I quite like this for blemishes. I have also used it for under the eyes, but I found other concealers that were better for that purpose. I have quite veiny(?) eyelids, and i like to use this to even out the skin there. I hate the packaging. It leaks and the product gets everywhere. The packaging is like a bad lip gloss packaging really. But it is matte, covers blemishes and has no odour. An ok product for me.
Yet again, my naive nature got me chucking away another Maybelline product. I heard some great positive review Wayne from gossmakeupartist and GlamLifeGuru about this concealer. I first bought on a note that I though it will be a good face brightener, but obviously it wasn't. For me, it wasn't ever thick enough to conceal any imperfection, and I'm a HUGE light to medium coverage concealer junkie. If this even allows my blackheads and redness to shine through, then don't even think that this is going to conceal dark circles. The concealer was quite oil based and emollient, the creamy texture wouldn't hold and stay on my combo/oily/ blemish-prone skin. I HATE pink-based concealer, because T-zone always seem to look oily and flush with redness, having a pink-based concealer is just not going to help, instead it makes it worse. As a concealer, it didn't live up the hype, however I was determined to attempt to make it right as a face brightener.
As reference: I'm a NC20 with combo/oily/ blemish-prone and some dryness on my nose. I purchased my shade in #15 Fair
As a face brightener:
With the concealer wand, I draw a line down to my nose from the eye duct, and following my cheekbone, I draw a line from my nose to my temple. I learnt this amazing method from gossmakeupartist, to help brighten my face. After I finished mapping out my concealer on my face, with my clean fingers, I blend out the concealer. Then I set the concealer with a good translucent powder to help set the creamy consistency. Went to school with the makeup on and it didn't even stay for 2 hours or more. What a shame!

Thanks for reading my review :)
this is not the best concealer I've tried. then again, not the worst. but i would not buy again because it gets very cakey and just looks so obvious on the skin. it wasn't thay expensive so I'm not thay worried. but i will probably only use it if I'm in a hurry and need something quick in my purse incase a pimple pops up! it sucks as undereye concealer though. creases like a mofo!! it comes with a lot of product so i will probably not be able to use it up before its trashed.
When it comes to Make-up I'm very Picky and So far I've found the Perfect Foundation, Perfect Blush, So on and So forth. All that was missing was the perfect Concealer and Honestly it's been a Mission to find THE one (A lot like my Love life) But I guess the God's heard my Cries because I found the One.
I bought this concealer in the shade 25 Medium and it does absolutely everything , it conceals my Dark Circles, Acne scars, it truly does it all. It doesn't wear off easily which is crucial especially During the summer. After I ran out I tested other ones out from NYX and Elf (2 Types); None of them did what this one did which confirmed that this is the perfect Concealer, at least to me. I've already recommended it to a couple of my Girlfriends and they absolutely love it. I definitely recommend this product, test it out and if it works for you, then it's the One!
This concealer had okay coverage and wore off easily but the worst part is it made my under eye area burn like crazy! That has never happened before using this concealer. I returned it immediately.
I love this concealer! I've been using this for about 6 months now and I will be continuing to use it. It doesn't crease and it is creamy. I have dry under eyes and this works out well for that.
This product is great =) the consistency is very easy to apply and blend but I would not reccomend it to someone who has really bad under eye dark circles. I have deep dark circles and it doesn't cover them up completely but it works really well as an under eye brightener! And for the price of six dollars, you can't go wrong ;) it'll last you months!
I bought this on a whim - I love the Revlon Photoready concealer, but this was cheaper and I was tempted! Unfortunately I regret buying this. I remember Maybelline had awful colour shades for pale skin when I used to wear their foundations years ago..well that hasn't changed. The lightest colour is ORANGE on me. Ugh.
The packaging is sleek and I like it. The coverage is good I suppose..but kind of cakey on blemishes. Ok for undereyes though.
Just can't use really due to the shade.
been on the hunt for the "perfect" concealer. So far this is the best I've found. It has decent coverage, isn't overly drying but doesn't cause my eye makeup to smear. It's much better than a lot of the HE concealers I've tried.
The consistency is really thin and runny but creamy at the same time. The color range is okay but the medium definitely matches my normal skin tone! The coverage is very light so I like to layer this over a brightening and heavier coverage concealer. I wouldn't recommend this for severe dark circles, maybe for people who need a slight fix. I think it is great over a heavy concealer!
