I usually use a cream concealer from a highend brand, but unfortunately i misplaced it and since the closest department store is an hour away, i had to resort to drugstore makeup. i bought this concealer because of the reviews i saw here and its a pretty good concealer. im a medium in stila cosmetics and i used medium 2-4 for this. it looks dark in the bottle but comes out WAY lighter than it looks. so i suggest go atleast 1 or 2 shades darker than what you normally wear. I use it on my dark circles and scars and it covers them with a pretty even consistency. overall i would DEF buy again - can't beat the price! it's not as amazing as my old reliable but i would recommend it overall.

This concealer is actually pretty decent...I wasn't expecting much, but I needed a new wand concealer and wanted to try something with minerals. I have sensitive, VERY acne-prone skin so I'm always scared of a product making my skin freak out. I find this stuff doesn't cause me any problems...it dries quickly, so blend fast or adding a touch of moisturizer helps. The finish is so nice, but I think the colours in this line run light....I bought one that looked like it would match (Light 2-3, Ivory I believe), but it is waaay too fair! So I got that really wrong and need to re-buy. Darn.

So basically I bought this after breaking my nose and I had a small purple slight bruise. To get the correct shade, I asked the cosmetics lady to help me find my shade. I'm naturally tanned so I believe I have medium beige.
This blended so well and so easily and it looks natural. Does not break me out. It turns into a nice matte powder finish.
Since I normally do not use a concealer and now the bruise is gone, I stopped using it until recently I decided to use it all over my eye lid as a base instead of my liquid foundation. It works very good since it's not oily! Better than foundation! My eye make up seems to hold better with this on!
I will buy it again, but for my eyes. Good product. Their mineral powder foundation is good too :)

I bought this on a whim. I am a concealer snob (Hellooo Anti-Ceirnes!!) and it wasn't bad! It goes on gobby, so use a light hand, but on " good skin" days, it's a decent alternative to pricier options. It does dry fast, though. So far, it hasn't given me milia under my eyes, which I get with other drugstore concealers, but I may have to edit this later- the jury is still out. Color selection IS tough, as well. All told, I am satisfied so far- and if the performance holds up, would buy again.

I really like this concealer it covers pimples and dark circles well and blends in to a natural looking finish. Haven't noticed it breaking me out or making blemishes worse and I've been using it for months.

This concealer is the SHIZ. It's light, but covers up blemishes and undereye circles. It doesn't clog my pores or dry out my skin. I agree with the reviewer below me; it's hard to find the right shade - but I think that's more my fault than the product's. :D

I love this product, a little goes a long way for this! The applicator is good but my problem is that every time I pull it out, a lot of the concealer is on the brush and I prefer my concealer to be light when I apply it. The bad thing about this concealer is choosing the right skin tone for you. I had to buy it 4 times before I found my right shade and this concealer around 10 dollars so it's pretty pricey for it's size =[, but it's not greasy, it's not heavy, it's not thick, and it does not clog my pores! It feels like water but it's not running either, it doesn't dry too fast and it doesn't streak for me. I love the fact that this concealer has minerals and maybe that's why it works so well, I am in love with this concealer ever since I saw a youtube video on it. I will most definitely make this a permanent make up in my make up collection!

I love this concealer because it blends in very naturally and does a good job of concealing dark circles(a pet peeve of mine) and doesn't give you that weird reverse racoon eyes effect, which is never a good look, and this is the first concealer I've ever used that hasn't done that to me. With a pat of powder to set it I'm all good to go in the morning. HG :D Color selection is great too
UPDATE: though Ivory 2-3 is an excellent match for my winter complexion, the cons outweigh the pros. After a couple months the concealer starts to go bad(?); separates and doesn't blend into the skin. It just spreads itself around a blemish and actually highlights it(target-like). Being skin toned, its not good as an undereye concealer; not only will it just turn gray but the formula is drying and not suitable for this area. For this concealer to be only good for the occasional pimple and will go bad before I'm even 1//4 of the way done, it's just not worth it.

This has not caused me to break out yet but so far it's doing a great job at concealing. It covers up my redness and dark circles. So far i'm liking it! It would be best applied with a sponge or brush.

I use this and Neutragena 3 in 1 concealer. I have very light skin and very noticeable dark circles and the combo works well for me. I use this on any red blotches I might have on my face from my sensitive skin and I use it over the other concealer under my eyes. Works great I will repurchase.

