I really, really hate this concealer. I picked it up from the drug store as my own Clinique concealer had run out. It's too thick, it looks really cakey, doesn't cover my dark circles or any blemishes and I just think it's horrible. Never buying this product again.

as a concealer this is not the greatest ..however i recently tried this as an eyeshadow base/primer and wow!!! This held my eyeshadow on better than any primer i have used before, it made my eyeshadow color more vibrant and lasted all day! This is way better than my mac paint pot . If you wear glittery eye shadows like urban decay's Try this as your base, you will be amazed!!

Can I give some advice to the ladies who find it cakey for the undereye area. I always apply stick concealers with a damp sea sponge. It is much better for the delicate under eye area anyway and the make up goes on smooth. I draw the concealer on and even put some on the lid area as a base for my eye make up. You then wet your sea sponge and wring it so that it is just slightly damp. Blend the concealer until you have the look that you need.

I found this concealer to be very average. It is better at concealing eye bags or dark circles rather than blemishes but if you use even a little too much I find that this tends to cake really easily. Also because the skin under my eyes can be a little uneven, this would make my foundation patchy which is definitely not a good look. The consistency is nice and creamy and glides on okay and the stick formula makes it easy to apply. I am happy that it didn't cause a skin reaction as I have quite sensitive skin, but overall this didn't work for me.

I needed a replacement for my old clean and clear stick as they now seem to only make a liquid clicky-pen version which doesn't work for me at all. This did the trick. It has the convenience and consistency of what I used to use and covers very well (especially if you put it on top of your foundation, I use it on top of a powder mineral foundation). It also seems to have something of an acne healing effect on my particular skin even though it isn't actually a medicated concealer. I'll put it on new breakouts even when I'm not going out because it helps dry them up nicely. ^_^
If I were to make any criticism at all it would be that it could probably come in a few more colours to suit a wider variety of skin tones. I'm extremely fair and the Ivory shade matches me just fine, but the darker shades aren't dark enough for some of my friends.
Overall I'm very pleased with it. I'll probably stock up just in case they stop making it.

Great color range and really does the job. Great for undereye area as well and never cakey.

EW EW EW!! HORRIBLE!!! It looked sooo cakey and didn't belnd well what so ever although it glided on the skin very nicely and smoothly which I liked but this actually broke me out like no other!! The next day I had 2 big pimples and a bunch of little ones!! This concealer ruined my life at the time being! Although I love the packaging and It was $2 at my local shoppers drug mart which is dirt cheap too bad it sucked! The packaging was nice and convienent... Great price, nice packaging now if the product itself wasn't so bad that would be nice. Aside from the aftermath of the concealer the coverage was absolutely nothing but cakey and it looked like I just slapped a bunch of gunk on my face or completely forgot to blend because of the cake-e-ness of it!! It DID however give me sheer coverage in the under eye dark circle department though... but guess what? I got a tiny pimple right under my eye :(!! For acne scares it didn't give me coverage either only cake-e-ness once again! This product was a serious dissapointment because I love Rimmel London products: one of my favorite mascaras, foundations, and eye liners are from Rimmel! But as for this concealer I seriously hate it with a passion!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is NASTY. This concealer claims to be a creamy one that effectively conceal spots, blemishes and under-eye circles. I do not have many blemishes, but when I used this on them it caked and made it look like I had dry crusty spots on my face. ICK. I didn't use a lot of product either. I don't find the texture creamy; infact, I find it dry. For undereye circles, it makes them look even worse. Worst of all it BREAKS ME OUT, the ingredients list is dreadful. I would not repurchase this.

This sucks. Simply put.
Doesn't cover blemishes, doesn't cover redness, doesn't cover dark circles!
It's cakey and looks powdery, and it doesn't do anything for my awful dark circles.
I wouldn't reccomed this at all.
Not at all.

There are plenty of ingredients here that could aggravate breakouts. So I wouldn't suggest this for active acne unless you're using it on a special occasion, one-day cover kind of situation. *BUT* for my now 40-ish, combination skin, this was a really good, inexpensive DS find. If you sort reviews by age, you'll see the other mature ladies agree with me. When I ran out of StudioStick + needed something to hold me over until I could get to MAC, I searched the DS shelves. This concealer comes in 4 shades. Cost is under $4. I prefer the texture vs. MaxFactor. While it is emollient, it has a psuedo-matte finish. I'm NW20 and I use 105 (the darkest shade) under my eyes ala Eve Pearl's salmon concealer method (see video for technique here, http://youtu.be/iE5rqy2DfUA). Then I use shade 103 everywhere else. I pat with a taklon brush b/c fingers seem to take off too much product. Damp sponge under eyes to get that just-right finish. IMO, applied with the RIGHT TOOLS, and for a combination or dry skin type, this is a very good cream concealer. Will repurchase.

I use Ivory 001 for covering up pimples and red blemishes. It does a fine job in this departament.
I tried it for my under-eye circles and I didn't like it at all, it made even more visible the few fine lines that I have under the eyes. And after 2-3 hours it's not there anymore, so you need to reapply.

