I wanted to like this product, and it DID work to conceal my undereye circles..... but I'm allergic to something they use in their products. Slight burning sensation the whole time I wore it. Same thing (with tiny bumps developing) when I wore the TM.
So glad I picked this up on a whim. Most concealers tend to disappear on me after a few hours but this one stayed put for 8 hours plus!! It is kind of thick but I use a concealer brush and it works fabulous. It will hide everything. I was using maquicomplet from lancome and still like it for under the eyes because it's more moisturizing, but this one wins out for covering hyperpigmentation and other flaws. It's a tiny tube, but you don't need much. What's nice about it is the tube packging. Most heavy concealers come in pots which I find unhygienic. I don't have to worry about contamination. I thought it was expensive but after going through Laura Mercier, Lancome, Estee Lauder, Dermablend. I think this one is a total winner. It hid everything and stayed put.
The only bad thing is it's hard to wash off with a regular cleanser. I suggest using a makeup remover to get it off or maybe a toner. It's supposed to be waterproof and I believe it. I'm using Shade B which is the second lightest color for my fair but peaches complexion. The lightest shade is really more blue toned for the absolute lightest.
Just remember to blend, blend , blend. You will look flawless.
I am shade F and this seriously hides EVERY and ALL redness and acne marks. I seriously look like I have flawless skin. I got a terrible skin reaction to a product, thus broke out in huge red acne and marks, and I had a wedding to go to the same weekend, I dabbed on my Stila and poof like magic it was ALL covered. I read that many users thought it was greasy etc, I can agree to an extent. I do have dry-combo skin so I didn't expierence the effect at all, especially during the winter when my skin tends to be more drier. For the summer months, I will still use this occasionally, especially at nighttime when I go out. But maybe, during the hot days, I will wear something more light. But, like I said, def recommend, it matches my skin flawlesslyyy.
I first got this product as part of Stila's Introduction to Foundation set and discovered I like it. In fact, I'm still using the tube that came in the set and will be interested to see how long it lasts. It seems like it's still completely full. This came in Shade C as part of the set and matches my skin pretty darn well (NW 20 for reference). The consistency is thick without being pasty or hard to blend. At first, I thought it was going to crepe in my very dry under-eye area but after a moment of blending, it smoothed right in. I don't think any concealer, sans the really heavy-duty kind like Dermablend's, is going to cover huge imperfections but for the bit of inner-eye darker discoloration I have or the occasional red blotch that appears out of nowhere, it's pretty darn good.
I purchased this product in shade I because a salesperson at Sephora recommended it. For reference, I am MAC NC45, African-American female with oily skin. The color was a perfect match for my skin tone. Honestly the best color of any concealer I have ever used. The coverage is buildable. I have to use at least two layers to completely cover my acne scars. The coverage does not last very long, a few hours at best. It has a very oily and shiny appearance once I apply it. I strongly discourage acne-prone or oily types from using this product. My HG concealer is (MUFE) Make Up Forever Professional Full Cover - Extreme Camouflage Cream in Dark Beige but its quite pricey at $30 for a 0.05 oz tube. It is only sold retail in the U.S. at Sephora. But a little goes a long, long way and I can even use it in the corner of my eyes without it caking up. If you are a women of color, I highly recommend trying MUFE products because of its color selection for darker skintones.
From Sephora website MUFE is:
An ultra long-lasting, matte finish, oil-free, waterproof, full coverage concealer.
What it is formulated to do:
Designed to cover major imperfections like scars, hyperpigmentation, major discoloration, burns, and tattoos. This light and creamy concealer contains a high concentration of pigments that stay put, making it perfect for use on the face, as well as the body.
this was greasy on me, and it didn't feel like it ever set. coverage was OK, if you go over with a dust of loose powder you should be good to go. I will pass because I think there are other concealers that would work better for me..
Makeup Forever's Full Coverage concealer is the best. This is OK, but it doesn't last forever, melts off by the end of the day, and doesn't cover too well. It's kind of greasy or something.
I just didn't think it was that great. OK at best, but nothing special and not worth the money. Didn't go on smooth.
Firstly, the only reason I wont be repurchasing this product is due to the colour range that retails here in Australia. I need aa, which we no longer get, as a is too dark on me. I'm quite surprised to see people describing this product as greasy. Apart from the colour range, the biggest downside for this concealer for me is that it was too dry on me. It does feel a little shiny to touch, but when applied, it did often create the look of dry patches if my skin wasnt primed properly. Under eyes, I liked this stuff. Whilst finishing my degree, this effectively created the illusion that I had actually slept. I also think it's a reasonable sized package and lasts for ages.
What a disaster of a product! First let me start off by saying that I have dry skin so I wasn't so concerned when alot of the reviews before mine said how greasy and shinny this concealer was but even for my very dry skin was it disgusting! This product is pure grease! No matter what kind of skin you have. Just look at the ingredients- the first few ingredients are polybutane and all kinds of oils. I even realized that the first few ingredients are the exact same like my philosophy lip gloss so what does that say! This concealer felt like I was rubbing thick lipgloss/vaseline all over. My skin felt dirty and clogged. It's so greasy that all it did was slick off too. No matter if I pat, dab, rubbed, used my finger or a brush- it all just slicked off. I even set it with powder and it slid off. Due to that- it did not cover a thing. I normally would just toss it but I was so annoyed that I drove 45 mins to sephora to return it out of principle! Oh and P.S- when one of the reviewers before me said that her face looked like a grease bomb exploded on her face- she couldn't have described it better because thats exactly what i looked like as well.
