When I need to cover up a big red pimple, I reach for this. However, for everyday use and especially under my eyes, I don't need this kind of serious coverage. Instead, I need something more moisturizing and with better blendability. The tube does look "smashing," but I think the stick format and packaging is why it is- has to be- so dry and so hard.
Okay, I bought this a little while ago. I have KP on my cheeks and it's red.. makes people think i'm flushed all the time... and i wanted something to cover it up. I've been searching for coverage in foundation, however nothing is really working. I was all over Ulta for maybe an hour putting on random foundations (literally all that i could test lol) and nothing was really putting my redness in its place. i decided to go around for a concealer. This is one i could try on and i was so pleasantly surprised with it! It looked lighter than my skin, but somehow it faded into it, while covering all my flaws. I put it under my eyes too and it went on well. The packaging is very, very nice. The price (for me) is a little steep $18 bucks- but if it works, its worth it. It was very nice on my skin (i'm not acne prone, nor oily, just a little dry) and smoothed on very nicely. I applied right from the stick to my skin. I can't rave enough! It covered my red! yayyyyy!!
I was extremely disappointed in this product. My skin is extremely oily and blemish prone, and I have a lot of red marks and scars to cover, as well as whiteheads. This concealer didn't really cover anything at all- it was hard and traveled to easily when I tried to blend. I've tried way better stick concealers for a fourth of the price. I think I will be sticking to my HG concealer- TheBalm's Time Balm. The packaging was pretty and nice, but for 16 dollars, I prefer substance over style.
WOW. This stuff totally blew me away. Application is sorta tricky but once its on and set...youre good to go ALL DAY AND NIGHT! Resists sweat, oiliness (I blot CONSTANTLY...at least once every hour)! Looks GORGEOUS on and the packaging just couldn't be better--portable, sanitary, chic. LOVE this stuff! Better than MAC Studio finish, better than Make Up Forever's Full Cover! FANTAZZZTICCCC
Great packaging got it on sale at a great website, colour is fair porcelain, i am asianand kinda light skinned, but this was waaaay white!!! and it was kinda hard, as in the texture, and didnt really cover htat much. Tried other ones for half the price, in pharmacies that were better...but it looks sooo nice in your make up bag!!!
I bought this concealer cause I wanted to try something different as I was running out of my Clinique concealer. I thought, 'hey it wouldn't hurt to give this little fella a try.' The shade that the SA recommended me was a little too light for my facial skin tone. The stick I think was too big cause I only need to cover small areas. It didn't do a good job of covering either. A little disappointed, so I took it back to Sephora. continued >>
I love this! I think I've found my new HG.
This concealer lasts much longer than any other cream concealer I've ever tried (and I've tried TONS and nothing had the staying power I was looking for). The consistancy is really nice and smooth - goes on beautifully. The coverage is medium to heavy, which is what I need.
By the end of the day, my face looks as fresh and nice as it did in the morning.
this is my favortie concealer right now. i love the feel, nice and creamy and doesn't sit in the lines under my eyes. it gives a full coverage without looking caked on. the stick form is awesome, i hate ones in a pot the i get stuck under my nails when i try and dig it out. smashbox has a wide range of colors so pretty much everyone should be able to find one that works for them. A+ concealer everyone could use one of these in their makeup collection.
The only concealer that will cover my under eye circles.
im a law student and always lack sleep. my ultimate problem is covering my undereye dark circles and this concealer is a genie! I use 05. ;) for perfect effect, brush a loose powder after.
Edit: When I was halfway through, the thing just broke. So what a waste.
