Yes I agree with you most, it is not creamy and it does dry out. That being said it does give the best coverage I have gotten out of any concealer. Love it.

Pros:
-Pretty good coverage
-If you know how to use the separate colors, you can get a really nice effect with them

Cons:
-Drying. Very drying.


Bottom Line:
I really wanted to like this product. I really, really did. I was so excited to get it, I had heard so many good things, and despite the fairly high price I was overjoyed after my purchase.

However, after about a week of use, my eyelids became horribly flaky. Scaly, even. Huge pieces of skin just drying up an falling off, leaving angry red marks behind. I didn't connect it to this concealer until after a week or two, when I realized that this was happening no matter where I put it: blemishes, undereye, lip.

My disappointment knows no bounds. I tried to make this work, but to no avail. It might actually end up in my trash, I have no use for it whatsoever.

I'm genuinely surprised at the number of reviews which ranked this product as mediocre! It is the only concealer I have ever used which is long-lasting. For around a year I was using MAC concealer and thought it was the best, but it would often slide as I have quite oily skin. I had heard about Secret Camouflage so many times, in magazines (it's received many rewards over the years!), from friends, etc, but I never actually considered buying it. Admittedly the price was quite a big factor in this, as it is over £20 (£25 if I remember correctly?) but I now realise that it's so worth the money. I've been using the same one for the past few months and I reckon it still has a few months left. The only annoying thing is that I dropped it and as it's in a compact the latch broke so it opens in my bag sometimes... but it's not liquid so it doesn't drip. I love that you have to mix the pink and yellow based sides together to match your skin tone exactly, I hate it when your concealer is slightly off colour but this never happens with Secret Camouflage! If you've been looking for a perfect concealer, definitely check this one out.

I have this in SC3. I bought this when I bought the LM Oil-Free Liquid Foundation. It's drying and not creamy. Now that the weather is cold...the concealer doesn't pick up well on my brush or my fingers. I have to warm it up by blow drying the concealer for a couple of seconds with the hair dryer. I will not be buying this again.

i think this product is quite decent. i have pretty bad under eye circles and am constantly looking for the perfect concealer to disguise them. this is not exactly perfect, but the best i've found so far. i have this in sc-3. it's sort of dry and not as creamy as i would like it to be. i use the lighter, yellower color to try and correct the color under my eyes and then use the darker color sparingly on top to blend everything more towards my skin tone. i liked the packaging of this product until the little clamp that holds the top of the compact down broke.

i LOVE this concealer. it covers the vein that is by the inner corner of my eye and my purple undereye! this does NOT slide into fine lines on my face. it also lasts all day. Now to the one bad aspect... my skin has turned dry with the fall/winter season. this product is trying on dry skin. so i'll probably switch back to MAC for winter if I can't get this to work for me.. but i LOVE this. it covers and doesn't move. what more could i ask for?

Es demasiado seco para mi contorno,necesito poner el corrector inmediatamente despues de la crema.
Corrije bien pero no aguanta muchas horas.
No es que sea el peor que he probado ni mucho menos pero no volvería a comprarlo.

i was looking for a creamy concealer and i found this! this product is amazing to me, it hides my dark circles and stays in place the entire day. on days i'm too lazy i wear this alone instead of with foundation and i think i look presentable still. love it!

I REALLY wanted to love this product... but so far it seems like the only concealer that does an ok job is Bare Minerals (Matte). I've been looking high and low for a fabulous concealer that doesn't slide around or pull a disappearing act. So far, no such luck!

After countless hours of scouring and testing concealers, I bought this one thinking "Well, what do I have to lose? If I don't like it I can always return it." And that is exactly what I did!

The colors were either too tan, too yellow or too pink... it's forever the Goldilocks story with me and makeup. Anyway, I returned it and was so disappointed. Oh well... still looking!

For a long time i was addicted to the bobbi brown face touch up stick - i do not like greasy, wet concealers bc i feel like the melt off of look blotchy on me. however, i was never fully satisfied w/ the BB stick. i didnt feel it gave enough coverage or evenness

i finally tried something new and i love this! first of all it really lasts all day. i think i could jump into a swimming pool and it would stay on fine. it provides excellent coverage and blends in nicely. i cover it w/ a little powder and im good to go. i am very happy i switched to this.

i think the price is fine b/c that is what i paid for my BB concealer. i have a lot of acne scar discoloration so i would know what is/isnt good coverage and this definitely is great coverage. it doesnt make you feel like you've melted by the end of the day, i work out w/ it on and it also doesnt come off!

def will re-buy - new staple product. i even returned one of my BB sticks b/c i wont be using those anymore! thank you MUA makeup board for the rec!!
