I will definitely NOT be repurchasing this product. It took a lot of green to cover the redness around and under my nose, and when I put the natural colored concealer over the green (after waiting a good 5 mins for it to dry) it wet the green concealer again and blended with it. So although I wasn't alien green anymore, I looked really sickly. It was disgusting. With both of the concealers, it ended up looking thick and cakey and didn't even do the job it was meant to do! Not to mentionI needed to put foundation over both concealers to cover up the sickly green tone to my face.. which made my makeup look even thicker. Looks like I'm still on that hunt for a good green concealer to neutralize my redness.
I really had high hopes for this product. It's meant to set foundation and keep it looking fresh all day and not get oily, and also take away that powdery look. First of all, it does not spray out in a fine, even mist. So when I spray it on my face, there's like little droplets of the spray on my face.. almost like raindrops. Also, it feels sticky and unnatural. It felt like I sprayed hairspray on my face and no, I didn't use a lot of the product. Just two or three sprays (as instructed) felt gross. It also made my skin look shiny in some spots and it just looked really bad and kinda cakey. It reminds me of how my makeup looks when I come home really late after a long night and didn't touch up my makeup at all while I was out. Not really the refreshed, natural look I was hoping for with this product. I've actually tried it out quite a few times, thinking maybe I was just spraying it too close to my face or something, but I didn't like how it looked anytime I used it. I haven't used it in awhile and decided maybe I'd give it another chance today.. I ended up taking off my makeup and doing it again because it just completely ruined it! Bottom line, this product was a total waste of money and I will not be repurchasing it, although it does smell amazing!

LOVE LOVE LOOOOVE THIS! I have oily eyelids and every other eyeliner I've used leaves a "stamp" on my upper eyelid. This doesnt do that at all! I've been using this every day for about a year now and I am still using my FIRST pot of it! This stuff is incredible. Its smooth and easy to fix mistakes. I love the brush and the colors. I use charcoal and its pretty much black, but not too dark. Bottom line, this is well worth the money. MUST HAVE!

WORST. CONCEALER. EVER! Do yourself a favor and don't waste your time and patience with this product. I really did want to love it, but I will never use this concealer again. It was waaay to difficult to apply. It dried hard and cracking. It felt like my skin would rip when I smiled. Also when applying this product.. If I tried to cover up a spot a little more, the whole spot would come off and it literally looked like I put on a full face of makeup and then took remover and took off one spot like the size of my finger tip and it would be impossible to cover that spot and blend it correctly without removing a huge section and redoing it again. It took me waay too long and I dont have that kind of time in the morning, nor the patience to be using a concealer that has soo many problems. Im looking to cover up my flaws, not create more. It would look patchy.. It also looked too cakey and wasnt that great for covering up pimples. It dried to fast and I have read that in other reviews, even though I chose to ignore it. I figured "Im good with makeup, Ill be fine" but it really is just an awful product. I used it once and had that patchy problem (which took me an extra half hour to do my makeup, making me late for school), but decided to give it one more chance. I had the same problem and as soon as I was done, I put the concealer right back in its package and I plan on returning it the first chance I get. This concealer was NOT worth the $10 I paid for it. I wouldnt use this concealer again if someone gave me a bunch of tubes of it for free. Dont waste your time on this product. Looove the Revlon ColorStay Foundation, but I HATE the concealer! For those of you with acne, I reccomend Glamoflague concealer. It's only like $6 at WalMart and I believe its by Hard Candy. It gives great coverage and even though it doesnt last as long as the ColorStay if you have oily skin, it is well worth touching up a few times during the day. It is great for covering pimples and is easy to apply.
