ill make this short and sweet. it makes my under-eye area look AMAZING!! what i do is put a few swipes on, fan it with my hands so it gets a little tacky then blend in. then do one more coat. makes eys look bright and like i've slept for days. adore this stuff <3 continued >>
It has decent coverage and I really like it as a highlighter. I have it in fair/light, which more or less fits me, I could have taken a darker one. Anyway, I've been suffering from dark circles, so this really helps with those. And it's very cheap, dare I say, the cheapest at the drugstore. $6.20 is a small price to pay for such a good concealer.
I have been suffering from major dark circles lately.. Due to work and stress etc. and I can't seem to get rid of them. I did use the Garnier Tinted Eye roll on however I didn't enjoy the coverage or how it looked under my eyes until I saw this and I tried it on i store and it did a good job! I loooove it so much. I generally dont use this product anywhere else on my skin except as a highlight on my nose and cheekbones. The coverage is medium. It doesn't cover my dark circles completely but you can hardly see them, i then use the garnier eye roll on, on the ring of my dark circles and those bad boys are gone! I love it so much. The formula is great, doesn't crease or cake up or even sit into my fine line under my eyes. The finish is great and looks really natural and lasts for least 8 hours xD i cannot express my satisfaction for this product, the only downside is the packaging and the coverage but otherwise amazing!
i honestly dont understand why this gets good reviews! Its terrible.. even for the price!
I laugh every time I put this on, because the worst part about it is ironically the colour match. I bought the second lightest shade, which looked fine in the store and I didn't have many other options so i bought it. It oxidises on the skin and looks orange and dark around my blemishes.. Its almost like it looks worse when i have it on for a while. My foundation usually evens that stuff out, but this brought orange colour seems to show through anything. Worst part about it is the coverage- i don't find it gives any coverage at all and if you try to build it, it balls up and falls off the face. The packaging is completely useless and impractical, and for the amount you get and the low quality of the product, its not even worth it.
Ive tried quite a few other drug store concealers, and this is the worst.
Let's start with the price-dirt cheap! About $5. Doesn't get a whole lot cheaper than that. So if you are on the fence about this product-I assure you in my opinion it is worth the $5 investment. I am about NW25 and purchased shade 335 (light medium). It is a good match for my skintone. The applicator is ghastly-a squeeze tube with a brush that squeezes out too much product. I insert a small concealer brush and use that instead. This gives great coverage, spreads/blends easily and does not cake or slide off. I would definitely recommend this product and repurchase. The difficulty as with most drugstore items is the lack of testers makes it a guessing game which shade to use. I luckily guessed right. That said, I use this only for under eye and I do not have "major" under eye issues, just some light circles/shadows. So if you are looking for more serious coverage, or to use as a face concealer-your mileage may vary.
Ok, so I actually didn't buy this, but I did try it on at Winners. I thought that the coverage was minimal, until I found my colour. At that point though, my eyes began to water so I would say the quality isn't the best. Coverage is ok though, so if you don't want to spend too much on concealer this is good. If not, I would go for a something a little pricier.
coverage=barely. will not repurchase.
NC25 girls- Fair Light is the best match in this shade for us. I have only seen this in 5 shades at my ds: Fair, Fair Light, Light, Light Medium & Medium. I see alot of girls referring to Ivory, Classic Beige, Soft beige etc here on MUA and I'm not sure which countries these are sold at or if their in reference to foundation shades because NO ds/ulta in the US has these shades for this product (I double checked online as well). Anyways, I picked up 2:
-Fair Light-warm yellow undertones
-Light-cool pink undertones
I normally see myself using Light-Medium shades but this one was veryy dark like NC35-40 from the tube so I didn't bother. Its a classic tube with the bristles at the end that you have to squeeze to get a tiny bit out. Its very opaque and creamy, not runny or oily like others I have tried with this packaging that go on uneven and greasy. Not with this one its a even, soft natural look. IMO if your NC25 & are looking for peachy salmony brightening undereye concealer go with Light, but you'll have to set it with a yellow powder or foundation because its veryyy pink, unless you have cool undertones already & are NW25.
I use my Coastal Scents bright eyed in Ivory underneath with Laura Mercier secret brightening powder on top so don't need a brightening effect, I just need good coverage. I actually prefer the yellow tone in the Light because I can apply it to acne/scars & dust powder on top and use it as a foundation! The drop I get from 1 squeeze can do both undereyes or half face if used as foundation, so a little goes a longg way. I don't find it exaggerating fine lines or getting blotchy at the end of the day, its truly one of the best I've tried. For $6 I lovee this stuff!
This is a good concealer. Not extraordinary but it gets the job done. Its really good for covering up dark circles but not enough coverage for covering acne spots. The shade selection isn't very good either, but my skin is light so thats not too bad for me personally. I'll buy this again, but only for my under eye circles..
Thanks to MUA I found another HG! I use this to cover up the blemishes/scars on my face and it works wonders! I then put my coty translucent powder all over and my skin looks flawless! You can't beat $6 for a great concealer! I love the consistency and it lasts all day. I know a lot of people complain about the brush but I haven't had any problems, I actually sort of like it! Hope they never stop making this!!
