I bought this because i loved the almay clear complexion concealer, so i had high hopes for this one. Unfortunately, this one just didnt do it for me. Even though the color was spot on, the coverage was that of a light to medium coverage foundation. I think it would need to have a much thicker consistency to be effective, it seemed almost watered down. I also didnt notice any significant 'line smoothing'. (although it didnt crease, maybe thats what they meant by line smoothing?) Either way, i'll be trying a different concealer next time.
A pretty basic lightweight concealer at a decent DS price. Nice smooth texture makes it very easy to apply and the staying power is not bad either. It does settle into my fine lines a bit but nothing too ghastly and it's hard to find a concealer at any price that won't do that. I use the wand to dot the product where I need it (after I apply BB cream) and then use a finger to gently pat it into my skin. I find this works much better at concealing red tones like blemishes and broken capillaries rather than blue tones such as under the eye area. For dark circles around the eye this stuff is just too light. Probably wouldn't repurchase unless it was on for a bargain price.
Interesting to see the mixed reviews of this concealer. I picked it up because I've been trying to find an undereye concealer that doesn't get stuck in the lines under my eyes or accentuate dryness. I'm 29 and this is an increasing issue for me. I recently tried the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Treatment Concealer and was so disappointed at how drying and awful it was for fine lines. I decided to pick this one up because I have this perception that Almay caters for slightly older skin so I thought they would know what they were doing when it comes to fine lines. Overall I would say this isn't a bad concealer. It doesn't accentuate fine lines or undereye dryness (though it doesn't completely mask these things either). It lasts pretty well and gives a good level of coverage. I will repurchase if I don't find something else better.
It's okay, it's not terrible. I've found that it takes a little extra effort to blend completely, and it can emphasize dry patches. I also wish there was a lighter shade.
The best thing about this concealer is the SPF, and so I'm grateful that I had it this summer. However, I don't think I'll be purchasing this again.
Oh my god, this is awful. I'm 43 and I barely have any lines. This is supposed to be line-smoothing - ha! This concealer settles into the tiny lines that I have, creating what looks like a tiny flesh-colored river. I am not kidding. I may try it for facial spots only, but I'm not holding out any hope. The only good thing I have to say about it is that the color is OK.
I have to say, I'm shocked that I love this concealer. I picked it up at the latest CVS clearance because 1) MUFE lift is making my eyeliner smeary now that it's getting hot again and 2) it was super cheap. I don't use this on blemishes (and since it's "line smoothing", I wouldn't necessarily attempt to) but I do think it does a good job of brightening the under eye area and it doesn't disappear or make for smeary makeup. I'm not a fan of wand concealers, but overall I'm happy with this product.
This concealer is just ok. I use the color light and I am NC 25. It's not very opaque but it is very smooth and moisturizing. On most days I don't have very dark circles, so this concealer works fine. But on those days where I haven't slept well and have dark circles, this would not cover them at all. I gave it a 3 because this concealer never settled in lines or caked up no matter how dry my skin was or how much i put on. I really liked that. I just wish it was more pigmented. I wouldn't repurchase, just because there are better concealers out there for the price ($10)
I attempted to place this on top of my foundation and when I went to blend it in, it took everything off including my foundation. I was super PO'd especially since I had to restart my makeup because it was impossible to correct afterwards.
Its a OK concealer, I hav purchased it and it did the job for me. Im still on the hunt for better. Pro's = spf 10. Coverage. Hyperallergenic. Cons= The packaging. The price. You have use more product for retouch ups, through out the day.
So, I have dark blue under eye circles and fair skin. This form of coverage doesn't really do a great job at concealing them, in fact, I notice the darkness (due to contrast) more because the pigment is a bit light. I figured that I'd try correcting the blue color (with my benefit corrector) first, then trying the almay concealer over. I'm still trying to work it out, but results are okay at best.
What I do like about the formula is the caffeine, cucumber, red/black/white teas and caffeine used. I also like that the formula is thin enough to not make the fine lines near my eyes cakey or creppy. It does look pretty natural on my skin, is quite blendable and doesn't appear drying to skin, and stays put for hours. For $6, it's not the worst concealer I've ever used, but doesn't offer as much coverage to be effective for my skin.
Overall results are okay.
