so I purchased this several months ago, as my first ever concealer. it works pretty good! I mean I really have nothing to compare it to, but I do like it a lot. it covers acne and scars nicely, and it's good for under eyes as well! I've seen people using like a few different concealers for like their eyes and blemishes and this is totally an all around concealer.
Dried out my skin
I used this as an under eye concealer and it caused my skin to flake and crack! I thought I had some kind of infection and I ended up throwing it away. the coverage was too much and it had almost no staying power. Horrible product. If you have sensitive skin then don't use any cover girl face products!
I do not like this product. I tried so very hard to make it work for me, but it failed me. The packaging is OK. The top blue part is kind of junky. I like the applicator, but the product inside was a whole different ball game. Doesn't work under eyes, and for me, it doesn't conceal any pimples or blemishes. I suppose you could use it as a highlight, but I will not due to the irritation it caused on my skin. Not a pleasant experience, and not my favorite product. Complete miss with this concealer.
I must say this product doesn't do anything for me as a concealer. Its too sheer but instead of throwing it away or returning it I decided to find another use for it. I find it works great as a highlight. It brightens nicely without all the shimmer. I also found it as a great way to keep lipstick (especially red ones) from bleeding or if they already bled Ill use it to get clean up the area. I ll definitely be repurchasing this.
Not for under eyes, maybe for blemishes, will try as a primer and find other uses
I got this product a long time ago, along with a few other makeups. I'm not sure whether the person who gave me this and the other makeups was pawning off unwanted makeup or was giving new makeup to me. I didn't use the concealer for while but decided to crack it open at one point. The packaging is cute, portable and fits perfectly in any train case, makeup kit or makeup collection. I like the doe foot applicator, personally. However, the actual product at hand is nothing to brag about, in my opinion. The concealer I received was the lightest shade, and it has pinky/peachy/yellow undertones. Its liquidy, runny and sheer, so it doesn't cover dark circles in the the least. It might just barely cover a blemish or two, if the face is prepped, primed, and full of foundation, beforehand. But, all hope is not lost! I'm a huge fan or recycling makeup/skin care containers, and using makeup for other purposes than how its specified, as well as multi-tasking if thats possible. That being said, the ladies on this thread and especially, Emma R. and Erin Z, gave me a few great ideas of how to resurrect a certainly "meh" makeup product. :)
This is a great all round product!
To be truthful i don't use this as concealer that often, maybe if i need a light touch up. But I usually put it underneath my normal concealer to begin with. But this is such a great primer, for swatches or for your eye, and i am always using it to highlight my face! I was not a fan of the product before, but now I wish i could find it in-stores! Would not recommend it as a full coverage concealer, but it's worth the buy!
