I don't really like this product. It covers good but it makes my skin look very dry even if i moisturize before i apply it. I dont really think it's that creamy either it kind of feels like chalk to me. I won't buy this product again.
As a concealer, I HATE this. I've tried using it uner my eyes and it's dry and cakey and there isn't a good shade for me because I have yellow undertones. However, I use this to conceal my lips before applying lipstick and i LOVE it. My lips are super dry and whatever I use over them always gets in the fine lines. I used to try to use foundation to cover my lips but it dries them out ridiculously and even beige lipsticks don't work well. I smear a bit on my lips and it makes them white/light beige (too light, so it doesnt match my skin tone) but it doesn't matter - since it's white, putting a lipstick color over it shows its true color, you just have to wait for the concealer to dry, but that's quick. It's very creamy and never creates fine lines in my lips. love it! just be careful not to put it outside the lines of your lips because it erases it (like with any other concealer), but putting it just on your lips or lining your lips fixes that problem. wonderful product for that, hate it as a concealer on my face though.
Provides full coverage, very creamy and fairly easy to blend, if you warm the product up on the back of your hand first. I also like the lipstick style packaging, as opposed to a tube with a brush head, which always seem to get gross.
However, my experience has not been positive. I have large pores and acne prone skin, and I'm 90% sure this product is the reason I have huge, painful cysts on both sides of my nose right now,since they are in the exact spots where I was using this concealer. Not necessarily a terrible product, but I personally am chucking this and look for something new.
This is my HG for blemishes!I got it in yellow for dark circles but it doesn't do much for them,but it works great on blemishes=]It's pigmented,creamy,blendable,easy to apply,and lasts all day with primer on top.I use smashbox photofinish just on top of the blemishes,put the concealer on top,blend with my fingers,and set with msfn.Will repurchase=]!
I gave it three stars because of the texture. It's super creamy and rich, which I appreciated. The coverage was alright, but it did not do a great job of covering redness. The colour had an orange-y tinge to it- which I absolutely hated.
I will definitely not repurchase again.
This is actually pretty heavy duty stuff. My best advice with this is to not apply it directly to your face--you'll use too much product that way, it will cake easily and be hard to blend. Use a brush and tap and blend it in. I go as far as smashing it into a small container (however messy that may be!) but you could also just dab the stick straight onto a brush. (And I use the foundation/concealer brush from Essence of Beauty, both ends, and that works well for me.) Really creamy, and gives very good coverage to problem spots.
My only problem with this -- and it's kind of a big one -- is that it does wear off kind of quickly (especially on my t-zone), and it's not so good for touch-ups because it's so heavy. I get a patchy look, and for that reason I can't give this more than 3 stars.
I'm on my third stick of this in six months! I use medium beige and the formula is super creamy and easy to blend. It only costs €6 which is great value. It comes up ten times better if you use it with a moisturiser (I use 8 hour cream) and lasts most of the day. Especially good for patches of red on the cheek/chin area. I took off one lippie because the actual product itself only lasts me about four weeks. TIP! : when it's all gone use a concealer brush to get the rest out theres easily an extra quarter that way! :D Will be getting this again! <3333
There are better concealers out there for the money but this is the only one that I have ever found that is full coverage and stays put all day. It doesn't turn orange on me and it doesn't highlight my acne.
This product is the only one so far that has been able to conceal big pimples easily. i'll admit that its difficult to blend in but thats the problem with most cream concealer as it gives us high coverage.
One stick lasts me for up to 6 months and i uses it on a daily basis!
I have this in a different packaging than the one showed in the picture here, it is a longer and thinner tube with a beigy-peachy top and it has 'cover stick' written on it. i have this in 23 medium beige, the darkest color.
i am currently using this combined with my Max Factor Erace or Clinque's all about eyes in light petal, or just by itself (depending on which foundation i am using, darker or lighter).
in my quest for the perfect concealer i have encountered this one...it is not a HG yet because i have some objections to it, but still...i am surprised with this product.
-it is extremely creamy. i think this is the trick about this concealer, it is not sticky or cakey like others so it blends in immediately with my skin. i have ugly reddish undereye circles and i need a lot of product to cover them up, dunno why they're so stubborn.
-due to the aforementioned consistency, it does not settle into the fine lines around the eyes or nose, and it doesn't show the pores either. amazing.
-it is sooooo blendable!!! amazing for a drugstore product!
-the coverage is good yet towards sheer...i don't know how to explain this. one layer is enough for superficial circles or small spots, like freckles, but for maximum coverage i have to rub the stick into my skin several times.nevertheless, it is VERY natural. compares to a mineral foundation, it doesn't show on my skin and it looks like i am wearing nothing.
-the colors are very versatile. this is the first time i ever see such great colors in concealers...not even my kanebo offers this greatness. all colors have multiple undertones that are not unnatural. most concealers have either a chalky pink undertone, if they are very light, or an orange one if they are darker. this one is...weird. in natural daylight, in strong sun, looks beige with ashy undertones, yet it blends perfectly with my skin, both with and without makeup (i tend to use a darker foundation than my skin). im quite surprised by how this concealer works, it basically matches both my unmade complexion and the one with foundation...!!! kudos!
when exposed to artificial light, whether is my bathroom light or my camera flash it looks amazing, when i pass it across my face i can't even see where i applied it. whooaaa! this has NEVER happened to me before, with absolutely no product, and i have tried A LOT of them.
and about the color, i think this one that i have is very similar to Eve pearl's salmon concealer...it's basically a peachy beige with no trace of orange in it, yet it doesn't have that yellowish or paleness most concealers have. looks and acts like a high-end foundation in a stick.
- it is so creamy that you'll end up using a lot of product, it basically glides on your skin at a cost...the stick will finish very soon. i have used mine three times already and it's very worn out. :((((
-the size of the stick is rather small....it is cheap, that is true, but still...i would have wanted MORE MORE MORE!! it is a great product and im going to stock up for this exact reason...hopefully it's gonna be on sale some day ! (me the cheapo talking!)
i gave it four lippies just because of the creaminess that makes it finish very fast, otherwise i would have given it a hundred...it is truly a very good product that i am super happy with.
