The concealer is good. It has good coverage and good staying power while maintaining a light feeling. I am glad that the fair matches my skin tone, because I would hate to "customize" the color.
I received this product as a gift and never guessed I would love it as much as I do. The coverage is amazing. Once I set it with powder, it looks extremely natural and never cakey. I would definitely repurchase this product.
I didn't use a concealer until I got it in my Sheer Cover package but I really like it and I'd say the concealer is more important than the foundation in this case as it covers well.
- Covers nicely
- Doesn't look fake when used properly
- Glides easily
- The package is rather small
- When taken with a finger it easily rubs off on the other colour
- Doesn't cover well on dry skin/dried pimples
BUT, I got this with the tan set and I am not that dark (tan/olive). The darkest colour in this concealer set is a bit too light for me.
What can I say? Eww. I got this in a MyGlam bag, and couldn't stand it. Even the pale colour didn't come close to my colour, so I gave it to a coworker.
She gave it back two days later saying "It goes on streaky, and feels like oil. I don't want it." So it went in the trash.
The most pointless and useless concealer I have come across to date.
In all a great concealer with good color matches. The two shades allow you to blend further to get a perfect match in each area. It is relatively sheer so there aren't problems with it getting cakey looking. It did not break me out even though I have acne prone skin. I don't need to use it over large areas so I cannot speak to how well it would cover a large flaw, but it works for minor under eye circles and blemishes. I will definitely buy it again.
Update: I have since decided that I didn't want the auto ship and experienced what others have complained about. It's pretty tough to find anyone at their customer service who can help you. This in no way affects what I think about the effectiveness of the makeup, but it is a concern potential buyers should be aware of.
This is a relatively sheer concealer. I find it works best to cover redness around my nose and on my chin, as well as some smaller zits. It does not work for my undereye circles, or my cystic acne scars.
I do like how soft the texture is. It goes on very smooth, and it is not cakey. No weird scent, and the container it comes in is nice and compact and travels well.
I will probably not purchase again just because i have some other concealers I like better and that perform better for a fraction of the cost.
I use the duo in the 'tan' complexion... I think that's what it's called, usually I use both colours together!
It's great coverage for a small freckle on my cheek I don't like , and a small pink scar on my cheek, also covers a few small sun damaged lines on my nose but for coverage under my eyes...... HORRIBLE! It kind of sinks in and makes under my eyes look scaly... Really strange considering it's great for everything else.... So sometimes when I decide to use it under my eyes I mix both colours and lightly pat a tiny bit under my eyes with my finger, then apply my sheer cover mineral powder over it. Works well :)
i have this concealer but its not the duo one its the one that just has one single shade (medium) i dont think this its good for under your eyes because its too thick unless you like that..this color is too light on my face so i have to use it before my powder but this would be good as a spot/pimple concealer
This duo concealer works pretty well for me. All of the duos have one beige/yellowish-toned color and one peachy color. They have jojoba and allantoin and these ingredients help make the concealers creamy and moist enough to be spread easily. I use the peachy color for my undereye circles and setting them with a bit of finishing powder (I use MAC MSF) prevents it from creasing. Coverage is buildable, but with one layer is not that opaque. I need at least two layers to cover. This concealer did not dry out my eye area or my pimples when I use it to cover them. Overall a good concealer!
Can be purchased on http://www.sheercover.com for $29.95 and is not widely available elsewhere, which is inconvenient for many people.
I LOVE this concealer!! It was my first concealer and I recieved it off a website. I recently lost it which made me extremely sad because it is so pricey. I love the application, I used a flat concealer brush, it goes on thin and creamy. This allows me to double up if I need to cover a blemish but just apply one layer for my under eye circles. Recently I haven't been wearing makeup but there are some days where I'm just so tired that I have needed a good concealer for my bags and dark under eyes. I recommend this to anyone who has some cash to spend and needs a good concealer.
