Ehh, this concealer is really just okay. It does a decent job of concealing my undereye circles, and a better job of concealing the blemishes that I get from the occasional zit. It's creamy, and yet, it doesn't go on all that evenly. I also don't like how it looks slightly cakey, so no, I will not be repurchasing this. The color selection, though, is quite good, I must say.

The color of this coverstick is way too orange and draws so much attention to what i'm trying to hide. It is also waxed based, which means IT CAN CLOG PORES AND/OR IRRITATE EXISTING BLEMISHES. So not good for any blemish! I don't like its sticky, waxy finish and tough to blend feel.
I wont repurchase. There are tons of amazing concealers out there and this is not one of them!

Rimmel "Hide the Blemish" Concealer was really a waste of my money. I used this product maybe 3-5 times since I bought it and it doesn't do anything for my skin. I have the Beige color, and it BARELY conceals. I don't conceal most of the time, but I thought I would try this product since I have bags under my eyes occasionally (I have a child, hence the lack of sleep). The only good thing I would say about this product would be the consistency. The formula is really creamy and it doesn't take a lot of conceal, but the staying power really is only for about an hour then it slides right off!

This was an OKAY concealer. I put in on and about 2 1/2 hours later it had slid a little bit and piled into some lines on my face. I put in on my chin alittle, my left cheek and as a eye concealer, although the color match was perfect for me, it was just poor quality. LAter in the day the spots that i had applied were shiny and greasy.

Ladies, there is better out there!

I purchased this in the soft honey shade and so far Im really liking it. It does a great job at concealing blemish's and red and dark spots. It goes on smooth and blends easily and doesnt cake up, settle into pores or lines and doesnt "melt" off by the end of the day. Im not too crazy about the smell of it..but it isnt strong, so I will continue to use :) Unless, I start breaking out of course from it haha

this was one the first concealers that i really liked. it covered up my blemishes wonderfully. i think why i stopped buying this was because the colors were rather noticeable, and if you put on too much, it made your blemish look worse.

This concealer isn't great - i got it in Soft Honey (#103) and find it really quite thick, sticky to apply, and difficult to blend. I've had cheaper concealers that apply better but this one is a fairly good shade for my NC25 asian yellow toned skin, it is a little peachier than my skintone but less so than other concealers i've tried.

Doesn't last long, but not many drugstore ones do so i'm used to it. I will continue buying it because it's fairly cheap and such a good match to my skintone, but as soon as i find another cheap concealer that is a similar shade but better quality, this ones going in the bin or up for swaps.

EDIT 24 Nov 2010 - I now use it on my eyelids as a primer and although it isn't perfect or UDPP quality, it definitely works as better as this than as a concelaer.

This was really cheap! I got this on sale at Shopper's Drug Mart for about $3.99.
What I don't like about this is:
1. The fact that it doesn't stay on long/rubs off easy. But that's expected from cheap concealer.
2. The fact that it doesn't say "hypoallergenic", "won't clog pores" like most concealers have written on their package.
3. The fact that it's kind of oily.

Strangely, I bought this and when I put it over my acne it helps. But it's half a shade darker than my skintone... which kind of confuses me. But hey, whatever works!

Hm.. Also, when I apply too much on I've got that cakey, somewhat dry skin look. I absolutely loathe that kind of cakey-ness. But then I realized that concealer didn't work for all the redness on my face. My Physician's Formula Green Concealer worked miracles on my redness! (Much better than this one did)

Overall, I use this one on top of my PF's Green Concealer. (Dot some on, don't blend, don't Rimmel's Hide the Blemish on, then liquid foundation, then just blend altogether)

I find that if you do that, it's less likely to rub off because you're blending everything together at once. It works better and the coverage stays. (Note: must apply concealer lightly, or else this won't work.)

So, I honestly think that you just have to find your own way to work this product. If not, it can lead to break-outs, or no progress at all.

But I love it because it's cheap and I found a great way to use it.
I recommend it if you have acne, but make sure you do something so it doesn't make you break out.

This is actually the first concealer I've ever used but I think it's pretty decent. The only thing that I don't like is that there aren't very many shades to choose from and they seem a bit off but I can't really complain when it's only $4-5. Other than that it hasn't caused my skin to break out and it blends well so it's all good. I'm really starting to like Rimmel.

Pretty much your average stick concealer. It goes on really smooth like the Covergirl Smoothers concealer, however, doesn't concealer as well. It can be a little cakey. The shades aren't too perfect, but for under $5, it wasn't a bad buy. However, I'd fork out the extra dollar or two and buy the Covergirl Smoothers.
