Way too dry. The brush is too small, too. Good idea though.

i have a love hate relationship with this product. Both products are rather dry. I have to rub the product a bit with my finger to melt it and make it creamy before i apply or it would look unbelievably cakey. The actual concealer is a bit too light for me. but once i set the product with my all over face powder, it works out. i do like the yellow correcting color. It does conceal my under eye circles very well. I just wish it wasnt so dry. I normally apply a primer on first before so it doesnt look all cakey and it also allows the product apply on alot smoother. Hmm, the brush is a very small , flimsy useless thing. Threw that out. I dont see how it would work with something so dry.

The packaging is soo tacky, most cheap makeup look really professional and expensive these days but this looks like it was founded in a dumbing area. The brush that it comes it was soooo tiny that it can't even pick up any product at all, again tackiness. The concealer itself was worst it did not provide any coverage at all and if it did it just looks like a cakey mess.

This concealer is very cakey, dryish, and the color choices for the flesh tones are very limited. The yellow is kinda cool, I used it to cover dark circles, works well if you try to ignore the little bumps the concealer creates under my eye....

I use the one with green, and it works great to cover acne! Best concealer I have ever used to cover up zits. I really like the little brush cause it lets you cover with more precision than your finger, and you can use it to mix the green & beige before applying for the perfect zit-camouflaging shade! I also don't think it's cakey it you just used it to cover zits, but maybe if you use it under your eyes. I don't use it under my eyes so it's not a problem for me. It seems to have good coverage and staying power, probably due to its cream/solid form, which is probably also the culprit for cakeyness. So, moral of the story, this is great for covering individual zits but probably not large areas of skin, under the eyes, or dry areas.

I have this in the green and beige color.....it would be ok but it's way too dry and cakey....really difficult to apply as it drags over my skin. If it was creamier it would be good. They should change the formula

This product seems to be working for me. I'm using the duo with the green, because I have VERY red, sensitive skin.
My skin in extremely dry mostly, but can become pretty oily with the wrong products. This stuff really helped with the redness caused by acne, and general redness. I found it works wonderfully on my nose, which gets red/shiny a couple hours in.
My method in making this stuff work for me is first washing my face, apply moisturizer, and then put the green on any red spots on my face.
I've also noticed that this helps make my skin look a lot more even.
After that I put on my liquid foundation, then reapply the green to any spots that are still a bit red (usually my nose) Then I use the other side to balance out the green, and some finishing powder.
This is heavy coverage and not an every day thing, but has been working for me really well. What I like most about this product? It's natural, great for sensitive skin, and as this is only the second day that i've had it, I'm pretty sure it won't make me break out, as I have used Physicians Formula products before and never had an acne problem.

I see a lot of bad reviews which makes me think some don't know how to use this exactly. This is a great product, you get tons, lasts a long, long time and I mean that both in amt of product, and on your face. This is a very water resistant, sweat resistant, cream to powder finish concealer. Do all your mu, but for setting powder, then use this on a small eye linger brush ( with tiny diameter tip) on any spots you have. The yellow can be mixed with the other color or used alone on redness for a more natural look than green to neutralize. Apply setting powder but lightly so as not to disturb the concealer, and you will have all day concealment that looks natural (especially if you also set with a light spritz of water after everything else).
As an under eye concealer this probably won't please many but then cream to powder can be drying for that area.

i dont use this as a typical concealer. i put moisturizer on my face, then primer, then a tinted luminizer and i use this to just even everything out. i use my sonia kashuk flatop and pick up both the yellow and the flesh color and put it under my eyes and nose area and around my mouth and then just brush to blend over the rest of my face and its a beautiful finish. i dont have to top with powder just blush and bronzer if i want. i got this on clearance but if i found it again i would buy it.

