Great coverage, great under makeup, just put a small amount and blend the outside. I use this under makeup in natural light and follow with whatever makeup I decide to use. If it's a scab or a really dark scar, I may touch up, but I think that's just from when I put the foundation on , it takes some off. I touch up with Mary Kay beigh concealer, because it matches my skin perfectly. I will buy it over and over :-)
wayyyy too thick and cakey on my face. If you need heavy coverage this is for you. I have somewhat of a yellowish skintone and this in "natural light" was way too light for me. definitely not suitable for asian skintypes.
I love some of my phys. Formula blushes and bronzers because they caused no breakouts but this caused me to break out horribly (maybe I'm allergic to one of it's ingredients). I broke out even where I dont tend to break out :( coverage is decent but it is OBVIOUS that ur wearing make up. No matter how much I tried to blend in, just didn't do. guy came up and commented on my makeup, never before had anyone been able to tell I wear makeup. I'm on my iPhone sorry if I mispelled
This is a so-so product. I was expecting it to be great based on the raves here. But alas, the coverage wasn't all that it claimed. My Maybelline Age Rewind gave better coverage than this. Also, it was VERY drying and difficult to blend. My skin tone is NW25-30, and Natural Light was a pretty good match, although it may appear too light if not blended in correctly.
Wow, it's been almost a year since I purchased this concealer. It's been sitting under my sink, with all the other crap I hated. Since the weather's been getting a lot warmer lately, my maybelline concealers crease and turn me into a greaseball, so i decided to try this out again. NOTE: how you apply this determines how it'll look in the end. You need a TINY, like, microscopic, amount on your ring finger then you take your other ring finger and rub them together, this makes the heat from your fingers melt the product and make it easier to blend, then pat wherever you need covering. This lasts all day with minimal creasing and is absolutley amazing, especially for oily skin.
I wasn't loving the concealer that I'd been using, so I decided to try a new one. I picked this up at Ulta for about $7. It has great coverage and lasts all day. The color selection is slim, but it seems like they could cover wide varieties of color because they blend in nicely. A little goes a very long way with this concealer. I use a very little amount for all my acne/undereye circles. Great coverage, lasts long, blends pretty easily. You also get a ton of concealer for the price. This is my favorite concealer.
I did alot of research before I buy products from drug stores. CVS recently has a 40 percent off sale this week and I had a 5 dollar coupon so I got this for less then a dollar. This is VERY thick. It covers very nicely but a little goes a long way. If you put too much it might be a little cakey. Overall I would definitely pick up another one if I run out.
HG! Finally, a drugstore concealer that delivers coverage! Such a life-saver. You only need a little bit each time you use it. I bought this stuff last summer, and I still have a lot left. It's highly concentrated, so application is quick (which is good because I hate being late due to having to apply layer after layer of weak concealer). The fair light is perfect for my pale skin tone that gets occasional red blemishes. It covers those wonderfully and stays put. I wore this stuff to the beach, got in the waves and everything, and I didn't even need to touch up. I also bike to my classes in hot hot Florida, and the sweat doesn't even make it budge. Mind you, I usually put pressed powder over this stuff, so that might account for the staying power. I'm also pretty sure that the rx doesn't have oil in it. It doesn't clog my pores at all, phew! I want to get the green color now. I have tried a lot of high-end concealers, and this one is the best for me. I'm so glad, because it's cheap! That's important for a college student. I would not recommend using this concealer for the undereye area though. It tends to crease there due to the way it dries, and it makes even the finest lines noticable. I usually use Benefit's Erase Paste for undereye circles. Also, as soon as you put it on your skin, blend! It dries very quickly. I usually use a tiny paint brush that I have adapted as a concealer brush to cover what wasn't covered by blending with my fingertips. Try this stuff if you can find the right color. Good luck!
I'm on the fence for this item.
Good thing about it:
+Good coverage, especially for my under eyes dark circles.
+Good match to my skin tone with pdt shade in soft yellow (NC25-NC30
+hygienic packaging in squeeze tube, easy to control amount dispense
-the product tends to separate, if i didn't shake well before squeezing, I'll get all the oil out instead of the product. Gross!
-dry formula, even for my oily skin. End up cakey undereyes.
-Hard to blend due to dry formula
-looks unnatural when attempted to touch up during midst of the day
because it couldn't last me whole day which is an important factor for me, I don't see myself repurchasing it.
For reference, I am Asian who is NC20-25 depending on the season.
I am a concealer junkie and I have strong yellow undertones, so I'm always on a lookout for a good concealer to cover up my VERY dark undereye circles and blemishes/hyperpigmentation. I purchased this in the color Soft Yellow, which looks fine when first squeezed out but looks very whitish-yellow when blended in. Definitely not something I would use over foundation, but it was very good coverage since it's thick. This would work better for blemishes/spots since this is quite drying on the undereyes and can look cakey. This also makes an EXCELLENT corrector to make your foundations more yellow-toned, since I tend to have issues having foundation match my very strong yellow undertones.
Make sure to shake the tube before use, since it can separate a little bit. I purchased this during a CVS 75% off clearance sale, so it was very good at the sale price but might not be worth it as full retail price. If it doesn't work as a concealer, this is a must-have corrector for those with yellow undertones!
I have found this to be a drugstore alternative to Makeup Forever's full cover concealer. It stays on throughout the day and covers everything. The only problem is that it doesn't come in a wide range of colors.
