Been using this for years, I used to wear it alone under the eyes, chin, around the nose and between the eyebrows all blended out and it was seamless. One tube lasts FOREVER, when it gets down to the last bit I've been using a concealer brush to dig in there or straight up transfering it over to a little pot container. A little goes a long way. I still have half the contents of the tube I bought well over a year ago that I transfered to a little empty glitter pot. I've been looking for a new concealer that is cruelty free for months now however so I will not be repurchasing this once it runs out. If you don't buff this out well with a sponge and then apply powder over the top it will probably look disgustingly chalky/dry/cakey, it has to be buffed out really reeeeally well. I can't really recommend this product however because I think it sinks into fine lines quite dramatically, but with enough powder it's passable.

It's not a very cosmetically elegant concealer but OK for the price. It has a thick consistency and good coverage initially but after a few hours it dries out cakey on blemishes and creases under eyes. I'd recommend for someone young and starting out on make up as it's pretty easy to handle in the stick and although it doesn't blend out seamlessly it's pretty forgiving, but not ideal for anyone with fine lines it likes to settle into.

I've been using this concealer for several months & I dnt rlly like it. @ first I bought it to use under my eyes, but it creased sm & the product looked very, very cakey & ppl noticed. it was also hard to apply straight from the packaging bc it would tug @ my skin, it wouldn't glide. blending it in was also annoying bc it's not very blendable! I've tried using this as a highlighting concealer & on patches of skin too but it just looks so cakey & clings to dry patches, & u can tell I'm wearing concealer! i feel like it gave me premature fine lines. however, it's good for covering up acne & tiny spots. tht's the only reason I'm repurchasing. the stick doesn't have a fine tip so I use a concealer brush to apply it w precision. I'd say the coverage is full. the formula is also waterproof, which I love, but i found it drying. the packaging is good I guess, it's simple & easy to use. the price wasn't bad, $7 is cheap for a concealer & the amount of product there will last u a long time but this just wasn't as good as I thought it'd b & wasn't what I was looking for. there's plenty of other better concealers out there, if you're looking for a concealer I'd skip this one.

This covers redness pretty well, but on my skin it becomes very greasy and almost slides right off in a matter of minutes. Not for oily skin for sure.

I have a faded pink birthmark on my arm, and so I was on the hunt for a green concealer to counteract the redness and that's when I came across this! I rub a bit onto my birthmark, cover with foundation and then powder to set and my birthmark is invisible. The only flaw I find with this is that it transfers a little bit on my clothes so I only wear it on special occasions and not every day.

I love this concealer for everything except under my eyes. Its thick, heavy coverage and stays put! I use it on an occasional blemish but its my go to concealer for highlighting under my brows and makes blending my shadow a breeze! Its cheap and lasts me forever! Will never use under my eyes though, its too heavy and creases.

Did not like this product at all. It creases under my eyes so easily. and when i use it on blemishes it is so hard to blend and ends up cracking anyway. oh and it smells really gross too.

ew do not buy

This has been my go-to concealer for at least ten years, to cover occasional blemishes. I have tried many other ones (low and high end) but this is the best for this purpose. Nothing hides blemishes better than this, with a bit of blending and setting powder over it. It is very very thick and just kinda glues to the skin so it's great for those little spots that need to be covered.

For concealing dark circles, this is not the best though. It's noticeable and hard to blend on larger surfaces since it is so thick. I use a different concealer for those purposes.

I will cry if they stop making this stuff!

I just bought this concealer tonight. I was so excited, I had to try it in the car.
First, let me say that I am very pale with dark circles. I have bought a few concealers from Sally's just to be disappointed. Last year I also tried some double-step roll on concealer, didn't cover.
The only concealer I had actually enjoyed until today was the one from Estée Lauder that comes in a tube. (It's just sooo pricey!)
For the price, I think this is a fabulous product!
I blend this in with my finger on top of my Estée Lauder double wear foundation so I am not really worried about it not "staying."
I like that it actually helps hide my circles instead of highlighting them like some of the other ones I have tried. (So frustrating!)
Yes, I can tell that it does settle into your lines a bit, most under eye concealers do.
If that is a problem for you, I would invest in a higher end concealer made specifically for dark circles, OR use a good eye cream with this.
I am very likely to purchase this again. Good price and easy to use.
