This concealer is my go-to concealr every day. It perfectly fits my skin tone, and the packaging is very durable and clean-cut. The price was a bit high where I live- about $9 a stick, but it has lasted me about 4 or 5 months now. My only real complaint is that, even with lotion, the concealer still seems to tear at my fragile undereye skin. But who knows, maybe that could be my own fault for not applying it right???

I have the trio but i have only tried the correct color and I really like it, it works well and i like the consistency.

Works well in conjunction with a yellow-tinged base concealer under my eyes. Also works on blemishes, and miraculously well as a eyeshadow-primer (I only use it by itself to even out the area) and as a mask for my veiny under-brow area. I love that it matches my skin perfectly (I'm very, VERY pale, but with a golden undertone.) I pat it, and it lasts all day without creases. The click-pen packaging is smart and hygenic. Good price, too. <3

I was excited to see this cream concealer stick that was specially formulated for those with sensitive skin. I have rosacea and consistent acne breakouts, so it's extremely difficult to find a product that won't upset my skin. This started out lovely. It covers well and looks very soft and natural on my skin. Unfortunately, it broke me out everywhere I put it. I don't think my skin can handle creamy formulas like this. For this reason, I won't repurchase.
UPDATE: 9/11/09 I didn't want to waste this, so I've been using it as an undereye concealer/eyeshadow primer. It is AWESOME for this purpose. It doesn't crease at all, covers beautifully and makes my eyeshadow last all day. I've tried many low and high end primers and this is actually the best! Moved it up to a 4~

I bought this as something easy to put in my purse for touch ups. I am a Bare Escentuals user, but the thing that bugs me is that it's not very travel-friendly -- you have to whip out a mirror, brush, balance the jar, etc...love the BE product, but hard to use outside of my bathroom.
I bought the "buff beige" color, (I'm a "light" 2.0 in BE), and this is a very close match. In the winter I would probably buy the "creamy natural" instead, but since I have a little color in my skin in the summer, I thought this would match better.
I have an acne scar by my right ear that I usually have to cover up again later in the day (talking on the phone tends to make the makeup wear off on that part of my face). It is so easy to cover with the built-in brush, and the coverage is very good. I also used it today to cover some redness around my nose.
I highly recommend it if you use mineral makeup and need something easy to throw in your bag for easy touch-ups during the day.

I'm reviewing the Stick Concealer(Solid) in Light. My HG acne/scar/discoloration concealer for the summer! I use this and my mineral foundation (right now its SunCat Minerals SunShine FFC). I buff a little of the foundation to prime, then conceal with this, then add more layers of the foundation where I need it and my face is usually FLAWLESS. Now I didn't give it a 5 because sometimes when I have my big new cystic pimples, it doesn't cover as well, but its really better than nothing and I have found no other concealer that can not clog my pores (actually am clearer) and cover so well. I use it in the summer because I usually wear liquid foundation then layer my mineral foundation over that, but that is too much for the sweltering heat in Texas. Need as little stuff on my face as possible! It is also less oily and greasy (breathable!) than most full coverage concealers, but is not perfect because I still shine, and need blotting papers and powder. I need that without makeup though! I am extremely oily in the summer! All in all it's the best I've found, and CHEAP!! but hard to find. I get it at CVS. I do not use this under the eyes though, you need a liquid and/or mineral concealer for that because stick form will go into your creases. I break out and get allergic reactions to almost everything and this has not caused one bit of a problem for me so it probably won't with you. I recommend this 100%!!!! EDIT---I bought this again after not using it since last summer, and I think they may have reformulated it or something, because it seems to be clogging my pores :(( wump, wump, wump

I love this. It's a great color for my skin. Creamy and nice. Easy to apply and smooth/dab over blemished areas and under-eye circles. Buy this. It is a very good thing. I APPROVE.

I used to use this with Maybelline powder over top, and my skin looked gorgeous and natural. The concealer is about $5.98 at Walmart, and you get a good bit of it. It covered all my post acne marks very well and lasted all through the day.

LOOOve this! I have it in fair, but it is like a porcelain color. Thankfully they came out with light which matches my skin perfectly! I have sensitive acne-prone skin & physicians formula is one of the few makeup brands i trust to put on my face.
Coverage is medium but buildable. It tends to fade after a few hours if i don't set it with powder. I set it with P.F. mineral wear loose powder & it stays the day! i Highly recommend this! The only downside is the variety of colors if you have darker skin you may have a problem.

