I so wish this were a better product. I'm a MAC NC20 (light warm-toned) and got this in Light Ivory. I need concealer to cover up acne scars, redness, and undereye circles. This concealer almost does the job. It's incredibly concentrated, a tiny bit goes a long way (a huge plus in my book). It's very yellow toned which zaps the red and brown right outta my acne-related problem areas. I also really like the sanitary squeeze tube packaging, and the price isn't bad (not expensive, not dirt cheap). So, here are the reasons why I only gave it two lippies. This concealer's yellow tone makes it fab for everything but undereye circles. It SUCKS at undereye circles. It just looks like yellow smudge. Not good. It also gets flaky on some areas on my face, which unfortunately makes it super obvious up close that I'm wearing a heavy dose of concealer. I would repurchase this if MK came out with a creamier formulation, with the understanding that I need a totally separate undereye concealer. Otherwise, I have a total wandering eye. I may come back to it if I don't find anything else that zaps red quite like this one.
I purchased this product in the medium shade this past weekend. Just like every other concealer I have purchased, from high end to low, it is just "ok". The color is a little light on me, but the next shade darker is too dark. It has a tendency to creep into the small lines around my eyes. I hate to say this, but I am never satisfied with any concealer that I have tried. I believe that there is NO MIRACLE CURE! The search continues ...
I've tried quite a few concealers- some in a tube like this, and some in a variety of other forms, and this one is a winner! It goes on smoothly, blends great, and the coverage is perfect. It never looks chalky, and doesn't accentuate wrinkles when used around the eyes. Covers dark circles great & makes your eyes look brighter!
My HG concealer!! A little goes a long way so you can use this sparingly.Its nice and creamy and seriously provides full coverage.Its never cakey either....my lil tube has lasted me a long time and once I'm out I'll be repurchasing.
Best concealers on the market. I've battled with some acne ever since I was in grade school. This covers blemishes heights above any product I've ever tried.
I thought mineral makeup was so flawless when it came to covering up flaws, but when my face started acting up, I knew I had to whip out the Mary Kay and use it underneath the mineral makeup. If your application is right, this can make a horrible face look flawless. The only reason I stopped using it for a little while was because I stopped using any liquid or creme face products - only powder. If you are okay with using a cream concealer, I really urge you to try this. It was a lifesaver during my high school years for me and many of my friends with similar complexion problems.
My sister was a Mary Kay Consultant for years and I never was really into their products, EXCEPT for this one. I think it's less than $10 a tube and lasted months.
Mary Kay concealers are the best I've found. They have so much colour pigment in them that you only need the tiniest amount to cover spots and dark circles.
They are not the driest of concealers so if you prefere the texture of a solid stick this probably isn't for you. They are also on the yellow side, so they're not so good if you have a pinky complexion (even the ivory one).
It comes in a tube and I squeeze the smallest amount possible onto the back of my hand before applying it with a brush. It just covers everything and I've never found anything that does that before.
Great concealer! A little goes a long way. I have an olive complexion so I'm prone to dark circles under my eyes. It only takes one little dab for each eye. Dabbing it on works it into my skin better than wiping it on. It lasts all day too! It blends well with my makeup too. I've had the same tube for almost a year and I'm just now getting to the end, and I use it almost everyday.
Great product. I have used it on and off again for years and now the love affair is back on. Its wonderful for concealing red blotchy areas post acne and good for around the eyes. It doesn't look cakey and it covers sooo well. USE THIS SPARINGLY!!! It is so densely pigmented that you only need a tiny bit to get great coverage and it's completely buildable. It really doesn't come in too many colors though which could be a problem for some but you can always get two colors and match your skin pretty closely. I use Ivory and its pretty neutral I'd say leaning more towards those with yellow pigments in their skin.
Conceals and Blends! Often I find concealers that actually blend leave patches and you can tell you've put concealer there and ones that blend into the skin dont conceal well. This one melts into the skin while concealing redness, dark circles and basically any skin problem imaginable and when topped with foundation skin is flawless. This is a concealer I can count on because 8/10 are complete crap! I have very large eyes and due to genetics I am blessed with dark eye circles and the occasional break out usually on my chin or forhead. This concealer I can count on to actually conceal both acne and dark circles, since most concealers dont work for me this almost has HG status because I need a concealer in my daily routine. At 12.50 its average price. It comes in a 14 gram tube which is more than many concealers that cost more.
Out of all the concealers I've tried, this one is the best concealer possible. I use it in light bronze and I have the worst oily skin possible.
Light bronze is about perfect for my skintone, sometimes if the consistency was right, I've thought of wearing this as an overall foundation because it matches my dark, olive skin to a T. But the consistency isn't right so I simply use it as a concealer.
It has some unbelievable staying power and I can easily use this under a tinted moisturizer and other sheer foundations without it looking like a patch of something under it.
Its the best and its cheap. I've only liked Shiseido and Mary Kay products.
