i bought this to try to cover up some redness in my cheeks, but it dries my skin out and also seems to make my skin look kind of rough. i applied my ysl perfect touch foundation over it but it seemed to have lost some of its glow, i think due in part to the concealer. will not be repurchasing.
this is the ONLY concealer that has ever made my skin look great. i don't have problem skin to begin with, but i have semi-oily skin, so concealers NEVER stay on my face longer than an hour. this one provides great coverage, and is very even when applied to the face. a bottle lasted me six months! and i always get compliments on how my skin looks like it is glowing. i seriously love this stuff. its pricey, but because it lasts so long and because of its effect, its worth it.
Ah my HG. I am 24 and already have undereye fine lines and dark circles. This concealer is the only one that is pigmented enough to cover my circles and doesnt cake- well, it does settle into the lines a tiny bit sometimes but honestly I think its only inevitable. I have been using this concealer for two years and for a makeup addict that is picky and always changing products for the fun of it, I must be happy with this one! I am finally satisfied in one area I think! :P
I never actually bought this product, but I tried it at the Estee Lauder counter in my mall. I couldn't even find a color match. All of EL's colors are too dark for me. That's not cool. NC15/NC20 skin.
I have tried numerous concealers (LM, Benefit Bo-ing, MUFE, Bobbi Brown, Prescriptives), and I am totally loving this concealer!! I've been looking for a hg concealer for the longest time, and I think I have found it! I learned that liquid concealers work so much better than cream concealers for your dark circles. Liquid concealers do not settle into your lines. They also do not make you look cakey. This concealer blended into my skin very well. Another great thing is that it stays put all day. I admit, it was still a bit drying for me, but when I applied some eye cream underneath my eyes, it was simply perfect. Another trick I learned is to apply the eye cream and then the concealer BEFORE applying your tm/foundation. It blends in much, much better and it does not look as drying anymore!! I only do this for my dark circles and not for blemishes. You may have to layer twice for your blemishes or possibly use a separate cream concealer to fully hide it, but to me, I didn't have a problem. Overall, this is a really great product. Definitely a keeper!
This concealer does not last 14 hours like it promised, it is more like 6 hours. I am taking one lippie off. It's still a good concealer though.
I like the estee lauder double wear powder foundation a lot & hoped that I could use the concealor too. Saw all the great reviews on here & checked it out. There was no shade that matched Every single shade had pink in it & had no yellow base. The one I tried that was closest to my skin tone did not cover anything. Was not impressed at all.
I am looking for something for my acne scars. So far I have been using the prescriptives concealor but its hard to blend & never sets on my skin no matter how much I pat with powder or anything.
I gues my search goes on.
Its a good so-so concealer, nothing special. Coverage is not the great, and I use a concealer brush to blend around my eyes. I do like the fact that it doesnt get watery when I get teary eyed due to the wind, especially since I wear contacts. It lasts ok on other parts of my face but again, the coverage is very light-medium and I like a medium-full coverage cuz thats the reason why I use a concealer, I want coverage! UPDATE: I wore this under my eyes when I went to the beach, and this stayed beyond my expectations! I have upped all the lippies! I still stand by that it only offers natural light-medium coverage , I still prefer medium to full coverage. While I will use up all the product, I am going to keep searching for a full coverage waterproof concealer.
Their new color formultions are so much better than before. I'm a Fresco in Double Wear foundation and the light/medium concealer works well for me. With this and the D.W. foundation and powder, my makeup is set for the day. The formula is really thin, but very pigmented, so a little goes a long way. I have very dry skin, but this doesn't leave crepey looking wrinkles under my eyes, so it's a keeper!!! Would repurchase again!
I have to update and give it 3 lippies b/c it doesn't last all day if I don't use it with the double wear foundation.
A great long lasting concealor! It really does last ALL day (I use this on scars, redness, not dark circles) and it stands up to my constant rubbing and smearing my face with my hands. I chose Light-medium for my MAC NC35 skin and it works well. For reference, I've tried MUFE full cover, MAC moisturecover, BECCA, Revlon colorstay, just to name a few...
Thank god for MUA because I never would have tried this otherwise. What an amazing concealer. Right now it's my HG. I've tried all the famous ones and some I like quite a bit - Amazing, MUFE, Cle de Peau, etc. However finding one that a) looks natural b) covers my dark circles c) doesn't look dry or tired d) actually lasts on my oily skin e) doesn't require a lot of skin pulling - is always a trick. I find I usually have to sacrifice at least one of my criteria. Yet this one hits all of them. It is a bit dry - however I wear eye cream and (knock on wood) don't have any lines so it looks good and lasts forever. I just think someone with drier skin or wrinkles would find this too dry. Right now though it's amazingly long-lasting and makes me look so much younger and fresher. After I put it on, I don't find myself admiring my concealer - I find myself admiring my perfect skin because it looks that natural.
