I bought this after seeing it featured in a YouTube "love" segment. I have only used the product a handful of times, but am already in love. The 3 in 1 is great. I apply the liquid to sun spots and any discoloration and use the stick on my under eye circles. Both formulas cover well and don't leave that greasy/waxing feel most concealer a leave behind. This concealer blends very well, I use the roller ball end to blend the concealer into my skin and then apply my makeup as usual. It didn't settle into fine lines like heavy concealers seem to do. My only complaint is this product needs to come in more colors as it is a little light for my skin, therefore I must put in under my BB Creme. The formula is high coverage, but light and matte on my skin. Most concealers I have tried seem to disappear quickly and I feel like I need to continuously apply them to keep my cover all day, or my face feels like a grease pit. Not this product! One application lasts all day long, even sitting out sweating in the sun in the park I was still covered. $12 is a great price for 2 different concealers and so far it agrees with my sensitive skin.
Bottom line: great coverage, 2 formulas, doesn't feel heavy or greasy, blends nicely, matte without drying out the skin. In fact this covers and blends so well that I could get away with just using this product if it was a little darker. As I said I've only used this a handful of times and will update if it fails me, but so far so good.

There's a sucker born every minute and I'm one of them. I was in the ds, doing my usual "while I'm here getting toothpaste, is there anything new?" when the words "Youthful Wear" and the before/after picture on the bright purple pkg of a woman looking much younger, and yes, much more "made up" than in the before picture caught my eye. I love those pictures. It's amazing what good lighting and a little lip color can do.
Despite the fakery, I thought, maybe it is a better concealer for ageing skin than the Revlon Age Defying DNA Advantage stuff I'm using now, and it's only $12.00. So I decided to try it, and I can tell you, no it is not better than the Revlon Age Defying.
The Physician's Formula (PF) comes in a confusing "3-in-1" pkg. It has a small bottle of liquid concealer at the bottom w/ the ubiquitous doe's foot applicator, a middle section containing a concealer stick, and on the other end, an odd roller ball thing that does not seem connected to either product. It's just a ball that rolls around in nothing. Nothing comes out. So the pkg is more like 2-in-1 w/ an empty ball applicator on one end. Do people actually apply the stick or liquid and then roll this ball around on it? For what? To make a mess? Massage the eye area? I don't know.
Anyway, on to the product. The liquid is thicker, drier and more cakey than the Revlon Age Defying. It settled into and accentuated every little line, flake and bump much more than the Revlon. It accumulated in my lid creases. It wasn't terrible, and the color of this "Light + Light" matched my pale, yellowish skin pretty well. The coverage level was decent. There is also no bothersome fragrance. However, for ageing skin, the Revlon Age Defying works much better. As I stopped using sticks around my eyes at least 20 years ago, I only tried the stick on non-eye areas. It was nothing special, and the coverage level was minimal - NOTHING like the HG Estee Lauder Maximum cover camouflage mu I use for imperfections on the face.
If you already have younger looking skin around the eyes, this should be OK. But if you have fine lines, flakes, and imperfections that need good coverage, spend your $$ on the Revlon Age Defying and / or the EL instead.
