I do like this concealer but it does have one little drawback. I find that it goes on so creamy that I have to layer it on a zit that's raised. Other than that, it covers other imperfections on my face very nicely. It blends easily and stays all day.....except for raised zits which I find sometimes it slips off. I do not use this under my eyes (love Lancome's eff) as it makes them look crepey and just didn't set nicely. I'll probably repurchase but am always on the lookout for that HG!
This is my favourite concealer. I have already repurchased it. It doesn't clog my pores and my skin has improved and I'm not breaking out even half as much as I used to. I find this very hydrating and the lady in the shop said. You do have to know how to apply it though, so make sure you ask the shop assistant to show you - they should know! I use "lighter than light". I have extremely sensitive skin and it's amazing to find something that doesn't wreck it!
My favorite concealer so far! I don't need a lot of concealer but I use this on the occasional blemish & under my eyes. You need to layer it for coverage, don't just apply a thick coat. I think it's important to moisturize before you use this. So at least for now, I will repurchase. continued >>
I also bought this because a makeup artist told me that it was very moisturizing and creamy (they stopped selling the Vincent Longo cream concealer that I love). It is very cakey and dry looking when you get it on your eyes. It covers so easily and perfectly, but it just looks too, too dry on the eyes. Don't buy this.
Firstly, I was recommended this by a Sephora SA when I asked for a very moisturizing undereye concealer. Sometimes I think Sephora SAs are living in some alternate universe, as I would not necessarily call this "moisturizing".
Upon viewing the shades, I thought that the lightest color (called "lighter than light") was going to be too apricoty for me. Generally I stick to yellow based undereye concealers, because I've found that brightens up the area the best. But the lady convinced me & I purchased the product. Got it home, tried it on, yadda yadda. Wasn't super impressed, but it seemed to blend okay over eye cream. I was a little put off by the color, because it just didn't seem light enough. I hate pink/apricot based undereye concealer. I want my undereye concealer to be a shade lighter than my skin tone, as there needs to be a brightening effect. I know others feel differently, but this is just what works for me.
Anyway, the dealbreaker for me with this stuff is that it's just way too heavy. If you try to pat on 2 layers, it's cakey creasy city. 3 layers and it's just a hot mess. You look 20 years older than you actually are. It was actually creating fine lines to sink into. Staying power sucked too - it had melted off my face an hour later. Overall, this isn't a horrible concealer, I can definitely imagine it working for others...But I'm somebody that just needs more sheer coverage than this. If you're in the market for something pink based & pretty thick, then maybe this is for you. I don't see myself repurchasing this.
UPDATE - 2/6 - I started using this as a blemish concealer and i'm LOVING IT. I still need to be careful with how much i apply as it can still tend to look heavy and caked on, but when I moisturize correctly and apply a very thin layer - it covers really, really well. continued >>
After trying every concealer out there, I have finally stopped looking. This is perfect for those hard to cover blemishes. Most concealers that have this degree of coverage contain so much oil your zit will grow to the size of a grapefuit. This helps to heal the skin (not dry out the blemish, but repair the surrounding skin) while it covers. My skin , although not actually perfect looks perfect when I use this. It works well after using my BE mineral foudation followed by my Mineral Veil to set it. The packaging is good (the enclosed sponge is useless. glides on much more naturally with a fingertip). Although the price is high, I paid $17, it will last a LOOOONG time.
Hate may be too strong a word but I definitely dislike this product. it doesn't cover my undereye circles well and tends to ball up and harden so it looks as if i have dirt under my eyes. and it gives the "poorly concealed" effect as well! so that its obvious that you have dark eye circles. def will not repurchase.
Made those fine lines stand out under my eyes, greasy and then when i put it around my nose it made me break out.
I was very hopeful for the product after it was recommended to me at Sephora. I have fine lines under my eyes and was looking for a product that wouldn't just settle in to and thus emphasize those lines. Which is exactly what this did. I thought I was applying too heavily, but no, no matter how I applied it settled. Oh well.
I never used this as a nighttime treatment because, as other reviewers have said, I did not want makeup on my pillow!
Overall, very disappointed.
After searching and searching...through MANY high end and low end concealers...this works best for me. I would compare it to BECCA concealer in it form, so dont be suprised if it seems DRY.
I have fair skin but i feel the medium does a better job at concealing without RACCOON circles...I DO NOT wear this as an eyecream, and i do find i like a bit of something underneath to help it goes on smoother. It does and amazing job of concealing and blends beautifully. Also you can really build it when necc. I find it works great around my nose and other areas where there is a slight discoloration.
** This is in a POT....so you either need to use a brush or, like I do, Take some onto your finger and let it heat up for a sec -then DAB it and work it in lightly. This is what i have found works brilliantly. I seem to take to much product when i use a brush.
Also,you get a ton for the nominal price.
