First of all, it is near impossible to match my skintone (brown w/ yellow/gold undertones) in most concealer/makeup lines, and this one in E does a better job than most.This works really well for undereye circles (and I have some really scary ones, being a sleep-deprived grad student). The coverage is good without looking too heavy, and has good staying power - lasts to the end of the day. I usually pat on a bit of moisturizer about five min before applying the concealer with my finger - the moisturizer does a good job of helping the concealer blend well, as it is a bit thick on its own.
However, elsewhere on my oily face it tends to disappear much more quickly and look a bit splotchy. That's probably a good thing since I use a fair amount of concealer - I'll save this expensive tube for the undereyes and use a cheapie drugstore one for everything else!
I brought this in seconds in hopes it was like their earlier (now discontinued i hear) illuminating concealer (My o-la la la!) and took it home, tried it a few times and it was really greasy on me...deffinately did not stay in place as well as the other concealer. I decided it was to expensive for what it was. I do like the packinging though-keeps it fresh some what! It is good for drier skin i think..I think the benefit bo-oing is quite similar and is a slightly drier version and better so kept that instead! I have normal/combination and this stila concealer felt a little to icky for me..It felt like it was melting almost right away.. May work for some, but did not for me! BRING BACK THE ILLUMINATING CONCEALER! ;) -xoxox-
It's not perfect, but as concealers go it does a better than fair job. Best for normal skins as it can look a little crepey on dry patches and accentuate lines under the eyes.
I apply with a Beautyblender sponge for great results whether it's to cover up my dark circles or any skin imperfections.
The best part of this is the packaging - a convenient and hygienic squeeze tube that is easy to control how much comes out.
I'm Stila 30 watts and I wear this in shade C.
I just got this at Sephora-- after trying a lot of different concealers there, this was my favourite. At first I thought the shade (A) was perfect, but l noticed later it made my face kind of splotchy. It goes on pretty light, it's very creamy and smooth. You don't have to use a lot. I apply it with my fingertips around my mouth to cover blemishes (where it kinda effs up my complexion) and around my eyes to brighten them- it's great for dark circles. Then I put powder over it, and it lasts all day. It hasn't made me break out (so far) even though I've worn it overnight a couple times hahaha. I read someone recommends you use a concealer brush, so I'll try that and see if it will blend better.
This concealer does cover well, but it is not long-lasting, and it gives me the patchy appearance, mayb its because some part of my skin are dry, but it's just a normal ok product for me.However, it does provide flawless coverage when i mix it with my foundation, instead of applying it after foundation when im in a hurry.
Based on the last review, I got this. I was hoping so bad this would work. Well it does cover, but it melts away fast on me. and I am not oily per say... I even tried to powder over. No luck. Too bad it did not work on me. as it does cover, but not as long lasting as others have found. maybe it depends on the climate you live in.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this product. I have really bad circles under my eyes and i have been searching for a good concealer for years. i have used everything from Laura Mercier, MAC, even custom blended Perscriptives, but this is by far my favorite!! And this stuff lasts all day long!!
I love the way this concealer hides everything. I recommend using a good concealer brush with this. Using your little fingers will cause this to cake up!!!! This concealer hides dark circles, blemishes, scars. I used it once to hide someone's tattoo! The pigment is very rich and the product is very easy to blend. It has more of a yellow-beige base and does not match some people, but great for most. I have found that it works good for me. I use Dermalogica eye make up remover to take the product off when I wear it to cover my dark circles.
I got this in the 101 kit last year. It's not too bad. I find it easier to blend than Secret Camoflauge. It's got some yellow in it, which I know you need to hide purples and reds from undereye circles and blemishes. But, I just use it under my eyes. If I put this on a blemish, I'll just break out more. I recommend Rare Minerals Blemish therapy instead. This is good to use in the corners of my eyes. You don't need a lot and you can layer it for more coverage. I'm fair-medium and this is shade C. I only use this if I'm having a really tired day. Otherwise, I use Bare Escentuals concealer powder. But for more "flawless" coverage, this is better.
This is the only concealer that actually matched my skin tone and blended very evenly. Its a great product. I have blotchy skin and basic coverage of foundation just doesnt do the trick, but i use this and it works great. Its think and has great pigment. its good for ance, red patches, and under eye circles. I would deffinitley reccomend it.
