I am a concealer junkie so I had to purchase this especially because I liked the Maybelline Super Stay foundation. This is something that I store in my make-up bag for touch ups. I purchased this for $12 AUD from a local pharmacy. It is probably the dupe of many high end concealers out there. Great value for the price.
There are a lot of shade available, but I find that this is so popular that most places run out!! It is a high coverage concealer that is highly pigmented and has a matte finish. One layer is enough to covers most of my acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, acne, pores and undereye circles.
It isn't very buildable because it does cake, but more layers can be applied if the product is warmed up properly.
It has a faint chemical smell which I don't really notice. It a thick gooey concealer that is creamy and smooth, but not very fluid. I don't break out from this formula unless I leave it on for a long time. I find that the formula separates a bit over time but after shaking/ mixing it up it's fine! Sometimes it does accentuate lines and dry spots so properly moisturising is a must!
To apply this I use a separate brush, or use my fingers to warm up the product to dot and pat the product into place. It lasts all day and has good oil control.
The packaging doesn't feel cheap and most liquid/ cream concealers are packaged like this. It's sturdy and travel friendly. It has a screw top with a doe-tip applicator which is fairly unhygienic though.
