I often use this concealer instead of foundation to cover my blemishes and it works great! I like that it has more coverage than most concealers. I have probably repurchased this 5+ times and will continue to do so.
I have only used this product to cover up red/purple scars. I like the consistency and the packaging (like lipstick) makes it easy to apply just to the scar. It works best with moisturizer (in my case, sunscreen) under it and lasts for a good amount of time without rubbing off. It is waterproof and does stay on until I wash it off with soap and water. However, I'd only but again if I could find a color that really matches my complexion. Currently, I have Fair/Light and it is really pink in color.
This is too greasy and doesn't come in enough shades to match my complexion. And when you put powder over it...it turns dark... so in flourescent lighting you look splotchy. And if you happen to go to a bar or club that has a blacklight you look like you have bruises wherever you put the concealor.
Man, I do not like this at all. I heard good things about it here and on Allure Magazine so I thought I'd give it a try, but this did not cover my undereye circles at all!! I was so disappointed! It doesn't last long enough and has horrible coverage, my dark circles still showed through no matter how many time I retouched. The only good thing is that it was creamy and not heavy, but it sucked at its job.
EDIT: I just recently discovered this in my drawer and decided to give it another try. I bumped it up to three lippies because I find that it does a better job when you apply it with a brush. If you use too much, it will get cakey so be careful, coverage is still okay, nothing too special.
I have dark undereye circles and this product does a nice job of concealing them. It has a good consistency and it goes on easily. It's creamy without being oily so it does not crease or disappear. The shade selection is not the best, but overall I think this is a good concealer that covers imperfections fairly well. For the price, give it a try.
I got the white colored stick.
I LOVE this concealer. It glides on pretty smoothly. Usually others cake-on right away [liquid], however, if you apply this CORRECTLY it doesn't. I have really pale skin, so this works pretty good on my skin-tone when I blend it. However, I originally bought this because I wanted to make my skin look even paler and had trouble finding white matte makeup. Originally, I thought a concealer would be too heavy for any other use other than covering blemishes, but this isn't too thick and works perfectly. And considering the price? I give this 5 stars.
This is BY FAR the best concealer I've ever had for the DARKEST UNDEREYE CIRCLES in the WORLD! I have been really blessed with great skin, that is for the most part blemish-free, however, I have horrible undereye circles. I've searched most of my makeup-wearing life for the perfect undereye concealer, and nothing works as well as this for staying long or reflecting light. The medium is a bit light for my olive-toned skin, because I wear bronzer, so I normally put it on, and then close my eyes and sweep bronzer over them to avoid the raccoon-look.
But, I can completely empathize with people frustrated with horrible, dark, circles under their eyes..now, the search for the perfect concealer is over! I will never buy another!
Seriously, this stuff is gross. I'm not usually one to put on concealer and foundation, but one day, I had this HUGE zit on my face...so I ran to the drugstore to buy a quick fix...and this was NOT a quick fix. It feels heavy and thick, like it's literally weighing down your skin. It doesn't blend very well and it's quite cakey. Also, my general rule of thumb for concealers is that it should be medicated...but I was in such a rush that I grabbed the closest thing (Maybelline is generally what I gravitate towards when I need drugstore stuff, like mascara). It's also a pain to wash off--it takes like two thorough washings to feel like it's getting close to coming out of your pores. Disgusting if you ask me--and especially bad if you are using it to hide acne. Lowest lippie rating and I'm never going near that stuff again.
A bit light for my light skin and it coverd the black cirlcles, but not my acne(light beige is for fair skin). I like the texture as it wasn't too thin, but thick enough. Wish it covered my acne. It didn't work any better than that Wet n' Wild cover stick and that was cheaper. I don't know...........I've been using this for awhile now and yes, it covers the black circles, but, well, it's not a great coverage really! And it is a bit thick and it doesn't spread easily. Update:I now use this as a foundation stick because it really doesn't cover anything but minor redness or imperfections. It's messy(and sticky) and not blendable. I think it's irritating my eye area, too. It seems to flake a bit in that area. I will say a positive, though. It does stay put! Another Update:Ditched it for my Rimmel Stay Clean foundation! I get amazing coverage from just that alone, by using the cap and around the lid. Buh-bye concealers! Don't need ya no more!
This particular stick made my skin look cakey when i applied over blemishes. it was very hard to rub in so it would match my skin tone a little bit more. I dont like this cover stick and i wouldn't recommend it to anyone who is acne prone, just people with minor blemish break outs here and there.
