I looove this concealer!!!
I have acne, dry patches, dark marks and scarring and this covers it all! So far this is my HG!
I have found if you apply it after your foundation, using a good small pointed brush and apply it all over the 'mark', then let it dry (1-2 secs), blend a bit with your finger, then re-apply to the area if it needs it, then the 'mark' is GONE!
It lasts all day...now all I need is to find my HG foundation ; )
The tube is perfect allowing as much product to come out as you want and you only need a tiny bit, so it will last ages!
I am a NC15 and I use #4 which is a perfect match!
I really loved this concealer for dark circles and covering up acne. I used to use MAC concealers but the color was always changing and then they discontinued the one I liked. This one is a little bit dryer than the MUF Full Cover concealer, but the color was just fair enough for me. I have used this concealer for a long time but recently I went to repurchase it and they were out so they suggested I try the full cover concealer in the tube, it works great, and I think I will repurchase it instead of this one next time, it's more moisturizing. Perhaps you could try it if you didn't like this one. The only downfall with this one is hygienically it's not very clean.
UPDATE: Found out this was breaking me out along my jaw line...just great lol.
So this is crazy expensive...but it works.
My background story regarding concealer: I really loved my MAC Studio finish concealer but I could never find my shade - NC30 was too yellow, NW25 was far too orange and NC 20 was too light. So I fearfully switched to another brand - fearfully I say because I break out from nearly every ingredient. I was super reluctant to stray from Studio Finish just because it was non-acnegenic and provided good coverage.
Anyways on to MUFE Extreme Camouflage (in the tube). Its quite pigmented - but certainly not as much as they make it seem. MAC studio finish was more pigmented. I have to layer it on twice to cover up say a scar left over from a zit. However, it dries to a matte finish and stays on pretty much all day. MAC studio finish melted within about three hours on my greasy skin. It's quite thick and I found the best way to blend it in is to use your fingers because with brushes I was left with awful streak marks.
The best part for me by far was that it didn't break me out which like I said is super rare for me because while I don't have persistent acne (if I wear no makeup I have clear skin), pretty much every time of makeup on the market makes my sensitive skin break out.
For reference, I'm shade Ivory 6 which is a decent match to my fair olive skin.
This provides no coverage. Dose not blend. smells bad. The drug store concealors are better than this.
I was not impressed with this product. Despite all the positive reviews, this really did not work for me. I have severe acne scarring, and this did not provide the "full coverage" I was looking for. It was difficult to blend, and had too much yellow undertones (I had this in #4 and #6) so that whenever I tried to conceal a blemish, there would be a yellow dot instead of a skin-colored dot. Such a disappointment, considering it was near $40 CAD and I had such high hopes. However, this product did have good lasting power for my oily skin, although it was not "water-proof".
I was ultimately not impressed with MUFE's HD foundation but reading good reviews about this concealer, I went and splurged $30 for the half-ounce tube.
I use it for both dark circles and blemishes. It works great for both. I haven't seen it settle into the fine lines underneath my eyes and stays put for a while, but not all day, so I need touch-ups but only about twice throughout the day. The tube dispenses the right amount, not too much, not too little, depending on how much you require.
One star off because again, it's $30 for half an ounce. However, it seems that the good concealers are on the expensive side, from what I've seen. The shade I chose is perfect for my skintone though and it does an overall good job holding up throughout the day so I will repurchase.
This is an excellent concealer. It covers my blemishes, purple facial veins and dark circles very well. I like the squeeze tube, and a little goes a long way, so it will last me a LONG time. My only complaint is that it can be a little drying, especially under the eyes. The shade 6 is perfect for my summer skin (NC25), but I can't find a match for my winter skin, I've tried 4 which was a little off, and 2 was too light.
Hereís my scoop:
Pros: The product is very good in covering blemishes, acne scars, and dark under-eye circles. Another plus, itís waterproof. It stays on all day. The tube may look little but this little tube lasts me for months. And itís non-comedogenic. :)
Cons: It seeps into my under eye creases and accentuates those few lines I have. Ugh! Also, it doesnít blend well, you have to dab it quickly otherwise it dries up really fast.
My two cents would be, using a primer if you have dry skin. The concealer is a bit on the dry side at first. Or use it after you put the foundation.
I do like this product.It says to put on before foundation but I put it on after.First I use my bobbi brown corrector and then I put this on top of that.I was expecting more from this product speaking I spent 30$ on it.The color match is good and I like the consistancey.It doesnt seem to crease and lasts longer then most concealers I have used.The down side is that it doesnt seem to cover my dark circles completley(my biggest flaw)It seems to brighten the eye area instead of covering it.Believe me my dark circles look alot better after using this but it doesnt give the coverage I want.
So if you have bad dark circles and want full coverage I wouldnt recomend it because it just seems to brighten not cover.
If your circles arent that bad I would say give this a try or maybe just ask for a sample before you purchase.This stuff isnt cheap so trying a sample first can be helpful
Hope this helped
I just returned this.I would just keep adding more and more concealer because the coverage wasnt what I wanted.It still didnt help thought and just ended up looking dry.Might as well get my money back for something I'm not to crazy about.I went back to my MAC studio finish.
Love this concealor! matches my skin prefectly, which is hard for my skin tone. Other concealors that I have tried often look ashy or pale on me, but this one gets the job done. It's stays on my super oily skin and doesn't run. A little goes a long way! Plus I use this to cover tattoos that I have when I go to work.
