GinaBinaWina99 on youtube DUPED this to the Giorgio Armani Master Corrector (she swatches it there nicely) combined with GossMakeupArtist video on "How to Make your own Concealer/Corrector" inspired me buy this concealer on a whim.On its own, I LOVE how it brightens my NC25 hereditary dark & green veined undereye area. This sits really well under all my foundations without emphasizing fine lines. Down sides-it can be a bit drying, if you don't moisturize or top it with a concealer. If this is such a great product why would I even do that? Because its fairly neutral-salmon-y pink (not peach) so its really obvious on my yellow undertone skin, if I wear it on a bare face. So although, it covers/brightens everythingg, I just couldn't apply this & walk out the door UNTIL I saw Wayne's video. I then used his genius idea to start mixing it with my own concealers, first on my hand before application & now I have invested in small empty sample size jars (from Sally or Harmon beauty supply stores for like $1) to make them like a pro! I have containers of different concealers that I orginally rejected but am addicted to now ----->


-MAC studio Sculpt (too thick/drying)
-NYX concealer in a jar in beige (too yellow)
-Laura Mercier real deal concealer in Medium (slightly dark)
-Hard Candy glamoflauge concealer in Light (too runny)
-CoverFx concealer in Light-Medium (thin consistency)
-MUFE in No.5 (to amplify)
-TheBalm TimeBalm in Medium (darker color & thinner)


All of these are justt perfect for ME now. I don't have an exact mixing ratio, I just use a small amount at a time, with a spatula on a clean sanitized mirror & a lip brush to mix then scoop into the jars. I'm sure I have enough concealer to last me 10 yrs now but I wondered to myself what would I do, if I didn't have other concealers to mix this in with to get the ultimate product? So then I tried mixing this with foundations and even POWDERS! I have succesfully mixed drops of CS Bright Eyed Brightener in with:


-Everyday Minerals Semi-matte in Light
-Bare Essentials Mineral Veil powder
-Maybelline Dream Matte Mouse in Classic Ivory (this is my current FAVORITE for under eye area) this is a reincarnation of the beloved now discontinued Maybelline Dream Mousse concealer in CREAM!!


Clearly, I can't RAVE enough of this UNIVERSAL product. Just in case your wondering I paid $10 for this 0.7 oz miracle squeeze tube, that I imagine I still have atleast HALF of left, after all these mixtures. So ladies, if your having difficulty finding your preferred color, consistency or even price concealer I highly RECOMMEND buying a product like this or even using a nude or peach lipstick to create your own corrector like Wayne demonstrates. Theres lots of cheap (Wet n Wild/NYC/CoverGirl lipstick form concealers that you shred & use even) Hope this helps & others can finally use up all their collected makeup that has been collecting dust like mine had!
