-Some say the packaging is unsanitary, but I find it very useful and easy to apply
-Sooo creamy and spreadable
-Covers mild hyperpigmentation
-Amazing at covering large pores
-Lasts all day on my oily/combo face
-It is glittery... Not sure what revlon was thinking...
At first I hated this concealer, because I was expecting it to conceal my acne and acne scarring. However, I "rediscovered" it when I tried it on my eyes. My eyelids are pretty transparent, so they appear purplish. This concealer covers that up on a "no-makeup" day. My under eye circles are not that bad, and this covers it up as much as I like (I don't like full coverage of under eye circles-- I think it's too much coverage). It does a decent job of covering up redness around the nose and mouth as well. Also, the color blends flawlessly into my yellow-toned, medium skin (MUFE HD 140; NC25/30). I wear the shade medium. I have no fine lines or wrinkles.
(UPDATE: April 8, 2012 - after wearing it longer, I don't hate it as much as my original review, but it's still too much money IMO)
I've never used concealer, so this is really my first one.
PROS: The stick container is kinda nice and I like being able to apply it directly from the tube to my face.
CONS: This is considered concealer? It doesn't have enough coverage for my undereye and around my nose at all unless I really pile it on (believe it's better non undereye places anyways). If I'm just planning to lightly cover an area then finger blend it, my finger removes most of the coverage. In addition, the sparkle that this stuff has, it looks WAY more than the foundation. !@#$ It's more noticable and more of a sin because nobody wants to draw attention to concealed areas! In real life after being powdered and such, it's not that noticable, but I wish they'd have toned it down from the start.
OTHER: The color 002 Light is a yellow toned fair color that matches/seems ever so slightly darker than PhotoReady Liquid in 002 Vanilla. I could have gone lighter though the only other light shade looks really pink.
OVERALL: This isn't really concealer IMO, it's more concealer/stick foundation hybrid. I would recommend this for those who don't mind LIGHT coverage and are not afraid to add another good layer of product to their skin (since it's not super concentrated you can't get away with using a tiny amount like with other concealers). It's too expensive given everythng I've said hence the 1. If it was cheaper, I'd give it a 2.
This concealer is pretty good. It is very creamy and blends like a dream. The lasting power is okay, don't expect this concealer to stay too long on the skin though it fades after about 5+ hours even with powder on top. TIP: this concealer is NOT good for applying on zits (larger pimples) but it is OKAY on acne scars because like i said, the concealer will somehow fade during the day and i'm not sure why. Generally speaking for the price of a CREAM concealer it is pretty good. But if it could just last longer it would be great!
This is the best concealer I have ever used. It's a great value at only $10 and it lasts quite awhile (daily usage for about 6 months). You also don't need to use a lot to get good coverage over problem areas. I like that there's no scent, the matte finish and the great coverage (wonderful at hiding dark under eye circles, blemishes and other skin discoloration).
I highly recommend this product.
This stuff is absolutely terrible. The coverage is super sheer. The lightest color is too dark for me and slightly peachy. I tried to use it anyway and set it with StudioFix powder. It slid right into my tiny under eye wrinkles that I didn't even know were forming and made me look about 5 years older. (Oh yeah, that's why I don't buy creamy stick concealers.) Also- the glitter. At first it seems like it might not be that bad, BUT if you think there's ever a chance that you might end up face to face with someone in direct sunlight you should totally avoid this. It looks ridiculous. Really disappointing.
A fantastic drugstore concealer. It's creamy and blends well; also can be used under the eyes. I will be repurchasing.
This concealer provides pretty decent coverage for skin that isn't too acne-prone and blends well. I wouldn't recommend it to my twelve-year-old self, however - it's absolutely not for people with a huge amount of blemishes. It's creamy and you only need to use a little to cover up acne scars, redness, mild acne, whatever! It lasts fairly long, and doesn't result in obnoxious oily patches like some cheaper concealers.
I think I'll be buying this for a long time to come. It matches my PhotoReady foundation perfectly as well, so I never have to worry about someone pointing at my face and being like, "Dude, what's on your face?!" It's great. (: I don't really like using it as an under-eye concealer though, it makes me look pretty cake-faced. Maybe that's because my under-eye circles aren't as bad as I think? Otherwise, I'm pretty sure I'm turning into a junkie for this concealer. Excellent for people who are more or less happy with their skin and just need some touch-ups to their complexion.
this is an *EXCELLENT* high-coverage concealer. i took a chance on this one day at the drugstore just because it looked like it would provide good coverage and i was right. the way i use this concealer is to go over the darkest parts of my undereye circles (the ring right under the eye, the inner corner and outer corner, and right below the bottom lashline) after i've already used my foundation lightly over the whole undereye area. so this is my second step in concealing the darkness that i have around my eyes. now granted, i'm not dealing with your average slight darkness around the eyes, i'm half Irish and half Lebanese so my skincolor is an extremely pale NC15-20 and yet i have super dark, blueish-purplish-red circles that go completely AROUND my eyes. so if you just have run-of-the-mill dark circles, this concealer alone would more than do the job for you, but for me, it's an extra step on top of my foundation that really makes a huge difference. the concealer comes in a stick but unlike a lot of other stick concealers, it's not dry but very creamy and glides on effortlessly. it also blends with the gentlest tap tap tap of my ring finger and any imperfection is perfectly- and NATURALLY- covered. it is a dream come true!!! this concealer also works WONDERS on red spots and blemishes; i especially like it for a blemish that's healing and might be a little scabby or dry or uneven surfaced, and in this case i take a small, stiff makeup brush, tap it against the surface of the concealer, and then stipple it onto the blemish. it just works wonderfully and looks totally natural. i use the shade Light Pale 002 and it works perfectly with my pale, NC 15-20 complexion. i just don't have enough great things to say about this concealer-- it's a godsend! if you have anything that needs concealed in a natural looking, non-cakey way, give this one a try!
*EDIT* had to add this after reading some others reviews-- mine has not a TRACE of glitter in it. i would NEVER wear anything with glitter in it but eyeshadow and even then it has to be super fine shimmer. i wonder if it's like the Photoready Foundation, others loved it and said theirs had no glitter and mine was a glitter bomb. oh well, just remember as you're reading these reviews that not all of them are glittery, mine is as non-glittery any other concealer, and i adore it's perfect, brightening coverage.
I bought this on a whim after I used a sample in a CVS and liked the way it went on so smoothly. But when I got home, I wasn't as enthused. For blemishes - really bad blemishes - it's a little too flimsy (for lack of a better word) and I prefer the Maybelline mineral concealer. For undereye circles it's not too bad but - again - a little too sheer. It glides on pretty nicely and the shade (medium light) is right. Just not sure I'd buy again and I'm still looking for the right concealer - if any exists - for my dark shadows.
