The is feels great on my skin but became oily almost immediately. I have to stay away from anything with lots of silicones so that might be the problem. For those without silicone issues the finish of this is beautiful.

I have had issues with lots of products not lasting on my skin. This disappears on me quickly. I have light and its a good color match for nw/nc 15. Too bad my skin eats it.

This is the best concealer out of all the ones I've tried and there have been so many that have disappointed. I have had issues with staying power, oilyness, and breakouts. I don't have any of those problems with this. It last till you take it off, looks like skin and has great coverage. So glad to have found this! Thanks to all who have recommended it!

My holy grail! I love this and no breakouts. This and guerlain lingerie de peau are the only two foundations that don't make me itchy or break me out. This has the better finish of the two. The shades don't oxidize as they previously did. Coverage is a bit less but I like that. Great reformulation. For some reason this goes on better with fingers for me.

This is full coverage! It accentuates lines a little and clogged my pores a lot. Cameo light is probably nw/nc 15/20 and peachy.
It is very moisturizing. Won't work with my oily skin. Light is a good match for nc/nw 20. Coverage is sheer. Good luck
I am really liking this. I have the strangest skin on earth and this is not irritating it so far. I mix it with lotion because its very matte. Even with my oily skin it is very drying, which is nice for a change. Tired of oily face. The coverage is also a bit much for me, I like tinted moisturizers but couldn't find one that wouldn't break me out. I am crossing my fingers on this one. I wear nw/nc 20 and have this in 1.5 and its perfect. Update: Broke me out. I haven't the heart to discuss it further.

I love this bb cream. I have used a few of the asian brands (skin 79, skinfood, misha). I wanted light coverage and a good for your skin formula. This is moist and I have to use finishing powder with it, but It is still beautiful and doesn't break me out which is amazing. I get only slightly oily with this and thats unusual for me with any formula, even double wear, cause I'm very oily. I have light and I'm a nc/nw 20/25. I slept in this and still no breakouts, my skin actually looked better. Update: Broke me out. This is beautiful on but caused cystic acne for me. Ugh!!!
This is a great undereye concealer that can work on the rest of the face. It covers my dark circles and they are doozies. This lasts really well unlike bobbie brown corrector and it isn't heavy. Light is about an nw10/15. Update: This mixed with a small amount of makeup forever full coverage concealer is my hg for face. I mix this with too faced concealer for undereyes.

I have been through so many concealer brands lately and I'm so glad I finally decided to try this. Doesn't crease on me and covers very well and lasts. I love it!! It can also be used for undereye and face, which is what I was looking for. I have this in fair and it works great for my nw/nc 20 skin. I like my concealer a little on the light side. Update: It has caused my eye area to break out and I am so sad. I will have to go back to tarte under eye corrector.

This is the only under eye concealer that works for me. I have crepey skin around my eyes and a lot of darkness in corners.I wear this without eye cream and it moisturizes but doesn't crease. I had to go into sephora to get the right color though because they don't sale the lightest shade(fair/light) online. Bobbie Brown corrector was just too heavy on my delicate eye area. Love how this looks on me. If someone could just tell me what to do with all these brushes. I wish this had a little more staying power.
Liquid -Laura Mercier - Oil Free Supreme Foundation

Lately every foundation I've tried to use has broken me out or gotten oily for no apparent reason. My husband was on the verge of commiting me because of my obsession for a decent foundation. When I finally realized that silicone was the culprit generating my breakouts, I tried this new foundation from laura mercier. Great medium coverage finish. I also don't need to set it. It lasts 6 to 8 hours for me and I'm very oily. The finish reminds me of guerlains lingerie de peau but without the oxidation. I am 02 biege claire(guerlain) nc/nw 20 in mac and I wear blush ivory in this. I mix merle normans energizing concentrate with this to thin it down when I want less coverage, they blend well. Update: I may be having a reaction to the koalin clay not sure yet. I hate my skin.

This didn't work for me. Great color and coverage but it irritated my eyes. I have had this issue with a lot of concealers lately. It also broke my eye area out. If this doesn't bother your skin this is a very good concealer with brightening qualities. It could have replaced BB corrector if I hadn't had a reaction to it. Good luck.
Crème -Chanel - Vitalumiere Hydra (Moist Radiance Emulsion Compact)

I really love how this looks on my skin. I'm extremely oily and I still love this I just blot more often. This foundation is worth the extra effort because of the finish and shade match. Its very natural on me. Coverage is medium but buildable and shadewise I am nc/nw 20/25 or so and I have 20 beige and its perfect. I do wish it wasn't quite as moisturizing but it looks really nice on skin. I don't moisturize first just apply this directly on my face. I can't tolerate silicone very well and this doesn't break me out or irritate me. The vitalumiere aqua liquid irritated me on contact so I couldn't wear that. I only need concealer under eyes with this. Update: It broke me out. I am going to get a skin transplant so I can wear this.
This stuff is fantastic! When I first received this I didn't think it would work for me because it didn't adhere well to my skin. Just seemed to sit there. Then I mixed a tiny amount of estee lauder double matte in and voila. The best foundation ever! It mixes really well with double wear, double matte, and double wear concealer. I've used double matte for years but as I get older its just too much coverage. While looking for a replacement I've been through every foundation out there and it would either look terrible, or break me out, or clog pores. For some reason estee lauder foundations are the only ones, besides guerlain lingerie, that don't break me out or clog pores. I think I may have issues with silicones. Anyway invisible fluid is a godsend for me. I am at last free from foundation hell. Yeah!!! And I am nc/nw 20 and I got 1wn2 in this and its a little yellow I am gonna try to get a better color match when it is released in the states. This didn't oxidize on me at all and I'm super oily. UPDATE: I still like this but it just won't stay on my skin and mixing with double matte broke me out so that didn't work for me. Still a good foundation though.
