This is my HG concealer. I've been using it for 3 years now, and I love it. I have acne prone skin, and this helps to cover my red spots and blemishes very well. Also, the tube lasts for a very long time. I've had my tube for almost a year now, and it still has product left in it. Cheap concealer that lasts forever and works great ... what's not to love?
This is an amazing concealer! I'd been using the Coastal Scents Cam Quad for quite a long time, and I decided it was taking too long (and too much effort) to use it anymore. So I picked up this liquid one. It covers up my under eye circles, redness, and blemishes, with literally only one layer! This is the best liquid concealer I've EVER USED. By the way, I got it from Target.
Wow, I am surprised by the number of comments about this concealer being "watery" and not covering blemishes. This is my favorite concealer--actually, the only one I use, after trying NARS stick concealer, Lancome tube concealer, and many others. I have used CG Fresh Complexion exclusively for years and love it! And I'm 39, with far-from-perfect skin!
The shade range is somewhat limited, and runs quite pale. I use "Creamy Natural," even though I have ivory skin. But it is a perfect match for my skin; blends very well; and lasts a good 12-16 hours, even on my oily skin. It is the most carefree concealer I've ever used, and I use it under my eyes, as an eyelid base, and on blemishes. I just dot on, pat on, and go (sometimes I "set" my concealer with a bit of powder, too). I guess this is a product you need to try for yourself, as the opinions on MUA are quite polarized. Me? I'm happy to shell out $5 about once a year for a product that just does the job perfectly.
I found this product to be very light but it also covered my extreme dark circles very well considering .......I will definetly buy again...it blends very well....I also found it to match my skin very well (Classic Ivory) ...and when wearing throughout the day i found that i can barely feel it at all.....very nice, non drying and affordable.....I prefer this formula over the "stick" concealer Ive always used..definetly recomend this...."I purchased this of my own free will and money"
i am a teenage girl with some acne, and i found that this product is pretty good. i use a sponge to blend it, and then some powder to set it.
there are people on here that say if you try to layer it, it will become cakey. ive found this is true for MOST concealers
if you use a bit on a sponge, blend, and use some powder, you should be ok.
It was way too sheer to cover anything on my face. I bought it hoping that it'd conceal my dark under eye circles, but it does nothing for me. The color I got was Soft Honey and it was too dark for me (it's better for tan girls). I tried using it on a fading acne scar, and it didn't work on that either. It kind of settles into the fine lines too. I think this would work better on people who have very little to cover up because this is way to sheer to hide anything.
Now I just use it as a "lip concealer" under my tinted lip gloss 'cos I don't want to toss out a huge tube of this. I have pigmented lips (I hate how dark they are!) and it works okay at canceling out the purplish color of my lips.
I ended up returning this product because it looked really unnatural on my skin and I've had to try two different shades, and neither of them even matched my skin tone or at least looked natural on me. It had kind of a Grey tone to it that kind of made my under eyes look worse.
I use this concealer for most of my problem areas, a.k.a. redness and under eye circles. It works pretty well and isn't cakey, this is decent for a drugstore concealer. I am sure it cannot compare to say, the $40 ysl concealers, but eh, I'd never spend that much on a product I use over tiny areas of my face anyway. Personally, I like the "watery" consistency of this concealer, as I do not like putting heavy products underneath my eyes. :)
I frankly don't know what I was thinking buying this product. I ran out of my MAC studio sculpt and There is no mac counter or sephora in my city. Anyway, the consistency is watery and If you layer it, it starts looking cakey. It does not cover my blemishes and makes redness look kind of a lavenderish purple...really.. it's ridiculous. I got the color "Creamy Natural" -- which really tells you NOTHING about what shade I am... Overall, I would NOT buy this again since it is not suited for my liking.. Maybe a teenager who is just beginning to start wearing makeup or someone who does not need full coverage would benefit from it but, then again, it is Cover Girl... so it might not work out for them either..
I'm not sure if they still sell this stuff, but it really is a great product. I got it way too light for my skin tone, however it blends in really well. covers up blemishes and under eye circles like a charm. The only disadvantage is that it doesn't last long. (on my face)
I've had the same bottle for over a year now though. :p
