I don't usually wear heavy coverage makeup products, but I have been searching for a good concealer to cover my dark circles and dark spots on days that I have to be more dressed up. This was actually a last-minute purchase from Ulta-- I didn't have any makeup with me and just needed to buy something quick and cheap to wear for an event that same night. I'd planned on returning the product the next day, but I ended up liking it too much and deciding to keep it. I've tried plenty of expensive concealers in the past and found them all cakey and the colors to be either too dark/too light/ too dull. But this concealer is creamy and provides good coverage without becoming cakey or drying. A little bit goes a long way, and my skin doesn't get irritated and break out after using it. It looks natural and doesn't give you that ghostly undertone that a lot of other concealers give you. It's a great quality product for a fraction of the cost of other concealers, and it's quickly become one of my favorites.
I was looking to try new lip formulations and so decided to go with this. This lip product has an almost watery consistency. It goes on smoothly and very highly pigmented. It starts drying down almost as soon as you put it on, but that's okay because it spreads and blends pretty easily. I bought the shades Tutti Frutti (goes on very dark!) and Berry ripe. Within about 10 minutes of application, it felt dry and a bit tacky. It was practically transfer proof at that point - tested it out by blotting it with facial tissue. It left only a very faint mark. I agree with others' observations that it tastes unpleasant. The after taste is bitter. I think the bitter ingredient is what makes this transfer proof because years ago, I tasted the same thing on a product that was advertised as such. The stain that gets left behind after eating is considerably more pink than the original color. All these observations are after trying the product brand new. on the day I bought it. I am feeling a little disappointed at reading others' reviews that it starts breaking down after just a few months. I suppose it's a good thing that the container is pretty small. As of now, I don't think I will return this product, but am 100% happy with them and I don't think I will buy it again.

I purchased the twice shy and the cherry up colors and WOW! These lip stains go on so glossy and never make my lips feel dry. The stain will last throughout the whole day and Ive only needed to touch up once after eating. Will be buying again!

This concealer is so good. I just bought a restock of this conceler and I recommend it to my friend. My friend loved it! The coverage is so good. It covers all of the dark circles. It is also hydrating and brends seamlessly. The formula is very buildable and dewey.

I wanted to like this concealer, but it really disappointed me. First I bought shade light 40 N because it seemed like my shade, but it oxidized to a much darker shade. So then I took it back and got shade light 20 N which oxidizes to about the correct shade for me (I usually use the Nyx Bare With Me concealer in vanilla). What I do like about the conealer is that it is pretty light-weight and has a medium to buildable coverage. However, that quality cannot save it. It advertizes as being creamy and hydrating, but I found it to be the opposite. It dries down to a matte finish, which clings to texture. It also creases so badly. I tried a bunch of techniques to prevent the creasing, but nothing helped. I really wanted to find a more affordable concealer, but I would skip this one and go with the Nyx concealer.

Very pretty color. Lasts pretty long, longer than elf, but not the whole day. Depending all that you put your lips on it can last half day or several hours.
dani from sioux city
-it oxidized ( odly my perfext shade) but still oxidizes pretty bad
- pretty strong odor
- would burn when applied to the outer corner of my eye lid and would cause my skin around my eyes to redden and get super dry and raw
decent product would rather spend money on something else
was not a fan if thus concealer

I have used this concealer for years now! I typically don't wear makeup but when I do, I only use this concealer for my base. On its good days, its super blendable with just the right amount of coverage and will last all day and night. I've had days though where it won't blend, clings to my dry patches, or creases.
I have very acne prone and combination skin due to retinoids. I've found that a thin layer of aquaphor over my problem areas after skin care keeps my dry patches underway and this concealer fresh.

This concealer oxidizes so bad and it creases so quick. I will say that I tried this concealer on my mom and it looked amazing on her the entire time. This product may work well for people with mature skin.

