this concealer is great! paired with the foundation, it really makes your skin look almost-flawless. just make sure you don't let the applicator touch any blemishes; use your (clean) finger or sponge.
its not a bad concealer for under foundation but i bought it in the hopes of using it only with the almay clear complection pressed powder i need alternatives for the summer time when liquid foundation is just too much but i was really dissapointed at the finish it made my skin dry and it also amplified the dryness it made the flakes stand out and the colour selection is horrible theres only three. i bought the lightest shade and its still too dark for me. and as for its effectiveness to clear acne i didn't see an improvent from what i was using before (revlon colourstay concealer) overall not impressed wouldn't buy it again
I had such great hopes for this product after reading the reviews from other acne-prone women. Unfortunately, I was disappointed and will not re-purchase this product. My primary complaint is the limited color ranges available that excludes women of color. The medium that I bought is too light for me and I feel as if I just wasted my money.
Even if Almay made a color for me, the formula is too thick for my tastes. This also contains 1.0 % salicylic acid which is too strong for my face. My previous concealer contained .05% which was much less drying.
After reading MUA ladies' review on this product, I bought two shades of this concealer ( light/medium and medium). Medium matches me perfectly! Today I actually skipped my foundation and only wear the concealer and some blotting powder. I like the texture and how it doesn't irritate my acne. I like the coverage as well since I barely see any of my acne scars!
Give a try if you have acne-prone/acne scar skin!!
omg i love it this stuff really works i think it works even better than my acne spot treatment stuff! it covers really good too
Thank you thank you thank you MUA for recommending this product! Best purchase I've made in along time. This stuff covers, blends, and heals like you wouldn't believe. I'd been having such a complexion problem, and this stuff took care of it. Yay!
EDIT: I am taking off 2 lipsticks because this product barely lasted me 3-4 weeks. There just wasn't enough in the tube for the price. And I HATE that it's a wand applicator because I have some left in the tube I can't get to. Seems dumb to me. It's a good product but bad design. And maybe a bit of a rip-off.
Well i actually bought this product on accident.
I dont have any acne at all!
i was in a hurry and needed a concealer and
i just grabbed this one.. good thing i got the
right color. and i used it the next day exept
in the WRONG spot. i used it as an under-eye
concealer it is just had dry spots every where.
then i gave up on it for a while and then i decided
to used it again exept for my freckles. it worked
genius stays on looong and lasts maybe since i
have quite oily skin the dryness of the sylacic acid
kept my skin from getting oily. i seriously cant live
without it now its #1 soo far for me. =D
but i definetly wont use it as a undereye concealer again!
I like the coverage of this concealer and it applies quite smoothly (I have somewhat oily, breakout-prone skin that dries out easily), but it just doesn't seem to match my skin tone. I have very fair/pale (neutral-shade) skin, and the "light" shade seems somewhat dark and orange-y on me. I still use it over blemishes sometimes, but I usually have to temper it with a lighter concealer to make it blend with my skin tone.
I would recommend this product. I usually use MAC Select SPF 15 Foundation which was $25.00 and worked pretty good and it was too expensive for a small bottle so I switched to Almay. Overall, its a okay product. It does its job. It conceals. It sometimes gets dried though. I would maybe buy this product again. I'm thinking about buying Neutrogena concealers.
Love this concealor. I always used expensive department store concealors before because I was really afraid of breaking out. But when I saw the good reviews for this product on MUA, I decided to try it out. I got it for sale and I think it is amazing. So easy to put on and so easy to blend. I'm not 100% sure if it actually heals my blemish but it really covers really well. And its sooooo creamy and light that its hard to put too much. I can even wear it without any foundation over it because the color matches so well which I find soo difficult with most concealors. I will definitely buy it again!
