Not really impressed with this concealer. I like the cube packaging, but i often find mine comes open which is slightly annoying. This is terrible for the under eye area - Settles into lines and even seems to create more! It is okay for regular concealing of spots/redness etc but it doesn't seem to last long and sticks to any dry skin. I wanted to like this, but I'm glad i got it on sale because it really isn't worth the price.

I used this and it didn't help cover up redness at all. All it did do was leave me with spots that showed through my foundation. It dries out easily also. I do NOT reccomend this.

I have pretty nice skin except for the occasional red pimple so I don't like to wear foundation in case it makes me break out more. I wear this concealer buy itself after applying lots of light moisturiser. The cube is really cute and convenient but the concealer sometimes gets a little flaky. You only really have to use a really light layer, otherwise it flakes. This thing will take forever to use, it'll probably dry out before I finish it but it was well worth the price.

I absolutely love this concealer cube. For one, there's so much concealer in this, it's hard to run out. When I first put this on over my blemishes, I was suprised to see that it looks like I have no blemishes at all! It covers up all of the redness, & gets rid of any shape of the blemish. You might want to be careful when putting foundation on over this, or put it over your foundation. It rubs off slightly easily when you use a makeup sponge over it. Otherwise, the best concealer I've ever used!

Yet another review for Physicians Formula for me. I really like this concealer. While I agree the mirror is ineffective, and they could probably streamline the packaging by doing away with it - concealers usually do not have a mirror anyway. It covers the slightest imperfection, and works great on the eyelids before applying makeup - making your lids smooth and help keep the eyeshadow on. I am faithful to this little cube - haven't had any problems with it falling apart, and lasts for quite a long time. You can easily pull out the concealer in the corners with a cue tip or a wooden cuticle stick.

Decent concealer. I thought it was the best until I started shopping at Sephora. It is one of the best I've gotten from a drug store though and the cube lasted forever.

First, I have to say that this product is pretty good at covering blemishes. However, it does nothing to cover under eye circles. It makes the dark area a bit lighter, but in no way conceals it. The best use I have for this product is putting it on my eye lids. It covers those tiny little veins when I don't have time to use eye shadow. I am not a fan of the packaging. While it is cute, it is completely impractical. At this point, I am to the bottom and can't hardly get to any more of the concealer. So there it is, just sitting there, wasting away cuz I can't get it out. Plus, the mirror in the lid, it's too tiny! Who can use that for anything?! I doubt that I'd repurchase this.

i have always like their yellow concealer, first tried it when they were selling samples at wal-mart. loved it so much i stepped up to the bigger size, well i was fooled because i thought i was getting an actual cube, but alas, it's only half full because the other half is for this tiny mirror that is cute but once again has no real use, i would rather have more concealer. can't have everything i guess, but i love the product but now that my cube is getting low i'm having trouble getting it out of the cube at the bottom and getting my full money's worth, the product is good but they need to work on the packaging, it really covered up my dark eye circles well!

Well I had the same problems other reviewers had with the packaging- its just the bottom part now, and I cant imagine that tiny mirror being effective to judge overall coverage. It actually DOES cover well (at least eliminates redness), but I have very light skin and its hard to get makeup that matches. So it does look horribly orange on my skin, I wonder why Physician's Formula insists that "light" for everyone is that orange. Anyway I put on my really light concealer (Cover Girl) OVER it, if for nothing else to make it a little less obvious. Would I buy again? Probably not. PF is pretty expensive for me.

With a few strokes of a brush, this concealer blends beautifully into the skin. It doesn't aggrevate my acne and has great staying power. The packaging is the weakest aspect of this product - the cube falls apart easily and the mirror is too small to be useful. However, this product doesn't dry out easily. After the cube broke, I was afraid that the concealer's days were numbered, but it still has the same consistency as when I got it 3 months ago (the cube broke within 2 weeks of purchase).

I liked this stuff alot. It covered every imperfection on my face. Its also small enough to fit in your bag.... really small . It worked on dark circles too! The onlybad thing is that the packaging sucks it falls apart. but all inall id buy it again.

Packaging was very cute, I loved the little cube. Unfortunately, when I opened it up, the mirror inside the cube came unglued. Bad sign number one. The concealer itself didn't match my skin tone at all and it only comes in one shade. It's very difficult to get out of the cube, even more difficult to blend into your skin. The areas I applied it too looked worse with that cakey, too-pale stuff just sitting on my face.

I have oily skin, and this dries to a matte finish, almost powdery but not the i just threw flour on my face look. Very nice concealer, ill definetly buy again. Cute packaging too.

This covers up my undereye circles pretty well. I was a bit dissapointed when I opened the cube up and found that there was only one shade. The packaging makes it look like two! For roughly $5, I would not get this again since it was a ripoff.

I picked this up at the d/s because I am always compulsively on the hunt for a decent concealer. And I guess the hunt must go on. . . I was attracted to the cute packaging, of course, and also the claim of a "high-tech" cream-to-powder formula (!) I don't care much about high-tech, but cream-to-powder sounded like what I was looking for. The shade selection sucks, but light seemed pretty close, and it seemed to cover all right. It could be a little easier to blend, though, it was sort of tacky/ sticky feeling. Staying power was not signficantly worse than other concealers I tried. I gave this one a low-rating because after one day of use, (doing nothing else differently) this made me develop a small pimple right on the delicate skin under my eye! I never ever EVER break out in the location, so I'm blaming poor little magic cube and discontinuing my use of it. TOo bad. It was nothing great, but alright with this exception.

What a cute little product! The color selection isn't great, but light works for me. I like its thicker consistency and staying power. Did I mention how cute the packaging is? However, when I first picked it up off the shelf, I thought there was concealer in both halves of the cube. When I got home, I discovered that the top half was just some plastic in the same color as the concealer with a little mirror. **Update: After using it several times, the consistency wasn't as creamy. It turned somewhat dry and hard to apply, so I ended up returning it. I still think the packaging is cute though. I saw a very similar packaging in a lip gloss at Gap.

This is one of the better concealers I've tried. The packaging is a bit deceptive. It looks like the entire cube in filled with the product, but it's only half. The other side is the mirror- which I found to be too small to be useful. For the price, you are paying for only a small ammount of product- the rest is the packaging, which is pretty cute!
~Edited to add:~ After a few months, this product dried up very badly. Won't repurchase.

Yet anouther rave here for PF. The packaging is genius! So portable too. It is a little tricky to open, but once its open you see a small mirror designed for touchups. The concealer itself is pretty good. Very natural looking, and its buildable. I have horrible dark circles and this covered most of them, but it still wasn't a total HG.