This is my second time trying on a concealer. I wanted to buy a concealer to cover up my reddess from my skin allergies and my pimples, however it did not do so. When I applied it with my concealer brush/finger it was hard to blend and it looked cakey afterwards. It dried up really fast. It also made my acne and my face more red, itchy, and dry. I wish I had not wasted 8-9 bucks on this. I am still on my quest to find a good concealer.

This concealer does a better job of covering up blemishes and under-eye discolorations than MAC Select Moisture Cover. The two products are similar in packaging and in the creamy, easy to blend consistencies. However, Maybelline is WAY cheaper, and hides redness more effectively. FYI: when choosing a concealer, pick one that is about 1 shade lighter than your foundation and skin-tone, cuz you're gona be covering up stuff that's dark. I'm a light/medium complexion (MAC NC-30-35), and I used the NC20 concealer. In Maybelline I'm medium 2.5, but for some reason the light 4-5 concealer works great on me. go figure.

Okay for dark circles, doesn't cover my acne scars or blemishes.

I don't really know what to say about this product. I bought it really quick at the drugstore to cover my under eye circles. It does it's job just O.K. I think it doesn't last long enough and sometimes it's hard to blend. I wouldn't recommend it for blemishes. More for dark circles.

OK, I guess I would have to say that this concealer is pretty good. It really does a good job of concealing most things like undereye circles and the tinest blemishes, but if i have a little red pimple that's more red than usual, I add the concealer on and it makes the pimple look kind of purple-ish. That's only in some lightings.
I like that this concealer doesn't clog my pores and I think it's oil free. The packaging is weird, it reminds me of lipgloss and they could have made the bottle or the label a little more attractive. Though these things don't really bother me, I just added that in because it's one of the ratings that I have to give.
The one thing I do and don't like about this product is that it's not quite as 'cakey' as my sunblock, but I still feel like I'm wearing makeup. Like, not in a refreshing way. I can feel that there is a layer of concealer on my face...kinda like when a kid first tries on lipstick and can feel it on their lips until they gradually adjust to it. Even so, I think I need to get a primer to match up with this so that it's effectivness can be taken to another level.

I like liquid concealers like these best. I have combination skin so cream concealer only works best on some areas but easily cakes on me or enhances dry pathces. I love most things I've tried from the Mineral Power line so I was very excited to try these. The consistency very nice, not thick but not too watery. Light-medium coverage and easy to build. I don't mind the package of it, it's similar to a lipgloss with a doe foot applicator. I basically just dab at trouble areas and then blend out with a brush or my fingers. I find it's best to work with this in layers. Becuse it's not super watery it can be a bit dry under the eyes (I recommend using a moisturizer if you're using this on dark circles) but the sheer quality of this concealer makes it a very natural coverage. As for staying power it's moderate... it'll start to wear down after 5+ hours but still provide coverage. It doesn't clog pores or make blemishes worst.. Easily available and a pretty decent price for the quality.
I use Maybelline Mineral Power liquid foundation in Light 0.. but I seem to be able to use this concealer in Light 0-1, 2-3, and 4-5. Light 2-3 is actually the lightest of the bunch, then it's 0-1 which is more beige and 4-5 is the closest match for me.

I bought this concealer in Sand 0-1 a few months ago. I have dark, brownish undereye circles and was hoping that this would do the trick. This product is OKAY, because it only provided minimal coverage (meaning I didn't look like a walking zombie). The built-in applicator brush that comes with it sucks though. I find that when you dab it on your face there's too much going on, as it's a liquid concealer. I just use my fingers instead. For durability, it deserves a 2. Throughout the day it wears off, but slowly.
So all in all, this product is average. I still notice grayish areas underneath my eyes when I'm done with it, but at least this product lasted me a long time. I've used it almost daily for about 5 months now, and I've still got about 1/2 of the bottle left.

the consistency is like a foundation. but it doesnt last. it settles in between my lines and seems to disappear after 2 hrs. although i used eye cream underneath it i still have some accumulation of small dry patches.

This is an overally good product. It covers well, blends easily, and doesn't feel heavy at all. The trick is to not put on too much. I do like the look of the packaging. It does tend to get cakey if you don't blend well, or if you put on too much. Its a good price for a drugstore brand cosmetics, but I suggest buying this at a buy one get one free offer. I would definately buy this again. =)

I like this product - especially that it's mineral makeup, which is supposed to be good for my skin.
The creme is easy to blend and apply to my face and it does a fairly good job in concealing.
