So I have to say I really do love this concealer! It makes my under eyes look awake and fresh and truly looks beautiful all day. My only reason for 4 stars is the color. I originally purchased 3.5 and it was a bit too dark and yellow so I then purchased 2.0 thinking it would be a better match but it's too light! Now I mix them which makes a pretty nice match but I think 3.0 will be the perfect color for me once I run out of these two. As someone with more neutral to yellow undertones this works for me but if you have very cool undertones this may not be the best in the way of a color match. Definitely love this stuff though and would recommend!
I'm a huge fan of Kosas, and was excited when they came out with a concealer. Unfortunately, the formula didn't work well on my skin. I purchased both 02 and 03 - both read fairly yellow on my skin, and both tended to get a little cakey no matter how I applied them. This was not ideal, but workable. For me, one of the biggest bummers was after sitting on my vanity for about a month both of the top/handle pieces had significant cracks around with product starting to accumulate in the cracks, just from regular normal handling. I'd be worried about ever putting them in a bag due to leaking, or even storing them flat.
I’m 24 and this is my first time buying a concealer and I’m very impressed. I didn’t want anything that felt heavy or looked cakey and this is perfect for that imo. I would consider this to be light to medium coverage depending on how much you use. I have combo/oily skin and it has so far been able to last me through my whole work day running around a grocery store putting up sale signs without looking super gross. Idk how much of a difference it makes but I have been using the milk blur powder to set this and while idk if I’d reccomend that product for my oily skin folks in the summer it has been doing a good enough job.
So, application is easy, the undertone is flawless, and it looks just like skin. And let me tell you, I’ve tried every concealer under the stars, and after a hot day in Austin, Texas of running around with my husband in the heat, sweating nonstop, constantly dabbing my face, this stuff never budged. I didn’t even have to set it. I’m never changing concealers again.
Works so well!! Love this product.