I had very high hopes for this product because I have dry skin and ADORE the Pretty Fresh foundation, tinted moisturizer, and setting spray. Plus, I was looking to find a more affordable alternative to my favorite high end concealer. However, this always looks cakey on my face and I find it difficult to blend. It's not very creamy and never lays right on my skin
Mady from Texas
I have been using this concealer for the past few years and I really like it. The coverage is nice and I can wear this by itself or over foundation. It will cling to dry patches though.
bea from michigan
Im not sure why this concealer seperates so badly every time i use it. i use a water based primer because the first ingredient in this concealer is water. So im not sure what the problem is.
Jessica from New Jersey
This goes on nicely and has decent staying power. That said, the "Big Apple" color is pink from the start, not red. It's a lovely bright pink, but not what I was looking for.
Like most lip stains, it shows any cracks, dryness, or build-up on your lips, so using a sugar scrub ahead of time is a good idea. (You can make some yourself with a little sugar and a cooking oil like coconut.)

I bought this in July and I hated it for my lips it tasted horrible had no smell and came of really fast. But I recently started using it on my cheeks and it is so good. It is the perfect texture and literally holds all day. < 3

As soon as I put this lipstain on my lips started to feel so strange almost like tingly? I don't know how to describe it but it wasn't normal. After wearing it for a few hours my lips also started peeling!! Immediately returned it.

I have an obsession with lipstick and gloss but this stuff smells STRANGE. Idk what it is but it smells a tad like elmers glue. It is a very pretty color, its glossy, and it stains, but if you don't like being able to smell your lips I wouldn't reccomend this product.
EMily from Miami, Fl
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS CONCEALER!! This has been the smoothest concealer I have ever used. I've been wanting to find the perfect one and THIS IS IT. No creases, blends smoothly, covers dark under eyes perfectly. I would for sure recommend to a friend.

I ordered one of these online in the color Tutti Fruity and it came half empty. I contacted Colourpop and they immediately sent me a new one, but the replacement has even less product than the original. When I first opened up the replacement I realized you can see all the way through to the bottom of the bottle. I have pictures to prove this but I can't seem to add pictures to the review. Super disappointed and I used to love Colourpop but clearly they are ripping off their customers. To top it all off, it doesn't even stain my lips. I kept it on for longer than 6 hours and it still didn't work.
kara from Tampa, Fl
for me it's very light coverage, doesn't really cover up my eye bags cause they're dark but it def lightens them up. I have dry skin and I've only experienced this concealer coming off/Cracking on the side of my nose because I wear glasses, I don't wear foundation so this is also good for a natural look but next time I'm gonna probably buy something that has more coverage. But it's very light on the face feels like you don't have anything on, (I couldn't really smell it until like I put it closer to my nose but it's bearable and nothing bad tbh

I love these lip stains and used them regularly. Howevver after about 3 to 4 months the product separated and smelled very odd. All I did was keep it in my makeup drawer.
I love this product so much I've bought it in multiple shades BUT unfortunately it had a weird sour smell and always separates not long after opening. The packaging makes it really difficult to mix it back together and once it's separated, it doesn't perform as well anymore :(

Love this long lasting product!
Sofia from Ocean Springs, MS
I love this concealer. It truly is a ride or die product for me. The color match is so perfect, it's literally seamless. I wish there was a foundation that matched! I worked at an ulta when I found it, and I tried color mayching woth EVERY SINGLE foundation, and nothing came close. Im a pale lady too so I was thinking it wouldnt be too hard but boy was I wrong.
HOWEVER: it smells horrendous. It literally smells like what I imagine lead paint smells like. Super chemically, paint remover, expired glue smelling. That is my only con aside feom the fact I cant fond a foundation match.
Otherwise: I highly recommend this product. Especially for those who have dry or combination skin.
Kim from IE
Honestly love it ! When first applying feels thin, cooling, and nonsticky. I got the cool big apple and ice pop. Cant wait to try more.
