I just got the concealer today! I wore it all day and it didn't move, or wear off! It's texture is creamy, yet it's not cakey. The reason why I didn't vote this a 5/5 is for two reasons. One, it doesn't have a mirror, but when it stays so well, you might not need one. The other reason is I tried to blend it with my fingers, and it just doesn't look natural like the rest of my makeup. So I used my maximum concealer brush from Bare Minerals and it seems to work a little better! All and all, I'll get use to the product, but for right now, I'm loving it and defiantly recommend for under the eyes and around the nose!

This review is for the camouflage concealer palette from Coastal Scents.
This is much better than I would have thought for the price, and there is a pretty good range of concealer colors from the lightest ivory to mid-brown.
The container itself is kind of cheap looking and there is no mirror, but this is a good set to buy if you are looking for a good deal or for teenagers, etc. The product inside is actually pretty good although like many creamy products needs to be set with translucent powder to work best.

I have come back to this concealer after a long time of neglecting it. I use it mostly to cover up red or darker blemishes on my cheek and around my nose. It is great as I can use it any time of year (I range from NC30 to 40) and not have to buy a new shade. It lasts a really long time on flat surfaces on my face even in very hot weather. The only problem I have it that it creases a but around my nose and mouth near my smile lines. For the price, versatility and ease of use (just need fingers!) this is a great product. Will keep me over until I find another pan concealer which doesn't crease as much.

Great concealer quad. I'm an NC20-25 and the second darkest shade works perfectly to cover blemishes. The colours definitely go on lighter than they look. Not greasy at all, works under my eyes or on my face, blends beautifully. Unfortunately, the lid broke off, but that's not a huge deal to me. Definitely recommended!

I was a little skeptical about this product, I'm very fair (NF 15 MAC foundation) but alot of reviewers seemed to favor the medium Quad so I gave it a go.
the first few days the product was very creamy and easily blendable, the peachy beige colour covered my dark circles beautifully, though I usually mix it with the yellow from the corrector quad for better coverage and eye brightening effect. it does harden a bit later but still blendable if you warm it up on your fingertips before applying.
the white makes an excellent eye-shadow base.
at first I didn't know what all the fuss was about, now a month later I've realized that I haven't even touched my MAC concealer since I got this! for $8 this is a good bargain, you get a really good concealer and an eyeshadow base (for some a conture creme too) all in one for the price of a drug store product.
I well re-purchase this, hopefully they'll have it in stock since those and the colour correcter always seem to be soldout.

I love this concealer but I only use it under my eyes. *I don't use any concealer on pimples because it makes them larger- just a personal preference* Day 1 of the product being out of the box, the surface of this cream concealer was at its creamiest. A few days later, the tops of the concealer were more dry, but if I pressed in for product I still got the concealer at a creamy texture. I notice with MAC or Bobbi brown etc. their products stay creamy at all times, but this was only $7.95. I am NC15/NC20 and I chose Medium. Normally I am the lightest in concealer shades but Medium is perfect. The tan red based shades are great to neutralize dark circles. I use the 2nd to lightest beige color on top of one of the dark. Sometimes I use the white shade to highlight my eyelid, my cupid's bow, or I use it under my eye and it brightens the eye area so well! You could also do some highlighting /contouring with this medium palette because of the white to medium brown contrast in colors. I did notice when I blend the concealer under the eye to the top of my cheek bones, or sides of nose I got little cystic bumps in those areas. All cream foundations/concealers do this to me, which is why I don't use concealer on my face. Before using this I would rotate MUFE full coverage, Lancome effacernes, & MAC studio finish which are all full coverage. I have not touched my other concealers since buying this quad. This product is full coverage, and works equally as effective if not better (because you can blend 4 shades and neutralize anything) unlike a regular concealer in 1 shade. This product photographs well, and it lasts all day under my eyes. I set it with any face powder I happen to be using that day. I find patting this concealer works best, because rubbing it tends to sheer it out a little. The colors in this palette actually work better to camouflage dark circles than the yellow in the colorful concealer palette they offer if anyone is debating on which to get for dark circles. This doesn't crease in wrinkles, but when applying I do make sure to blend well if I bring it to the outer corner of my eye. I am very pleased that I can set this concealer with powder instantly, without waiting for it to sit & dry, and the under eye area never looks cakey, I never do that with my mac or mufe. Would buy again, $8 for 4 shades!

