This is horrible , it's greasy it creases like crazy and melts off your face. I bought this last October and I looked at the packaging/product when I got home and the concealers had like sweat drops in them almost as if It was sweating. I would record to save for a better one

I don't know why this product has such bad reviews! I actually really like it. I have a few dark spots on my cheeks and chin and this product covers them well. It's a decent concealer palette.

I bought this palette in "fair", and I can't say it's horrible -- although, it certainly is not great either. My skin is very red usually, and so I was in the market for some green concealer, but this green concealer is almost white. It "works", I suppose, but the problem is that when you add your skin-coloured concealer over it, it blends into the green and you end up, essentially, with a lighter version of the concealer colour you tried to use.
My problem with the concealer colours is that they're not terribly pigmented. I'm fairly pale and a bit yellow, but I have to use the darkest mixed with the second-darkest on this palette for my skin colour, which I think is a bit ridiculous. Unless you're super-pale-sickly white, then you're probably going to find the colour arrangement and pigmentation a little hard to work with. It's do-able, just not highly desirable.
Also, it's pretty greasy. It creases like crazy, and if you don't powder it, it will come off on, say, your clothes if your sleeve touches your face, or on your fingers if you scratch your skin. If you powder it, however, it's okay. Not great, still, but okay.
The packaging is probably one of the most irritating parts of this product. The top of it is hard to open (especially if you have short nails, like myself), and the case is so flimsy that I frequently worry about the hinge snapping off. There's a small brush that comes with it on a short string, and the brush is a complete joke and virtually useless; I don't know why the manufacturers think that a two-millimeter wide centimetre-long brush is sufficient to blend out concealer.
For what it's worth, I would say that you would be better off saving your money and spending it on something just a bit higher quality than this.

This product is horrible, no pigmentation, greasy, and the colors could not work for a variety of skin tones. The green did no red correcting, and the other two colors came out very white and were pointless. I get that this might work for younger kids, but there are better concealers for the same price. I would not even recommend this to a beginner at make up. In addition, the packaging was very gimmicky and the brush that came with it isn't even bigger than my pinky nail..

I will never buy this again! It is gross and does not cover anything! Ugh, i am so mad i bought this, i cant even take it back, i threw the receipt away. The packaging is cheap looking, the green color comes out almost white, the yellow and pink? CRAP! The whole palette is crap, dont waste your money.

Well for starters, the packaging of this is really cute.. But talk about a waste of money. The correcting colors are crazy. The green shade is practically white ( not helpful) the pink and yellow just don't seem to do what we are all wanting them too.
As far as the concealer.. I'm not sure if these colors were modeled after dolls but they tend to be completely unrealistic.
I never have a hard time matching foundations or concealer a to my skin tone but I can't seem to find one of the three concealers that work. Even when I try mixing them it just looks weird. This product does tend to cake slightly under the eyes.. I would recommend the Glamoflauge over this anyway!!!
Stay away from this one ladies!

This concealer STINKS! I wouldn't even put this up for swap because it's that bad and I don't see how this could work for anyone. I'm not bad mouthing Hard Candy at all! I love me some HC products like their Fox in a box powders/blushes, Baked blushes/bronzers and their discontinued tinted moisturizer :( but this is def a no no for my HC repurchases. Seeing as I actually love so many HC items I did have high hopes for this and sad to say I wish I could give this product 0 lippies but MUA forced me to give at least one. The the coverage of this is so sheer and light it won't cover anything! We wouldn't buy a concealer if we didn't want that extra coverage (rolls eyes). On top of it being sheer it's so greasy/oily that it slides all over and can't be built or melts away. The packaging and name was cute I give it that but all HC items are oober adorable. I wanted to love this when I bought it because it's not to often you can get a concealer palette at the drugstore...but now I know why! Wtih this I conclude my rant.

Being an Urban Decay owned company i kind of hoped the quality would be decent in this concealer palette. No. The texture is oily and creases like crazy. The coverage is virtually non existent. The packaging is cheap and tacky, looks like the cheap makeup my mom would humor me with when i was 7. Not worth 8 dollars. No thank you, ma'am.

I saw this at walmart, and it was pretty inexpensive for a concealer palette (plus it was adorable with a cute name) so i purchased it. Unfortunately once I got home and tried it out I realized it covered absolutely nothing on my face, felt really slick and greasy, no coverage whatsoever.

The idea of this product what really nice, but it turned out to be a huge waste of money in the end. The packaging is cheap, difficult to open at times and the "brush" is a joke.The product itself was thin, greasy, and sheer as all get out! The green tinted one could KIND OF be used for its color-canceling purposes, but other than that, this is a complete waste, and no one should buy it.

