that´s my main skin issue-flat,red spots from past breakouts (guess my skin doesn´t heal very good). but I still get new breakouts too, but very few.

So I need a concealer (I prefer a creamier one..easier to blend I think) for that, with medium to heavy coverage.

I heard that greens even out reds and I know that for example MAC does a Color Corrector in Green (although I didn´t like their Color Corrector in Peach for dark circles).

but wouldn´t the green show up even under foundation? *confused* or should I just get one in the color of my skin (NC 30)

hope you girls can help. actually, I KNOW you can
(you already helped me to find my HG concealer for my undereye circles. THANX AGAIN!!!!)

What's your HG concealer for your undereye circles?

Oddly enough, I'm finding WnW's Coverall Stick in medium to be quite effective for me. I'm NC35 so it might work well for you. However, it's not too creamy, but does a great job w/spot coverage.

Like Trisha suggested, try the BB Blemish Cover Stick. I've heard mixed reviews on it & think that it might be what you're looking for. Armani makes a potted concealer which is quite creamy & does a lovely job w/hiding anything I need.

i use physicians formula green concealer, which turns to powder when you blend it in, and it works SO well. when i gently blend it in, there's no green. i had a massive, red zit above my lip (good place, right?) and when i put a little of this on, it just looked like a bump with no color. i love it! it's like, $4, too.

If you are still prone to getting new acne, make sure you get a noncomedogenic (won't clog pores) concealer -- makeup labeled "oil free" may still contain other greasy ingredients that can clog your pores.

Right now I am using L'Oreal Air Wear concealor. It seems to work fine for me, and it dries to a powder finish which is a little unusual -- just make sure you blend it fast because it dries pretty quickly! It also tends to cake up in fine lines so I don't like it for my undereye circles, but it works fine for acne. But it is a better match to my skin than my previous concealor and only costs $10.
I am also using L'Oreal Mattique foundation which provides a medium coverage -- it can hide the lighter pink healing blemishes and half-way hide the redder spots, then I just come in with the concealor and touch up what the foundation can't cover. Set it all with a loose powder and it lasts all day


The other concealor that I've tried is Prescriptives Camoflauge Cream -- I think it runs somewhere between $20 and $30, but one tube probably lasts me at least a year! (I used it for a long time because my dermatologist made me
) It did do a good job of hiding the redness, but none of their shades matched my skin perfectly so I finally quit using it. But this has a creamier texture than the L'Oreal so you may like it!
