I think the trick to this concealer is that you have to apply it very, very lightly. If you squeeze out a big glob and try to work with it that way, the results won't be ideal. It's worked well for me in concealing darkness under my eyes and on blemishes. The trick is to only dispense a tiny amount and to lightly dab it on the areas you want to conceal. For me, it does last all day. Also, I can't feel it on my face and its never caused breakouts, which are huge pluses.
If the color selection was better and I could find the perfect match, I'd never look for another concealer. The only thing I dislike about it is that, with only two colors to choose from, neither are exactly right. Even so, I have repurchased this several times (in the "natural light" shade) and will likely purchase again.
Hello worst concealer I've ever used! -__-" I bought it due to all the good reviews I read from it, but I guess my skin just didn't like it. When I put it on, it becomes dry in like a matter of seconds. NOT BLENDABLE AT ALL. I tried blending it, and just results to making it look non-natural and just yuck. I hate how I wasted about 9 dollars for a product that is just blaah. Don't buy this. I repeat, DON'T BUY THIS.
I was searching for a new concealer when I came across the physicians formula website and saw this concealer. I wanted to try it because I have acne(whch hopefully will clear up from the creams my derm. gave me) and scars on my face. Normally I would buy concealers that would be okay, but I couldn't be impressed. This concealer is the worst thing I've ever used! On the package it says it lasts up to 12 hours with a natural smooth finish and it's such BS! It's very very very cakey and by an hour after putting it on I have to put some more on. The finish is no where near natural, it's completely obvious your wearing makeup. Do not buy this concealer!
Let me start out by saying that I've never had a concealer that blurs out my pores - and keeps them blurred/hidden all day... until this product! The coverage of this thing is awesome. It's very thick and creamy; the smallest, tiniest amount is enough to cover all the blemishes on my chin. I got this in the lightest color (Fair Light) and the shade is just perfect. It is one shade lighter than my skin tone, but I can still use it after applying foundation knowing that it'll blend in well without any lighter patches on my face. I find it a bit too heavy for my under eye area, though, but I don't mind since dark circles are the least of my worries. This product is probably the closest dupe I've found to the Amazing Cosmetics concealer. I don't know about you, but I'd rather pay $8 than $30+ for a concealer that works just as well.
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...
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.
