The shade medium is suitable for people of NC30-35 skin. The undertone is quite yellow which I'm happy about. Other than MAC concealers, all concealers I've tried had beige or pink undertone.
As you can see, the consistency of this concealer is paste-like thick. I usually put a few tiny dots under my eye and blend them with a fluffy brush. For blemishes, I mostly just use my fingers to apply and blend.
I can safely say that this is so far the best concealer I've tried in terms of coverage. Compared to my MAC Studio Finish, I think it looks less cakey and is more buildable. It's also waterproof so it stays on even when you sweat.
My single complain about this concealer is that it takes quite some time to really 'set.' I have to pat and pat before I can be happy with how the concealer looks. Otherwise it'll just look like I'm putting a yellow gunk on my skin. I also notice that this concealer tends to sink into fine lines a bit.
Overall, this is a good concealer if you expect medium to full coverage. I will continue to use it both as under-eye and blemish cover-up. I'm glad I picked it up.
Have you tried this concealer or any other Laura Geller products?
