I really like the color correctors offered in this line (Yellow/Green) but this did not work for me at all. When used alone, I had to use a lot of it to conceal anything (comparative to the other shades), however, using this amount looked cakey and felt heavy based on the formulation of the product. I was not sure what I could use this for.. not for redness, undereye, etc.... I guess I had specific needs i.e. redness, dark circles, which color correctors did a great job of hiding. But I didn't think this concealer worked very well for any of those uses at all so it was not even a multipurpose concealer.

I got it online for 79 cents and did not expect to even use it since I only wanted the free PF OrganicWear Mascara that came free with it. I tried it anyway since it's a habit of mine to want to try everything. Lo and behold, it is the best concealer I've used for covering undereye circles! I apply it direcly on my skin or use a concealer brush. No matter what, you have to blend--as with any other concealer. Anyway, I spend a lot of money on concealers because I've always been self conscious of my dark circles. It works much better than any skin toned concealer I have used and works best along side your traditional concealer. And maybe it is because I am asian but I find that if I blend enough I can use it without anything else over it. My favorite application would be this alongside an eye brightener. I would definitely repurchase even at MSRP though I don't think I will be running out anytime soon. I also like the fact that I don't need to use as much eye concealer--which tends to be more expensive than what this costs!

I got this in Green because I had the Yellow and I really liked it. I never really understood the whole color balancing thing (only tone corrector I had tried was Elf's Tone Correcting Powder--a little chalky) Anyway, I have a some redness on my cheeks and my nose and I wanted to try this to see if it would get rid of it. I originally had Light stick to try for this purpose, which I felt didn't really cover anything but also felt and looked cakey! Anyway, this green stick does a MUCH BETTER job. I am light skinned, and this may be different for darker skin tones, but I am able to use this product on it's own (apply very lightly and blend well.) without any other products. I love the creamy consistency, although I am worried that the product might dry out before I use all of it since you don't need very much at all. I find it very easy to blend into my skin to combat the redness. I would use either a concealer brush, eyeshadow brush (more often than not I use this to apply concealer), or foundation brush (flat/liquid type). For this particular color, I like the foundation brush most to blend because it distributes the product lightly and evenly across my cheeks. It is the best product I've used so far to get rid of redness. The packaging is convenient though sometimes it could look like you have a seafoam lipstick. If I ever did run out, I would probably repurchase, unless some type of miracle gets rid of the redness in my face! (Or if I found a perfect foundation--working between a few types right now.) I think I got it at Walgreens for only 79 cents on sale, though it seems other places it's about 5-6$. Bottom line: Hides redness. Great if you're looking for a color corrector that isn't powder/drying.
