I bought this product for acne scarring and if I ever get a blemish. I like it for the most part, I think it's good for moderate coverage, but I thought it'd be a heavy duty concealer. You also have to shake the tube before each use or else it comes out watery and unusable.

This probably goes without saying but only use your finger or a brush to apply this. I made the silly mistake of using my beauty blender to apply this and now I'm stuck with stains. It dries very quickly and is meant to built up in layers, but I don't have the time or patience to do so unless I really need something covered.

Super pigmented and creamy! I really like this stuff to cover up a blemish.

Terrible product. Does not cover ANYTHING! Watery. Don't spend your money on this junk. I promise you that you'll only return it ASAP, like me!

Absolutely love this concealer! Now let me give you some background:

I'm a recovering acne scar-ee and so I don't have deep, dark scars, but ones that are lighter now that I've grown out of my acne phase. For this reason, the concealer works well. It's medium so it's not heavy... as in it is NOT for dark scars or discolourations. If you are buying it for that purpose you will be extremely disappointed. It will cover light-medium discolourations extremely well. It's also extremely blendable with your skin. I've had some issues in the past when using heavy concealers for darker facial marks because when they dry, they tend to look patchy (meaning that in the light, it would look like you have a dark cloud where the concealer was applied). But this product doesn't do that at all because it goes on light.

***DISCLAIMER*** Despite the name, this is NOT a tattoo concealer so don't be fooled. I wouldn't even see it covering a tattoo if you applied it over 10 times. This is light to medium ONLY so don't waste you money if you need deep scars or a tattoo covered up!

I bought this when the MUFE Full Cover concealer in Shade 6 was out of stock at my local Sephora store. I own this in the shade Medium 22, which is a close match to my skin. This concealer is full coverage and it does its job of concealing blemishes, acne scares and dark circles. However what I don't love about this concealer how it feels tacky and needs to be set with a bit more powder. Also the concealer tube needs to be "mixed" by squeezing the tube around or else the consistency turns to a thin liquid. I won't repurchase this product simply because I don't enjoy the texture.

Pros:
- Full coverage to conceal most discoloration
- Hygienic packaging as a squeeze tube
- More shades to choose from
- Classic beautiful KVD ink designs on the packaging

Cons:
- Thinner consistency than MUFE
- Takes longer to dry, leaving behind a sticky feeling
- Needs to be shaken, mixed to properly work
- Kind of pricy

It didn't cover my dark circles at all. It left my under eye area looking dry.

HG blemish concealer. For years, I never bothered with a blemish concealer. I always just covered my dark circles with specific under eye correctors and concealers. But, lately I've been doing the no makeup makeup look (powder foundation, under eye concealer and blush). However, I needed something to cover up the random zit or pimple that pops up now and then. I originally wanted to fall in love with the popular MUFE Full Cover but that was a complete bust. I ended up with this instead. This KVD concealer blows MUFE away in many areas.
1. Shades. KVD has a selection of cool, neutral and warm shades. It was very easy to find an exact match. I'm #24 in this concealer (Skin: Medium Olive). For reference, #26 was a bit too yellow for me.
2. Finish. KVD has a nice natural satin/matte finish. It won't make you look like an apple fritter like MUFE Full Cover. It doesn't dry as fast and allows time to blend.
3. Coverage. I find KVD has a higher coverage than MUFE.
4. Price. KVD is $25 (1 oz.) MUFE is $32 (0.5 oz.).

The coverage of this concealer is excellent, although if you use KVD's Lock-It Liquid Foundation you don't really need to use this. I've never used this to cover up acne, tattoos or scarring. Just on my under eyes, the corners of my mouth or to clean up my brows after I've filled them in. Believe it or not, the only issue I have with this product is the packaging. The logo designs wears off and gets onto your hands after awhile, I've purchased 2 and had this happen to me each time (which I find annoying).

This actually worked alot better than I would have imagined, the price was really high compared to other brands I have bought.

Although the price was high, the concealer works the best around my eyes, and I don't have to double apply it only takes a few dabs under the eye. Once you apply your foundation over top this it covers the dark spot completely.

This is a very good "normal" concealer and not a great tattoo concealer.

The formula is very liquidy, easy to spread and can be applied in layers without looking thick or fake. I like "tapping" it on to my sunspots and acne scars, but I've noticed that I still need 2-3 layers for those spots to be fully covered. I REALLY don't see this covering concealers on its own, but it's always a good idea to use a pink or apricot concealer underneath (to negate dark colors) before using this concealer on top. (Old theater trick - you can use an orange-y lipstick or lipliner to negate dark colors as well.)

Anyways, this concealer wasn't what I expected, but I ended up keeping it anyways. It has great staying power, a very handy squeeze-y tube packaging and ended up being useful for traveling and everyday wear. Since the formula is so light, I can even use it under my eyes if I forget to bring my usual concealer for that area.

NOTE: DEFINITELY swatch this concealer in person and in daylight to find your match. I thought I'd be "Medium 26" since Kat von D says that one has warm undertones (and I'm very yellow), but that one was more of a NC35/37 shade. I'm NC25 and ended up matching Medium 22, which has more neutral undertones.

EDIT - I ended up returning. I'm frustrated by how many layers of this concealer I needed to cover my sun spots. One swipe of MAC Studio Finish Concealer gives the same amount of concealment and is much faster. I think the only advantage this concealer has over other types is the super helpful packaging and the light, liquidy formula (if you prefer that).
