The pic I've scanned above features the color
"light". Which is, unremarkably enough, truly a light tone (not pale or medium), and a warm neutral. You might
be wondering why, as an Asian, I did not choose a yellow-toned concealer. In fact, whatever darkness I do have under my
eyes, though slight, is yellowish rather than blue, and yellow concealers frankly make me look jaundiced. I suppose someone with blue circles would prefer a yellow concealer, but... [shrugs]
This is a great concealer, perhaps not as great as my beloved YSL Touche Eclat, but this is considerably cheaper. It's got medium coverage, a lovely velvety (but not powdery) texture, like real skin. It blends really well, and comes in in brush-applicator form (which
is good for dotting on under the eyes). It banishes mild to moderate dark circles well. I don't really know how it does on acne, because I never cover up pimples, but it lightens and evens well. It's got SPF 10 (titanium dioxide), and kinetin, but I wouldn't vouch for the efficacy of either. Don't let the hype fool you, this is a nice, creamy, but
light concealer that blends well and looks natural, without much fuss.
It's good stuff, and the only reason I've not given it a ten is because it's just not Touche Eclat.