I've a rather sensitive skin which breaks out easily. I read the reviews and went on to buy the camo quad in medium. The colour was really beautiful, and sexy. Initially I put in on my eyes, no man, it is DAMN dry on eyes, and I'm only 22. And slowly, I begin to apply on my face, well, the colur is really nice, thick and nice coverage, esp the dark brown colour, great for blush, BUT, it BROKE me out ;(
I'm so sad, I continued trying, and every time I tried, it gives me bumps and such, till now, I stopped recently and bought another bronzer to use, hoping it won't give me bumps again :( my face is combination anyways.

After reading so many good reviews I decided to try this product. The packaging is pretty good and the price is indeed dirt cheap, but im not very satisfied with this product. It just doesnt cover up my acne scars, though I have to admitt I havent found any concealer which does the trick.
The colours which come in the packaging are in my opinion also quite weird, maybe the light shade is meant for highlighting and the dark one for contouring I dunno. Overal a decent product for a good price, but I would rather pay a bit more if that means getting a better result.

In my opinion, I think that this product is very good. The coverage is amazing and it has pretty good long wear. The only reason why I would not repurchase this item is because I only use one shade out of the four daily. (Occasionally I will use the white shade to highlight the arch under my brows) Overall, good product but I wouldn't buy this again..

Very creamy concealer. What I love about it is that the medium shade matches me exactly - if only there was a foundation in the same exact shade! Although it is creamy and blendable, it doesn't seem to blend into my skin and just sits on top. It does have very good coverage though.

I am really very pleased indeed with this quad. :) I am a complete foundation and concealer junkie, have moody skin and often have quite some difficulty to find products to suit my fair skin.
But since I started to do some fake tanning, I ordered this quad in both Medium and Light to be on the safe side. Though the Medium is the one I use regardless of tanning or not since the Light is really so very light that I quite doubt many people really would need that one.
The only con I have found with the palette is that I find the darkest colour to be too peachy for me to use, even if I sometimes would need something darker than the medium shade to mix with when tanning. Which will probably lead to me ordering the Dark palette aswell, even if I am nowhere near that dark. Simply to have a more neutral shade to mix a fair bit of lighter concealer into when I tan. :)
And with this price, it is such a bargain even if I would have to order every single quad in doubles or something. ;) I am very satisfied with the product, it's not cakey or drying and it's quite versatile. You also get a very big amount of product that will probably last half a lifetime. It will most surely be discarded for hygiene reasons long before it is near running out. Highly recommended! :)

The shades are slightly odd but it contains decent sized pans of *creamy* concealer! This quad is ok but not for me. When swatched, the shades are surprisingly quite a bit lighter than they look in the pan. I do find that this gives me adequate coverage and I like it compared to my BB Touch Up Stick which costs something like £18 for a very little amount of product and no staying power (with my oily skin). So compared to the price of the BB concealer, this is not too bad but I can't mix a decent shade. Ugh.
It also came with a free sample of eyeshadow that I LOVE! It was a nice surprise to get that in the post :)

I was intrigued by the rave reviews of so many MU gurus on the youtube about this product. And decided I must have it! Since I dont live in the States and there are so many products not available in my country, I thought I will never be able to try this. But I'm glad they had international reseller, and I was delighted to find one in my country and quickly bought it. My everyday concealer is MAC Studio Finish Concealer in NC35. And this concealer is pretty good considering the 4 colors it gives and the fact that its half the price of a MAC. Bear in mind that I have medium to severe post acne marks that are red and some have turned brown (eewwww) on my cheeks and forehead, therefore I really need a highly pigmented concealer that covers well and long-wearing or else my face looks horrible. The Verdict:
-This concealer is highly pigmented and very creamy. It does conceal rather well, almost 90% the coverage of MAC.
-The color looks pretty dark on the palette but, it is actually lighter than it looks, the medium color on this quad looks identical to my MAC NC35 concealer but when applied, it was way lighter and thus I had to blend it with the darkest shade to get the exact match.
-This is also very long-wearing for about 6-7 Hours without budging, it does not fade or melt into the skin..considering I have crazy oily face and sweat like crazy in this humid tropical weather! This is great
-The application is smooth and a lil goes a long way., or else it'll get cakey.
-this doesnt break me out.
-This however is not suitable for the undereye, as it can be rather drying, but if you mix it with a lil with a moisturizer,it does a pretty decent job actually.
Bottomline: A heavy duty concealer and a dupe for the MAC one! Yay!

