I bought this concealer because it claimed to cover up tattoos and I really needed a concealer to cover one of my tattoos for school/work. I saw a few reviews where this concealer actually did cover up tattoos so I thought I'd give it a try. When I applied it to half my tattoo, it did what it was supposed to do! Half my tattoo pretty much disappeared. I was satisfied. The ONLY thing I dislike about this product is that it doesn't have very many shades. I bought the darkest shade which was Tan and it was still a tad bit light for my skintone but nothing a powder foundation or something can't fix.
This concealer is by far one of the best! It says its a "heavy duty" concealer, and GIRL! it ain't lyin!! The price is awesome! (I think I paid $4.99) The formula is smooth, and blends well. It covers blemishes, dark cirlces and problem areas like you wouldn't believe! It has really long staying power as well! I will always have a back up!
This is a very heavy-duty coverage. I have lots of blemishes and acne scars to cover so I need something full coverage and this definitely is that. You just need a small amount. I use an ELF concealer brush to dab it on the spots that need covering. Then I blend out the edges really well.
I took off one lippie because there are not enough color options and while I use the lightest (and it's the closest to correct for me), it's not exactly right. But I use this under foundation and so the slight color difference is not noticeable.
I have been using this for months now. I sometimes try other ones (because I'm a makeup junkie of course) but I always go back to this one. :)
Retailing for $6 USD exclusively at Walmart locations, this heavy duty concealer does live up to the hype... somewhat. It comes in three shades: light, medium and tan. I chose tan to match my NC40 skin. I've been using this to cover up slight blemishes, redness and under my eyes. A little goes a LONG way with this product. I really like the packaging, which is tube shaped and has a tiny point opening for dispensing. It's easy to overuse this product because it's so heavily pigmented. You only need a teeny tiny dot to cover up both under eye areas.
This product does what it claims to do, cover up areas, even tattoos with about 3 applications for color by patting this on. My gripe about this is the shade selection. It's very poor and tends to lean on the yellow side. This is great for average cover ups, but under the eye area, it creates a gray cast on my skin tone, which has significant yellow olive undertones. I am also tempted to try medium because it seems more salmon colored. I will report back when I pick up that shade. It does work well at brightening the eye area, but to conceal circles, you're going to need a back up depending on your undertone.I don't really have darkness under my eyes, but tired days, I need a brightener. This really does the job for me. Blend-ability is kind of sketchy at best. It's very pigmented as I keep mentioning, so I find a patting motion works best. You might need to use your ring finger to warm up the product slightly to blend it out. I find a natural hair brush works better than synthetic because you want to be able to blend if you're wary about using your fingers on your face. Also, it CAN crease into small fine lines if you use too much. But I had no problems with this holding up in the Florida heat once set with a powder nor creasing issues. I used a primer followed by setting with powder. I would buy this again because I haven't come across anything that works well as this in terms of coverage.
It comes with a mini concealer pencil which works beautifully on your waterline if you're not sensitive. It brightens the whites of my eyes and makes me look more awake. The pencil is very creamy and easy to work with so I can see this working in a pinch for minimal coverage. I wish Hard Candy would sell this pencil by itself, I would definitely buy it for my waterline and makeup bag. I think it's a novel concept. But please Hard Candy, consider more shades! I give this a 3.5 star rating, but for the purposes for MUA, since I can't do that, I would stick with 3 stars. For the price, it's worth a try. A tube of this should last you a fairly LONG time.
Edited to add: I have been using my [damp] beauty blender sponge to apply this and have been getting a more flawless finish. It also makes the concealer blend seamlessly into my skin. I like this a lot more using my BB sponge.
I bought this based on the reviews here. I had to give this a try on my own. Wow, this is super pigmented! Since a lot of reviewers said it wasn't suitable for the under-eye area I applied it on some problem areas on my cheeks and my chin, it covered so well! But throughout the day, I noticed it left my skin really dry and patchy....really weird! I was soo bummed I really wanted this to work out for me!
I decided to give it one more chance but on my under-eye are and of course it covered well but I needed to see if it would start to cake up on me and it showed no signs of that! Yaaayy! I will say that you only need a *tiny* drop and thats all! Nothing more!
This comes in 3 shades, I bought the shade 'medium' which has yellow undertones in it, which I am ok with since I am an NC40. I would say this color works well for me right now but in the summer time I might need to buy the shade 'tan' so I can mix it with the 'medium' shade.
I would definitely buy this again! I really like it!
I was ecstatic to finally found one in my local Wal-Mart. I got this concealer in light. When I applied it, it looked cakey, even though I used a little bit. I know a little goes a long way. This product made me break out on the same day that I applied it...four pimples! Apparently, the first ingredient is petrolatum which is known to clog pores.
After all the glowing reviews. I had to pick up this product from Wal Mart. I wasnt exactly sure what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised with the consistency. I have small creases under my eyes ( thanks genetics even my 4 year old brother & 2 year old daughter have them :( ). It covered up my discoloration but settled into every little crease so im still on the hunt for the perfect undereye concealer. It is amazing at covering up all the hyperpigmentation left from acne & eczema. I love the fact that the have the liuttle pencil. I use it to line my waterline 7 then put UD midnight cowboy liner over it & its my instant AWAKE look. I can't complain about purchasing this product, it may not be my HG concealer but it is worth a try.
This stuff is great!!! Up until I purchased this, my HG was Smashbox HD concealer...this is much much cheaper and just as good. It covers EVERYTHING. Blemishes, undereyes, etc without looking cakey or nasty. I'm NC20 and use the lightest shade. I like the little pencil it comes with for tiny spots but I'll admit, I forget to use it. The real winner here is this creamy tube of concealing goodness!! And you get so much product for $6, its ridiculous! Definitely will repurchase! I use it daily, and like other reviewers have stated, it covers better than even the Kat Von D tattoo concealer.
I bought this concealer in light as a recommendation from another MUA member to cover up my dark circles. I must say I'm impressed so far! The key to applying it though is to make sure the underyeye area is well moisturized and use the littlest amount possible. I used to blend with my fingers but with this concealer, I find it is more natural looking to use a concealer brush. Another key to making it not cake is to not powder on top of it. I used Lancome Effacernes before this and for the money, this is a better bargain and I actually think the coverage is better.
I have really bad Cystic acne along my jawline and this covers it up GREAT! When i say a little goes a long way i meant it! It covers up the redness of my acne and i only need a very small amount. I still have more than half the tube and bought it a couple months ago. Not to mention the price! 6$ at Wal*Mart! It is very thick but if you need the full coverage i definately recommend this concealer.
