I'm quite impressed with the staying power of this concealer. It covers blemishes INCREDIBLY well and yet I do find it blendable. I did buy it in a shade too dark (I got Light-Medium but I should have purchased Ligh). I self-tanned to make it work for my skin, and that worked fine.
I've been mixing this with my foundation as well, and I love that it gives me natural, but heavier, coverage. And if I have some spots I want to cover but this product is too pigmented for them, I mix a little foundation in there. One concealer will never work for the multitude of pigmentation problems your skin can throw at you. But this one, with some tweaking, can definitely come close. I will repurchase this in a better shade for me, for sure. It's a little pricy for a drugstore product, but worth it I think.
My one complaint is the wand-tube packaging. I hate it for concealer. It's unhygenic and inconvenient. continued >>
I don't think this really blends well. It's too heavy and probably not a good idea at all. Better stick to a good foundation rather than spending extra cash on this wand.
When I first heard about this concealer I was a tad skeptical. I normally put a salicylic acid gel on spots before my moisturizer, but topping it with a cream concealer tends to make it look dry and flaky. I wasn't expecting much coverage with this, but I figured I can always return it if it doesn't work out.
I get tiny red blemishes that pop up in groups at certain spots of my face sometimes. I haven't used this for that long yet since it's medicated and it's only meant for blemish cover up, so I only use it when needed. I found that it worked way better than my MAC Studio Finish concealer at covering dark acne spots! It wasn't as drying as I thought it would be since it has salicylic acid, so the spots I covered up didn't stick out. The consistency of the concealer is not too thick or watery and blended into my skin nicely with warm fingers. I recently got a horrible cystic acne on my jawline and this covered it up pretty damn good! When I removed my makeup, the bump even went down and so did the redness :D The applicator is a sponge tip, but I prefer to put a dab on the back of my clean hands to avoid bacteria transfer (from blemish to blemish). The one thing that I could not stomach much like the rest of the Revlon face makeup is the smell - yikes! It has a strong chemical smell, but the smell does subside. I had to cover around my nose and that's how I was introduced to the smell. Other than that, it is a great concealer to have! I don't have huge breakouts, but I do have scars so this was fantastic! a MUST-TRY!
I love Colorstay Foundation for oily/combination skin and I use this concealer with it. This does not break me out or clog my pores. Only drugstore concealer I trust.
I use the light/medium and after blending a tad it's a pretty good match for my skintone (light skinned w/ yellow & beige undertones). I like the sponge tip applicator...I usually put the tiniest dab on the blemish or mark I am trying to cover and then pat it into the area with my fingertip. The texture is a bit runny but I do like that you can layer it without it looking cakey. It would almost be HG status if it had a higher % salicylic acid it in to help heal blemishes faster. continued >>
This works okay for me. Covers and stays put. Doesn't blend well. But so far it's the best d/s concealer I've tried. Not totally impressed, though.
I am a fan! I haven't had much luck with other Revlon concealers and foundations, but I like this one. I have a couple acne scars that every other concealer will just slide right off of, but this one stays put. You can layer this too without it looking cakey. I put some on and did a double take when I looked in a mirror later - my blemishes and scars were totally covered. Even close up this concealer looks like skin rather than makeup - this is my HG concealer for blemishes.
Ive always had a hard time finding the right concealer due to my acne scars.
I bought this for about $9 and im totally in love with it.
It evens out my skin tone and wont fade during the day.
I would buy this product over and over again.
I really didn't expect such great quality from a drugstore concealer, but it was great ! It gave me great coverage and yes the color did stay as it promised, haha. I usually use the soft flex brush and put a bit on the back of my (clean) hand and then dip my concealer brush into that.Then i'd mix in a little bit of moisturizer, about a fifth of how much concealer i've used. I find that if i dont mix in moisturizer it wont blend as well and can be a bit flakey.
I don't suggest using the brush directly onto your face, unless you would like bacteria grow in your concealer of course. So please don't do it, it will also lead to break outs and what not if you use the brush directly onto your face.
Ive been using this concealer for a bit over a year now, and i'm running out, it's starting to get a bit clumpy and... there are bits at the bottom of the container. I think it's time to repurchase.
i got this about a week ago when CVS was having a BOGO sale. my mom and i each picked one up. i got the light/medium, and i must say it's a pretty good concealer. i like its consistency, although my mom thinks its a little too runny. it matches my skin tone perfectly, and does a good job concealing my acne scars. i've had a massive breakout recently and although my face has cleared up, i still have a lot of acne scars. so until it all fades away (ever sooo slowly...), this will keep my face looking cleaner. i think it also aids in speeding up the scar fading process [keeping fingers crossed].
