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. continued >>
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!
Not only is the creamy texture of this concealer very moisturizing to my sensitive under-eye area, it has amazing coverage for my inherited dark circles. I have this in B which is perfect for my NC20-25 skin. I also really like the tube that it comes in. Highly recommend, especially if you are looking for a concealer that is moisturizing. Love it!
I got this product to cover my very dark undereye circles. I wanted a concealer that was thick and heavily pigmented, but still a liquid. I get good coverage from concealer sticks, but they end up looking cakey. I hoped this would be a good balance.
While this product does have a LOT of pigment, it did nothing for my undereye circles. The liquid is greasy, meaning I always have to cover it with pressed powder. So much for not wanting to look cakey! Not wanting to have wasted $23, I tried it on acne. Again, the greasiness meant that it seemed to slide right off the blemish. Ugh. The only thing this concealer is good for is evening out skin tone. I use it to cover broken capillaries on the sides of my nose and faded acne scars. It actually works well for that, but if I wore a heavier foundation I probably wouldn't need it at all.
This was a disappointment because I've really liked other Stila products. But something about this concealer just isn't right. Other products are heavily pigmented and kind of dewey, but in this case, the pigments are just sliding around in all that greasiness.
I picked this up today at my local Sephora and I must say.. this is the first time I actually got a concealer to match my skintone. Every other concealer i tried was either too light, too dark, too orange, too beige, too ashy, too pink too something! I tried this in the shade "E" and it literally disappeared on my hand. I figured maybe the lighting was off (which is normally the case) but when i got to my car in natural lighting, it actually looked good. I couldn't wait to go home and try it on my face. I use it to cover some brown patches on my cheeks and when I applied it with my shadow brush from real techniques, it was perfect. almost undetectable under makeup. i was really shocked. It looked amazing, no breakouts and flawless coverage. I will continue to purchase.
Its not too bad, although a little on the thicker side in consistency.
may be a little too dry and thick for undereye coverage - better as a blemish concealer. I much much prefer the Stila Illuminating Concealer.
