderfully into the skin. I use a tiny bit and I get the coverage I need and I'm set.

This is the only make-up I have ever returned to the store. Thick, impossible to blend and just looked orange on my pale skin (I bought the palest shade). It reminded me of the cheap concealer I bought as a teenager which resulted in orange patches all over my face. Not a good look. Anyway I exchanged this for the creamier version in a tube which is much better and great customer service from EL!

This is an ok, meh kind of product for me.
I have it in the shade 4N to match my NC44 South Asian skin.
I agree with the previous reviewer, this is not the best for the under eye as I find it does an less than average job of concealing my very dark under eye circles. I therefore use this in conjunction with other concealers to even out skin tone or to cover blemishes.
It has a nice creamy consistency and looks nice and smooth when used to cover blemishes on the skin, however I don't find to to particularly last.
Overall, a pretty average product.

I am always searching for concealer because I have BAD undereye circles(genetic). I tried MAC concealer in a pot and it covers but creases like crazy. With EL I had almost identical experience. Color I had was 1N I believe which is the lightest one but its not really ivory more yellowish beige-it does cover but once again, creases. I dont' even have major lines around my eyes but if you smile, it will be enough. I set it lightly with powder, btw. Without it, it smears and creases even worse. if you want that kind of concealer, I suggest MAC because they have better color choices. If you are super pale like I am, most colors at EL will be too dark and yellowish.
This concealer is best used on blemishes and the like, not for under eyes

This concealer is just AMAZING. I got it as a gift from my dad but wow, I love it! I used the 3C Medium (cool) shade and it fit my skin perfect, although i am always ivory/ light shade. It covers everything - it is definately best coverage concealer I used. It lasts all day. The only minus of the concealer is the price, but it's definately worth it.

Wow. Everything about this concealer is so great. I'm surprised it's not as popular as I thought it would be. Coverage is superb, blends in very well to my skin but bare in mind that only happens if the shade matches your exact skin colour. It's not drying and doesn't crease.

However, it dries up on my skin A LITTLE only because my skin is super duper dry due to an allergic reaction I've had to another product which totally dried out my skin.

The texture is amazingly soft and creamy. Truly a dream to apply. Also, one thing I hardly used to care about but I thought I'd still mention it, the packaging! It's lovely! Comes in a little blue and gold classy box!

I just hope this doesn't harm my skin in the future at all as my skin is sensitive. I will be updating to let you know whether it still works for me.

Update - Taking a few lippies off as this gave me an allergic reaction. It was truly too good to be true. Be careful and test on one area of yur face.