Everyone seems to be commenting on how well this product blends and glides on, so unless I got a dodge product I have to disagree. It is very dry, which makes it hard to blend and just too apply at all. Even when it does apply, it has the ability to cake over large blemishes and crack which looks awful. It doesn't work with my concealer brush, better off with just using my hands for this one. As for under eye circles, I would say it does a 75% job and although the concealer is very well colour matched to my skin it doesn't really match my foundation... and after applying you can still see a bit of the dark circles.
I always preferred liquid/moose concealers but my friend had commented on how great this one was so I gave it a try. I am not too disheartened as it was discounted (off the already very cheap price) so it didn't cost too much and I will use it as a back up.

Horrible product, it's cheap that's a plus but if you have oily skin....it should read "Produce the Blemish" on the brand. This product is great at sliding on perfectly, but that's the thing, it "slides." If you have oily, acne proned skin, and you are looking for a blemish to be covered for the day, this will not work for you. It would be a great product for extremely dry skin, and that's it! I bought one tube, and ended up using it on my eyelids for a base, and it didn't work well there either. Too greasy, colors are too off for anyone with olive skin tones, and it is so shiny in the tube that it reminds me of the lipstick that is in the play makeup kits that young children use to pretend they are wearing makeup.

This is one of the best concealers I've used. It is very creamy and it takes some effort to blend. I use it to cover under eye circles and the occasional spot. The ivory works very well with my skin tone. It is a little heavy and I always set it with powder but I suspect if you didn't set it with powder it might slide off.

I bought this product because I realized that I needed a good concealer. The colour I have (ivory in winter. I only bought it in about march and I havent had a chance to tan much yet so Im not sure what my summer shade is) matches my skin pretty well, but I wouldnt say they have the best selection.
As for coverage, I mostly use this to cover around my nose and the veins on my eyes, even though the product is for blemishes. I use this on fading pimples, as I dont want to attract more dirt to it as soon as I see a big red one. But for something really red I would definitely recommend using a green concealer underneath.
The packaging is good, I like that it doesnt come in a pot because I hate sticking my fingers in those, or a liquid with a wand because those never cover.
Overall, for covering pimples I wouldnt say it does too good of a job, but I dont use it for that purpose anyway so I guess I didnt lose too much.

I bought this product on sale a couple of days ago, and I needed a new concealer for the summer. I got what I believe to be the 'golden beige' colour, and I think that it matches my skin tone pretty well.
For those of you who are cheapos like me, this product is worth the money you spend on it. That means that it isn't very good, and you can definitely find better quality buys for your buck. However, i didn't find this product horrible either. I found it very hard to blend, and i had to reapply it multiple times to completely hide the blemish. I don't hate it though, and I have yet to break out from it. This is also because i only apply small amounts to certain spots of my face, and I don't use foundation in the summer. I like it because it's pretty easy to apply, and I'm personally a fan of the lipstick-style concealers. I think they're a lot easier to handle than the liquid concealers.
Is this a product that I would recommend? No, not really. If you want an easy, cheap concealer that you're not going to fully depend on it, then sure, go for it. But if you're a serious concealer user that really cares about what the quality is of the thing that's going on your face, your best bet is to look somewhere else.
There aren't very many super-great cheap concealers out there, but my bet is that there are better ones than this one. This is a good start, though..

I fouind this to be a heavy concealer that was too oily, it settled into the fine lines around my eyes. will not buy again.
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Black, Straight Eyes: Brown
The formula is really stiff and hard to blend. I can't even put it on pimples when I have them cause this thing is so hard it'll pop the pimple *shudder*.
Also, it dries to an oily finish which doesn't work with my already oily skin.
Then only good thing about this is it's alright for undereye circles.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Medium, Warm Hair: Black, Straight, Coarse Eyes: Brown
I used this concealer for my blemishes and acne scars - not for undereye issues, so I can't rate for that.
The consistensy is creamy, and dries to a powdery, oily finish. It has little to medium coverage - unable to completely cover redness or darker acne scars. This isn't /that/ bad, since I can always layer a powder or cake on a little bit more to cover (I don't mind cakiness since my natural oils work to make everything fine in just a few hours).
HOWEVER, the thing I HATED was how I started to get cystic acne. It didn't work immediately, and I didn't even realize how bad it was until I realized how MUCH it HURT. I had been using it on pimples on the side of forehead and on my left cheek - just TWO, and these places became HUGE breakouts, and I STILL have scarring. This was back in mid/late winter of '09 too.
OK. When I stopped using this, suspecting this the culprit, I had to immediately let my skin take a break, go back to OCM and pamper my skin with all natural goodies, etc. Finally, after 2/3 months, I'm back to normalness. I STILL have to use concealer for these spots, and I'm using max factor pan-stick for this - an AMAZINGLY pigmented cream foundation/concealer. I use it as a concealer for the spots and a bit for foundation over large pores and whatnot.
It's WAY WAY better than this rimmel concealer, but it's dc'ed in the US. >:( WHY?!?!?!
CONCLUSION: If you have acne-prone skin, DO NOT buy this. THis is the absolute first time that my super - tough Asian, unreactive skin broke out this badly to a makeup product.
