I have been using this product for about 6-7 years and I highly doubt I will ever stop! There are a few things about it that I don't love, but the pros definitely outweigh the cons.
I use concealer to hide my dark under eye circles. I've never really had a big problem with acne, but it does a good job of concealing little pimples, too. The product is nice and thick, which is great if you're hiding under eye circles, birthmarks or scars because you don't have to put on layers of it (like with most concealers I've tried in the past). I also love how long it lasts. 1 tube usually lasts me about 4 months if I'm using it everyday (I keep an extra at my office and in my car just in case!). I also love that I don't need to seal it with a powder if I'm on the run. Most of the time I get all-day coverage unless it's hotttt (I live in the south), but I usually need to do touch up if I am going out at night.
The few things I don't love aren't a big deal to me. It dries up quickly. So, you need to be ready to blend when you put it on your face. If you leave the cap off one day, you may have a hard time getting the product out of the tube the next. The other problem with the thickness is that if you need it to spread a little thinner (like to cover a bruise or a burn...I sound really clumsy) this product doesn't do the trick. I may try mixing it with a liquid foundation next time I need it a little thinner.
Overall, a fantastic product. It's usually only about $6 a tube. CVS often puts their physician's formula on BOGO or BOGO1/2, which is fantastic. It doesn't dry out in the tube EVER...I once found a tube that had to be at least 2 years old and the product was still the same consistency.
I was looking for a good coverage concealer from the drugstore and decided to do some research. I found reviews for this concealer in the MUA top picks and decided to try it out. I have horrible dark circles that never goes away. This concealer has great coverage, but it dries up so fast that I don't even have the chance to blend it! So before I use it everyday, I make sure to use a very moisturizing eye cream under my eyes, and it worked for me. Only four stars because of the limited color selection. For reference, i am nc 30-35, and the color in natural light (which is the darkest shade they have) is pretty light on my skin, so i have to apply a darker foundation over it so that it doesn't look weird.
Amazing amazing amazing concealer. Conceals my undereye circles like a dream, and I am both German and Irish and have TERRIBLE undereye circles that extend to at least half-way down my nose. I would suggest using this UNDER powder or foundation, then using a very little bit over if really necessary. Great pigment. Lasts all day. A little really does go a long way on blemishes/scars and under the eyes. I have such bad acne scarring and post-acne red marks and this conceals them ALL. I only wear liquid foundation now for special occasions because I broke out so bad thanks to Revlon's Colorstay and when I pair this with my physicians formula healthy wear powder foundation it gives me such a beautiful, healthy, and natural look - sometimes even I don't think I'm wearing makeup. I am tremendously impressed with this, and it will last you a long time. You are really getting what you pay for, and look for sales at rite-aid or any other drugstore - I got mine for free when I bought a PF powder.
The only huge downside with this, along with every other PF product, is that they don't have a full range of shades. I hope one day they fix this because PF should be available to any one of any skin tone.
i got this in the yellow and it covers well and looks nice under my foundation. its not too thick and isnt cakey either
Love this concealer - I've been using it for a few years now, switched from Estee Lauder Double Wear & frankly this covers much better. I used to have horrible acne & I have scarring & dark spots that are completely covered with this concealer!
The only thing I don't like is that you really have to wear foundation because it doesn't blend into bare skin very well. In the bathroom mirror, it seems like a good match, but then when you get into natural sunlight it looks splotchy. Maybe with a tinted moisturizer it would blend, never tried that... continued >>
Knockoff of Amazing concealer... This is an excellent drugstore concealer. You will only need a tiny pin-head sized amount, so the tube will last forever. It can be drying in the winter months, but a good moisturizer will take care of that. I use it undereye, and sometimes a dab on my face if I don't feel like wearing makeup. It blends right in and looks very natural- you can't even see it on my face. I use fair-light and it's a perfect match for me.
After reading some reviews on here, I went out and bought a tube of this at my local Fred Meyers for like $8. I agree with everyone else, the color selection is very limited. My skin is pretty fair with pink undertones and I have hereditary under-eye circles that are EXTREMELY purple and noticeable. People always ask me if I'm tired because they make me look beat up.
I bought this in Natural light and it blends in w/o looking clown-ish. I have to say it is a fabulous concealer. At first, it was a little too dry when I applied it alone but I realized it takes a good eye cream or moisturizer underneath for it to work well. It covers over areas really well too. I have a red pimple on my chin and this covered it without looking cakey. The only con that I found about it was the packaging. The product got all over the lid after the first time I opened it and it got pretty messy. Overall, I will re-purchase if it continues to do the work.
BEST concealer I've ever used--it lasts forever and covers as good as I imagine dermablend or any other highly pigmented concealer would--but at a fraction of the price! It lasts forever because a little dab will truly do ya'. The Fair Light shade is perfect for me and I'm very fair skinned. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
I love this concealer! I just bought it today and honestly, it works MUCH better than many high brand concealers for only 8 dollars! 8 bucks is a little expensive for a drugstore brand but I compared it to buying a clinique concealer (this is much better) or benefit ect. much more expensive. This concealer blends pretty well (put it under powder to blend best) is nice a thick and works great! only down side is it comes in only two skin tones. (other then the green). luckily the light looks fine on me! :D
This stuff is VERY impressive for a drugstore concealer. It's definitely up there, coverage wise, with some of the more pricey concealers like MUFE full cover. I was lucky enough to find my color match...not perfect, but pretty darn good considering this only comes in TWO shades!...in fair light (I was previously using MAC studio finish concealer in NW20 and this is almost exactly the same color, the MAC is just slighlty more pink than this stuff). My favorite things about this concealer are that it stays put ALL DAY, and it doesn't change color/turn orange by mid day (this happens to me with almost every concealer, foundation, ect because I have very oily skin). It covers acne scars very well without caking if you have to layer it on in some spots. I like it for my under eye area as well (again, it doesn't cake). I paid $8.99 for this at CVS, which I thought was pretty expensive for a drugstore concealer at the time, but now I think it was worth every penny. I almost wanted to take off a lippie for the ridiculously skimpy color selection, but the coverage and staying power are just too good not to give this stuff a 5!
