its pretty good for covering up a few blimshes but it gets kind of drying throught out the day
Overall was a meh. I liked the 'lip gloss' packaging; I feel like other concealer packagings don't work as well. It's on a little stick, and the coverage was about a 4/5. Not too thick, not too runny, but it could have covered a bit more. I put it on a few minutes ago so the 'Blemish Healing' part won't be noticeable yet, but it was an okay product.
I was undecided between whether I should I give this concealer a 4 or a 5, and ultimately settled on 5. To be honest, I would give this a 4.5 if I could, mainly because the concealer can be a bit drying if you're not wearing it over a moisturizing enough face lotion or cream. BUT, the coverage is so amazing and I like how it doesn't make my zits worse, thus giving them a chance to heal. Also, it has 1% salicylic acid, but is totally safe to wear on the under-eye areas without stinging them. Did I mention how amazing the coverage is?
To avoid dryness or over-application, don't apply the wand directly to your face. Instead, put a very small dab on your finger tip and pat on to your skin instead.
I'm on my second tube of this, the first tube actually lasted me for almost over a full year. There's only three shades available, and I'm using the light shade, it blends into my skin tone pretty well. I'm not sure if it actually heals blemishes or anything, but I only dab some onto the red spots on my space in hopes that they don't stand out so much. I find it hard to put liquid make up on afterwards though, as in when I put on my make up I think I end up rubbing the concealer off. I can't put it on after my foundation though, because they it noticeably stands out.
What I end up doing, on 'light' make up days, is dab this on over problem spots, then brush some light coverage powder on top and then I'm done. Spots are still visible if someone is close to you, but they aren't so obvious to anyone who isn't paying attention to them. I also like using it under my eyes to erase my dark eye circles. I'll most likely repurchase unless I find something better.
The staying power of this concealer is quite good. Perhaps that is why it is difficult to blend. I also find it hard to cover with powder. So the result is conspicuously light spots where i put the concealer. It does not particularly emphasize dry skin. It does not help my acne at all. It will crease under my eyes, because it is creamy/sticky. Overall, I use it occasionally to cover very red spots or spots that are oily so need the staying power of this concealer. I would hate to use it as my only concealer.
I like this product. I buy it in light to medium and it matches pretty well. I think it has a yellow undertone. I feel safe using it on blemishes b/c it is not waxy at all and it has salicylic acid in it. It is a bit drier than some other concealers, but it does blend out and I have had no problems with the consistency. It provides medium to full coverage. It doesn't heal blemishes, but it doesn't seem to make them worse either. I will continue to re-purchase this product.
P.S. Don't use this on your eyes :S Some people don;t take note of the salicylic acid in it.
This is more like a security blanket for me. I have a lot of scaring and a few breakouts. I wouldn't say this heals them, but it's pretty decent at concealing them and definitely doesn't seem to make it worse. It does stay put though and seems to match my olive yellow weird colored hispanic skin pretty well. I put it on whever needed, set it with mineral veil, and then use BE foundation over it. It doesn't completely cover, but it helps tone down redness and blends pretty well. I wish it was packaged differently and was maybe in a squeeze tube or a flip top or something becuase I feel like a lot gets wasted becuase you can't get it with the applicator. But other than that, I'll continue to purchase this unless I come across a better concealer...or my skin clears up completely!
I have been using this concealer for a while now. I needed a concealer that wasn't going to make my pimples worse. I didn't really care if it "healed" the blemish as this and my Clinique one claims it does, but I just wanted one that wasn't going to make my pimple worse. This one didn't! And that's why I like it. I don't think it really "healed" my pimple but it didn't make it worse, and that's what I was looking for in the first place. A little bit goes a long way and there isn't that much of a shade range. I have the one in "light" and it's too light for me. The forumla is creamy but it can get cakey if you don't work with it fast enough because it can dry fast. The doe foot applicator that this comes with is my main problem. DO NOT. I repeat; DO NOT use the doe foot applicator directly from the tube to your pimple and then back into the tube. You will end up getting the bacteria from the pimple on the applicator and back into the tube where it can still live because it's a wet mixture. And then everytime you use the concealer again, it might make your pimples worse because you have the bacteria from your last pimples in the mixture. So what I do is put a little bit from the applicator onto the back of my hand and then get a concealer brush and apply it that way. Also, this is not for use on the eyes. This is only supposed to be used on pimples, so using it as an undereye concealer is a no no. As a primer as some people are saying, idk, but I wouldn't risk it since it has Salicylic acid and your eye area is very delicate. So overall, pretty good concealer and I would re-purchase.
I use this when I need to conceal a spot. It has good coverage, and makes my spot smaller by the end of the day. Also, you only need a little bit because the formula is quite thick, so this lasts for quite some time. This also stays on all day, and is easily blendable.
This broke me out after the first two uses. It matched my skin color well but it caked over the blemishes i was trying to cover up. too bad i had high hopes for this sense it contained salicylic acid which is suppose to heal blemishes not make them worse!
