I needed a concealer to multi-task my dark circles and my red nose and cheeks. This does not work for that. It's hard to put on for me because it's thick, so it does not glide on. If I want to put it on my cheeks and nose then I have to mix it with moisturizer. Aside from that, the coverage was great and I never had any problems with creasing. This was also an excellent color for my hard-to-match skin.
This is the best concealer I've ever used! I can use it under my eyes without it exaggerating my fine lines which is amazing. It makes my dark circles almost undetectable. I mix this with the Stila Tinted Moisturizer I use to apply to my cheeks and nose to cover up the rosacea redness I have. This concealer wears all day long when set with Laura Mercier Loose Powder. Shade A is a good match for my my NC15 skin tone.
This concealer looks cakey and is impossible to blend in to the undereye area. Awful. Even when i do rub it in with my fingers, it doesn't blend in! I prefer MAC prolongwear concealer.
I find stila face products are far too yellow for me. I purchased this online using my best judgement for my shade so that may have affected the payoff on me. Nonetheless, I find this concealer far too drying for me, which means it also creased like crazy.
Finally.. Great coverage! Only issue is that sometimes it creates lines when wearing it under eye however a primer may alleviate that problem!
First I have to say, that find a concealer that I like is next to impossible. I do love Stila products, especially their shadows. That said, I was very unimpressed w this concealer. I felt like it was a tad "oily." I'm sure this isn't a problem for everyone, but, for me, it didn't have staying power because of this. I felt like if I touched the concealer I would rub it off, even after letting it "bake", patting it in and setting w powder. I really wanted to like it, but it just wasn't good coverage or long lasting. I'm sure other people like it as it does feel nice and spreads well. Just not my cup of tea :(
This is a good concealer, but for the price I expected it to be long wearing. Its has light-medium coverage that is easy to blend & comes in a varied shade range. I use it for blemishes/freckles.
Besides the fading throughout the day it does the job. I won't repurchase because I can find something less expensive & of the same quality.
I bought this concealer in conjunction with the Stila foundation a year ago. I am a big fan of this concealer because I suffer from acne along my chin and it masks blemishes and blends very well with the right foundation. Having said that, it has a very thick consistency, which is off-putting when you first begin using it, and I always use a brush to apply the concealer, blending it with my fingers is very difficult.
I have used this concealer with a couple of foundations, and for some reason I have found that it plays very well with medium to high end brands (Stila, Chanel, MUFE) and blends wonderfully, but with lower end brands (Sonia Kashuk, Revlon) it tends to come out cakey, bumpy, and is very difficult to blend.
This was one of the better concealers that I happened to run by over the past few years. In particular it has a very moisturizing quality that my skin needs. The blending capability is easier with this liquid formula and compared to the dry, thick concealer sticks I prefer using this on a daily basis as it won't add a thick unnecessary layer of product on my skin. It gives fairly good coverage. I have to dab two thin layers of the concealer before I reach the medium-full coverage that I desire, so it doesn't give full coverage for me but does well enough to hide my redness and acne marks on my skin. I didn't find it to fade or wear away significantly over several hours, but with liquid makeup, it does tend to fade after some time and I did have to reapply after a couple of hours. It comes in a broad range of shades for pink, yellow and dark toned skin. The packaging I find makes it easier to control the amount of product I squeeze out so I don't have to use too much at one time. There's a simplistic earthiness about Stila products that I tend to run back. The price might be overbearing, but concealer is one product I particularly invest on since making my face appear fresh and even sets the foundation for the rest of the makeup that goes on me. Even if I pretty my eyes up and coat my lips with a lavish shade of rouge, if my face appears red and uneven with visible marks, then it distracts from the rest of my facial features.
I thought this was a great product at first! I bought it for 23 dollars in shade b. My under eye circles are not the worst, but they are visible with some veins that can show through. How depressing :/ This concealer has a very thick consistency but at times did seem to accentuate dry patches under my eye that weren't noticeable without concealer. It creased even after set with powder. Even when I patted it back in it would crease. It also wears away within a few hours, and my skin is not oily under my eyes. The packaging was fine, a little screw on cap, easy to get the product out. But it didn't work for me. Time to return!
