The light side of this concealer is too light for my skin, so I use it as an undereye concealer but it does not do a good job since it's very watery. The green side, I use it on the red acne scars on my face. I just apply a thin layer with a separate concealer brush and then put on my foundation. Since I use a full coverage foundation, it hides the green tint pretty well and I can say that the green concealer makes a difference when hiding blemishes. But you need to cover up the weird green tint somehow, if you're using a light foundation it would probably show up under it.

This is a pretty decent dream concealer. It has a green correcting end and a light colored concealer. The light is too light for me and the green is really green. At first I thought I wouldn't be able to make it work but with a little experimenting I got good results.
First off I blend a dab of the green with a liquid foundation so that it helps the foundation better cover my redness. This looks much more natural. Then I use a sponge and blend it out by patting it. I use the light as I would a Dior Skinflash and only put it under my eyes and around dark spots to brighten.
I then finish off with powder foundation (stippling it on with MAC 187 brush). I works very well for me and looks very natural.

This is the only green drugstore concealer I know of (NYX has one but I can't find it in a store). I got this for cheap because I caught both a sale and a massive coupon. Not sure I'd pay full retail price.
The green side is just okay. It's very bright, and I'm not sure how well it really neutralizes redness. If you could get it to spot-apply it would be better, but the consistency is so thin (it IS liquid) that it just spreads all over.
The natural side is really nice for light coverage. It doesn't do much for moderate and up acne, but for undereyes and redness around the nose, very good. This is the concealer I use when I don't really want to wear any makeup, but I need to. It doesn't cake on me at all.

While I've come to accept the fact that there's no such thing as the perfect concealer, this concealer isn't bad. It can be difficult to work with, because you really have to make sure to blend and cover the green or it will show through in certain light. Also, I wish they gave you more of the natural shade. I end up using more of that to cover the green, and it seems like they don't fill that side of the tube completely, because I swear, it only lasts a few weeks! I ran out of the natural side of 2 tubes long before I used up all of the green in the first tube. That's my biggest complaint. The concealer itself isnt bad. It does it's job, and I like the creamy consistency.

The natural color is the same concealer as the Physicians Formula Cream concealer, so I already have reviewed that. The green concealer is what I will review right now. I actually really like it, it is the same consistency as the cream concealor, and it really does cover up the red blemishes. What I was using before this was the anti-redness primer from loreal. With that I applied it all over my face however it had some shimmer in it which I did not like because I am trying to control look less shiny, but with this concealer I do more of a spot to spot kind of thing and then blend it out and it is complettely matte.

This product was hard to apply and blend. It is a very creamy, thick and somewhat sticky consistency. Plus, you still had to put concealer on top to help darken the highlight cast that this product leaves. I think that for a couple of dollars more, you could get a good concealer that helps with those under eye circles.

This works okay for the red areas of my face (chin, under my nose) but it's not great. I never use the green side because it doesn't do anything except male me look like Kermit the Frog no matter how lightly I apply it. I'm still on the hunt for my grail concealer.

I wasn't sure how to rate this, because the natural side is the best concealer I have found, but the green side is ridiculously green. This was the first concealer I bought, and I soon discovered that the green was so green that it couldn't even be covered by the natural like the product claimed - it just left me looking a bit zombie-ish. I stopped using the green and found that the natural side alone worked really well to cover anything - be it pimple, scar, scabs even! It blends well, matches my skin, and covers without looking cakey. When I ran out, I wanted to get more without buying the green side, which is useless, but I found that the regular Physician's Formula concealer is not nearly as good - it's dry, doesn't blend, and doesn't match my skin. I wish I could just buy the natural side of this product!

I will definitely NOT be repurchasing this product. It took a lot of green to cover the redness around and under my nose, and when I put the natural colored concealer over the green (after waiting a good 5 mins for it to dry) it wet the green concealer again and blended with it. So although I wasn't alien green anymore, I looked really sickly. It was disgusting. With both of the concealers, it ended up looking thick and cakey and didn't even do the job it was meant to do! Not to mentionI needed to put foundation over both concealers to cover up the sickly green tone to my face.. which made my makeup look even thicker. Looks like I'm still on that hunt for a good green concealer to neutralize my redness.

