This is my updated review: since i dont really use this before when first purchased because i got the wrong shade, i got the ivory shade which is too white for me, i found a good use to this one! Try using it as an eyeshadow base, it works very great for that! Spread a small amount on your eyelids and blend with your fingers. It will definitely brighten your eyeshadows even the most unpigmented eyeshadows will pop up when using this as a base!
I have used the yellow one, it works great for dark circles... It can be a little dry, and you have to spread it quickly, but it has good sataying power. I like the package a lot because I think it's very higienic.
I have used this concealer for years and absolutely love it! Provides very good coverage. I use this to cover up my dark circles and blemishes. I use the shade Ivory 1 for my fair skin, one shade lighter than my MK Foundation in Ivory 2. Helps make my skin look flawless, my HG concealer!!
I love this stuff! I never thought I'd like MK products but I'm sold! Goes on well and last all day.
When i first felt the concelear i thought it was a bit thick and wasnt going to look good on my skin but i actually like it alot! I have been so frustrated with past concealers that didnt cover at all and this is the first that ive found that does. I work and go to college full-time so dark circles come along with that and this concealer covers them perfectly and best of all DOES NOT fade.
Maybe i just got the wrong shade but, this product is way too yellow. It wont blend in with my skin. Not only the color but, the texture looks cakey. still looking for my hg concealer.
So i bought this product from my Mary Kay consultant because It was Oprah's favorite recommended consealer or so, and I needed more than just my foundation to cover up all my acne spots anyways, so I gave it a try. First, I tried it on top of my foundation because that was how I was instructed to use it, but the color is too light and if i try to blend it in with my skin tone, the coverage dissappears! So I used it under my foundation and it makes my skin so flakey it's embarassing!!! The coverage doesn't last either. Even after an hour or two, I can already see my spots reappearing, it's horrible. The only good thing is it didn't seem to break me out.
Cons: Doesnt Last long
Makes skin dry and flakey
Color doesnt match well or blend well
Will NOT repurchase
I absolutely LOVE this concealer. I have been addicted to Mac Cover Select out of the squeeze tube, and it have proved to get rancid fairly quickly and chunk up like a paste. I used mac with the mac concealer brush and it was going on like paste- very disappointing. It was stickig to my pores and making them look HUGE.
Anyway, I came across this product on here, and after reading my reviews, I called my facialist who happens to be a Mary Kay rep, and she had samples in every color. I went and I ended up being a Beige 1.
This product goes on so smooth, and doesn't come off when I put on my foundation, and if I skip foundation, it doesnt stick to my mineral powder. If I skip both, you can't even see it! My pimples look not even there, and I get scabby pimples because I squeeze and dry them out. This product works Amazingly, strong coverage, blends well, stay forever, doesn't cake, melt, or stick to makeup. I reccommend this to anyone in the market for a better concealer, because your face only looks beautiful if you start with a great concealer! I also happen to love the tube, I put a little amount on my hand, and use my fingertips. Any left over, I suck back into the tube. There is no applicator or germs to get into, or bacteria to grow, like a tub of concealer.
This is the only concealer I have ever used that actually did it's job without feeling too think or too oily, and caking like clay. It's very important you apply it correctly though or else you will just smear it around. If you just dab it on with a applicator sponge it lasts all day. I use it on trouble spots and then dust mineral powder over my whole face and I dont even need foundation. It lasts for hours and its great when your in a hurry.
I was so excited to try this product!! I got it and the color was too light, but I was too lazy to return it so I make do. I put it on my under eye circles and really red areas and left for the day. At the end of the day it had settled into the little lines under my eyes, and i could still see the dark circles. It seemed to have rubbed off on the other areas too. Another note: this emphasizes dry areas!!! So for under eyes that are completely smooth give this product a try!
