I’ve ordered this in color nude by mistake. And of course it s really too light for my dark tan complexion (NC43 in Mac).

But I’m happy with this color and use it to lighten concealers which are too dark, it s the perfect color for highlighting for me!

The consistency is quite thick, reminds me of a heavy BB cream. Yet the coverage is not opaque at all : it offers a medium coverage with such a natural result and feeling to the touch. It dries mat but is not drying like pro longwear for example. The consistency is really great!

Price : wonderful!! It s so inexpensive that I m looking to buy it in other colors (probably tan for winter and almond for summer). It s one of the best drugstore concealer I ve tried.

LOOOVEEEE!!! I bought it on a whim at a Marshalls a few weeks back and its the only concealer i reach for! it covers my circles a 100% and lasts through 8 hour work days with no problem. I'm thinking of buying more shades for my kit and for when my skin tone changes with the seasons!

After my regular concealer went out of production, I were scanning the internet for the best concealer to replace it. As a fulltime student I can't afford to buy any high-end makeup and was looking for one that was affordable, but did it's work. After doing some research I found that E.L.F.'s Studio Maximum Coverage Concealer got good reviews and came in very light shades. Being superpale this was a plus.

I bought the lightest shade, however it was still around 2 shades too dark so I have to mix it with my white foundation (manic panic white). The foundation do not affect the consistence of concealers or foundations normally. When I apply the concealer, it does not go on smooth and the consistency is weird. For the most even result I use a beautyblender, but it does not lay smoothly under my eye and I look worse when I set it with powder. Yes, I've tried to apply it without mixing it with white foundation and it isn't as bad then, but it does not match up at all to my expectations! However I don't know how it will work on other skintypes and shades. But to me as a person with really pale and dry skin, this was a real let-down.

Pros:
- Price
- Amount of product for the price
- Packaging

Cons:
- Uneven
- Doesn't look natural
- Does not give promised maximum coverage
- Get worse if you mix it to a lighter shade
- Not in any really light shades

I initially just wanted a concealer for under my eyes since I have really deep circles. I was using just a stick and powder foundation and wanted a liquid, I could never find one because I can't use foundations and concealers with cyclops and propylene glycol in them. So this was one of the rare ones that didn't have those things in it. (Trust me, there are very few cosmetics, especially concealers and foundations that don't have those ingredients). Some of the ones I saw seemed too thick like glamoflauge and that kind of scared me away as I tend to like a more natural finish anyway. So knowing this was more of a medium coverage, I figured I'd try it. I got it in Porcelain and Sand in case I wanted to try it on my face but I usually just use the Porcelain under my eyes.

So far I really like it. I use their hydrating under eye primer too and I feel I have a much less dry and creased under eye. I tried it a few times on my face and I haven't had a break out or bad reaction to it at all. I do like it so far as far as coverage and consistancy. I would get it again. I'm happy with it.

Update: The more I use this the more I love it. I got confident and started using the Sand on my face after all, somewhat more like a foundation. The color is excellent for me, in my opinion. It feels soooo nice, not thick and gross or slippery. I've been adding this to my stick or liquid foundation or occasionally or even alone and then I finish with a powder foundation either way. But I'm certain it doesn't cause problems and I'm ok with the medium coverage as well. Some days I want more on some spots but overall this works enough for my needs.

CONS: Thin, not full coverage (light to medium)

This concealer is nothing special, its okay for the price but doesn't quite cover that well. It can't even cover my dark circles even after colour correcting it. Maybe it's just my panda under eyes but honeslty it really did ntg for me.

This concealer gives a pretty decent cover for your blemishes, but in my case I have to apply it twice on the same spot to cover it. I would still highly recommend this product, since it's cheap yet pretty good!

I actually mix it with my foundation and it gives me a medium to full coverage with a flawless finish. I get compliments on my foundation when I do this :)

It definitely lives up to its label of "MAXIMUM COVERAGE" and more importantly it does not irritate my sensitive combination skin. What really impressed me was how well it lasted even after my workout. I have the shade "TAN" which is a perfect colour match for me, I'm slightly lighter than olive and have very yellow undertones.

I haven't purchased concealer in a while because I was so in love with my Dream Lumi concealer. This caught my eye because the packaging recommended that it could be used to cover tattoos. Now I don't have any tattoos, but I figured it must have some decent coverage to be making a claim like that! Anyway, I purchased this in Porcelain at $8.00 Australian. I liked the size of the product, in fact, I have never seen concealer quite as large as this. I also liked the delivery method being a squeeze tube. When I tried this on the back of my hand in the store, it seemed rather thick. When I applied it on my undereye area, I was surprised to find that it spread really easily and blended easier than my Dream Lumi concealer. I have my doubts as to whether this would effectively cover tattoos as they claim, but for undereye concealing, this is really, really good. I also like the fact that the product doesn't change colour or cake or crease by the end of the day. I have purchased a few ELF products in the past and been a bit disappointed. This is a keeper for me. I really cannot find anything to fault about it and it has made me want to have another look at this brand.