Whoa, this is surprisingly good concealer. It's dual-ended, which is very convenient. The green side counteracts redness and I often use it alone for spots. The natural side is also very good, even for under the eyes. I use it sparingly and it never looks dry or caky.
It has a great texture-- blendable, but dries fairly quickly to what I would describe as a powder finish. It also seems to have incredible lasting power.
I have dry, acne-prone, sensitive skin, and this product is a-ok.
I can't forsee any reason that I would discontinue use of this product.

I would buy this again.
I have a combination skin.. so when my face gets oily, the concealer comes off a little, but not much :)
As long as you don't rub your oily face, you'll be fine.
Just dab your face lightly with oily blotting film/wet napkin.
I prefer buying only the natural side though, since I don't use green as much as the natural side. Too bad they don't sell it separately.. D; I also wish it was cheaper >_<

The green, red reducing side of the tube didn't really seem to take any of the redness down, but I liked the natural concealer on the other side. It had blended very well with my skin and covered pretty well. If I were them, though, I would just take off the green side and simply sell the regular concealer side, because the green is kinda pointless.

The green concealer did not work. I bought it to cover up redness but the green never blended away, it stayed a very strong and unnactrive green color :/ The other side of concealer was alright..the concistency was nice and smooth but it didn't cover very much. I wouldn't recommend this.

This product didn't work for me at all. I have very fair skin and this did nothing to cover my blemishes. The green side was just mediocre and didn't hide the redness as well as I would have liked. The flesh colored side was completely useless. It was watery and didn't even cover the green that I had just applied. When I tried to use it by itself, it did nothing and you could see every flaw that I tried to conceal. I'm glad I got this for practically free with a coupon because I would have been really disappointed otherwise.

Well the twin concealor is not worth it! The green is very misleading great for halloween-it does not cover well and stays green-the beige side is thin and drying. next!!!
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Acne-prone, Fair Hair: Brunette Eyes: Green
The natural concealing side of this dual-ended concealer isn't too bad. Just an average concealer. It isn't too thick, a little on the thin side, and covers up average blemishes, but probably wouldn't work well for more severe breakouts.
The green, on the hand, is not so useful. I was excited about this because I do get a lot of redness. The green is too...green. It is very hard to conceal the green once you apply it. The natural concealer didn't cover it, nor did any other concealer or foundation I had. It just led to a really cakey, washed out look. Not so pretty...

I just purchased this to conceal my super red cheeks. I used the green in smallest amount I could and blended until it could blend no more..my face was a weird shade of minty green, but parts were still bright red! I tried to put my foundation over it, but it showed through so bad. It was a mess.
Then I tried the other side of my face using even less green, but I still had a green and red face :(
It is wayyy too pigmented and dried out my skin like crazy.
I pray target will let me get my $6.49 back

This was my first concealer and it was quite disappointing.
Formula was cakey and too thick when applied. It made my undereyes and blemishes stand out even more.

I just finished my tube of this and I'm glad it's gone.
I didn't realize how bad this was until I bought a cheapo Cover girl liquid concealer. GC works as a stay-put all over brighter - Physicians formula was too dark for my under-eyes and just slid off over the day. Worse, it seemed to like to run into my mascara(?) and I would go all racoon-y.
The green end works in theory but in practice it just dulls the blemish to a mole-like brown surrounded by a ring of patchy green pigment. The two ends don't mix well either. I like the idea of skin-safe ingredients, but I'll compromise for products that actually work.

This stuff is definitely HG for me! I have used this product for 1 year now, and it has not caused me ANY breakouts as a result (I have super sensitive skin and I'm prone to breakouts). It goes on silky smooth and covers extremely well. The only con is that the light colour only comes in a duo pack with either the green or the yellow which is a waste for me because I don't use either. I've tried to use the green to conceal redness and then put the skin colour concealer over it, but it looked really bad.
Wish they would make this product on its own with no duo...
