I have been using this concealer for 8 years and counting. I only use it for covering undereyes circle not blemishes.
1) Covers undereye circles smoothly, and really brightens the eye with just one application.
2) I always use it after an eye cream, I am using Kiehl's avocado, so far I did not see any part of the concealer settling into any fine lines.
3) The texture is smooth and easy to blend with sufficient coverage. With just a few strokes of blending (with the correct amount), the bluish dark shadow under your eyes subside. It does not looks cakey, and photographs well. I really hate those cakey look under the eyes. I have a Bobbi brown concealer, its good for hiding blemishes, but makes my eyes look caked up and small as its too opaque for undereyes.
1) When the tube is finishing, its hard to squeeze and might have the chance of it squeezing too much product than needed.
2) I can't think of any.
hope this helps!
I didn't expect this to be good and to be honest, I was half hoping it wouldn't be cos then I'd really kick myself for doling out all that cash in the past on Mac, Bobbi Brown, Lancome, Cle de Peau, Laura Mercier, etc etc.
Turns out, it really is as good as the reviews here claim to be! It's creamy but not so creamy that it creases *ahemBobbiBrown*. It's super smooth and covers dark circles wonderfully without accentuating eye bags. I have to use a brush and then pat it in though, otherwise it doesn't spread as well. I use #2 and the colour suits my NC20/25 complexion pretty well.
I would rate it as just under my fave concealer Becca, but for the low price, it's admittedly a superb buy.
Despite the low ratings i gave on this i would still buy it cause its affordable and it does not cause breakouts on my skin. It gives about a medium coverage. Works more for faint scars. I find myself having to reapply after few hours of usage cause it tends to slip off after awhile due to its liquid/slightly creamy texture. I suggest a light dusting of powder foundation to help it to last longer rather than using translucent powder.
my to-go concealer because it never fails me! lightweight, but opaque enough to conceal dark eye circles and slight blemishes. just dab and pat it on areas that require concealing, then dab some loose powder over it and you're good to go!
definitely will be buying again, onto my 3rd tube now!(:
I absolutely love this product! I was kinda skeptical when my friend first introduced me to this concealer. But it's really good and cheap too! Its texture is really light and it's easy to blend. It's perfect for my undereye. But when it comes to redness around my nose it doesn't really do the job for me and I have to use another concealer for that. But overall it's great for just medium coverage. Definitely an everyday musthave for me!
I really like this product as it's super light and perfect for me. I have purplish under eye circles and it conceal most of it. I also use it to conceal my pimples and it does a good job too!
Not heavy and thick at all.
Overall I love this product and will definitely buy it again.
i bought this purely to use as an under-eye concealer. i have reddish/purplish type circles which are quite obvious and this concealer is a DREAM on. it covers i would say 85% of the dark circle (which is pretty good, as you can hardly ever get a perfect 100% coverage without looking dry/cakey) yet NO creasing, caking, settling into lines, weird movement of color. the texture is very creamy and slightly thick, a dream to put on really as it's not too liquidy/runny. and it's SOOO cheap it's amazing!!! RM26.90 on sale for 9g worth of product. made in China. i use #1 (pinkish/porcelain) and i'm a Dior Nude #020 and Chanel Aqua Vitalumiere B20. i am a concealer aficionado so i know what i'm talking about. i've used Estee Lauder's (Double Wear & Disappear), Bobbi Brown's creamy concealer, Lancome's Effacernes, Chanel's Long Lasting Concealer and Dior's Nude Concealer, and may i say, ZA's is right up there in terms of quality (texture/lasting power) and effect (wear/coverage). i would soooo buy another 3 tubes (or more!) just so i have a tube on stand-by anywhere. at that price and quality, you're silly not to give it a go. continued >>
Coverage: Average, probably works well for faint scars or anything like that but not if you want a medium to full coverage
Staying power: It stays on for a pretty short time and melts away pretty quickly (note: I live in a pretty humid country, so makeup melts at a much higher rate over here)
Texture: It's creamy and lightweight
Shades: I know it's pretty limited and it seem to be more for asian skin as it works well for yellow undertones if I am not wrong. I bought the fairest shade and it seemed to work fine for me (yes I am asian, but I don't have a yellow understone, I'm more of a pink undertone)
Packaging: Usually tubes fare better when it comes to having control over the amount of product you need to use, so there is no problem in this aspect
Type of skin it is suitable for: I believe it is suitable for a normal-combi skin, as it can tend to accentuate on dry/flaky parts. That said, I haven't found a concealer that works well on dry/flaky parts.
I bought this product because I saw how well it worked for others, but sadly, it didn't work for me at all :( I was hoping to get a concealer that had a really good coverage since I do have little red scars and the areas on my face that tend to be slightly redder. Thinking of swapping or selling it as I barely touched it, but it is definitely pretty affordable so if it works for you, good for you!
I've been using this concealer ever since I started experimenting with makeup (almost five years now) and it has never failed me. I've never really entertained the thought of trying out another concealer because this one is really that good!
Coverage is good as it blends and glides well over the skin. Also, it doesn't clog the pores which makes it great for daily use. It also makes the skin look plump and moisturized and gives the face a glowing sort of effect.
The packaging might look small but I can use one bottle for ages and ages!
Only "complain" I have is that the solution might be too thin for some people. It might cover better if it were thicker and more creamy.
But overall, I love this product. More so that it's price is very affordable!
I am going to stock up on this!!!
The 2nd color is perfect for my under eye circles. Great coverage, great staying power, does not settle in fine lines, does not make circles gray, at a super affordable price.
Recommend to all!
