Definitely my HG concealer!! I've been on a constant quest to find the perfect concealer - one that doesn't make my already somewhat oily skin oilier, one that doesn't break me out, one that covers redness and old acne scars, and one that doesn't look cakey or obvious. Well, this really is it! I love the tube packaging - I squeeze a teeny bit onto my finger and apply it to my face using a concealer brush, although it's equally as easy to just use your fingers to apply it. It may seem like a tiny tube, but a little really does go a long way. It's incredibly smooth, and gives sheer to medium coverage, which is usually all I need, but if anything, I just put another layer on any red spots. It lasts all day and doesn't get cakey or make it obvious that I'm wearing concealer - it literally melts into your skin! As you can probably already tell, I will definitely be repurchasing this.
For reference - I'm a shade b, which works really well on my semi-pale winter skin, and I'll probably have to go up a shade as I start to tan in the summer.
This is a great concealer for the under eye area and I also enjoy using this on pimples. For reference I have dry skin with a slightly oily T-zone. I just use my fingers when applying this and it's very easy to apply and blend in. The colour matching was great as well, I'm an NC20/25 and I'm a "C" in this concealer. It blends so well, that if I'm really lazy to put on my MMU for the day I can just wear this to conceal my under eye area and go out the door. This product also wears very well, it doesn't cake, and if it's raining outside I can typically just set it with my MSFN and it won't budge. My only qualm with this is really the fact that it's quite expensive for the tube, but I only use a little each time so I'm sure it'll last quite a while before I'll have to buy another.
Too thick, hard to blend. I ended up chucking it out as I could do nothing with it.
I think this is a great concealer for under eye circles and when I use it around my eyes I never have any problems with it creasing or looking dried or cakey. But for me that's the only use for this product, because when I try to use it to cover two small scars on my forehead, it doesn't cover them completely. If I apply more, it does end up looking dry and cakey. I apply it after moisturizer and I've tried using it under foundation and I've tried using it on top of foundation. I'll most likely continue to use this for my dark circles but I'll be looking for a different concealer for more buildable medium to heavy coverage. (Any recommendations feel free to message me!)
Love this concealer ladies. It does wonders for my dark circles. I wear in shade b, which is lighter than my skin tone, as a concealer should be. Not only does it lighten up the dark circles I find it provides camouflage for the persistent little bags under my eyes. It is very thick and concentrated, moisturize well under the eye first and you only need a bit. I apply with my BE concealer brush and then blend with my finger. I am dry in the winter and have no issues with this creeping into dry areas, looking creasey or creepy. I actually think it is a bit moisturizing. Anyway I love it. I got a sample from Sephora first and plan to purchase on my next visit.
i really dont like it its too thick and obvious when i put it under my eyes,it does cover up but i look so old because it makes all the lines visible..i cant wait to finish this and buy something better
I love the creamy texture of this, it goes on smoothly with a concealer brush and blends in wonderfully. I just squeeze out a teeny tiny amount on the back of my hand and apply with a brush after my tinted moisturizer. It works perfectly to cover dark circles under the eyes and any imperfections you may have. The little tube has lasted me like 3 years (another plus is since you squeeze it out of the tube it is sanitary) and I still have enough to last at least 6 more months. I will be repurchasing this one!
I originally got this as an undereye concealer - boy, was that bad thinking! This is way too thick to ever be useful around the eye, at least if you like to stay away from caking and deep lines. However, it's great as a spot concealer for blemishes. I use it on any red pimples or blemishes, and it covers really well. Just keep the application concentrated on the spot. I don't find that it dries or looks cakey, in fact I can touch it up over my foundation throughout the day if I really need to. It's my favourite concealer for blemishes, but I keep it away from my eyes.
The color match good and it is a light/medium yellow tone with a slight peachy tint to it. The concealer is heavy and creamy and feels kind of greasy and it is shiny. Because of the talc (2nd ingredient) it actually dries out and accentuates any dryness of loose flakes of skin. It is not easily blendable and it is a heavy concentrated color. You have to use it sparingly and only on unbroken skin and best on normal to oily skin tones that does not suffer from dry skin or patches trying to cover large pimples and redness. I would not use this again and returned it. My skin is both super oily and has flakes because of the retinoids i use. It is a decent purchase but i have something that works better at not accentuating dryness but this COVERS really well.
I am a total Stila Lover but i must admit this is not my favorite product from them. It goes on quite cakey and not as creamy as i would've liked. It will definitely work better if you have non-dry skin/patches. Alright concealer in general but not my HG concealer.
P.S. This deserves a lippy for its fabulous and easy to use packaging!
