...Have no idea why this product is rated so highly. I personally found the colors really bad (I'm a NC20), the texture weird (very dry cream), and the coverage not that good. It also didn't look natural under my eyes and broke me out when I used it on my face. Absolutely horrible product. Hate that it cost me $10 and now I can't even use it. Too bad I can't just return it back to Target. :(
What a great product! Before, I was religiously going back to Maybelline's Age Rewind Double Face Protector, it blended easily and went on smooth with medium coverage. Once I ran out I happended to run across someone's makeup tutorial online while looking for other makeup reviews and Sonia's concealer kit was highly recommended. I needed more coverage under my eyes and thought I'd give it a try-I'm glad I did! This kit provides great coverage, I like that it has multiple color choices and a setting powder. I don't plan on going back to anything else! I also greatly appreciate the fact that Sonia Kashuk products DO NOT test on animals and are affordable! My only complaint is that I'd like to be able to find these products at my local drugstore as well and not just at Target.
Wow do I love this concealer! This the first concealer I've ever owned. I decided to get it based on price and reviews - both good from what I researched. So far I've only used the darker of the 2 concealers. It blends so well and goes with my skin perfectly! I think it makes me look younger and polished. I kinda wish the whole pack was just that color :)
This is a medium coverage. Sadly for me I need full. When I try to layer it for full coverage I get the coverage but a lot of dryness and caking. When i layer it to that extent it covers my dark circles pretty well at certain angles but if my head is tilted down even somewhat you can still see them heavily. Also it dries out extremely quickly and I cannot counteract the dryness at all! For someone who needs medium to light coverage it will be creamy and cover you well. Past that its dry and cakey and only covers so much. I also waste a lot or product because my skin is only one shade not 3.SO sad that it is very creamy at first,but after maybe two weeks it is so dry and just extremely cakey.Boo!
I was a big fan of this product at first. I use the darked of the concealers to do my undereyes and then used the translucent powder over it. Didn't move at all! The green corrector was for my redness and works miracles! I'm a big fan of the corrector and def would re-purchase for the corrector.
It was a decent concealer. Didnt do as great as I thought it would. Made my skin very dry. I might buy it again, just to try it out, but I would save your money (:
Love this product! I like how they changed the packaging to not include the little brushes on the bottom because most people don't use them anyway. This concealer does wonders because it comes with three different shades which you can mix to create the perfect match with your skin tone and also comes with a setting powder. Would definitely purchase again.
I got this as part of a swap and I love it. I havent decided if its HG status yet but its close. I wear this over my w 'n' w tinted moisturizer and use the corrector which in the palette i have is yellow and some of the lighter concealer. it looked good but you could really tell the difference when you set it with the powder. the heat index today is 110 and here i am 4 hours later (Working in an office) and it hasnt moved or changed colors. no shine. just lovely undereye coverage. i would buy this again.
I have pretty dark hereditary black circles under my eyes, and this concealer kit is the best I've found so far!
Previously I'd used Maybelline's color stay 24hr concealer, but the coverage that the Sonia Kashuk Hidden Agenda Concealer kit offers is much much better! I was puzzled at first because it's only available in one shade, but it probably has to do with the fact that you can mix the concealer shades together. Luckily, the shades all bode well with my olive skin--the green-ish shade for my blemishes, and the red, natural toned, and powder for my undereye area (depending on your circles, certain combinations may be better than others)
I definitely suggest getting a kit, but I'd also keep in mind that it may not work with all skin tones and that, depending on your skin type and the climate you live in, it may be necessary to moisturize first before using it (especially under the eyes!)
*EDIT: though this concealer kit is still one of my HG items I finish it off with a neutral concealer for everyday use because alone it's a bit too light for my skin. It's still a good concealer kit, and after using it for 4 months I highly recommend it--but it might be better for some skin tones than others.
I purchased this product after all of the good reviews here, but sadly it just didn't work for me. I love the fact that the green in it isn't that disgustingly difficult to cover mint green that most green concealers are. It really neutralized the redness of the blemishes that i have, and for that I am thankful. However, I think it is ridiculous that there is only one combination of colors. This might match my skin in the winter, but even the darkest shade in the palette was too light for the summer. I tried fixing the problem by covering with foundation, and it just rubbed off. Also, it refused to set with my Dream Matte Powder, leaving my skin looking uneven and I could see the lighter spots where I had applied the concealer. I did like the coverage, and the staying power, I just wish it came in a darker color. The packaging is adorable, and there is quite a bit of product and a little goes a long way, so for someone who was able to use it effectively, it lasts a long time.
