Correcting Concealer Broad Spectrum SPF 20 - null
Best Concealer Since I Began Using Them At Age 13!
I'm 53, medium complexion that is combination, brown hair and eyes. I am sure over the past years I have tried hundreds of concealers from big brands in drug stores and pricey department stores and all failed miserably. My main concealing problem area is hereditary dark under eye circles which become purplish/black during allergy season.
Doesn't matter the brand, claims, price or type concealer none of them worked past to present until now. Most concealers were too pink, too yellow or too light. So color was always a problem. Consistency were extremes too. Either too liquid and would soak into my skin, too thick and drying, or would go on great and look great then within 30 minutes would disappear or accentuate wrinkles to the extreme.
This concealer has good color choices, and while maybe not looking exactly like your skin tone on your computer/android screen in actuality they are very forgiving like all BE foundations are. If you can "try before you buy" where BE is sold I would suggest that before buying. I bought the Light 2 and color was fine, just the tiniest bit too light. I received free samples of the concealers from another purchase and discovered that medium 2 is perfect!
It covers wonderfully. It is easy to apply and I use my finger for best results because brushes don't give as great application with concealer for me. Common sense application starting out minimally and then building for needed coverage. It takes just a few seconds & done!
One drawback is that within a few minutes it does settle into lines under my eyes. With that said it is no where near as bad as other concealers. After the product settles in the lines I take my bare finger and gently pat over that area. I do not add more. It does help. That was the only downside of this product. Which is why I gave it a 4 out of 5 stars.
Normally I'm not a big fan of liquid/creamy makeup products, so I was quite surprised with how much I love this one. I have severe acne and scaring(from acne), and a lot of redness on my face. And this product hid most of it very well. I was also impressed at how a little bit goes a long way. I apply this product with the bareminerals maximum concealer brush and use my fingers to blend by gently patting.
Not all that . . .
I wanted to love this product but as some reviewers stated, this concealer settles very quickly into the fine lines around my eyes. Light 2 is a good shade for under my eyes and medium 2 is good for blemishes. It does need to be "touched up" after a few hours.
Didn't work for me
Too thick for me. It creased and caked up bad and did not layer well under mineral veil. I'll stick with well rested for a more natural look.
I love this product!
I've tried many many many concealers, but this one is Definitely the best. I have (generational) dark circles under my eyes and this covers So nicely! I thought Tarte's concealer was good... but this one is even creamier and the color is Perfect. Thank you BE!
Product Is Amazing - Packaging Leaves Something to Be Desired
I've bought this product many times over and I think it's fabulous. The coverage is great and it does not irritate my sensitive skin, which I am particularly grateful for during the dry winter. However, within a few weeks of opening a new compact, the plastic hinge breaks without fail, leaving the concealer without an attached lid. I do not handle the packaging roughly, nor does my makeup bag sustain any out-of-the-ordinary daily wear and tear, which might result in the hinge deteriorating and separating from the base.
Overall, I love the quality of the concealer, so much so that I am willing to deal with the subpar packaging.
Best concealer for acne scars!
I have some old acne scars as well as newer ones from the occasional breakout. And after trying many products, including Summer Bisque and Well Rested, this is by far the best. I have not noticed if the scars have gotten lighter but it does a great job of covering up my red and brown scars. I also use it under my eyes to cover up a little bit of the darkness I have. I do have some tips that I've discovered by trial and error. My first tip is to prep with a primer before applying, especially under your eyes. It doesn't eliminate the creases or fine lines 100% but the outcome is better with the primer. Secondly, use your finger tips, rather than a brush, so you are not wasting the product. Mine lasts a good few more weeks this way. Lastly, when applying with your finger, don't rub but dab. I've found that when your rub, it settles into your fine lines. Hope this helps!
I was looking for something with great coverage, but didn't look like I had makeup caked on my face. The Correcting Concealer covers the redness on my face around the nose and eye area. I definitely would recommend this for everyone!
does its job
This concealer is creamy but still a bit on the dry side (magnifies dry patches). It conceals well. I use it on my dark spots (not under my eyes) using a lipgloss applicator, and if needed I'll dab on a second layer with my fingers. Careful, because it settles into fine lines.
Wonderful concealer! Just has an issue or two
I use this concealer every day around my eyes and over any red spots or blemishes that I have. It works great! Covers as much as I need it to, except for beneath my eyes. It doesn't 100% cover my dark circles, and it does crease on my eyelids, but other than that it's fantastic.
Correcting Concealer Broad Spectrum SPF 20
WOW is all I can really say to sum up this product. I literally grew confident just with the concealer and nothing else. I did not even have to use my Baremineral's matte foundation. I literally cried when I ran out of this stuff. I am currently awaiting my next shipment. I cannot wait to feel as beautiful as this product is for the world. Thank you BareMinerals. You have done it again!
I like this concealer. It's creamy and a little goes a long way. I use this for my dark spots under the original foundation. It does seem like it is fading my dark spots! The sales woman used a darker shade which I thought would be too dark but underneath the foundation it blends so well.
