I've been on a concealer quest and this is one that I tried. Its peachy tones make it good for covering dark circles, but I find the texture difficult to blend without pulling on the difficult skin under my eyes. It also seemed to settle into fine lines and make them more obvious.
Ive been using this concealer and their foundation for about 2 years now. I love it for its versatility, depending on how it is used, it can go sheer to opaque in seconds. I tend to mix it with a light moisturizer to sheer it out and the results are always satisfying.
The downside is that the product does seem to shift through the day, especially if applied under the eyes. Its not a miracle product and does need to be touched up.
Also their color selection is limited and may not be suitable for all skin colors.
But through its flaws, I do find the concealer to be highly affordable and does an amazing job in covering under eye circles and blemishes. I will repurchase!
Pro: Thick concealer for very stubborn circles
Stays on all day
Skin looks better
Works well on other blemishes
Con: Too orange on my skin (even with lightest of the light option available)
Terrible packaging decision (product gets really dirty) and like another user said.. reminds of a $0.99 product.
This is a great concealer. I purchased it after looking for something to cover my hideous beatdown looking circles.
I absolutely loved it at first. Great even coverage and it worked well under my Bare Minerals
Eventually it started looking too orange on my skin and the product started getting really dirty even though I always clean my concealer brush. The little pad that comes with it disintegrated. I think it started drying out as it started caking even after moisturing and putting on my primer. I still have this concealer and really only use it now as a last resort. I havent thrown it away as I shelled out $18.00 for it. I would give it away but Im the fair one in my group of friends.
I personally would not buy this again because I just dont like it on me and its a bit expensive. I have recomended this concealer to my girlfriends though and they liked it and it works well for them.
This is probably the best concealer I have come across. It has a lot of shades and it has a very natural finish to it.
It is based on beeswax. I think my biggest issue with conealer is that they are usually wax or oil based if you want them to have staying powder but if you have a water based foundation it doesn't stay.
I had used Bobbi Brown prior to that - waaaaaay to chemically (if that's a word) and Napoleon Perdis which just felt like it was based on petroleum/mineral oil.
I don't like that this product comes in a pot as it is a terrible way to keep it clean. It has great coverage though.
Update: I downgraded this from a 4 to a 3 rating because I found that the product made me quite oily on spots of hyper pigmentation and that it was not staying as an under eye concealer. Shame. It is not suitable as a no-fuss daily concealer but certainly does the job for evening events. Also, the pot it comes is easily contaminated due to it's open and close nature. Not good for sensitive, acne prone skin
I bought this after it was recommended to me by a girl working at Sephora. I haven't tried very many concealers but I do enjoy this one.
- I apply it with a little concealer brush and it almost "erases" my flaws. (But I don't use this on my under eye circles)
- It's portable and not messy.
- It gets a bit gunky in the container to the point where I sometimes need to wipe off the top layer to "reset" the container.
- The packaging looks like something from the dollar store.
- The price was a bit steep for me.
- Only covers smooth flaws well so my broken skin is left looking broken and red.
OVERALL: I wouldn't buy this product again because I just didn't like it enough to justify the cost and there are too many others to try!
I have very acne prone skin and this made me break out (too waxy). However, this would work well under my eyes to conceal my dark circles. The packaging is not very sanitary either.
I have really bad genetic undereye dark circles. So far this is the best concealer that I have ever used. Covers circles really well, doesn't go cakey, light is the perfect colour for my pinky skin tone. My only complaint is that it wears off a little throughout the day other than that can't complain!
Great coverage, covers under eye circles and brightens the eye area like a dream. Make sure to get a shade lighter than your skin tone, it does wonders for such a small package.
at first i was pretty mad at myself for purchasing this product over the internet, as the color (lighter than light) did not seem very light and it also seemed rather pink for my yellow skin tone. after a few applications though, it seems to blend well with my foundation. i use this product for my dark circles and it does a decent job lightening them up. i have very sensitive skin but none of the ingredients are bothering me so far. you cannot use a heavy layer of this product or it will fill into all of the little creases directly under your eyes. because of the creamy consistency, i would also be weary using this on blemishes, or really anywhere else on the face besides the eyes. overall, OK product but i probably won't repurchase
I have been debating reviewing this for some time, as I was not completely sure of my opinion and still am not. I will start by saying this concealer is terrible on its own...crease city. However, with powderflage, its a dream. I find the coverage pretty good (again, as long as you set it...and I tried setting it with mineral powder but that was horrible...so far only powderflage has worked but I have ordered a cheaper silica product with high hopes). I guess it is moisturizing...its hard for me to tell because I'm battling some eczema around my eyes (not related to this and this doesnt irritate it at all...it covers the redness perfectly however does magnify the dry patches...like all makeup). I do think this complements the powderflage well as silica is drying. This is not as good as MAC studio finish (I especially hate the packaging!), but is definitely more moisturizing so it can be used well for light layering of the two. Overall, 3.5 - 4 and I recommend trying if you have dark circles, but use with a good setting agent or expect creases.
