Was really looking forward to using this product when I ordered it, but I was really disappointed with it. I got a dark shade to use as a contour and a light shade as a highlight but the dark shade when I put it on makes me look like I have some sort of skin disease like leprosy when I blend it out its goes all patchy and makes weird dots on my skin?

I used a damp beauty blender to blend it out, which I would normally use for any other concealer/highlighter that I use so i know that it's not the beauty blender. Idk i just really thought this would be a HG product for me but it gives me these weird dots and patches around the skin, but its not a breakout like its the application if that makes sense and it makes me look like I missed loads of places when i was applying it but its just the way it goes on my skin.

While these concealers are so cheap compared to others I definitely would not repurchase, even the light shade doesn't cover my under eyes enough even with a dark circle corrector underneath.

This is my favorite concealer from the drugstore. It's amazing for covering blemishes as well as any scarring I have left past breakouts. I use my fingers to blend out the product and it honestly blends like a dream. I have dry spots around my cheeks which is where i usually apply the concealer, but it doesn't accentuate any flakiness that may be there at all.

I'm a NC20 in MAC concealers and I use this concealer in the shade Light which i believe is the third lightest shade in range. Unfortunately there aren't any options for people with darker skin tones.

I love that such an affordable product works so well. The only downside is that I feel like the products runs out very quickly. I've been using this concealer for quite some time now and I would definitely repurchase.

The only thing I like about this is the packaging. Its very drying and chalky looking, nothing like I expected by reading the reviews.

I love this concealer (I use the shade glow CW06) I use it exclusively for blemishes and redness under the nose. I have very oily skin and this stays on a long time, it dries fast, it has a matte finish that's perfect for my oily skin it has good coverage, overall I love it. I don't use for under the eyes because I prefer a more brightening concealer not matte for under the eyes. I bought this after seeing a NathalieK review on drugstore concealers for blemishes, here is the review if you want to have more options:

Had to try this concealer, after all the raves on MU board. I bought both the NARS RCC(Biscuit) and NYX(Tan) to do a side by side comparison review.
I am a NW35 for concealer in the MAC. I have the best under eye bags/darkness, thanks hereditary :)
Consistency - Both did not crease on me.
- NARS a little less thinner in consistency, more creamier.
- NYX is touch thicker and still creamy.
Coverage - NARS gives the best coverage in 1 swipe..do not have to layer on the product.
- NYX gives about 80% coverage and felt the need to apply more product to conceal the darkness.
Price - NARS - 31.00$ including taxes :((
- NYX - 4.99$ :))

Both are good depending on how much you want to conceal..Definetly try NYX first for the price to see if it works for you.

I'll start this off by saying I usually end up getting the fairest shade of things because others tend to be too dark, and I got this in the second-lightest shade (CW02 fair) and holy moly is it light! You are insanely pale, try this! Its almost off-white colored. I prefer my face products to remain a little bit dewy, just because it's what feels more comfortable for me, and this does set pretty quickly, do a powdery finish. I have to mix it with another concealer (an elf one that's a shade too dark) or it emphasizes the clogged pores I get around my eyes (I don't try to unclog them because it's quite painful there). Its not a great concealer if you have texture, such as a healing blemish, because it highlights dryness. I'll keep using this and try it during the summer when I'm more oily, but I won't be buying it again. Its not terrible, but it's not what I prefer in my concealer. I will say that after you let it sit for a minute or 2, it looks a lot better than when you first apply it.

I liked this for a couple months but recently, I have noticed that the texture changed and it is thick and gloppy. It pools while you are trying to blend it and creases like crazy now. I really liked it before, but considering that the texture changed within 6 months of purchase, I wouldn't repurchase. I used it solely for my undereye area.

I've gone through about ten of these already. These are AMAZING. I love the formula and creaminess of the these concealers. The only problem that I had in the beginning was that it didn't cover my dark circles completely, so I bought the yellow one and I apply it before I put foundation on and it worked! I'm so happy with this product. I have one in green and lavender as well. If you want to conceal dark circles, THIS IS IT!

I bought this concealer after seeing all the great reviews it had. It did cover well at first but then was in my creases. Also, and I don't know if it's just me because I haven't seen anyone saying it, but to me it has an odd smell to it.
