I bought a tube of Mary Kay Concealer at a party I went to.  I had never been impressed with the concealers I had tried previously.  This one is definitely better.  It does not look like I am wearing any makeup, but it covers up blemishes completely.  It is a very natural color and blends well.  It lasts all day and I never need to reapply it.

The only problems with this concealer is that it can be difficult to remove and it doesn't cover up the dark circles under my eyes (genetic).  If I try to apply more to cover them, the concealer tends to crease and make them look worse.  To remove it, I frequently have to scrub more than once.  The staying power that keeps it lasting through the day is the same thing that makes it not want to come off.  (This isn't too bad if it is used sparingly.)

It is pricier than the other concealers that I have used, but a very little bit is all that is needed to cover problem areas, so a small tube lasts for a long time.  This is one product that I will certainly order again.

I usually love Mary Kay cosmetics, so I was surprised about this item.  Mary kay used to cater to those of us with more rosy or cool undertones, but lately they seem to be getting warmer and warmer.  The concealer should have helped, but it ended up calling more attention to my dark areas then hiding them.  The shades were either too light or too dark (or just too warm), so it didn't look natural.  Also, it didn't adhere to the dark area very well - it was a bit too sheer to really mask my undereye circles.  It was easy to apply, though, and I did like the tube.  A little really does go a long way.  I also love the product guarantee, so I really wasn't out anything.  I also like the ingredients they use in their products - the company takes care not to add something that is proven detrimental for your skin.  I would try a sample of this with your rep before getting it - it will save you some hassle.

Mary Kay concealer works and lasts a long time!

By 

from Dayton, OH

Comments about Mary Kay Concealer - All Shades:

I have used Mary Kay products for a number of years and ave always been pleased with the concealer. The trick I found to getting the most out of the concealer is to remember that less is better. I just dab a little under my eyes and blend it. it then blendsd in nicely with my foundation, and I'm done. When I have put more on, thinking it will conceal better, it actually makes dark circels worse because it is then too heavy and doesn't blend well with the foundation.

Mary Kay concealer is definitely a great bargain -- tremendous shelf life, which is good because it lasts FOREVER! This really can't be a huge profit product for Mary Kay! The concealer comes in different shades, so it is not a "one size fits all" product. They used to make concealer in different colors to neutralize rather than conceal, but I think that the current skin tone shades work just as well.

So for me, the key to success with the concealer is to use just a small amount and be sure to blend!

Works like a charm if you have the right color.

By 

from Madison, WI

Comments about Mary Kay Concealer - All Shades:

I started using Mary Kay products about 15 years ago. I truly believe that this concealer is the best that I have ever tried; however, you need the right color in order for it to look good. The wrong shade can make the skin look unnatural, but I think all makeup is like this. I used this to cover my zits over the teenage years, which was a lifesaver. I have seen this concealer cover bruises and tattoos as well for staging purposes. Isn't that amazing? I think Mary Kay makes very good quality products. The fun part is that a little can go a long way. I don't remember having to buy a new concealer in over 2 years. The little tube can last a long time. I know Mary Kay can be a little pricey, but that's really the only complaint that I have. Shop on E-bay and look for deals. Never pay full price, but don't sacrifice beauty for another product. Calling all girls out there, you won't be disappointed here.

Covers great

By 

from Fort Wayne, IN

Comments about Mary Kay Concealer - All Shades:

I have used this product for many years and I continue to buy it.  While Mary Kay has sneakily decided to decrease the ounces per tube (and keeping the price high), I still feel that this product does a wonderful job.  I use it as my base layer for the largest blemishes that stand out more than any other.  It conceals blemishes quite nicely, and there are obviously many many shades to choose from - for every race you can imagine!  It blends well and I do not end up looking fake after useage of this product (haha!).  I use several other Mary Kay items in conjunction with this concealer product.  Even though many people often perceive their products to be too expensive for the value, I disagree.  Buy whatever works for you though!  I would suggest Mary Kay's concealer to any friend looking for a high quality degree of coverage and for someone who is willing to pay a little more for such a product.

One tube lasts forever.

