I love this concealer! It says on the product that it's a "2-in-1 Concealer & Highlighter," I don't really see this as being a highlighter, but it does work great to conceal! It's perfect for undereyes, I just put two or three little dots and then blend it in with my ring finger. I use Clinique Even Better Correcting Foundation first, blend it in very well, but then I still have some scars/blemishes showing through. I'm not one to layer my foundation on and on, so I go to this concealer. I put in on in streaks over problem areas, then I dab it in very lightly with my finger and wait a minute or two for it to get a little tacky, then I use an EcoTools fluffy blush brush to blend it in with circular buffing motions. It doesn't work all that well for textured acne (like if I have a scab over a zit I picked at), but it works well for spots and smooth blemishes. For textured problems I use Maybelline's Dream Mousse Concealer (yes, it is discontinued, but you can still buy it on eBay!). I set all this with Revlon ColorStay powder. A really great product for how cheap it is! continued >>
I always find myself picking up concealers at the drugstore. I got mine in "Light" and it is super pink. It also shows up way darker than it looks in the tube. I'm not a fan of the squeezy tube/brush combo, you have the choices of nothing or enough for 5 uses. I like the consistency of this concealer but really doesn't conceal anything. I will not repurchase.
I like the coverage on this Concealor. However, I notice that it works better when applied before foundation. Maybe it's just me, but it doesn't look as chalky. The highlighting is good but I hate the brush. It's unsanitary and you end up squeezing more product than you need so it become wasteful. The coverage is about medium so if youhave serious eye circles, use a corrector first ( I use Bobbi brown) and then apply for full coverage
If you're rating this based on how it didn't conceal acne marks, you picked up the wrong product. It's a concealer/highlighter which pretty much means "under eye concealer" - you don't want to highlight acne marks and it's not for heavy concealing. On the back of the product, it says "conceal signs of fatigue, highlight & illuminate eye area, & soft-precision brush for delicate under eye area". It's the perfect concealer to cover my dark circles (which always look a little crazy against my pale skin); I use the applicator tip directly on a small makeup sponge and blot under my eyes. The staying power isn't the best, but a little powder goes a long way. continued >>
This was too watery for me. It disappeared as I blended it and not as in it disappeared into my skin. As I blended it just went away. I had the lightest shade and it worked for me but I would have to really later it on to get any coverage. I would dot it on and let it sit for a couple minutes to thicken up before I blended. It never really looked natural on either. It always looked like patchy makeup under my eyes. Hated the squeeze tube with the brush at the end. The brush thingy was useless. I won't repurchase
I Have really oily and acne prone skin for starters.
I saw so many good reviews about this product I thought I just had to try it!
So I did... Heres my thoughts
I like the packaging for some reason, even tho it's unsanitary
Didn't match my skin AT ALL
Waste of money ($8.99CAN)
Didn't even cover my dark circles or acne
WASTE OF MY MONEY
This is an awesome DS concealer for undereyes! I've been doing some stash shopping lately and really embracing some old DS loves :) I set it with the tiniest bit of Mac MSFN or e.l.f. HD powder, and it stays all day. I don't always set it with powder tho, and it's still fine w/out. I love how people are complaining that this doesn't cover acne, acne scarring, etc. when it's called a HIGHLIGHTING concealer. It says right on the tube, 2 in 1 highlighter & concealer. Don't *highlight* your blemishes, people!! LOL. It's not that type of concealer. Don't ever buy any concealer that boasts its' highlighting properties & expect it to cover your pimples! It will cover a bit of redness around your nose or something like that, but for acne, etc. you need a Mac studio finish type of concealer. Or even Hard Candy's glamoflauge would be a good DS option. Alot of people dislike this brush type applicator, but I must be weird cuz I actually like it. Then again, I also like clicky pen brush applicators too, and most people complain about them also. Overall, this is an excellent option for beauty on a budget! continued >>
The Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer is a squeeze tube concealer with a brush tip applicatior. The packaging isn't anything special, just the brand name and the product name on the front and on the back there's a chart telling you what color you'll be if you use their coordinating foundation (I don't). I originally bought this in 230, which was the lightest shade my CVS seems to carry. It was wayyy too dark. The coverage was good, so was the staying power. It was just the color. So, flash forward a few months. This is shoved into the back on my makeup drawer. I discover that my beloved fit me foundation is breaking me out, so I go to Ulta and get this in the lightest shade (that I didn't know existed), shad 125. And it's a miracle. It matches perfectly, and I use it on my face, too, not just under my eyes, and it doesn't break me out. This is a truely amazing concealer. I used to hate concealers because I could never find one the worked and fit my skin tone, but here it it. And for six dollars! This is the only product I wear on my actual 'face' (like, skin) on a regular basis, and it makes all the difference. I have acne, but mostly acne scarring, and this takes care of it. I actually got a compliment on how lovely my skin looks, which never happens. I really recomend you get this.
UPDATE: Yeah. It's too dark for me now. I won't take off any lippies, since I seem to be unatrually pale. I still use it over Almay Smart Shade Smart Blend, but I don't wear it daily...Just pale girl problems, I guess. This is still a great product, and I definitely reccommend you check it out. The thing I noticed was that there isn't a lot of product in these things. I used most of it up in a month and a half...
One good thing is that this NEVER creases on me. Or gets oily. Or breaks me out. It also never felt heavy.
LOVE this stuff! covers great & you can pack it over on without getting cakey. it matches my skin tone perfectly & perfect for highlighting or brightening under eyes & such. the ONLY thing i kinda dont like its a love/hate thing is the brush like agh sometimes it comes in handy other times it just bugs me. & i feel like i need more product too. but other than that this a great concealer for the cheap price! will deff buy again! continued >>
I was looking around for a new concealer as I was getting tired of my maybelline one and I stumbled across this one . I have it in light because the medium one was WAY too dark , and the light matches me perfectly ! So I went home & tried it and it is AMAZING . This stuff covered my current blemish beautifully ! Way better than my maybelline one ! It made my dark circles disappear and gave me a nice glow . I am so happy that I found this concealer . I haven't had it long enough to call it my HG but it's getting there (: would def reccomend !
UPDATE: I'm knocking one lippie off for the fact that it tends to dry to a darker color on me.. It becomes a reddish pink . It's not so noticeable, however it is really annoying as i have to take extra precaution with blending. I don't think I will purchase again . continued >>
