Rated 4.32 out of 5 stars
I have bought this concealer twice; once earlier this year and I ended up returning it as the concealer would easily crease and look dry after a couple hours of wear. I was disappointed as the concealer applied absolutely beautifully and was the perfect shade match from a concealer I've ever gotten. I have tried many concealers (NYX Can't Stop Wont Stop, Tarte Creamy Shape Tape, Tarte Matte Shape Tape, Maybelline Instant Age Rewind, Maybelline FitMe Concealer, ColourPop PrettyFresh Concealer, Benefit Bo-ing Concealer, ELF Matte Camo Concealer and ELF Hydrating Camo Concealer) and JP takes the cake over all of these, the second best would be the ELF Hydrating Camo Concealer and then the Benefit Bo-ing Concealer.
I decided to give this concealer another chance and chance up my application method- SETTING POWDER IS KEY. Previously, I was just applying the concealer over the ELF matte and poreless or ELF illuminating primer putty, and the concealer would crease easily and look dry. Currently, I have applied the concealer without primer, the Urban Decay Ultra Glow Primer, or a primer specifically for the eyes like the UD Primer Potion.
This concealer HAS TO BE SET, if not it can crease and not give you the desired effect. If you do not want to set your concealer, the Benefit Bo-ing concealer is the only concealer I have used that is self-setting that is long lasting and doesn't crease. I have used the Juvia's Place loose setting powder, Makeup Revolution Loosing Setting Powder, Maybelline FITMe pressed powder, and the ELF Halo Glow setting powder- for whatever reason, this concealer only looks good with the ELF setting powder (on my skin at least). The Juvia's Place powder works, but not as good as the ELF. I almost always set my skin with setting spray and have noticed that the Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray is best, otherwise the NYX Dewy Finish Long Lasting Setting Spray also works well; the concealer also looks good when set with powder, but not set with setting spray.
For application, I apply moisturizer and primer if wanted; then, apply the concealer (a little goes a long way) and use a flat dome brush (like the Morphe M173 or the EcoTools Flat top blending brush set) and use a dabbing/patting motion to blend out the concealer. I use the Juno & Co Microfiber sponge (dry) and use that to set the concealer with setting powder; then I top off the face with setting spray.
I originally searched everywhere for tips on how to make this concealer work for my skin, and unfortunately, it's a trial and error method. Do not give up on this concealer and try a handful of different primers, setting sprays, and setting powder.
For reference, I am fair skinned and have an olive undertone. Shade 19 is the perfect shade match for me.
I unfortunately had severe reactions to these concealers and the matching foundations I got from this range.
I made sure to check how my skin reacted to just concealer alone, foundation alone, and both on my skin together.
I wanted to love this, I swear by this brand's lip products. But I have been suffering with burning pimply allergic reactions to this product that sensitized me to other skincare products that suited my skin just fine before I tried out the foundation and the concealers in this range.
I have to throw this and the foundation out. I don't even want to know what would happen if I return to ever using it again because it caused my eyelids and the surrounding skin to burn and swell up, all over my face I went red and every inch was inflamed, even skin flaking and peeling. I haven't had this happen in YEARS since I've been meticulous about my skincare and sunscreen. So unfortunately I won't be touching anything but the lip products I already have by this brand again. absolutely disappointing, and I'm pretty lucky I am seeing gradual improvement in my skin, but I'm still seeing a doctor to verify my skin is healing properly after weeks of not using the foundation and concealer has still left my skin so delicate and stings a bit when I put on my most soothing products like snail mucin essence, cicaplast baume and rosewater.
As a separate note excluding the reactions, the concealer texture is decent, a bit on the less coverage side in my opinion especially when the foundation for this range is so thick and full coverage. Shade range of the concealers cater to neutral olive tone skin much better than the foundation.
But I can't even use these despite the shade match because something very bad is in these products I got from the Juvia's Place website directly.

If u have dry skin is not for u
MamiCali23 from California
This product is thick & full coverage, so please do NOT use TOO much product. The product is full coverage, takes time to dry so you can blend easily, and leaves a nice finish. I love this product and never had issues other than the product itself leaking which I dislike because I do not like cleaning. Overall 4/5 please fix this issue Juvia nobody has time to clean up

soo soo disappointed with this product, i expected so much more from juvias bcs i love ALLLL their products, expect this one ofc. concealer was soooo creasy clinged on to textures, drying, blended out into NOTHING, had to apply so much and still refused to stick to my under eyes and ive never had a problem liek this before. just iverall super upset about this.
Isa from Yuma Az
I got this concealer to try it out since the tarte one is really expensive but after using it I will never be buying it again. It creased sooooo much and I have literally never had this problem. It is super dry and enhances texture A LOT. I would very much rather pay $31 for a tarte concealer that has never failed me. Never trying other concealers out again I will stay loyal to tarte I learned my lesson.

A little of this goes a LONG way, so a minimalist like me literally just takes a tiny drop and pats it onto blemishes. It stays put all day without powder on those blemishes, though, and I love that it's a sizeable amount in the product!

I've been using this concealer for a few years now and I love it. It is very thick so you have to use it lightly and set it with a good setting powder otherwise it'll crease a lot. The only issue I have is the packaging itself. After a while the product leaks.
Peebz from St. Louis
After several tubes, the product leaks out of the bottle. Not sure why more people havent mentioned this yet because it happens with every tube ive had, making it messy to travel with or to even have at home.
Love the product, but the packaging could use some improvement.
Raquel from Cincinnati
I love this product. The coverage is awesome And is very easy to blend and create new shades and undertones. It's smooth and easy to use. I'm getting other colors for contouring, for sure

I heard this was a dupe for too faced born this way, so dissapointed. Fine when used ANYWHERE but undereye, will crease and product lifts, leaves ashy look under eyes.
Nai from Ohio
Before this concealer I was using the too face born this way but this one might just be better. I use shade 10 and it blends and sits beautifully on my skin. Love the shade range with this concealer as it is not as yellow as the too face. A little goes a long way and i love how much product you get for the price!
Rachel from Los Angeles
such an amazing coverage !!! but its so hard to blend because of how thick it is :( so it gets cakey and creases
Kassandra from Sylmar, CA
I really wanted to like this concealer since im a fully beat, full coverage girl but NO! This concealer is so patchy and so DRYYYYINGG. Dont even get me started on the CREASING. This concealer is so bad! I prep my skin very well and never have problems with any makeup but this concealer is so bad.
Eve from Chicago
I'm never using any other concealer! It's lightweight but full coverage and blends beautifully. J19 is also the ONLY shade I've ever found that matches my neutral undertone. JP didn't owe us white girls a thing but they gave us range anyway. Iconic.
paige from Texas
I used this for my under eyes and it did not give what it should have. It creased even after setting. It some how made me look older and it's hard to blend. But I love all the other products
Alex from Philadelphia, PA
Im always told my skin looks like porcelain when i wear this concealer. Absolutely love it !
lola from phoenix, AZ
I have really dark and deep eyebags and this covers it up really well and I also have eczema on my eyelids and on my face and this doesn't cling onto the dry spots
Tori from Michigan
This concealer blends so nice and is super hydrating.
Chris from NYC
