Do not buy this product. It is not the worst, but not very good at all. It slips off the skin in hardly any time at all, creases A LOT under eyes, has a very sheer coverage, and a horrible ashy colour.
I bought this on a whim and I really like it. As long as I don't over apply and set it with powder it covers well and doesn't slip into fine lines. I use it under my eyes and on my lids; I also use it to cover rosacea redness on my chin and cheeks. The lightest color, Soft Ivory, works for me but there aren't many colors to choose from. Soft Ivory is a great 'real skin tone' color and you can't beat the price. If you're looking for a good concealer, I do recommend this.
Yes, I dab this on the occasional blemish, but I also use it on my eyelids. When set with a little powder, it lasts better than most eyeshadows on my oily lids. (I use the Soft Ivory shade.) I only give it a 4 because their discontinued No-Slip Concealer was even better.
Decent coverage, and doesn't seem to be breaking me out. However, it makes my skin look very oily and gives that "makeup" appearance.
I just got this product in the mail yesterday. I've tried it for 2 days now. I gave it 3 lippies because it does conceal my undereye circles, but it settles into the lines under my eyes right away. Both days I found myself patting out the creases with my fingers to get it to look OK. I found this concealer to be a little dry and slightly yellow too. I wouldn't use it for covering blemishes. As far as the packaging goes, it could be a lot better. It would work fine if you use a concealer brush, but I use a makeup sponge. I wound up returning it because I couldn't make it work.
Count me among those surprised that this concealer doesn't get better ratings. I have tried just about every concealer out there, including some that are very expensive, and this one gives them all a run for their money.
I wanted a concealer that I could use on eyelids and under eyes, as well as on blemishes or any discolorations that need full coverage. Well, this concealer definitely delivers. I use a tinted moisturizer to even out my skin, and this takes me the rest of the way to flawless by covering any imperfections.
I'm fortunate to have found one of the two shades (the lighter one) that is a perfect match for my skin, but definitely hope Paula thinks about expanding her shade ranges for all of her products.
I rarely give 1 Lippie to products, but this deserves it. Paula's makeup line sucks, it really does. Her skincare products are awesome, but I have yet to find any of her makeup products even satisfactory. This "concealer" is not capable of concealing much of anything. I don't even see it working for people with very mild issues, as it is very sheer and it slides all over your face regardless of how you set it. I've found her foundations to be the same way, way too sheer, greasy, and just all around inadequate.
I'm surprised this doesn't have better ratings. This is my HG concealer by far. It's super creamy and blends into my skin/foundation with just a bit of finger-patting. It doesn't settle into lines or pores (on me, at least) and provides EXCELLENT coverage while still looking very natural. I also love that this concealer has just the right amount of yellow tones to blend down imperfections and look natural while still being flesh-toned and wearable. The shade selection is VERY low but I believe that is because this isn't a very popular product. It still works out for me because Soft Ivory is a great match, but more shades would be nice. Overall I think PC is a great company with excellent customer service and skin-friendly, high quality product formulations... all for a very nice price.
TERRIBLE!!! it does everything that I dont want in a concealer. It slips, it settles in creases, it looks cakey, and it only comes in light shade...super light shades! But I got the sample of this, so maybe thats why.
I've tried MAC Studio Finish Concealer in NW25 which I thought was great. Then when I ran out of that, I tried MAC Studio Sculpt Concealer in NW25 which I thought was great also. Always willing to try something different before I settle on one thing, I ordered Paula's Choice Soft Cream Concealer in Soft Neutral. I feel this one blew the other 2 out of the water! For me, the consistency and coverage was just right. Not too creamy, not too thick. You can adjust the coverage from light to heavy by layering if need be. The packaging which is a flip top compact is just plain clear - nothing fancy or classy, practical. I'd prefer a screw top to keep it air tight.
