Seems like a great concealer but I way off with selecting the right shade. I wore this once and it appears to stay put throughout most of the day..though I wore this without any powder as it tends to look unflattering on my under eye area.
This item is full coverage, and since I have the wrong a shade it's hard to make it work even when blending.
This concealer is AMAZING on blemishes with its waterproof qualities. As for under eye circles, I can understand why some despise it. It is a non-comedogenic formula which means that it is no wear near as creamy as the oil-packed Erase Paste by Benefit. This is my HG concealer, and I've tried all of the concealers by MAC, and many from Benefit, Stila, and BE. My biggest complaint is that it is quite expensive at $36 CDN, although I don't mind because a single tube has lasted my acne-prone skin for a whole year (it's extremely pigmented).
When it comes to needing full coverage, this is a great product. Its staying power is amazing and is perfect to use all year round, including in the summer's heat and humidity. It has a great matte finish. The only downside for me is that I have to mix two shades (14 and 18) to get a good match for my skin tone. Although the price may be pretty steep, a little goes a long way. In fact, I wear the concealer everyday and the tube lasted me about 6 months. I have tried a slew of concealers and always end up going back to this one because of its staying power.
I wanted to like this but it broke out my oily-combo skin. Too bad though, because it stayed put, had great coverage and lasted all day.
Make Up For Ever Full Cover concealer ($30 usd and 0.50 oz.) is lightweight full concealer. I have in shade #10 golden beige (Mac nc40) just a touch lighter than my skin tone. The texture of the full cover is smooth and easy to blend, it is not creamy like Eve Pearl salmon concealer that I use. It does a good job of covering acne scars, pigmentation and redness; but it will not covers them as well as wearing a foundation. I still can see certain acne scars on my face. It is not the most amazing concealer in the market but it gets the works done. Full Cover comes in a plastic squeeze tube which I like because it prevent product dryness, more sanitary, and easy of usage. There is not scent in the product either. The price is somewhat expensive but it comes in almost 2x the size of most concealers around 0.25oz to 0.30 oz. of the department brands. Overall Full Cover is a good product to own to cover minor scars and pigmentations but it is not the best out there.
This does offer full coverage. Because it doesn't have a creamy touch to it, it doesn't blend that well. It just sits on your skin. When I put my mineral powder over it, I can definitely see the powder sticking more to the areas where I have applied this concealer. Perhaps it just doesn't work well with mineral powder.
Definitely the best concealer I have ever tried! I have shadowy dark undereyes so a good undereye product set is a must.
I have tried endless concealers, both drugstore and Sephora brand, that were supposed to give heavy coverage, but none of them did enough. Finally I realized that maybe the answer was waterproof concealer so somebody at Sephora recommended this to me as one of their best and I love it!
It gives great coverage and lasts a lot longer than my other concealers. It blends pretty well and doesn't rub all over the place like crazy. It isn't too thick or too watery, I like the consistency. I don't really have any scars or pimples on my face that need covering, only my undereyes need product, but it does work well on an occasional pimple too. Heavy coverage without a heavy feel.
It is kind of expensive at 30 dollars but I've seen more expensive concealers around, plus a small bit of this concealer gives a lot of coverage so the tube should last a long time. I thought I lost mine a few months ago and I ran out to repurchase ASAP..nothing else does the trick like this does. Also, I know Lancome has a similar product (Effacernes or something like that) so I asked at Sephora which product was better and they said this one works better than the Lancome.
I also highly highly advise using a powder with this concealer. It always gave much better coverage than most but I recently started using the Make Up Forever Microfinish HD powder over it and the coverage is even heavier and longer-lasting once I used that stuff with it. It made this product go from great to fantastic.
I love this concealer. I put some of this over my moisturizer and some Clinique Almost powder makeup on top and I look flawless. This seems expensive but you need so little to cover up that in the long run it's priced reasonable. I don't have big flaws to cover but using a little of this on my cheeks makes me use alot less powder which will save me money because I used to go through my Clinique powder so quickly. The powder alone did not last all day. I needed to reapply half way but now I just blot since I'm oily and I'm good to go. The texture is like a thick cream, truly full coverage. Hard to blend without moisturizer. I use #7 and I'm NC30. I basically use a tiny bit all over like foundation to boost my powder foundation so I use less powder and make my powder last longer.
So disappointed, I was expecting to be amazed but I guess this is only really good for spots & blemishes. I tried using it for my undereyes as i'm looking for a full coverage waterproof concealer but its way too dry. It was hard to spread & blend (a pet peeve for me) & it just looked dull & creasy. I mean I have oily skin so I thought it would work ok for me but it just made me realize how I like my undereye concealers to be smooth, moisturizing, & creamy..this definitely isn't it.
Very thick, hard to spread & blend, dry.
As for undereyes, its not good. It was dull, dry, & emphasized any fine lines I have (btw, im 17 & I have slight fine lines around the undereyes, blehh genetics) but its coverage is great.
Very long wearing, definitely waterproof, doesn't rub off at all.
Overall, this concealer I could see being very good for any imperfections on the face besides undereye. Its just too drying & its not smooth or creamy enough for me. So if you're looking for a longwearing, smooth, easy to blend, creamy, and moisturizing undereye concealer that wont settle into fine lines..this is not for you. continued >>
I use both #10 and #8 to cover hyperpigmentation resulting from acne. It offers really good coverage and does not seem to break me out or trigger a bad reaction afterwards.
One thing I do not like about this concealer is how hard and energetically I need to blend the edges.
I think the packaging is nice, I dot the product on using the pointed end then either use my ring finger or my concealer brush to pat and blend it in.
