This product isn't for me. I have the shade light and it's a bit too orange toned for my skin, and I think I'm fairly neutral toned. I also find it quite hard to blend; it looks pretty cakey on me. It seems to sit on top of blemishes and eventually slide off to the side defeating the point of the product. I plan to finish the tube, not very happily though.
I have two "go to" concealers that I use on a daily basis but decided to buy this since it has an easier application than one of the other concealers I use. I really like this concealer. I covers well, matches my skin with no pink or orange tint to it, and it does stay on for a very long time. It is inexpensive and does its job. I will be using this again for sure.
First of all I have to mention that at the moment I am suffering from eczema and extremely dry skin. I wanted something to cover up the redness from my eczema so that I could get outside without feeling ashamed. We only have two colours to choose from: number 02 light (pink undertone) and number 03 medium (orange undertone), I got the number 03. This makes me look 10 years older in a second!! I have to admit that it covers well but not in a natural way because it goes on very dry and cakey and it's hard to blend. It emphasizes my dryness to an extreme and I have a feeling that it dried my skin even more. If you have dry skin I would stay far far away from this....NOTE: this is also not that cheap in Europe!
For a very cheap drugstore brand I think this concealer is true to its promise, it does stay on and cover. The shades arent so great, I could not find one to match mine. If you are yellow based skin colour dont even bother with these (or maybelline in general to be honest, they tend to cater for the pink and orange shades). You use very little of the product which is a plus, also abit difficult to put so little on as it cakes up. It cakes up to a point where it looks like a very cakey stick foundation- which personally im never a fan of stick foundations.
Overall i dont think its the worst and i have definitely used it in times of need just quickly when im going to a non special event. It does full coverage very well and nothing shows through. If you have a budget for a liquid concealer and only limited to the major brands then giving this a try isnt too bad as it will last for long. I wouldnt use it again in my opinion just due to the shade and thickness.
Note: Thinking about it, this concealer looked decent when it was UNDER mineral powder makeup. It didnt seem to agree with me when i used it with liquid foundation in any way.
the product is creamy enought. BUT under my eyes it makes me look like im 90 years old.. I GET SOO MANY WRINKLES, I'VE NEVER SEEN!!!!
u can't see them at all in real life (im 18) but when i apply this they are all over the place even my sister on 20 (which never uses makeup) said, wow u look like a elefant with all thoose wrinkles with ur new concealer!
auch.. NEVER but this, its crap., on blemishes it dried my skin sooo much.., and didn't even last that long... CRAP CRAP CRAP! AND its too expensive for such a crappy thing!
Well, this concealer does last for a very long time and it does offer great medium coverage, but from my experience, it can dry out your skin and become orange. It does its job, but not naturally enough. It always appears to match my skin tone, but that always changes within a few hours of use. I'm not into looking like I smeered cheetos on my face, so I gave it three lippys instead of 4.
I am about nc40 ish skin right now and I use this product from time to time. What I do like about it is that it has a peachy tint to it so it helps conceal my purple/blue-ishness cirles. I use this as my "base concealer' (using a tiny amount) then apply foundation & put a creamier concealer on top of it. It dries really fast so you have to be careful w/ it.
I WISH this came in more shades because Light was too light on me and the next shade down was too pink on me. Blahh.
This is a great concealer. It's thick but not cakey, and if you work quickly (this sets FAST) then you can blend it in easily and it stays ALL day. literally. I have to work so hard to make sure I have the right amount of other creamier concealers to make sure it doesn't crease/fade during the day, but for this I just dab it over my imperfections and give it maybe like 2 seconds to set and then start dabbing with my finger, and it sinks in and sets and doesn't budge ALL day.
It's also the most pigmented concealer i've come across thus far - actually conceals my acne scars which others didn't once I blended it into the skin. I think it's because it's not SO creamy that it just melts into my skin.
Will it last 24 hours? I've never tried. But I have gone 12 hour days of classes, labs, and work and there has been no issue of it fading (long after my eyeshadow and blush have given up).
The only downfall is that its shade selection is not the best, which makes me very very sad because this would be HG if i could find my perfect shade. The quest continues.
- long lasting properties
- easy application
- full coverage concealing
- overapplying can make it cakey
- sets SUPER fast; application learning takes a bit of experimenting
This stuff is so gross I really don't understand the good reviews. First of all I got this in too light a shade so it makes me look like a vampire. If you knew me you would understand it is really difficult to find something TOO pale for me. My biggest problem though (since the color choice was my fault) is that is super cakey and goopy. It's thick and it dosn't blend, it stays goopy for a long time but if you try to blend it the bottom layer won't budge. This also DOES NOT last 24 hours like that claim makes me laugh, it lasts like an hour because it rubs off and transfers like crazy. Will not repurchase the only thing it is good for is as an eyeshadow primer in a verrrrry thin layer because like i said that bottom layer wont budge after it sets (the problem is as a concealer that bottom layer isn't enough to cover any blemishes or dark circles) but it is pretty good at keeping shadow in place. It was also rather expensive its a small tube (much smaller than fit me concealer) and it was 9 dollars at CVS
This is my favourite ever concealer. I have VERY bad skin. Active spots, old spots and acne scaring. This covers ALL my blemishes.
It is very thick so a little goes a long way. My only gripe with it is that it claims to last 24 hours. It doesn't. It's nothing awfull (It is my favourite after all) and it lasts a good few hours, mid afternoon/ early evening after applying it in the morning but I feel it's wrong to call it an (up to) 24 hour one if it's no where near...
People have said it doesn't cover their dark under eye bags but I don't think a concealer like this work be best for that anyway. This is thick, matte and fast drying wearas for under eyes I would use something 'sheeny', lumonous and fairly light = easily blendable.
I dot this on a spot/ dark skin mark, with the sponge applicator and then blend in with a finger.
The colour range isn't great at all, but I am lucky in that number 3 suits me perfectly.
