This is my one true love! I use it as I need it on blemishes and stuff. I love that its dry (covers and stays better), and that there are two colors. Use it with MAC brush #316. Sometimes i mix them, and sometimes I use one or the other (this depends on the state of my skincolor-tan, fading, normal) Its a little expensive at first, but I've had it for literally 5 years (don't know how good it is to have 5 year old concealer but it hasn't changed a bit so...yeah)...and theres still about a third of it left. So in probably a year and a half, when it runs out, I'll definitely buy it again!
This concelaer is Great! I actually wanted to give this product five lippies in term of the staying power and the coverage it can offer. This works like a dream for anyone who's desperated of having scar, severe rocasea or freckle. With the wax texure it is and high pigmentation of this SC , you can "conceal" those facial problems almost completely! so this is the good news for girl who has the brown spot around cheekbone like myself (I use this in SC4, Me NC30-35, LM in sunny beige, Chanel in 30, asian, yellow undertone). OK! girls the good news announced :D lol so now it's time for bad news that's why i need to take one lip off. While I've been using this secret camouflage for 1 month and a bit more I have to experiment hard how to make it work for me Ya! that warming, mixing two colors processes, it drives me nuts! lol honestly, you need to practice alot until you can get along with this product (unless you already have talent and so skillful about cosmetics which i don't :P). Each the day i still get the different result someday look wow! flawless all imperfection just vanished Yeah! but someday this causes me look so fake, too thick and even worse than my original skin....so please bare in mind that don't use it too much nor too less, try to get the decent amount (more into little) which is perfect also you shouldn't warm it too much or too harsh! otherwise it will fade and that will not enough to cover anything then you will have to keep re-applying finally, the ugly result you will get :(. FYI i use LM secret camougflage brush which personally, i like it very much to pair with this concealer even i think there's some other cheaper brush out there that can work just the same, OK! so if you are ready for the practice, let's go and eventually it might become your HG concealer for scar and freckle :)
The best concealer I've found. A little goes a long way, with great coverage on any random spot or blemish. I've found it helps to use a small, stiff concealer brush and blend the two colors before applying to skin (I just blend on the back of my hand until I've mixed the right color). Love the mirrored compact - this goes everywhere with me!
I got jazzed about this product afte reading LM's book Flawless Face. Unfortunately, I think Secret Camouflage is unnecessary and aimed at someone with more of an artistic touch than me. It made my skin look very cakey. Not something I need for everyday use, so I'll be returning it.
Eh I had high hopes for this, but was disappointed. I love the idea of using 2 shades to mix the compact is very nice. Unfortuately, I need undereye coverage & lots of it & this formula was too hard to work w/. I felt like I had to tug alot at my undereye area to blend this at all & when it was on, you could see every single wrinkle/line (& I'm only 21!!) This also looked cakey on blemishes. If this works for you, it's a great value - you use very little product each time. Alas, the search continues :(
This is my HG concealer. I don't need any undereye coverage yet, so this is sufficient to cover any random blemishes or redness. It is a dry, oil-free formula and very good for oily skin...it doesn't budge or slide! And I like the fact that it comes in a compact with a mirror, and contains two shades that you can custom blend.
I use No. 1 on my NW15 skin and it matches perfectly.
I have searched far and wide for the perfect concealer. I needed one to not only cover my dark undereye circles, but to hide any occasional blemishes that may pop up. The best part is I have had this for about 6 mos. and haven't even made a dent in it yet! It literally lasts forever so it is worth the initial cost up front (which is also why I knocked the number down on the price because it does last longer). While this works perfectly on blemishes, I found it hard to cover my dark undereye circles. It seemed like it didn't matter how many layers I applied, there would always be a slight shadow. I found the Tarte Eraser covers blemishes and undereye circles completely for me and I prefer it over this one. This would be a good concealer for those who want to hide blemishes and very slight undereye circles as it has a drier consistency and does not sink into fine lines.
This is it!!! The product I have searched for my whole make-up-wearing-years. I'm very fair with redness and some melasma, and this covers up my problem areas with a very natural finish. Plus it lasts all day on my normal-to-oily combo skin without pooling or looking caked on. A little goes a very long way, so that justifies the price with me. Used along with the Tinted Moisturizer and foundation powder, I have a flawless complexion/look in just minutes.
Seriously, you have to follow the directions for this product or you aren't going to get the fabulous results that this product can give. You really need a small stiff taklon brush- I use the Japonesque retractible lip brush. I mix one swipe on the small pan and three swipes on the large pan to cover around five blemishes. I wouldn't really call the product dry once it's been warmed on the skin, but it does significantly highlight any dryness or flakiness, so I highly recommend exfoliating once or twice a week and using it on freshly moisturized skin. It also blends much nicer on top of tinted moisturizer, and setting it with powder gives it fantastic lasting power. This product is worth experimenting with, especially if you have persistent acne- this is by far the best thing I've used to cover it.
I am reviewing shade SC-2 and my foundation shades are Rose Ivory in the Silk Crème and Blush Ivory in the Liquid Foundation. This is my HG concealer. I use it with the secret camouflage brush, but I do not think the brush is that special and any firm concealer brush would do. Each Secret Camouflage comes with 2 colors in it. I swipe my brush twice in the larger shade that contains more yellow and once in the smaller shade that contains more pink. This is more than enough to use on my entire face. I start by dabbing a small amount on each spot and then going back over them and blending. It is great for coverage everywhere except under the eyes. The concealer has a very firm consistency and I suspect it is not gentle or light enough for the under eye area and it will settle into ANY lines there. I highly recommend this product (a rating of 5) for everywhere else on the face because it gives great long lasting coverage. The price rating of 3 is because at $28 it is well worth the price, it has lots of product. The packaging quality of 5 is because the compact is nice and sturdy (I have dropped it a few times). I will repurchase although after 5 months of use it wont be anytime soon, because I am nowhere near finishing this product.
