My Thoughts: I love these concealers! As you can see, I own them in every color, and they are a regular part of my wedding day makeup kit. When I finally switch over to airbrush only in my commerical/private practice, I'll be taking these along with me. They blend amazingly well with my airbrush makeup, both being silicone based. Straight out of the tube, they are very pigmented but very creamy and a thin enough consistency that you can get great coverage without a lot of product. It's the perfect concealer for people who wear a sheer tinted moisturizer or BB cream instead of a heavier coverage foundation. It will look completely natural on the skin while still providing coverage.
The only thing negative I can find to say about these are the color fair is super super light. I haven't found anyone who really needed a color that light straight out of the tube, but I could see someone of my coloring using it as a highlighter to brighten the under eye area and sculpt the face for a contoured look without a shimmery highlighting product. Also, you shouldn't use their "applicator", and squeeze it out onto the back of your hand or other clean surface and apply it to your face from there.
If I'm applying it a bride, I need to know that it's going to be an all day lasting product, and I definitely get that with this concealer. It doesn't settle under the eyes, disappear, or melt with the heat when used on other areas of the face due to its silicone chemistry.
Final Verdict: One of my all time favorite high end concealers and worth the higher price tag for the quality, coverage, and lasting power.
