This product is very cheap for the amount of product you get. All i can say is wow to the coverage and texture. This is definitely the one of the best concealers i have ever bought. It really does look like skin when applied correctly-a little goes a long way. I prefer using this product with my fingers as it warms it up a tad and allows it to melt into my skin.
I have pretty good skin already so on a moisturised face and no foundation, apply this to my dark circles and redness...it simply looks lovely, fresh and natural. The texture is only slightly creamier than mac studio finish but is no where near creamy like kevyn aucoin sensual skin enhancer.
I bought y1 and y2 so i can mix the shades. I range from a mac nc25-30 so the two colours are great depending on how tan i am. I may get y3 in summer but for now, these two colours are doing an awesome job!
#update i decided i prefer this as a blemish/ redness concealer as i definitely prefer a creamy texture under my eyes. If you arent picky, this is a good all rounder!

LOVE ! One of the best I have used, was very sad after my favorite mac concealer was discontinued so decided to try. I'm nw10 in mac foundation and believe I got the R0 in this. You only need a little bit and the coverage is great. I don't like how easy the writing has come off the top of the jar though. Still a great product and lasts for ages ! Worth the investment.

This is my HG concealer. Super pigmented, you only need the tiniest bit, blends well, and doesn't crease as much as other concealers I have used. Living in Canada I had to order online, so I just took a gamble and ordered the lightest shade and it worked out. Not the cheapest, but will last a long time and is cruelty-free!

I bought this concealer via mail order from New York after reading reviews on another website. I was assured that it was heavily pigmented, so I thought that it would easily cover my dark circles and other small flaws. It was pretty expensive before shipping costs were added at $25 for a small pot.
I got the lightest shade (Y0) as I'm particularly pale with obvious yellow undertones. While it does a so-so job of concealing under the eyes (it's not any more pigmented than many other stick/pot types of concealers I've tried), it creeps into lines so badly I have to say that it's one of the worst ones I've tried as an under-eye concealer. And despite being the lightest yellow-based shade the company makes, it's actually dark on my jaw-line (and not elsewhere on my face) and is awful for concealing small blemishes around the chin area.
It also doesn't do such a stellar job of actually covering up flaws. I have to apply several layers just to begin to hide a relatively simple flaw, like a small acne scar, and it's not very good for buildable coverage.
Also, the packaging leaves a lot to be desired. I use a concealer brush to apply the product, but I have to frequently wipe the surface of the product off because the packaging's design lets a lot of fibers from my makeup brush and just from the surrounding environment settle on to the surface of the concealer in the pot. Yuck!
For the cost of the product, this concealer was a waste of money and was overall just a mediocre product.

I bought this in Y0 which matches me perfectly. The concealer comes in a pot ( .8 grams) and has full coverage with a hard but creamy texture.I use my fingers to blend this under my eyes and on blemishes. It covers well but can't quite cover a bright blue vein under my eye (although I've never had a concealer that covers it completely). It looks a little cakey if I don't moisturize right before putting it on. The lasting power is great but it can crease if i don't set it with a powder. Overall, I like this concealer but it's not my HG.

I just got this in Y3 which is too dark (I'm nc40 for MAC, sable beige in teint idole) Otherwise the formula is very good; when mixed with water (my finger was wet) it thins down so it can be thin and runny or thicker depending on how you want it. There is no clumpiness or cakiness that I can tell. I'm so bummed that I got a shade too dark :/

I like this, but it isn't magical.
I'm NW15, and none of the shades appeared to be an exact match. So I got R0, which is almost white, and R1,which is a bit too deep to match my skin, and am using them in tandem.
First, I apply a very small amount (less really is more, with this product!) of R1, over the areas that need concealing (light acne scars) and dab R0 over that. Then I buff my mineral powder foundation over all. The result is not utter perfection, but I'm realist enough not to expect to look like a flawless16-year-old.
This stays well on my *extremely* oily skin, is not obvious, and covers well. So I'm happy.
I think I'd buy this again, though I wish I didn't have to buy two at a time, to match my skin.