I don't believe this is a concealer because it doesn't cover anything! Its incredibly hard to blend and just looks bad when it dries. It turns flakey fast and trying to put the color over the yellow is practically impossible. The brush it comes with is a joke, it really only gets all the concealer into the bristles. Even when you apply with your fingers you get the same ugly, blotchy, flakey looking skin. I was very upset that I could not return this. I tried it as an eyeshadow base since as an actual concealer it was a fail, and it is 100% all over horrible product. Stay away!!! :(

I can't even begin to explain how bad this is. It is sooooo drying, that I have flakes and patches of dry skin under my eyes ( where i put it) WHO gets dry skin under their eyes? That area is always so soft and delicate? I Do! After I used this terrible product. Here is the breakdown:
1) Drying to skin
2) Extremely hard to blend and hard to get out of package without rubbing hard
3)Does not even cover well, very blotchy.
4) way too light and Yellowish, even under makeup. I looked like a ghost!
5) almost 10 bucks.
6)Made my skin burn and itch

I have this in the green/light version. I bought it for the green as I was having a lot of problem with redness.
The brush is trash. It doesn't even penetrate the product. Then again, the product is rock hard in the pans. I resorted to using my fingers to warm and remove some product, but then realized that my fingers are much too big to apply the concealer properly. After all, I didn't want giant green polka dots on my face. Like a reviewer below me, I used my blow dryer to heat it up, and, similarly, it was powdery and flaky when it dried.
I have since gotten myself a concealer stick (looks like a green lipstick) in green and it's much creamier and works much better.
Pass this product up!

I have the green and skin tone coloured one. First of all, throw away the brush provided in the packaging; its no good trust me but i might use it for painting. I have to use a hot blow dryer to warm up the product to get it to a creamy consistency. After i pat it on it turns out powdery and dry looking on my skin or over a blemish even with a good moisturizer. The green concealer is too light for my skin tone (NC 30 in MAC & for smashbox in Light 3) so like i have a light to medium skintone. The skintone concealer matches my skin alright but is better match for under my eyes. Even when i use it under my eyes it makes my skin look dry. Wouldn't recommend this for combination dry skin

I LOVE this product! I got it primarily for the green color since I have a lot of redness but ended up using the skin tone even more! It is thick enough to cover even the toughest zits but creamy enough to look natural. The brush isn't that great but that is why we fork out the big bucks for brushes! It did not break me out at all and really does the job for everything I need to conceal! Will definitely buy again!!

I don't have too much experience with concealers, but I definitely know this isn't what they're supposed to be like! Makeup (of any kind) is supposed to be easy to blend and not dry out when in its original container. This is about as hard to get out of the compact as cold butter is to spread on a piece of toast. Although, I will give it credit for ONE positive thing, it does brighten my under-eye circles a bit, but not enough for me to ever purchase it again. I will be going to Ulta to see what someone there can recommend for me. This was my first experience with Physicians Formula, and needless to say, I am not impressed in the least.

ew ew ew.. this product should be put to sleep.

i throw it away after the 3rd time use... again (i throw away the elf one too). i think it's as bad as the elf concealer plate (the 4 color ones) except it's a lot more expensive than the elf one. it's hard to pick up the color and the texture is just more like a thin layer of somewat tinted... lotion, not as moisture though. i think it sucks and it is not worth the price watsoever.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair-Medium Hair: Brown Eyes: Green
Well, I bought this because I decided to switch to Physicians Formula products, knowing it would be better for my skin! But this concealer is HORRIBLE =(
- Very hard consistency
- Very hard to blend
- Light color does not cover up green
- After about an hour or so the color (which is quite pasty) starts showing up through foundation
- Very drying

I got this duo concealer with the green/skin tone one. I like the skin tone concealer, but am disappointed with the green side. I apply the flesh toned concealer with my fingers, so it can warm up the concealer for easier application. This product was free with a powder purchase, but I don't think i'll repurchase this again since i'm only using one side of the duo.
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Combination, Fair Hair: Brown, Wavy, Medium Eyes: Hazel
I actually bought this because I got the one with the green concealer and fell in love with the skin tone color side. The yellow side is very dry and chalky, but again I still really like the skin tone color side and you should just get the duo with the green because it's way creamier!
