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!
PROS: It has AMAZING coverage!!! it is industrial strength concealer. very thick like tattoo concealer. it will cover up all acne and acne scaring. Best drugstore full coverage concealer i've found!!!
CONS: it only has about 3 color selections!!!! this is the part that definitely turns me off of this product. i bought the color natural light and i am a NC35 in MAC's studio sculpt foundation. It was really really light. The best way to make it work is too put it UNDER your foundation.
I would buy this again because of the coverage for the price is pretty good.I haven't found a better one yet. I have a lot of acne scars that normal concealers can't cover so it is pretty good for me because i'd rather put on heavy concealer than cake on foundation.
It's a shame that the coloring on this product sucks, because it gives fabulous coverage and has great staying power!
I have this in Soft Yellow and while it does appear yellow, it's very chalky and almost white once applied. It's very thick which is nice. Maybe too drying for use under the eye.
Someone suggested using this UNDER your foundation and I think that's a wonderful idea, because on it's own it's a bit too white.
Makes a pretty good eyeshadow base, though!
This stuff is hardcore!
I use this stuff to cover up tattoos and seriously dark under eye circles. The color selection is limited, but for me the lightest one is perfect.
This stuff is almost comparable to dermablend products.
Except, dermablend has more of a color choice than this stuff.
This conceals really well, but tends to look whitish so this is best worn under a foundation or tinted moisturizer-I'm giving it a 3 because I like when I can walk out of the house with nothing on my skin but concealer, but this is great for those really awkward red bumps that nothing else can disguise. Also covers bruises pretty well because of the thick consistency.. A tiny bit goes a long way, so be sure to blend. Doesn't irritate my acne, which is a big plus.
I got the 'fair light' on sale for about $2 at Walgreens in Jackson, MS... I had no idea why it was so cheap. I think it usually retails for about $9?
But product wise; this is a very good tool, it seems to be the best concealer I have ever used, because it creates a good canvas and it doesn't irritate or cause breakouts on the skin.
The only downside is it becomes a bit tricky to get out of the tube, like it is more of a paste consistency if anything so it must dry up easily.
(Btw Physicians Formula need to branch out to the UK, their stuff is awesome.)
I Bought this in Fair Light and is a little too light for me but that's fine, you can't tell after I put on a tinted moisturizer or foundation. I decided to try this stuff out after using every other concealer, I'm sick of using concealers that just either empathizes that I have a blemish or just covers like my tinted moisturizer. This stuff covers very well in my opinion, at least for the great price anyways ($8). Also a little dab goes a long way, which is nice. If you're medium light I'd say get the Natural Light shade, and if you're fair get the Fair Light. The only con is that this are the only colors besides the green. This is my new concealer for now, unless I find something better later on...
