This concealer is amazing n does just what it's supposed to! I put this on over my BB corrector n it blends perfectly n looks natural. it is kinda expensive for how small it is but i feel like it lasts me awhile since i only have to use a little bit at a time n never have to touch up with it. It seriously stays on for over 10 hours for me. i just apply using my finger n it doesn't crease or rub off. the only negative thing about it is i can't use it during the winter time or drier season. i feel like when my face is more dry than usual, this concealer gets that cakey look underneath my eyes despite moisturizing n eye cream. so this would be my summer time concealer which is fine by me since it is also water resistant! ;)
I've been using this tube for 3 years and I only reached the 50% mark on it. It's a great value and good all around face concealer. It's not my HG but considering it's an easy brand to find and it's so easy to apply, it's probably one of my top department ME brand concealers. It looks natural, stays for the entire day, and doesn't break me out.
I'm combination-oily with a bit of acne. I did have a few years of being acne free but that's long gone. I do react badly to chemical sunscreen and my skin is prone to break-outs to certain ingredients. I can guess you can say my skin is sensitive!
I'm a NC25, Shu 774 (winter) or 764 (summer), and Shiseido O20. I have golden undertones so most brands do not match me. They're either too pink or too peachy.
Product Characteristics (Colour or Textures):
For me, there was only one shade that would work for my skintone. The colour 6 is the only light true golden undertone concealer. There are no other light golden undertone concealer in this line. All the other shades are either neutral or pink. This is probably best suited for NC30 but I can still use it as a NC25.
The concealer comes in a fairly big clear tube that is easy to control and dispense. I love how it's not in a pot and it's more hygenic that way.
As for the texture, it's a creamy thick fluid that does tap easily into the skin. It is on the drier side so I would never use this under the eyes. It would not do well in that area. If I'm having a good week, I can use this medium coverage concealer all over the face. I have used this in layers for extra coverage and achieved a medium to full coverage with it. It still looks fine with 2 layers but it starts to be apparent if you try with 3 light layers.
This doesn't cover super red spots or strong discolourations. It's a good all around concealer for minor issues. It photographs ok and it is fairly easy to apply. It does look natural and does not break me out.
This is a great value. I'm still working on my first tube and it's been 3 years!
Why I Like it:
It's a super convenient packaging to bring with me to the office if I have to go out at night afterwards. It's a solid concealer for minor issues. It's easy to pat on and look natural. I've had no break outs and it doesn't crease on me. You can put on a second thin layer to increase it's coverage and it still looks natural. Just gently pat it on the area.
Why I don't like it:
It has limited colours for Asian skintones.
Would I buy it again?
It's not my HG but I wouldn't hesistate to buy it if my HG wasn't available.
This concealer is excellent for covering up blemishes and redness! It is expensive but a little goes a long way. I've been using this for 5 months and am still on my first tube. Worth every penny!
Absolute HG concealer for me! Covers spots, melasma, under eye circles all perfectly while looking natural. Lasts forever too! It seems expensive, but a little goes a long way. I've used my tube every single day fir over a year now and still have plenty left. I was hesitant to use this under my eyes, but over an eye cream it works perfectly. The only concealer I've used under my eyes that doesn't crease horribly on my oily skin. I use shade #6 for my NC25-30 light olive skin.
I'm Asian-American with pretty strong yellow/golden undertones on my body, but my face is just slightly more pinkish/red (combo skin). I have struggled with acne for at least the last 13 years so I am always searching for the best concealer (coverage, lasting power and will not exacerbate existing breakouts). I'm about an NC25/30 in MAC (not sure since I've long since stopped using MAC foundations) and I use shade number 7. It matches very well, although not *perfectly*, it's still a tiny bit peachy for me.
With all this being said, Full Cover has been the best concealer I've used so far. What I really love about it is that it's so pliable, but the coverage is very, very good. This aspect alone allows better blending of the product on blemishes with minimal caking. Honestly I've never found any concealer NOT to cake if I want full coverage, mainly because I use topical medications on my spots that generally causes some dryness and it's also just the nature of full coverage face products.
