This concealer is really one of my favourites. The consistency of the product is amazing and it is very hydrating. it blends really well and does'nt crack like creamy concealers. it is perfect for undereye area and it does a great job in covering dark circles. The disadvantage of this product is that you really cannot keep this for a long period of time. I have used mine for about 2 and a half weeks before it finished. I am not sure whether I received a bad batch or if you really just run out that quickly. So it is quit pricey for the amount of product you get. but for those that can afford to splurge should most definitely try this concealer. GREAT RESULTS!!!

Having heard the raving reviews about this TM i just had to get it. But I must say i was rather dissappointed at the choices of colour. it only comes in about 10 shades and i feel as though i didnt have a true match to any of the shades but the closest one must have been tan. I enjoyed this product the first time i put it on, although I didnt notice it to be any different to a sheercoverage foundation. eventhough it wasnt my true match I could still wear it. however for the price i wasnt too impressed. It didnt feel like a luxury product and people were not noticing that I was wearing a laura mercier tinted moisturizer. and as time went on, the TM started to look more grey ish and i started hating it. i like to accentuate the yellowness in my skin and this "tinted moisturizer aka light coverage foundation" did not do anything for me, it hid my colour instead and made me look ashy. This TM feels like a lighter version of the HD make up forever, but i would most definitely choose the HD MUF as it has a better finish and better options in terms of their colour range. This product might possible work for those of lighter skin tone. however for those in the range of nc45, I would not advice you to get this product.
I REALLY wanted to like this foundation having read all the great reviews and seeing how gorgeous it applies on other people. but for me :-/ it just wasn't good enough. I'm an NC45 in mac and have a yellow undertone. this foundation i feel like has a more red undertone despite all the claims. it doesn't enhance my skin colour but makes it look like I am wearing a Mask I am not sure whether this is because of the colour I was advised to purchase which is a number 6 in Lancome or whether this is the nature of the product. ANOTHER thing i have noticed is that it started to break me out. I have never really used any foundations that had an effect on my face. being a person that is already prone to acne and has a sensitive skin, a product that breaks me out regardless of how beautiful it looks is a NOOOO GOOO...Besides my personal preferences I do see why other people might like it. It does give u a nice finish for a foundation, the texture is great and I just wish they had alternatives for people with yellow undertones like a (warm/cool or clay/ earth) kind of thing. Also note that it does not stay on for as long as 24 hours and the longer you have it on the more it fades. Overall I would say that it depends on your skin. If your skin doesn't break out from the product or if you are generally blessed with great skin than I would definitely advise this over any other MAC foundation. If you have a sensitive acne prone skin than you might have to carefully rethink the purchase.
