This is definitely the best concealer I've used so far!
It hides redness pretty well, and it blends easily.
As for size reduction in blemishes, I have noticed that it helps a VERY little bit, but nothing miraculous...I put some of this onto the top of my hand, and then just use my fingertip to apply to my face and blend..although I plan on buying a concealer brush for better and quicker application. Even though it cost a bit more than I usually spend on makeup (especially concealers), that $9 was worth it!!! :D
UPDATE: WRONG wrong color for me!!! In better light, I saw that it was so flippin noticeable that I was wearing concealer via bringing attention to the places I was trying to camoflauge! uggh I gave this to my mom becasue she has darker skin than me...and I got this in light-medium!?
I've gone through 3 packages of this stuff, which says how much I love this product. It has great coverage, and a little goes a long way. What attracted me to this product was the 0.5% of salicylic acid. Okay, so it isn't that much, but better than nothing right? For reference, I got this in fair medium, and it is the perfect shade for my skin tone. I found that using a small concealer brush does the job the best. I use a small concealer brush from the Coastal Scents travel brush kit. I use this concealer to help conceal acne scars. As for helping make pimples smaller, I don't think it does the job. Infact, I think it makes the pimple bigger. However, I do notice that it helps prevent pimples. Before using this, I got a lot of pimples around my upper lip area, and now I hardly ever have any pimples there. I think I'd prefer if the concealer was in a pump. The doe foot shaped wand makes it hard to get to all the product on the bottom, I find. But really, it's a great product that's worth buying.
This concealer is nice. I do reallyy like this for my lids and under my eyes! but it does not work good for my blemishes and my acne scaring! plus the colour selection is really bad! I'm not sure if I would buy it again.
good colors & blendable. i really like it & it seems to help clear my skin
LOVE. Absolutely perfect for everyday wear and concealing acne scars and current pimples.
i don't normally wear makeup everyday so this is the perfect solution for concealing my blemishes daily without having to wear foundation or sacrificing my skin with regular concealer.
EDIT: I wanted to add there are a few shades for this product and I got the lightest one. I think it's called fair/light. It's a tad lighter than my regular skin tone (NC15, revlon PhotoReady 002 vanilla, 020 mineral mousse) but it does the job wonderfully. I like how it's a little lighter because it does cover it better...
The one thing is the applicator. It's just like a regular lipgloss so I end up using my fingers. I would use a brush but the brush seems to disperse the product and I end up with concealer everywhere but the blemish.
I'm glad I got 2 at the BOGO offer they had a few weeks back, and I'll have enough for a long time.
I love this stuff. Granted my skin doesn't break out as much as it did in my teens so I am not using it that often but when I do it seems that by the next day the breakout has drastically improved. Covers nicely and really does stay on through work and even after the gym. It's on the thicker side so I found that all I need is a dab....thus has lasted a long time. Good stuff!
This is probably the best drugstore concealer I have ever used. It was the small amount of salicylic acid that caught my attention, but the concentration is actually negligible in terms of healing acne. At least it didn't break me out, so I guess I mainly used it for prevention. I used medium and it matched my skin tone perfectly. I like the blendibility, and when my skin is behaving, I can get away with just using concealer and moisturizer. The consistency is smooth so it works well for the under eye, but I find that the coverage isn't up to par for blemish coverage. I don't think it's think enough for that. It'll last a good half of the day before it starts fading away, but that's probably because my skin is oily. Overall good foundation if you're already blessed with good skin. It'll be enough to even it out without looking cakey.
I've been using this concealer for a couple of weeks. I like that it has salicylic acid in it to help treat blemishes while you wear it. I try to prevent cross contamination so I put it on my hand and then apply it to my face with a brush. It's not amazing but it does the job. Not as good as Clinique Advanced concealer but I'll use it until it's gone. I may repurchase. I'll continue to use it and see if I'm still happy with it as it runs out.
I found this concealer is great for my acne. I have very bad skin with many big pimples, and, so far, this is one of the best drugstore conclealers I have ever used (I tried many of them). My tip is that your skin must be very moisturized before application of this concealer and you should be very quick with blending because it dries up on skin very quickly. I use this with my Colorstay foundation and it gives me the best results together. But be carefull, it might look cakey if you use much product. The smell is not very pleasant, smells like some kind of medicine. Maybe because of the salycilic acid in it. Overall, a great concealer, at least for my acne-prone skin.
it covers well, and does stay but cant really cover huge pimples. This is gos for slight discoloration or small pimples. If you put to much it can look cakey but its good
