I bought this concealer in green and I love it. It blends well into my foundation. I tend to apply a little concealer, then foundation, then apply more concealer as needed. When layered lightly it looks natural and not cakey.
I find it works well over acne redness, but I also use it under my eyes. It lasts a long time too, so minimal touch-ups are involved for those troublesome spots.
This price is great for a product that works this well. It's about six dollars at Sally Beauty Supply.
This review is for the Green Concealer. I have ruddy skin and have wanted to try out a green concealer stick for a while. I picked this up at Sally's Beauty Supply. It cost about $5.00 dollars, but I had a $5.00 dollar coupon. So, basically it was free.
When I first got it, I couldn't wait to use it and applied it right on top of my makeup. It worked great. A little blending and the green was gone along with most of the redness. The next time I used it, I tried applying it to bare skin. WHAT A MESS! It wouldn't blend, and I had a green cast to my skin. That's when I realized the secret was to apply your foundation first then apply the green concealer. This gives the concealer something to blend into. Just a reminder: apply lightly. Remember you can always add more. It's harder to subtract too much.
I bought it today and i'm wearing it now..and ilike it..... it really covers my dark circles very well and gives me a bright look ♥
I always have bags under my eyes no matter how much sleep I get. I use the yellow and it not only covers them but also covers acne marks. This is fantastic it has a great consistancy and coverage. HG!
UPDATE: I no longer use this it is just too thick. I now use Rimmel it more closely matches my skintone and looks more natural.
I purchased this concealer in the color "yellow."
It covers red very well. I found that if you use just the correct moisturizer underneath, the concealer will make an excellent foundation. It also looks flawless in photos if you have oilier skin or a good moisturizer on before hand.
It works as the best foundation I've ever worn in photos and in real life:)-even though it is a concealer. This concealer is a keeper.
I bought this in yellow. It reminded me of my MAC nc30 concealer at the time it was just more yellow. It does a good job at hiding redness and purple circles as long as you apply foundation or TM over it. It dries to a powdery finish though which I don't really like. If you have oily skin you'd probably like it more.
I think this shade was a great match for me. I wanted to use it under my eyes. The effect was really disappointing.
This stuff didn't blend well at all. It just sort of slid around my skin and seemed like it was just sitting there on top of it. Do not want.
I've tried a few yellow concealer sticks from the drugstore: Physician's Formula, Maybelline, etc.
The problem was they were not yellow enough to counteract any discoloration. I tend to suffer from red-purplish under eye discoloration and need a strong yellow tone in my concealers. Maybelline's looked white on my skin and creased and caked like crazy. PF was more yellow, but creased and caked as well.
Palladio's yellow concealer stick is by far the best DRUGSTORE yellow concealer out there. In stick form, that is. I prefer stick/creme formulas because I need the coverage they provide. Palladio's is very pigmented, very yellow. Lasts all day when lightly set with powder.
The consistency is a bit dry, so you must warm it up on your hand first. Apply under the eyes in a patting motion and in LAYERS, building up to desired coverage. Lightly set with powder and I am good to go all day long!
It smells faintly of vanilla. Also, I think they reformulated this concealer because it is not gritty at all any more. I dislike the packaging, but for $5-6, this product is a must have if you have red-purple under eye discoloration.
This is my favorite drugstore brand concealer. Its creamy and easy to blend and doesn't give me any breakout. I bought this in yellow (for my dark eye circles) and fair and it gives good coverage to discolouration. But i do not like how the concealer just sticks out even when screwed down to the maximum, if you are careless, you can easily scrape some of the concealer out onto the cap or whatever. Definitely a repurchase when I run out of this
I actually love this concealer stick, not as concealer, but as a primer for my eyes. I used this before my Urban Decay Primer Potion and I gotta say, this concealer works pretty well too. It's thick and a bit gritty in texture, but has nice coverage. I recommend using this on your eyes!