Waxy, greasy, crappy excuse for a concealer palette. The cream sat on my face in an odd way without sinking in, and would just slide off after 10 minutes. Zero coverage for the most part. One tiny saving grace for this palette was the yellow corrector, which I surprisingly used up completely. It works very much like Benefit's Lemon-Aid, same color, waxier texture, but overall performed in the same way to brighten my eye area and counteract any sallowness. It was the also the only corrector shade in the palette that didn't appear white like the others. Everything else? Pure garbage. Don't waste your time or money, and get the Glamoflauge instead.

I purchased this a while ago because it was adorable and because I wanted a variety of concealer shades.
I have mainly used the green shade but also the lightest of the beige shades.
I love the packaging. Just adorable.
The brush is cute too, but kind of useless. I prefer using a pointed cotton swab or my finger.
The product is a bit oily and thin, and it slides off as soon as any other product (such as foundation or powder) touches it. It also makes the spots I cover look almost white. I tried blending it in more, but then it does not cover at all.
So as much as I want it to work, it does not. Which is a shame because the packaging is darn cute. Oh well.

I like the fact that they have colors to offset redness of pimples. That has helped me out quite a bit.

I got this when i was interested in trying a concealer palette that had other colors for correcting other than just the basic skin colors.i had seen palettes everywhere but i did not want to spend the big bucks.I really wanted to like this at 6 colors for $6 it would be a great deal. It was as in most cases too good to be true.The product itself looks pretty but the consistency of 4 out of 6 colors (green,pink,yellow and lightest skin color) is thin and greasy feeling. It does not stay in place and would slide right off. The other 2 colors (the darkest 2 skin shades) seemed dry and would not blend. Honestly i do not know why they even bothered with the different colors because they all seem like a guppy mess and i saw no difference whatsoever when trying to use different colors for different areas. It comes with a small "concealer brush" on a small rope tied to the palette. In my opinion it was worthless and seemed like a joke or decoration. I could not use it to apply the makeup it was to small and flimsy. It would not pick up enough product and if i did try to put it on it would again just slide everywhere. Strange! i do not recommend buying this.
-wipes off quickly
-greasy or dry depending on the color
-does not do what it claims

I really hated this.
I have redish marks on the sides of my nose, chin, and every now and the na blemish or two. I was at Walmart and thought that since i'm out of my bo-ing concealer, I might as well try a cheaper option. A few of my friends told me it was a great concealer, and I assumed they would be right. Not so.
PACKAGING: Shitty. The flimsy plastic case sometimes doesn't colse properly, and it gets dirty very easily. It comes with a brush but using that will give you immediate cake face. YUCK. It looks pretty cute, but still cheap.
COVERAGE: Proably the worst coverage concealer ever. It's so sheer and not buildable at all!
TEXTURE: The texture is overly creamy and almost oily. Can you say waste of my money?
LASTING ABILITY: 2 hours, tops. That's IF you don't have oily or combo skin, and then it'll fade within 30 minutes.
COLOR SLECTION: Nice, I must admit. There is a wide range of colors n each palette for every skin tone, and you're able to mix and blend multiple colors to match your skin's needs. The initial appeal was the colors.
FINISH: Slick, translucent, patchy, and nonexistant. Somehow emphasized dry areas.
Overall, save your money gals. I used this for a week, tried many different applications, and it yeilded no results. Very dissapointed.

This was the first concealer I ever really used and I was really excited to use it because of the variety of it but for me it was a disaster. For one the brush it comes with is ridiculously small and I lost that real fast. And the consistency is too creamy, when I use it anywhere it melts after a couple hours and cakes/ slides in the areas I used it. And the skin colored parts dried out and turned hard after a while. Maybe it's just my oily skin, Maybe on someone with normal or dry skin it'd work perfectly.

This concealer palette isn't awesome, but it isn't horrible either. I have the palette in fair." I mostly use the green concealer for redness and the lightest of the skin-colored concealers for acne. The green takes the edge off red skin, but doesn't do much for covering acne. The skin-colored concealers aren't the best, but they work okay for minor blemishes. They're also a little too dark, so if I use them, I will mix them with a different concealer. I haven't really used the other colors of concealer, but I might eventually. This palette is nice if you need light coverage and several different colors of concealer. I don't regret buying it, but I also don't think it would be practical for me, personally, to buy another one since I only use the green concealer and a skin-colored concealer.

This is the worst concealer product I've ever used. It didn't cover over anything. It was extremely thin and watery! It just slides right off! Such a waste of money.

I originally got this as a small gift from a cousin in the pallet shade Medium. Immediately I was anxious to open it and play around with all the colors. I noticed the pink and yellow pans were pretty useless, it actually highlighted my dark circles with it's shiny glitter specs. The green pan was too sheer to actually cover a lot of redness or blemishes. And I do not know if it was just me, but all three of the skintone pans had different consistencies to them!
The lightest shade was very thick and creamy ( a bit hard to dish out), the second lightest shade had a slippery feel to it, and the deepest shade (which was the only one closest to me) was even more oily and slippery when dishing it out, far too sheer also. Overall, I think this pallet is best for those with very minor imperfections. What surprised me the most was the price, eight dollars? Pass.
