This concealer is one of the best I've tried. I have very bad cystic acne and have been using Bare Minerals Matte Foundation (as well as the warmth, blush, and hydrating mineral veil) for the past 5 years. While I love Bare Minerals products, I needed more coverage for my growing acne issue - it seemed nothing would cover my blemishes. Bare Minerals helped even out my skin tone, but if I tried covering my pimples w/ the foundation using the concealer brush it turned into a cakey, very noticeably make-up, mess. This product was the first concealer the lady at Sephora tried on me after expressing my needs for better coverage. I fell instantly in love. The color blends perfectly into my skin!! Sometimes it takes multiple layers to cover very dark spots, but it doesn't feel (or look for that matter) layered or cakey at all! Also, I haven't noticed any further breakouts in the area that I use the product. This is the newest staple in my makeup bag!
This is the bombdizzle I use it at the triangle from the sides of my nose to under my eyes, if that makes any sense lol. I put a little on the back of my hand and with my ring finger blend then I set with MAC transparent setting powder I used this on top of my foundation to brighten up. Love this.
This is one of the worst concealers I have ever used. It covers nothing. It pours out of the tube and the formula doesn't stay mixed, so it is way too liquidy and oily. Tried it under my eyes and it creased within minutes. Absolutely awful product.
Very good concealer. Creamy, but not too, and a little goes a long way. Blends beautifully and looks natural. Does what it says it will do, conceals!
Talk about a great product. I never thought I'd need concealer until I started to break out a little. Made a trip to Sephora and discovered this little miracle tube. All I need is a little bit to cover up the few blemishes that I have and that's all I used...no foundation or anything. Not too sure about the HD part though, I think it's just a name trend but other than that I recommend. I used the dark and it was a perfect match for beautiful skin tone. If you're skeptical about it just give it a try, I'm certain it'll change your mind.
It's an ok concealer. I use it mainly to cover dark circles and i find it does settle into fine lines (which I do have, even though I'm 16, help me). It's also not the best for dry skin. I have dry skin around my nose and if I tried to use this to cover up redness there, it shows up any flakiness or uneven texture. My dark circles aren't the worst in the world and it covers them up reasonably but if you're looking for serious coverage I wouldn't choose this, or I guess you'd have to do multiple layers. I got it in the fair option and the colour's great - matches my skin tone perfectly, as I have found for all the Smashbox products I've used. I wouldn't buy it again as it's just not right for me. I'm thinking for covering blemishes it would be good as it's quite liquidy and would glide over them well. Again, though, the light coverage may prove a problem. I don't like it enough to justify the price.
This concealer is amazing!!! I've been using Korres Wild Rose Concealer for the past year or so. Trying to switch to natural products has gotten me in a rut with many different expensive and non-effective make up products -- and the Korres concealer was one of them. I always had to re-apply and wait for the click pen to dispense the concealer onto the brush. And though it felt good going natural, it just didn't work.
This Smashbox concealer. on the other hand, is incredible. After using the tester at ULTA over this horrible other concealer the guy at the counter put on me (erase paste by benefit and it was NOT my color), I bought it immediately. My eyes were noticeably brighter, my dark circles (the only place I use concealer) were covered, and the creamy consistency didn't settle into fine lines (a problem I always have with Benefit's concealers and Time Balm).
I noticed my face was looking brighter all day yesterday even though I was hungover and tired and didn't apply any makeup (lazy sunday). I realized it was because of this concealer and the Stila Stay All Day liner. I will definitely buy again!
I recently switched to this concealer after using Mac for the passed year or so and this is SO much better! Way creamier which is great for covering and a little bit goes a long way. It blends in really nice too. I use it for red spots and pimples, I don't get dark circles under my eyes so I can't tell you if it's good for that or not, but it's not thick or cakey at all. I'm sticking with this one!
I LOVE this concealer! LOVE LOVE LOVE! I was kinda on the fence about getting this, just because it's $18 and I didn't know if I would like it. The first time a got it, it was totally seperated, the oil and the color where like oil and water. So I took it back and got a new one, and this one didn't do that.
This doesn't break me out, even with the oil in it, lasts a very long time, and covers up my uneven skin tone. 4 stars :)
I'm sorry to say that I was quite disappointed with this. I love smashbox and been using the HD Foundation which is gr8 so had high hopes for this concealer. Unfortunately its not that good at concealing much at all. It is quite good for under the eye but dont think it covers very well. My skin breaks out every now and again and this concealer didnt seem to help at all. Its to watery I think. Very disappointed, especially as its quite expensive. Wont buy again.
