When you wear it, it really shows. Its maybe good for heavy duty coverage like pimples. I stopped using it since it made some areas of my face unnaturally light, even when used sparingly. Hard to spread underneath eyes, even with a brush. Wasn't that thrilled about this product.
It's a bit too cakey. If you need it only for a tiny spot or area, it looks okay, but if you're using it on a larger region of your face or under your eyes, it doesn't look that good. Overall, it's an okay product, nothing special...it's better than their stick concealer though.
This looked great on my arm in the store, but horrible under my eyes the next day. It caked badly and showed off every single wrinkle. This is horrible as an undereye concealer. It provides decent coverage but it's not natural looking. This is only wearable under my foundation, on spots that are not even slightly dry. Even under foundation I find it starts to cake into lines and pores and show through after a few hours.
i didn't care much for this concealer. it was thick and had an odd consistency -- almost sticky -- and was difficult to blend. using a stippling brush and setting with powder helped a bit but i ended up returning the product after a couple weeks anyway. it's pricey for how tiny the tube is -- although i will admit, a little goes a long way. i just really disliked the texture and how it seemed to cling unevenly to my dark under-eyes, not conceal them.
First, let me say what my issue is. I've had really purple under eye circles since middle school and I am now 21. When I was about 15, a boy asked if I did drugs they are so bad! It's a combination of genetics, and I am really fair skinned. I went to my local mall to the Sephora and told the lady I need something to conceal these circles. She put Stila shade A on me, I looked in the mirror and almost CRIED! They were totally gone, give or take she did put a tad too much to were it was a little darker than my normal skintone, but I bought it and at home I put about a pinhead sized dot under each eye and it's perfect. I've always had to hid behind glasses and now I wear contacts!! This has boosted my self esteem and I will defenitly buy it again. Love it!!!!
This product looked great in the store I wanted full coverange n I'm using w the illuminating foundation I really wanted to like it is full coverage n goes on smooth the color was easy to match n looked great but in a couple of hrs it caked up n cresed bad had to take back the next week
Just picked this up. So far so good. Expensive but a tiny bit goes a really long way. It is moist and looks great in my under eye area (I set with Aromaleigh Ultra-Resolution clear powder, MUFE HD dupe). Doesn't accentuate my dry skin. I've also been using the same color on my face and its been working well which makes me happy to be able to use one concealer! I'm a NC20, got the C4. It seemed dark at first but it's actually a perfect match. If I want to brighten on top I use a brightening click pen (boots no7).
I looked around after EL decided to kill Prescriptives for a concealer to replace my Camo Cream. I had used Camo Cream off and on for close to 30 years. Finding a replacement didn't seem possible. On a whim I sampled the Stlia concealer and found it to be a lovely product. It has a thick enough consistancy to cover and is a perfect balance between matte and moist. I used Yellow/Orange Light in the Px and Shade A is a great match. I have already bought a backup.
Update. 4/5/11. I continued to use and love this product. Definitely HG material. I have the most sensitive/impossible skin and it likes this product. I sometimes use it as a concealer and foundation with just a little powder over it.
I like this product. It works great and has my perfect skin colour. It is not too thick and it really conceals my imperfections :) well! I really recommend
I feel like no shade matched me perfectly. And it was way to thick to look natural. It was cakey. and I HATED IT. I wish I would have returned it because it was sooo expensive.
EDIT: I changed my review. I got a little tanner in the summer so now the shade matched. I LOVE THIS NOW. its covers realllyyy welll! and I love it.
