Now I could finally show off my beautiful high cheekbones that looks flawless because of this concealer. No shame!
EDIT: This concealer oxidises on my skin so it gets too dark (and I bought nr. 1) and orange-like! I've stopped using this.... However, I use MUFE HD concealer and that one covers even more than Full Cover and does not change color!
For years I have used all MAC concealers and concealers from Dior, Chanel, Bobbi Brown, Aveda, Revlon and Clinique.
I bought this one the other day and wow! It covers perfectly! Im NW10-15 and nr. 1 is great for me.
I only use this for school, let it dry and just put some bronzer on and masqara and for evening I only wear this and some powder and it covers so well that I skip the foundation!
Although it is expensive this will be the best buy you will make in cosmetics!
I was in the need of an under eye concealer that would last throughout the day. I came across this in Sephora for $30 so i decided to try it. Its a little dry so it was thick and slightly difficult to blend. It provided full coverage but It looked a little cakey. I was willing to deal with it if it lasted the entire day. Sadly, it did not. So back to the drawing board. Will not repurchase
I can't speak to the "full cover" of this concealer because I don't have dark circles. However I use just a tiny bit under each eye more or less to brighten the area and it works great for that. Its not cakey and doesnt accentuate fine lines. I would say because of the consistency that it would be worth a try if you're plagued with dark circles or need more coverage for little imperfections. The only reason I wouldnt buy it again is because of the price and I think I can find something just as good for less $$$ that would suit my needs.
Not full cover, but pretty darn good. I can't use the thick concealers like Bobbi Brown or Benefit's Boing because they just end up accentuating the wrinkles around my eyes, yet I need something fairly industrial strength. This seems to fit the bill pretty nicely. It's thicker than your usual concealer, yet not thick. It blends like a dream and doesn't goop up in my little lines. It's working well for me right now!
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.