I made a big mistake buying this. I was using it as my under eye concealer. I used it for a few days in a row after purchasing and I started to break out under my eye and along my top cheek area. Stopped use for a while and went back to it bc I ran out of my usual, same thing happened. I have sensitive skin and this just isn't the right one for me.
LOVE this concealer
I have some discoloration on my forehead and this concealer almost completely hides it with such a natural look and very little amount. LOVE it!
I have severe acne and redness on my blemishes and this is the best product I have ever tried for covering it up all day. I would recommend it to anyone!
Warning...This product creases
This product provided great coverage for my dark circles on my tan complexion, but it ended up creasing after a few hours. So sad.
Best concealer on the planet!
I have tried so many expensive concealers and they all crease and settle and made me look way worse. I had no hopes for this I honestly figured it would be just like all the others but I was soooo wrong. This stuff is perfect! No creasing or settling into fine lines at all and it covers my darkness under my eyes. Trust me if your on the fence try this it is the best out there and I tried almost all that cost way more than this one. It also covers any redness and scars on my face. Perfect , perfect and perfect thank you I love bare minerals!!
Wost Concealer I've ever used.
I'm so upset by the amount of money I spent on this. It covers absolutely nothing at all, not my dark circles, not blemishes, not redness, and not dark marks. This is the worst concealer that I've ever tried, including drugstore brands.
Your Skin's Best Friend!
This concealer can do everything and more. I'm really impressed with it. I have dark circles underneath my eyes, and every time I apply this, it makes them disappear! It also works well to conceal and cover up any blemishes or dark marks one may have. Not to mention, it lasts a while! Good work, Bare Minerals, keep it up!
I am the shade golden tan in the matte foundation and use the shade tan 2 in the correcting concealer. I use the product before applying my foundation to help cover up dark spots and blemishes. I use the product after applying my foundation to help cover up under eye circles. It conceals really well!
LOVE this concealer! I originally used the Well-Rested and returned it for this one. I'm so grateful I did, because this was exactly what I was looking for. I haven't had issues with creasing, but maybe it's because I use a concealer brush and only apply a small layer? At any rate, it works great for dark circles and acne cover-ups. Will definitely be buying this one again!
I love this product
I have used the well rested powered as well as the well rested cc eye primer. I liked both products and used them everyday for my dark circles. When this came out I wanted to try it and i love it as well. It does crease a little when i put too much but i just pat it out and it works for me. I got it a bit lighter than my skin because i wanted it as a brightener. I love it!
Covers acne marks and dark spots very well! Not great for for under the eyes since it settles in fine lines even when set with powder. Will buy again just because it works great on blemishes just wish it could help with the dark spots on under my eyes.
I use this to cover up a blemish here and there but usually under my eyes and on my upper lip and it lasts all day! my skin is so difficult to match and this really works perfectly with foundation; it brightens and lightens exactly where I want it to. Love it!
This is a great concealer and it lasts for several hours without touch ups. For the price, I think that the container SHOULD be bigger.
Not For the Fair Skinned
I bought my starter kit online and after a grueling two weeks, was so excited to see it in my mailbox! I open everything up and I'm excited to try it on, obviously struggling to figure out how to use it. I do everything as normal, wash, moisturize, prime, foundation, next is the moment of truth. I swipe my concealer brush into the little pot and start to cover up my dark spots and blemishes. It's slightly off color than my foundation but I figure no problem, finishing powder will fix it. I get done with my routine, hop into my car to go to work and take a glance in the mirror. Brown. My concealer is brown. I have brown spots on my face and even worse, under my eyes. Why?? Why in the world is it possible to have such a light shade of foundation yet the concealer matches not one bit? Worst of all is that I can't use any of my previous concealers because they no longer match my foundation. I love this stuff don't get me wrong, but the concealer shades make absolutely no sense to me. Can we go just a few shades lighter, Bare Escentuals, please??
A truly great concealer.
What a fabulous product the Correcting Concealer Broad Spectrum SPF 20 - Light 1 is. This is an unabashed hit! Works like a charm. It has great staying power and even application. No fuss, no muss. Love it!
I love this stuff, and so does my mother who has aging skin and redness! It works so well for both of our skin types (20 something and 50 something!). Light 2 is great for my dark circles and chin discoloration, whereas Light 1 does wonders for my acne scarring.
Works Great for Rosacea and Scars
I have light to medium skin and have terrible rosacea redness. This stuff works quite well to cover it and stays on well. It's been a real struggle for me to find something that covers it. I use it on my cheeks on any red ares or spots and then I've been using the Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum all over my face. I finish with a dusting of mineral veil. All 3 products are needed to keep the red covered since I have oily skin. If I don't use the mineral veil the redness starts showing again much sooner.
I recently bought Prime Time and Ready Foundation. Ready has fuller coverage than the other foundation I was using. I'm still perfecting using it, but it does cover even better, it just looks more like I'm wearing makeup. I think I will put on less and buff more and see if that helps. I think Ready Foundation will be better to cover the rosacea with my routine.
compact falls apart
there is nothing wrong with the concealer itself, however the little compact that it comes in falls apart. I bought 2 of these in different colors and different times and within a week or so both fell apart.
frustrating trying to put a rubber band around it to hold it together.
