This is actually amazing ! I have this in tawny beige and I'm about NC40-42 , it matches beautifully and literally looks like you have no makeup on, just flawless skin. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a natural, flawless foundation that feels good on your skin and looks amazinggg!
I have this concealer in NC42 and honestly - i hate it. My drugstore concealers are even better then this. I have alottof fine lines in my under eyes as well as very very dark under eye circles. This is disastrous for both. Initially when i put it on , it looks great. Give it an hour and its orange, caked up, creased and makes my under eyes look even worse. I've tried combining this with other concealers but its just so drying it hasnt worked with anything. On top of it all, it was expensive and terrible packaging. I will not buy again!

I have extremely dark under eye circles and I'm kind of on the fence with this concealer. It is very light weight and the texture is great, and I think for someone with not too dark under eyes it would work beautifully. But for me, it doesnt really cover completely - leaves somewhat of a grey cast and does not last long unless set with a powder. However, I love this for laying concealers (which i have to do in order to cover my very dark circles) Its lightweight enough that I can add it while layering concealers and it will not get cakey. Try this out if its not working for you, pair it with different concealers
Maybe this blush is great for fair skin tones but this literally does not show up on my NC40 skin - if you are in the tanner skintones i would not purchase
This blush is so pigmented and gorgous. I think people leaving bad reviews are just being snobby about it. Honestly, it has the same if not more pigment as a MAC blush, it jus has cheap packaging and u have to use a light hand or it can be too much. But what do u expect for the cheap price you pay? This is one of the only drugstore blushes that show up on my tan NC40 skin without having to build it up. It really is worth the try :)

I cannot live without this! As a child I had severe eczema, rashes and skin problems. I visited dermatoligist for years and tried hundreds of medications. One of the dermatoligist recommended I try using this daily on my face and I'm so happy he did. This is the only thing that moisturized and cured my dry irritated skin. It has no fragrance or things that will harm your skin. I would recommend anyone who has dry and sensitive skin to use this daily. It is a bit pricey for a drugstore moisturizer, but worth every penny and I swear by it. LOVE this!
Honestly I was so dissappointed by this. There is so much hype on youtube and MUA about this, so I picked it up and it wasnt cheap at all. I have tanned olive skin and VERY dark circles. It was very sheer and didn't cover them at all, instead turns them into a terrible grey cast beneath my eyes which make it look worse. I think someone with very light dark circles would benefit from this, also someone with fairer skin. There is so shade selection and it cannot be replaced as a concealer for someone with very dark circles. If you have extremely dark circles and you are tan/olive, this is not worth the investment. If you want it as a treatment, perhaps the original roller without the tint would work. Overall, a dissappointment. UPDATE: I did an indepth review on my blog with swatches on my NC40-42 skin if you want to see how it looks - http://missbeyondbeauty.blogspot.ca/2012/08/concealer-critic-garnier-skin-renew.html

I felt like i wasted my money. The lady at the store told me it would help with my very dark and dry under eyes and hydrate. It really dissappointed me. First off, it irritated my eyes and eye area, i do have sensitive skin so that may have been why. After putting it on the natural thing to do is rubbing it in..whenever i tried doing that it would begin peeling in white residue (like how eraser shavings look) it was bizarre and my eyes felt irritated and dried. I have stopped using if because of zero results and irritation. I do not recommend this to anyone, especially people with dry and sensitive skin.
This did not show up at all on my tan skin but perhaps would on someone fairer
