This definitely does what it says it does. It is extremely pigmented. You do not need much to get a flawless face. As such, for some this could be a quick, out-the-door product; for others, it might require a bit more effort to get a natural look. If you want a natural look, you truly need like a RICE-SIZED amount of product. Apply bits of it to the areas of your face you want coverage, and I think it best to blend out using light stroked with your fingers to melt the product into the skin. You may need more product if you use a sponge or a brush, but I can't imagine - for an oily-skinned person - adding more of this product to the face because...the main ingredient is MINERAL OIL.

I bought this for spot concealing, and since it is so pigmented, it does conceal quite well, but I find that it is not long wearing. I have oily skin, but it is not super majorly oily, and I get quite long wear from a variety of foundations without using setting sprays or even an intense set with powder (I do set with powder, but I don't need to be really stringent about it), but this doesn't wear well even with a good set with a quite dense brush (Shiseido Perfect Foundation brush). This also broke me out even worse where I used it, which I could have guessed, since I do not get on well with mineral oil. On the plus side, if this does work for you, it should last you a very long time. But I would recommend you store it in cool area because of all the oils in its ingredient list.

Many people - as you can see from the reviews here - love and revere this product. I highly suggest you look up Karima McKimmie's YouTube video for more information before purchasing. She also has a brief shade guide on her blog, linked in that video, and The Beauty Professor has the shades swatched on her blog.

My shade matches for reference
Mac NC35-42 (I mix for my perfect shade depending on the time of year)
Face and body C5
Maybelline Superstay 24hr- 220 (fall/winter) 310 (summer)
MUFE- y405

I have this in sx10 and sx11 and mix them to get my perfect shade. A little goes a very long way. You can use this alone, but I find that there a bit more drag that way and it WILL CATCH on to the drier patches in your face. I find it best mixed an eye cream if used under the eye: and I do love to use this as a mixer with foundation when I wanna bump up coverage and slightly correct the tone. I find that on certain parts of my face it lasts longer than others. I wouldn’t apply this in areas that have deep lines/have a lot of movement (like around the mouth to avoid the settling in laugh lines, even ones you don’t think you have)

My ride or die/ holy grail makeup product!!!

Please give this a chance! I have never tried to type a review so quick in my life better, just to get it out there. This will last you for a year or more! The price is a steal for this!

You can use the tiniest dab for a creaseless under-eye concealer. This will hide virtually any pigment and hperpigmentation you would want covered.

The finish: I LOVE the way this looks on the skin on its own. This blends fine with a sponge or a brush. However, use something like organic jojoba/coconut oil or petroleum jelly as your base, and this will blend like a dream.

People would always compliment me on my skin when I would wear this and had not so perfect scarred tissue and hyperpigmentation.

I set this with the laura mercier translucent powder or a bit of the Coty Airspun powder.

I would leave this on its own if you're someone who isn't scared to walk out without setting their foundation. If you choose this- you will have the most natural- healthy looking skin ever!

The down side about this product is that I had to buy two because their individual shades don’t match me. Mixed together, it’s a perfect match. TOTALLY WORTH IT. I stopped using it awhile back because I started trying new products (like every makeup junkie does). But I decided to give this puppy a try this morning and it reminded me why this was my go to product for months!!! It very versatile. You can use it has a concealer, foundation, contour, whatever! It looks so natural on the skin and it leaves it looking flawless. I advise that you use a brush vice a beauty blender. The application and finish is absolutely beautiful.

I have been using this for several weeks now and I absolutely love it!! I use a very very small amount mixed with Hourglass mineral veil. In this way, it’s more like a bb cream but in combo with the primer, it lasts a very long time. It’s a thick product on its own, so I don’t recommend using large amounts. I also don’t really think this would work very well as under eye concealer as it would crease easily, at least anything more than a very light application. However, I love it in the way that I use it, and it works for me.

I’ve only used this as a spot concealer because I don’t ever go for full coverage foundations although I’m curious to know how this would mix with a moisturizer to make a sheer base with. As a spot concealer it works really well and you only need the tiniest amount to be able to fully cover a spot. I recommend using a fluffy brush to blend it out, for some reason a sponge doesn’t move it around as well. I also find that I can’t use this around my nose and under eye area, even though it’s creamy it makes those areas look really dry and flaky. I do really appreciate the color selection though, it’s really hard to match my light-ish olive skin and the color SX07 matches pretty perfectly for me!

I love using the Sensual skin enhancer! It is loaded with pigment and a little goes a long way. I suggest mixing this with either your moisturizer or a face oil in order to sheer it out. Otherwise it gets Cake-y. I like to use multiple shades as my concealer, foundation, and contour.

SX07.. I have finally found a foundation that is amazing! This foundation lives up to the hype. I mixed it with Becca's shimmering highlighter in the color Pearl and blended,blended and blended. Right now it is the 10th hour and still going strong!!
UPDATE!!!!!

I just tried another technique. I used a damp beauty blender and sprayed fix plus on it and applied the foundation this way. AMAZING!!!!

This is a great concealer. Can also be used as a heavier foundation. It has a thick whipped consistency. A little goes a long way. Nice travel size. I personally use it under my eyes and spot treatment else where. Then dust over with powder. Color selection is also great. Depending on my skin color at the time/season I sometimes mix color to match.

If you don't have this concealer/foundation I encourage you to get it. Yes it's pricey but I have had this for a little over a year and I still have half a jar left. A little goes such a long way. When I use it, my skin looks flawless!!! I recommend it to everyone and will keep telling everyone it is by far my favorite ever. I love this stuff!!
