Most Helpful Positive Review Easy to spread and long lasting
I'm a big fan of bareminerals foundation and this is the first time I tried their concealer.
I'm satisfied with this concealer overall. It's easy to spread and buildable too. The coverage is decent. It evens out the skin tone and lines. however my large pores is still very visible.
I have very problematic skin as you can see in the first picture. Large pores, oily t zone and dry cheek plus chin and redness.especially flakey skin in winter. And occasional breakout. Of various face cosmetics I tried, bm is the only brand that never gave me breakout.
I wore this cncealer for a whole week before I wrote this review. I wore this for 6 to 8 hours every day and magically it didn't give me any breakout.
The first photo is me without any makeup. The second photo is with only foundation . The third one had concealer on. the forth photo is after 6 hours. As you can see the makeup didn't smudge with my oily t zone( with some shine)
Overall I'm very satisfied with this product especially it didn't give me any breakouts.
Most Helpful Critical Review Just OK
When I first took this out of the package and swatched it, I was impressed. The formula was creamy and smooth. I liked that it was listed as being one swipe coverage and that it was non acnegenic. However, using the product did not live up to the expectations. I found it entirely too thick to use under the eyes. I decided it would be better to use around my cheek area where I have a lot of rosacea. But, it seemed to take away my foundation coverage and I had to layer it on. After I blended it out, I set my face using my normal setting powder and then moved on to contour and blush. It was as if the concealer created a barrier and no other products would blend on top. I was left with large splotches where no other product would adhere. It just did not perform well. The only way I was able to make it work was to warm it up on my fingertip and then softly pat it on blemishes after all of the other makeup was complete.

I have finally found my hg concealer. I have been searching high and low for a clean beauty concealer that actually works. This covers, looks natural and is long lasting on my skin. I can use it under my eyes and it actually covers my dark circles yet doesn't look cakey or dry. Doesn't settle into fine lines or crease either. WIN! Plus I don't need a separate concealer to cover my acne or dark spots. This one concealer does it all and blends so easily into the skin with just a dab of my finger. I threw away all my other concealers and will be sticking to this one from now on! LOVE IT!!

I've been using this product for years. It
Goes on smoothly and covers redness or underlying darkness well.
Another great product!!!!
Mar from Ohio
I have bought their products for more than 20yrs for blotchy skin and this is just another great product for undercover use.
not enough product for price
Jay from mi
Worked, well ran out fast! I love all bareminerals products I've tried. I will not buy this again though it didnt come with enough product.

