Good for highlighting – not good for coverage

I ordered this mainly for highlighted and contouring my face. It doesn’t provide very good coverage if you have redness or any kind, but it does go on very smooth and the applicator is great. If you have nice skin and are just looking to even out your skin then this is great because it’s very light.

Very cakey

This concealer is very cakey. I don’t know if I got an old bottle or what happened, but it does not conceal well and clumps up even when you use a tiny amount. So far I have found MAC concealer to be the best in terms of coverage and looking natural.

okay but not for daily use

The pallette has a great variety of color for all skin types. Each pot is the size of a half dollar. But, the thing I didn’t like most about it is that when I apply the product onto my skin, it is hard to work with. It also feels dry once it is applied onto the skin. It seems to enhance the lines on my skin more so than not. I use moisturizer to help move the product over my skin and to smooth out the noticeable lines after the product has been applied. I believe this product work great for those who are professional makeup artists or someone who like to play dress up daily or go out at night. However, if you are just someone like me, who wants to wear simple makeup with light coverup, then I would suggest for you to NOT buy this concealer palette and research for a more simple concealer. There are smaller ones that you can purchase aimed more specifically for your skin color and feel less dry.Update October 2011: It’s been a year now since I’ve had this palette. I have ONLY used two colors daily, but not heavily. I have barely or not at all, touched the other pots of colors. I’m still waiting for Halloween to use the darker colors. May have to paint my entire face and go commando or something just to use up the product.

Really Great To Have!

I wanted to wait until I used it for awhile before reviewing. I’m a darkskinned African American female and I use 4 of the shades in here. Its so convienent to have because you can use the the different shades for different things. I use one color for under my eyes, another to cover dark marks on my face, another for under my eybrows and another for the lighter parts of my face. It’s nice and thick and covers well. I like to use my concealer brush instead of my fingers and the coverage is perfect! This is a must have if you are trying to step up your makeup game.

Great Coverage!

Due to heredity, age (I’m 49) and some illness, I have perpetual dark circles and bags under my eyes that make me look tired and older than I am! So I’m always on the hunt for a concealer that will work for me. After trying expensive brands, Dermablend, CM Beauty, and also drugstore brands, they either didn’t cover, caked into fine lines, were the wrong shade, or a combo of all these things. However I think I may have found my savior in Coastal Palettes concealer palette, thank God!!It’s in an array of natural shades that can be mixed and matched, is creamy and super-blendable, and dang, it totally covers my undereye circles!! I was so pleased especially after being disappointed SO many times~~ thank you, Coastal Scents! I recommend~ and will definitely be buying this again! I look fresh and bright eyed once again…and thanks to Amazon who always has what I need.

Not enough of a difference to buy again

I bought this product for myself with some cash I had left over from Christmas. I’ve been using it twice a day, cleansing and toning before putting it on. Then waiting 5-10 minutes brushing my teeth or eating breakfast before putting on moisturizer to let it soak in.I’ve seen minimal results on my small spots and none on my larger ones. Small spots have lightened to a light brown, large spots stayed large and dark. The skin around my spots did get lighter though, so it might be good for those who want to lighten their skin.It’s been 2 months of use and I’m almost done (I ripped open the bottle to get the last bit out). $55 is a lot to pay for such little results. With 4 bottles of this product you can pay for lazer treatments to remove spots permanently. Which is most likely what I will try to do.Some people have gotten results from this product but I am not one of them. Hope you have better luck than I did if you do try it.

LOVE THIS

Ok, I am getting older (unfortunately), and I had a spot appear on my face this past summer. I tried many other things, before I bought this product. Nothing else worked until this. My spot is noticeably lighter. And I’m hoping with time it will disappear. Only into this for 3 weeks so we will see.

Great for dark circles- and doesn’t crease!

I’ve tried them all! I’ve tried highlighters (YSL), I’ve tried concealers- ByTerry Touche Veloutee, Jane Iredale’s highlighter, Bobbi Brown, Laura Mercier (hers are all too orangey) and Estee Lauder’s double wear, even Origins under eye concealer. I am olive/yellow and this stuff is great. Why? Because it covers and somehow moisturizes, without settling in fine lines and without drying (unlike ByTerry and Estee’s)! It really doesn’t crease (YSL!- that’s a highlighter, but even when you use it as directed, it creases in fine lines under my eyes) unlike soooo many others. They have so many colors, i recommend trying in person to find your match. This really brightens my eyes and helps me look awake, refreshed and rested. I have dark circles and bags that are genetic. I’ve had them all my life and it’s a struggle, this has by far been the best. I’ve replaced it now twice and I never replace stuff. This lasts for ages. I recommend applying with your fingertips to warm the product and blend well at the edges, even with a beauty blender at the edges, particularly.

The powder is fine, really its the same powder you can buy anywhere. In my opinion, it’s a little more expensive since you can find loose powder pretty cheap at walmart but it’s more convenient for me to order it.

Covers well for a loose powder!

I expected the coverage of this concealer to be average of a loose powder, usually wearing off during the day, becoming caked in every pore and line.But it doesn’t. It works amazing with skin providing extreme coverage with very little makeup.I won’t go a day without it.

