pretty amazing! :) I havent' written a review about any product ever but i feel i should for this MUFE concealer! i got this as part of a present sometime last week and it's pretty good on my blemishes. This covers way better than any other concealer i've used before and hasnt given me any breakouts! that's saying alot cos in many twentyish years i have used at least 50 concealers from various brands.
This does have a tendency towards dryness so what i'd recommend and what works for me is to first apply moisturizer, wait a bit, pat it in gently and then a thin layer of organic aloe vera gel. that makes the concealer go on smooth.
Finally, use a good brush like BE concealer or bobbi brown concealer brush and tap very lightly and blur the sides. Staying power is pretty good would say 9.2/10 and color range accurate.
I didn't think this product was that amazing. Definitely not full coverage. I didn't think it lasted very long and it didn't blend well. TOOO expensive to be this unimpressive. It also was really cakey is you used to much, which was inevitable since I didn't get the coverage I wanted.
Expensive but the coverage is amazing so I don't have to use a lot. I've already had it for a few years and still have a lot left. Sometimes I use this concealer as foundation. It spreads really easily and doesn't dry too fast so I can still blend it out. I recommend it.
**Please thumbs up if this was useful. Thank you.**
Would recommend to others, but will not repurchase personally as I prefer to roll without concealer.
Overall rating: 4/5
Good packaging, hygienic tube with screw on lid. Comes in 12 different shades. Not fragranced but slight smell. 0.5oz/15ml
My shade is #4 in Full Cover, NARS Gobi, MAC NC15, MUFE117. Normal skin.
#4is a tad dark, but still fits. I have tried 3 other MAC concealers and Full Cover (FC) is much better than all of them. It is in liquid form, but once it dries, it stays put. Very pigmented, covers well. For me it easily covers broken capillaries and redness around the nose and it is so-so for covering under eye circles. Staying power is quite good, although this varies from day to day (cause is probably my skin, for some reason).
It's an above average concealer, but that being said, I think there are better options out there. You get a good amount of product (0.5oz/15ml) for your money, the packaging is handy and hygienic. If you are able to colour match yourself, I would suggest checking this out, but personally I will not be repurchasing this- I am just not a concealer fan.
I use this on days when I don't want to fuss over my concealing phase of my makeup routine. The squeeze tube is perfect for finger application and find that I can distribute the perfect amount to treat a pesky spot on one dot, then tap to blend of course.
There are better out there but this one is not bad.
I love this concealer. I tried other brands, but didn't find one that worked for me. I have hyperpigmentation from past acne and am on a retinoid that dries me out. I use this over my Absolue Foundation from Lancome (moisturizing/full coverage) and it works wonderfully. I tried the HD Foundation, but it did not work with my dry skin. As far as color matching goes, I had poor luck and got the best match myself. I am around an NC25 (Ecru 15 in Absolue) and shade 6 is perfect. Good amount of yellow in that shade. I have 5 and 7 ( was matched with those and shade 10, but HAD to return that - too dark!). I'll probably use 5 for under the eyes (maybe mixed with eye cream) and we'll see about 7. I highly recommend this concealer.
This is a fabulous product. It really covers up a lot, and you can use it for sheer or heavy coverage, depending on how you apply it. The salesgirl selling it to me, though, used it as an allover foundation which I do not recommend, as it looks quite fake and heavy. A dab mixes really well with moisturizer and a dab of highlighter, for a really pretty tinted moisturizer. I also tend to use this to cover the "discolored" areas- a dab below eyebrows, in corners of eye and below eyes, in the creases/corners on either side of nose, chin, then dust with powder to finish, then applying the rest of my makeup for a great, naturally-great-skin kind of look. If you blend well, this stuff gives very natural looking, lasting coverage. The price is also quite reasonable, considering you only need a dab of this stuff to do the job. Iíve repurchased a few times and will continue to do so.
I had mixed feelings about this product until I figured out I wasn't applying it right. For reference, I have somewhat clear skin, with the occasional few red spots.
1. I like the clear plastic tube. You can squeeze to get the last bit out, you can see how much is left, and you won't break it. Very easy to toss in your purse for touch ups.
2. Color selection is pretty wide. I personally could have probably gone with shade #6, but #7 is fine and will be a great match in the summer.
3. Covers well if you apply it right.
4. You really only need a tiny tiny bit.
1. Your skin needs to be smooth for this to work well. It can be red or brown or whatever, but not flaky or rough. It doesn't stick to rough skin, it seems.
2. It's expensive and only available online or at Sephora stores (Sephora at Jc Penney doesn't even have this and I think it's a pretty basic staple of the MUFE line).
3. This doesn't have the staying power I expected. Using foundation underneath (I use L'Oreal Magic Smooth Souffle) definitely helps it stick, but for days when I don't want to bother with the whole routine, this concealer doesn't really last all day.
TIP: Do NOT "swipe" this on, either with your finger or a brush. I tried patting it on with fingers, that's also a no-go. Here's how I've finally had success making it look natural and keeping the coverage. Squeeze a TINY dot on the flat of a concealer brush. Use the brush to dot it on all the spots your need covering (use another dot of concealer if you run out). Then use that flat side of the brush to pat the concealer into your skin, patting ON the spot you need covered. Then pat gently around it to blend the concealer in. Let it dry while you move on to your other makeup tasks, then if you need another layer, repeat the process. This works well for dark areas.
This is HG. Like other mention, it is spendy but it will last FOR-ever! I have had mine about a month and it still looks full. I can use a dab the size of a piece of rice and cover about 5 different scar spots on my face. I am NC25 and wear a 6
It goes on creamy and sets nicely. The coverage is AMAZING-on "good skin" days I can wear just this with my moisturizer and look flawless. It lasts all day, doesn't oxidize on my oily face and feels weightless. The tube is nice too because you can control the amount that comes out depending on the pressure. This with my MUFE Mat Velvet makes me look liek I have flawless skin. Amazing product.
A TRUE GODSEND. This is an amazing concealer - I pretty much constantly have either breakouts or purplish fading acne scars on my cheeks and chin (horrible hormonal breakouts...ugh), and I just spackle this over it and *poof*! Flawless skin. And I mean flawless, without looking obvious or cakey.
I used this today and stepped back from the mirror and was sort of in awe at how perfect, even, and almost "airbrushed" my skin looked. And as sort of a weird added bonus - it's pretty dry and tacky, and I feel like it somehow dries up any breakouts that I have, but it never emphasizes any areas of peeling.
Ladies, do yourself a huge favor and buy this RIGHT NOW. Yes, I know it's pricey, but that little tube will last a loooooooooong time and it's well worth the investment. Make Up For Ever is a phenomenal company that really knows how to make quality cosmetics.
