How can a $3 concealer be so full coverage? I am amazed at how they do it, but L.A. Girl has such great products for even greater prices! First of all, the packaging alone makes it so easy to use. A tight little squeeze and a bunch of product goes directly to the tip where you can paint on the concealer to the designated area. Also, the shade range is fantastic! I own the green corrector shade, the yellow corrector shade, and the shade "toast". I use the green corrector shade whenever I'm having a bad breakout, and it cancels out any redness SO well! I use the yellow corrector shade to highlight (works amazing, I have a yellow undertone) and put that under my eyes, forehead, bridge and tip of nose, and on the chin and set that in place with a pressed banana powder and have no creasing throughout the entire day. I use the shade "toast" to cream contour. It is my perfect contour shade! Also, it blends into the foundation like a dream, using either a brush or sponge. A little goes a long way with this heavy, full coverage concealer, so expect it to last a longtime. Hopefully the low price of all these amazing LA. Girl products remain forever so I can keep layering and layering this product over all my old lady wrinkles. I'll always highly recommend to a friend... best of the best in concealers!

When I first bought and tried this product, I did not like it at all. Several months later, I found this in my makeup kit and decided to try it again. I loved it! I realized the reason why I didn't like it at first was because of the way I was applying it. The application process greatly influences how the product will look on your face. When I first tried the product, I put A LOT underneath my eyes and blended with my fingers. Big mistake! I found that when I applied a lot of this product under my eyes, it made my fine lines very noticeable. When I tried this product for the second time, I applied a lot less product farther down from my eyes. I took a damp sponge and blended the product, working upwards. I find that when you apply the product farther down from your eyes and work up, fine lines won't be noticeable because it's not settling into those creases. I applied the product underneath where my eyesocket ends, or about an inch under my bottom lash line. I would say the concealer is light/medium-buildable coverage. It did make my dark circles less noticeable, but it didn't completely "erase" them. If you're looking for a heavy duty concealer, this is not the one for you. The coverage is good for someone who doesn't have severe dark circles. I also wouldn't say it's an eye "treatment." Although it claims to have some beneficial ingredients as an eye treatment would, I couldn't notice a difference in my skin quality. My main complaints about this product are the twisting mechanism used to dispense the product and the sponge. Even when you're done with the product, a lot of product is wasted because it dries up in the sponge, and you can see product leftover on the twisting mechanism. It's a great product for light/medium coverage, but I'm giving it a B, borderline C, because it doesn't "erase" dark circles; it's not a treatment; and a lot of product is wasted. *** Notes: This product's applicator sponge is not suitable for blending. If you try to use the applicator sponge to blend, it will be a huge mess. To blend, I use a damp sponge or the "expert face brush" from Real Techniques.

I love this concealer! I'm pretty particular and picky when it comes to concealers, but this one is impressive, especially being from the drugstore. It is lightweight and medium coverage, therefore if you're looking for something to really cover up dark circles or correct spots you may need to spend a little bit of time building up the product. Personally, I love this concealer to highlight/contour and sometimes prime the eyes, and I leave the correcting of discolorization and acne to a more full coverage concealer (Maybelline Instant Age Rewind is great for this). I like to pair the Maybelline Fit Me concealer with a matte foundation because I've found that it is dewy and leaves the skin looking hydrated and healthy, which is something the skin needs after a heavy, very matte full face of foundation. The only complaint I have about this product is the shade range. I'm very used to drugstore products having a poor shade range so it comes as no surprise to me that there's only six different shades, but since the Maybelline Fit Me foundation has so many shades I thought this would compliment that! Overall, I would definitely recommend this concealer to a friend and will continue to purchase and use it as an everyday product. I do hope that they eventually expand the range of shades so that more people could enjoy the product as much as I have.

After researching the best makeup for fair skin, the NARS Concealer in Chantilly was recommended. I was going to splurge and purchase it ($29), but a friend of mine insisted I try the NYX Concealer Wand first. I am SO glad I did. It works wonders on my dark under eye circles, and for a fraction of the price! I also like that they have a Porcelain color, since it's hard for me to find make up that is light, but not yellow-y. I definitely recommend this product!

This concealer is absolutely AMAZING! It claims to cover tattoos so I was pretty excited to try it! I have scaring from acne and my skin tends to show redness in some areas. This concealer covers all of my acne scars and I love that because they give me a complex. It also covers any redness on my face and helps high light certain areas when I put it on after my foundation. It's also great at covering under eye circles but I do recommend using some thing very hydrating under your eyes IF you have dry skin under your eye area. I use ELF Hydrating under eye primer and that fixes that little fiasco! This concealer is what it says it is...Heavy Duty so you do not need a lot actually very small amounts and you want to apply thin layers TRUST me and other reviewers a LITTLE bit of product goes a very long way.... I've had the same tube for 3 months almost 4 now and I use it faithfully everyday. So... no acne scars and next to flawless skin for only $6!?!? THANK YOU VERY MUCH HC!! <3 **TIP** This product applies very nicely, evenly, and flawlessly with a damp beauty blender. It gives an airbrush effect when patted into the skin with the sponge. Also applies nicely with a dense kabuki eye brush using the same patting motion.

Absolutely love this ! I went through one tube after just randomly buying it at Ulta a few months ago and I was hooked. I just bought 2 more so I wouldn't run out again. The pigmentation is amazing and a little bit goes a long way. It blends out so smoothly and it does an amazing job at covering any dark circles or small imperfections. It's very long lasting and it doesn't show texture throughout the day. It is just amazing !
