I've been dealing with really bad acne, and this concealer did cover my acne, but only after I slapped three pounds of it on my face and it was completely obvious I had makeup on. As you can imagine, the tube didn't last long. I wouldn't buy again.

Do not buy this if you have dry skin. This concealer accentuated by dry patches. I have it in the lightest shade and bought it to brighten my under eyes and it flakes and creases terribly. It's a runny consistency and drys to a chalky finish. If you don't blend fast enough it will set and be unblendable. Perhaps if you have oily skin it might be better, but it's not for me....

I use this concealer in this lighter shade as highlight for my cheeks and it works and blends well. It is a good product for it's price. I have tried to use this product as a concealer, but it is kind of more on the runny consistency and doesn't have the correct consistency for me to conceal my dark circles under my eyes. I don't have many blemishes on my face to conceal so I don't really use concealer for that but I am assuming that this formula would be too thin to conceal any blemishes. I also use this to line my eyebrows and it works well for this purpose because it blends well into my foundation around my eyebrows.

Nope. My quest to find a full-coverage concealer that doesn't crease within minutes continues. This one had good reviews on here, so I tried it out, but the coverage is poor, it doesn't last AT ALL (and I tried many combinations of different eye creams and primers, trying to make it stick), the cast is chalky no matter what shade you use, and it creases like a mofo. Sigh... still searching.

I actually got this in Light/Pale which was not the right shade for me so obviously it wouldn't work as well as it does for others, though I do think there r a few downsides to this that some of you could agree on:

- Nice & handy packaging
- Doesn't dry too fast, is blendable
- Doesn't cover blemishes that well
- Tends to get cakey if used under eyes (so remember to used eye cream or a silicone-based primer beforehand)
- Tends to flake off if used on pimples or anything that's swollen up
- The stuff LEAKS: I always have it standing up so the problem is not the product inside, it's the gunk on the twisting part of the tube; bc there's so much of it that whenever you open or close the tube it always leaks and becomes a mess. So either finish the bit of product on there first or clean it off completely.

Conclusion: Won't go back to this. Will use mine up and get something else.

I love this. I use it as a highlight concealer under my eyes, down my nose, cupid's bow, between my eye brows and on my chin. I do not use it regularly on my blemishes. I have and it covers well but I mainly use it for the method shown above. I do love it and it's affordable. Because I use it for that reason, it seems to run out faster but that's ok. I will probably buy it again but I want to try Maybelline's Instant Age Rewind concealer because I have heard rave reviews about that one also. But if I don't like that one, I will go back to NYX.

I bought this on a whim because I needed a quick fix for my face. We all know how that goes. It actually reminds me a lot of the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer--just not quite as good of a product. It goes on like a dream, and does its job well. It just has more of a tendency (and I'm comparing it to the NARS product here) to cake/crease a bit. I might buy it again if I'm in a pinch. For the price, you really can't beat it.

I am very conflicted with this product. I would purchase this again solely because it is pale enough for my very porcelain skin. But it just gets DRY after a while and doesn't blend as beautifully as when you first open it. It also empties very quickly and I tend to have a light hand when applying it. This was also not a good one for covering blemishes since it didn't blend out well and it dried up all flaky. I would buy it as a last resort but definitely not my favorite one on the earth.

I love this stuff!!! It has been what I use to conceal under eye circles, blemishes, and even highlight my face all in one product. I bought the porcelain shade the first time, but it was a tad too light for what I wanted. So when I re purchased I decided to try the Fair shade and it is a perfect color. The wand applicator I like better than a pot concealer. I hate having to dip my finger in products. I swipe it on in a few places and blend either with a brush or fingers. This has good coverage and a creamy feel .It lasts me all day which is the best part of this stuff. I cant stand when I look in the mirror three hours after application and there are creases around my mouth and under my eyes. With this stuff I have yet to find a single crease or fade. I will continue to re purchase!!!! Very inexpensive too! I have yet to find another concealer from the drugstore I love more than this!

Ahh-mazing!! Cannot express how awesome this product works. I have tried almost all of the high-end concealers and this out-performs them. It can even double as a highlighter and wear it over another concealer, like the touche eclat from YSL. It is truly photogenic too! It spreads heavenly and has the right amount of pigment. It is a Staple in my make-up bag and I always have two or three handy. You cannot beat the price, too. It does not crease and it blends perfect with the rest of your makeup. But, the best quality of this concealer is that it does not look dry, flaky, or cakey. Must Have!!
