Why I like the yellow one, its a very easy to find, affordable corrector that will last a long time since you use very little at a time. Ite water resistant, I don't need it for swimming but for me this means its very long wearing, stays put. The finish is satin matte on me. Here is a good way to apply it for a natural look, I put some onto a clean surface then use a fine brush to only get a tiny bit on. Then apply to any red spots/areas, AFTER I have done all of my other makeup but before setting with powder. If its obvious after dotting on, pat and your fingers warmth will correct that. I don't use this under my eyes but I have very, very, dry under eye skin. This is a cost effective, now often overlooked drugstore staple that can save some a lot of money while offering very good coverage and a covered but still fresh, non-cakey look. This has almost the same wear as Dermablend concealer once set with powder then spritzed lightly with water. I find the medium while not advertised a correcto, is quite peachy, not common for ds concealers. The peach tone is very good for brightening other areas, and for those with normal to oily skin for under eye circles. Use eye cream/spf first, then only use a bit on a concealer brush (not the teeny one for spots, wider, flatter, and pat on just the darkest areas. The light is also very good for darker spots. They all mix well togeether so if the product agrees with you, especially if you are newer to makeup and just building your own personal kit, you can have a palette of correctors, concealers, that work well for a very small investment and so much product for the price. One thing, the green is touted for redness but can look ashy if you're not vert adept with such correctors. I personally like yellow correctors for redness as many others so too.
I got this in green since my under eye circles are mostly red, and I have a lot of redness all over my face that i wanted to try this on. This concealer feels really drying, and it's hard to blend, and under your eyes you end up pulling and tugging because patting it in isn't really an option. It doesn't cover very well and it wears off pretty fast. I didn't really like this at all.
I simultaneously purchased both this concealer and the Covergirl CG Smoothers Concealer strictly for comparison, since both of these concealers are very similar in function and appearance.
I found that this is a really good concealer; I actually like this one better than Smoothers.
While Smoothers only comes in 6 shades, this one comes in 8 shades that really vary. (I like how it comes in a yellow and a green for correcting dark circles and redness.) I'm NC30 with strong yellow undertones and Medium Beige is a really good match. It's actually yellow-based, unlike Smoothers, which only comes in really pink shades.
The consistency of this concealer is really creamy and smooth, just like Smoothers is. Its creaminess allows for easy application and blending. I find that applying with my ring finger works best. Just gently pat it on, and blend blend blend. You don't need to use a concealer brush. You don't even need to set it with a powder.
The coverage is the same as Smoother's coverage. They both give medium-to-full coverage, which is sufficient to cover up most of my dark acne marks (the main reason why I wanted a concealer in the first place was to cover up my marks). It doesn't cover up my most prominent marks, but it does a good job of making them less prominent. I find that Smoothers settles into the fine lines under my eyes more than this one does. This concealer settles into fine lines too, but not as much as Smoothers. It does cover up the dark circles, however because it settles into fine lines, it's not really that good for dark circles.
The price was $5 at Rite Aid, which is an awesome deal! Totally worth it!
REASONS WHY I LIKE THIS BETTER THAN COVERGIRL CG SMOOTHERS CONCEALER:
-Available in more shades.
-Available in correcting shades, like yellow and green.
-It's actually yellow-based, not totally pink.
-Comes with more product.
Would I repurchase? Yes.
This concealer is pretty cheap. I use it to conceal my dark eye circles and it does cover up a bit. It is not very easy to blend though and neither is it flawless. I don't like the packaging of this product because it makes it look like something from a 2 dollar store.
Overall, this product does the basics of a concealer without flawlessness but what can you expect from a cheap product?
I love this and have been using this since high school. That is about 10-12 years. It's on the thicker side and creamy and full coverage. I have very dry skin and this glides on nicely and covers up any blemish or dark spot. I have tried many other concealers but they are usually too light in coverage, too drying or the shade is off. I don't find this drying and I have super dry skin.
I have been using this stuff for stage, since high school.
For those who find it to drying...I can definitely see that it would be drying for every day use, But for stage,once you begin to perspire....it's dry nature is a plus.
The color choices are limited, but I have seen many make-up artists make custom blends from them.
I also use this for daily use, but I blend it with moisturizer before applying.
Ugggg!!! SUCH a waste of money. I paid $5 it and it was not worth it! I think it's a good idea and I do like the packaging bug the product if awful!!! It's cakey and dry and look horrible on. As well, it is extremely unblendable and when I try to put it on, I can feel myself pulling at my skin which is not good!!! Honestly, I dont think it was worth the $5 I paid for it.
After trying various concealers over the years, from high-end to drugstore, I always go back to this. I've been using it since high school so let's just say several years.;) It leaves a great opaque finish which is perfect for my type of under-eye issues. It is a touch drying so you need an eye cream under it or a basic moisturizer. It lasts all day, all night. Amazing staying power. The price has gone way up but still, it's cheap compared to other concealers out there. I love it and it will be a staple for me forever.:)
I bought this for 7$ at walmart and I used this for about a year and have gone through one and half for my blemishes. But I have recently started using a mac paint pot in soft ochre( I know weird but it works) for a concealer undereye and zits. And I now realize how cakey, dry and awful this is. You would never be able to use this under your eyes and honestly the coverage is not great. Last power not great either. Since this was so dry I decided to melt this with my blow dryer into a little container and see if it would make this product any creamier; not at all! The packaging is not very hygenic at all but it is good for on the go. Not repurchase it again.
its the first cover stick concealer i bought . it does cover my pimples very well .
