Great concealer. Extremely pigmented. Thick, formulated without mineral oil. Strong yellow undertone to correct dark circles in the color medium. Need the tiniest amount. Small tube but will last forever. I agree, it does crease on its own.. but with the right combination of products, it is the best. First, I apply silica powder from Coastal Scents all over my face including under my eyes. Then I apply a small amount of the concealer under my eyes using my fingers, making sure to blend out the edges. Sometimes I spray my face with distilled water before I apply the concealer because this makes it blend easier and takes care of any dryness I have. After applying, I take a damp makeup sponge and set with the silica powder followed by Maybelline's shine free loose powder in light. I then apply my mineral foundation from the all natural face all over my face and sweep a little under my eyes. If it looks too powdery, I spray my face with distilled water again so everything looks natural. The Silica powder is a must for setting all concealers! Hope this helps anyone still searching for their HG concealer because this combo works perfect for me. Lasts all day. No creasing and never looks cakey.
One of my favorite concealers ever. Works better than so many pricier products and definitely deserves the great reviews. Very creamy and applies like a dream on undereye circles. C2 in MAC and I like to add just a tiny bit of medium to light for perfect coverage.
Amazing coverage. i suffer from really bad under eye circles and this does the job. make sure you moisturize your under eyes, tends to be a bit drying. The shade range is kinda off. Light is too light, medium is too dark. there should be a shade in between the two.
I love this concealer. A LITTLE GOES A LONG WAY. I know that others say that and its true. I used this mostly on my cheeks to cover my acne scars and it covers great. I use it with my LG Balance and Brighten.
Wow, they are not kidding when they say this is full coverage. It can cover anything. I have a burn scar on my wrist after brushing my hand against a very hot oven, and the Real Deal concealer concealed the scar quite well. So it worked wonders on my face. No more dark circles, no more redness, no more blemishes. I normally prefer organic or natural face products, but the Real Deal concealer has a few plant extracts that I love. It really is amazing. It conceals like a dream and stays for hours! I use the Light shade, and it is perfect for my neutral complexion. I'm so happy!
The Light shade is too light and the Medium shade too dark and warm; with the right shade I would love this as an undereye concealer, because coverage and texture is great. I had no creasing at all, and at my age I have texture beneath my eyes! As everyone has mentioned, A DOT is all that's needed, so it's a fabulous price for the amount given. To cover blemishes? Not so much. With only four shades I couldn't find one to match my skin. And honestly, I can get greater coverage on my blemishes and spots with mineral makeup (Alima or BE) applied over a layer of eyeshadow base. Laura, I love you girl, but we need more shades!!!
This is crazy opaque. It's the most opaque, thickest concealer I have EVER tried or used. I used the tiniest little bit I can get out of the bottle, and it covers really, really well. It's perfect to cover little acne scars, you cannot see them at all with this stuff.
I think it only comes in a couple shades, but medium happens to match me perfectly.
I don't think I will EVER finish the package because I use so little, but I would repurchase if I did - it matches me perfectly and covers so well.
This is okay. It is very thick!!! I mean seriously thick, and you only need the tiniest bit. But the problem is that it settles into fine lines horrible! and I use the smallest amount too. but the coverage is a very full coverage so I suggest using on blemishes and face, not under the eyes. Wears very long and I recommend to buy this only as a blemish and redness concealer, and it will last forever.
I purchased a package deal that included the Laura Geller Real Deal Full Coverage Concealer and a few other items. This is not one of my favorite items in the package. I'll start by saying it did cover my dark circles. The main problem for me was it settled in my fine lines, because it's so greasy. I shook it up, but that is difficult, because of the shape of the squeeze tube. A little goes a long way. I probably should have purchased the light shade, because the medium is a little too dark for me. It won't really matter,because I can't wear it anyway.
I REALLY wanted this product to work for me, because there are several things about it that I really like. I'll talk about that first.
First, this product really does provide amazing coverage with a very small amount of product. I have serious dark cirles and discoloration on my lids as well (genetic, not environmental) and normally, I have to layer product like crazy to get enough coverage. But to my surprise, this really did the job with a very sparing amount; just a dab really. For that reason, a full sized container would last a very, very long time, making it an economical choice.
Second, the color was a really good match. Because I am very pale, I always have to select the lightest colors in foundation and concealer, but often, they are too pink. Why do manufacturers think that all pasty girls have pink undertones?? This really matched my warm/sallow coloring very well. That's another feat that was a pleasant suprise for me.
Now to address the cons....
This product is very creamy and doesn't really "set". Because I am 42 and have some fine lines, I prefer a concealer that sets to minimize creasing and settling into those fine lines. BUT...if a product meets all my other needs, I can usually work with it by using setting powder or a primer underneath to address that issue. But this just would not set regardless of what I did. I tried it with the regular spackle, they eye and lip spackle, and several other line filling/priming products I had in my arsenal, to no avail. I tried setting it with Powderflage, Mineral Powder, and the Laura Geller Balance and Brighten. NOTHING worked and it stayed creamy to the touch.
That causes several problems for me, the most obvious being creasing. OMG, the creasing. It was terrible and not at all attractive. That alone is a deal breaker for me.
But also, because it didn't set, it migrated into my eyes (Because of the discoloration of the skin around my eyes, I wear concealer in my lids and also very close to the lashline) and it STUNG like crazy, causing my eyes to tear and run. Also, because of the creamy texture, it was not terribly long lasting and after an hour of wear, it looked as if I hadn't applied concealer at all. Well, except for my fine lines and creases, that is. They still had plenty of product in them.
What a disappointment! As I said, I really wanted this to work, but it wasn't meant to be. I'm glad I didn't buy this product in a full size. At least I don't have to deal with a whopping case of buyer's remorse on top of the disappointment.