Great product

This is the first leg makeup I’ve ever used and I really like it. I bruise easily and it helps to cover the bruises, not completely, but it helps. It doesn’t rub off on anything, not that I’ve noticed, and it lasts a very long time. If I wear it one day then come home and take a shower it wont wash all the way off because I notice when I take a shower the next day and shave my legs, the product comes off on my razor. Not sure how I feel about that but at least it lasts. Also it does has some little bits of shimmer in it. You can’t really tell they’re there if u put just the right amount on but if u put too much the shimmers are much more noticeable and I dont like that. But overall I feel this is a very good product it gives my legs a beautiful glow and I will purchase again.

I wasn’t happy with how long it took to get to me, but the product is great.

They lost my first order and had to replace it, but I love this product. I’m pretty pale so i put on lotion and then smooth this in. It is perfect for theater where you don’t need arms and legs glowing white. It is a nice warm color. Sometimes if I wear sandals, I put some on my feet and ankles so they don’t look so white. I don’t do tanning beds since I noticed it was prematurely wrinkling my skin. If the fake tan starts to streak, this blends it nicely. It also holds up well in water.

Fantastic Product

I have a lot of spider veins and this doesn’t completely cover them but my legs look like I have on stockings. I have fair skin but the medium glow works well. It’s easy to apply, dries quickly and I’ve had no problems with rub off on my clothes. One problem is it does stain a white washcloth when you wash it off.

Makes lines more obvious and lens wearers beware

This is really the worst concealer I have used. I had such high hopes, but ended up trashing it. The cream was so thick and heavy I felt like I was wearing spackling, even though I used a small amount. My very fine lines were accentuated while wearing this. It also bothered my contacts, which almost never happens. My eyes felt like they were burning after 10 minutes.

Uncomfortable and accentuates flaws

This product looked very promising and I was really excited to try it as part of a Bzz Campaign.Unfortunately it did not deliver what was promised. I will start with the positive: it does cover dark circles well. However, it does accentuate my wrinkles and makes me look older, which is not what I was going for…I wasted a lot of time trying to make this work. I found that the best way to apply this, is over heavily moisturized skin with my fingers after warming it well so it blends better. Even then, I will not wear it in daylight, because, frankly my skin looks awful with it. I could just wear this in the evening, except it makes my skin around the eyes super itchy and uncomfortable, which is strange for something that is supposed to have serum in it.

smooth coverage

I received this free from Bzzz Agent to test. Unfortunately, the color I was sent was too dark. I did really like the product, the coverage and texture. I would buy it in a lighter shade and use it with the Ageless Corrector.

It Works!

This is the first product I’ve found that really does diminish my age spots. I was beginning to think I had some sort of mutant age spots since everything I tried before had reviews that they worked, but didn’t for me.The spots are MUCH lighter than before. They aren’t gone, but are much less noticeable and that makes me happy.I have just finished my first bottle, and have ordered a second.The only think I don’t really like is that you can’t see through the bottle to know when you’re about to run out. But the bottle is pretty! 🙂

This product goes on so light and smooth! It sinks in quickly and within seconds, you can hardly tell you’ve actually applied anything…other than the fact that your skin feels as soft as a baby’s skin! It’s amazing! I’ve only started using it, so I can’t comment on the spot treatment, but I can’t wait to report on that as well. So far, I’m loving this!

Good skills, Avon!

I know it’s quite difficult to find good brightening stuff. I’m Asian, and I have lots of age and sun spot. I didn’t expect that much for this product first,but actually it worked for me. My dark spots on my face has got lighter. You have to be patient to see the result though. It took about 2 weeks for me. I think it’s good product!

Meh

Not impressed at all. Too thin & watery. But Maybelline is classified as ‘affordable’ makeup, so maybe this is what to expect. I’ve had dark circles all my life (and I’m now at the mid-century checkpoint!) I’ve had so many people tell me that it was my EYES that gave away my age, not my skin or body. Chronic dark circles are definitely a nemesis. I’ve used MAC, NARS, MU4Evr, KatVonD (thinking anything designed for covering up tatoos might cover up dark circles!)Bobbi Brown and BeneFit… all were decent but nothing earthshattering. I found L’Oreal’s True Match Crayon to be every bit as good as those and cost much less. For that reason, when I read reviews on this Maybelline product I thought – just MAYBE I was selling the inexpensive brands short (I’m a HUGE fan of Maybelline’s 24Hour color lipstick line!) But they need to return to the lab for this one.Recently, I stumbled upon the NYX line of concealers – quite unexpectedly – after receiving a mascara sample of all things (I don’t even remember WHERE I got the sample)! In their face/makeup line they have an assortment of base color “tints” that do help counteract the “blue” before applying concealer. For the most part I’ve found NYX to be a great line at a reasonable price… not in the mass-market “affordable” line-up of common brands (CG, MabNY, Revlon, LOreal, etc.) but not in the expensive & over-priced premium brands either. Love their mascaras the best of all.Sorry if this is TMI… if you’ve ever suffered with dark circles then you know we are always searching for the holy grail.

Great for faking a good night’s sleep

I tend to get really dark circles under my eyes, especially when I don’t sleep very well the night before. I’ve tried several under eye concealers, but most of them crease or look too pasty. This product gives buildable medium coverage and it doesn’t crease, even if I don’t set it with powder. I will definitely repurchase this concealer!
