I was recommended this by RachhLoves on YT, she raves on and on about it, so i picked it up considering its like 6 bucks, nothing much to lose. Unfortunately in my country, this has two shades, I picked up the No.2 which was a tad lighter than my skintone, I'm NC35 btw. But once I blended in, it blends in pretty nicely on my skin, and the fact that it is a tad lighter is undetectable once blended in. Has a good yellow undertone. The coverage is medium and buildable to full coverage, has quite thin consistency which i like. Doesnt get cakey..Doesnt oxidize..Doesnt break me out.Stays on my very oily skin all day without budging or separating from my bb cream/foundation. I use this mainly on post acne scars and dark spots, have not tried it under the eyes so i cant comment on the usage for that purpose...I'm glad i picked it up. I much prefer this to my MAC PLW, as this is lighter/thinner in consistency and yet provides the same amount of coverage. Highly Recommended!
I heard people raving about this concealer, but then they said it was discontinued. I didn't think anything of it. Then when I went to a liquidation store, I saw this. Only one left, a little bit darker then my skin (Im pretty sure it was shade "sand"... Medium-1?)but I got it anyway for $3.99.
I really like this!!! It covers blemishes well, it's really creamy, and doesn't cake up. I wish they didn't Discontinue this! I use it everyday along with my Hard Candy Glamoflauge, and it works perfectly.
Check the liquidation stores everyone!
LOVE this concealer! I purchased it after reading the good views on mua, and i am so excited i did it! It blends in very well, my skin is very very pale so i always go for the lightest shade. It looks a little bit orange but after you blend it into your skin, it fits very well and did a very good job on concealing your imperfections. You might need to multiply the layers if you need a better coverage.
The only reason i didn't give it a 5 is that it feels somehow dry on your skin, i need more moisturising. Anyways I love this concealer and am using it everyday. I wish they never discontinue this product because i would buy it over and over again!
UPDATE 22/03/2013 I am getting disappointed with this product because it really dries out my skin and doesn't last long. My skin already starts to patch after 6 hours' application, gross! I am trying new products but still couldn't get one satisfying my needs. Any mua expert recommends a good product works for super dry skins? xD
I LOVE this product!!!!! It has great coverage and lasts throughout the day, and it's really easy to blend in. The only thing I don't like about it is that it makes a big mess when you use it. It gets all over counter but I guess I just have to be more careful:/
This concealer is my absolute favourite. It has a great covarage and I'm a big fan of the texture. I don't really need foundation when I'm wearing this - I only hide the blemishes with this and it's enough. I do have a sensitive skin and I haven't noticed any breakouts, which is a huge plus. Unfortunately this product isn't sold where I live anymore, so it seems that I have to find a new favourite concealer.
Sad they discontinued this cause it covered imperfections so well.
Love love love this concealer. Ive gone through many different brands of concealer but this is by far the best. Sadly I can no longer find it at any stores (walgreens, cvs, walmart, or target) not sure if its discontinued or not but i think i will give the 24 hr maybelline concealer a try. Hopefully i can find this one again.
Purchased this on sale at Big Lots for only a couple of bucks in the color Beige I believe. It is quite a good overall concealer; it doesn't sink into fine lines under the eyes and it covers spots relatively well. It isn't as high coverage as some other concealers out there but for the price it is very good, and I recommend if you don't have a lot to cover but just want to cover minor spots. Could do with slightly more sanitary packaging (dabbing the wand on your face and sticking it back in the container isn't exactly hygienic) but would still repurchase!
This is not bad. I prefer to use lighter coverage foundations now so that I can let my skin breathe and minimize cosmetic acne, and I will use this concealer over those annoying blemishes that disfigure my face. I would say that it covers good, but not perfect. It is ok because when you set it with powder, it will look almost perfect.
Well, at least I didn't break out from it, thats a good news.
When my acne scars were very visible and I used to wear mineral foundation, I always used this concealer in 40 Sand, which for some reason was very hard to find in my local drugstores so I always had to order it online. I bought this repeatedly because the coverage was medium to full coverage, and because I have a bit of a bias for Maybelline products. I also have a gold/yellow undertone, and this concealer in Sand didn't look too off on my skin tone like it did in the other concealer shades from this line did. The staying power was pretty decent as well if I applied this before applying mineral foundation, in which it would somewhat set the concealer at the same time.
I used a pretty good amount of this concealer back when I used it; I used to dot it in around 3-5 areas of my face as well as under my eyes almost everyday, so the value of this product was stretched to about 6–9 months before I had to order a new tube. I wish that this came in a squeeze tube packaging; I would have liked it more, because sometimes you're about to run out of product but you can see that there's still some left in the stick tube, yet the concealer wand can't reach it. It kind of feels like a waste, knowing how few dots of it I even needed and how long I could still use the same tube for.
I no longer use concealers because my acne scars have cleared up and I generally no longer break out in acne, but if I were to purchase another concealer again I would always default back to this one.
