I use this concealer in the yellow 1020 color. It isn't my daily concealer, I save it for days when I have a giant red zit or the dark circles under my eyes are out of control. It is a bit too yellow to use on less extreme blemishes, it hides dark blue and red discoloration very very well. It seems to have significant mineral content, this goes on as cream but dries pretty quickly to a matte somewhat powdery finish. And it is quite inexpensive at about 5$ per tube. I've tried the green version they make as well but have not been able to make it work, I've heard green covers red very well but unfortunately on me it still looks green even under foundation and tinted powder.

Its okay but not spectacular. It covers okay but it does settle into creases around the eyes.

I really like this concealer, it is light enough for my skin, but still has that orange tint that cancels the blue in my under eye circles. It is very smooth and even though its cream, it does not budge easy.

i have the kind like the one below me
pros: covers BAD circles
isn't extremely drying
yellow can be hid with foundation
cons: can look too yellow if you don't use foundation on top
drying if you use too much
overall its a very good product, but i wo't buy again because i want something more moisturising, it won't blend in with you skin, but make it a few shades lighter, but its still very good.
EDIT very yellow and does not last or cover well enough

this is a creamy, very vibrant yellow (more red yellow than green yellow), concealer in "lipstick" form. i have a lot of redness and had used other yellow concealers in the past. i loved pf's yellow cubes one, but this is nothing like it. even with my dry skin the creaminess is a flaw here. it moves around too much, didn't look right, nor natural. its not water resistant as the other is. even without comparisons, its just not a great products for me.

Ok - the product I have says its Gentle Cover Cream Concealer but it's not a lipstick form and made by Physicians Formula. teh container looks like a lipgloss and even the application is similar to that of a lipgloss applicator. The consistency is that of liquid eraser in green! I wasn't sure that it would work since I've never tried a green concealer before. But, it's very good! I dab a small amount on the back of my hand and use my pinky to gently pat on the any red areas...mostly around the sides of my nose and a small section under my chin. No red...it's great! Then, powder foundation and I can't believe the result. I found this at Walgreen's for six dollar and change...not so bad since I don't use a lot but will be a part of my daily routine. It dries quickly because it's not a creamy consistency...it's more more water down. It does have talc but it's the 3 ingredients from the bottom and paraben is 7th from the bottom. I checked the Safety review, it's #4 on the scale of 0-10. Not too bad. Will buy again when I run out.

I'm very surprised to see such low ratings for this product. I have this in the light shade - and use it to cover minor blemishes. I think that this product is amazing. I trust physicians formula for all foundation products -- they're the only brand that does not cause my skin to break out. I would definitely repurchase this over and over again. This conceals, yet looks natural. I set this with the Physicians Formula Organic light powder. It's perfect. Would recommend this to anyone who has sensitive skin, but needs a little more coverage than using powder alone.

I bought the green formula to cover hyperpigmentation brought on by acne. I am a woman of color and have medium brown skin with discoloration ranging from brown to red. It took multiple layers to hide the spots but this resulted in pale patches which would need to be covered up with foundation (which I don't wear--I use tinted pressed powder).
The application was even and creamy and I think women with lighter skin would be happy with this product. I'm giving this a poor rating because I'm frustrated with products that should be universal but aren't. Yet another tube of something that will go straight in the trash.

This concealer was a bit too dry around my eyes I was actually okay with the color of this product but thought it dried a bit too cakey.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination Hair: Brunette Eyes: Green
I bought this concealer in Light. Sadly, it creases up quickly under my eyes so I discontinued use. I now only use it occasionally when I have a small redness issue somewhere else on my face but only in a pinch.

No. Not even a little bit.
However it DOES cover if by cover you mean replace my dark undereye circles with Y-E-L-L-O-W, the kind of YELLOW that their mineral makeup is unable to contend with and in fact NO foundation I own in my arsenal can overcome, then mission accomplished.
Creamy in the sense its an unyielding goo that will not be removed without the means of a priest, some holy water and some serious cleanser.
I am not pleased. As so many ladies before me I felt perhaps I did something wrong, had to be me. I tried again and again but I'm afraid its too late to return and will now sit, unused, at the bottom of my makeup box. (Guilt forbids me from throwing something out unless its become expired. And I will most likely keep it until the day a friend fetches it from my box and asks "What's this?", a little gift for her to take home. I know.. I'm a bad girl. *shame*)
However if ever a Halloween comes where I decide to be an oompa loompa.. I'm all set. Yeah! :)
(Clearly I used to the yellow version, maybe you'll have more luck with fair but still.. I'd strongly suggest trying something else. Yuck.)

Wow, I can't believe all of the bad reviews this product is receiving! I have both the green and the yellow cream concealer and I like them both. My green concealer was the first cosmetic product I've actually used until it's totally and completely gone. I have "ruddy" cheeks and this green concealer, when mixed with my foundation, works wonders. My foundation alone does not completely neutralize the redness but with this green concealer, my skin is a perfectly flawless single shade. I do agree, however, that the yellow cream concealer is a bit yellow for some skin tones but when used sparingly, it's great for undereye circles.

I used this product under my eyes to conceal my dark circles. I found the product to be very sticky and very yellow. I was too yellow to be natural and when i put another more skin-colored concealer over it, it got even more unnatural. I think the packaging is very cheap also. So this was a very bad product.

What I like: This covers perfectly small imperfections, such as a pimple. The colour blends perfectly with my skintone and the packaging is easy to use. PF also do not test their products on animals.
What I don't like: This stuff never seems to dry! It doesn't have the powder finish that I love and it stays creamy on my skin (especially under my eyes, for a pimple it's not as bad). I absolutely need to wear a loose powder (I use PF Loose-to-go powder) over it so it comes smooth. And I can't stand the smell, thankfully it is not so strong.
Final verdict: This is an okay concealer, but not for undereye area. Also quite cheap.

I was looking for a concealer that would hide skin discoloration above my lip and bought this while on my quest for a HG concealer. It's economical and I thought that a cream would be easier to apply than a stick (I bought this one too, just for good measure). I bought the Yellow, as I read here that this would help with dark skin discoloration (e.g. under eye circles).
It turned out that even though it was easier to apply and blend in, I didn't have any better results than the stick. Although not cakey, I was not able to fully conceal the product under my foundation. I looked like I had a light milk mustache, not the look I wanted. Good product, just not for those with skin tones darker than medium.

I agree, it cakes, but it makes a pimple look almost invisible, I stopped using this in about 3 days because it dry me out too much... so I just use it when I get a pimple to cover it up
Age: 25-29 Skin: Dry Hair: Brown Eyes: Green
Not good for under eye treatment. Cakes in fine lines and looks awful. Might be good for other cover-ups.
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Dry Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
its really dry under eyes..you really have to moisturize but it does make my eyes look brighter when i put it under.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Oily Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
This is dry and creases when I use it under my eyes, but it's excellent for blemishes. I have the yellow one and I dab, dab, dab to perfectly conceal acne and freckles. I'm eager to try other concealers in this line.
