This provides NO COVERAGE at all!!! I don't know how they can even call it a concealer.

Unfortunately I have very pale skin. I purchased the lightest shade available and it still leaves my skin looking orangey. Maybe this works better for darker complexions but not for me.

I found this concealer to be kind of cool at first, because it would change color, but it also kept changing color. As there is only three shades, I found this concealer to be much darker than I wanted it to be, as the color continued to change after I blended it the desired amount. This concealer has ok coverage, but I also found it to crease. For anyone with terrible discoloration, this would not cover.

I find this item is great paired with the smart shade makeup. it blends easily and well, and covers up discolored spots well.

Nice Idea, bad execution. The smart shade, skin-tone matching idea is brilliant! If only it worked! The color is completely off and super obvious.

I have been using this for almost a year and I like it for a quick touch up under the eyes and under the nose
( I have little broken viens there). I find that it blends very well with a creamy texture. It matches my fair,blotchy skin tone perfectly. My only complaint is the smell.

I have very light skin and very dark circles under my eyes. I guess the concealer just adjusted to dark colour under my eyes because it did not dot he job of hiding the circles at all :S. I found it to be too liquid, and the little grains of brown shade sometimes would just not blend well with the rest of the mixture leaving a dark-brown line. I think there are better products out there.

Well first of all, isn't the concept of a concealer to be a different shade than the skin which you are trying to conceal? This concept just doesn't make sense really. So I bought it just out of curiosity. I will say I like the creamy texture of it especially around the under eye area or over a breakout, but, like I suspected, the 'smart shade technology' doesn't work all that well. I bought the light formula, yet for some reason when I apply it to the lightest part of my face, my forehead, it goes dark brown. It's kind of ridiculous really. I would only use it paired with something else, and only minimal amounts of it. There are much better products out there that do not arbitrarily assign a shade to your face.

the darkest shade is medium, and when i tried it, it was verry light. the colour didn't blend at all and my skin isn't even that dark, it's only a lighter brown. i don't recommend this product to anyone with tanned skin.

Great product. No more dark circles and undetectable under my foundation. Also doesn't make undereye wrinkles stand out like some products do.
