Oh wow, I love this stuff!! I have alot of redness in my cheek area and some scarring spots from old blemishes and I use this green little tube on all of those troublesome areas before applying foundation and it really does cover them and makes my foundation go on very smooth. You can not see any redness or spots! This stuff works great!!
Covers quite well! I use this green concealer mainly for acne and so far, it's great! Covers the redness well! It's a nice creamy formula, so it blends into skin quite easily. Also, I do think it is a bit sheer, but has buildable coverage. GREAT drugstore find.
I personally love Physician's Formula concealers. I've been using them since I was in highschool up until now that I'm 23. They have redesigned the packaging but i personally think it still looks cheap. I actually prefer the old dark grey packaging as opposed to the shiny silver tube packaging. Anyways, I use the green and yellow concealer stick. The green is designed for red spots and blemishes but I like to use it for my under eye area as a corrector/base. I also go in with the stick around and on top of my nose. This corrects the redness really well. It does crease slightly in my under eye area but what can I do. When you look at the amount of product you get, it doesn't look like much, but one of these concealer sticks last me for several months to more than over a year. Will continue to repurchase for years to come.
I really wanted to like this, especially after having really good luck with Physicians Formula in general.
But it just didn't do it for me.
When I put this over my blemishes in the hope that the green will colour-correct the redness of my acne scarring, it's so sheer that it hardly does anything, I find myself having to layer other concealers on top just to get the coverage I need.
The formulation feels greasy/slippery, and it just doesn't do what it should do, at least for a stick concealer anyway. It really only has the coverage of a liquid concealer, at best.
The staying power isn't too amazing, but I've come across worse. I would stay right away from this if you have oily skin.
I'm really just keeping it around because I don't want to waste it, and admittedly it does work a little better if used over a primer.
So I'm not going to lie sometimes I pop my pimples. It's gross, I know. I ended up watching this video on YouTube about covering up popped pimples and redness all that stuff. The girl in the video was using MAC but I don't really live near a sephora so I did some looking around online and found this. All the local cvs make walgreens sell this stuff. So I scooped it up and I love it. I kind of hate that its a stick though but eh it works great and isn't super expensive. It also doesn't irritate my skin either. :)
I LOVE this product.
- covers most of my redness
- not cakey
I would love to see them come up with a liquid primer version of this!
I got this in Green because I had the Yellow and I really liked it.
I never really understood the whole color balancing thing (only tone corrector I had tried was Elf's Tone Correcting Powder--a little chalky)
Anyway, I have a some redness on my cheeks and my nose and I wanted to try this to see if it would get rid of it. I originally had Light stick to try for this purpose, which I felt didn't really cover anything but also felt and looked cakey! Anyway, this green stick does a MUCH BETTER job. I am light skinned, and this may be different for darker skin tones, but I am able to use this product on it's own (apply very lightly and blend well.) without any other products. I love the creamy consistency, although I am worried that the product might dry out before I use all of it since you don't need very much at all. I find it very easy to blend into my skin to combat the redness. I would use either a concealer brush, eyeshadow brush (more often than not I use this to apply concealer), or foundation brush (flat/liquid type). For this particular color, I like the foundation brush most to blend because it distributes the product lightly and evenly across my cheeks.
It is the best product I've used so far to get rid of redness. The packaging is convenient though sometimes it could look like you have a seafoam lipstick. If I ever did run out, I would probably repurchase, unless some type of miracle gets rid of the redness in my face! (Or if I found a perfect foundation--working between a few types right now.) I think I got it at Walgreens for only 79 cents on sale, though it seems other places it's about 5-6$.
Bottom line: Hides redness. Great if you're looking for a color corrector that isn't powder/drying.
This concealer covers redness so well! You have to REALLY blend this though, especially if you have darker skin! It works great under powder/cream foundations. It also gives nice and natural looking coverage :) You also get your money's worth, a little bit of this concealer really goes a long way. I've had this concealer for almost a year, and still have a lot left! I would for sure buy this again.
The people that complain about this product are using it the wrong way!
Its not supposed to be used alone and blended in by itself or else you will look like an alien.
I bought this regardless of the reviews and based on my understanding of green cancelling out redness on the skin.
I just recently experienced a breakout from some products that I used and got some hyperpigmentation left from acne, and needed something with more coverage as my light coverage foundation just wasn't cutting it.
I prefer to have light coverage all over just to even out my skin tone and full coverage in the needed areas.
So I applied this using a concealer brush because just wiping it on would be totally unsanitary because it comes in a lipstick applicator.
And I just applied where my marks were not too thick and not too thin, just enough to cancel out all the red. Then WITHOUT blending it into my skin I applied my foundation using the stippling and blending technique and it worked lovely! You have to be really light handed though when you blend in your foundation or else you will just smear off the concealer.
But I feel that it lasts a long time 8-9 hours cause that's as long as I have kept it on, I will update if I have to use it for longer than that and see how long it lasts.
But I do recommend this if you are suffering from redness/red marks because its conceals perfectly and topped off with your favourite foundation its great.