I posted a review on the green one just now, so I will only point out what I do like about this particular shade:
This stays on my face all day. No dark under eye circles by lunchtime for me. It blends great (after getting it out of the 'pen' - read green review for rant on that), doesn't look painfully obvious or irritate my skin. I've been cheap-ing out for the past couple of years and using the NYC concealer sticks (which don't work worth a crap), so this is a nice change.
Won't buy it again just because of the 'pen' concept. I use a concealer brush to put this stuff on, not the crappy one that's built into it (reminiscent of the brush in a white-out bottle) . Again, see green review for full laundry list....

I like this concealer, plain and simple. BUY IT :]

I've tried MANYconcealers over the yrs - sticks, tubes, pans, liquids. This product is VERY light, not oily - and provides builable coverage. This was imporant to me - I'm trying to avoid things that might aggravate my middle-aged acne these days. (including my Lauren Hutton concealers - which prob contain a fair amt of oil :-S.) This concealer, along with Physician's Formula pressed mineral powder are my current favs. They do not aggravate my sensitive, acne-prone skin. Also - great for touch-ups b/c of the built-in brush. Only Cons I can think of is: a fairly small amt of product in the container. And not dirt-cheap for drug-store make-up. But these are small Cons - and I will definitely re-purchase. :-)

Another great product from Physician's Formula!
Offers great coverage without it seeming cakey. Doesn't make me breakout! Yeah! But also this packaging impressed me. The part where you twist up the concealer is metal, rather than plastic, so it isn't cheap! Looks great for a drug store cosmetic! I will for sure buy this again!

It took me awhile to warm up to this product but by now I don't even remember why. It has a nice texture that blends well and covers imperfections pretty well. It isn't perfect but I haven't found a concealer that is so I guess it depends on your expectations. I like the stick form and the fact that it's really nice to my sensitive skin. I use it on sun spots, acne and under the eyes sometimes (but not recommending for undereye circles). I hate how most concealers have exfoliating acids in them to treat acne which make the makeup peel off. This concealer doesn't and so it has good staying power. I'm surprised it doesn't have a higher rating.

This is my new favorite concealer. I have used L'Oreal Total Balance for years, but it seems to have disappeared from all the stores in my area. This Physician's Formula has not disappointed! I like the applicator and the concealer itself is easy to blend and it covers tiny imperfections very well. It is easier to use than the stick and I find that I am using less product. I will definitely repurchase.

Really great concealer! Easy to use and not messy. It's easy to apply with the brush and feels nice and light.

This product works for me. The tip is to apply on freshly moisturized skin to prevent the product from being too dry. I pat it on with the brush then emulsify the concealer with my finger. It's a lighter coverage so for my dark circles I tend to go back over it blending my Pur Minerals foundation under my eye with a concealer brush. Works great for me and working in the beauty industry I always get so many compliments from my customers on how I don't have dark circles and how perfect my skin is....if they only knew haha

ugh- i needed something to cover the shadows under my eyes, i had concealer overload in the drug store- this stuff caught my eye, as it was extra sensitive for breakout prone skin, natural looking coverage and SPF 10- plus i liked the clicky pen with the brush on the end. it came in two shades, the darker was 'light' but it is WAY too light for me, not even close to matching my medium toned skin, so i'm returning it. even if the shade was close, this product dries so fast that it is hard to blend in, and you want to be careful under your eyes, and you truly have to rub hard to get it to blend. oh well, back to CVS for something else...

I can't decide whether or not I like this product..hmm. Well, I got it in the package with pf loose powder and decided to give it a go. I don't mind the clickpen sort of deal, so that didn't bother me. It conceals under the eyes really well for me, the colors a good match for my fair skin. I use a little sponge to blend it all in around there. But, when trying to conceal a blemish or anything, it doesn't want to. I've tried both blending/patting with both a sponge and my finger and the concealer seems to move all AROUND the spot I'm trying to cover. It takes about 3-4 times of applying and blending to actually cover it a little bit. Also, its not a good formula for any area of dry skin, eeeck! Otherwise, when it DOES work..doesn't make pores look larger, doesn't interfere with other makeup, looks natural, good staying power..I'm so torn!

I was looking for a concealer that could replace Maybelline Everfresh (which I loved) since it was discontinued. This barely hid blemishes and scars, it is too thin/watery, blends weird, and only enhanced some dry flakes on my nose. The worst thing is it clogged my pores and gave me breakouts even though it says on the package it's for acne-prone skin and I dislike the click pen w/brush. This reminds me somewhat of L'oreal True Match concealer which is a better one, but doesn't cover enough. I will continue my search for a lightweight concealer that has great coverage.
