Noo! I wouldn't recommend that one, it's really hard to blend,
I only ever had trouble with it.

Are you only after liquid type? If you're open to others, this is awesome:

Works perfectly for me
Hides tiredness and dark shadows as well as blemishes, yay

I really recommend this one: http://www.clinique.co.uk/product/15...pes/index.tmpl

My skin has a few annoying blemishes at the minute and it hides them really well. Definitely the best concealer I've found so far

Nope, haven't had any new outbreaks while using it!

I actually got that one free when buying Clinique perfume at Christmas. :P So I had no clue if it was any good, I was definitely pleasantly surprised!

MAC studio finish is really good and heavy duty so great for spots.

L'oreal Touche Magique has been my favourite for about 4 years, although I don't wear it any more because I can't use make-up removers. It gives good, natural-looking coverage, comes in lots of shades, lasts a long time on the skin and a single "pen" lasts me 8 months (which is excellent considering that it costs about £7)! It's also never aggravated my acne-prone skin, unlike lots of the supposedly "medicated" concealers which have either given me red, flaky patches or clogged pores. If you use Liz Earle's Spot-On pen to treat and then cover the blemish with Touche Magique you should find that it's barely noticable and goes away much faster .

If you haven't already tried it then I really recommend that you test L'oreal Touche Magique next time your cooncealer runs out, I've had the Max Factor as well and found the L'oreal version to be practically identical but much cheaper as long as you can find the right shade .

Oooh thanks for that! I'm always looking for a similar concealer but a bit cheaper so I might hunt around and see if I can find my shade!

You're welcome! There are loads of shades, I actually found that my only problem was that there were so many to choose between (ended up going with Neutral 0-2 but I could easily have gone for Warm 0-2 as well). You really do need to try a tester against your jawline because the coloured plastic ends absolutely do no correspond in any way to the colour inside the tube (or any human skin colour I've ever seen)! It also looks alarmingly intense in liquid form but blends remarkably well into the skin, I never used to wear foundation or powder and still nobody could tell I was wearing concealer.

Only downside is that as it's quite popular it tends to sell out fast, for some reason Tesco Extra tends to have more shades in stock than most places...

I'd +rep you but I've ran out for today! I'll rep you tomorrow!! I always test things like concealer, foundation or blusher on my skin before buying so that's not a problem for me. I know what you mean about not having to wear foundation but I'm deathly white so I really need it

Ahh we don't have a Tesco Extra here but I'm sure I'll pick it up in Superdrug or Boots!