I bought this about a month ago and have used it a few times. I must say that I am quite happy with this product. It is the best that I have used and I would purchase again due to the following facts 1. There is a lot of product in the jar, it is filled to the top 2. The price is not to bad 3. The texture is a nice cream that is not greasy but not too dry once on the skin 4. The packaging is not to flashy but not to plain and most important 5. The yellow based shade is actually yellow based and I realised this after putting on my Nars foundation which claims to be yellow based and actually appears more red based next to the concealer. I noticed this after applying concealer on the eye area and applying Nars foundation on the rest of my face. I noticed just how yellow based and natural looking the concealer was under artificial light and natural light. I am awaiting the arrival of the OCC tinted moisturiser and will no longer be using the Nars sheer matte!

I like the shade range. I have both R0 and Y0. R0 is perfect for covering circles and brightening my eyes. Y0 is a better color for red spots (the yellowy beige undertones help neutralize the color). The concealer is similar to MAC Studio Fix, but not cakey or as heavy. I like to blend this out with a dual fiber eye brush for the best results. This concealer is not my HG yet, but it's pretty awesome. For shade reference I wear MUFE HD 110 or MAC Studio Fix powder in N3.

Despite being VIOLENTLY allergic to castor oil and lanolin, of which it apparently contains a SIGNIFICANT amount of castor oil, I wanted to try it. I've been able to use things with a small amount of castor oil in it as long as I have a barrier (like foundation or something) between my face and the product, much like with mineral foundations. I ordered the Y1 and R1 shades based on Temptalia's swatches after reading about 15 various reviews, seeing lots of positives on the Makeup Board and viewing several more on YouTube. That was a lot of hype and buildup...and sadly NO delivery at all. It's supposed to have insane coverage and high opacity...and there is none of either. I have SERIOUS circles, I seriuosly look like I've been beaten up. My life's mission is to cover them since short of surgery, nothing will fix it.
My order arrived yesterday, about 5 days after ordering. The packaging, for me anyway, was really nice. I liked the size of the jar, and the bottle, and though Im not usually a fan of pot concealers, I liked that there was a LOT of product for the price, $20 per jar. I ordered 1 Y1 Skin Tint, and 1 Y1 and 1 R1 Concealer. I will review the skin tint separately from this.
At first glance, I was really surprised how dark R1 really was. I remember seeing the swatches and thinking "whoa that's dark!" but decided it was worth a shot bec R0 looked SUPER white. It almost seems like they need an R .5 or something. Halfway. The Y1 was a fantastic color. Just olive enough to blend in enough. The jar is a really decent size, and has a really great amount o fproduct. The reviews I'd read and watched online indicated that you would not need much.
So I unscrewed the lid and started in on it. My first thought was...the texture is kind of odd. Creamy but not really that creamy. It took some serious swirling of my finger on the surface to pick any of the product up. From all the reviews I'd read, that was not what I expected. As far as coverage? Also not what was built up. It was also ridiculously sheer and would not stick to the skin. I must be missing something...or is my batch different than the reviewer's batches?
I started with the R1, just to try to offset the blue/purple. Barely covering anything but very red-orange on the skin. This image seems to have blown it out a bit, but I looked like I had wiped a little light baby coral lip stick under there. Besides that, it creased like very few products I've ever seen before.
I then layered on some Y1. I did one eye with just finger blending, and without any R1 under it, and then the other with a damp beauty blender sponge and fingers OVER the R1. Neither looked any different, and it seemed like it just sticks to itself and lifts right off the skin. It is NOT a product you can layer over itself without removing the first layer. So after literally 20 minutes of messing with this stuff, then cleaning it off and trying again for another 10 minutes (a HALF HOUR of my morning gone!)..I gave up and powdered to try to stop the creases from being so significant. But that didn't help either. So right now I am sitting here with a bunch of concealer in my eye creases, and very little on my skin itself covering anything. So I can't even give much of a coverage assessment, but even one layer was super sheer on the skin and didn't neutralize or cover my circles. It just would not stay put or dry.
To say I am disappointed is a huge understatement. It was so built up that I should not be surprised I am disappointed. But I am. The Y1 was a fantastic color for me, but if it's not going to cover anything OR stay on my skin...it's not worth the reaction I am going to inevitably get from the castor oil. So it has to go back.
