Most liquid concealers have less pigment than creamy ones.
You can try Mac Studio Finish.


I have also heard that Rimmel hide the Blemish is also very good and v. cheap too.

I'll go try the MAC studio one. Argh. We don't have Rimmel in Singapore or Melbourne.

Thanks!

i use rimmel hide the blemish under my eyes only
w/no other base make up . . just serum + moisturiser
v.pigmented + creamy . . i keep coming back to it
however . . it does tend to gather in the tiny lines under my eyes i get when i smile
so i have to set it w/powder . . or just pat it out again

I'm currently using MAC studio finish, the colour is perfect although I find this concealer to be very dry ( even when I mix it with a bit of moisturizer ). Haven't found my HG concealer yet.

I LOVE Mac studio finish. The best I've tried so far. But Biotherm's Forget It liquid concealer is great too, and it does feel lighter.

I bought the MAC studion finish one. Tried to use it before school today and spent 5 minutes trying to blend it in. Guess it'll get better with practise though.

The trick is to apply it imediatly after you have moisturized and also not to spread it and rather "tap" it.

Also, take a bit with your ring finger and warm it agains the back of your hand- only then apply it.

The Ida: Although it may sound like a good trick, eventually it will make your product to go bad as makeup products should allways be in a cool enviorment.

^I haven't experienced that my concealer went bad, I always do it in the winter. Have done it forever. I think it only applies to fluid products, honestly.

That is such an awesome idea, you are so clever! Karma!

I am using Lancome Effacernes due to it's good reviews on Makeup Alley. It's a little meh for blending but it might just be that I am using an inferior powder to set the concealer. It's not very effective on blemishes but I find that if applied with a tiny little concealer brush and then set with powder it's pretty good. I mostly use it for undereye circles and darkness, which is what it was really meant for. I'm using Porcelaine I and it's really good for brightening up the eye area. I apply it with a quo cream eyeshadow brush.

I used to use dior skinflash but it was too expensive for me, and wore off really fast, in retrospect I think it was meant as a highlight like YSL touche eclat.

I bought YSL Touche Eclat early January, and now it smells rotten. I always used it on clean skin and took good care of it. I'm pretty irritated, because it wasn't even worth the money when it was in good condition for me. What can I do?

Nothing unless you bought it from a place with a very good return policy. Also, you can write a complaint to YSL cosmetics and hope they will send a replacement

I had a concealer disaster today. Was in the rush this morning and slapped on MAC stodio fix concelaer onto my acne scars then tried to blend it in without using a mirror. 2 people cam up to me today to ask why a patch of skin on my face was a different colour.