Great coverage on middle aged skin
Charlotte from California
The creasing is SO bad I almost lost faith in this brand. I love their foundation so thought I'd give the concealer a try but it turns out to be so patchy every time. Would not buy again.
GREAT Product on sale
over 50 from Houston, TX
So far I like this product - I generally do not use concealer due to time but due to Covid I have had a bit more time on my hands - I work in a professional atmosphere, a busy mom so not a lot of time available. I like quick and easy. It was half off and the brand is reliable (have used other products and satisfied)
- I also bought the powder to compare so, far I like the idea of concealer going on under foundation.
I would buy again only if on sale - so not sure if I am loyal (yet)
Good, but more medium coverage
Stella from Los Angeles, CA
I used this product for my bridal make up, but felt like it was more of a medium coverage than full coverage. But I liked that it was easy to use and apply. It blends easily into my foundation.
Not that great! Too thick
me from nowhere
First of all I love most bareminerals products. I'm 43 have fine lines. This concealer enhanced my fine lines. It's too cakey and thick. I tried it 2 times. Uses with sponge then concealer brush both ways I got the same issue. I returned it
I DONT RECOMMEND.
Great Basic Concealer
Manologal from WA
I am typically light to light-medium with cool undertones in foundations and concealers depending upon the brand, but I would say this runs light. I ordered medium and it is comparable to a light to light-medium tone. If you are using it as a brightener then that works, but when covering the occasional blemish I prefer to go darker than my norm as I don't want to highlight it. I can make this work, but just know it runs light. It's preference, but I don't use stick concealers under my eyes; for that I use a liquid. I did use the same brand in the liquid form in light and it is the right color as a match to my skin, not lighter to highlight.
Rocky from Raleigh NC
This concealer held up all day without showing my wrinkles.
Really like it, little goes a long way
Bigtexashair from Boston, MA
I really enjoy this concealer, it doesn't crease on me, the color is great and I can use a finger or a brush to blend it. It last all day. I do set it with a powder, it's all I'm wearing now with having to wear a mask all day every day. Looks really natural but great coverage.
My new favorite
Jay from Chicago
This concealer is amazing! It blends out perfectly and it gives you a very natural look. Also medium to buildable coverage. I've used a sponge and a brush to blend it out and it blends out perfectly with both tools. Also stays on all day.
Covered better than the wand/liquid type concealor
Sara from IL
I used this concealor to cover some red spots and sun marks on my face along with my undereye circles. The color was good and the full coverage hid the spots better than the liquid concealer with a wand that I had been using prior to this one. The only issue is that it made lines more obvious in my dark circles so I don't think this is the best one for areas with fine lines.
BluBrit from Ohio
I really liked how natural this concealer looked. It didn't settle into my fine lines and it didn't crease. It brightened up my under eye area but it didn't cover my really dark under eye circles completely. I would buy it again.
Great Cream Concealer
Amanda from Columbia, SC
This concealer is not at all hard or chalky. Goes on smooth and blends easily with a damp beauty blender. I will say, order lighter than you think you need if you are trying to conceal and brighten your under-eye (which is what I bought it for). I wear BarePro in Flax and even though the color-matcher said I should go with #4, the swatch on my screen looked darker than I wanted. I went with #1 (the lightest) and it's perfect.
Olivia P from Raleigh, NC
This stuff is AMAZING! Literally one of the best concealers Ive ever used. It's so creamy, blends like a dream, and has amazing staying power. I'll usually put it under my eyes and T zone, set it with a little powder, and my complexion looks so even I don't even need foundation. I hope BM never stops making this product!
MrsLindy from Maryland
I'm 40 and have some fine lines under my eyes so I'm picky with concealers. This was ok but I didn't find it particularly easy to blend nor was the coverage I'm looking for really there.
I returned this and picked up another bottle of my current fave (Colourpop Pretty Fresh) instead. That one is just magical for creating a smooth appearance on lines and pores!
Holy grail concealer
Sarah from CA
I bought this concealer on a whim because I needed a new one, and I LOVE it. I hadn't used a stick concealer since I was in middle school so I did not have high expectations, but this is amazing.
I wake up very early for work and I'm too lazy to apply a full face of makeup, so I only use concealer and mascara, meaning the quality of the concealer is key. I need a concealer that stays put, blends well (and quickly so I can wake up late haha), doesn't oxidize, doesn't break out or irritate my sensitive skin, and doesn't look too harsh next to the rest of my unconcealed skin. I swipe it under my eyes and pat it in with my fingers, and then apply it around my nose and chin and any other red areas and blend it in with a blurring brush.
This is called a full coverage concealer, but I would consider it a medium coverage concealer. It can be built up to higher coverage, though. This is perfect for anyone looking for a natural, low key concealer for every day wear.

I use this everyday!!!
Lesli123 from undisclosed
This works wonders as an under eye concealer. Blends beautifully and lasts all day. I love it!
Jessa from USA
I use this with the BAREPRO liquid foundation and it's amazing. I was skeptical at first because i'm so used to liquid concealers, but the stick actually makes it easier to apply. It's small but a little goes a long way. Blends seamlessly and does an excellent job of covering blemishes.

I usually use tarte 22n. Which I like but I noticed it would cause tiny hard ball pimple(?) like reactions very occasionally then, I would need to use a peel to get rid of them...barepro light neutral 04 is a very decent alternative in terms of lighter coverage. I find that I can't apply much before it exaggerates my fine lines. I wish it brightened up my eye area. Tarte did that somehow... as for longevity, barepro lasts on me even if I've been sweating. I think its a decent product and will probably stick with it over tarte, simply because my skin is so sensitive to other "clean" lines. Bareminerals has never caused my skin to react.
Hands down, the best concealer
Cappling from Fort Worth, Texas
If you are wanting a concealer that can cover ANY darkness, blemish, or go throughout the day w/o creasing... this is your best bet! i LOVE the shade range as well! It's easy to blend out & can easily pair with all foundations!
Nancy from VA
This is one of the best concealer sticks for discoloration. It's buildable and doesn't need set with powder to stay put. I use shade 3 for dark circles and shade 2 around my nose.
