I did not like this concealer when I first tried it, but once I figured out the trick to applying it I began to love it.

The consistency of this concealer is thick and waxy so I assumed that it would apply more smoothly if I first warmed it up with my fingers. However when applying with my fingers (I only use it on my under eyes/inner corner) I noticed it was patchy and obvious …
