Wow. Very impressed. I purchased this instead of a "stick" type concealer because I don't like any "pulling" under my eyes. Love the price & the light is perfect for me. I've noticed it's harder to find a true "light" concealer - this one works for me!

The only concealer I have ever used up and repurchased. Light-medium is a good color match for me. This concealer is inexpensive, easy to find at Walmart, covers blemishes well, and doesn't irritate. I have one in my makeup bag, one in my desk drawer and one in my purse. I can't think of a good reason to try any other!

I do, in fact, like this concealer. Now, I use this to cover the under-eye area, as it lightens and covers the puffiness. I have this in the color 'Light'. It is very liquidy, but I find that it aids in blending as long as you're doing it correctly. Too much put on at once will be a hot sticky mess (trust me). Start with a thin layer, and build if you really need to. The packaging leaves a bit to be desired, to be honest. I love the doe-foot applicator, but when I put the wand back in, it seeps over the edges, making for a mess. Which I would be fine with, but sometimes I forget to wipe it off, and my makeup bag is covered in concealer. With a good setting powder, this wil.l last me all day. Hooray!!

I prefer liquid concealer over the cream and stick ones because they are easier for me to blend out. I have this in light, and it really works well for me! I mainly use it for my dark circles, and it definitely gets the job done. It comes in a tube with an applicator and once the tube gets low, it is difficult to get the remaining product out, so that is probably my only issue with this. It does not have a horrid smell and it blends very well.

This is a really good concealer ! ^^ I bought it for around $2 at a local store. The coverage is pretty good, but it takes a while to blend it out.

This isn't the worst concealer, but there is definitely better. I wouldn't recommend it. That's all I have to say, really. It seems really watery to me and just doesn't conceal all that well.

This is truly a good concealer.I use this as my first layer then use my age rewind on top to truly make them disappear.It's a little tacky after applied so you need something on top to keep this in place.\for 3 dollars certainly worth a try.

I love this concealer more than I can ever explain! I have recently stopped my use of liquid foundation and I now solely rely on compressed powder and liquid concealer. I apply it over any blemishes and dark circles under the eyes and it works wonders! It goes on smoothly and as long as you do not apply the whole tube to your face, it will NOT look cakey (also make sure you get the right color for your skin tone!) I also love the fact that it does not make my skin appear orange. It provides me with a hint of color, and it definitely aids in hiding any imperfections. I will for sure continue to use this product!

Honestly, I have had the same bottle of concealer for this brand since last summer, but it dries to fast on my face. It seems to make my blemishes show up even more. My face looked patchy and it doesn't work as well as my past experiences with concealer.

I purchased the medium shade, and it is not medium at all. It's very light. The concealer is very light weight and smooth, and does not look cakey. It also has light coverage, it helped only a bit under my eyes. If you have light under eye circles, or blemishes, this would be good. Another good thing about this concealer is that it does not oxidize into a orange color:). Overall, it has a nice consistency and everything, but it does not come in a shade dark enough & does not offer too muchcoverage for me, so I will not be repurchasing.

As mentioned by other reviews, this has a perfect consistency (not too thin or thick), looks good over my dry patches, and the packaging doesn't allow this stuff to leak (thanks a lot, CG Fresh Complexion Concealer, for cracking) and I have this in Medium, which is a good match for me. But this fails in covering any blemishes, and this concealer has such light coverage it barely doesn't anything to my dark circles. If you don't have any serious things to cover up and have dry skin, this might be good for you but it didn't work for me.

I love this concealor, I have it in Light and use it every day under my eyes (I first apply moisturizer, foundation and powder). It doesn't crease and I like the doe-foot applicator. I did try the Medium shade just for kicks and it was slightly too dark. I'll repurchase this tho in the Light. No overpowering "makeup" scent, either. I paid about $3 at WalMart. Love it!

This could work for darker skin. I got the lightest shade but its too pink toned and it turned orange on me (nc5-nc15 mac). Consistency was nice and the packaging was fine. Didnt really like the product though.
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Dry, Medium, Warm Hair: Black, Straight, Fine Eyes: Brown
This is a pretty great product. I have it in Medium, and it blends easily but is well pigmented. As long as you don't apply too much it isn't cakey at all. I was also impressed by the packaging. This stuff doesn't ever leak. I feel like it doesn't totally cover my dark circles but they're darker than average so I don't think people will have a problem with the amount of coverage. It was $4. Overall it was good at a reasonable price.
I wouldn't buy it again because to try more concealers.

I LOVE this, this concealer is amazingly cheap, and i was really into the vitamins and antioxidants. The applicator isn't as great as i thought since it said precision applicator, but iI never have problems with concealer applicators, it blends so easily and smoothly. The smells a little...blah, but when I apply it on my face I don't smell anything :). This was like...$3.60CAD at Wal-mart :):).

I'm suprised that no one has posted a review on this product yet. It's truly a drugstore gem and I love it!
I actually bought this on impluse and debated returning it to the store shortly afterwards. I had purchased some new concealer a few days before and didn't really need this one, but I was too lazy to wait in line at PharmaPlus to return a C$5 product. Well, thank goodness for that, since I haven't stopped using this stuff since!
The packaging is identical to the new NYC Liquid Lipshines. I love how the container is sleek, cute, purse-approved and functional (no leaking!) all at the same time.
The concealer itself is a scentless liquid with a smooth consistency that's not too thick, not watery and not at all hard to blend. With the built-in applicator that looks like an improved doe-foot, I just dab it lightly under my eyes and on any problem areas around my face and blend it out with tapping motions using my middle and ring fingers. If you're concerned about keeping the applicator as hygienic as possible, you can dab the concealer on clean fingers instead of applying it directly on your face. A little goes a long way you so you should make sure that you use a light hand when dotting it around your face and not too much all at once.
This concealer is great in that it's easy to blend out, very pigmented, won't look cakey (if you know what you're doing), won't crease, won't emphasize dry patches and lasts throughout the day. I was specifically looking for a concealer that wouldn't cling to dry skin around my healing blemishes, and this concealer does that very well! You can also wear it above or underneath foundation without it affecting performance (I wear it underneath just so it blends better). For reference, I have dry skin that gets a little oily around my T-zone, so my staple products are usually liquid. I can see this concealer being too greasy for people with oily skin.
I don't like using this with pimples because when you blend it out, the coverage is not so good. It also takes a while to set if you've applied it thickly. The only other con I can think of is that it only comes in two shades (according to the NYC website), both of which are targeted towards fair skin tones. The darker shade, "Medium", is what I have and it fits me perfectly. I hope they come out with more shades soon.
I also use this product for on-the-go foundation touch-ups. I work from 8-5 most days and now that it's summer, my make-up doesn't stay on in certain places, even with primer and setting powder. A major problem area is around my lips. I eat, drink and talk a lot in those 9 hours and constantly have to reapply lip colour, so the foundation around my lips tends to get wiped off during the day. Instead of carrying a bulky bottle of foundation/tinted moisturizer in my bag, I just carry this baby around, dab lightly on the skin around my lips, blend, set with my Clinique compact powder and voilą, like new!
So if you've been looking to try out liquid concealer and are on the fence about this one, go for it! It's cheap, multifunctional, effective and just a great DS buy all in all. Definite repurchase for me!