I love using this on days when I don't want to do a full face (I live in Arizona..it can get up to 110 during the summer!). I've found even without primer or setting powder, it still lasts a good amount of time through the work day. Primed and set properly, it does not budge.
The finish is very natural, which is why I can get away with spots of this without powder. In a pinch, I can also use just an extremely thin layer under my eyes (or mix with a bit of eye cream/moisturizer). I tried several different application methods, but I still find using my fingers is best. The product really is quite lovely.
It has never broken me out, and I consider myself extremely acne-prone and sensitive to comedogenic ingredients. Yes, it is expensive, but I only use the tiniest bit each time to cover every blemish on my face every day. I've purchased this almost 8-9 months ago and barely made a dent. Will absolutely repurchase.
I have acne prone skin and am very sensitive. I usually little bumps from anything new that I try on my face. I do have combination skin. Saying that, I really love this concealer and it is honestly my " holy grail". I am on my 7th tube of this concealer. I do apply primer always and than I apply this. I found the best way to apply this is with a makeup sponge. I know this way , that the sponge absorbs the makeup but I found that my makeup looks natural and gives the most coverage when doing it this way. I used this during my high school years when I had acne , not severe but it was still pretty bad. It didn't break me out at all , if anything it helped my acne. I can understand if u apply it the wrong way or too much it will look cakey, but when applied with a sponge it really does cover all my acne and acne scars. My scars are pretty noticable all over my face and after I put this on, you cannot tell I have scars of any sort. I've had multiple people tell me it doesnt look like I have any makeup on. I set it with my MUFE HD powder and I am good to go. Also this makeup lasts all day, in the humidity, swimming. I apply my makeup at 6 in the morning and at 9 at night it still looks good. I have been in 100 degree weather and 80% humidity and this makeup does not budge. I have had water thrown in my face (not very nice) and my makeup stayed put. I have tried Kat Von D concealer, Cover FX, Mac, and other brands and they really don't compare to this. If you have severe acne scarring or are currently experiencing very bad acne I really suggest you try this. It is pricey , but I promise it is worth it. Might I add this looks better throughout the day! It gets a little darker throughout the day so keep that in mind when buying it. I stopped using foundation, because this was amazing by itself. Love it! I am a NW 37 in MAC in the winter, and #8 in the concealer, in the summer I am NW 40 and # 10 in this concealer.
I've been searching for a holy grail cover up to go over my blemishes and I finally found it! If your deciding between this concealer and kat von d, go for this one 110%. It is just so amazing, its so pigmented, goes on smooth and really covers well. The staying power isn't AMAZING but I'm use to doing touch up during the day. I highly highly recommend this concealer, its amazing. Oh and one plus side, it covers up acne scars easy!
I love this concealer. I use it on my eyes dark circles and to cover my redness around my nose and cheeks. I use MAC brush 224. I apply a little bit on my hand and put it where I need with this brush. I have never put it with my finger I think it would be too much: it would dry my under eye area, look cake and it is so concentrated that you need only small amount. It stays all day. This concealer is the best full cover concealer. I'll repurchase it.
I have very dark hereditary circles and bought this cause of all the good reviews. Although it does cover up circles well at first, it seems to fade very quickly for me and i apply about 3 layers of concealer. I found that it does work well for blemishes but i would not use it for undereye circles. Also it does sort of settle into fine lines more than the lancome concealer i compared it to (effacernes). I was disappointed but i do recommend it for blemishes.
I'm on my second tube of this stuff and it is absolutely fantastic.
I have acne prone, oily skin, and this concealer covers all my scars and spots up. But it does sweat off? I'm not sure how to put this, but the concealer kind of comes off of my face and just lies there on my skin. Sort of melting? Which is annoying, but honestly, it doesnt happen often so I don't mind.
It is pricey for a teenager like me to purchase but I do think it's worth it so I'm willing to pay the price.
All in all, I think if you're like me, with scars and redness, this is probably going to be the best concealer that has heavy duty and won't break you out.