I really don't know what to rate this product. I have mixed feelings about it. Let me start off with the shades. This quad contains 4 different colors that are "suitable" for medium skin tones. I have suitable in quotations because I don't find them to be suitable. There is a clown white, very light porcelain peach (that is practically white), a medium beige and a deep, muddy beige. Both beige shades have no yellow tones in them whatsoever. I'd like to say that they are more towards the MAC NW shades - but they aren't really. The darkest shade runs sort of pink and the medium beige is very neutral. If I put the med. beige shade under my eyes, it makes my under eyes look dull and gray. The lighter shades are too light and the darkest shade is too dark (NC40 here for ref). The only way I can really get this to work under my eyes is if I mix the light porcelain peach with the medium beige shade - still not the most flattering color. It does conceal my under darkness fine. But I don't like using such a dry product under my eyes. Like many have stated, this concealer is extremely dry. Sometimes I run my hot blow drier over it to soften the product. It feels very similar to NARS Duo Concealer - that dry, compacted, almost silicone feel. Although I don't like using this under my eyes because it lacks brightness and radiance, I like using it on blemishes. I like using the light porcelain peach shade and dabbing it on my blemish with a concealer brush and then go over it with a darker shade (the medium beige). It covers the blemish completely. So if you're looking for something to conceal redness and blemishes - this is great. I like to use the clown white shade before I put on my foundation to "highlight" the high points of my face. With a sponge, I like to dab a little on the top of my cheekbones and under the hollows of my cheeks. Then, I apply my foundation. It helps add a little dimension to my face in conjunction with a contour. I really wish this product had better shades. For medium skin, they should of had 4 shades that are somewhat similar in the medium skintone range.. one with perhaps yellow or golden tones, one with peachy/salmon tones.. then they could have one neutral and one lighter or darker. I think the colors are just off the wall.

None of the colors matched me. And they were all too warm for my skintone so I had to mix with the yellow in the color corrector quad to get a good color. It is very pigmented but also chalky and dry... I hate that. But it covers well. I don't use it on my nose because it seems to dry out faster there but it's good to cover up scars.

I would think that the MUA's reviews for this concealer would be much better. I purchased this concealer after watching numerous You Tube gurus rave about it. I went ahead & purchased it & I'm so glad that I did. I was blown away by the feel & coverage of this product. Now most of my makeup arsenol is MAC so I'm going to be very picky about all of my cosmetics. However, I did have a feeling that this concealer was going to be great cuz I've never been dissapointed by any makeup that I've ever ordered from Coastal Scents. CS is a WONDERFUL cosmetics company! So the main reason why I purchased this quad was cuz of the color mix & match choices in it. You are able to adjust the color tone to your liking. There are 3 colors plus 1 highlighter. I also found that this is a very convenient case for travel. It's much easier then using a tube concealer. Another great quality about this quad is its texture. WOW!! It blends so smoothely & it is absolutely NOT sticky or greasy. It feels almost powdery, which is a plus cuz anything sticky or greasy blurs my contacts. No contact lens problems using this concealer! As for the coverage.... perfection! It covers my dark circles COMPLETELY! I have nothing negative @ all to say about this product. Everything is positive about it, from its convenient packaging, to its amazing texture, & then to its superb coverage. I highly recommend & & also suggest using a concealer brush! A very quick & easy application just by using a brush with it. Almost 4got.... No creasing!!

Decent product...didn't break me out! I use the lightest for helping with dark circles but mainly use the medium color in the quad for all concealing purposes. I don't use the dark so I wish I could just buy a big one of the color I use. The hidden gem is the white. I use it as an eye color base over primer and under shadow/pigment. Works REALLY well!

I really haven't been using this as much as I have this winter. I have been plagued with acne/pimples and blemishes this last 2 months. I needed to use a concealer to hide them. I only have this concealer to use. During the first few tries during summer, it worked great then I used it once again this season and I suddenly broke out like crazy. The last time I ever used it, my face was so darn irritated that it looked like my skin got boils. It was awful because all I want to do with my face was scratch it. I was miserable. At first, I thought it was my mac foundation so I didn't use it and switched to Dior, which then I realized is the camo's fault. I really have nothing against this product's features and usage but my face clearly didn't like it. If it wasn't for Olive Oil, my skin would still be with hives.

I really wanted to love this product but of course I really couldn't.....I think all they hype from youtube and coastal scents website had an influence in this purchase well and the fact that Im always on a hunt for a good concealer. I love the colors and could not wait to try it....its very creamy and blendable but when I put it under my eye to cover my minor dark circles it only made them look worse now I've tried for days now using a lil then alot a brush then my finger I always get the wrong results....so then I tried on a blemish I dnt break out to often so I only had 2 this entire week it goes on great if the pimple is not a healing one it only makes it look cakey. I even got my mom one for christmas its to late to return it and its not a good product for me so now i'm out a concealer and another gift.

Very good colours, but the darkest one is too dark for my skin.. This concealer works pretty good and hides all the imperfections. The white colour is so good for highlighting face and eyes. Good package overall.
