I got this at CVS when they were having an ECB deal of $7 ECG with the purchase of any PF Cosmetics (way back when). So in theory one could have bought something for less than $7 and still get the ECB (aka a "money maker") but I wasn`t sure at the time so I ended up getting this concealer which was around $7-$8. I wanted to try out a green concealer but I don`t have problem with redness in my skin so I opted for this 2-in-1 because it came with the green and a flesh tone concealer. At first I didn`t really like the concealer at all. It`s really light and somewhat of a thin consistency. I felt that it didn`t cover up any acne scars but instead accentuates it. I had patches of light skin that didn`t blend in well with the rest of my face. With the green, I couldn`t use it because of the lack of redness and a little bit of the green concealer goes a long way.
After a while of not using it, I went back to see if I could make it work. And surprisingly, yes I could. The problem I had before was that I wasn`t using the right tools to blend it out. Before I would use my fingers but I find that a cosmetic sponge or brush works way better. I also don`t really use this for my scars anymore but mainly for dark circles. This concealer actually worked great underneath my eyes.

<dl> <dt><strong>PROS:</strong></dt> <dd>- Option of having a flesh tone and color correcting color (green for redness or yellow for dark circles)</dd>
<dd>- Doesn`t feel heavy on skin</dd>
<dd>- SPF 10</dd>
<dt><strong>CONS:</strong></dt> <dd>- Not for every skin tone; better for light skin tones.</dd> <dd>- Contains parabens (this doesn`t bother me much but usually I expect PF to be paraben-free)</dd>
<dd>- Tends to look dry and cakey after a few hours</dd>
<dd>- Light color wouldn`t work on every skin tone</dd></dl>

<em>Overall: </em>I like this concealer but it`s not great. It does some of the things it claims. It`s nice to have when travelling since it`s packaging is like a lipgloss. I would say it has light coverage and can be built upon but it doesn`t look natural on my skin if I go beyond the light coverage. I have used the green on a pimple before and it did cancel out the red but I don`t use the green as much as the light.