By 

from Kennewick, WA

Comments about Mary Kay Concealer - All Shades:

I was hesitant to use Mary Kay due to it's limited availability and my perception that all of their cosmetics were insanely expensive.  However, when a friend invited me to a makeup trial about two and a half years ago, I went along and tried samples of a few things, this concealer included.  I ended up purchasing a tube of this concealer, which I generally use sparingly around my eyes, and have been using it ever since.  I use the light ivory color, which matches my skin tone very well, and blends in with the foundation I use.  It lasts all day, makes my eyes a bit brighter, and makes me look awake.  A tube of this is a bit expensive by drugstore makeup standards, but the fact that you can try it out with a Mary Kay representative and make sure it works for you, as well as the fact that one tube lasts for months, makes it worth the cost.  I'm sure I've wasted much more on sub-par drugstore concealer than the little extra I've spent on a concealer I know works very well for me.

Best Concealer Ever...

By 

from Orlando, FL

Comments about Mary Kay Concealer - All Shades:

Ladies you can't go wrong with Mary Kay's concealer and a little goes a long way. Although I've been using MK's Miracle Set products for awhile, I recently began using the concealor to a few blemishes left behind from blackheads I used to have. My skin looks flawless. I use bronze 2 and if you're unsure as to what complexion may be right for you, ask your MK consultant.

Goes on my face every day!

By 

from Bozeman, MT

Comments about Mary Kay Concealer - All Shades:

I have been using Mary Kay's concealer for years.  I have pale skin and suffer from dark circles around mye yes no matter what.  I use a tiny bit under my eyes and on my eye lids.  Boom - I have fresh looking eyes every day!  The tube is pretty small.. but it will last a LONG time. . I swear mine last like a year because you only have to use such a tiny amount of the concealer to really cover something.

I also have hormonal breakouts and use the Mary Kay concealer to cover those up as well.  A tiny dab blends it with the rest of my skin, giving my face a flawless appearance.  It doesn't stay on all day, but is easy to reapply throughout the day if it gets smudged off.  If it is on an area of your face that doesn't get touched, it stays all day long.  I couldn't survive without this product because it does such a good job of evening out my skin tone and brightening my eyes up.  It is well worth the price!

long wearing, and covers up my blemishes!

By 

from Lambertville, MI

Comments about Mary Kay Concealer - All Shades:

I am someone who wants a concealer that I don't have to reapply, that provides adequate coverage and that matches my fair skin tone.  I have had a lot of problems with concealers that stick out like a sore thumb on my face, that don't last throughout the day on my oily skin, and that are either too sheer or too heavy in their coverage.  Mary Kay Signature Concealer in Light Ivory meets and even exceeds my criteria for a great concealer!  It provides moderate coverge that works on red blemishes, brown spots and on acne scar spots.  It does not cause my skin to break out more, which some concealers do.  It disappears on my skin because the light ivory matches my complexion so well.  And, I can even work out, and as long as I don't wipe it directly, it stays on-even through swimming!  It removes easily at the end of the day with cleanser.  One tube lasts me 6 months, even with daily use, so it is well worth the price.  I have one at home and one in my purse for quick touch-ups.  I highly recommend this concealer!

Mary Kay Concealer is a life-saver!

By 

from Raleigh, NC

Comments about Mary Kay Concealer - All Shades:

I've used so many different brands of concealer, that when a friend selling Mary Kay mentioned her concealer, I was skeptical.  She promised it was wonderful, and I agreed to let her come by and "make me over."  I love the Mary Kay service where a consultant comes to your home, recommends a color, lets you apply it yourself and decide if it's the right color or if you want to try another.  And that they guarantee their product....even if you've used a bunch and decide you're not satisfied, you get 100% of your money back!  So what is there to lose?  Anyways, she came over, and I tried the concealer in Ivory 1 - and could not believe how little product it took to go a long way. It takes almost half the amount I was using of the drugstore brand concealers.  My friend told me Mary Kay makes almost no money off of concealer b/c it lasts so long.  I believe her!  And it doesn't look cakey or too thick.  Just dollop a TINY bit on your finger, and blot, blot, blot.  I use most of it under my eyes as I have dark circles and fair skin, and as needed on blemishes.  I've even used it on my husband's blemishes before!
