- Matte liquid concealer with quite a lot of coverage (significantly more than Makeup Revolution).

- A little goes a long way.

- Shades run very fair. Fair beige feels too light for me and I'm NW10. There doesn't seem to be much difference between the fair shades.

- Found it creases under my eyes more than other concealers. Not terrible, though.

Great long-lasting foundation for oily skin. This gets me through the day with mininal touch ups. I put it on at 7am, blot at lunch time and then take it off at 9pm. By the night time it still looks good - no separating or fading.

Finish and formula: Demi-matte finish and a runny liquid formula.
Coverage: Medium coverage but I found it a bit hard to build once it's …

Love this. It's a medium coverage foundation with a natural finish. The liquid is very runny, blendable, buildable and it has gold shimmer running through it (which isn't visible once you apply it but it apparently helps to brighten the skin). In NZ, it's sold with a pump for $27NZD.

Who's it for?
Normal to combo skin - best for these people
Dry skin - …

I'm pretty impressed by this foundation. It's a liquidy, creamy formula with a matte finish and medium-buildable coverage. I found it applied best when I layered it very thinly using a flat brush

Pros:
Relatively cheap
Big shade range (including one the lightest drug store shades I've ever seen - only True Match compares)
Nice matte finish (not too dry …

It's a thin, very blendable concealer with medium coverage. I use this under my eyes and it looks nice and youthful because the formula is a bit light reflective. I always powder this down and I haven't experienced any major creasing. It's also good value for money because a little goes a long way.

My only real complaint with this concealer is the packaging - the sponge …

Great product for people with very fair skin, and I wish I'd bought them sooner. There are plenty of lighteners on the market but this one works well, is reasonably priced ($25NZD) and it's easy to find in NZ/AU shops.

It doesn't seem to mess with your foundation's formula, and it doesn't have a scent (I've been using it with silicone-based foundations) …

This works beautifully if you're after a very subtle, natural-looking satin highlight for fair skin. I've also used it all over my face as an all-over finishing powder. It's a nice product that lasts ages in the pan and looks stunning on your vanity (it's like a pearl or something).

Great concealer! I've used this for a couple of years and I'm a fan - I think it easily stands up against much more expensive concealers.

It's longwearing, high coverage, has a creamy liquid formula, and it dries down relatively quickly to a matte finish. I haven't found that it creases badly, although I always set my undereye with a light powder. The colour …

I use this to boost the coverage of a sheer liquid foundation and to touch up my makeup when a foundation is coming off in areas. It's great for those tasks but it's pricey. If you have the money and you're looking for a high-quality powder, I would still definitely recommend the BB. It's finely milled, has a nice colour selection and provides decent coverage.

A nice, light daytime moisturiser for slightly oily and acne-prone skin. It makes a good base for makeup.

I've been using this for about a year and it's a solid product - it's not a miracle cure, but in my experience it definitely helps if you have mild acne. I have noticed that Effaclar Duo helps prevent my major spots - they're smaller and less frequent since I …
