Love love love this concealer palette. I'm a freelance makeup artist, so I'm always looking for products that can provide a large variety of product for a decent price. These concealers are amazing. Depending on the skin, you might have to use a mixing medium. The concealer alone works great for younger "thicker" skin. However, if you are using it on more mature skin, you would definitely want use a mixing medium to prevent creasing in wrinkles. This product also covers tattoos really well. I highly recommend using purchasing this, especially makeup artists!

This will be similar to my review on Ben Nye's Mellow Yellow concealer since this palette contains it and I bought this in conjunction with a pot of the MY-1 Fair. I was hoping it would solve all my concealing needs... all mainly on my face- dark purple undereye circles, some discoloration, and minor acne/blemishes. After trying really hard with application, layering, priming, etc. I've found that these concealers are not appropriate for undereye use. It does have amazing amazing AMAZING coverage, and is not heavily greasy, and is also an amazing price, BUT... this concealer is cake city!!! Because of its thickness, it should be set with powder under the eyes or it will move around very easily, particularly over moisturizer. Unfortunately it instantly turns to a cakey, creasy, annoying mess. It also needs to be applied seamlessly, or it's extremely apparent you're wearing heavy makeup up close. This product looks great from a distance, but up close, forget it. I suppose that's what it's designed for since it is stage makeup. I've also stopped using this on my face because it has broken me out wherever I've used it. There are some heavy oils/waxes (and parabens) in it so be careful. I must also mention though, on every other area, this product works wonders. WONDERS! It can cover absolutely anything. And not only that, it comes in a plethora of colors and shades. I have very fair skin, and there's plenty of shades to match. This palette has every kind of pigment you could need, and you can always mix and match and layer. I use the colors to cover veins, scars, and redness on my legs, and it's also advertised to be able to cover tattoos, etc. Each pot will last quite some time as well. The packaging is great other than the chinsy plastic lids that cover each concealer. They can be a little touchy to pull off, and if you're not careful, they'll split right open. But the heavy-duty metal case and brush that comes with it work great- the brush is really better than using your fingers. I would probably try out a pot of one concealer first before splurging on this more expensive palette to make sure you like what the concealers do. Although it has struck out for me on the face, I will repurchase for use as a body concealer. You won't find better!

I am in love with professional concealers, and Ben Nye concealers are no exception. Why, oh why, did I waste so much money over the years on drugstore and department store concealers that were more grease than pigment, that didn't work to cover anything up for me?
This palette contains generous quantities of very pigmented concealers designed to neutralize and/or cover up any possible cosmetic problem you could think of, from acne scars to a tattoo you would like to cover up, to rosacea, to extremely dark blue-green undereye shadows/veins.
For roughly $40, which isn't much more than what a couple of department store concealers would set you back, you have a set of concealers that actually work, plus a taklon brush that works better than any other concealer brush I've yet to use. I'd imagine this palette would last most people several years, and when you do run out of one pan, you can buy a replacement pan of concealer for about $7.00.
Seriously, ladies, don't waste your money on any other concealers besides the professional ones (Dermablend, Ben Nye, Kryolan, Joe Blasco) - don't make the same mistake I did of thinking professional makeup was meant only for the stage and wasn't "real" makeup.

This product is ok to have around in a pinch, but not the best around. Too expensive for what you get.

I love this palette! It's a lifetime supply of so many wearable colors! Of the twelve colors, there is only one that I do not use (Studio Beard Cover). I adore all the other colors, though, and if you can use just five shades out of the palette, it has paid for itself.

This pallette of 12 pots of concealers will do everything. There is tattoo cover and scar cover and all degrees and types of concealer for various color problems. The pots are replaceable so I can change the pallette gradually to the items I use most. Ben Nye has something really good with their concealer variety. They compare favorably in price with other concealers, too.

I agree! This palette really is the best. The quality of these concealers is awesome and rivals the quality of high end brands, as do other BN products. With this palette, you're all set! You can cover up a variety of imperfections. The concealers also wear very well. You get 12 pots, each containing around 3g of product for about $38-40 this is a steal!

This is a large palette that contains 12 replacable colors of concealers and neutralizers. Mostly suitable for fair to medium tones, it contains a wide range of colors for just about every purpose from tattoo and scar cover to green concealer to neutralize redness to multiple tones of good old fashioned concealer. I've yet to have a skin disaster this can't fix!
