-comes in a blue tube, hygienic since it's a squeeze type
-creamy, lovely texture and very easy to blend
-not much inside last me about half a year depending how much you use (i'm around light to medium coverage)
-only comes in 3 shades, I'm using shade 2 which is more of a yellowish based
-I bought it for $15, not on sale but makeup in NZ is pricey and they don't sell this on ebay
-good, a bit pricey but worth it :) would recommend to all skin-type. I have oily/combination skin and surprisingly it last all day all I did was touch up with some powder.
The lightest shade matches me perfectly. It blends well, gives medium coverage and has a natural look. It's the best I've found so far for under-eye circles.
I have come to buy this product because of Makeup alley itself. The colour No.3 suits me perfectly and it is light on my face and doesn't make me break out. The portable tube is convenient. I wouldn't use this concealer for my under eyes because it creases. I don't recommend this product to people without yellow undertones as it might look cakey.
This concealer, it's good but not VERY GOOD or the BEST. It offers 3 shades which can be kinda hard if your skintone is smacked right in the middle of the shades. I usually use shades 2 and 3. This concealer slides off easily during the day despite I set it with a powder.
The packaging is quite nice, and hygienic since it's a squeeze tube. I usually pat it on with my fingers on my undereye area if I'm wearing powder foundation only. I will mix a tiny amount of concealer with a little of my BB cream and apply it with my Ecotools concealer brush if I'm wearing liquid foundation and needs extra coverage.
This concealer is special because it's one of the few liquid concealers you can find in Singapore's drugstores. It's quite smooth and covers fairly well.
If you find the concealer cakey, maybe you haven't been blending it out well enough. I usually pat the spot where I applied concealer to blend it out further to ensure a smooth finish.
I would definitely repurchase this concealer because it's good enough for everyday. And one tube can last REALLY long.
This concealer works well when I was still a young teenager trying out cosmetics, its creamy and conceals my purplish dark eye circles well.
But time got to me (and the concealer) and now I find this concealer slightly cakey and brings out the uneven, delicate undereyes areas even more, which is really unflattering. But then again perhaps the concealer is getting really old (I had it for over 2 years already) thats why the texture got bad.
I really like how it comes in a tube though because I won't want to dip my brush into a pot for something that i'm using for my undereyes.
Overall 4 lippies because it could have been better, but for the price I would say that just try it out if you've nothing to lose.
But I urge people with sensitive skin to think twice before purchasing because my friend got an allergic reaction from this and she had to throw it away;.
After reading all the comments here, I was super excited to try this product because I've been on the look out for a good concealer forever. I have really dark under eye circles and a few blemishes on my face that need a bit of extra coverage. I bought this in the lightest shade (#1) and it was a great match. When I applied it, it gave great coverage! However, I had some sort of reaction to it and it left my face peeling, red and stinging. I'm so disappointed because it would have been a really fantastic concealer otherwise. I don't normally have sensitive skin at all, and can use pretty much anything on my skin, so there must be some sort of allergen in this formulation. Disappointing, Za!
I bought this because of the reviews and because it's dirt cheap. And so far I've finished 1 tube and have repurchased. It conceals decently, although I find that it doesn't conceal dark circles much (I use another product for that now).
Could somebody please tell me where I can buy this in Southern California?
I was in denial about this product because i never believed that a drugstore brand can beat a counter brand like MAC/MUFE/Shu Uemura/etcetc.
I first used it when i was 15 and while i found it very good, i sincerely believed that once i started work and had enough money to afford the high end brands, i would say goodbye to this.
Fast foward to 10 years later. I am now 25, i have tried all the high end brands.... and this is *still* the best. The best. Period.
The texture is perfect - creamy, easy to blend, but not so liquid that the coverage becomes sheer. The colour (I use shade 1) matches my NC15-20 skintone perfectly, and gives my undereye a healthy look, not cakey at all!
On lazy days I like to just apply it under my eye area, on my freckles and under my chin/on my nosebridge to highlight. It looks like light makeup done right.
I have no idea how many tubes I've used but whenever there's a sale I stock up because I know I'm not going to change my mind about this. I do still test out concealers as I walk through beauty halls, but nothing compares.
I do need to set it with a powder though, if not it tends to start looking a bit shiny which I don't like.
Very good concealing power but sad to say it irritates my acne prone sensitive skin and clogs my pores.I only applied it on a few areas and i woke up to small bumps on those areas the following morning. Maybe my skin's just way too sensitive.
I use it under my eyes because the color does a great job of brightening my eyes =) I look awake and happier.
However it has the tendency to sit into fine lines so be sure to get a good eye cream as a base, i use Nivea's q10 plus eye cream =) very good combination!!
I'll repurchase this because of the packaging and price, but of course i'll only use this under my eyes =D
