I also bought this because all the YouTube makeup gurus keep talking about it. It was hard to find. I didn't want to buy them online because I like seeing the shades in person. I finally found a local beauty store that sells them and I'm glad I did because the shades looked so different in person. So if you don't want to buy them online, go to your local hole in the wall beauty store.

I first tried using them to conceal my acne scars, it didn't work. This stuff does a horrible job at concealing even the lightest spots. But it does a good job at highlighting. It looks a bit greasy afterwards, but I always set it with setting powder afterwards. It blends well and they have a ton of shades to choose from.

But honestly, when I'm done with these concealers, I will buy a drug store brand concealer instead because the applicator on these concealers are not sanitary at all.

I kept hearing YouTube makeup gurus talk about this concealer, however being a Canadian we don't have access to products American girls and boys can readily get. But luck would have it, a store called 'funk n frost' in Vancouver, carried all shades of LA girl concealer.
This concealer is thicker than most concealers, but it's quite full coverage. It has a sticky-feeling on the face, hence I had to set it with powder. It has the good staying power, and didn't settle into my lines (although I don't have many lines). The packaging is a squeeze tube with a a brush tip on the end. I preferred to dab the brush against my face, and use my real techniques foundation brush to blend the concealer it, since it's quite thick and hard to blend with my fingers. I bought mine for $3.99 CAD each.

I'm an NC25 - NC30 in Mac and I bought two shades "natural" and "creamy beige". I have to mix both to get a perfect match for autumn. The Natural shade would match me in the winter better and creamy beige in the summer.

I was very very excited about this product because everyone and their mum had said it's a "great" product and that it is a dupe for MAC's pro-longwear concealer; who doesn't love a cheap alternative right?

[I'm an NW45/NW50 in MAC Studio Fix Fluid, so after lots of research on swatches, I purchased the shades Fawn (for under eye highlight) and Dark Cocoa (expecting to use it for a contour)]

When it finally arrived, I couldn't wait to try it out for my under eye highlight and contour.
I did. And I HATED it.
Here I am about 3/4 months down the line and my feelings are still pretty much the same.

PROS:
the price
doesn't smell too bad

CONS:
Packaging - sometimes the product inside squirts water
Brush can be seen as unsanitary
It creases
Doesn't last too long - even when set
Fawn looks ashy on my skin (even after mixing with a darker shade)
BAD for under eye highlight
Dark Cocoa ended up somewhat blending with my skin - even though it different undertones to my skin and foundation - NEED DARKER SHADES
Drys very fast when applying
Can look like it's sitting on top of your face rather than nicely blending
Used Dark Cocoa once in replacement of foundation and after about 3/4 hours, my face looked oily enough to fry an egg on it (and my skin isn't THAT oily)
coverage isn't that great

I have spoken to and noticed people with lighter skin tones find this concealer works nicely for them and would recommend/repurchase.

However, for me, this concealer is a NO NO for an under eye highlight, however if used under brows or for concealing small blemishes, it's not too bad when it's set. Otherwise you're in trouble.

Giving it 1 lipstick because it didn't work for what I purchased it for, which is an under eye highlight and contour

I wouldn't and won't be repurchasing. I wouldn't and won't recommend.

Firstly, I brought the shades porcelain and light Ivory, as I have fair skin. I have a pinker undertone, but prefer to have concealer that is pink. Unfortunately, light Ivory was the complete opposite, it was an orangey yellow shade. In other words, not suitable for fair skin.
Porcelain was no better. It was way too light for my skin, and made spots more pronounced. Also, which I am kicking myself for not researching, it did not sit well on my skin. I have quite dry cheeks and forehead, whilst having the oiliest nose ever. It clung to my dry patches, even after moisturising, and on my nose wiped right of- even after powder.
The applicator was terrible, as it would wipe of the product into the cap.
However, the good thing was that porcelain was so light I finally found a concealer/brightened for the corner of my eye and bags. I also put it under my eyebrow as a highlighter.
Overall, it sucks for spots, and redness because of the colouring, terrible for oily and extremely dry skin. The only reason I am going to re purchase the porcelain shade was because it covered my bags well.

Solid concealer. Doesn't wipe out dark circles, but in all other areas does very well. Great for highlighting the face. Definitely worth a try

I absolutely love this product. I use the shade fawn to give me a slight highlight, however I will be purchasing a lighter shade to give me a stronger highlight. The consistency is creamy and really blendable which makes it easy to work with. The only con is that it's not as long wearing as I would like. With that being said I would definitely purchase again.

I purchased this product seveal times because of the youtubers reviews. I purchased "pure beige" "creamy beige" "yello corrector" and "toast". When I apply the highlighters under my eyes, it does horrible. I have tried setting it with different products, but I keep getting the same result. It creases, dries fast, and no coverage. Also, when I set my face with my Urban Decay, all nighter spray, only under my eyes feels extra dry. Now, the countour "toast" is amazing, it does the job. So, I will go back to my Mac Concealer.

Ok, so I have no problems with this concealer except that it creases a little and doesn't cover THAT well but whatever that's fine. However, I bought one of them in the shade TOAST to use for contour. The first and second time using it, it was fine but when I went ànd reopened it the third time I noticed a liquid dripping out of the tube instead of the product. Freaked out, I went and squeezed it again and almost the whole tube squirted out the liquid!! It was disgusting! I threw away the tube however I hope the other shades I get don't turn out like this.

After looking and looking I finally found this concealer at my local beauty supply store so I picked up a handful in different shades. They are medium coverage, semi matte finish, super build-able, and natural looking. Oh, and extremely cheap!!! Which is always good for your pockets! (For reference I'm NC35/C4 in the summer and NC30/C3 in the winter) I mixed medium beige and cool tan to get my perfect shade. I decided to mix this concealer with my moisturizer and use it as my everyday foundation kind of like a bb cream and my skin looks flawless yet very natural looking. Almost like a second skin! I am not kidding when I say that it looks just as good as my MUFE HD foundation in N123/N127 and as natural as my MAC face and body foundation in C4. This concealer literally melts into your skin. I have oily acne prone skin and they did not make me break out so that's a plus. I LOVE LOVE LOVE THEM. I also use creamy beige as a highlight under my eyes and beautiful bronze to contour. I have nothing bad to say about this bad boy. I'd pay 15x the price if I had to because the quality is just amazing. 10/10 recommend.
