I have combination skin and I recently went through a break out phase where I got big red acne all over my face. It was so bad I was embarassed to go out to face people. I had difficulty in finding a concealer that didn't break me out and stayed matte throughout the day.
This concealer was my HG over that period (and still using it now). I purchased 040 Soft Beige (I am a NC20 for Mac and use Sand for Bobbi Brown conealer) The inner green concealer centre counteracted the redness and the outer beige concealer blended the spots. Most importantly it didn't break me out. Despite my acne leaving red scars on my face ( it is gradually fading) no one could tell I had skin issues when i used this concealer.
Staying power is pretty good considering my breakouts are usually around the oily parts of my face. I use the Rimmel Stay matte powder to set the concealer.
I rarely need to touch up, but if I do, i only need to use a little bit.
However I would not recommend this for dark eye circle as it fades quite quick and doesn't stay put.
It is relatively cheap, $11AUD and may be purchased anywhere. I usually purchase it at Priceline when there is a sale, don't think i have paid full price for this concealer yet and this is my third stick!
Packaging is ok, stick form but I like to use my brush. I don't like rubbing the stick directly onto my face for hygiene reasons.
When the stick is done, there is usually enough product left a the bottom for another 2 weeks. It is not hard to pull it apart (and put back together again) to reach the leftover concealer.
I would definitely recommend this product to people who wish to conceal spots.

I bought this foundation in 010 Ivory. This colour is possibly too pale for my skin however it is good for red patches and spots.
This product is a stick concealer designed to cover imperfections without clogging pores. It also has a green centre designed to treat imperfections.
The concealer provides great coverage, however it highlights dry skin due to the non-liquid nature of the concealer. Its great for covering redness however not as good for under eye circles as it can make you look a bit panda-y. Although this may be because I bought a shade too pale.
I am unconvinced by the green centre however, I'm not sure if it really treats spots and sometimes I feel it gives a green tinge to my make up.
Pros: Good coverage, cheap
Cons: Dry, green-tinge
