Wanted to love this so much!
I love OCC, and the shade range of these concealers had me drooling. I'm extremely, EXTREMELY fair, and when I saw a shade match, I knew I wanted it. I waited and waited until I finished my last concealer, and purchased it. That was about where the excitement ended unfortunately.
I was so excited to use this because I've heard amazing things about it, and I have very dark circles under my eyes, so I thought this would be a miracle worker. Nope. The texture is very thick and dry, which is good in a concealer, but trying to use and blend it on the delicate under eye area was very rough. Once I got it how I wanted it to look, I'd pass by a mirror in an hour or two and notice all the product had collected in the fine lines and pores in my undereye area. And since it's such a stiff product, it wasn't just a 'blot and blend and good to go' fix.
I've tried applying this with a sponge, a damp sponge, a brush, my fingers, everything. I cannot make it work for what I need it for.
On a plus side, it does work great for a facial concealer, but I don't suffer from acne a lot, so I really don't get my money's worth from buying this product.
Holy Grail Concealer
I ordered this online and got really lucky because I wasn't sure what color I would need, but when it arrived it was a perfect match. It's comparable to Benefit's Boiing concealer (which was my favorite for a long time), the differences are that the OCC concealer is $2 more, you get 8 grams of product instead of 3, it's easier to work with, and the shade range is 110% better. I can't say enough about the OCC concealer. It blends like a dream, it's SO easy to work with, very creamy but not too heavy, perfect for the undereye area or blemishes and discoloration. The ONLY thing I don't like about it, which is why I gave it 4.5 stars, is the $20 price tag.
Dark Circle Eraser!!
I need this in a shade lighter, Y0. This is the only concealer I've found that covers my blue/purple vein dark circles. It's a miracle in a pot. It's a very creamy, but dry non greasy texture. It creeps in my under eye lines a tiny bit, but nothing that can't be blotted away. This is better pigmented than a full coverage foundation. Once I get the correct color, this along with the Skin Tint with be my holy grail products. This concealer is truly amazing. I also think their color range is great. However, I wish they'd go one stage lighter because I'm in the shade Y0 and I'm no where near Irish translucent white skin.
not my favorite. i used to like this but now that i am olde it makes creases shows up more for me but ymmv it worked well when ii was younger
I took Makeup Artistry Classes with "The Glam Fairy" Alexa Prisco and we got a kit LOADED with OCC Products. I love everything from OCC. The concealers especially! They have great coverage. The only bummer is the price. A little pricey.
Love but a little dry
I really love OCC and excited they are coming out with new products!!! I really like these new concealers but they are better for oily skin, they have a tendency to be a little dry. Try adding a little eye creme to the mix to make it a little more fluid
The only concealer I use now.
I've been using this concealer since June. usually I'll get tired of the way a products wears after a month, but I've used this on myself and clients and its amazing. It's very pigmented, goes on smooth, stays put, and a little goes a long way. It's the ultimate concealer for me.
This concealer is amazing! I can wear it by itself under my eyes or with any foundation. It sets itself and lasts a long time.
The fact that it covers without looking like you have a ton of makeup on, makes it ideal for HD filming. I haven't tested it yet on set, but after wearing it in the recent heat wave in LA, I was so impressed with how it lasted. The only other concealer that comes close to texture (I have found) is CoverFX Camouflage concealer. But they do not have the color range that OCC does. Plus, I love the pots (OCC) vs. the tubes (CoverFX).
Definitely a YES!
OCC SKIN: CONCEAL is formulated keeping that need for natural in mind and even addresses those vegan needs. They also paid attention to caring for skin, so I like that they added the Aloe Leaf Extract and Vitamin E.
To give it the pro edge, they made sure the formula was very opaque, but also creamy (not stiff or dry). It applies smoothly and conceals easily without looking heavy or mask-like. The satin-matte finish has a distinct skin-like appearance which makes it perfect for all media (print, film, video). And, it’s ideal for HD format …where skin needs to look “real”.
